Ivana Redwine is a former writer for Lifewire who wrote about home video and DVD releases for over 10 years. She is the author of several hundred DVD reviews, over a thousand profiles, and dozens of top DVD recommendation lists.

In addition to writing weekly in-depth coverage of new releases, Redwine has done features about the technical and consumer aspects of buying and renting DVDs. She knows the difference between which DVDs are worth renting, which are worth buying, and which are simply a waste of your time and hard-earned money.


Ivana holds a B.A. in art from California State University Long Beach and has taken workshops through the Writers' Program at UCLA Extension.
