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 movie reviews, over a thousand profiles, and dozens of top DVD movie 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 movies are worth renting, which are worth buying, and which are simply a waste of your time and hard-earned money.
