It's a review aggregator, like Rotten Tomatoes and Meta Critic, which is allowed.  It's not a single review of a film, but collects many reviews.  That's how I understand both the guidelines and Ken's comments, anyway.

Individual reviews of the DVD/Blu-ray can be linked.

Neither Rotten Tomatoes (unless handled correctly) and definitely NOT metacritiic have ANY value to speak of. Most of the rottentomatoes have been handle the same way as dvdpascher and just inserted into ALL profiles, regardless of whether or not the review is relevant to a particular version. Metacritic seldon gives any indication of what version they are reviewing and hence are no better than a film review, but from DVD Review poin of view...WORTHLESS.

Link Guidelines
For non-adult profiles, keep all links "safe for work"
For trailers, link only to the hosting pages, not to the movie file directly.
Do not link to individual movie reviews, only review aggregators such as RottenTomatoes. Individual reviews of the media (DVD, Blu-ray) are OK.
Link only to the main page for the site - not to individual sections (trailers, reviews, information, etc)
For links which match the locality of the original content, submit via Title/Production Year. For others, submit via "This Profile Only"


aggregators is no longer an option with the review,

he has renamed the set (because he was asked to since we have single reviews there) - but he has never said that the movie aggegators should no longer be included.
