DVD Verdict was a judicial-themed website for DVD reviews. The site was founded in 1999. The editor-in-chief was Michael Stailey, who owned the website between 2004 and 2016, and the site employed a large editorial staff of critics,[1] whose reviews were quoted by sources such as CBS Marketwatch,[2] and were praised by such writers as Anthony Augustine of Uptown.[3]

DVD Verdict also had four sister sites, titled Cinema Verdict, a theatrical movie review site, TV Verdict, a television review site, Pixel Verdict, a video game review site, and DVD Verdict Presents.[4] The last reviews were published in 2017. As of 2021, the site is offline.
