As you can see, we’re in the midst of some major changes here at DVD Verdict.
The most obvious change to this updated version of DVD Verdict is the format. After years of dealing with site code that has been more broken than working, we’re converting everything over to WordPress. This gives our reviews a cleaner, more easily accessible delivery method for all manner of devices. The downside is there is so much work in reformatting 30,000 pieces of content, it is going to take us quite some time to get back to full strength. We apologize for the inconvenience, broken links, format changes, and wonky search capabilities in the interim. We appreciate your patience as we work through this monumental task.
The less obvious and more profound change is that DVD Verdict won’t be publishing as many new reviews as you’ve come to expect. There’s no hiding the fact that our output has been waning over the past several years. This is due to the inevitability of our lives and careers heading in new and exciting directions. Where in the past you could count on us for several new reviews each and every day of the week, our output will now be far less consistent. However, the level of quality will remain as high as it’s always been.
And don’t forget, there is nine years and more than 1600 hours worth of our audio content — podcasts, interviews, event coverage, and more — over at DVD Verdict Presents… We’re just as proud of this work as we are of our written reviews, and it’s often far more entertaining 🙂
We have been blessed with and grateful for nearly 18 years of passionate writers; valuable studio, distributor, and filmmaker relationships; and most of all your readership. DVD Verdict will live on in ad finitum, for the film and television fan in all of us.
All the best,
Michael Stailey / Melissa Hansen
