anyone else buy the dvd today and open it up to find no insert?
Yep, unfortunately. This no insert thing is really getting on my nerves. As long as there are two notches for an insert there better be one in there.
especially inserts should be included on major releases such as this movie
Inserts are available for the Alliance (Canadian) release.
So that's what's rattling inside my copy! It didn't sound like a loose disc, so I didn't remove the shrinkwrap, figuring that some sort of promo insert was included. What's the big deal with this insert, anyway?
I wasn't expecting it to be included since it is a Buena Vista release.
I too like inserts to be included. Gives you a sense of a "total" package. It also gives you an in-hand guide to chapter stops and many times inside information and pics not included on the disc. Give me the EXTRAS!!!
Well, they may as well start housing DVD's in jewel cases. Just a waste of space now, with no insert.
FRIDA was the only recent BV release with an insert.
Oh well. Still a great DVD though.
Yeah, I'm disappointed. This is a great DVD set with a plethora of extras and then you open it to an empty case. I don't care if it's an expensive 12 page collectible booklet, but at least give me a listing of chapter stops. I may be in the minority, but I use those constantly and always have them beside me when viewing a movie. I'm willing to pay the extra $0.10
I don't understand the big deal with inserts. Unless it is an informative booklet on the movie (like the Bond movies), I could care less if the studios included them.
I'll go to my disc menu if I want to look at chapter stops. I usually watch the movie without worrying about chapter stops anyway.
In the early days of DVD, I would always stick my insert into the front of the DVD to cover up the horrible critics blurbs and widescreen banner.
But I'm in the minority. I have no problems with snappers and I like DVD18s with no disc artwork. To me, the movie on the medium is the most important.
Seems like this is a trend with 2002 Best Picture nominees. First Pianist, now this. Don't know about The Hours, but the madness better stop with TTT!!!
from a rental point of view, snappers and double-sided discs are big no-nos.
case in point - Phone Booth, scratches up the wazoo without even being rented yet!
dunno...but Fox seem to be using substandard discs recently. very easily damaged, scratched from just wiping a cloth across it.
as a store, we mandated that we will not re-order double sided discs after first run. customers will just have to buy it for themselves. They are not worth our time.
I like having the insert because that's where they put the chapter listing.
Disney and Universal have basically abandoned inserts. Perhaps they should follow the route taken in R2, where, instead of inserts, clear amaray cases are used and the cover is double sided, with chapter stops on the reverse of the cover.
Columbia did an R2 with Adaptation - seems like it was simply a SuperBit experiment with covers though.
Yeah, I miss the spoilers in the form of chapter titles.
