I just watched 2 out of the 3 discs in Universal's "High School Reunion Collection" and was appalled to find that they have a 3-minute FORCED promo at the beginning, for the 3 movies I just bought, plus the new Animal House and Meaning of Life discs (the latter erroneously states "For the very first time on DVD", even though it was previously released by Image!) Most of the player controls are locked out while it plays, even the Stop button!! The only alternative to watching it play ALL THE WAY THROUGH, EVERY TIME you play the disc is to visual-scan through it, or quickly hit the Eject button then Play on your remote, which I won't do because that'll probably wear my machine down. Title Select won't work, the Menu button doesn't either, not even chapter-skip- someone obviously wants everybody to see this every time the disc is played! This is the video equivalent of getting several junk emails in a row all selling the same product, or unsolicited telemarketing calls! This is even more annoying than the ones Disney was putting on their discs for a while because those could be chapter-skipped through, and now they let you use the Menu button on their newer discs. Still not ideal, but tolerable. Universal has put out some good titles lately, including some that have been on my want-list for a long time, but 3 minutes of forced trailers is simply inexcusable. Therefore from now on I will boycott anything that is advertised this way, now and on any future discs that may do this. I was considering getting the "Meaning Of Life" special edition, but I already have the Image disc and I resent having the trailer for it shoved in my face, so I've decided to pass on it. Any chance there was of my buying "Animal House" is now gone as well (I have it on CED videodisc and an old VHS copy anyways.) It's the same as if I'd been woken up by a phone call asking me to buy these, or if my email box had been stuffed with ads for them. Incidentally, I'm NOT the type of person who likes to skip over things either- when I first buy a disc I'll watch literally EVERYTHING on it- I even check the Parental Lock and Region Code messages that Universal puts on most of their discs in 3 different languages! I was certainly happy to watch the promos all the way through the first time I played the discs. When I watch these again though I'll want to go straight to the movies however, and they're keeping me from doing this- if it annoys me, I can only imagine how annoyed others are over this.
