    I hate snapper cases so much that I have repurchsed some DVDs when they were re-released in keep cases. Unfortunately, that doesn't happen very often.

    Blade II is a two-disc set.

    Alliance/Atlantis distributes titles for New Line Home Entertainment in Canada and A/A uses keepcases.

    Why do they still use those snapper cases. Are they cheaper or do they just think that people like them?[​IMG]

    Richard Smith,

    You already have Blade II, I'm so jealous. I can't wait for this release!

    I like 'em too. Or should I say, the type of case the disc in is of no importance to me.

    Some places (blockbuster does this sometimes) actually put their snapper movies in keepcases. I once saw Austin Powers: The spy who... and it was in a keep-case at walgreens, it was previewed, so I assume the ones you saw were not at a retail store.

    Jason X
    Jason Goes To Hell

    will be snappers as well

    New Line has been using Amary cases more and more, and now with the All about the Benjamins as the first one-disc releases, it looks like the trend will continue. Warner Home Video and New Line Home Entertainment use the snappers because AOL Time-Warner is either the owner or a major share holder in the company (someone know which one?)that produces them, Ivy Hill. And, it looks like Jason Goes to Hell and Jason X will be in keepcases.....

    Marcin: In general I think that applies to all the Infinifilm releases (15 minutes and Blow being the others).

    Right. All About the Benjamins is the first non-Infinifilm single-disc release to be in a keepcase.

    It's not that I hate snappers, but I do dislike having to break up my collection into two separate groupings-keepcases and snappers. I'm a big fan of alphabetizing and this sorta ruins it.

    AOL Time-Warner owns a share in Ivy-Hill and contractually binds Warner Home Video to use the snapper cases.

    Warner Home Video does not force New Line Home Entertainment or HBO Home Video to use the snappers.
