    I saw the latest Scooby-Doo DVD's in stores today, and I thought it was hilarious- not the movie, mind you, the cases. They actually took the time to design custom colors of the snapper case for the Widescreen/FS versions. Anybody out there want an "artistically designed" snapper case? Exactly what are they thinking up there at Warner? Convince us to like the snapper? What's wrong with them?

    Unless they get this figured out soon, Matrix Reloaded will get the same fate.

    I know what color I like my snappers: invisible.

    I saw a huge display of SCOOBY-DOO dvds today and every one had packaging that was "warped" severely. I think the plastic that was used to create the green snapper case must be inferior and allows the package to bend when shrinkwrapped. They looked terrible in that condition...but then so do all non-warped snappers.

    You know what's wrong with WB?
    They pay too much attention to the content of the DVD instead of the cover design!
    I refuse to buy their movies until they're in snapper cases 'cause they look bad on my shelves. [​IMG]

    I don't like snappers either, but I'd take all DVDs in snappers if it meant every studio would put out quality discs as Warner has been doing. If they would start using some nice Amarays it would be the icing on the cake.

    Patrick, [​IMG][​IMG]
    I don't get the big problem with the snappers either.
    Folks, it's just a container. You are actually buying them for the movies right?

    I'm buying the whole package, not just the movie. But, yes, I'd rather have a really nicely done DVD in bad packaging than the other way around.

    Movies I love like Superman, The Matrix, and The Iron Giant could sure use some awesome packaging to match the awesome movies that they are.

    It is because of complaints like these that Studios don't listen to us anymore. Way pointless complaints.

    So Rain and Patrick, can we assume that you own NO HARDBACK books? [​IMG]
    Sure, I'd rather have paperback of LOTR than a hardback of Hannibal (the books mind you), but if given the choice between a nice hardback version of LOTR or the paperback...
    thus the complaints here about Snappers.
    No one is staging a protest or anything, just stating a preference.

    I have both hardbacks and paperback books.
    I usually read the inside of them, too.
    Instead of a new post...I'll extinguish the silliness here:

    Myself, I've never had a problem nor complaint with snapper cases. I don't mind them at all. Besides, DVDs could all be packaged in slipcases. Count your blessings, folks.

    I took very good care of my old VHS collection, and even so, those cardboard cases were looking pretty darn frayed...

    'nuff said.
