    Does anyone know when/if Warner will be moving away from those junk cardboard cases and moving to a keepcase format?

    I mean come on, people buy dvd's to collect and the cases Warner uses are not consumer friendly in the least little bit. Do they even care that what they are putting out is junk? I know I for one will not buy a Warner title unless I have to (Perfect Storm, Twister, Green Mile). The rest of the industry goes one way, and Warner goes the other...Are they that powerful that they can move away from the norm?

    I believe that they are tied by a contract & part ownership to the company that produces the snappers. I simply replace the snappers with keepcases & either download or design my own cover art inserts.

    Randy,

    Welcome to the forum.
    This topic has been discussed, in my personal opinion ad nauseam, in many, many other threads. Some people like the snappers (that's how these boxes are called).

    Will you, please, perform a search before you think you post a new opinion/question/announcement?
    Thanks, it will help us to keep the forum more efficient.

    Cees

    Warner owns Ivy Hill the company that makes snappers, so don't count on a change.

    Ivy Hill needs to get into a new line of product, methinks.

    Even if WB stopped using snappers THIS MONTH, there's still tons of DVD's still in snappers already on shelfs.

    I've said this before, but don't ever claim to be a movie fan if you refuse to buy a movie because of the packaging.

    yeah WB needs to stop using the Sappners sometime soon...I very happy that New Line at last has stopped using them I hope....I also hope that the cases on Gresse and Panic Room are about to become the norm at all cause in my mind there far worse than the snappers are!
