DVD Shrine has pictures of the new Memento - Limited Edition DVD set. Includes packaging pictures and menu screen shots. I have seen nothing like this and its very cool looking. This is a must buy for me.
The link is http://www.dvdshrine.com

Damn. I got aggrivated from just looking at the menu shots, can't say I'm looking forward to playing with the menus myself...

I have reservations, but it looks cool. I couldn't help but notice in one of the pictures that once again there is an ugly black anti-theft tag stuck to the inside of the clear disc holder.

ENOUGH ALREADY with all these B.S. "games" to unlock disc content.

MAKE THE CONTENT EASILY ACCESSIBLE!!! THIS IS A MOVIE, NOT A FRIGGING VIDEO GAME!

Yeah, heaven forbid somebody try to make the DVD extras experience fun and different!

I kinda like interactive stuff...

But they should put a "plain vanilla" option so that if you don't want to go through the interactivity you can just get a basic menu of options.

Received my copy today. The packaging and design are very nice. I do have one question. Should I endeavor to remove the back cover attachment which describes the features or should I leave it? I want to remove it but it appears to be held by some other type of glue beyond that rubbery cement-stuff. I think it might ruin the back if I pull it off. Anyone had any luck yet?

Prentice,

I removed mine with no problems. I just went slow, and it came off without any fuss.

I haven't watched the set, but I don't think I'm so crazy about the menus so far.

The back of mine came off no problem. Getting the disks out was another story. I had to pull very hard and bent the cardboard a bit on the spine trying to get them out. They could've made the outside sleeve a cm or so bigger! :frowning:

By the way, this has nothing to do with the packaging, but people have been wondering if the chronological cut of the film would be a hidden feature on disc 2. I guess a very easy way to figure this out would be for someone with a DVD-ROM drive to put the disc in the drive and check it (if you know a little about how a DVD is organized you'll easily be able to spot if there's a full-length movie on there). I would do it myself, but my DVD-ROM drive is more or less defective.

The chronological cut of the film is on disc two.
EASY WAY (for slackers):
- Title 7 = End Credits Going Backwards
- Title 3 = The Movie
- Title 8 = Opening Credits Going Backwards
HARD WAY (for people who like hard, confusing menus):
- On the main menu, press enter on the clock icon.
- Find the quiz with the four pictures of a woman putting on a tire.
- Put the four pictures in backwards order (unlike how the quiz tells you to put them in chronological order) and wa la!
