I got no love for DVDs in cardboard packaging. Fuck you, New Line Home Video. Great, you saved 3 cents and now I have a DVD that's easily banged up, and if I break the case, have no way to buy a replacement like I can with the good plastic cases with removable art slips.|
Amen! to that..I thought I was the only person who hated those...cases should be standard, imho.
(It also messes up the nice order of things on my shelf, I have to seperate the nice boxed ones from the crappy cardboard ones).

There is a VERY easy solution to this.. you just have to have a very low moral standing.
Wear big baggy pants with big pockets. Go to Blockbuster. When no one is around, swap your case for the one on the shelf, put new case in pocket. Leave.
I wouldn't technically call it "theft" because there's no visible sign of anything missing. And you just got a replacement case for the price of gas to drive to Blockbuster.
But cardboard ones still look/feel cheap.
I hear that Buddy.
New Line, does it all the time. Warner and Universal do on some stuff. jerks. On The other side, I have yet to see a Paramount crappy box. Or Fox for that matter.
