Grocery Store Artifact: DVD Packaging

I think it a truism that you can tell how bad a movie is going to be by the number of security seals is on the packaging. If a DVD package is sealed by three or more strips of anti-theft tape then it is likely it sucks with the power of a thousand industrial vacumm cleaners.

I imagine this is to prevent the loss of whatever miniscule dollar the company can receive by deterring shoplifting and copying.

New indicator of bad movie: Security tape.

Old indicator of bad movie: DVD release within less than 8 months of theatrical debut.

  1. I should not have done this, but I bought DVD's for my daughter at my local blue and yellow souless video conglomerate and after unwrapping the initial wrapper, there was another wrapper with a cheaper Meijer pricetag on it. I finally figured it out -- don't but the videos there.
