I. Just. Wanna. Watch. The movie...!

I've just spent the better part of 10 minutes trying to get into the DVD case for Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl. All three non-hinged sides of the case had those godforsaken SECURITY DEVICE ENCLOSED stickers, and all resisted my best efforts at removal for a good while.

So here's my plea to DVD manufacturers:

You sell movies. You are not purveyors of a commodity the approximate value of the US GDP enclosed in a black plastic hinged case.

Therefore, your overzealous security-device notices are unwarranted, to say nothing of irritating.

So knock it off!

Well now. That was lame, huh?
