Default Do You Miss Movie Booklets?

I don't recall having purchased a Blu Ray that includes a booklet insert with the exception of a Criterion title and Close Encounters of the Third Kind. In the past I think most of the DVD titles I purchased included some sort of booklet. I must admit that they generally were very weak, but do you miss them not being included with BDs?

Not really, but I do wish there was always artwork printed on the inside of the cover art.

I agree, I do look forward to that when I buy a Sony title. I also look forward to the Blu Ray disk Icon Art that shows up on my PS3 under the video menu... I enjoy the small things I guess

Yes, they would add a little extra support to eco-cases if they still included them.

I see where Lionsgate and Fox are still pumping these poor excuses for cases out. I will just keep swapping them for real cases I suppose.

Off of the top of my head there is only 3 blu-rays in my collection that come with booklets, which are Casino Royale Collectors Edition, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, and The Gonnies. I'm not interested in them personally, but I can see how others might like more releases to come with them.
Setup:
Panasonic th-p65vt60a tv, Sony str-da5300es avr/pre-amp, Emotiva xpa-2 & xpa-5 amps, Dali Concept: 10 (fronts) 2 (rears x4) & centre speakers, 2x SVS pb13-ultra subwoofers, Oppo bdp-105 Blu-ray player/DAC (multi-region), Onkyo c-s5vl sacd player, Panasonic dmr-bwt835 1tb hdd/Blu-ray recorder, Xbox One s & 360 s, Sony PS4 Pro & PS3 60gb, Cyron lighting & htw1000 controller, Samsung s2 1tb hdd, SurgeX sx1210rli surge protector/power conditioner x3, Logitech Harmony ultimate remote + hub

if it were up to me all my blu's and dvd would come in digi book form. I'm from a time when, you'd go to the movies and they'd give you a movie program. I miss that so much. I have the Abyss, Towering inferno,Rocky, Jaws2 and Flash Gordon(i haven't taken care of that program the way i should've) I always look for the booklets but they don't make them like they use to. Love movie memorabilia...so give me the booklets, Digi books(don't know why a TRUE movie fan would hate them) and movie programs

I like them. The booklets are one of the reasons I like Criterion so much. Digibooks are also cool, but a lot of them only have pictures and not any essays and such like CC's booklets.

I am a big fan of anything that can add to the presentation of a movie.

I know that a lot of people will argue that they don't care about inner artwork, disc art, booklets, bonus features, etc., but I really feel that in an age where people can easily download pirated movies, stream them from netflix, or pay for a digital version, the studios really need to give extra reason to actually pay for a physical package. If I love a movie, I want it's packaging to celebrate it.

No. I don't miss them.

I'm a true movie fan. I'm not impressed by excess packaging. I don't like cardboard digibooks or pieces of paper stuffed with filler that I can read on the internet.

Just put a good movie in a solid, protective plastic case. That's all I want.

I was surprised to see a booklet in my copy of Chinatown most recently. Its only maybe 5 pages, but it brought back some nostalgia of the smell and feel of CD booklets.

I agree with HD Goofnut, I miss inside cover art more than booklets, some blu-rays still have them. I miss the pre-combo pack days when the back art wasn't capitalizing on how it was a combo back and more so being unique, but that's just me

Yes. Sometimes they would include some interesting trivia about the movie, whether it was about the cast, the making of, etc.

Yes. I miss scene lists. Many Blu-rays don't have the title of the scene, just numbers and pictures. I want a scene list. I always refer back to the insert in the LotR Extended Sets.

I miss them.
The DVD for The Monster Squad, while not a booklet was i nice letter written by the Director.
Magical Shopping Arcade and Red Dwarf had some of the absolute BEST insert booklets i've ever seen.

When companies started stopping including them in DVD cases I felt ripped off... I still do now, with Blu-Ray's
Looking to purchase the following:
- Game of Thrones: Season 1: HBO Shop Bonus Disk
- Ghost in the Shell: Target Bonus Disk
- 4k/UHD - Spider-Man 1, TMNT: OotS, Dracula Untold, Captain Underpants, Split, Rough Night
