Thank you. As an old, old man the same thing happens to me. Trust me, it only gets worse. And, Kids, it makes no difference how good or bad the movie is. Sometimes I'll blink out for just a minute or two and I have to find where I left off. Generally, if I'm going to seriously watch a film I have to start much earlier in the evening than I used to, and save the extra stuff for later on, since it won't matter if I nod off.

As a kid, I never understood how my late father could fall asleep about 20 minutes into all these exciting movies we were watching. What was wrong with him? Now I get it.

I do that too. The problem for me is that I find myself reluctant to open them fearing they may be worth a fortune as out-of-print titles if left as brand new.

I'm sure there are many Disney VHS titles that are still sitting in closets across America for that very same reason.

I have a intricate process that involves the alignment of the stars, intensive counseling from my guru, my belief that the holocaust never happened and how much alcohol I have consumed.

I won't unwrap some of mine for a few days in hopes of finding it cheaper elsewhere, but I won't leave it unwrapped beyond those few days, if there's anything wrong with the contents/disc inside the case, I want to be able to return it for an exchange. Plus, I just get itchy fingers...

That's certainly part of it, and I have an unwrapped "Little Mermaid" VHS and a few other things that I should probably have sold, as well as a buttload of unwrapped DVDS.

I've only gotten burned once, so far. My 2-disc copy (with sleeve) of "Iron Man2" (maybe that was the "burn" right there) only had the feature disc. However, by the time I got around to watching it, the 2 hours of extras on the second disc had been posted to YouTube. Of course, I do watch message boards and other sources for glitches other people have found, and replacement situations, as happens with every third Shout! bluray.
