My Memento dvd is trapped!

I can't pull it out of its case. I'm not sure what happened, but I do know that the blue paperclip is nowhere to be seen. If anyone else had this problem, what did you do?

try to pull it out from each side...back and forth until it comes out... It's also a bit hard for me, but eventually it comes out...

Happened to me too. Once I got it out, I promptly put the discs in a couple spare regular DVD cases I had so I never have to worry about that again.

You really need to have a kind of system if you're going to make it work.

I'd tell you, but you probably wouldn't remember why you wanted to know.

The DVD deserves to get out of the case; it doesn't make any difference if I remember it or not.

And that's all I have to say about that.

Do what I just said and it should slide out easily (assuming that is the problem).

Finally, try pushing it out with your fingers - do it gently as not to rip anything.

Then look in to see if something is stuck.

First, open the left side of the paper case. Be careful. You don't want to tear the paper.

Sometimes the paper gets stuck together inside the case. To get it free do the following:

As long as we're making dumb Memento jokes, here goes.

Oh man, I'm going to superglue RoQuEr's Memento DVD so he can't get it out. It's going to be so superfunny when he finds out. Oh man!

I can't remember if I've mentioned this here already, but in case I haven't, there's a special edition, 2-disc DVD of "Memento" coming out May 21, 2002. Here's a photo from Amazon.com:



















Sorry. Had to get in a Memento joke.

Joe Pantoliano and Carrie-Anne Moss were awesome in The Matrix! Did anyone else hear about some indie movie they're doing?

Believe it or not, you haven't even gotten to the hard part (which is figuring out how to play the actual movie).

I'd have some witty Memento joke, but I'm laughing too hard. By far the funniest movie related thread I've seen in a long time.
