Adaptation and 25th Hour have no insert?

Got "Adaptation" (in a cheap looking semi-transparent case) and "25th Hour" from Columbiahouse and both have no insert. Is it usual?! At least I thought Columbia Tri-star's release should all have insert...

I didn't think Adaptation was "cheap looking" at all. I kind of like this style - it reminds me a bit of the 3-disc Canadian Pianist that came out last week. Although the transfer isn't so good, the packaging is awesome, and the extras disc and soundtrack make the set worth having.

Back to Adaptation though, I wish more studios would make packaging such as this...

My Adaptation had an insert. It was a memo to someone telling them to find some cases without the clips for an insert because they didn't have anything to clip there.

I liked how it was just wide enough to cover the chapter listing. That way I didn't have to worry about seeing spoilers.
Time. Time. What is time? Swiss manufacture it. French hoard it. Italians squander it. Americans say it is money. Hindus say it does not exist. Do you know what I say? I say time is a crook.

I love that new DVD smell!

The Adaptation insert is frigging brilliant. Perfectly ties in with the movie.

Seems to be happening more often....and as far as the Adaptation DVD case... loved it! Clear cases are great.

Yep, I love them too. It would solve the no insert/chapter listing issue and looks cool as well (especially if they decide to use artwork for the disc side as well.

My 25th Hour has an insert.

Both my 25th Hour and The Recruit are lacking inserts.

The thread on inserts was already mentioned above and we also have the Adaptation case discussion here, which well covers the insert.
I want you to hit me as hard as you can.
