Interstellar Bluray.

Christopher Nolan's 2014 grand scale science-fiction story about time and space, and the things that transcend them.

I'd like to think I'm not very obsessive compulsive, until it comes to something I care very much for. I don't typically buy physical media (I'll just purchase it digitally most of the times) unless it is something I really adore, ie. say a Radiohead album or a Nolan film. Anyway, when I do buy movies, I find myself becoming insanely picky about their physical appearance as I see them as part of a "rare" collection - like I said, I don't buy physical media, so I feel what I do buy should be in great shape, whether it's with our without functionality point.

Anyway, my question: I love in North America and every copy of Interstellar I find is "warped" due to a quick and cheep process of plastic wrapping the bluray's case, which results in, as I said, a warped package... wrinkled and wavy, like it had been set on a hot stove or stuck in the microwave. This is obviously a minor detail to most, I'm aware, but it REALLY gets under my skin, and I'm seeing over seas and in other countries that their blurays weren't sealed in this sort of plastic, but in the other like CD's are with the folds on top and bottom. That way is more expensive because and I find a lot of companies won't use it, but I wish they would.

Is anyone in America finding this in packaging that's not warped? I don't like the steel-case ones or the one Walmart is selling. I work at a music/movie store and I find that sometimes, depending on the shipment and where it came from or how early or late from the initial release of the film it is, a bluray will come factory sealed in one or the other of the plastic wrappings, so it's hard to guess.

This is the one I'm hunting for: the "basic" bluray:

Mine was fine.

This needed a whole thread?

I'm only asking a question amongst fellow fans for help (which, correct me if I'm wrong here, but I thought this was what forums were for).

I've actually found my local Target to be pretty reliable when it comes to non-warped shit.

You know, that's the one place I haven't checked yet, to be honest...

My Wal-Mart copy was in perfect condition

Best Buy is probably the worst offender when it comes to packaging, at least from what I've found. They put that really tight black string contraption on bulkier things (like big special edition boxes and shit). So when they take it off, the box looks like it's been run over by a truck.
