Hate of the day: DVDs that poop out on me HALFWAY THROUGH THE MOVIE. I mean, it would be one thing if they died within the first five minutes, or wouldn't play at all, especially if the movie isn't that good. But it's unforgivable to suddenly stop playing fifteen minutes from the end of a Hitchcock classic. Especially one that (I'm ashamed to confess) I haven't seen. Now my computer doesn't want to admit it could ever read the DVD at all.

So uh, how does it end? Does Mr. Thorwald hack Jimmy Stewart to death or what?

This is driving me nuts.

How many other movies feature a Photographer as the star of the show? This is a good movie; apply hammer to side of computer and reinsert.

Was it a rental DVD covered in scratches and thumbprints? I'm getting really good at cleaning the suckers. One drop of liquid hand soap, lots of warm water, gently scrub the grease away with your thumbs. Shake off the water, dry with a lens cloth. I've yet to rent a DVD that can't be played with a bit of cleanup.
