The Semi Official Blu-Ray Thread
God....I love blu ray....but the covers of most blu rays are SHIT. 4Ks are like the opposite. They almost always look really nice.

But....a good cover doth not a good movie make. It's still the same film underneath. And since I don't own that one, I'll probably end up with that one too. I wanna see it again. I'm kinda amped for the new one. I guess because I didn't know it existed. Just...one day I saw a preview and thought it looked fun..

I'm a stickler for cover art. If I love the movie I'm not gonna bypass it because of the horrible cover (see Lionsgate's NEAR DARK blu) but it bugs me when studios screw around with the art. Thankfully the previous SHAFT blu with the original art is still out there for a reasonable price.

A lot of the boutique companies do their own new cover art but at least they usually offer up the original versions on the flip. Or in the case of Criterion they actually put effort into their covers.

Blu art for cool movies doesn't get much worse than this.

At least Shout usually does double-sided covers with the original art on the other side. Bonus points for them!

I always go with the original art. The new artwork is always too busy and try-hard.

Shout /Scream always tend to go way too busy with their Collector's Edition covers. Like this:

Don't need every character represented. But again, the great original art is on the reverse. Too bad you can't reverse a slipcover though.

Fuck a slipcover..
