Crappy Cover

Jeez...please, just go make another movie and shut up! God, I hate everything : )

I really want to rant about this but I'm restraining myself.

Crappy cover indeed... not what I'd call Cover Art!

What do you think about this one?

LOL. That one has good pictures, but it's too busy...busy...busy.

How about this?

Subtle. Cool.

Do you want to rant about QT's name on the box? It IS annoying how some feel St. Quentin has to bestow his benediction on a movie before it's worthwhile.

I bought a region 3 version awhile back that had an OK cover:

I'm more interested in the movie though. I love that flick. Choi Min-sik is such a great actor, he just burns up the screen.

Yep, that's exactly what I was talkin' about. I'm not a big QT fan to start with, and seeing his name slapped on dvd covers and posters and trailers and commercials is getting really annoying. Well, the Tartan R2 is a much better disc, and has tons of extras. All subbed. And a much nicer cover. Not as good as that first Korean one, though.

That was great! I needed a good laugh at the expense of the Roman Catholic church. ;)

That was actually paid for by the Jesuit Underground!

lizzo, your link (http://photobucket.com/albums/v317/lizzo1/?action=viewĄt=IMG_1.jpg) doesn't work!

How about this cover art?

Hmmm, it still works for me. That's weird. If I cut and paste it, though, it asks for my password.

The cover is nice, without the quote. I wouldn't say that was an essential element of the movie, but I guess they thought death sells? I'll have to think some more about what would be a good quote. Who made that, the same guy who is quoted from the imdb?
