Do intentionally cheesy spoof covers for intentionally cheesy spoof movies (like Hot Shots!) count as bad?

He even has two pairs of sunglasses in the first photo!

I think that fits the spirit of the film and is probably intentional (or maybe even in the original photo).
It’s not funny, but neither was the movie.

Movies generally considered "bad" that you like.
Time

I can’t believe that License to Kill is “generally considered bad”, it’s in my top3 Bond films if not even in the first place. I mean, you can have feel it’s not your cup of tea but I can’t see how it actually is bad. It has good actors, pretty locations, a cool villain, great action, nice 80’s set pieces… Some feel that From Russia with Love is their favorite Bond films and I don’t like it at all but I still don’t consider it as bad. Die Another Day on another hand, now that is bad and belongs in this thread if someone would like it.

Those are new covers wolrdwide. They even made steelbook for the first Superman. Also they renewed Batman covers, those are awful too.

What the heck is this?

It’s a micky-take from the lads working on ROTJ - they put in a dragon from the 1981 film Dragonslayer and took a couple of photos for laughs, I think…

It’s THE dragon from Dragonslayer, Vermithrax Pejorative !

And yes, it’s a fun picture from the ILM guys.

Wow, it’s rare for me to see completely new photos from SW, I had no idea about this.

Eh, it still sucks.

Pretty much all poster art for wide releases look terrible nowadays, the only movie released this year that caught my attention based on poster art alone was Baby Driver.

Teaser/advance posters for Wonder Woman were widely appreciated around the world (theatrical was very bland), but whatever. I’m happy that they are actually going to use 3 of the teaser posters for different BD releases here (regular, steelbook and 3D). Too bad I’m already thinking about moving into 4K and that cover wasn’t great with all the cast in it.

This following one isn’t actually completely terrible but a good example of taking the same piece of artwork and then f**king it all up. First the awesome US cover (which hues closely to the poster feel)…

…and the ruined UK cover…

I may have to get the more expensive film book edition, or import the US BR just to not have that on my shelf LOL.

*loudly sings God Bless the USA*

And here I was thinking the US Best Buy steelbook was bad.

Wow, can’t beleive we actually “won” with WW:

This was the best poster for the movie IMO and it’s even hanging on my wall.
Sorry, not the “best cover art” thread…

My ranking:
★★★★★

  1. The Empire Strikes Back DESPECIALIZED
  2. Star Wars DESPECIALIZED
  3. Return of the Jedi DESPECIALIZED

So you like despecialized movies more than the actual originals? Huh.

I certainly like watching them over any official version. The picture and sound quality is miles ahead of the official product and the SE changes have been erased to the point that I can’t tell they were ever there.

I’m not talking about versions or what is out there but what the movies actually are. It’s like saying my favorite movies are The Terminator Special Edition DVD and Terminator 2 Skynet Edition. When ranking films it’s odd to see them specifically categorized as despecialized versions and not actually the movies that were actually made.

Man, what does someone have to do to get banned around here? You would think calling a moderator a hypocrite and an asshole, and the following up with childish mocking of his love of Rogue One, might do the trick…

I forgot to mention “doing nothing but shitting all over the forum every time he visits.”

When Did The Star Wars Prequels Become Cool?

Star Wars Show on YouTube tries to make them cool in pretty much every episode. Feels so weird but that show is so obnoxious anyways. At least some interviews are kind of interesting.

Kind of a silly lawsuit, but imagine if somebody sued over the SE’s being passed off as the originals? 😉

😃 Good luck the the person who ordered the 007 boxset with ‘all’ the James Bond films in - companies should be more careful with the words described to sell their product to the public.

They do actually have the list of films in the box that are included… The whole lawsuit is completely just being stupid.

Yet, it clearly states that:-

'Product Description

Collectible box set featuring all 22 James Bond films on Blu-ray disc in one complete offering for the first time.

Collection includes all 22 James Bond feature films from Dr. No to Quantum of Solace and more than 130 hours of bonus features including never-before-seen content from the Bond archives, and more.’

So ‘all’ means not ‘all’ - because there is a long list of films and bonus content afterwards? - which after seeing ‘all’ you probably wouldn’t read through that list as you’re already safe in the knowledge that you’re going to receive all the James Bond films in this boxset…

 

I think the lawsuit is quite petty - though if it results in companies have to be more accurate and careful in the way they word/sell their products then the better it is for us, the consumer…

That post is being as stupid as the person suing and nothing else. 22 isn’t 24. I cannot believe anyone is using any time for this, including the person suing.

A much bigger problem is the case for SW as nowhere is it being labeled as being the SE nor have the end credits been updated since 1997.
