Terrible DVD/Blu-ray Cover Art — Page 31

While I get what Criterion was going for here, it’s disappointingly bland. The digipak release had a much better “inner cover (a bit of photoshopping work to add Phoenix and Reeves would help):”

Terrible cover art aside, is the Director’s Cut any better?

The director’s cut has reinserted deleted scenes, one bit of alternate dialogue, and different colour grading for the “story of Ra” flashbacks. I prefer the director’s cut for the most part, but objectively it isn’t any better or worse than the theatrical version. I’d recommend checking it out only if you liked the theatrical version. If you didn’t, then don’t bother.

You Maniacs! You blew it Up!
I got the older CBS/FOX Special Widescreen Edition just so that the cover doesn’t spoil the twist like this late release does.

I’m torn because is a gorgeous shot and super iconic, but yeah, it does spoil the twist.

It’s even more than that it ruins the awesome twist ending, though. It’s also got a horribly ugly gradient map applied & Cornelius looming in the sky is dumb & the whole affair is terribly photoshopy.
But ruining the end is the greatest sin any media can commit. And this cover is going to Hell.
Big time.
