Ranking the Star Wars films
Time

I for one am a Star Wars fan who doesn’t give a shit about the so called “standards.” Last time I checked, there is absolutely no laws, or regulations on being a Star Wars fan. We are not bound to one way of looking at the films. Heresy my ass.

[Best] 1) Return Of The Jedi 10/10 (That’s right. You read correctly)
2) The Empire Strikes Back 10/10
3) Star Wars (aka A New Hope) 10/10
4) The Force Awakens & Rogue One (a tie) 9/10
5) Revenge Of The Sith 7/10
6) The Phantom Menace 6.5/10
[Worst] 7) Attack Of The Clones 5/10

In, my opinion, the Original Trilogy (specially the Theatrical Cuts) is perfect across the board. All three are amazing. Return Of The Jedi is #1 for me. There is absolutely NOTHING wrong with The Empire Strikes Back, and Star Wars (ANH)!! Each one gets even better than the last, that’s all. It’s a “tryptic” masterpiece.

Nice work, and I especially enjoy the orange colors of “Empire” I would possibly try and make the “despecialized” type easier to read. It bleeds into the background a bit making it a tad difficult to see clearly. Top notch stuff!

cheers.

I might just get rid of the text “Despecialized Edition” on each cover. It kinda takes away from the front cover rather than add. Putting something behind the text to make it pop out more would disrupt the design, not to mention the fact that a drop shadow adds nothing, either. It worked for the titles, but the extra text would probably make the front cover look more crowded.

Update on my current cover project: I made a huge overhaul. I increased the size of the art to fill in the whole front cover. I also added more color to fit the color scheme for each movie. I also gave the titles an off-white color. They’re still not ready, yet, which is why I shrunk the size of the pictures below. There are still areas I need to fix, especially when it comes to centering everything properly:

I might make these double-sided.

^ Edit: I will NOT be making a slipcase. There was no slipcase when I had the Unaltered Trilogy on VHS, and the same will go to these covers.

But wasn’t the VHS packaging essentially just a slipcase?

What I actually meant was something like a box set. One CBS/FOX release had an available box set (At least I think this was CBS/FOX):

I had these a long time ago, which didn’t come in a box set:

Here’s a small tease of what I’m currently working on (it’s not ready yet):

As you can see, I’m giving my covers a throwback look. They are inspired by the old CBS/FOX VHS tapes I had during my early childhood. I don’t want them to be exact copies. I used the color scheme as a reference, and lowered the saturation of the pictures. I also made an off-white color. This makes the covers look older, as if they have aged and faded over time.
