The specs are fantastic and all, but who can tell me what's missing from the Superman 3 cover?

Hint: How about: The STAR OF THE MOVIE???

P.S. DAMN these are awful covers. I know everyone always says this, but they look like they were done on a freeware version of photoshop in less than 4 minutes. Ugh.

Yeah, I think that's four new contenders for most awful DVD covers- its fucking Superman. Could you get any more unimaginative?

I would have loved the S-Shield in different uses on all four- Silver or Crystalline for the first, red crystaline for the second, Green K for the 3rd, and... Well, maybe John Cryer popping through the regular shield with a big smile and a thumbs up for the 4th. I mean really, what the fuck else can you do?

Does the S shielf on Supes II look Photoshopped in?

And not only is Pryor missing, but the cover for the first movie reveals a bald Lex - thus ruining one of the film's best surprises.

I dunno about completely photoshopped in, but certainly polished and shined up- from that angle and the shadows on the chest (which could have also been darkened to further enhance the S-Shield) you would not have seen much of the emblem lest someone cleaned up the natural shading.

Either way these covers look like total crap- unimaginative, uninventive, rushed, and cheap.

Me, I get the Donner cut of S-II, and then I'm done. I cannot, cannot, cannot wait for that version.

Double-fucking yuck-yuck.

And talk about disgracing Richard Pryor. Sheesh.

The good news is the box itself looks really good. (The cases can then hide in shame...)
