That logo! That typeface! That bright, bright blue! Who gave the fanart people a job at Paramount?

Gee, do you think they went for a Sopranos appearance there?

How about this one, which I only just looked closely at and thought, Jesus Christ, could they airbrush those faces any flatter? Virginia Madsen looks like a 1930's lithograph. Giamatti's teeth look like he's been eating White Out. And starring Thomas Hayden Church as The Toad!

In person it's worse. I can't look at it for long because I start seeing messages from Satan in Haden Church's weirdly elongated yet flattened face.

Well, one of those spy satellites that can read a newspaper's headline from outer space can certainly pick that cover up!

And why does Hackman look like my grandmother in that shot?

Worst logo ever.


What's even creepier is that the studio used the exact same photo of Reynolds' face on the back cover, but his body is in a different "pose." Photoshop creeps me out, as does Reynolds' half-grin.

What really pisses me offf is the awful cover art for 1993's best film, Steve Kloves' Flesh and Bone...



...and the jettisoning of the stunning theatrical poster art:

http://www.impawards.com/1993/flesh_and_bone.html

At least the home-video jacket kept the haunting line "Evil is Patient". Still...

Evil or Very Mad

I can't tell if James Woods' head or Cuba's jacket makes me chuckle more.

"A super-scary ride?" What kind of fuck-ass put me on the DVD cover quote is that?

And why is widescreen two words?

Uh... I kind of like that design. Nice use of the curves and all, and the placement of the "wide screen"/"full screen" looks better than the usual plain bar across the top/bottom.

The "Thrill Ride Sp. Ed." text ruins it by cluttering the whole thing up. Goose is right: poster was much better.

Wow... one would think if the film could afford Morgan Freeman AND Kevin Spacey, it could manage a theatrical release.

From the way Freeman's head looks photoshopped into that picture, I'm guessing he was seldom if ever in the same room as the others.

I think he stole it from Christopher Walken circa 1990.
