    Dreamworks has taken block quotes to a whole new garishly large level with this one (I wish they had used the actual "ring" one-sheet):

    But Buena Vista has done a nice job with the Three Colors:

    Couldn't they have found better quotes than that for The Ring? Geesh, looks like their really stretching.

    It seems like subtlety and anything artsitically intriguing (like the Ring poster) goes right out the window when it comes time for a DVD release.

    I still marvel at how we now have the tools to create and print out professional looking custom covers.

    The cover for the upcoming Punch-Drunk Love is fantastic, in contrast to The Ring.
    It maintain the original poster beautifully:

    Gorgeous. Too bad we have to wait for the later SE for this one...

    The Three Colours box art is OK but I still prefer the Artificial Eye artwork.
    As for The Ring, that's horrible. The original poster was much better.

    Ugh, horrible cover art on "The Ring". Luckily I care more about the movie then the cover art. But maybe they went with that, so as to make sure that it was easy to distinguish the original "Ring" and the re-make.
    We'll know for sure, once we see the Japanese version's cover art. I'm betting it's going to look similar to the poster art image that kevin_asai posted. Just an easy way to distingush the two. [​IMG]

    Regarding The Ring cover:

    It would have been great to have the ring cover look exactly like a video cassette with a Ring label on it. That or the theatrical poster, just not this crap. This makes it look like a direct to video movie.

    They should have thrown in the "I liked it too" quote. [​IMG]

    Don't like the quotes?

    The disc is also pretty bare bones. Anamorphic widescreen, DD 5.1 & DTS, "Mystery of The Ring" featurette, and a Ringu trailer.

    I'm confused, which cover art is correct?

    I'm guessing the first one (with the huge quotes on the top and bottom) since the spine has the Dreamworks logo on the bottom and the little picture on the top.

    Sorry, don't like the Three Colours sleeve much - someone's been busy with an airbrush, it seems.
    I did like the very cheap deal I got from Amazon.ca for the set, though - a snip at less than US$30, including P&P to the UK!

    The original one sheet for THE RING is definitely much better, but seeing how much I love the film, I bought a poster of it, so whenever I want to see the original art, I can just look at my wall. Now I'm extra glad I bought it.
    I think the THREE COLORS art looks very good though.
