God that is UGLY. Who is the mentally deficient exec who thought of that clashing color scheme??
You got this from Thedigitalbits.com.
It's already been posted in the Untouchables thread.
That's why alternate cover art exists!
That's not great, but there have surely been worse covers. Except for the color, I would find it passable. Did you see the cover of "Darby O'Gill and the Little People" on this forum? Now that's bad!
That's what DVDCoverart.com is.....oh nevermind.
I personally don't ahve a problem with the cover art; it's average.
The color scheme may be bad but I believe its the original poster art for the film.
The bullet holes have been added. Yuck!
I agree with those who don't think it's bad. C'mon folks - with all the atrocious covers on the market - hello, Real Genius! - we're running a thread to bitch about one that simply modifies the original art a bit?
Another sign of the lack of fiber in some people's diet.
Hey, listen, there is a big damn difference between Real Genius and The Untouchables, notably the fact that The Untouchables is a hell of a movie! And having some terribly color-schemed borded AND bullet holes is NOT a simple modification of the original.
Jeez, I thought this was a DISCUSSION forum where people can express their opinions about things! And what does fiber have to do with anything, Juan?
Regardless if the cover art is ugly or not, I will still be picking this one up.
Why?? You say. Look at those atrocious colors! I'll buy this because I love the actual movie. That's why I buy most of my dvds btw..
Ha! You guys have got it good.....us Canadians are gonna get bilingual crap added to this. If that (making our covers bilingual) ain't ugly, I don't know what is.
I'll only be getting this if it's a new transfer.
And generally I'm happy if the spine looks cool, which is the only part I see of the artwork 99% of the time.
Well, I was going to buy this disc, but not anymore. I hang all of my DVD cases on my walls, but this is just too ugly to be hung in my home. Paramount has lost my money.
Add another person who thinks that this cover would be pretty acceptable if it weren't for the red border. I've seen far worse.
So is Real Genius, and on the average night, I'd probably choose Real Genius over The Untouchables.
But, that's my personal taste. That's why that shouldn't come into this discussion. All movies deserve good cover art, no matter what people's opinions on the movie itself are.
Not great, yeah the color scheme clashes and the bullet holes are stupid-looking, but I've seen a LOT worse.
I agree that the color scheme might require a tab or two of dramamine but IMO the art, bullet holes aside, is close enough to the original poster art for me to accept...now show me a lousy transfer or crappy sound and then I'll bitch but cover art is the least of my concerns with a DVD release.
Could have been a lot worse.
Yeah, it really doesn't look that bad. It's not like the floating head Open Range, the big head Last Samurai, or gigantic head Secret Window.
Come to think of it, why do studios feel the need to come up with new cover art in the first place? Most times the movie poster, which they already spent oodles on in designing, is perfectly acceptable, and would make a fine cover. Do they really think it necessary to make yet another promotional piece of artwork to distinguish the DVD?
