    What are the top five best cases out so far? I would say

    1. Evil Dead, Book of the Dead

    2. Toy Story 1 and 2, The Ultimate Toy Box

    3. Brazil, The Criterion Collection

    4. Akira, Limited Edition Metal Tin

    5. Lord Of The Rings: The Fellowship Of The Ring, Extended
    Edition

    That's my list, what does everyone else think?

    i agree with you on your choices, but there are a couple others worth mentioning. The Royal Tenenbaum's booklike cover has fooled many people who examine my dvd collection from afar. (I place it on its side so it looks like a book) and the Criterion collection of Fear and loathing in las vegas is pretty nice. But PULP FICTION is one of the classiest covers out there. [​IMG]

    I agree on Evil Dead: BotD, Toy Story: UTB, and FOTR: EE. I'd also add The Wicker Man.

    Dan's choices are really good too. I even fool myself on The Royal Tenenbaums from time to time [​IMG]

    For me it would be (in no particular order) Fight Club, Se7en, Punch Drunk Love, The Book of the Dead, and I also like the Second Season cover for the Sopranos.

    IMO, Band of Brothers is by far the coolest packaging TV or film.

    worthy of mentioning:

    Boogie Nights SE
    Magnolia SE
    Tombstone (Vista)
    Almost Famous (untitled)
    Amelie

    I also dig the new Warner SEs (One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, The Right Stuff, ect.)

    eraserhead
    repo man tin
    godfather trilogy
    boogie nights 2 disc
    ---and my winner for best cover---
    fear and loathing: criterion, when you take the outside plastic case off, there are no markings on the case at all except for a signature of the artist, i think it fits the film well.

    How about that Herzog/ Kinski box set?
    or the West Side Story box set either.. that's pure class.
    and I think that Criterion's Night and Fog has one of the most beautiful covers i have seen.
    While Synapse's Blue Sushine front and back rock!

    I'm done. [​IMG]
