I guess it's technically a poster? Not sure the release situation for this one. But:

Cumberbatch’s face looks like an XBOX game come to life.

The floating heads cliché has got to go.

I mean, very glad that KL is releasing this, but they swapped out a perfectly fine poster for this vaporwave collage monstrosity?
Just wanna jump in to this cover’s defense. I actually looooove it, particularly as an inversion of Criterion’s now iconic all type design. This was even done by CC regular Sam Smith (House, Something Wild). Wish they were doing more original pieces like this.

Technically not awful, but ...
Apparently this’ll grace Image’s forthcoming steelbook BD:

I guess it’s good to know that Arrow aren’t the only ones who have no idea what Winona Ryder looks like.

Haha, looks more like a young Rosie O’Donnell.

Olive covers are typically terrible, but that's easily one of their best.

Here's one for the thread (I tried to make it smaller but couldn't figure out how to resize, as selecting 'small' instead of 'normal' did nothing. I also tried changing the size from '85' to '55' but that didn't do anything either):

It's my turn to say that's a perfectly decent cover and not "one for the thread".

This is not a bad cover, like at all. It's very purposefully done in the pop cartoon style of the era in which it was made

To each their own. I say it is an eyesore, which means the pop cartoon style of the era was probably an eyesore. It looks like a garish cover for a cheap children's coloring book.

That Bucket of Blood cover is also very much in keeping with the style of the original poster (needs to be seen in full res to appreciate it).

Pull quotes from Moby AND FHM? Could this be any more early 00s?

Love the use of both an ampersand AND ‘n’ in place of “and” in the FHM quote

That's roughly the stylization used in the Happy Mondays album title that informed the quote

I had a really good joke response ready to post, thanks for ruining it with an accurate explanatory contribution
