They changed the cover for THE MAKIOKA SISTERS as well. If I recall correctly, that was also in response to the negative reactions.
What was wrong with that?

Viridiana has the C now on its packaging. Still has the original DVD menu though.

Do anyone use the booklet-posters as posters? I can't bring myself to do it, with the essays on the back and the possibility of damaging them. But I'd love to use some of them despite it.

Unfold the poster, take a picture with your phone and print it out-laminated-at fed ex. Couple bucks, small wall poster you can futz with how you like; all without damaging the original. I’ve not done that, but my wife just did it for a webcomic to go in our laundry area. :-p

Boosmahn reporting that post for "Why would you do this to me" is one of my personal favorite things ever to happen here

I think the January Becker covers are obvious and lazy. Discuss.
I Agree.

Next!
Good point

Agree with everyone on Haxan, and I really like that Matewan cover as well

The Gast and Sternberg covers are incredibly lazy with bad typography. Horrible spacing on the Sternberg and poor typeface choices on both.

Sternberg's been that way for nine years already, though.

Excellent covers and great to see the Sternberg set on blu, but still no spine 1000. The wait continues

I like the covers. The Haxan art work is excellent.
