Earlier this week I was walking into one of the very few and rare music/movie shops left in my town and I suddenly came over one of my all time favorites, Groundhog Day (1993) and they had three different copies in the store. 1 DVD and two Blu-rays (I do have 4-5 version of the film in my collection, but as a huge movie lover/collector, I often end up double-dipping or even tripple-dipping whenever I find a new version of a favorite, or if it comes packing with some brand new features). Anyway, I already knew that the artwork on the 15th anniversary edition some time ago were shockingly bad, but now an even newer Blu-ray edition had been released, which looked like it was done on photoshop within 2 or 3 minutes. I know, the original movie poster of Groundhog Day was certainly no masterpiece, but can't they afford hiring someone who at least show a little effort when doing these absolute horrible updated DVD/Blu-ray artworks: Look at this monstrosity. I know that many of us Groundhog fans hoped to see Bill Murray doing some new feauteres like maybe a couple of interviews but nothing, and who knows, maybe he did fire up some of the producers, and in return someone decided to "hit back" with this horror show, celebrating the film in 2008. His face looks like it is about to melt and are truly the stuff of nightmares. The newer one is not exactly much better, with using the original artwork but in the end gives it a very dull and lifeless approach. I know that most people probably don't give a damn, but as a lifelong fan of movie posters/VHS covers, it really is as shame to see how poorly most of the classic films are being treated when they are being re-released on DVD/Blu-ray. What are your picks for "favorite" great movies with horrible artwork?
