Looks like the most Rob Zombie movie Rob Zombie never made.

I realize we just discussed Family Enforcer a page ago but nevertheless:

Yeah, I can see Scorsese plotting for 14 years to top that film. Some might say he succeeded, but I like to remain impartial.

I like that it's a picture of Pesci from Casino. Like if a new release of Billy Madison had a screenshot of Uncut Gems on the cover.

My favorite part is the "Four stars!!" without the usual attribution to a critic who rated it, as if the consumer might otherwise assume it's only a three star film, but disclosing four stars will clarify that.

The irony is that most critics' names probably mean nothing to the average customer begin with, so perhaps it doesn't really matter so long as someone said it!

So happy they found the perfect font for "The Mean Streets Just Got Meaner." Mr. Pesci (surely one of the four stars) even stares at it with loving approval.

That is just a small masterpiece. My favorite subtle touch is the gun that has speedlines that would indicate a hasty retreat...or is it just part of the "F"?...either way, brilliant.

Awful horror movie gets the awful cover art it deserves.

Needed the sleeping-bag scene.

Here's a pretty terrible one, for Alain Resnais's Muriel. There is perhaps something subtly absurd about using three cutaways, or whatever they're called, to just show a bunch of people with their backs to anyone who looks at this cover. And they even teal-ified the cover! Go no further! The mad fools with stop at nothing, nothing! Poor Delphine's hair is green!

I don't know why that cover is making me laugh so hard, but it is- maybe because it's depicting a pretty harrowing scene in a cartoonish manner? Looks like a children's book cover

Megan Fox gets top billing over Bruce Willis these days?

If this is anything like other recent Bruce Willis movies, he's only in it for one or two days' worth of work and second billing in exchange for an easy million or two

He's middle billing. Isn't that the best one?

Only if it's elevated just a wee bit above the other two, creating a kind of low sunrise triangle

I love his facial expression. “I was in this? Shit.”
