I don’t think the illustration is very good, but it’s not even the worst cover on this page...

EDIT Okay, that’s a funny page break

One more pass of the filter and this, not the CERN collider, would collapse the universe in on itself

Chelsea Field looks like a forensic artist's depiction of a suspect that three different eye witnesses described as looking like "Jodie Foster in Silence of the Lambs", "Lara Croft from the original Tomb Raider game", and "Captain Kathryn Janeway"

If I consider the A/VQ in addition to the artwork of all DVDs in my collection, then this cover goes from bad to pretty much the worst ever.

I do really want to see this movie, but this cover and tagline were apparently engineered under laboratory conditions to dissuade me

When the two of them were on the Simon Mayo / Mark Kermode radio show a few weeks back, Imogen Poots seemingly did her very best to dissuade people from actually seeing the film - she gave away the ending and described the film as a really tough watch!

I feel like maybe that cover needs a snarky “*You’re” comment, but I’m not sure?

I'm pretty sure it means they own it forever like an albatross.

"I don't know...maybe we could take a look at one of the houses that isn't permanently on fire? Oh, they've already been booked up for self isolaters? I suppose that we'll have to take it then. What's the Wi-Fi situation like? Oh, all the plug sockets have melted, because of the fire? Could we, maybe, ask the sellers if they are prepared to provide a discount on the sale price because of that?"

To be fair, The Da Vinci Co-ed’s cover is better than it deserves to be, if the top Letterboxd review is anything to go by:
This does not in fact feature a sexy Mona Lisa. It does however feature three women rubbing whipped cream and chocolate syrup all over each other. 🤢

Next you'll be telling us that this isn't really about a president who's Lincoln on his right half, Trump on his left, and is always squabbling with himself (with the right half getting totally fed up near the beginning of the first scene). So much the worse—it's arguably the worst "film"—more like one of those kinds of alt-right videos that YouTube's algorithm keeps recommending to people, except that this one got a Blu-ray/DVD release—on that list.

"Rev War" sounds like the title for the Asylum's version of Gone in 60 Seconds

It's certainly a choice, but I kinda love this:

You can’t see that unless you’re logged into the Blu-Ray.com forum. Please upload to Imgur

I think that’s *amazing.*

(It’s also just the original poster trimmed down, if a cursory Google is anything to go by.)

Huh, so it is! The hot pink and the cropping somehow makes it feel so much more lurid, though, compared to the original's dusty rose pink... The latter says melodraaaaaaaama; the former says pulp.
