Nice work on The Day After cover. Here’s a quick one for the challenge.
Somebody has to do one for the English made-for-TV nuclear holocaust film THREADS! I saw the cover that was made for THE DAY AFTER and now I’m really interested in seeing what someone would do for that.
Had a different idea for my Threads cover… but gonna have to take some screenshots first.
Another for the challenge. BTW, I remember watching Born Innocent when it first aired… that cover knocks it out of the ballpark, Lifeless!
Is it cheating to do a ‘Fanny and Alexander’ or ‘Scenes from a Marriage’ cover? They were, after all, both made for TV.
No—go right ahead. And series or miniseries are just as good, too. Hell, even if it was cheating, it’s not like the Fake Cover police would descend on your home in black helicopters…
Or would they?
Excellent KES cover…that movie needs a Criterion release REAL BAD!
Another version of IT.
^ Love it.
I concur. And thirty Helens agree.
Forgot to give “xlostfaith” at DeviantArt credit for the IT photo.
I have no computer skills, so could not even begin to put together the artwork myself, but the collective work so far has been amazing. So, if anyone is in the mood to take requests, I’m wondering what some of my late seventies guilty pleasures would look like as Criterions.
Orca, King Kong (‘76), Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Heart’s Club Band, Foul Play, Americathon, Hooper, Love at First Bite, Phantasm, The Frisco Kid, Meteor, Saturn 13, Hero at Large, Flash Gordon (‘80), The Jazz Singer (’80), The Gong Show Movie, Race for Your Life Charlie Brown, The Devil and Max Devlin, The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas, any Don Knotts/Tim Conway team-up.
god damn do I ever love Rio Bravo.
here’s one i cooked up real quick. it’s amazing how few photos i could find from this miniseries, so i used this photo i found from what appears to be an abandoned building on the westside of baltimore, not sure what block though.
woops. just realized that ed burns helped write the book but did not in fact help create the series; the co-creator was actually david mills.
This thread is so much fun, I check in here every day. There’s so much talent – even though I know I don’t come close, I felt compelled to enter this week’s contest….
I’ve just spent a couple of hours working on this – it’s amazing how addictive it is! I’d forgotten I had an old copy of Photoshop Elements, so I was able to do some more tweaking this time. Anyway, here it is – I’ll probably work on it more tomorrow – i’d like to fix the typeface and the Criterion label some – but I couldn’t resist this week’s challenge because I love this crazy series!
I really like the Peter and the Wolf and Sunday Bloody Sunday.
I doubt I can really contribute. Some of these are amazing!
However, I would love to see Strangers on a Train as part of the Criterion collection.
