Nice Volver cover Eric. A Volver cover was my first post as well. Except I accidentally used a still from Abrazos Rotos. Mine was also terrible.

Thanks Alec. Good luck with the full covers (Restrepo is nicely done). You’re braver than I am. Full covers seems like a way-way too much work for me. The text alone… Oy.

The Brown Bunny cover reminds me of the MGM Bergman Box set. Very similar visual destiny.

That Team America cover hurt my eyes! I couldn’t focus properly.

Great work by everyone. I’d like to start doing these again.

@Popeye Love the 2001 cover! I’m not liking the full covers though. Maybe if you gave it interesting special features?

For any John Sayles fans…

Haki, I’ve just been scouring through these pages and your designs are all around fantastic, best in this thread by far!

Thanks Lifeless, but if I added Special Features, i wouldn’t know what to put.

Thanks Allan you are being too kind. I appreciate it.
Thanks Jamie I’m pleased you like it. I’m a big fan of your work on the thread and wish you’d do more.

@Popeye I take back anything I said about full covers. That Godfather is perfect!

Wow that’s really good Colonel, Skinner and others. We got some designers up in this piece.

Colonel, I love your John Sayles covers! Your Lone Star cover is one of my favorites, but all three new ones are worthy additions. The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance cover was also a great one.

Alec, your cover for The Godfather is one of the best you’ve ever done. I love it when someone picks a well known movie and makes a truly unique cover for it!

Great covers all around, guys! This whole page is yet another example of why Criterion needs to be paying attention to this board.

Thank you very much Lifeless and Strummerfan:)
School’s closed today so I’ll probably be getting around to doing some more covers.
