All the martial arts movies that Miramax/Disney released suffered from those crappy covers.




Disney has nothing to do with those. Miramax shoveled the Blu-Ray rights to a bunch of their movies to Mill Creek Echo Bridge Entertainment, whose shitty covers are only the tip of the iceberg to their awfulness.

And I should point out that particular cover is just the cover images from previous releases shoved together.

What's wrong with this cover?

I mean, apart from the GIGANTIC UK rating labels...

That is the same artwork that was used when they first came out on video and later DVD from the Disney/Miramax/Dimension group. I wish these were Mill Creek. Mill Creek's blu's aren't that bad. These blu's as well as From Dusk till Dawn, Hellraiser, and quite a few others are from ECHO BRIDGE. They are absolutley terrible.

I meant Echo Bridge. My bad.

It also makes the movie look like one of their direct-to-video lineup.

This is hollywood we are talking about. Unless it is Will Smith,a movie about gangs,or a comedy with an all black cast they are never going to put a black man front and center on their artwork.

Actually, not true.  You can be front and center if you fight vampires:
Spoiler (click to show/hide)

Or are a supervillain:
Spoiler (click to show/hide)

Technically, vampires are a clan, not a gang, and when you're a supervillain, you have henchmen, not gang members.

They made 4 Blade movies?! I'm shocked.  I always thought the series ended with Blade 2.

They made a Blade 3, which was aweful. I think what he is refering to the fourth one would be the feature length pilot to the short lived TV show.

Not much of one.  It lasted, oh, maybe a handful of episodes?  I'm not even sure if those made it to DVD or not, though I wouldn't be surprised if they did.  Apparently the only show in existence that will never be released on DVD is Upright Citizens Brigade Season 3, since Comedy Central seems to have an even more intense hatred of fans of that show than they had against Best Brains in Season 7 of MST3K.
One Man Band Riffs.  18 riffs, over 600 served, since 2009.

Just my own personal opinion, always hated this cover.
