Well it’s the very first new release blu Ray ozu they’ve ever done, most of their ozu releases were from an era when the artwork was not as special and thoughtful. There was a lot of great artwork here and there, but I feel these past five or six years like every release gets more TLC with regards to its artwork than they used to do

I don't know if I like it more than Good Morning, but it is definitely a beautiful package. I'm glad they've moved past just slapping a montage on Ozu's covers.

Betty Blue is an excellent cover, the others are fine. Can't wait to own Cold War.

I won't hear a single bad word about that cover for The Daytrippers. It's absolutely perfect.

And not done by Adrian Tomine, though it sure looks it!

I like all of these! Two months in a row of good art to balance out the universe from Cluny Brown

The more I look at Now, Voyager, the more the color scheme just blows me away. Upgrading it to great

It’s the subconscious recognition of the Fear Street cover font/layout

It makes me think of I Wanna Hold Your Hand which is just the right mood to get me interested.

Nice covers across the board this month, particularly like how playful All About Eve is, putting Eve out of focus, but in the foreground, is clever since Margot is the star, but Eve gets her name in the title.

No, I got it, but that doesn't stop me from being ignorant in another way.

I love all the covers. Now, Voyager and is great and I love the way they executed the All About Eve cover with Anne Baxter blurred. I haven’t seen The Daytrippers but the cover makes me want to.

The more I look at Now, Voyager, the more Bette Davis looks like Gladys Cooper (who plays her mother in the film). I never before realized the resemblance between them, so kudos to this cover for bringing that to my attention. All great covers this month.

Fists in the Pocket
The Cloud-Capped Star
Polyester

Polyester's Odorama card isn't sealed, FYI, and there's a whiff of something when you open the case.

The DVD edition of Koker is in a single regular-sized Amaray which I find a little interesting.

Wow, quite a long time since they haven't done a 3-discs simple plastic case, IIRC.

Looks like that's all of them. I like all the covers just fine.
