I saw a bunch of those at Wal Mart or Target. Titles like that, Leap Year, Intolerable Cruelty, Sea of Love, and a couple others. They're all pretty awful.

Leap Year, one of the most brightly lit movies I've ever seen, got a dank cover too? Amazing!

Poor Matthew Macfadyen doesn't even get billed.

That's a great buy, because my collection of the series is notably incomlpete.

They manage to butcher a Cheap Trick cover and the Kiss logo on one box.

Is there a more appropriate cover to get the attention of Italian mondo/cannibal genre fans?

Whilst searching Amazon for the pre-order of Chinese silent Goddess, this was the fourth option...
Image
When Hillary Clinton wore that full length white pantsuit on the night she accepted the Democrat Party nomination for President, she was reaching back into time nearly 4,000 years to symbolically declare that she was the Sun Goddess in the Zoroastrian Tradition, exactly the symbolism the Roman Catholic Pope uses nearly every day to declare that he is the Sun God!

She was declaring that she was transcending politics in this present time, because she was spiritually transformed into a goddess!

We explore this white outfit phenomenon from the occult world, and by looking back at other facts in her life and career, we prove that Hillary is a high level Illuminati Witch and that she is poised to complete the 'Co-Presidency' that Bill Clinton promised in 1993.

If 'elected', Hillary is spiritually and politically prepared to surrender American sovereignty in the North American Union, establish tight Gun Control and implement the final changes needed to move this country, and the entire world, into the global government and economy into the Kingdom of Antichrist, a.k.a. New World Order.

Her white outfit tells the full, disastrous story, one that true Christians must understand.
Cool.

Where the fuck is she going to run to, the other side of the stage?

Rules of who were the filmmakers of Shampoo, Bonnie and Clyde, and Bugsy don't apply.

Re the Clinton exposé, James Brown also had an all white suit, had the ear of John Paul II, and HIllary featured his music in her campaign, so I guess he must have been the Sun Godfather.

I can't find a source to cite for this, but "from the maker of" or "from the filmmaker of" are credits that apply to producers, which Beatty was on all of these films. "From the director of" is applied, obviously, to directors, and writers can avail themselves of the "from the creator of" credit.

I'd like to point out that all four of the pullquotes on the cover for a film about LA come from New York papers

I think I've only seen it applied to directors, usually with indie films. Referring to a producer as the filmmaker of x seems misleading at best (unless his first name is Val) and often would be kind of silly, like, "the filmmaker of Touch of Evil... Albert Zugsmith!"

To be fair, they did include an asterisk.

In the case of all three of those films, Beatty was the one who developed and nurtured those projects. Reading the histories of those productions, he had tremendous control over their final form given in large part because of his obsessive nature and need to control everything he made. It may be a sly manipulation of language, but it's not wholly off the mark.

Valid point—consider the joke withdrawn.

I would argue that any consumer who would recognize those film titles would be just as persuaded to buy this disc by the blurb "Warren Beatty made this".

"Hold on - this is from the filmmaker who made my favorite Hal Ashby movie? I gonna check this out!"

The trailer for No Retreat, No Surrender credits Ng See-yuen as "The creator of Jackie Chan!"

I think Lo Wei might have had something to say about that!
