Passion DVD Art

Thanks to Patrick Mirza and Davis DVD:

Sad thing is, it's so plain looking.

I would've expected Ebert & Roeper's "Two thumbs WAY Up" on there.

It'll probably change in time, though.

So was I. But like I said, I would've thought that they would capitalize on Ebert & Roeper's review.

Well I hope that at least this movie would not be filled with critics' quotes.

DVD art when first released always seems to change, so I would expect something else added, or maybe something different all together.

You PREFER them to litter the cover with critic's quotes on Jesus' face?

I think it looks nice.

Looks great! I wouldn't want it any other way. I sure hope they do this DVD justice and use a good transfer and DTS track. Hopefully it will be a 2-disc SE loaded with documentaries, etc.

Is this even the official DVD cover??

I just hope that no subtitles are censored (like they were in the theatrical release)

Probably not. Far too many websites today, in order to get a swell of site visitors, head to photoshop and just put the theatrical poster on a DVD Cover template, adding whatever label a studio might have (a Warner "widescreen edition" at the top, for instance). Result - a huge number of people visit teh site, who the siterunners hope will stick around a bit. I'm not accusing Davis of doing this... they may have been given a photoshop job under the pretense it was real...

I mean, look at it. There's not even a "DVD Video" logo...

I don't think the film needs any critic's comments on the cover to sell DVDs.

This DVD, in total honesty, will end up probably being the best selling DVD of all time. Moreso than Star Wars will be when it comes out. Or at least equal.

I just hope Mel gives us the commentary and other features on this disc and not wait for a special edition.

Are you referring to the line that Gibson decided to cut because it was one of the specific things that the Catholic Church describes as being unneccessary and anti-semitic, or was something else cut?

'Cause it's not censorship when it's the director does it willingly. It's only censorship when it's not a choice (even then, I believe that, technically, it has to be the government doing it for it to be censorship).

I just love it when people throw the word "censorship" around when they have absolutely no clue on what the word means.

I swore that I would never post here again, but the arrogance of certain members still never fails to amaze me. People like DonnachaOne are truly what makes running a DVD website suck some days...

For your information, the cover art came straight from 20th Century Fox.

I really wish one of my readers hadn't linked me to this post.

What an awful way to wake up and start the day.

It's that and I think some other subs

He bowed down to "higher" pressure. So it's censorship.

Mr. Mirza, I like your site. I did not accuse you of deliberately running any false covers.

Why cry censorship over something you only THINK happened?

Did he? Do you know Mel Gibson that well, that you know exactly why he makes certain decisions?

I know there's at LEAST one part that was censored. Not certain if there's more but there probably is.

It's a known fact that he caved in after a lot of pressure (though he did not cave in all the way)

I'd like some documentation on this.

By that reasoning, you would claim the fact that he added subtitles as "censorship" because he "caved in" and subtitled the movie when he didn't want to. The government did come in and tell Mel to remove the line from the movie, there was no studio involved in the production of it. People need to realize that censorhip really only applies to television. Because 99.9% of censhorship cries about movies on this board are false.

Looks fine to me. Hope it keeps it's clean, quote-free cover.
