I Just Bought … (Non-SW Shopping Diary)

I agree, but maybe they’re intentionally going for a 1970s graphic look ? :nauseated_face: Personally I like to see the original poster artwork … after all it was designed specifically to attract the thrill seeking punter.

They don’t even put the original poster on the reverse sadly, just whatever the hell this is supposed to be:


Its especially annoying because they had the actual poster on their older DVD release which looked fine:

It seems to be a running theme with shameless, like what is going on with their release of Torso? It looks like someone added 20 layers of Instagram filters to it.

I actually like this cover to be honest, it gives a good hint to the ugliness/despicable, and depraved nature of Tomas Milian’s character and the lengths Henry Silva’s Commissario will go to bring him to justice. without showing too much. It was also the cover of the booklet in the original NoShame release of the film, which I still in a bag in storage.

I got the 88 Films edition of The Violent Professionals myself, but the WE cover is pretty cool I gotta admit.
