This is a pretty good movie, but when I saw "FORGET MATRIX" written on its cover, I not only laugh, but said "Ridiculous..." too.

What a huge arrogant pretension! Who would in healthy conditions forget the so brilliant masterpiece Matrix. Dozens of times I´d ignore this movie at the Movie Rental shelves.

So, when wasn´t nothing more to watch, I´ve decide to rent this what I thought would be a complete waste of time. WRONG! This is a great movie. Not so brilliant, in acting nor CG effects, but pretty poetic, thrilling and philosophic one.

Ok. You might think, I don´t like Liam Neeson. "AU CONTRAIRE!" I really do love his jobs! All of them!

This was the only reason to me rent this one. But you might agree with me that it looks tottally cliché. Leather black jacket, pistol. Badass face...

If... just IF wasn´t for the Liam Neeson INCREDIBLE acting, maybe I would ignore this movie several times or simply forget it.

Oh! By the way I forgot to say: This movie has a brilliant thrilling script and lot of rithm. Believe me, it´s a awesome movie, even if you don´t like Liam Neesom.

Ok. I´watch this one at the TV. So I didn´t saw it´s cover before watching the movie. BUT, when I finally saw the drawn poster, with a red car in a Highway, I didn´t realise that would be the same movie.

It´s not any kind of animation movie for kids... Here in Brazil this movie is called "Curtindo a Vida Adoidado" or something like "Enjoying Life Like Crazy". :)

What a Incredible japanese animation!!
I have no words to describe this what I consider the most brilliant drama war-related movies EVER.

Not only among the animation movies, but among any other movie in cinema´s history. Simply the most heartbraker movie I´ve ever seen.

The ilustrated cover, as I first saw, made me to think that the entire movie was a poor drawn and obviously for kids. I couldn´t be WRONGER. This is a masterpiece.

Hehehe I do confess... I just watch this because of Marylin´s presence on the cover. The two guys over there just look as goofs.

First things first. This is a Black and White movie, from the 50´s/60´s - obviously. When the comedy movies, tradicionally was too ingenuous and usually very censurated. Not in this one... Great in every aspect, this is another MUST SEE movie.

If you´re not brazilian, you probably very hardly had the opportunity to know this movie.

I watched two times, at college. Only for that reason. This movie is very hard to find and it´s cover doesn´t show nothing about it´s true content.

The biography of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Why the hell they didn´t wrote "MOZART" instead "AMADEUS" on the cover?
And we hardly define what is that black silhouette with a weird hat. Poor colored cover for a so rich movie.

All right. Korean movies use to be pretty impressive. But what the hell means "OLD BOY" when you first see it?

I mean, the cover doesn´t explore the content of the movie at all...

If only I knew this movie would remark so deeply in my mind...

Great movie, but the cover is "DATED" too much. It looks old, looks poor. But it´s not!

Papillon means Butterfly in french, and I didn´t knew that until I watch this. DUH! I´m sorry...

Ignore the red elephant behind. Ignore the EMO/Gothic looking and the name "ELEPHANT". Watch and surprise yourself.

Good. But that clear color on the background was to be WHITE? Oh! this movie must be sooooo old...

Ignore that. This is a awesome production. Sean Connery gives us one of his better works in this movie...

It´s nothing about Lolita nor anything about that, you pervert! This is a great french movie!

If you are french, be proud! This made me to watch more french movies...

I want to share here some of my experience with bad DVD packages and posters, that simply made me to avoid their content. In some not so rare cases, I´ve got surprise with a great movie hidden behind a bad poster or a bad package...

Great list, but the poster of Taken was one of my favorite movie poster, i think it was cool, and by the way the title 'OldBoy' was its original title in the manga so i think they just use its original title instead of using another.
