Are you not then paying a lot of money for a slip cover just to hide a boring steel? Seems a waste of money. There have been some great slip covers on normal amaray blu rays., some even better than the steelbook designs. I have found myself doing that recently at a fraction of the cost. If you're not bothered whats on the inside, does it really matter if its a steelbook or not?

I loved the film and personally like the front of the steel, but my disappointment comes from the lack of rear artwork. A premium set from Filmarena, Nova, etc, usually will have much more content, thereby making up for an average WWA. Not to say standard slips are bad, but there's obviously a difference between a slipcover from a high street retailer and a limited-run fullslip with extras from a speciality retailer.

I thought this film looked interesting, but this is a shockingly bad steel. They truely think we will plop down £30 for any old toss.

What with every retailer showing a black steelbook in their mock-ups quite surprised to see what looks like a green tint and although green does indeed figure on other poster images have yet to see this particular image in any other colours apart from black and blue.

Pics from Steelbookpro revealing a zero finish with metallic reflections to the artwork:-

@Noodles The concept is dope! Thanks for sharing. Way better than the utterly disappointing version they're putting out, took a hard pass on that one. I'm tired of steelbooks with no rear artwork
