Looks good in that cha-cha purple but the quality of the artwork is not up to the standard of say Ralf Krause of the famous poster on the left:-

Of course nice to see some of these getting the steelbook treatment but would be more down my street if some of the countless classics from the golden age of cinema including films noir get the same treatment.

I'm not sure what you're asking exactly. I don't know what the connection would be between those 3 titles.

This Dirty Dancing 4K SteelBook is being released by Lionsgate.

Beetlejuice is a Warner Brothers release and, as you mentioned, already had a 4K release recently.

Nightmare is also a Warner Brothers release in the U.S. but hasn't had a 4K release yet.


I’m talking about this list here.

There's no excuse this should happen. Really?

Look at the images that you provided for Jumanji and American Hustle.

Dwayne Johnson is in the center of the image and a little further forward than the rest of the cast.

Christian Bale is in the center and further forward than the rest of the cast.

They are the stars. They are the focus. This is the way it's done and should be done even if it messes with your OCD.
Uhm you're missing the point. Apparently you have no experience in composition and dealing with the printing process. You DO NOT touch the order of the text but with the artful poses. These do not happen accidentally. A lot of time is put in to photograph these. Knowing how the text are to be aligned, do the Positioning properly. Don't be so tunnel visioned with the incorrect process. This is graphics art 101. You would get an F if you turned this in for a Simple homework.

Is this an investment piece? Could become sought after I think. People do love this and it’s quite nice with the slip. if it comes to uk I might grab one and sit on it. No egg jokes please.

I think it's hard to judge for value in today's market where reprints can always happen. If there is a reprint that is ordered, after a while it's no longer a Best Buy exclusive and it's being sent to other retailers like Target and Walmart.

Where the fun comes in is when the steelbook sells out, the studio says, glad we did a good job with this, but we don't need to print more. And it doesn't come back...
