Stunning artwork in attractive warm tones and v. nice to see a more discreet slab of text on the back compared to normal.

As the beginning episode of a trilogy, I would say the screenwriting was highly repressed. All clues were absent hence producing crap acting. But the audio visual effects are stunning.

I took the photos with a smartphone in natural light without flash or filter. It is much brighter and more colorful in hand :thumbs:

that’s how it should be done. That’s how I take photos and they come out great. And I’m still on iPhone 7

shouldn’t use a flash on steels and definitely shouldn’t be using filters. I want to see the product properly. Not adding filters and saturation to make art look brighter like some do on insta or megabee on here. Not a true picture or representation

The spot gloss against that misty metallic zero finish looks really bad to me. Can’t stand it when they do that and focus more on the metallic look

Had it in hand the other day as well (German edition), decided against buying it. The spot gloss is very nice but the metallic half of the artwork just looks washed out. Very 50-50 release as finish goes. Couldn't pull the trigger even though it was only 24€. :dunno:

Thanks for the great pics . . . steelbook looks splendid and the artwork just perfect.

No harm in a couple more pics - courtesy Steelbookpro - showing the liberal use of spot gloss as well as the relatively understated and unobtrusive text on the back:-
