Just arrived and here are the 3 streaky brothers together
US was definitely the way to go with these films but at least ROW is consistent in its own streaky way. Ridiculous packaging this arrived in as well, thought it was the Arrow Robin Hood based on the size of the box it was shipped in. Miracle no damage
I ordered two, one arrived in the same big box and another arrived separately in a normal brown wrap around. Crazy! Both would go nicely in the big box with padding. And what’s with the new single piece of pointless flat shredded brown cardboard that does nothing with a big square bar code on. Straaaaange thiiings!
As I have both versions I'd thought I'd compare them.
Obviously the US is Gloss but there's actually more difference then that.
The US version has a blue tint to it while the EU/UK one doesn't
"A Film by WES CRAVEN"
on the EU/UK version this is zero finish which gives it that Metallic look
While the US version it's printed on in a dark grey
Also the spines are different too, yet again the EU/UK version having the same Metallic finish on the Paramount & Miramax logo and no UHD logo
While the US version has used the same grey they did for the cover for studio logos and has the UHD logo as well.
Same as the backs
Surprisingly I think I actually prefer the UK/EU one
