Default The Case of the Naked Blu-ray!! The Slipcover debacle Thread

I know that a lot of movies from Lionsgate comes with slipcovers, but my copy of War didn't so I was wondering if the movie comes with one or not! Thanks.

Some Saw III cases have the slip cover.

Part of me likes slip covers and another part of me wants to throw them in the trash. They actually defeat the purpose of a keep case. What's next, a clear sleeve to protect the slipcover?

I love slipcovers, as they provide a bit of protection to the actual case. Too bad 3:10 to Yuma doesn't have one either.

Default Harold and Kumar 2- Slipcover?

First of all, I don't believe Harold and Kumar: Escape from Guantanamo Bay warrants a slipcover. Do you??

Secondly, if they are going to put one on the 2nd movie, they NEED one on the first.

Let me beat some of you to the punch with your "if you don't like the slipcover, just take it off"

It makes me angry that some executive would decide to put one on a sequel but not the original, especially with them being released the same day....

What are your thoughts on this slipcover and/or slipcovers in general? I think they are appropriate depending on the release.

EDITED: To remove questioning what the movie made in the box office, due to the fact that other low grossing movies in my collection have slipcovers (jumper, employee of the month, etc)

They only have coverslips if it pulled in a lot out of the box office??????

The only coverslips for Blu-Ray I've seen are:

Spiderman 3
Pirates of the Carribean 3: At World's End
SAW II
SAW III

In this case, along with many others, the slipcover is to show that the release is a special edition and/or Unrated editions. It's not a big deal, it's just an extra marketing strategy.

I am not a slipcover enthusiast, so maybe I'm not the best choice to weigh in, but I've never known the carboard case to be a reflection of merit on the movie. This isnt anything new, even for Blu, right? Jumper had a slipcover.

You seem fired up, perhaps I missed the sarcasm?

Has anyone else's copy of Harold & Kumar: Escape from Guantanamo Bay shipped from Warner yet? My White Castle shipped out yesterday, but no word on this one. Strange...

I want to say $29.99, although they were doing a store re-design and had everything all messed up, so I may be off.
