    Default Would You Put Up With This?

    I live in Australia, and I am very picky when it comes to DVD's. When I buy them, I want them to look great and amazing, like books sort of.

    BUT CHECK OUT THESE EYESORES!!

    Okay, here is how our DVD's look in Oz... Tell me what the gigantic difference is between an American DVD of Constantine, and an Australian DVD of Constantine.

    American version:


    Australian version:



    (They must think we STOOPID or something. Who could miss that! Terrible eyesore, ruins the cover art, and it may sound picky but it's not even a peel-off. It's there forever.
    TOTALLY ruined my beautiful Gilmore Girls covers.


    Do you think this is a bit over the top? Or not?

    Hmm... wouldn't bother me too much, but I agree they could just put it in the back and not ruin the cover art.

    because australia is about twenty years behind the rest of the world with everything.
    apparently we need these huge gigantic things in case a mother picks up 'Dawn of the Dead' and mistakes it for a children's movie and gets a nasty shock when she gets home. *queue fantastic eyeroll*
