Good movie but terrible Steelbook artwork. Please change it.,
This review is from: Captain Phillips - Limited Edition Steelbook [Blu-ray]  (Blu-ray)
The Steelbook artwork needs to be changed. The team which approved this artwork should be fired for being unimaginative and lazy.

Why rate a film with 1 star if you thought it was good? Who cares about the artwork?

As one commenter has already said why on earth mark down a film you think is good because you don't like the artwork? I don't give cat's arse for the artwork it's the film that matters. Perhaps you said this for a joke.

totally agree with the other 2 comments...this is the problem of the star system and this is a good example of it not being used correctly!

You cannot...and must NOT rate a film based upon artwork. Do you visit the cinema based upon the stye of artwork? I would NOT think so. Your star rating for the artwork has devalued an excellent and gripping film (in terms of its overall rating on Amazon). I rarely rate films but will certainly be awarding it 5 stars now. Please, never, ever rate a film as one star because of artwork again

Good grief. One star because you don't like the artwork? Great idea Amazon should introduce a new star system. The current one is too restricting as it seems to think that when you are rating a film it's all about the film and the film alone. What about those of us who liked the film but were traumatised by the leading actors haircut? Think Tom Hanks in The Da Vinci Code (oh no that doesn't work both were one star efforts). Or indeed we disliked the film but rather liked the intro. section?
I loved Gravity 5 stars, but did not like the fact that when it started off at my local they messed up and it was 2 d, so that's a five stars and a one star review. Come on Amazon pull your finger out.

RUSH has a boring steelbook design,expect you gave that one star as well.Buy the normal one instead,its cheaper.If you want to pay extra for some steel I have some old baked bean tins you can have for a fiver

the star rating system needs overhauling by Amazon, I noticed lots of one or two stars given to GTA5 at the time, simply because it failed to connect to the Internet, graphically and game wise, it was cracking stuff, with oceans that had real swells. plus some cars were very juicy:) So a better system would be to have stars based on , say three key parts. The cover work, the actual Film itself, and if relevant, ease of connecting to internet if it is multi player, how ever, American company's like Amazon, are simply to lazy to change anything that will cost them money, rather like Linden labs outdated Second life, still charging 900US$ for a bit of play land, and grids, that make it look like a kids toy set. Cant see any star format changing any time soon!

While I think the review itself is a bit silly, do feel that Amazon should distinguish reviews regarding the media type, be it blu ray/DVD or any variant of a special edition.
Totally hate the fact that all reviews are lumped together- I myself had a 1 star Dark Knight Rises review down voted a ridiculous amount of times for the fact I complained about the total lack of extras on the DVD version, therefore not representing value for money. This might of lowered the average score on a whole, as the review was included with the rest of the blu ray and DVD reviews that had been collated.
This was being despite the fact I was dissatisfied with the extras on the DVD opposed to the blu ray version and the fact there was no 2 DVD special edition available (despite the fact there was 2 disc editions to both Batman Begins and The Dark Knight)
In a sense, the same concept applies to this- When you purchase a blu ray steelbook you should be seen as a collector, as you are paying a premium rate for the same product other than the packaging. I know the buyer doesn't need to purchase the edition, but can almost see where he is coming from (almost!) & just wish that in the future (although I know they won't!) Amazon would base the reviews on the fact whilst one review might be buying a product on DVD, another might be buying the same product on blu ray but rating the product one star based on the fact the picture quality is akin to that of a DVD and therefore should seperate products by the type for which they fall into.
The reviews name "Steelbook Man" would suggest he is a collector of steelbook edition blu rays, and I myself would be annoyed if i'd amassed a collection of steelbooks, and when my favourite film came out there either wasn't a steelbook edition or the packaging for it was poor. Yes, people do get funny over these types of things, but I stand by my point that Amazon should have a seperate review page for the steelbook of the film alone where customers can voice their grievances over the overall product and whether it represents value for money or not.

Although I would like to know the reasoning behind the reviewer giving 'Gladiator' a 1 star review, and Zac Effron's '17 Again' a 3 star rating...
