Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Hard Day's Night: 50th Anniversary Restoration [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
What on earth has that cover got to do with AHDN? Of all the great imagery connected to the film we get this? Four ugly paintings,looking very little like The Beatles - hopefully before release, someone will have a re-think.

Hopefully it's just an outer cover that can go straight into the re-cycling box!

I'd like to think you're right but I've got a feeling this is the main cover they're inflicting on us. Other countries are using a variety of different covers - none are perfect but all are better than this thing. (By the way, my post should have read - looking NOTHING like The Beatles)

I agree,I will by the US Criterion release unless they change this horrible cover and that is £10 more :(

Agreed, it's an awful cover! I'm going to buy the US Criterion release instead simply because this cover sucks.

It's appropriate that you're buying the American release when you say this cover "sucks". Nevertheless, I cannot understand why they didn't stick to the original album/dvd cover. Hopefully, this ugly poster art is only on the outer sleeve.

The cover of the Criterion release, while being FAR more in keeping with the spirit of the movie, is unfortunately only region A, according to Blu-ray.com, who've never been wrong with the region codings of any Blu-ray title I have ever purchased.

Interesting review and interesting comments.
I agree with your remarks on the cover, which is awful and has nothing to do with the film itself. What's wrong with these people??
I was wondering about the encoding of the Criterion myself, and as Douglas has already answered, I'm afraid it's going to be a Region A.
There's another thing I've noticed, comparing the version here to the Criterion one on Amazon.com: the latter seems to have, within the extras, Richard Lester's short film "the Running Jumping and Standing Still Film" with Peter Sellers, which I don't see listed here.
I don't know if there are other differencies between the two versions.
