Packaging / Design

This case might look alright but the overall choices for a functional design are just terrible.

First of, there's no digitray (obviously) which makes te entire case nothing but cardboard and not a very sturdy type either. This makes for an easily damaged case and a scratch-happy cardboard pocket to put the disc in as well.

But from a graphic standpoint the case looks allright (if you can ignore the transit damages for long enough). The holographic cover is a nice touch and the slipcase cutout actually has a thin plastic over it which I think is very smart.

There's some static printed within the slipcase, making it appear that the screen has gone static once you take the cardboard case out. The static is however overly light in my opinion and doesn't really look to good even though the idea itself is pretty clever.

Other than this there's not much to say. If this had been a digipack I bet there's a lot of people who would have loved it, but now it's just a poor poor packaging choice.


Disc contents / Extras

It's nice to see futurama in widescreen for once, and the audio commentary is top notch as usual.

As for the rest of the extras, they do feel a bit slim if you were to compare it with a regular movie title...

... But then again, this is a Futurama movie and as we allready know there are 3 more films planned at this point, so the special features might get a little better till next time.

All in all, there's enough to get by but it's not a super-packed edition by any means.


Sidenotes

The barcode only appears on a back cover duplicate taped to the outside of the case (this paper is not pictured).

Mystepho, my man. You've got some wild ideas going. If you can save this case I say go for it! Personally I'm still to old fashioned to start modifying cases but you know I don't judge.

Hey James...

I must say it's rather scary to realise that I'm actually influencing people not to buy stuff ;)

I was thinking about getting this but after reading your review of it I'll wait and see what the UK packaging looks like before I dive in.

When I see this it makes me wonder if it would be so hard to just add a disctray and end up with a nice regular packaging? I'll order one and try...
