There I was, going about my business on the train like normal. I was about to watch a movie on my iPad to pass the time, and then, a deep sense of Fassbender-type shame washed over me as I clicked on the image of said movie. I hoped nobody would notice. The movie was Jack Reacher. You know, that 2012 action flick starring a miscast Tom Cruise, based on the book, One Shot, by Lee Child? Yeah, that one. Was I ashamed to be watching Jack Reacher? No, it's a solid film. But, I was ashamed of Jack Reacher's DVD cover art.
That got me thinking. Jack Reacher has some laughably bad DVD cover art. What other decent-to-pretty great movies are out there getting their reputations sullied by what's on the box? They say you can't judge a book by its cover, but I'm about to do just that with these DVDs (and/or Blu Rays). Let's get to it.
