Revel In the Splendor of the Fake Criterion Collection

By  · Published on December 3rd, 2010

If you’re like me, you want your visual comedy to make fun of everybody. A shotgun blast that sprays all involved in a certain undertaking with at least a few pellets that will sting later.

From the filmmakers, to the films, to the audience, to Criterion itself (and its high falutin’ collection), that’s exactly what this new Tumblr blog Fake Criterions achieves. Plus, the photoshop ain’t half bad. The art is pitch-perfect in showcasing the Criterion cover design style.

Plus, there are some great cinematic gems here that seem to have been overlooked by Criterion. When will we finally see Ernest Goes to Jail get the deluxe disc treatment it deserves? When, Criterion, when?

Check out some of our favorite fake Criterion DVD covers:

Fingers crossed for a Criterion of Zeus and Roxanne.
