This was just something quick i did because I can't sleep. This is meant to not have the usual list of actors and legal text.

I'm not sure if I'm going to make a back. I don't know if this style will work for the back. I might keep the same idea with 'Jack Nicholson' near the top in red, and 'Stanley Kubrick' at the bottom. Anyone think this might work?

Fun fact: I didn't copy/paste any of the text. I could have, but it felt more genuine if I typed it all out.

You executed the idea really well, but it's a bit dull, even though I suppose that was the intended effect. :p

I actually really like the simplicity of it. If you made a back, and a printable version, I'd definitely use this and put it in my collection. Very nice!

I had a good idea to fill the back just enough. I think it turned out pretty well.

Kinda wish you'd add some sort of background or presentation.

#6, I probably will tomorrow. It's pretty late right now, and I'm feeling lazy. Think of the presentation as a placeholder.

Okay, so I decided to do the presentation now.

Simple, but it works well when you consider the movie it's representing.

I like it.

Wow, no copy-pasting? That's awesome. It's like writing lines in school when you were a little kid. As for the actual design of the box, I really like the simplicity of it all. One gripe would be that the front is brighter then the back. Well done.

#11, Haha, I was hoping nobody would notice that. I didn't save the .PDN of the front, so I didn't have the exact color that was used as an overlay, and had to get as close as possible to it.

Pretty good concept, but it would be quite confusing for people who haven't watched the movie.

Thanks to this movie I couldn't sleep for a whole week. Yeah I'm a pussy

#14 Go Crazy?...

This is really cool. I tried this idea for something else but dropped it because it looked horrible... this is perfect though!

I kind of dig it. Especially since the repeating quote is appropriate considering its context in the movie. Off the top of my head, I'm wondering if it would be cool to have the words compose a maze.

#16, Shit man, that's an awesome idea. If I had the artistic ability, I would definitely try it. The only reason I ever gave this a shot was because of how simple and easy it was to execute.

Great box! By far my favorite movie! You should add a faded blood splatter, that would be perfect!

It's a good concept, but I think the repeated line is a bit overboard. I know you meant to have repetition, but maybe in a different style it would work?

#19, It's supposed to be excessive. It shows that Jack has gone crazy.

If the lines looked any different, it wouldn't make sense. The lines are supposed to have been written on a typewriter.

#20, oh well I haven't seen the movie personally, so I wouldn't know. =/

#22, Yeah, I realized that anybody who hasn't seen the movie wouldn't understand this at all, but oh well. I liked the idea too much to let it pass.

Wow, really creative. I haven't seen the movie though. I am trying to figure out if I love it or hate it, lol. One thing I would suggest is to play around with the layer effects and the filters in order to make the text look more like it was typewritten and less like it has been copypasted. If that makes sense. You know, make it look more like it is actually on the paper.

Great execution of a great concept. It suits the film perfectly!

I haven't seen the movie so I don't really get it. Looks-wise, it's okay, but you should move the text up so that you can fit one more line in there, to fill up more space.
