Check These Out: Terrible Films as Criterion Collection Releases
Many film connoisseurs are well aware of the prestigious Criterion Collection, an assortment of cinema's finest and most influential films from prominent filmmakers around the world. While there's always some dissension amongst fans regarding what films deserve the honor being included in the collection (especially Michael Bay's Armageddon, a film that is actually in the collection), there are plenty that will almost never, ever be considered for the prestigious series. Well, a Tumblr called Fake Criterions takes "classic" films like Ghost Dad and Ernest Goes to Jail and imagines what the Criterion DVD cover art might look like.
These are just a few of our favorites, and there's more great work featuring The Fast and the Furious Tokyo Drift and It's Pat: The Movie over at Fake Criterions Tumblr page as well. This venture looks to be a fairly recent creation that only goes back as far as November 19th earlier this year, so I would expect many more to likely crop up as time goes on. Personally, if Ernest Goes to Jail actually did hit the Criterion Collection, I would buy it in a heartbeat. The same can be said for this brilliant imagining of Point Break going Criterion. Although this is obviously just a joke, these are still impressive and amusing creations. Pretty funny, eh?
