The Lookout Poster

I can’t talk about this poster without mention this interview in which director Scott Frank talks about how he hates the trailer and the poster for the movie because they misrepresent the kind of movie this is. So that is a big problem with the poster right there. The poster in itself, when considered outside [...]

Meet the Robinsons Poster

Oh look! It’s a bunch of weird characters ! And then there is the kid who looks out of place and shocked and stuff! This must be a fun movie! Ok, seriously now. I like the poster. Honestly! I do think that the film is basically about this one character traveling to the future and [...]

Blades of Glory Poster

This poster is basically Will Ferrell and Jon Heder wearing flamboyant spandex suits and doing a silly pose. Which I guess is a pretty good description of what the movie is all about. The poster goes the “take them seriously” route. It doesn’t itself make fun of the characters, what they do or their seriousness. [...]

No Reservations Poster

The good part: No white background! Instead we get a brown kitchen background. Which I honestly believe to be a step up. The bad part: Catherine Zeta-Jones look awfully chirpy for someone who recently lost her sister, unexpectedly has to take care of her niece and is forced to accept working with Aaron Eckhart by [...]

New Transformers Posters

(click to enlarge) Transformers is yet another one of those movies that I used to think was going to suck but that I now am starting to think might be lots of fun. And this two new character posters actually make me look forward to it more. Here is what I like: The look of [...]

Then and Now: The Hills Have Eyes Posters

The Hills Have Eyes (1977) Vs. The Hills Have Eyes (2006) n the newer poster we have the creepy image of a woman who is being held down by an unseen assailant. In the older poster we have a bald guy. Oh how much movie posters have changed. Honestly, the older poster is pretty cheesy [...]

Away from Her Poster

Here is a poster the once again proves that not all characters on a white background posters are created equal. I like the way the characters are positioned and the way they interact. And I think the lighting, hair, make-up and wardrobe give the poster a very classic and dignified look. But what I really [...]

Wind Chill Poster

The problem with using a tagline like “There are worse things than dying” is that some smartass (like me) is bound to respond with “Yeah, like watching this movie”. Besides that, the rest of the poster doesn’t do much to make this look interesting, does it? Basically what you can tell from it is that [...]

Pride Poster

I really hate this poster. Why? Mostly because it’s ugly. The whole stylised blue waves surrounding the faces of the cast makes for an unseemly contrast. And the blue waves themselves don’t really work. They feel weird, out of place, like they belong in a surfer movie. Also, the poster does little to make you [...]

Reign Over Me Poster

Oh, I love this poster, so so beautiful. We get the usual characters interacting stuff. Which is important. It let’s us see that Adam Sandler and Don Cheadle are in it, and that their relationship is central to the movie. But the characters are unusually small and most of the poster is taken by the [...]
