Meet the Browns Poster

January 14th, 2008 at 9:10 am » Comments (5)

(click for a larger version) The two posters from last year’s Tyler Perry’s Why Did I Get Married surprised me. The teaser because of it’s visual design and the main poster for what I thought was a very refreshing and effective lack of cynicism. Well, it’s another year, which apparently means another Tyler Perry movie [...]

Bag Boy Movie Poster

January 10th, 2008 at 9:33 pm » Comments (1)

I don’t really feel like making any substantive commentary about this poster for Bag Boy. Let’s just say that I think it’s probably a fine poster for the movie it’s trying to sell. But what I want to ask is this: Will the National Lampoon brand ever be associated with a decent comedy again? Also, [...]

Journey to the Center of the Earth 3D Poster

Even tough some recent films have had very good success with it in limited releases, I think that the whole 3D movie experience still faces some resistance, especially among the slightly older movie going set. This has a lot to do with what happened the last time we were seeing a tide of 3D movies. [...]

Drillbit Taylor Poster

I tend to think that Owen Wilson’s humor works best when he is interacting with someone. His is most famous for his partnerships with Ben Stiller and Vince Vaughn, but even in a film in which he was the main star, like You, Me and Dupree, he generally has plenty of other characters to interact [...]

Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day Poster

I think the best thing about this poster is Frances McDormand expression. She truly looks mortified by what is going on, but there is still a little twinkle of fascination in her eyes. Amy Adams, on the other hand, looks a lot more fascinated than mortified, and although her expression isn’t quite as funny it’s [...]

New Funny Games Poster

January 9th, 2008 at 9:31 pm » Comments (1)

I really loved the first Funny Games poster, in large part because I found it upsetting in a way that movie posters rarely are. Unfortunately, this new poster doesn’t come close to matching that reaction. It reminds me a little of the SAW posters, due to the white background and to the bloody image in [...]

Hancock Poster

January 7th, 2008 at 8:54 pm » Comments (0)

I’m really not getting the appeal of Hancock. It’s sort of a super-hero movie parody in a time when super-hero movies are still well liked and which features a apparently not very likable main character. And as far as I can tell from the trailer, the movie doesn’t seem very funny. But, Will Smith has [...]

You Don’t Mess with the Zohan Poster

Adam Sandler has made I career for himself by essentially playing the same average Joe in almost single movie he has made. In each film the Adam Sandler character finds himself in a different outlandish situation: he gets a kid, he has a remote control for life, he has to marry his buddy, etc. But [...]
