War, Inc. Poster

War Inc. Poster

- Oh, look! A cool new poster for War, Inc.
- Nice looking poster. What is the movie about?
- Hmm, I think it’s about war.
- Could you be a little more specific?
- Sure. Let me see here. I think it’s about the intersection of money with war. You know, about how greed can fuel war and stuff like that.
- Oh. So it’s a documentary?
- I don’t think so, look at all the actors that are involved.
- But maybe they all do narration or give interviews?
- No, look at this quote that’s in the poster: “One of those rare satires with the danger left in.” It must be some kind of political satire.
- Yeah, that makes more sense. But wait a minute. Look at the tagline: “An incendiary political cartoon”. So it’s an animated political satire?
- I don’t think that is what they mean by cartoon. Again, look at all the actors.
- Voice over? I know! This must be some sort animation/satire/documentary hybrid.
- That’s not very likely.
- Yeah. But it’s sort of a confusing poster. It’s a drama/satire of some sort, but I don’t know anything about the story, just about the themes, and those seem like they belong in something more educational, like a documentary or a book.
- You also know that it stars John Cusack.
- I guess there is that.
- And it is sort of an intriguing poster.
- Yeah, but not in a very good way.

    Haha, this must be one of your best posts ever Gus! Mmm, yeah, it’s a bit confusing, but I love it all the same. I like the treatment with the quotes, though it does seem a bit full on. But you know, whatever. John Cusack is in it!
