More SAW V

August 28th, 2008 at 10:48 pm » Comments (1)

“You won’t believe how it ends.” Does it end with a belief stretching twist? Because I can sort of believe that. As for the ongoing saga of the attempt to make the SAW V posters visually interesting they have skewered the normal white background style (good) but failed to find something else that really grabs [...]

The Argentine Poster

August 26th, 2008 at 11:25 pm » Comments (5)

Well yesterday it was Australia and today we have another poster for an historic epic. This time it’s The Argentine, the second part of Steven Soderbergh Che biopic. The resemblances and differences between the posters for the two films are interesting. All of them sell the films as being filled with beautiful imagery and lots [...]

Catching Up is Hard to Do

Well, since I complained about the lack of originality of the last blood drive poster I guess I should commend them for trying something a little different. Not really different enough to be striking, but I appreciate he effort. Can you say brooding? Can you say it while constantly looking down? Mister Payne looks like [...]

Not Really a Hiatus…

…but posting will probably be sparse for the next week or so. But do not feel lonely because MPA is not around. Remember, Wall-E still loves you. (Thanks to Casty for the poster)

This, That and the Other Thing

I kind of thought that the French and other international posters for W. were going to use something a little more provocative, since the subject matter shouldn’t be quite as sensitive and controversial in international markets. But I guess they think the film is provocative enough by itself and are playing it cool with the [...]

Three New Mirrors Poster

August 7th, 2008 at 11:31 pm » Comments (5)

I would have thought that a supernatural thriller involving mirrors could make for some pretty great weird/creepy posters, but that hasn’t been the case so far for this Kiefer Sutherland starer. We are now four posters in and none of them manages to come up with a catchy and compelling image. And this is despite [...]

SAW Blood Drive Poster

You know, I like the fact that there is a SAW blood drive. From a social good sense it’s a terrific thing. But I can only see so many posters for sexy nurses and still be interested. We’ve been there. It was interesting. It was fresh. It was exciting. Now all of it is just [...]

W. Gets a Teaser

August 4th, 2008 at 11:36 pm » Comments (0)

I have to admit I’m somewhat fascinated by this movie. On paper it sounds like a terrible, terrible idea. But there is a certain weirdness about it that makes me think it might not be good movie, but still just might be an interesting movie watching experience. Also interesting is the choice of image for [...]
