Towelhead Poster

April 3rd, 2008 at 1:26 am » Comments (5)

The title is challenging. The subject matter is edgy. The actual film has divided audiences and critics and generated some heated discussion. The poster is blue and sedated. One of this things is not like the others. I think I understand what they were going for here. We have had many pictures over the years [...]

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 [...]

The Weekly Round-Up: Chapter 27, Meet Dave, The Babysitters, Gunnin’ for that #1 Spot, Passchendaele and Flashbacks of a Fool

Nothing better to start the week than a palate cleansing poster round-up. Chapter 27 I know what I’m supposed to think when I see this poster. I’m supposed to think about Mark Chapman. About the creepy expression in his eyes. And about the terrible crime he is about to commit. But instead all I’m thinking [...]

Final My Blueberry Nights Poster

Wait, we are just now getting the final domestic version for the My Blueberry Nights poster? Seems like the first (international) poster was released ages ago. And the film itself premiered at last year’s Cannes Film Festival. It’s sure taking long for it to make it’s way to the U.S. Anyway, this poster is very [...]

Redbelt Poster

So, I read the movie’s announcement, and I didn’t get it. Then I watched the trailer, and I did get it! But now I have been starring at this poster for the past few days, and I don’t get it anymore. Ok, that is not really true. I still get it. But not because of [...]

The Life Before Her Eyes Poster

March 12th, 2008 at 10:02 pm » Comments (2)

A while back there was another “The Life Before Her Eyes” poster, about which I made a post. Subsequently I (and pretty much every other site) was asked to take the poster down, which I did. And now it’s mostly gone from the Internet, although you can still find it in a few places. Anyways, [...]

Smart People Poster

I honestly feel like outsourcing my commentaries on this poster to the fellows over at I Watch Stuff. I realize that letters cut from a New Yorker might feel too ransom-notey, but is Scrabble really the best way they could find to identify “smart people”? Since when is Scrabble a game of the intelligentsia any [...]

Compare and Contrast: My Own Private Idaho and Paranoid Park

March 4th, 2008 at 9:56 am » Comments (2)

My Own Private Idaho and Paranoid Park are separated by 16 years, but are united by a common director, Gus Van Sant, a very similar posters. Ok, perhaps very similar is pushing it, but I still find it amusing that both use the device of slicing an image in several strips and then putting these [...]

No Country For Old Men – International Vs. Domestic Posters

March 3rd, 2008 at 10:27 am » Comments (6)

I have already talked about the main poster for No Country a couple of times. It’s nice, but I don’t think it captures the beauty or intensity of the film. But that is the domestic poster, perhaps the international posters are different? Well, as it turns out most countries used the domestic poster with the [...]

Meet The Browns Final Poster
(click for a large version)

And here is the final poster for Tyler Perry’s Meet the Browns, which ditches the general design of the two previous teaser posters and goes for a more ‘everything but the kitchen sink’ approach.[...]
