Pathfinder Posters

When I was younger I used to love the Conan The Barbarian comic books. I especially liked looking at the covers for those books, which generally showed the ripped Conan fighting some new frightening menace. This poster for Pathfinder reminds me a lot of those covers, and of the covers of the Conan books I [...]

Hmmmm, I wonder what this poster reminds me of. Oh, that’s right, here it is: If your poster looks like the promotional material for a video game, consider getting a new poster.



Disturbia Poster

As it has been mentioned elsewhere, this poster is very reminiscent of Hitchcock’s Rear Window. As is, in fact, the whole premise of the movie. I don’t think that is such a good idea, from a marketing standpoint. People don’t want to go see something that seems like a cheap knock off of a great [...]



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 [...]



Shooter Poster

If I admit I really liked this poster, will you “shoot” me? I know, I know, silly pun, but I couldn’t resist it. I did like poster. The pose, the angle, the use of lighting and of the clouds in order to frame Wahlberg, it all amounts to a pretty cool image. The transparent letters [...]



TMNT Poster

Ok, time for a confession. When I was a kid I had 4 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ posters, one for every character. And I loved them. They proudly hanged on my wall for several years. Now, for a second confession. I actually want to see the new TMNT movie. I managed to maintain myself totally [...]



Opening This Weekend: I Think I Love My Wife

March 15th, 2007 at 10:29 pm » Comments (0)

I don’t think this is a bad movie poster. It does portray the basic facts of the movie: it is about a man torn between his wife and a hot other woman, and it has Chris Rock. And the white background is very classic. Of course, it’s not very inspired. It’s the kind of poster [...]



Opening This Weekend: Premonition

Some people really liked this poster and thought it was very clever. I guess it is clever, but it is also so damn bland. And the design is only somewhat related to the theme of the movie. Also, if your movie’s main draw is the fact that it stars Sandra Bullock, sell Sandra Bullock! I [...]



Opening This Weekend: Dead Silence

March 15th, 2007 at 10:03 pm » Comments (16)

Oh, look! It’s a ventriloquist dummy! And there is a creepy finger making the “shush” sign in front of him! Scary! Honestly, this strikes me as neither creepy enough to appeal to old time horror fans, nor disgusting enough to appeal to the SAW and Hostel crowd. It also doesn’t tell us much interesting about [...]
