What the????? new [re: anisette]  

My personal favourite aside from the gut-bustingly-funny Fly poster is the "looks like it was done by a 6-year-old with MS Paint" poster of Gremlins.



Am I suspended in gaffa?

This one is fitting tribute to good old Steve Irwin.

Re: Movie Poster Madness! new [re: Persilot]  

this thread shows a great deal of cultural myopia. consider these facts:

- surrealism in eastern europe, unlike in the west, survived well into 1980s; some artists still work in that framework (e.g. jan svankmajer)

- as sam_x rightly pointed out, a poster was considered an art form (hence great posters for shitty films, like trading places or the muppet movie)

- since 1990s, 20-something harvard mbas have been teaching eastern europe how to properly do things, hence the end of this psychodellic poster craze. thank god, the world is safe, and all the publicity for hollywood movies comes directly from hollywood too. also, thanks to the 20-something harvard mbas, eastern europe is nearly devoid of any labour laws, and people literally cannot earn their living.

Well, that just totally dragged the mood down. I guess we should all cry, if we're not allowed to laugh.

Re: Movie Poster Madness! new [re: tv eye]  

Agreed... maybe one or two are funny (Saturday Night Fever), but most of these posters are great. They're beautiful and creatively thought-out, and far more interesting visually than the glamour-shot-with-explosion-behind-it stuff we have here.

Heck, in Eastern Europe, even children's books are often illustrated with surrealistic or avante-garde art. It allows one to stretch one's imagination regarding the subject more. (For instance, the Ghandi poster feels very evocative of both Ghandi's philosophical stance and the political situation India at the time to me.)

Yeah. Atlantis. And that's only because the damn island sank ages before there was an America to go and fuck it up the ass.
