Poster Review: Stand Up Guys

Stand_up_guys_ver3

I don't know which is scarier:

The headstrips in this poster or the possibility that they might not be headstrips.

Poster Review: So Undercover

So_undercover

It's the return of Comedy White! Welcome back, Comedy White.

Miley's one-figered right hand is kinda creepy. Is that the secret weapon? Her deformity?

Also, Miley's pelvis couldn't be any more tucked if she was folded and placed in a suitcase. Yes, that wasn't design snark, that was posture snark.

Poster Review: Cold Light of Day

Who is that uncredited dude stiffly walking away from that explosion? Is this a new Terminator film? How do you not put Sigourney Weaver in your poster?

Poster Review: Butter

Butter_xlg

As a baker (intimate knowledge of butter wrappers) and a designer (intimate knowledge of printing technologies) I have yet to see sticks of butter with sides that perfectly flat, or wax paper that can be printed at what looks like about 600dpi with perfect color registration.

This would have been so much color either without the insets, or if the insets looked like they'd been printed in one color with a coarse screen. Better yet, the heads would all be carved out of butter, since that's what the damn movie's about.

Poster Review: Premium Rush

The only way that is JGL's head attached to that body is if:

  1. His neck is the longest neck ever recorded.
  2. His neck also includes at least 4 heavy duty VESA-certified pivot joints.

Poster Review: Playing for Keeps

Based on this poster, I'm thinking what Butler really wants is Quaid. Brokeback Mondrian?

Poster Review: 360

OK, who let the disc label desingner near the movie poster machine?

Poster Review: Arbitrage

"A real thriller. Richard Gere has never been more intensely alive."

Arbitrage
WTF is "intensly alive"? Is it code for "dead eyes"? Because I've never seen a actor with eyes that looked more dead than they do right here.
