Don't worry. I'm into hip-hop and even I wouldn't lose sleep over it.

I feel like most of these are flavor of the week artists and won't still be popular this time next year.

Post Malone broke the record set by Michael Jackson with Thriller for a song spending the longest time on the Billboard charts

Why is Cyborg there? he does the same "I used to do cool stuff with my human but now I have a robot body" shtick as Robotman, but in a way less interesting way.

Minimalist posters get a lot of well-deserved poo poo, but I'm really fond of One Page Movie because at least it gives you some feel of what you're seeing





















These are all terrible. The American History X one genuinely seems like a joke

The Lebowski one and the Over The Top one are both pretty good, but so many of them are just so drab

The Over The Top one is the only one that manages to actually convey an emotion if you haven't seen the movie.

Although, I haven't Seen American History X. If there actually is a scene where a guy gets out of a shower and is just extremely confused, then fair enough that poster nailed it.

I'm guessing the Chinese Bumblebee poster is invoking designs from the 50's or 60's. Is there any point to that?

Who in the world OK'd that Dumbo poster? It's unholy.

Who in the world OK'd a movie about a circus elephant? Did they have some kinda chart where they pinpointed 2019 as the last year where they can make money off it before a tipping point gets hit and people start seeing Dumbo as a child-friendly version of Blackfish?

KOTEX GOD OF BLOOD posted:

we can all rest easy knowing that claude rains didnt live to see the invisible man in “doom patrol” and “the league of extraordinary gentlemen”

That's not the Invisible Man, that's Negative Man. He's a guy merged with some kind of radioactive alien ghost thing. The look is clearly inspired by the Invisible Man, but in Negative Man's case the bandages protect people around him from his radioactivity.

The Doom Patrol is actually pretty cool, the basic idea is that it's a group of heroes whose superpowers are also disabilities, and vice versa. They handle problems too weird for the Justice League. When the world is threatened by a painting that can observe the people observing it, when the Brotherhood of Dada wants to free everyone's mind with the bicycle that was ridden during the very first LSD trip, call in the Doom Patrol!

I remember Zootopia had all these animal-puns for Oscar contenders, with the exception of Spotlight. Is it that hard to eke a joke on a real-life drama about Catholic priest scandals?

They actually did have one for Spotlight but it got cut. It was full-on Thomas Nast style the pope as a child-eating crocodile, and I guess somebody decided that could offend people

I'm really curious to see how they're gonna make an even bigger piss drinking scene in the sequel. The first movie's piss drinking scene is pretty extensive, and they drink a lot of piss. I'm not sure how they're gonna top it

To reiterate: the actual joke is basically a "eeeewwwww he peed in the pool!!!!" joke but with birds

Except that the pool is pee, and they swam in the pee, and drank the pee, and had pee splash fights, and spat streams of pee into each other's mouths

Logan isn't that different, it's just sad. He even fights an evil clone of himself. But it's sad so you don't notice that that's just as silly as fighting a robot samurai

Like, it's way better than the other X-Men movies but it's still very much the same kind of movie.

What else is there to Mignola beyond Hellboy and that Amazing Screw-On Head pilot?

Hellboy is a pretty big comic book universe. Which makes the new Hellboy movie an even worse choice. They should've done a BPRD or Lobster Johnson movie, and done a Hellboy cameo at the end. People would've gone crazy

That was/is a trend with lovely comedies. Eddie Murphy posters aren't unique in that regard. I feel like the marketing department was trying to warn us.

That's especially fun with effects-driven movies like Upstream Color and Monsters where the reason they cost almost nothing to make is because the people making them were able to do their own CGI on their own time for nothing.

Was there any CGI in Upstream Color? Was the flower in the swimming pool done with computers?

Yeah but heroic sacrifice is, like, understandable. There's a level of emotional processing that helps distance the loss because it's an act with inherent meaning.

Everyone celebrating after the long fight and, uh, Clint getting loving shanked by a half-dead Thanos because he's not letting you get away clean is shocking. It's snatching away the victory and tainting it with loss. It refutes the hope of the situation with the grim reminder of death.

They did that in Avengers 2 and it was really stupid.
