L'Homme Puma? Is that Puma Man, as in "Puma Man, he flies like a moron!"? The best one, in my opinion, is the Frog Town one. Awesome.

Well, he IS faster than light... and stronger than the proverbial orangutan. :lol:

Also, not sure of the wisdom of letting your sex slave girl chain & collar carry a gun.

He has the power to rear-project major cities! Although... pumas aren't really known for their flying...

Problem is that the art of movie posters died in the 80's. Now everything is a photoshop job with a head shot of every major actor in the film.

Regarding the first post, yeah, they're all legit. Where Eagles Dare is certainly a poster that holds up to the awesome movie. Clint's highest kill count! The Cars That Eat People, aka The Cars That Ate Paris is supposedly a pretty awful movie. Anyone seen it? Always thought that car design was so cool, almost imported it a few times, but never read a damn good thing about it. I won't spread my Tarantino hatred anymore than I already have in the past, but that bottom right picture is Warren Oates, taken from one of the best posters ever: Drum.
Image

Can't tell the others, except the obvious, Black Snake Moan and Escape From New York. Can't remember what poster the babe has been ripped from. Almost thought it was Sofia Loren from Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow.

Skykid and Mosquito Fighter already touched on a lot of good ones. Here's some of my favs off the top of my head:

And besides the sheer mountain of Nazi corpses he and Richard Burton leave in their wake, Clint manages to pull off an SS officer disguise despite his massive 50s rocker 'do. :mrgreen:

@Skykid - totally shocked to see Die Hard and Conan in there! Are you fans of those movies or something? :-P


Lol, how did you know! To be honest, I'm a fan of every movie I posted in one way or another, but the Conan appreciation has been much more recent.

Few more from the horror stable:

I think the best example of super awesome to total shit for movie posters would be the original star wars versus the DVD covers that came out in like 2004 or 2005. Maybe the most unimaginative turds I've ever seen.

Some of my favs

I think the Hildebrandt version is quite fugly (who are these people?), and it's not even an original design.

It was based on this superior poster by Tom Jung (which was also used in 1977 to advertise Star Wars):

I still think this is the best one:

Since we were just talking about it, Excalibur had a nice poster. Again, I'd argue that almost any movie, regardless how shitty, could have had an amazing movie poster. Then somewhere in the late 80's, the artform died off. Such a pity...

I always liked this one, in fact I do have it rolled up in a tube, was linen backed and touched up but the frame is 3mm too small... It would feel wrong to cut it to size.

Image


And my favourite movie poster of all time:

Image


CMoon is right, the art of movie posters died a long time ago, will people 20 years from now be paying good money to have current ones preserved and framed? Doubt it.

Modern movie posters have gotten so bad that it has actually created an underground scene of movie lovers/artists making officially licensed low run screenprints for new and old movies. They have been putting out some stellar stuff in the past few years.

Have a browse through here for some examples: http://www.mondoarchive.com/

Mondo is the big name but there are dozens of others putting out awesomeness.

Oh, coooool. Awesome. I kind of hate slasher/giallo murder scenes but that Bird w/ Crystal Plumage poster is superb. And very appropriate to the movie's plot.

...and then terry330 cost me some money.

Turns out all those newly produced posters get immediately bought up and hawked on ebay for 2-6x the cost, only days after release. They really need to start putting in a one per person policy.

Haha yeah, it can be an expensive hoddy, even moreso getting things properly framed.

The aftermarket is pretty crzy and things can sellout in under 5 min. There are purchasing limits but flippers always seem to find a way around it. Sucks but without the aftermarket there is no way a lot of people would ever be able to own any prints.

Here's some of what I've got framed and up on the walls:

These are so good.

The Japanese SW one is awesome, and I love Charlie's VHS covers. Hell's Angels in Vietnam, too much win. :lol:

The Totoros are beautiful too, and that Excalibur is pretty rad.

I like them all, this thread's great.
