Lovin' the Japanese Star Wars poster. I haven't seen that one before. I'm afraid this topic is going to get me started on collecting movie posters.

It's a bit ridiculous that those can't be printed on demand. This is the 21st century, after all. We have the technology.

What's funny is the standard for advertising here is a rather cheesy airbrushed replica as they were much cheaper. You don't see too many these days, but when I got here in the late 90's they were everywhere and looked awful!

My favorite thing about Cirio H. Santiago's Nam Angels, is that it's actually a remake of Jack Starett's (of Race with the Devil fame) The Losers. I dunno, I'm not a fan of those digitally drawn posters. They lack the color and the love of yesteryear. Some neat designs, but call me old fashioned. :wink:

Oh man...Puma Man! One of my favorite MST3K episodes. His flying is pretty spectacular.

Here's a few posters that I think are cool. Most are SOOOO bad now.

Some Raimi goodness.

Image

And this one is pretty cool too

Image

Here's one to brighten your day. :lol:

Well they are specifically made to be screen printed which mean anything beyond 6 or so color layers becomes very time consuming and expensive to produce. But the ink thickness and richness of the colors you can get with screen printing shits all over mass produced offset/lithograph printing. They need to be seen in person to really be appreciated, jpegs do them no justice.

Mondo did get Drew Struzan to come out of retirement though and got these released. Both cost like $300 on release and are like 20 layers. So that old school vibe can be translated into screen printing, just at a premium.

Image

Image

I get where your coming from though, the good old school posters have such a painterly charm.

Anyways lets keep the awesome posters rolling.

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



framing is only half the cost. any old poster that's fucked up needs to be linen backed. it's a very expensive "hobby".
most modern poster designs are shit but Death Proof, Black Snake Moan, Inglorious Bastards are excellent posters. Few of the
top of my head.

Never have seen that Blue Velvet poster before! Very neat. Glad to see another fan of Wages of Fear. Such a great film.

This thread inspired me to watch all of "Hell Comes to Frogtown" on youtube last night. It was amazing.

Also known as Warrior of the Lost World:

... and for total cheese factor, one featuring almost nothing in the actual movie. Worst movie poster ever? (especially if you know what it actually is):

Haha, that one is Nausicaa, of the Valley of the Wind.

Still haven't watched Warrior of the Lost World. I've had the VHS for ages now. Love Donald Pleasance and Fred Williamson, and hell, even the director. Dunno why I never have.

Watched Krull again just the other day, actually. Probably one of my least favorite fantasy films of the 80s, although it's still quite fun.

I just watched Peace Killers (1971) last night... It was one of the worst bad movies I've seen in a while. Decent poster though...

I need to find a Warrior Of The Lost World DVD now. Only seems to be one on ebay and US-UK shipping vs the value means I'd pay more in tax than it's worth..
