That poster screams "we found our poster designer on craigslist!"
The lost art of the movie one-sheet poster is dead.
Just a couple of notes... I caught The Bling Ring a couple weeks back. It's surprisingly kinetic for a Sofia Coppola film, and while enjoyable at times, I feel it's ultimately as shallow as most of its characters.
I caught a Nic Cage film marathon here last weekend, and I saw Vampire's Kiss for the first time. Holy fucking shit... I can't believe this movie wasn't part of my film lexicon until now. All the cliches about Nic Cage being batshit insane are on full display here. Unbelievable.
Also... ATTENTION SEATTLE CINEPHILES: Post Tenebras Lux is finally making its premiere here on July 26 at Northwest Film Forum. I plan to be there wide-eyed and ready to be floored.
Movies I've seen recently:
Before Sunrise-while not as good as the first 2 of the trilogy, the film still is a memorable piece to the trilogy. Great acting and storyline... B+
This is the End-weird and hilarious, I encourage Seth Rogan fans to highly go see this far out movie. And yeah, its actually about the apocalypse, not a joke playing on the actors (Which I thought it was) A-
World War Z-
I Finally saw World War Z this past weekend. Being a zombie fan, and have read Max Brooks, the film is so different from its source material its a wonder how it's based on it at all. Despite from that, the movie benefits from its creativity, and Brad Pitt delivers a memorable performance as a United Nations specialists. WWZ is no where near as good as classic zombie films like Shaun of the Dead, Dawn of the Dead, or Return of the Dead, but its a worthwhile summer block buster to see. The movie also benefits from being non stop action and great scenes, including the one on the airplane when zombies attack.
Does anyone else have a RAGING FUCKING NERD BONER for Pacific Rim like me?!
I can't wait to get rim jobbed this Friday. It looks like it might be the best monster movie ever made.
Xan I've had a boner since 'Mo (thats what those closest to del Toro call him) called me in 2011 and told me this movie had been greenlit and was going into pre-production. Basically a full year before you got your boner.
If anyone wants but doesn't have the Alien Anthology on Blu Ray, it is $19.99 on Amazon today only.
Couldn't resist the Criterion sale and got In The Mood For Love on Blu-Ray.... I've never seen this but always wanted to. Stoked to watch it tonight!
hahahaha i was wondering where the fuck that came from
Super Mario Brothers 3 is the only video game I have ever beat. I spent my entire Spring Break of sophmore year of college sitting around drinking Carlo Rossi in my underwear beating that game. SPRING BREAK!!!

The kid wanted me to play some 3D Star Wars game with him, but I put the kibosh on those plans and made him play a game that is 23 fucking years old instead.
Geez, didn't any of you guy see The Wizard? It totally gave away all of the secrets to beating SMB3.
I'm shocked that people struggled with SMB3. Funny thing is SMB2 is the one that gave me fits. I spent a lot of time trying to beat that game the first time. The Wizard, haha, JENNY LEWIS!
Holy shit. When I saw this thread at the top I was not expecting any of this hahahahaha
