Movie poster heaven

A really cool discovery: A blog devoted to movie posters through the ages. It’s a goldmine – really really cool stuff.

Here’s one example – a side by side analysis of the poster for Titanic and the poster for Brokeback Mountain.

The whole hyphen debacle with the poster for The 40-year-old virgin.

But there’s so much more to look at on this wonderful site – I feel like a kid in a candy store. Where to start??

And here – they choose what they feel to be the Best Movie Poster of 2005. And they explain WHY they chose what they chose. I love this stuff.

I blog-rolled this blog immediately.

Thanks, Dave!

    LOVE the “74 Facts and One Lie”. Love the Irish-ness of your whole scene. Just got back from Ireland with my husband for our honeymoon. FABULOUS.

    Come and see us over at Molten Thought!
