If Posters Told the Truth….

Wow. I stumbled upon a few of these over at Sasha Stone’s Awardsdaily and then hit the motherload. These are hilarious. In some cases, they’re reaching, but in most, DEAD ON. It’s also worth noticing the great craftsmanship in some of these. They look absolutely spectacular. I’m not sure who exactly to give due credit for designing these, but props to them.

Some of the highlights definitely include “The Tree of Life” and the painfully honest “Transformers 3.” Granted, some of these films do have potential for decency or even greatness. And yet, these posters advertise what all of us are really thinking, even if we’re looking forward to them. Without a doubt, my favorite of the lot is the “Harry Potter” one, featuring a quote that I have been saying to myself for longer than I can remember.

Find your summer favorite in the selections I’ve made after the jump. If it’s not there, check out the full load at the The Shiznit. Enjoy. Read more…

The Beauty of Pixar by Leandro Copperfield

December 31, 2010 Leave a comment

This is a great little compilation made of all the films made by Pixar in its 15 year existence. I use the term “little” lightly, for it is actually quite expansive. If there are any folks out there not convinced of the leaps and bounds that this studio has taken to advance the form of not only animation, but cinema as a whole. Some of these films I like, some of them I’m not to crazy about, and some of them absolutely changed my life. After incredible, game-changing movies like “Finding Nemo” and “Wall-E,” I wasn’t sure what more they could possibly present to the public…and then came “Toy Story 3.” The original has been my favorite animated film for quite a long time, and I’m not convinced that the third installment doesn’t just pass it right by. What a phenomenal experience that will hopefully stand the test of time just as the original did.

Here is a touching tribute to everything Pixar has done for cinema. Credit to Leandro Copperfield for such a great montage.
