ALT-POSTR-MONDAY FOR AUGUST 22, 2016

Another week of posters and one more week until August is done! I’m listening to Alice Cooper’s “Billion Dollar Babies” as I prep this new set for all of you. I don’t know why I told you that, but enjoy!

  1. First, Alice Cooper is a great way to not only pass the time, but work on blog posts. Glad you shared that. I found that They Live and Psycho grabbed me the most this week – Psycho has long been my favorite movie. All the posters though really looked great. Alien and Aliens seem to be popular each week. Seems like a lot of people like to draw inspiration from those movies – great movies, can’t blame them.

    • I’m sure that a lot of my choices stem from my own favorite films (Alien, Aliens, The Thing to name a few). Still, I also go with what pleases my eye regardless of whether it is a favorite.

  2. I’m late again! (Just call me The White Rabbit, not really.) Slick and trippy for Alien, and more of the alien than we saw, but it beats the egg. They Live! That one just says it. The black and white is gripping in that distressed style, but more to the point the message is what grabs me. That’s pretty much what we’re seeing these days, “Don’t question anything! Just live on Facebook and be useless!” Jurassic World, wow! Love the dino, of course, and the kids almost look “safe” in that bubble that is presumably some super strong alloy and hopefully has enough oxygen.

    Pan’s Labyrinth looks heated with the red, almost like the fairy creatures are in warmer climates, like Tartarus types… hard to say. Noooooo, Norman. The simplicity is good for him. (OMG, I got the super creeps watching Psycho so I could try and perform Norman Bates scene in The Pit! I had to let myself go and just pretend he was tired. He scared me that much. I didn’t want to take too much of Norman into my psyche to do his lines! Ahhhhhh!)

    Force Awakens has that wonderful edge of almost separate panels showing different layers of story and in a diagonal way which is really cool. (I managed to watch a little of that. I was surprised I could. My husband said, “Well, it’s a universe you know.” So there that is.) Ah, Jungle Book, a boy and his bear. Very lovely, but the snake will get ya. Uh-oh, a blinking poster. Not bad at all. Love the kitty on the roof. I’m not sure if I saw To Catch a Thief. I want to say yes but I’m not sure. Either way the art work is also slick and simple. And YEAH, Watership Down! Man! That is not a kid’s cartoon! Yes, we see a bunny and flowers, but no! It’s a grim flick, man! It’s almost like what I was saying with Bambi and the writer Felix Salten. (Which I did get that sequel and another by him thanks to you!) So with W.D. it’s hard to isolate because the title and the vision of that work is so gripping that the darkness is part of knowing the mythos of Watership Down. There is more than just gore, too. It’s a power-trip as well, and a tale of liberty. Extremely hard-earned liberty.

    • The ball the kids are in in the Jurassic World poster was a mode of transportation around the park in the film. It was quiet and didn’t disturb the animals but was not a place of safety when it came to the Indominus Rex of the poster. Just so ya know. 😉
