‘Tis the season everyone.

‘Tis the season for every blog writing degenerate within reach of a keyboard to compile their lists of the best and worst of the year that was. This is my first effort – would you expect any less?

In a year filled with mostly mediocre to disappointing blockbusters and tent-poles, we saw many great films slip under the radar – a few of those even doing some serious box office damage. The same can be said about this year’s range of posters – generally bland and cookie-cutter, with a few tasty morsels spread throughout. Let us begin…

Observe and Report

Observe and Report

Extremely cool pop-art styled poster and the first appearance of two in this list from Steven Soderburgh. I see it more as a piece of art as opposed to a medium that is designed to get asses into seats. Top marks for the risqué tagline and barcode. The art fiend in me appreciates the design, but the male in me wonders what it would be like to have sex with a pornstar.
