Things have been slow around here as of late, but there’s a reason! Not only have the movies I’ve been getting have I not been excited about watching, but I’ve also been watching Mad Men. Currently on season 3, which I am proud to have gotten to, considering Rampaige keeps complaining about me watching it. In fact, she won’t even let me watch it! Dammit! Well, just not when she’s there, it’s not like I can NEVER watch it or anything. I recently tried watching George Romero’s “Martin” but got about halfway through and just couldn’t finish. Not that it was necessarily bad, I just don’t particularly enjoy vampire movies, and especially not gritty ones that tell things from a slightly different perspective. I’m not just here to complain, though, because I’m also here to talk about two new movie posters! Here’s the first one:
In case you couldn’t tell, it’s for the remake/prequel of The Thing. Does anyone know whether or not it’s a prequel or remake? Supposedly it deals with the events of the Norwegian camp leading up to the events of the Kurt Russell version, but as you can see, by just calling it “The Thing” it implies a remake. The filmmakers have stressed the importance of practical effects on this film, and the teaser trailer that made its way around the internet last year was okay, so I’m going to hold out hope. Here’s the other poster:
WHAT A FUCKING POSTER. When I saw this poster for The Dark Knight Rises on my phone, I wasn’t at all impressed. It wasn’t until I looked at it on the computer that I saw the detail in the buildings and how they shape the bat logo and just kind of got lost in the thing. It’s almost like one of those magic eye things where I keep expecting something to turn 3D if only I could make my eyes go blurry. Usually I just huff gasoline for that effect, but I didn’t have any nearby at the time. Despite my excitement, I need to make sure I don’t do too much research on this movie because the spoilers I already read might have ruined a surprise or two. Dammit. Anyways, if you have any movie recommendations, feel free to send them this way so I can toss them in my Netflix Queue!
