Mes Deux Cents

Hi TBA,

I have seen advertisements in newspapers for films that have intrigued me enough to find out more about a film. Does that count?

I think that I actually see more trailers that turn me off to films than movie posters.

Hi Mes Deux Cents:

Yes; that absolutely counts!

Yeah; that's probably true for most people. I guess people get their first glimpse from trailers.

It may have, but off the top of my head can't think of one flick that influenced me by the poster. But I can't say absolutely not.

By the way, hubby got the bootleg First Sunday this weekend. Oy vey! LOL! I fell asleep within the first 30 minutes & I'm being generous!

It's really a shame to have some decent named AA stars end up in a trash flick.

@ Kimi

I give you credit for getting through the 30 minutes! LOL.

@ Rawdawgbuffalo

{*** shrugging shoulders *** ) :) Yep. You're right. I agree. :)

Just off the strength of movie posters:

The Departed (the original)
Munich
There Will Be Blood
American Beauty
The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King (the original)
City of God
Minority Reports
The Aviator (the original)
Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End (the original with just Deep standing in a fog with a sword)

The main problem these days with movie posters are studios make way too many versions.

They do? Hmmmm. I never noticed. :)

Yes, this one reminds me of the poster for the 1975 film, "Let's Do It Again." That one, however, was slightly more creative -- and was actually painted.

@ Paco

Really? That's interesting. :)
