It’s Studio Ghibli-related movie art so you know I have to post this… 🙂
I noticed an article about artist Jordan Bolton HERE at creators.vice.com because of my love of anything Studio Ghibli-related. You can see a couple more of his Ghibli object posters at my link to that article.
I then discovered that he’s done of bunch of these movie prop posters for a wide variety of films such as The Shawshank Redemption, Pulp Fiction, Her, and Breakfast At Tiffany’s. Very cool stuff! Bolton calls this series of movie prop posters Objects and you can see them (plus other great movie & music art) on his Tumblr and Etsy pages.
**I’ve managed to finally write my February Blind Spot review! See you tomorrow with my review of my February Blind Spot choice: Watership Down.
Ha! Sooo sad. 😉 But some of these are pretty clever. These have been around for a while but I had to share. Yes, movie posters made using Emoji.
You can view them all on the Emoji Films TumblrHERE. I love The Shining one, of course. Spring Breakers is also pretty clever, as well as the Melancholia one below. I also like the simplicity of Secretary – I always thought of that Emoji as the “spanking” one. Guess I was right! 😉
I’m sure everyone has seen the character posters for Snoopy And Charlie Brown: The Peanuts Movie by now but it occurred to me that A NEW PEANUTS MOVIE IS COMING OUT SOON & I’ve not really even mentioned it on my blog yet!!!!! Not sure why as I adorePeanuts (especially Snoopy). 🙂
Anyway – if you want to see the rest of the character posters, you can check them out at GeekTyrant HERE.
Also, I love these Peanuts characters as horror movie icons by artist Dennis Davies HERE. Adorably evil!
“I do have a test today, that wasn’t bullshit. It’s on European socialism. I mean, really, what’s the point? I’m not European. I don’t plan on being European. So who gives a crap if they’re socialists? They could be fascist anarchists, it still doesn’t change the fact that I don’t own a car.”

**Okay – I LOVE how successful this blogathon has been but MAN I miss posting random stuff & current movie reviews (Just saw The Zero Theorem yesterday – review in April after this blogathon!). But two things I love have come together so I must share this immediately. Mondo posters and Frozen!!! Check out this Frozen poster by Tom Whalen for Mondo. Nice! Link here: GeekTyrant. There’s also a poster in the link for American Hustle which is way better than the movie. You can read my review for Frozen HERE. Spoiler: I loved it. 🙂
(Answer: Looking hot & taking his shirt off. Phwoar!)
Okay – I’ve had a lot of Thor-related stuff to post this past week but just haven’t had the time so I figured I’d stick it all in one place now. I really enjoyed The Dark World & thought it was fun (Don’t listen to the haters! You can read my review HERE).
First of all, the above poster is by Ken Taylor for Mondo (link: SlashFilm). There’s also the below Loki poster by Mike Mitchell at the link. I love Mondo posters.
Next, it’s been all over the blogs by now but I LOVE that this fan poster ended up being used in all seriousness in a Shanghai movie theater for the film’s release:
As for Hemsworth’s rather gratuitous and completely unnecessary (but oh so welcome!) shirtless scene in The Dark World, the actor was apparently not that thrilled at having to film the scene. Hey – if they can do it for Star Trek Into Darkness, they can do it for those of us who like boys as well. 😉
“Take it off!”
Here’s quite an interesting article at SlashFilm: What Loki Scenes Were Added to ‘Thor: The Dark World’ and What Did Joss Whedon Rewrite?
And for those who care about this sort of thing, here’s a good article at io9: 8 Things Marvel Got Wrong About Thor and Norse Mythology. (I’m not too bothered. I’m just happy to drool over Hemsworth)
And some info on the two end credit scenes in The Dark World (hold your pee & stick around, people!). Obviously SPOILERS in the link if you haven’t yet seen the film: There Are 2 End-Credit Scenes In The ‘Thor’ Sequel — Here’s What They Mean For Future Marvel Films. (Link here: Business Insider)
Here’s some info on the upcoming Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D/Thor crossover episode airing November 19th in the U.S. (Yay! I better catch up on those episodes): GeekTyrant
Finally, Chris Hemsworth told Jimmy Kimmel the other night about the 600 calorie a day diet he’s on for Ron Howard’s Heart of the Sea, which is about a bunch of guys starving to death while stranded at sea. 600 calories? Yikes! Link HERE.
Now let’s end with a sexy photo of Chris Hemsworth. He’s so pretty…
This year’s Stoker has often been compared to Shadow Of A Doubt but really doesn’t come close to Hitchcock’s classic. Nothing does… I absolutely loved the TV episodes of Alfred Hitchcock Presents & The Alfred Hitchcock Hour as a kid as well.
Happy Birthday, Mr Hitchcock – Thanks for all the great films. 🙂
Sir Alfred Joseph Hitchcock (13 August 1899 – 29 April 1980)
These posters are excellent! The following is from SlashFilm:
The Alamo Drafthouse, in fact, has created two wines themed around the multiple Oscar-winning Jonathan Demme film, The Silence of the Lambs. There’s Hannibal Lecter’s “The Cannibal Chianti” and Buffalo Bill’s “Suit Yourself Pinot Grigio,” both of which are now on sale.
The posters were created by artist Caesar Moreno.
And here’s my confession: I don’t really like The Silence Of The Lambs. (Other than that Goodbye Horses song in it. I love that song. Cheesy goodness!) Discuss. 😉
By artist Michael Krasnopolski who said “The basic concept was to create a very modernist, minimalist poster series for movie enthusiasts. The idea is based on a very simple grid: a circle and two diagonals inscribed in a square.”
Looks interesting. Below info from The Playlist plus more info & photos in the link:
“CBGB,” an upcoming cinematic chronicle of the famed New York music venue, features a veritable who’s-who of stars playing the great and good (and bad!) of the punk rock scene which centred on the venue in the 1980s. Justin Bartha plays Stiv Bators (of Dead Boys), Malin Akerman plays Blondie lead singer Debbie Harry, Mickey Sumner plays Patti Smith, Rupert Grint plays the Dead Boys guitarist Cheetah Chrome, Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins is Iggy Pop with Alan Rickman as the legendary Hilly Kristal, the founder of CBGB.
