Poster Passion: Kill Bill Volume 2

24 Jan

Last week we looked at the posters from the first half of Tarantino’s revenge epic Kill Bill.  We’re going to finish that up this week with Kill Bill Volume 2.  I don’t know what I can say about it this week that I didn’t already say last time.  Except that some of the posters are even cooler this time around.  There is one image that was recycled, they just slapped the “Volume 2” on there and let it slide, which is kind of lame.  But I feel like they make up for it with some of the others.  Especially the last two.  So awesome.

Poster Passion: Kill Bill Volume 1

16 Jan

Kill Bill Volume 1 was the first Tarantino film that I got to see in theaters.  It blew my mind.  I loved it.  The film, the story, the vision, and the references liberally scattered through the entire thing.  But the posters.  Oh man, those posters.  The design for all of them is eye-catching, and the character sheets are some of the best I’ve ever seen.  Please enjoy.

Poster Passion: Jackie Brown

9 Jan

Django Unchained was released on Christmas Day, during our small holiday hiatus.  But that is not going to stop us from continuing our Tarantino poster celebration.  Today, we’re going to look at his modern blaxploitation (and sort of unofficial sequel to Foxy BrownJackie Brown.  I’ve heard some people call this his best film, and others call it his most boring.  Personally, I’m just thankful someone put Pam Grier in a starring role again.  Anyway, let’s look at the wonderful posters we got from Jackie Brown.

Poster Passion: Pulp Fiction

13 Dec

We continue our look into Quentin Tarantino’s posters this week with his second feature film Pulp Fiction.  Widely considered one of the greatest films of all time, this masterpiece focuses on the characters that drive the story in its posters.  And while its definitely not the best posters the director has ever had, its still far and away better than most of what is out there these days.  So, sit back, enjoy the posters, and continue getting excited for Django Unchained!

Poster Passion: Reservoir Dogs

5 Dec

Let’s continue the trend we started last week of building up to Django Unchained.  We’re very excited about this film.  And it has some amazing posters that we are going to get to.  But, as we stated last week, Tarantino has a habit of making sure his films have fantastic posters.  That’s fairly unusual in this day and age.  To do anything other than a simple photoshop job is pretty amazing.  But to go beyond that and to actually put some thought and design into the promotional artwork is something to truly be treasured.

So, let’s take a look at the posters from the first film he directed: Reservoir Dogs.

Poster Passion: Django

28 Nov

Quentin Tarantino’s films have been a rare bright spot in the modern film poster landscape.  Creative, interesting, and artistic, they are almost surprising when you see them in the hallway of a modern cinema.  This is perhaps just one more thing that he has borrowed from the films of the past, but it is a breath of fresh air all the same.

So, in honor of his upcoming Django Unchained, today we will be looking at the posters of the original Django, from way back in 1966.  Directed by Sergio Corbucci (the incredible spaghetti western director that no one remembers) and starring the always exciting Franco Nero, the original film was one of the most violent films made up to that point.  Fantastic posters for a fantastic film.  Enjoy.

Poster Passion: Ocean’s 11

13 Nov

The sixties were a time of change, excitement, and absolutely beautiful films.  And, unlike today, those films typically had incredible art to advertise them.  No photoshop means its a lot harder to be lazy with the promotional artwork.  So, with that in mind, let’s look at the posters from 1960’s Ocean’s 11.
