13 visually excellent films with lackluster posters

1. Blade Runner 2049

A lot of the best posters for this one rely mostly on sharp color contrasts than anything - ironic, given that it is easily the most striking film of the year on a visual level.

For reference.

This one's also somewhat interesting but looks more photoshopped. The rest of the posters have a desaturated, somewhat ugly look.

Bruce DonnersJohn Wick 2.
Rating: B
I was kind of disappointed it didn't live up to the first one. I hope they end the trilogy with a satisfying ending.


Now patiently waiting for Chapter 3.

I honestly preferred this one to the first John Wick, though they're more or less on par with each other.

Hunt for the Wilderpeople was an underrated gem of last year, so I'm rooting for Taika Waititi to give the MCU a shot in the arm.

Speaking as someone who found Rogue One to be competent but disappointing, I certainly am concerned that creative autonomy is being sacrificed for formula. If the rest of the films are just going to copy-paste elements from the original trilogy I'm afraid I may very well grow tired of a franchise I've loved since childhood.

I guess I'm fine with J.J. Abrams coming back. I liked The Force Awakens a lot when I saw it in theaters, but I haven't rewatched it in full since then. I was hoping to maybe see someone like Brad Bird direct it though.

Speaking as someone who hasn't read the book I found the film to be thoroughly entertaining. I won't deny that it could have benefitted from a bit of trimming and wasn't totally free of formula but it had some incentive scares in spite of relying to a degree on jump scares and the actors all do excellent jobs. I feel its dramatic and comic elements were the strongest parts. Probably a B+.

Death ProofClose Encounters of the Third Kind - 10/10


Which version did you watch? I actually haven't seen this film in full and am curious as to whether the version currently in theaters is the strongest one overall.

The Promise - C+

A well-intentioned, well acted, but ultimately very uneven film.

Children of Men was excellent in nearly every way. It's an incredibly immersive film visually (not to mention very prescient but also evenhanded) but also has excellent performances (especially from Clive Owen), memorable, complex characters with understandable motives, and a riveting, emotional story that effortlessly melds genres. What?[font=Roboto, arial, sans-serif]Cuar?n[/font], Lubezki and company achieved here was the equivalent of catching lightning in a bottle. I'm going with a high A if not an A+, and I can say with confidence that this film may very well be in my top twenty of all time.

I was thinking about Radiohead's Kid A recently, and how Thom Yorke wrote some lyrics by pulling phrases out of a hat and randomly sequencing them. I wonder if the OP does that too.

Regardless of my thoughts on the channel I find it unreasonable to throw my support behind Vogt-Roberts. If you don't find Cinemasins' approach funny, that's fine. Nobody is forcing you to embrace it. However, he was taking a joke channel far too seriously - one that went on record to say that their "sins" have no real value. By having this temper tantrum he's only giving the channel attention that it might not get if he ignored it. It's laughable that he tries pulling the "I'm not mad" card as well when making that many tweets about the video shows that he cares too much. Comparing a channel that didn't like his trash film to Trump also exudes pettiness. I would feel the same way if it was any other Director (especially one I respected).
