One-sheet musings

Seems there’s a bit of commentary going on over the sorry state of movie posters. The main complaints (and they’re justified) is that they are boring, uninspired and often focus solely on the celebrity-of-the-moment that happens to be in the movie.

Movin’ on up

Unless Warners in particular and the industry … Continue reading

The Week in MMM: 8/26/05

In lieu of a podcast I’m just going to do a weekly wrap up what’s been happening. Turns out AudioBlogger only allows for about a five minute recording session, which is about 25 minutes shorter than I was planning on. I may investigate a better way to do this but will have to figure that … Continue reading
