This has always been one of my favorite original Star Wars posters, so seeing this Guardians of the Galaxy poster from Poster Posse made my day. Is it possible for something to be 100% derivative and also inspired? Probably not. Whatever, I still enjoyed seeing it.
I love this series of illustrations and anecdotes about New York bookstores by New Yorker cartoonist Bob Eckstein. This is just one – click through for several more great ones.
The Criterion Collection just announced their August titles. My pick is 1979’s All That Jazz, a thinly veiled autobiographical picture of director/choreographer Bob Fosse. Fosse is one of the greatest choreographers EVAR, and All that Jazz is his 8 1/2. Actually, I like it better than 8 1/2.
My Warner Archive pick for this week:
I’ve never heard of it, but Gable and Bennett are great, so I’d be down. The only thing is it’s from 1935, and I bet it would’ve been way better if it had actually been Pre-Code.
Disney posters redesigned to be more “dramatic”, via Oh My Disney. I really like the Lion King one, but the Pooh one made me laugh out loud.
