    Posters!

    I'm looking for some posters. No, not you. I know we have a lot of great posters here on TTLG but that ain't the kind I'm talking about. I'm talking about the kind you frame and hang on your wall!



    At the moment I have a couple 80x60cm frames hanging above my computer, containing Red Dead Redemption and The Dark Knight posters, but I've had these for years and it's time for an upgrade. I've been poking around and I found one that I like.



    This is by Olly Moss, who also did art direction on Firewatch. This print was sold as a limited edition at Comic Con, then was briefly available for around 200 bucks on ebay after that, but now is nowhere to be found. Not that I'd be prepared to pay 200 bucks anyway. Olly says "go ahead and print my posters if you can't buy them", but the one I have embedded here is the biggest version of this poster available, so I don't think it'd look great if I had it printed. I also found this Firewatch art tho, which is pretty cool.

    I'm on the lookout for something cool and unique. Can be anything really, tho I'm partial to popculture-stuff. If there's no text or logo identifying the thing in the poster, even better. Help me out here people, I need some ideas.

    You've probably seen that series of NASA retro-future posters. Just mentioning them here because they have a similar style and well they're free: https://www.jpl.nasa.gov/visions-of-the-future/

    I love it.

    Also have a 90s Syndicate one, which I can't find an example of online.

    I like how their signatures reflect their personalities or personas. Romero's is like the equivalent of a vanity plate, Adrian's is artistic and polished without being pretentious, and John Carmack's is a barely legible chicken scrawl mess.

    I always wanted one of these, but originals go for $500-100 on Ebay these days. There are unofficial reproductions floating around the web though.

    There are some posters here that should be framed and hung. ;-)

    I've only collected horror posters for some time but some of those are works of art. The first Fright Night? https://www.google.com/url?sa=i&rct=...00607534601927 That is art to me. There are many I consider art. Too many. No more room on my walls and one room devoted every inch to them including the ceiling yet so many good ones in my trunks with no daylight.

    This weekend I get my "The Hills Have Eyes" signed by Michael Berryman at Tupelo Horrorcon. I have yet to decide which poster is going to get taken down so I can display it. I still mourn that I couldn't get my "Creepshow" signed by Berni Wrightson. To me the posters only have the magic on them if they are original theater run but reproductions are cheap and easy to obtain. Most horror from the 90's on up are dull in comparison to those earlier though.

    Yes, that Fright Night poster is quite nice. I still haven't seen that movie.

    I went ahead and ordered a couple posters earlier this week, should arrive next week. Will post pics.

    Firewatch was atmospheric, even pretty, but they always had the saturation up to 11. I color corrected this screenshot for funthis morning.

    In every movie I've seen him in except "One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest" he has been the bad guy. I can no longer think of this guy as a villain. Just can't do it. Michael Berryman is witty and wise and tells great stories. One of the nicest folks I've ever met.

    Welp, this is what I went with.



    Nothing wrong with sticking to the classics, eh?

    Nothing wrong at all. They look good. The Mad Max is just the same as original release but the Alien is better than. Alien had dull theater posters. You better hope this doesn't get you hooked on posters though. This is how it starts, just one or two, then before you know it you wonder how the hell you got this invested. And still you tell yourself you will quit after just one or two more of the ones you REALLY want.

    Heh. Now you gotta share some more pictures of your poster collection, Tocky.

    And yes, the Alien one is definitely newer, but I like how minimalist it is.

    Here's the poster I kept up in college (for the one semester I was actually allowed to have one.
