Can you judge a man by his movie posters?

IMAGE: Clearly, this one indicates a collector without an ounce of shame.The Movie Blog thinks so. Here’s what they say about Star Wars and Lord of the Rings posters:

What I noticed about men who have these posters on their walls is that they’re EXTREMELY passionate people. If you are dating these people and do not like either one of these franchises, be prepared for hours of debating on the reasons why you didn’t like the movies. Other notable mentions: Star Trek, The Matrix

That’s your stereotypical scary fanboy, I suppose… But is everyone who likes Star Wars like that? Not really. (At least once they’re old enough to afford decent frames.) And what about the variations when it comes to the different posters. Are folks who like the circus poster different from those who prefer the classic? Original or SE release? OT or PT? Teaser or collage? Quick, notify Quizilla, there’s sure to be a meme in this!

And what about us? (Women with LOTR posters: Serious Tolkien fans or poncy elf fanciers? Women with Titanic posters: Hopelessly mushy romantics or future engineers?) Supposedly the comments over there were to address this, but instead it just ends up a bunch of folks sharing their posters. Ladies, your thoughts?

Indiana Jones poster retrospective

Helping to celebrate the release of the official teaser poster for Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (see previous entry), StarWars.com has a neat article looking at Indiana Jones posters from the previous adventures, covering the globe with posters from Poland, Australia, Belgium, and even Disneyland. Read the article by Pete Vilmur. The hatless, jacketless Indy poster looks more like a Bond flick poster!

Family Guy, Episode VI.I: A New Dope

familyguy.jpgSo the upcoming Family Guy episode ‘Blue Harvest’ has a poster. It’s pretty cute, but I’m still not sure if Family Guy can pull off the whole shebang… Even the best FG episodes seem like fast-forward Chinese food to me – funny at first, but a minute later I realize just how unsatisfying it really is. Can the addition of Star Wars sustain a whole hour of the show? Even with Stewie in a Vader costume?

I suppose I should just be grateful it’s not American Dad.
