1. Paranorman: Grade C+
I usually don’t like any taglines, but for whatever reason, I think this one is good for this fun little poster.
2. The Look: Grade B-
Charlotte Rampling is always a striking, regal presence. Her beauty has gracefully aged, and is on stark display in this poster.
3. The Woman in Black: Grade B
There is nothing new about this poster, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t creepy.
4. Vysotsky: Thank God I’m Alive: Grade B
Is there a better combination of colors than Black and Red? It can make even the most banal posters stylish and sexy.
5. Chilling Romance: Grade B
It is odd, and slightly disturbing. I love the innocent touches, and the soft purple.
6. Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol: Grade D
This poster is so boring that without the title I’d think it was an ad for a clothing line.
7. Elevate: Grade B+
Vibrant colors, with a traditional African art feel, coupled with a modern looking text gives this poster a fresh look.
8. Return to Zero: Grade B+
There’s a sleek elegance to this poster that’s accentuated by the vertical line used as a subtle artistic flair.
9. The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo: Grade C+
Unfortunately, not as provocative as the first poster, it bypasses the sex and bluntness of the first, and takes a more traditional route this time, including a terrible tagline.
10. Snow on tha Bluff: Grade A
Raw, and poetic, the skin is the story, beautiful and shocking, its scars, its warpaint, its sorrow.
