Tuesday Poster Round Up: Top 10 Posters of 2010

- Advertisement -

The year is over, so naturally it is time for a retrospective on the Poster Round Up. It took some time, but gathered together are the 10 posters that stood out among the rest. Enjoy.

10. Douchebag

The title alone is great, but add in the fun scribbled illustration and you’ve got yourself a fun and irreverent poster.

9. Monsters

The dark psychedelia is unsettling, a really great design.

8. And Everything is Going Fine

Carefree and light as a feather, the stark look, and sharp contrast of the black and white is great.

7. Buried

It calls to mind much of the iconic art from Hitchcock’s Vertigo. It’s a little uneven and dizzying.

6. Heartbeats

The way the colors jump off of this poster is beautiful, and the delicate emotion of the actor’s faces is lovely.

5. Breathless

Beautiful iconography, such a perfect new wave design, and it helps that I love Jean Seberg.

4. Red State

This poster is so haunting and creepy. It is the stuff nightmares are made out of.

3. Don’t Be Afraid of The Dark

The illustration is meticulously detailed, from the grain of the wood doors, to the folds of the girls dress. I am a sucker for illustrated/hand drawn posters, and this was the best of the year.

2. Stonewall Uprising

The visceral emotion this poster puts forth is perfect. You can almost feel the anger.

1. Smash His Camera

This poster is absolutely perfect. It has the candid shot of the iconic Jackie Kennedy Onassis (and really, that’s all it needed) coupled with the minimalist design of the title. It is a breath of fresh air.

    New Title for Poster Round Up coming in 2011. “Worst Crap Ever”.

    Great list. But the only one i don’t care for (and strongly at that) is Red State… its like “oh, here’s a white sheet figure, presumably in a church.” So what, who cares.

    There was nothing remarkable about Grown Ups, including the posters. There were two Black Swan posters that just missed the cut and had I done the list over again, maybe one of them would have made it. I didn’t like any of the Kick-Ass posters.

    Fun fact: Movie posters don’t blow my mind, some are a little more aesthetically pleasing than others. I like the candid iconography of Jackie O.

    why are you people asking this moron questions. He can’t judge a movie poster to save his life. This is the worst crap ever.

    Where are the top 10? These are posters but they stink of mediocrity. Seriously where’s the Grown Ups poster on this list?.Maybe we like different things I guess but that timeless Jackie O photo, shouldn’t be blowing your mind still.

    Where is the KICK-ASS poster and BLACK SWAN POSTER?
    Also the other poster for BURIED was much better.
