1. Six Degrees of Hell: Grade C-
It is vaguely disturbing, and if not for the fact that it looks so cheaply put together it might be a good poster.
2. Limelight: Grade C
A slightly odd looking poster that is reliant on the critic blurbs. The images seem very out of focus.
3. The Big Year: Grade C
Playful and colorful, and a fun reflection of the three actors on-screen personas.
4. Vamps: Grade C+
It’s a sexy and vibrant poster, not wholly original, but it does jump out.
5. House: Grade B
I love it’s simplicity, letting the over-the-top character be a foreboding figure in our minds.
6. Knuckle: Grade B
I like the ugly grittiness, and the muted splash of red against the gray image.
7. The Rum Diary: Grade C+
The first poster for a long anticipated film leaves a lot of room for want. But it is difficult to be too hard on it, considering it is a teaser.
8. Young Adult: Grade B+
A creative design, particularly the illustrated image, and the hipster pink and green.
9. Rescue Me: Grade B+
‘Understated’ is the word for this poetic reflection on an entire series, and a beloved character.
10. Pariah: Grade A+
What a beautiful shade of moody purple, and negative space to frame the reflection. My only complaint, you guessed it, a little too much text. Let the image breathe a little more.
