    I just came across this poster and thought it looked very interesting. C'mon, it's something that we don't see everyday. A memorable scene from another movie in their own poster. I doubt this was the main poster, at least imdb uses different one, but it's still funny. Well I haven't seen the movie so I don't get the meaning.

    Moonlight Serenade (1997)

    This one is a classic:

    Great idea! I went and rounded up a couple dozen of my favorite posters and realized I have no idea what art is.

    I don't have any movie posters, but I do own a copy of the House DVD. That is one of the trippiest, weirdest movies I've ever seen. As I was watching it, I kept thinking to myself "I can't believe what I'm seeing." I'm not sure which part of the movie is weirdest--the first half hour in which we meet the girls involved (and which comes across as a movie geared towards giggling pre-teen girls, which almost caused me to shut it off), or the last half hour or so, when all hell breaks loose.

    I didn't get around to putting the words down for a reply to divemaster's thread on How I Got Interested in Asian Film, but here's a picture from part of my story:

    I don't really keep up with movie posters because I believe, with all due respect to comrade @sitenoise, that trailers are more representative of what's the movie about, rather than a single picture (although yes, the picture might give you an overview of what the film is about but still...) Anyway, my present search is for Erik Matti's MMFF entry, SEKLUSYON (2016), and while looking for its ahem, copy, I saw its poster which is a bit, unconventional for a Catholic country. The image in the poster is like a cross between Santo Nino (trademark: long curl hair) and a bishop.

    What year was this movie released? I'm interested in watching, but have a few choices named House.

    Saw an ad today for the upcoming Love off the Cuff, the next sequel to Love in a Puff ... it reminded me of walking through Chinatown and seeing from a distance this poster:

    I could barely stop myself from bursting out laughing, thinking they had gone waaaay too far with the smoking connection - it wasn't until I got much closer that I realised the title actually didn't end in a double 't'.

    Looks like "Love in the Butt" to me, LOL.

    That's an entirely different kind of movie!

    The Oldboy one is a little weaker than the others but these are great for the Trilogy. I'm going to use them in my database.
