As my ever-increasing Film Reviews and other Film Stuff page shows, I really do have a huge passion for the creativity, imagination and impact films generate. It’s no surprise then that I have a few film posters on my wall. These were specially designed by an artist contact I used to know and I wanted to share them with you. Is there one that stands out to you? Do you have any film posters on your wall or one you wish you had?
I voted! Totoro! I love it! I want it!!!!!! 🙂
I thought that might be yours! What do you have up on your wall?
No movie posters. 😦 I’d love a “cinema room” – I’d hang loads of posters up in it! 🙂
Can I come! 🙂
Sure! Come on over to my mansion with massive cinema room! 🙂
Vertigo for me! I have a framed Cinema Paradiso poster and a poster for La Belle et La Bete.
Cinema Paradiso is lovely. Gloriously sentimental. I haven’t seen the other one. Did you buy them at the same time/place?
La Belle et La Bete is an old silent movie, I saw it once with Philip Glass performing the score live and loved it. You would like it I think.
I’ve seen about 7 or 8 different silent movies. Always so many hidden gems around left to see though 🙂
That Vertigo one is awesome. I’m particular proud of a Matrix poster. My only complaint is that it isn’t big enough.
Thanks. It looks a lot more striking without the slight reflection. It’s not even in my top 5 Hitchcock films, but it really is a wonderful image. If you have a link/photo to your poster feel free to share your Matrix one.
Vertigo. I don’t have any myself, but I wouldn’t mind that one
That will probably win it 🙂 How has the hot weather affected your garden?
Much growth and loads of watering, thanks, Alex
They are all awesome, but I voted for Vertigo. That’s an amazing image. Don’t have any movie posters of my own.
I see the Vertigo one as striking, the My Neighbour Totoro as calming and Rocky as stylish.
I have a lot of posters that have been up forevvver and I probably need a major refresh. Plus mine aren’t framed nicely like your artwork is!
What kind of posters do you have? They do look nicer framed but it did make it trickier to photograph.
Swingers (“Walking in Vegas”), Cry-Baby, The Innkeepers, Grindhouse Deathproof/Planet Terror, and some non-movie stuff.
Nice 🙂 I have a Banksy style print and a George Bellows New York small poster but doubt I will put them up.
I need to refresh and change them and get rid of old posters. Maybe your post will inspire that!
Vertigo a la The Dark Knight Rises. Awesome. Great works of art.
I think The Dark Knight has the best posters of any film I’ve seen. They were all just superb.
I like how the Vertigo poster really resembles the Sark Knight Rises poster. I agree about the Batman posters. and even the character posters. Good posts!
Glad you like them. Have a great weekend dude.
AAAAAAAhhh! Don’t hate me, Alex. After you mentioned book cover favorites yesterday, I started a post on movie posters. It should be posted later today. Great minds think alike!
Nothing like that Cindy. I look forward to your post 🙂 How did you vote btw?
I voted for Vertigo. It’s on my favorite list. 🙂
Wow they really look great framed. Did that cost you much? Cos I have posters all over the damn place but not being framed, they are just stuck to the walls, always falling off.
As the posters are an unusual size meant I had to get them especially made. I got all three done at the same place and was able to work out a discount Apprentice-style. It depends how many you would want done.
Hmm I’ll do some research. I remember I used to make awesome frames in grade 11 woodwork… if only I still had those skills!!!
BTW – how are the posters attached the the back of the frame? I have tried spray glue, like an aerosol can, once before but bubbles popped up everywhere
It was attached as part of the frame. It has a white rope chord that goes behind the frame and you put it on the nail so it hangs. You have to get it dead middle though or it tilts.
And good for you with woodwork. I was useless. Just glad I have all my fingers left.
What I mean is, how is the poster itself attached to the frame? before hanging it up
Oh ok. I wasn’t there when he did it, but looks like a specialist glue.
ahh figures, yeah I tried to use spray glue to put a bill hicks poster on cardboard or thin wood, whatever it was. Ended up with bubbles everywhere, which sucked cos I loved the poster!!
Sounds like it cost you to get those done. Well worth it though, they look fantastic framed. I’m gonna search around locally for a similar place =)
BTW I voted for Vertigo, that poster just flat out kicks arse
Love the Totoro one! These are all beautifully designed.
Thanks. You can’t just buy these anywhere so got them as soon as I saw them.
These are brilliant. I really like the simplicity of the Rocky one. Great stuff.
Thanks. I just had to get it. I’ve been to Philadelphia and done the Rocky stairs. Philadelphia really does have some great art. Some cool films made there too.
Me too! I was knackered, Sly would’ve been ashamed.
I love the Tortoro one. We don’t have any film posters, which is actually surprising as our decor is quite eclectic. We have a couple of music ones, some maps and some vintage adverts. Maybe we need to add a movie one or two.
I think the Totoro one helps if you’ve seen it or know what the film is about. Sounds like you have a pretty neatly decorated place. I have this one in a frame by my bed https://alexraphael.wordpress.com/2014/03/28/travel-snapshot-name-meanings/
I can hear the music 🙂
Totoro forever! 🙂 been to Japan 4 times…
Wow. Which parts? I’ve never been close.

No film posters but I do love them. Talking of film have you seen The Wrong Missy if you’re feeling glum watch it, so funny.
That’s great 🙂 And I’ll keep an eye out for it.
