Movie Poster Hell

I guess this is the new thing . . .

So she’s objectified? A mannequin? Granted no more humanity than a coat rack?

He’s a dick?

No idea. Looks like a Bat-Girl poster.

Taking the month of April off to think of a caption . . .

Trunk Release

The emergency trunk release in a rental car I had recently.  Simple, elegant, puts the fun back into kidnapping.

That’s not really fair.  Every time I see this, I get a little vicarious thrill for the stick-person making their escape.  Well done.


Pop — I’m outta here!

Netflix xilfteN

There has got to be a reason for this.

xilften03Yes, they are in 2 different districts, but surely it would be more efficient to have them all open on the same side.  Soon, some MBA will see that .05 seconds can be trimmed off the handling time and ensure carpal tunnel for everyone.

Or maybe having x% of the envelopes open on the opposite side actually helps prevent carpal tunnel.  Now that’s a corporate idea that would impress me.

All 3 of These Things Are Not Like the Others

Trolling for movies at Walmart this morning, and I came across this 3-pack in the $5 bin.  What could possibly be the theme tying these DVDs together?  And cellophane is not a theme.

  • The Producers – Musical Comedy
  • Lincoln – Not Spielberg’s Lincoln, because Spielberg
  • White Noise – I assume the Michael Keaton horror joint, because Michael Keaton


Another 3-pack had a different Civil War title on the bottom, so clearly it is  the designated historical slot for this cinema lunchable.

Lousy picture as I didn’t want to be accused of show-rooming. For $5 DVDs.
