Something Awful Grindhouse Photoshop Friday

This was on another website today and some of these are just so freaking good.

Perhaps this could have been an interesting promotion to help people "get" grindhouse movies. Either way it's funny and awesome.

EDIT: Hmm. It won't let me post a link. Well, the thread title tells you what it is, I guess you can go check it out.

This was Something Awful's best Photoshop Friday in quite a long time.

The Forrest Gump, The Sixth Sense, A Time To Kill, Beetlejuice, and a few other posters were really top notch.

Some of those are pretty funny.

As far as the link, they don't allow you to post stuff from that website on this one, so they'll probably lock this. Glad I saw it before they do.

Is it just me or did almost none of them look like "grindhouse" trailers? Some of them were purposefully bad so they looked like DVD covers, but I didn't get the "Grindhouse" feel from a lot of them. Still great, but just as "alternate" movie posters. Last time I checked, Saul Bass wasn't "grindhouse" .

You might not want to link images. They're likely to change it to something... not nice.

There is a lot of good talent here in DVDTALK.
You would think studios would hire some of you guys to do dvd covers instead of the crap the studios put out like those big head covers.

You don't seem to understand. These weren't done by DVDTalkers, they were done at another website.

So you are saying there is no talent here in DVDTalk?

Same here, actually.

I LOVE that Who Framed Roger Rabbit job on Page 9.

Relative to most of the people over at SA, yeah, DVDTalk doesn't quite live up in the talent/humor/intelect department. But it's all good, because you guys have a lot of good stuff to say too.

If you're going to accuse people on this board of being dumber than those on another, you may want to run a spell check. I'm just saying.

caiman, this type of comment is completely unreasonable. Expect administrative action on your account.
