Help Identifying a Font

I want to utilize this font face for something but I can't figure out what one it is. Any help?

It's close but I don't think that's it. Look at the capital A in the Die Hard sentence, and how the letters in general seem to be a little more squat. The lowercase g is completely wrong.

Ah good ole dvdcoverart.com, sucks that MattD got sued/threatened and had to shut that place down. Look at all the damn coversites on the net now, and none of them are getting touched

Probably because pirates don't burn media anymore. No need for a case for a digital file.

Re: Help Identifying a Font

Utilize? You want to "utilize" a font?

What the hell are you doing?

Yes. I would like to make practical and effective use of this particular font for a project I'm working on.

Hurme Geometric Sans 2 Bold or Simplo Heavy, but the weight is tweaked a bit, maybe with an added outline. Or perhaps Simplo Black.

My graphic designer friend suggests it's birch std but says it's too small to be certain.

As for this one my friend says it is custom, but that rams black "is a close approximation."

Re: Help Identifying a Font

It's Rockwell Condensed.

I'm very disappointed in Otter for only telling OP the answer once or twice... in the old days, we'd have 74 answers, of which half were correct, 25% were wrong, and 33% would tell the OP to pee in her butt.

Memories.

No, look at the "g" in Los Angeles in the OP and look at the "g" in E Honda's pic. Not even close.

The Bruce Willis movie in the font example sounds really interesting but I can't figure out what one it is. Any help?

That is "using" a font.

"Utilize" indeed, all these people who think using extra syllables makes them sound smart.
