Also, since there is no awesome cover art thread, I just want this to be noticed.

Why not create such a thread then?

I can no longer call myself a Star Wars fan. I’m sick of the same played-out aesthetics/tropes being remixed/regurgitated time-&-time again; I’m sick of the deteriorating characterization/worldbuilding which have been in play since 1983; I’m sick of the toxic fanboys from all ideological camps; I’m sick of the capitalist pigs who refuse to allow this IP into the public domain where it rightly belongs. So while I may still admire the first two films for their technical achievements and characters, I’m no longer capable of enjoying Star Wars in any capacity due to the reasons delineated above.

I find that answer vague and unconvincing. Why don’t you knock it off with them negative waves?
Why don’t you dig how beautiful it is out here? And say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

Not as awesome as the movie it represents.

The first Halloween poster is so clever and just artistic perfection. However I do not get Halloween II poster at all, for me it doesn’t make any sense. I mean, the image is okay but compared to the first one it lacks all the cleverness which it still tries to somehow have.

And in the time of greatest despair, there shall come a savior, and he shall be known as the Son of the Suns.

Though I like the poster for Halloween II, it certainly doesn’t use imagery that screams “Michael Myers movie!” to me.

Neither does the Halloween III poster, for that matter 😛

Maybe they just based it on the skull inside the pumpkin gag in the title sequence?

It looks cool so I put it in this thread.
