Movie and a Poster 2018 #19: Bad Samaritan.

Movie and a Poster 2018 #19: Bad Samaritan.
I really like David Tennent. I want to see him in a ton of awesome movies. This probably isn't one of them unfortunately. He's great in it, very scary character but the story overall is oddly constructed and paced. I think this could have been super creepy but something must have been lost in the editing.
It's almost two hours and feels very much that long.
On the plus side, there are two moments where he absolutely channels his inner Doctor Who, almost worth it.
There's a lot of horse references in the movie so that's the reason behind the poster image.

Movie and a Poster 2018 #18: Isle of Dogs.

Movie and a Poster 2018 #18: Isle Of Dogs. Really liked it. 

There are so many creative choices made in this movie that don't underestimate the audience. Wes Anderson has got such a strong sense of storytelling that comes through whether it's live action or animation. I love that. 

I haven't seem Fantastic Mr. Fox in a while so hard to say if I like Isle of Dogs more than that one. I can say if you did like FMF, you should definitely like this one.

I thought about doing the water in more orangish sunset colors. It didn't seem to work so I stuck with blues.

Movie and a Poster 2018 #17:Avengers Infinity War

Movie and a Poster 2018 #17:Avengers Infinity War

I never thought they'd be able to pull it off, but they really nailed it with this one. So many characters and everyone feels like they get their moment. Could they have expanded on some of the heroes, of course but it's really Thanos' story, which I was cool with.

Without spoiling it, I thought what they did with the first ten minutes brilliantly sets up the rest of the movie with an "all bets are off, anything goes" sense. Really looking forward to how the next one wraps all this up.

Because there's so much going on in the movie I decided to go with a super simple icon for the poster.
