Prepare to Lose Hours On a New Movie Poster Site

Prepare to Lose Hours On a New Movie Poster Site (photo)

Posted by on

See this is why I can’t have nice things. I hear about a cool new site like Film on Paper, this massive movie poster archive, and then I lose hours and hours of my life pouring over it. Ah it but it’s worth it. You hear that, missed deadlines and wife who claims I don’t talk to her anymore! It’s worth it!!!

It actually kind of is with a website this awesome. It’s the insanely detailed labor of love of London-based designer and movie poster fanatic Eddie Shannon, who spent two years of his life cataloguing his personal collection of almost 1500 posters. Ostensibly he created the site so he could enjoy the artwork without having to handle (and potentially damage) the pieces. But the upside for us is he put the whole thing online for anyone to enjoy and peruse. And peruse, and peruse, and peruse.

Since the site is just one person’s collection, it is dictated by the scope of his purchases and the whims of his taste. This not the IMDb of movie posters. But because the site was built by a designer it looks great and it’s easy to use. Plus, because Shannon is British, he’s got lots of awesome UK quad posters that we never get to see here in the United States, like this or this or this (or especially this). I also love seeing striking art for movies I’ve never heard of. What the heck is “Follow Me?” Who knows, but it has one of the most beautiful posters I’ve ever seen. And then of course you get into the great Japanese posters like this one for “The Blues Brothers” in which Jake and Ellwood HAVE NO HEADS. Remember that scene in “The Blues Brothers?” Where Jake and Elwood dance on crashed cars without their heads? Hmph. I guess someone needs to buy the extended director’s cut then.

It’s a really great site. Plus it looks like Shannon doesn’t have the one cool poster in my own personal collection — this French “Big Trouble in Little China” piece — which makes me feel a little bit better about myself. Definitely check it out. Just keep your eye on the clock while you’re browsing so time doesn’t slip away on you too much.

The Best Of The Last

Portlandia Goes Out With A Bang

Posted by on

The end is near. In mere days Portlandia wraps up its final season, and oh what a season it’s been. Lucky for you, you can watch the entire season right now right here and on the IFC app, including this free episode courtesy of Subaru.

But now, let’s take a moment to look back at some of the new classics Fred and Carrie have so thoughtfully bestowed upon us. (We’ll be looking back through tear-blurred eyes, but you do you.)

Couples Dinner

It’s not that being single sucks, it’s that you suck if you’re single.

Cancel it!

A sketch for anyone who has cancelled more appointments than they’ve kept. Which is everyone.

Forgotten America

This one’s a “Serial” killer…everything both right and wrong about true crime podcasts.

Wedding Planners

The only bad wedding is a boring wedding.

Disaster Hut

It’s only the end of the world if your doomsday kit doesn’t include rosé.

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
