Movie Poster of the Week – FLESH GORDON

Since our last entry in Movie Poster of the Week was Flash Gordon, somehow it seemed appropriate that the follow-up be the “adult” parody Flesh Gordon. This 1974 X-rated movie harkens back to the era when porn movies still played in theaters, and even had movie posters similar to mainstream films. Flesh Gordon was part…

BAMF’s Movie Poster Hall of Fame – FLASH GORDON

Here we have the first Movie Poster of the Week from one of my favorite poster artists, Richard Amsel. From covers of TV Guide to posters for some of my favorite movies, Amsel’s work always sticks out in my mind as the best of the best when it comes to painted movie posters. This poster…

Movie Poster of the Week – FIVE FOR HELL

The poster for Italian director Gianfranco Parolini’s Five For Hell is the embodiment of what Movie Poster of the Week is all about.  This is a terrible movie. I mean craptacular to the ultimate depths of crapitude. But the poster is awesome (it is the Italian version). Great movie posters make you want to see…

Movie Poster of the Week – EAGLE’S SHADOW

Here we have a true classic, the first major film starring Jackie Chan, Eagle’s Shadow (a.k.a. Snake in Eagle’s Shadow). Chan was a total unknown in America when this film was released, as evidenced by the incorrect spelling of his name. This was not only Chan’s first major film, it was the feature debut of…

Movie Poster of the Week – PHANTOM OF THE PARADISE

A friend of mine recently requested that I include Phantom of the Paradise in the Movie Poster Hall of Fame.

BadAzz MoFo’s celebration of the art of the movie poster (though not necessarily the movie itself). Sergio Corbucci directed some of the greatest spaghetti westerns of all time—some of which have posters that will eventually be the Movie Poster of the Week—but then he also directed some jaw-dropping turkeys. Super Fuzz is one of the…

Movie Poster of the Week – GODZILLA vs. MEGALON

I can’t lie, the poster for Godzilla vs. Megalon is terrible. I mean absolutely terrible. But here’s the deal, I saw this movie in the theaters when it came out, entered a contest, and ended up winning this poster. This was the first movie poster I ever owned (though I have no idea what happened…

Movie Poster of the Week – THE MAN FROM HONG KONG

BadAzz MoFo’s celebration of the art of the movie poster (though not necessarily the movie itself). The best movie posters of all time are those that really sell the movie, even when selling it as something a bit more than it is once it’s projected onto a screen. This poster for The Man from Hong…

Movie Poster of the Week – VIGILANTE FORCE

BadAzz MoFo’s celebration of the art of the movie poster (though not necessarily the movie itself). Up until very recently I had never even heard of Vigilante Force. I was simply looking for a usable image of the poster for Bill Lustig’s supremely classic Vigilante, when I stumbled across this work of beauty. How this…
