With Photobucket gone, give me some good, free image hosting options.

imgur.com

Not only can your quickly resize and crop images, it even creates the code for this forum to copy and paste a perfect link:

If that's too complicated, there's:

and

Chris - where on imgur is the resizing function, it's my only problem with imgur, as I never figured that out.

When you upload one image, or multiple images, there's a pull-down menu in the top right corner:

Roll your mouse over it, select Edit Image, and you are brought to a window that lets you crop and resize. Just change the values in the top right corner, hit Save, and you're done:

Some movies are being reissued with moviebuxxx to hype the release of Ready Player One.

It would have been cool, if the arcade machine designs were unique to each movie (and actually based on real machines, unlike this ultra generic 2 player layout that never existed in the 80s).

Definitely need an art director such as yourself. But most everyone in the DVD/BluRay cover box artwork business seems to be dialing in from the "fuck this shit" life zone.

Well, that's because they use interns, and pirated copies of Photoshop CS5.

For such slick-looking movies (even the bad ones), could they picked a worse cover artist?

The last one wasn't slick looking. On par with Uwe Boll films.

I can barely remember a thing about that last one...and I watched it only a few months ago.

Why would you watch Underworld movies, especially when Resident Evil movies were also coming out at the time?

Nothing wrong with watching more action movies. The first one is decent, as is the 4th one (which has an actual plot). Besides, not like the RE series is perfect. The one after the highrise one, and the one that pretends to be a videogame (and brings back all the dead characters) are awful. Like, Expendables 3 awful. I never even saw the last one because of those two.
