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:

Image

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.

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.

I like how they lay white strips everywhere, including his chin, to invoke the sense of birdshit.

"Guys being Guys"???

:roll:

Well, I would hope they would have just said - "These are the Grab 'em by the Pussy titles our POTUS loves".

You would think in the current climate of everyone being a pervert they would shy away. Kudos, I guess.

I looked it up, and that's actually a collection from 2014. Doesn't make it any less ugly (both from a design standpoint and a moral one), but still.

It is not a horrible cover, but it seems more like a working idea copy than a finished product.

I do like the idea, though. There should be dark blood drips and blots on the ground and I might turn him ever-so-slightly and put the Christmas wrapping tape on his back/gun to give a little color pop. But overall, not a horrendous idea.

Oh yeah, and add the posters of the sexy girls behind him.

The posters even had a queue in the movie score.

Maybe even include the quote Chris pointed out.

I would absolutely love a Michelle Williams/Christopher Plummer remake of The Thing with Two Heads.

I wish Criterion would jump on the 4K bandwagon and release Days Of Heaven already. Just that one - they can close up shop after that.
