My Top 20 Posters of the Last Decade: Part Two

Okay, it’s time to share my next five favorite posters. Enjoy!

15. Mr. Knight Gets a Poster

I love a good character poster and this one blew my mind. I’m still kind of in shock that we’re actually getting the Mr. Knight persona in Moon Knight. I barely know anything about the character but I do love his outfit and yes, Marvel Studios has brought it to life. I’m so excited.

14. The Beginning of Doctor Strange

The Doctor Strange movies have always had some of the best posters and this one, of course, is no exception. The colors, the fact that you can still see Cumberbatch’s face through his fingers, and the iconic window of the Sanctum Sanctorum acting as a backdrop is just the perfect layout for this remarkable poster. Marvel Studios really did cast the PERFECT person to play Doctor Strange.

13. Marc Spector is the Moon Knight

Simple yet brilliant, this poster’s supernatural vibe lets us know that this show will be entirely different than anything we’ve seen in the MCU before and that alone is worth getting excited about.

12. The Legacy of the Jedi

When this teaser poster first came out I remember staring at it for days for any clues it could provide about the film. It was a fascinatingly bold poster with so much thought put into it.

Its obvious connection to the poster forĀ A New HopeĀ made one realize that Rey was truly the next hope for a new generation of Jedi. Her lightsaber, changing from blue to purple to red made me wonder if this poster was hinting toward her turn to the dark side. Luke Skywalker didn’t exactly look benevolent, Kylo Ren would be an important figure in Rey’s story, and the striking red color made me instantly think of the Sith.

It was a lot to process but beyond all of the movie implications the poster was signaling, it’s also a beautiful poster as well.

11. The Avengers Have Assembled

Avengers: Infinity War was one heck of a movie and this poster made it very clear that we would get to see roughly every MCU superhero take a stand against one of the greatest movie villains of all time, Thanos. How the artists managed to fit every single character onto this poster without it ever feeling overstuffed is impressive enough as it is, and then the poster’s actually gorgeous too?!

When I first saw it my mind was blown and even now I still love to look at it.

So those are the next five posters to make my list. Now we’re about to get into my top 10 and I am very excited to share them with you.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a tremendous day.

My In-Depth Review of ‘The Batman’

Okay, I’ve had some time to ruminate on my thoughts about this standout Batman flick that has truly become one of the best comic book movies to date. My review yesterday was an initial reaction type of post but today I’m here to share with you my thoughts on the pros and cons of the actual storyline.

So, of course, that means there will be MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD so if you haven’t seen the movie I highly recommend you stop reading now. Okay, thanks for heeding my warning. Now let’s talk about this movie.

(This is a longread.)

Before watching the film I had heard all of this talk that the film’s first twenty minutes were some of the best in CBM (comic book movie) history. They weren’t wrong.

The very disturbing opening scene is straight out of Halloween. Introducing us to The Riddler in this fashion was a great way to let you know what type of this movie is going to be. And yes, the villain was about to be the scariest antagonist in a Batman movie since The Dark Knight.

I’m glad I saw this movie at my current age (23-years-old) and not when I was younger because this film would’ve definitely traumatized me in some areas.
