Someone is wrong on the Internet.

I think the most annoying internet micro-trend this year has been graphic designers making "new" posters for old movies. "Oh look, I made a poster for a blockbuster scifi movie but I made it 'minimal' and/or look like it starred Steve McQueen! Aren't I precious?" No. You're a talentless hack. Make something new.

Also, stop posting things with the comment, "Presented without comment". That is a comment, you smirking illiterate! It's just passive-voice and cowardly. Take a stand.

    Apropos of nothing: did you tweak your css to make your posts appear in white text to make them stand out more, or did that result from a WordPress update breaking your css?

    Some of the rap song covers are pretty fun to sing along to, though.

    I especially hate it when they base the poster on things that are basically unrecognisable unless you're familiar with the film. What good is a movie poster if you have to have seen the movie already to understand it?

    On the other hand, some would work just fine as Criterion covers.

    I dunno, there are a lot of annoying internet micro-trends to choose from, and this one seems relatively tame.
