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.
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.

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?
I did it on purpose because I'm just that much cooler than you.
Damn, modern browsers hate the blink tag.
Also, an IE9 bug report, if you care.
Well damn. That worked in the preview. Live and fail.
I saw the box!
It's full of stars!

If you haven't already seen a dozen halfassed examples of what I'm talking about, just consider yourself lucky and move on.

Some of the rap song covers are pretty fun to sing along to, though.
Jonathan Coulton's "Baby got Back" is a masterpiece of the form, for what it's worth.
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.
