out of AWOL.

I am really impressed with the new batch of movie posters that have been released recently. I am usually the guy that complains how things aren't like they were in the 'good ol' days', but I feel like I just enjoy saying because it makes me cool.

In reality, there's a lot of good shit now; you just need to know where to look. Future generations are going to say how our time was the 'golden era' the same way some of us view the past. Also, I'm sure that in the past there were people that thought their time was a bunch of shit. It's a theme Woody Allen  explored well in Midnight in Paris. I think the whole idealization of the past thing is strongly connected to some desire we have to recreate our childhood, where everything was sweet as fuck. Also, I think the whole idealization of the past when we weren't around is just a sort of escapist way of looking at today because we are overloaded with shit. Again, it just comes down to knowing where to look (and if you can't find it, just make it).

Anyway, here are some sweet movie posters after the page break...

There are still a lot of shit ones being made, though. It's all about strengthening your filter and developing your taste.
