Sometimes the marketing of a movie becomes just as iconic as the movie itself.  Fonts are a big part of the branding. Hell I could have posted my grocery list for the week in the above font, and besides thinking “Wow this dude is gonna have a heart attack in 5 years,” you would of course know that it was the Back to the Future font.  So after seeing this font posted by the BTTF Facebook page (yeah I really love that movie), I got to thinking what are the best movie fonts out there? Well don’t worry because I’ve done the legwork for you and included links to download them!  (WARNING: Do not use these fonts to type your master’s thesis with…I learned that lesson the hard way.)  (more…)

“You understand, if we don’t find a stiff out here, we leave a fresh one?”

Miller’s Crossing was the Coen Brothers third feature length film, dating from 1990. While still in a fairly early stage in their careers, Miller’s Crossing shows off the confident flair that had been acquired from the critical hits of Blood Simple and Raising Arizona. It tells the story of Tom Reagan (Gabriel Byrne) as he flicks between to Prohibition-era gangsters and the crooked bookie, Bernie Bernbaum, played by the fantastic John Turturro. Miller’s Crossing is told at its own pace, and never struggles to do anything else apart from that.

“I love you, brother.”

Tetro is Francis Ford Coppola’s first movie since The Conversation that he has written himself. It tells a story of a young eighteen year old who has come to visit his brother after he has been absent for a long time. Set in Buenos Aries, the film is mostly in a striking black and white, which manages to perfectly set the tone for the film. It is a beautifully shot film, that could have easily could have come from Coppola while he was in his pomp in the 70s, it is that good. It deals with issues close to Coppola, and something he perfected in The Godfather films, the tangled web of families. Tetro should not be missed. (more…)
