  • these are great! so clever with the retro theme!
  • O.O!
    I just visited Tavis Coburns website. He's really really really good!
  • I love how they picked up on this trend of re-designing movie posters.
    After thinking long and hard I've come to the conclusion that I like 2 things about Avatar. The night scene and this movie poster.
  • They all look so awesome, and in amazing detail. WOW. I have yet to watch Precious and Up In the Air though. So I don't know who will win. But seeing the British crowd, they would go for Up IN the Air no?
