Valkyrie Poster

Valkyrie Poster

Every once in a while I come across a poster which is by itself nice, but that doesn’t seem to completely fit the movie. This is one of those cases.

Which is to say that I like the poster. It’s not brilliant, but it does contain some creativity, style and smart use of colors. Much, much better than a poster with a giant Tom Cruise head. Even if the giant head was trying to eat Hitler.

But isn’t Valkyrie supposed to be a very serious, somewhat somber historic drama about an obviously failed plot? Considering that the poster seems considerably hip and light, something that might go better with a more lightweight caper like the Ocean’s film, or with a more action oriented movie like X-Men.

Then again maybe I’m just showing my prejudices. Maybe Valkyrie is more exciting and dynamic than I’m expecting. And as Glenn points out in comments, the posters for some of the awards season movies have been really, really bad, so I probably shouldn’t be complaining about a poster that I actually enjoy looking at.

  1. Does tom cruise have enough of his image back to deserve big highlighted solo billing?

    It’s a movie by bryan singer so I’m going to see it anyways.

  2. Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

  4. I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)
