I saw some guy on Laurent Durieux's FB page trying to make the same argument. That movie prints/posters aren't valid forms of art because they're ripping off already created art (the movie). Pretty daft.

Thank you for your valuable insight. You obviously have your finger on the pulse of the print community and are a valuable asset to us all. I look forward to more of your astute observations.

But movie prints inspire emotions in oneself and thus create a euphoric sense of amazement/curiosity/excitement/confusion/inspiration and an individualized experience that is unique to the viewer. Kind of the definition of art if I'm not mistaken. I mean movies are just recorded plays, that recycle themes used since time immemorial, so all movies are stolen works of others creative genius? I guess all of this can be summarized in a single phrase:

Simpsons did it, Simpsons did it.

It's Olly. If we're lucky we'll get an update about 10 minutes before he sells them.

I keep hearing that the printing quality on these was not up to standard but can't seem to find what types of issues are present from reading through the comments. Any owners care to weight in?

Nah, it's not that serious. There are a few little white dots on the print. They may have been part of the design as they appear to be on every print. Print looks great.
