Weird that they had it listed 20 minutes prior to the drop.

Yeah, what happened today? It took a good 20 seconds for the items to pop up after the drop and then if still showed available for a good 45 seconds after the variant was sold out. Bummer. Oh well, on to the next one...

Been a while....

Does "The Drop" usually just disappear for 30 seconds :lol:? Counted to 0:00 and then nothing.

I don't know. I think the Ortiz is a really cool poster. The only thing I like about this is the credits.
That was fudge, all good, prefer the Ortiz anyways !

This whole rebranding with "The Drop" is dumb as hell. Especially if nothing actually drops :lol:

Sometimes it gets weird... last week was off too... without knowing the code they're using, my guess is a lot of this is the byproduct of the number of refreshes hitting their servers at the same time makes serving up the pages correctly hit/miss.

On the variant. Reg title kinda looks like its for a Fincher movie.

I don't care for this one. Well-illustrated, but not an image I want to look at over and over. Its too on the nose and feels like too much is cramped in. Not a fan of that peach or the too-obvious onlooker. Not feeling the colors either.

Also, I thought the write-up for the poster was odd. They spend a lot of words trying really hard to convince people that Parasite is a good film. Parasite won Best Picture for a reason and its beloved around the world. We don't need the heavy-handed convincing.
Yeah but saying it won best picture for a reason means drymount all. Plenty of films that should have won or been nominated haven't. Also you have best picture winners like crash/shape/green book. I loved Parasite though fwiw.


Every single poster he does just looks like a screen grab. Do not get everyones obsession with this dude or the Mondos crowd to never ever want anything but a bunch of faces slapped on a poster.
Omit my Best Picture line and the sentiments are the same. All I'm saying is that Parasite is beloved by the film community and Mondo shouldn't have to sell it so hard or spend energy trying to convince the basic bitches.
Since when did you start thinking posters are bought by folks based on artistic merit?

I never thought I'd miss the really old site where you refreshed constantly.

Oh well. Off to Twitter and FB to watch the TruFanz™ meltdown.

Trying to buy from Mondo these days is really tedious, I'm too old for this fudge.

I'd buy a bot, but they don't have enough decent releases a year to make it worth it.

Thank the poster gods for BNG.
