I like the Mondo stuff because it reminds me of the older film posters. My two favorite 1-sheet artists were Saul Bass & Drew Struzan.
Olly Moss fills my Bass niche now & Stout does very Struzan-like compositions.
The only downside (for me anyway; I know some people really enjoy it) is the waiting for drops, difficulty getting a print, aftermarket ridiculousness, etc.

I was the one who posted the previous links to NSFGE, which is the 'local pub' of movie poster community. Brie's forum is a little more poster focused, particularly newer release posters.pewter14 wrote:I was specifically aiming at the alamo movie screen prints, and how they sit with the movie lobby poster collector.

There was a brief discussion on it a while back, and there was a thread on another forum that was linked (it discussed alamo releases) not sure it was the same forum though.
I echo his sentiment regarding actual screenings being the dividing line. I have no purchasing interest what-so-ever in the Star Wars/Star Trek print series, although I look forward to seeing what the artists come up with.
You should read some of the 'art print' vs 'packaging' arguments on the hot dog wrapper collector boards. Brutal.Codeblue wrote:The 'gigposter' vs 'art print' debate exists in the movie poster world as well.
A Mondo version of The Saint would be badass. Olly Moss would be a good fit, doing the pocket knife or something similar. Top Gun by Rhys Cooper would be interesting, or someone else with that very sketchy style. Deep down though I want Deep Blue Sea by Aaron Horkey lol.DaleCooper wrote:Wonder when the next Mondo print will go onsale. Hope it's that Val Kilmer one..
