Tarantelli’s Bastards…

We’ve heard of the great Tarantino, but what about Ezio Tarantelli? This illustrious Italian artist created a whole slew of “bella” foglios and locandinas for lots of 60s and 70s B-movies (much like Sandro Symeoni and Antonio Mos), including many spaghetti westerns — and he also had an inglorious basterd poster of his own design called Bastardo Vamos A Matar!

Remake Monday: Bastardized!

Okay, Quentin Tarantino‘s Inglorious Basterds (2009) isn’t technically a remake of the Inglorious Bastards of ’78 — other than the title and a slight plot resemblance of ex-WWII soldiers wreaking havoc on the Nazis…but, with the recent success of The Expendables, there’s no doubt that QT reinvented what surely will be a new wave of 70’s style action-adventure ensemble films.

Youssef the Man!

I’m usually not a big fan of re-imagined, hipster movie posters — but while looking up artwork on Wes Anderson, I discovered the minimalist marvels of Toronto-based designer, Ibraheem Youssef, who has garnered quite a following on SlashFilm and the like…and deservedly so!

Who’s Laughing Now?

Last week, The New York Times was writing his obituary. Today, it’s a retraction.
