TWELVE DAYS OF CINE-MAS: EIGHT WONDROUS ONE-SHEETS

TWELVE DAYS OF CINE-MAS
A traditional festive countdown, reflecting upon my 2016 movie-watching moments...

EIGHT WONDROUS ONE-SHEETS
Much was made in 2016 that the elegance and artistry of the great movie posters of yesteryear is dead and gone. Like the movies they spruik, key-art imagery is focus group tested and voted on in LA boardrooms with scant regard for aesthetics. Of course, there are the exceptions…(and, yes, the Star Trek Beyond quad art is not a one-sheet, but it is beautiful, so consider it a bonus.)
