honest movie posters

dear valentine,


wow do i wish i could claim this idea as mine! unfortunately i can't, but when i read this article i knew they were on to something. wouldn't it be amazing if hollywood was this blatantly honest? and proudly displayed their negative reviews like badges of honor?

i mean, we're all thinking it anyway. they may as well be up front about some of the piece of sh*t movies they've inflicted on the world. the article i read had some great posters, but they were missing what i consider to be some key movies in american culture (and some less than key movies, but ones i wanted to do any way). so i decided to go and create some of my own. these are completely real reviews, thanks to some quick searches at rottentomatoes.com.



























p.s. feeling creative? why not make your own movie poster and email it to us. we'll post them in an upcoming letter. you know you wanna, it'll be so fetch.

Twilight's not quite as lame as Saved by the Bell, but I still laughed. I literally watched five minutes of The Lake House. I wanted to give it a try, but could hear all of the bad reviews in my head so I turned it off. The Watchmen was too damn long.

So funny! A while back I did something rather similar on my blog. Not making bad review posters, but I did make some pretty awesome movies. Check it out

Oh man, "saved by the bell". Good times. Those crazy kids were on a magazine at my grocery store yesterday. Saved by the Bell reunion. Yeah you heard me. Ah Kelly and Zach. Good times.

Your post is hilarous!!

I love the name of your blog, knew a guy with the last name Valentine and briefly thought about marrying him so it could be my last name. Luckily enough I found my prince charming and was married on Valentines Day! (I know TMI on first visit.)

Smooches,
Sassy Chica

Too funny, yet so true. At least they'd save us freaking $9, eh? Where did you get your awesome Liz Lemon button? Oh my how I love that show.
