JACKIE BROWN MEGA COOL POSTER

Published at: Nov. 6, 1997, midnight CST by staff

Now, I know I showed you the Jackie Brown poster right? Well SCREW that one. That was lame. That was pitiful. What is real cool, what only Quentin would do, is this poster.

Now for those of you that don't know squat about movie posters, in a historical way, I'll tell you exactly why that rocks. THAT IS A 1970's exploitation poster. In the style of Foxy Brown, Lady Cocoa, Hell Up In Harlem. Those washed out colors, the violence, the tag lines. This is what "cool" is about. That funky feeling that only a poster can do. If you see this poster, while walking into the theater, turn back your brain clock, and imagine the crappy theater you SHOULD be seeing this one in. The curtains on the walls should be stained. The floor should be sticky (from spilled drinks!!! you filthy minded ...). The popcorn should be drenched in choelesteral DEATH, a big ORANGE soda and a goofy look on your face. I can't wait to see this one. SOMEBODY GET ME IN TO SEE IT, I'M IN HELLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!

By the Way, there are reports of a black and white DeNiro poster that was once hanging upon a wall somewhere in San Francisco that was also for Jackie Brown. Sounds like Quentin is pulling that multiple styles of posters stuff again. GOOD! I love that.
