The Year's Movie Posters: The Good, the Bad, and the Hilarious

The Year's Movie Posters: The Good, the Bad, and the Hilarious

Each year, the Razzie Awards come along to remind us of all the crappy movies and performances that hit theaters that year. The Razzies are fun and all but I've stumbled upon some awards that are even more fun: the Internet Movie Poster Awards. Posters can be an exciting first hint at a movie you're looking forward to — or they can be completely baffling. Sometimes they're funny or creepy, and sometimes they just fail to inspire.

Click around the IMP Awards site, which includes categories like Worst Movie Poster, Best Movie Poster, Funniest Poster, etc. Pictured above are three nominations for the worst posters of the year and I have to say I totally agree. Why is Angelina's face so huge? Uma Thurman is "in a toss up" between two men? And The Hottie and the Nottie poster is just . . . terrifying.

To see a few of the other posters nominated for Internet Movie Poster Awards,


One of the posters in the funniest category is this one from Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay, and I agree that it is very funny. Who can argue with unicorns and Neil Patrick Harris? Nobody, that's who.

This poster for The Dark Knight is one of the nominees for the year's best poster. It's still so creepy (and sad) to see this representation of the chilling character Heath Ledger portrayed.

Best Funny Tagline
This category is a really good one! You should check out all the nominees but this Hamlet 2 tagline is the one that gave me the biggest case of LOLs: "One high school drama teacher is about to make a huge number 2." Ah, poop humor. Fun times.
