Thread: Why you shouldn't believe everything you see on movie posters

    Why you shouldn't believe everything you see on movie posters

    Interesting piece here from the Guardian's film critic on dishonesty in film advertising. In his case, his 2 star rating for the new Kray brothers movie, Legend, was made to look like a 4 star rating on the poster (look between the heads)

    Yes, it's deceiving; but to whoever designed it.
    I can just hear the remit: Well, we can't not include it, so how can we fit it in so as not to bring down the other ratings ?

    PS. The thread title is too long.... It should read: Why you shouldn't believe everything you see.
    Some people have opinions - The rest of us have taste.
