new book from local author on alt movie posters | win it

Pulp_Fiction__still__-_Michael_WhaiteWhen I was in college, I had two posters that donned my walls nearly all four years: Pulp Fiction and the Animal House one featuring John Belushi in his college sweatshirt. I’m pretty certain most college kids of my generation had these same posters. Not sure what posters kids would hang up today.

And it’s not just college kids. When was the last time you admired a movie poster? When was the last time you saw a poster and got excited to learn more about the movie? My guess is it’s been awhile.

Here’s where local author Matt Chojnacki comes in. In his second book, Alternative Movie Posters: Film Art from the Underground, Matt shares his love for movie posters, or rather the posters we once knew. He’s uncovered this underground world of sorts where designers and artists have taken it upon themselves to recreate their favorite movie posters. Bonnie_and_Clyde_-_Jason_MunnHe’s compiled 200 posters via 100 designers from films we all know and love, like Godfather, Caddy Shack, Teen Wolf, Big, Heathers, Goonies, Pretty in Pink, A Clockwork Orange and so many more.

It’s a wonderful book that’s receiving a lot of great press. And it’s the first book of its kind. If you’re a fan

The_Godfather_-_Mile_44of movies, great design and supporting local, this is for you – or someone on your holiday list.

If you’d like a chance to win a copy of his book, just leave a comment to this post sharing your favorite movie. I’ll pick a winner via random.org on November 27.

Disclosure: Matt is a client. I’ve been helping him with his media relations for the book.

    My favorite movie of all time is Gran Torino, I’ve always loved Mr. Eastwood, butI particularly adore everything in Gran Torino from the quotes to the story to the interactions of the characters… Truly Clint Eastwood’s Magnum Opus.

    In high school & college I was much more likely to have band posters hanging in my room but the movie that got me hooked on independent films was a quirky, overtly violent, sweetly touching, crime drama, “The Cook, the Thief, His Wife & Her Lover”. This film showed me how much more there was to discover in the movies. Peter Greenaway’s vision from the costumes, set design, to the lighting. My life was changed.

    Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found a sea shell and
    gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but
    I had to tell someone!

    error on my part by choosing the wrong part made my build

    embraced a fad diet that promised you would lose weight
    in the shortest time possible only to discover you ended up adding more weight as a result.
    The added weight will be just enough resistance to burn a few extra calories.

    Lindey’s attorney cited a warning on the sleeping pill’s label that
    read: ‘After taking Ambien, you may get up out of bed while not being
    fully awake and do an activity that you do not know you
    are doing. When the airways are blocked, the air has trouble getting into the lungs.
    Most likely your doctor is going to recommend one thing and
    one thing only: sleeping pills.
