    Some great choices, and I'm glad it's not just riddled with current entries, but I feel some of them aren't visually striking enough to be included.

    The first thing I thought of when I saw the title was Vertigo. Glad to see it came in number 3. Sad though that no SW movies made it in. The original ANH poster should be at least top 10.

    You're damn right Iacon :D 

    Shared the link with a friend, one of noted wonderful taste in all things, and she said the same thing

    MP I kind of expected to see a SW poster too, pretty iconic, but I guess that's only for us nerds eh

    Yeah, that is pretty sad. That original Star Wars poster (yeah, the one from ANH) is incredibly iconic. It's a real shame that didn't make it in there.

    The above posts pretty much sum up my thoughts. I too had expected to see the original Star Wars poster in that list. I was very happy to see vertigo and seven year itch given props.

    Yeah, that list is pretty much bullshit. No wonder Premiere's circulation is so shitty that they are having to fold.

    Too many similar posters of an actress just standing around. I mean, sure some of them are good, but there's just not enough variety going on either. And they seem to be stuck in the 30's and before and have given too short shrift to some newer entries, even if good movie posters may be few and far between today.

    I agree with all the posters Jiggles suggested, and add Fritz Lang's Metropolis in too:

    Attack of the 50-foot Woman FTW. I'd hang that directly across from my toilet. Damn, is that awesome.

    Agreed...

    I wonder if the original list was compiled by an older person. Someone who would have some sort of bias over the good old days...

    Good choices Jiggles and Lance. I totally thought they'd have The Exorcist poster on there, but alas.

    Iacon, that one was definitely a nice teaser eh

    I'd say y'all's choices are far better than the ones in the source article.
