Random Factoid #374

A few days ago, Aiden R of “Cut the Crap Movie Reviews” asked what movie posters lurked in my closet when he humbly declined to accept my gift of posters.  Rather than reply in a comment, here’s a list of all the fire hazards I’ve picked up from movie theaters over the past couple of years. (NOTE: This isn’t counting the giant roll of posters from the ’90s I mentioned in Random Factoid #145.)

  • Changeling
  • Australia
  • Doubt
  • Yes Man
  • Marley and Me
  • Valkyrie
  • Angels and Demons
  • The Taking of Pelham 123
  • (500) Days of Summer
  • Whip It
  • A Serious Man
  • Invictus
  • Robin Hood
  • Get Him to the Greek
  • The A-Team
  • Knight and Day
  • Salt

“Toy Story 3” and “Scott Pilgrim vs. The World” are hanging up on my wall.  Of those in the closet, “(500) Days of Summer” probably had the longest tenure on the bulletin board.

The other day, digging through my closet, I rediscovered the roll of posters that I had tucked away in the corner.  This roll consists of dozens of posters that I have accumulated over the years, most coming from the late ’90s.

Something that particularly jumped out at me was how many posters I had for the movie “Quest for Camelot.”  I had not only the main poster but also several character posters.

The main poster adorned the entrance to my room for quite some time.  But I was 6, and I decided that the poster needed some “homy touches.”

A homy touch to the six-year-old me was writing in red marker on the poster “MARSHALL’S ROOM” at the top and “DO NOT ENTER” at the bottom.
