Go Film Go (Postergasm)

Welcome to the first of many.

* indicates a different film of same name exists.

** remade and/or rebooted.

*** has to be awkward.

Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill exuded excellent chemistry in the big screen adaptation and sequel to long-running television series 21 Jump Street.

Earth vs. the Flying Saucers (left) and S.W.A.T. (right)
Heavy Metal
Sinbad and the Eye of the Tiger (left) and The 7th Voyage of Sinbad (right)
The New Centurions
The Wild One
Spoofing anything from Star Trek to Top Gun, 2014 follow up 22 featured a variety of fake assignments.

Why is 39 Jump Street an electronic target game?

Considering after 43, we jump to 2121, I hope 2078 missing adventures are also accounted for.


Men in Black crossover MIB 23 will apparently make them canon.


American Gigilo - The Warriors
Home Alone - The Incredible Melting Man
*House (1986) - The Blob
House of 1000 Corpses - Creature from the Black Lagoon
Julie and Julia - Attack of the Crab Monsters
Napoleon Dynamite - Dragonslayer
Sleepers - Last Tango in Paris
Demolition Man - Lethal Weapon 3
Twins - Rambo III
X-Men: Apocalypse
Romancing the Stone
 (left) and Revenge of the Nerds (right)
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice
The Mark of Zorro (left) and Excalibur (right)
**Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles - Critters
Pulp Fiction is arguably the coolest film ever made.

While Vincent and Mia dine at Jack Rabbits, we appreciate silver screen importance from the 50s.

Rock All Night (left) and Sorority Girl (right)

The Black Stallion
The Outsiders
Beverley Hills Cop II

Rambo: First Blood Part 2 (left) and *The Enforcer (1976) (right)
My favourite scene in Shane Meadows' Dead Man's Shoes is when Richard (Paddy Considine) makes Sonny 'nervous'.

Check out this excerpt.

"I'd gather them goonies and get whatever you got comin' mate... 'cause I'm gonna fucking hit you all."


Taxi Driver
Enter the Dragon
In principle, 2008 Australian revenge thriller The Horseman (not to be confused with The Horsemen), ripped it off.

Knocked Up

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas

Star Wars
In the rather great Sisters, Maura and Kate's party goes amusingly mental.

Way before that.

Out of Africa
E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial
Greg Olliver's psychological horror debut Devoured served up tension and atmosphere.

Down in the subway at midnight...

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2
Friends with Benefits
Horrible Bosses
**The Hills Have Eyes and ***The Evil Dead are joined at the hip.

Rather than Roger Kastel's painting, Wes Craven's 1977 cult classic includes a ripped promo poster of Jaws, inferring running time was immediately more terrifying.
In response, Sam Raimi inserted a portion of said film, suggesting his video nasty was even scarier than Hills.
The banter continued, as Nancy watches The Evil Dead in **A Nightmare on Elm Street.

A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master paid tribute to series creator with...
*** Fede Alvarez's 2013 reimagining was simply called Evil Dead.

It'd be rude not to show a few more.

Adjacent to iconic poster, My Name Is Bruce promotes so so 2005 hack and slash video game Evil Dead: Regeneration.
No prizes for guessing which film is showing at Aero movie theatre in Donnie Darko.
Matt (Lee Ingleby) works in a video rental store in 'Dire' (as in Danny) zomcom Doghouse.

Very hard to spot, but Jennifer's Body boasts a miniature.
Glass is empty, but can be easily refilled.
