Default Battle of The Movie Posters

I started one of these a couple years ago, and how I'm rebooting it! Forget the whole, "Don't judge anything by it's cover" because that's exactly what you're supposed to do here!

Round One: Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull VS Starwars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith

Good thread.
That's a tough one because I dislike both movies. Sorry, I guess it's a tie for me on this one. I'll try to do better next time

Sorry for the long update, I just want a certain amount of votes before starting the next session. Keep them coming!

I'll go for KOTCS, purely because the way Vader bleeds into the border always bothered me on the ROTS poster.

You have to shoose the poster you prefer, not the movie you prefer.
There could be an exelent film with a bad poster and a terrible film with a good poster and then the terrible movie would get more votes because of the poster, not because of the story.

They look to be about the same to me. I'm voting ROTS though because the overhead of Darth looks really cool.

Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith Wins.

Keep in mind, as many have said, this is a competition based on the look of the poster, not the movie. A crap movie can have a great poster, and a masterpiece could have a crappy poster. This is strictly based on the poster!

Round 2: Cloverfield VS District 9

Like the mysterious vibe the poster has.

Probably Cloverfield, even though the Statue of Liberty has been used a lot in movie imagery.

Cloverfield

The Statue of Liberty partially destroyed, get's my attention more than a ship in the sky above a city.

Both good but The Exorcist one is more intriguing.

Both great, but I agree, The Exorcist; that iconography is stronger.
