Why Are Movie Posters So Terrible Now? A Video Retrospective.

Remember when album covers weren't just the singer's face all the time?

YouTuber GoodBadFlicks took a look at contemporary movie posters and was like, “Ugh, these are the worst.” He’s not wrong; in this look back at the history of movie-marketing artwork, it’s completely apparent that poster art has recently become lazy, boring, and generally awful. Watch the video to see just how dire things have gotten for posters.

There’s also a special mention to video game covers and album art. Those are terrible now, too.
