    Most Misrepresentative Movie Posters Ever!

    I dunno if this technically counts as photography or not but figured it would fit here well, just cause.

    So yeah, sometimes movie posters represent the movie perfectly. Other times they do not. Let's focus on the not.

    Case in point? The Turkish poster for Peckinpah's Bring Me The Head Of Alfredo Garcia (I'm proud to own one of these, wish I had the wall space to display it!).

    You never know - the Turkish cut could feature a scene like that.
    Now everyone can have a complete KRULL lifestyle.

    Holy crap, that IS a misrepresentation of the film.

    Plus, the dude standing over the decapitated body looks NOTHING like Warren Oates. Or Kris Kristofferson.

    False advertising. Just sayin'.

    We're back? This is not the sequel.



    Where are the Dobermans and nazi pedophiles? Ubi sunt, Danny Devito, ubi sunt? Still, hold on tight does sound like good advice when jacking a bear.
