Oh, I kid the good folks over on Melrose.  But tell me these two layouts weren’t switched at birth:

    I noticed this when I made the mistake of putting them next to each other on my wall. They’re on opposite walls now.

    That design has been doing the rounds for a long time.

    is it still lazy if it’s effective? i mean no one saw Trek going 70+ and the parrallel to Iron Man isnt that far off in that it’s pretty much this summers equivalent.

    I know that the Star Wars posters (and others) have been using this epic/painterly thing, but I’m talking about right down to the angle of perspective, it’s the exact same design.

    Well Star Trek has been using that design since ST: Generations (1994).

    Why are both black people at the very bottom of each poster?
