We've gone from fine art to floating heads. Have you ever wondered what happened to great movie posters?

Well, the guy over at GoodBadFlicks sure does.

And the cool thing is that he's created a rather awesome, illuminating and sometimes funny video essay that looks at today's movie posters versus those from the "good ol' days" (mostly from the '80s and '90s), arguing that Hollywood has gotten a bit lazy in its movie poster endeavors.

Our fave? The “giant floating head posters” -- especially those in the, erm, crotch area, as evidenced by Exhibit A above. Always a winner.

Have a look:

Do you guys agree that today’s movie posters are filled with tired cliches and are just plain awful? Do you have any "so bad they’re so good" faves or simply some godawful ones you’d like to share? What's your favorite movie poster of all time? Let us know!
