The awesomeness of minimalist movie posters. And the Netflix Relief Fund: A worthy cause

This was a wonderful find on Twitter this week. A graphic artist named Matt Owen decided to reduce some classic movies to minimalist art posters. The results (two of my favorites are above) are fantastic.
I love that in this age where there’s so much fancy whiz-bang technology and graphics to make everything seem exciting and complex, Owen did something as simple as this and it looks so cool.
Check out the rest of his fabulous work here. I think the “The Breakfast Club” and “The Usual Suspects” are particularly brilliant.

**So there was quite a kerfuffle last week when Netflix decided to raise prices on DVD rentals and live streaming. Personally, I don’t see why people had their panties in such a bunch. It’s still pretty cheap to use Netflix, and you can’t beat their selection.
And the price-raising did give us this hilarious video, starring Jason Alexander, urging us to donate to the Netflix Relief Fund. Such a worthy cause.
