ABOUT GUELYLAND

"One of the smallest , independent kingdoms in the ciberuniverse. Nothing fancy. Population? Just me, myself and my jaguars, my movies and my books (and, at this very moment, YOU). Hided and secret like Skull Island or Opar, the ancients in Guelyland use to read the scrools of a minor god called Voor-Hes.
Most of the treasures of Guelyland are made of paper, plastic and vinyl.Guelyland dreams with expanding in deep more then in surface. The music of Nik Kershaw has been heard here. There are apes, lots of apes in Guelyland. Woody Allen and Bob Hope visit it quite often. Here we love books (the Kingdoms Library is both celebrated and secret) Here we are atheists but very tolerant and think of god a bit too often and much. Guelyland is, the stuff my dreams are made of..."

MOVIE POSTERS FROM POLAND

There is obviously something different with movie posters from Poland. They are more artistic, crude, personal, maybe expressionist and fascinating. They come from a totally different school or way to see the movies. Here are some of my favorite movies and the way they've been sold in Poland.

The Neverending Story(1984)


Breakfast At Tiffany's(1961)


Alien(1979)


Amelie (2001)


Pulp Fiction (1994)


Star Wars(1977)



Greystoke (1984)



Clockwork Orange(1971)



Blade Runner(1982)



Labyrinth (1986)



Casablanca (1942)



The Tin Drum(1979)



One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest(1975)



Force Ten of Navarrone(1978)



Raiders Of The Lost Ark(1981)



Cabaret(1972)



Indiana Jones And The Temple Of Doom(1984)

Very cool. I knew the Poles brewed great beer, but wasn't aware of their movie poster prowess.

Había visto algunos posters polacos.. y pensaba/pienso que son extraordinarios... Cuando en Europa Occidental y América los posters se limitan a ser un bonito retrato fotográfico de el/los protagonistas, los artistas polacos aún creen que un poster debe condensar en una imagen lo que és la película, y lo hacen de manera magnífica... A ver si aprenden de ellos en occidente y recuperan el arte del poster.

A morte os cebollos cocidos!! A morte o photoshop!!

It's such a cool tradition. Especially in these lazy "photoshop times".I think that is maybe more profitable and easy to place the mug of Cruise in a poster then trusting in the imagination of a good artist. Saul Bass, Drew Struzan and many very good other artists made of the movie poster an art, and art comes in many different ways most of them more interesting then pasting the face of an actor with an explotion behind. And these polish posters are nice in the way that we can "read" or almost pitch the movie in one image. Muy buenos! Si!!
