EW's 25 Perfect Movie Posters

Entertainment Weekly has some questionable picks for their 25 Perfect Movie Posters (since 1983), which is meant to showcase ideal examples of film art. There are many fine candidates in the pack, like the posters shown above, but "perfect" is a strong word... The Showgirls poster? Really? [via Speak Up]

Aww, dont judge the cover by the book. Let Showgirls enjoy its only remotely redeeming quality.

Haha, I suppose... though I always found the poster incredibly creepy.

Showgirls actually borrowed the idea from a Czech photographer named Tono Stanto. I think the original photograph is much more elegant, but then that may be because it's not Jessie Spano in the photo.

Wow, I had no idea! I looked up the original, and you're right -- much more elegant w/out Elizabeth B's head Photoshopped on.
