Miss Vicky's Loyal and Willing Slave
December 29th

On the fifth day of Christmas my true love sent to me, five gold Lord of the Rings
four calling Birds
three French Connection hens
two Ninja Turtle doves
and a partridge in a pear Tree of Life




Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring
(2001, d. Peter Jackson / Artist - Juan Esteban Rodriguez)




"Money won is twice as sweet as money earned."

On the sixth day of Christmas my true love sent to me, six Grease a-laying
five gold Lord of the Rings
four calling Birds
three French Connection hens
two Ninja Turtle doves
and a partridge in a pear Tree of Life




Grease
(1978, d. Randal Kleiser / Artist - Chloe Chapman)


I think I got away with it without anyone noticing. Ok ok so today's film was admittedly a bit of a stretch to fit in with my 12 Days of Christmas theme. I could have gone with a poster for Wild Geese but I wanted to try and only feature posters I already had saved in my big library of posters. Therefore, Grease. And while I'm aware it's not an especially popular film around here I've got to say that I really like this poster.

That's a nice poster. It reminds me a little bit of the Broadway poster for Grease. It's just a simple image of Danny combing his hair, but the Broadway poster showed him from the back.

I didn't know that it's not a popular movie around here. I know that most people around here don't like musicals, but Grease is a more modern musical with rock 'n roll music. I thought most people here would like that.

On the seventh day of Christmas my true love sent to me, seven Black Swans a-swimming
six Grease a-laying
five gold Lord of the Rings
four calling Birds
three French Connection hens
two Ninja Turtle doves
and a partridge in a pear Tree of Life




Black Swan
(2010, d. Darren Aronofsky / Artist - La Boca)




oh wow,really? he and scorsese are like the only ones i know the names of because i love his movies so much. apart from the wrestler which was meh and i have a feeling i wont like Jackie-but thats mostly because of the person its based on. You didnt like requiem for a dream,or you havent seen it? not that it matter,just wondering-it seems to be of very high on most peoples lists .



I don't like Requiem for a Dream. At all. Also didn't like The Wrestler or Noah.
I have no desire to see anything else he's done and wouldn't have seen Noah if it didn't star Russell Crowe.

January 1st

On the eighth day of Christmas my true love sent to me, eight Little Mermaids a-milking
seven Black Swans a-swimming
six Grease a-laying
five gold Lord of the Rings
four calling Birds
three French Connection hens
two Ninja Turtle doves
and a partridge in a pear Tree of Life




The Little Mermaid
(1989, d. John Musker & Ron Clements / Artist - Tom Whalen)


And as a New Years bonus we have a second poster for today. This one is just for Miss Vicky. She is going to be our President after all so I want to stay in her good graces. And I've been aware that the films of late have not been to her liking and yet she's kept repping them anyway. So sweet. So just for her we also have...

On the eighth day of Christmas my true love sent to me, Hateful Eight maids a-milking
seven Black Swans a-swimming
six Grease a-laying
five gold Lord of the Rings
four calling Birds
three French Connection hens
two Ninja Turtle doves
and a partridge in a pear Tree of Life




The Hateful Eight
(2015, d. Quentin Tarantino / Artist - Orlando Arocena)




Miss Vicky's Loyal and Willing Slave
January 2nd

Vicky should be pretty happy with today's choice as well. And just to make our future President even happier I've included both the regular and variant versions. I hope you're all singing along by the way.


On the ninth day of Christmas my true love sent to me, nine ladies Dancing With Wolves
eight Little Mermaids a-milking
seven Black Swans a-swimming
six Grease a-laying
five gold Lord of the Rings
four calling Birds
three French Connection hens
two Ninja Turtle doves
and a partridge in a pear Tree of Life





Dances With Wolves
(1990, d. Kevin Costner / Artist - Barret Chapman)




Miss Vicky's Loyal and Willing Slave
January 3rd

Today's poster is more well-known than I'd normally feature but I have always liked it. It's Nicholas Cage's face formed from bullets; an image both creepy and beautiful. Also I didn't think Vicky would like it if I went with another Lord of the Rings poster.


On the tenth day of Christmas my true love sent to me, ten Lords of War a-leaping
nine ladies Dancing With Wolves
eight Little Mermaids a-milking
seven Black Swans a-swimming
six Grease a-laying
five gold Lord of the Rings
four calling Birds
three French Connection hens
two Ninja Turtle doves
and a partridge in a pear Tree of Life




Lord of War
(2005, d. Andrew Niccol)



I always liked that poster, but I vaguely recall not being crazy about the movie. Still way better than LOTR though.

On the eleventh day of Christmas my true love sent to me, Ocean's Eleven pipers piping
ten Lords of War a-leaping

And so we come to an end. And to commemorate the end of the 12 Days of Christmas I've thrown in two options for the final day


On the twelfth day of Christmas my true love sent to me, 12 Angry Men drumming

Fun theme! Your thread is making me excited to take graphic design.
