I've gathered some very specific types of portrait movie posters. Hope you all like it. 

Here are my first four poll suggestions. If they go well, I'll suggest more of these in the future. 


==================================================


==================================================


==================================================



Suggestions are open!

Requirements:

1. Solo Portrait:
- The poster must display only one person.
- They must not be holding anything.
- The background must be simple. (No action sequences in the background.)
-
The person shouldn't be engaged in any type of action. (Expressions are acceptable.)

2. Solo Portrait - Part II: (same rules as Part I)
The poster must be focused (zoomed) on the face or it must display only the face (not body).

3. One Eye Portrait: (same rules as Part I)
- Only a half-face must be seen. (Face covered by shadows is not acceptable.)
4. Duo Portraits:- Same rules as Solo Portraits: Part I except only two men should be seen.Note:- Exceptions can be made.- The poster must NOT have any watermark except the title.

I would have nothing against the suggestion itself, but I noticed that you often refer to "man" or "men", in some context, it is obvious that it refers to the "Homo Sapiens", but for your poll, I would have privileged the use of "character" or "protagonist" or "person".

Example of what I'm talking about:


"Which of these portrait movie posters displaying only one man character is your favorite?"

"Which of these portrait movie posters displaying only two men character is your favorite?"

I will try to submit a version without the credits.

Yeah, I wanted to change that too. I'll modify that soon.

Btw don't bother. Dunkirk poster is not eligible.

Yep, I noticed. I made it an exception.

I can also make exceptions if someone is holding hands or some other person. For e.g., the Liar Liar and Focus poster.

So feel free to suggest anything you see appropriate, we can discuss it here :)

Note: I might remove the Notebook and Warrior posters from Duo-Portraits list.

I came across this too while making the list.

If you zoom in on the butterfly's head you can see a face of a human and a skull. (I can explain more if you want)

But I'd like to get more feedback about this one.

Well, I thought it shouldn't be a problem.



But no worries, I changed it. :)

BONAFIDE BOSS, to be honest, that second meaning of "man" is dated. 

The same way I recently developed a huge disdain for the word "husband", when I discovered it's orginally a farming term and the way one "husbands" a spouse, one might also husband a cow and several chicken. Regardless of one's opinion about animal rights (which is a hard question on its own), it's just so derogatory and disrespectful in it's root that I mostly try to avoid that word nowadays...

Thanks Dan. (I'm gender-confused enough as it is! "How come I always get to be the girl?!")  >.<

I like the full-frontal Angelina/Maleficent. Uh, I mean the non-profile portrait, in case that  word use was a faux pas. I also like Brando in a tux, cos I wanna wrap a checkered tablecloth-sized napkin round his neck and serve him spaghetti.

Nothing sexier than a gangster in a tux scarfing down spaghetti with a huge checkered cloth napking round their neck! :-D "Dig in!"  (I"m sorry I'm on a diet and I'm starving! I eat carbs vicariously through my movie fantasies.)

I really like the Solo Portraits. 'Tough choice because there are so many good ones. My favorite may be from 'Nebraska' or from 'Steve Jobs,' although Jackie is really great...  : )

I suggest pluralizing "Portrait" in the title: Posters: Solo Portraits

This is the only poll where I don't have any most favorite choice, I randomly selected good looking posters.

I shouldn't have added The Godfather, it's f**king overrated. But I also couldn't ignore it since it's my most favorite movie.

However, I voted for The (first) Darkest Hour poster.

Edit: Man, I wish there was a multiple-choice system.

Also, change the title to "1 Live Poll & 3 Poll Suggestions: Posters — Various Portraits [ 1/4 Live ]"

Bonafide,

I changed this back to idea.

This was my mistake. Peter and I have admin rights on GS. Ruby and Jess do not have admin rights on GS. Not all champions have admin rights.

I was not gonna add Logan because of his claws but I can make an exception for it.

Les Miserables' poster is already in part 1.

I'll add Logan and Raging Bull's posters soon.

Thanks for suggesting.
