Saturday night at the movies… in Japanese Chirashi!

Star Wars Caravan Of Courage: An Ewok Adventure. 1984. Japanese Chirashi.

Time for some more movie treats!  

Presenting: a selection of Japanese Chirashi film posters direct from the collection of TVTA!

Japanese Chirashi are printed mini-posters or flyers created to promote film releases in Japan. The size of a typical Chirashi is “B5” (approx 7 x 10 inch /18cm x 26cm). Most Chirashis are double-sided with an image from the film printed in colour on the front. Additional artwork and information printed in Japanese appears on the reverse. Chirashi posters are great fun to collect, and TVTA is pleased to add this latest batch to its growing collection

Enjoy your movie 🙂

A Tribute to TRON – Lights, Cycles, Sabers and Tanks

Hello vintage mates. Here is another cool design from good friend and fellow WP blogger FTSabersite in the latest from our joint series “TV & Film Inspired Lightsabers”. Bravo to FT, these Tron designs are just brilliant! Thanks for looking 🙂

FTSabersite

Hello Everybody and welcome to my second post of this weekend. As I mentioned in my ?Khaarnage? a saber for Alex Khaar ? Inspired by Lady Revan?s FanFiction post earlier, I am a member of a custom lightsaber forum run by Ultrasabers (a custom saber manufacturer) and I have recently been invited to post my designs on that forum too. Well, the reaction to my designs has been nothing short of phenomenal and even if there was a criticism it was always put forward with the intention to help me improve. I posted my Speeder Lightsaber design and a member commented “That hilt and flat blade would look like something out of TRON if it had all the glowing edges”. Another member “hinted” they too would like to see a TRON themed hilt, then another so I guessed it was a challenge. I took on that challenge and went to…

TVTA-BUSTER Halloween Movie Madness!

This Halloween TVTA has taken over an abandoned Blockbuster video store… Please make your video selections from the °TVTA-BUSTER HORROR SHELF° below. Choose 2 titles and get a 3rd free! Or why not take our Bloody Halloween Special: 7 titles in exchange for a litre of blood? C’mon, it’s only a teeny tiny litre of blood – the average human body contains nearly 5 litres of the stuff. It doesn’t even have to be your own blood!

Presenting: 24 Japanese horror movie posters. From originals to remakes to recently made. Many titles you’ll recognise, others perhaps not, some drift into genres like sci-fi and fantasy while retaining a suitable horror element.

Go ahead… pick your films wisely, lock the doors, close the curtains and enjoy! And don’t forget to rewind the tapes back to the beginning before returning them to the store!

°THE TVTA-BUSTER HORROR SHELF°

Oh oh, looks like someone slipped a copy of Toy Story into the Horror Section. Tut, tut, I hope that doesn’t mean some poor child somewhere is about to watch Hellraiser by mistake! Yikes, better get Wooof to go search the membership register pronto…
