    I've turned voting into an art form.

    So out of the alternates I mentioned I had, only one got entered in the meantime... @Captain pl1ngpl0ng 's Dune avatar. (And I still had another Dune avatar anyway!) So here are the ones that didn't end up being entered.

    Posted, I mean voted.

    Okay, I may have made the topic too broad, as I have a real shit ton of alternates. I'm not going to post them all at once, though. Better use them to occasionally bump the thread. So, here are the first twenty:

    Those are the only ones I've seen, and the only one of those I didn't recognize was From Dusk Til Dawn, although I did think the character I now realize is Santanico Pandemonium looks kinda familiar. Some of the others I'd never even heard of before.

    That's the problem with today's modern movie posters... not enough overt references to the budget! :lol:
