Movie Monday: She’s Out of My League
Posted by Rosepixie on February 15, 2010
This is a poster for the upcoming movie She’s Out of My League.
I have trouble looking at this poster. I’m pretty sure they did some weird editing on the guy’s face and I’m not sure why. Maybe just to make him look less attractive? He doesn’t look that weird in other photos. There are strange flattened out places on his face in this image that I just can’t get past. It’s too weird.
The thing is, while this may have been well intentioned (to reinforce that he’s a “5”), mostly what it does is tell me that I don’t want to see the movie. If he looks like that and I’m having trouble just looking at him in a picture, image how annoying it would be to watch him for two hours in a movie? It would be awful! Now, I’m betting he doesn’t look like this. And the problems with looking at him have nothing to do with attractiveness. I don’t have problems looking at people who aren’t conventionally attractive, but the way they altered his face makes it weird to look at. People don’t look Photoshopped like that. They just don’t.
