More On Bass vs. Binder

Michael Sporn has some good comments on my Bass vs. Binder post:

Bass started designing titles earlier than Binder, and he made an art of it.
Binder's work was always lightweight in comparison. The graphics weren't as gemane to the film; they were pretty pictures.

Check out Bass's idea of funny in That's Entertainment. He parodies movie titles of the past.

Pablo Ferro was also brilliant. His titles for Dr. Strangelove are classic.

My problem with Ferro's Strangelove titles is that while the visuals are great -- funny and subversive just like the movie -- the credits are kind of ugly and sometimes hard to read, and I think that a good title sequence needs to have legible credits.
