I was inspired by the selection of movie poster screensavers available on http://kindlerama.com/free-screens/

Now I'm starting to add my own. I'll update this thread as I add more.

I've converted them into B&W and re-sized them to 800x600 to fit the Kindle perfectly (I find images as close to the proper size as possible so they still look good after they're
re-sized).

WARNING: Custom screensavers, if discovered by Amazon (in the case of a breakdown, etc.), will VOID YOUR WARRANTY. Click HERE for more information.

Apparently, your warranty is restored if you remove any custom screensavers.


With that bit of doom and gloom out of the way, here are the screensavers...

I thought I was one of only three Miracle Mile fans in existence. Now I have found a fourth!

Great to run into another fan of Miracle Mile. :) It's a classic. Shame more people haven't heard of/seen it. It's easily the best work Anthony Edwards has ever done.

I actually only saw it for the first time a few months ago, but it's one of those I've been wanting to see for years.

Thankfully, it was well worth the wait. I absolutely love it.

Anyway, I've added more movie poster screensavers (see original post).

It has been challenging finding some of the older movies in a size that's close enough to Kindle's native 800x600. Most of what I've seen is half that size and wouldn't look good if I tried to blow it up.

Nice to see that you have Amelie also. It is one of my very favorite movies. I love when
she changes everything in the grocer's apartment, including his speed dial.

Glad everyone is enjoying these. I added some more.

But...

Nice work, CS!  Are you taking requests?  If you are, I'd love to get the Bladerunner movie poster as a Kindle screen saver.

I actually tried this one last week. It really doesn't come out very well--too dark and not enough contrast. Red lettering on a mostly black picture. But I'll do it again when I get home. :)

buddy's wife:

Your sig line comes out very big. . .I'm reading on a laptop and and kinda fills the screen. I'm pretty sure there's a way to make the picture a little smaller. Betsy or Verena (pidgeon92) or Leslie [other moderators] or maybe even some other members can probable tell you how to reduce the size a bit. It has something to do with setting the image size but I don't recall the details. But if you PM any of those folks they'll be happy to help you.

Or someone else might chime in now that I've mentioned it. To clarify: No Problem with the content, the picture size is just unwieldy on my little screen. :)

Thanks!

Ann

Through the course of 2009 we'll be making available to Kindle owners our archive of movie stills, ads and posters in addition to articles, stories, features and over 30,000 film reviews. Boxoffice began publishing in 1920 and continues to this day. We're very excited about the possibilities with the Kindle.

This sounds very interesting, especially the film reviews. Can you tell us more?
