If you look at the Harry Potter poster it communicates "Finally, these two will battle." Which is what will happen. The Tree Of Life Poster instead shows us a tapestry of all the places, and time periods the film will take us. Imagine the poster large sitting outside a theater: each thumbnail is probably a few inches wide, and is easy for an observer to stop and take in each one. Much like a Malick film. This isn't simply "hipster" style. Both posters are designed for the type of experience you can expect from each film.

And what should we call the "un-hipsterized" Harry Potter poster? Y'know, the one that is designed exactly as you'd expect. I guess anything unexpected gets the "Hipster" label in condescending fashion. Agree, Mike.

Lame, dude.
