Design Research Methods: 20/20 Presentation Outline

Orginally, I find this task very clever because as I know all the designers collects something, posters, flyers or interesting objects. However I am an organization freak, I don't like pile of books or objects around my working space, so I simply don't collect any items to keep my room clean and tidy. Therefore I couldn't came any ideas about this Authorship and Collections task, until Peter gave me the best idea. It shouldn't be something physical, it can be virtual. Thus I have been collecting movie posters on my hard drives since I was a small child. I have always like watching trailers more than movies and the way that the posters communicates with the audience just for one minute for a two hours of movies just amazes me. So I flick through some of the movies and posters I like and try to make a list of them for the outline of my presentation.
If you look close enough you can notice that just like everything else movie posters also have trends and fashions. Therefore I didn't want to go all the way back to really old movie posters. However I feel the need to give place to big artists like Saul Bass or Bill Gold which I really admire. I will pick twenty of the posters among this list I created chronologically:
