Fonts can be split into Serif and Sans-serif
Fonts such as 'times new romans' are known as Serif fonts, they've got a 'tail' at the end. Serif fonts are said to be more formal than sans serif fonts and are more old fashioned.
Sans Serif fonts such as 'Verdana' are tail-less. Sans, which means without in French. Therefore these type of fonts are 'without-serifs'.

There were two different film posters that we looked at, these were of ROCKY and PEARL HARBOR.
|This is a font called 'palatino' which is a serif font |
; hence the tails at the bottom of the letters.The serif type of fonts are said to be
old fashioned so this can hint to us that this film contains historical features e.g.
about war etc.
