Agoraphobic Headers

When The Agoraphobic Reviewer launched in 2009 it had a simplistic image strapped across its brow, the now infamous yet blurred face of a critic too afeared to leave his house. The header was revamped to something more elaborate in 2010, prompting editor John Le Baptiste to declare “[It is] pleasing to look upon it and see my own blubberous mug smugging back out at you”.

To celebrate the site’s first anniversary, contributor Old Rope produced a series of thematic headers, based on films the writers have not seen (obviously). Most of the headers feature editor and founder John Le Baptiste in some filmic guise or other.  If they look nothing like the originals then remember, we have never seen the films, so we would not know.

Smaller versions of these images are compiled below. The originals were obviously bigger than these. What do you think this, is smallville?
