Exactly. Find material that matches your interests. It helps if you are looking for stuff that isn't the same as what everyone else is looking for. Eighties horror is very hot right now, so you aren't going to see bargains on any Zombie, slasher or Hammer vampire paper. Ten years ago, not so much. I bought a Nightmare on Elm Street poster for $10 back in the mid-90s that you need at least $150 to buy now.
Of course, I also have a fair amount of stuff that "seemed like a good idea at the time", but "what was I thinking". I'm embarrassed to even admit I own it.
One more thing. There is always a 'hot' movie out there where everyone is competing for the posters, and that drives the price up to a crazy level. Last year it was Black Swan. These posters always crash in price.
