    "The Man Who Killed Hitler and Then the Bigfoot" is easily my favourite from recent years. Haven't seen it, mind.

    Actually a really good movie with Sam Elliot that's not really anything like the title suggests even though both those killings are genuinely part of the movie. It's a strange one, I expected a nonsensical schlock-fest and found a slow-burning drama, but it's a solid flick.

    Cheers. I had heard it was decent alright, and Elliot is always watchable.

    How did this piece of ephemeral knowledge come your way?

    Aliens

    Does what it says on the tin. Like Alien - but more of them.

    Great one-word titles are pretty hard to beat, like Jaws, Alien, The Godfather*, Parasite, etc. A few more complex that stand out to me as kind of eye-catching in one way or another:

    Things to Do in Denver When You're Dead
    Blade Runner
    Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy
    The Taking of Pelham 123
    Joe's So Mean to Josephine

    *The "The" doesn't count!

    Octopussy

    back in the pre-politically correct times, when Bond was tongue in cheek innuendo

    Plan 9 from Outer Space.


    I've long hated Braveheart for it's predictability and cliches, plus my disdain for much of Gibson's post Mad Max Hollywood work. I've always wanted to call it Plan 9 from the Outer Hebrides.

    Some movie titles can carry a good deal of meaning, e.g. The Killing Fields,
    some very little bearing on the context of the movie, e.g. Chinatown

    It's a short film but:
    The Horribly Slow Murderer with the Extremely Inefficient Weapon

    I'm not sure what's more shocking, the title or the fact that it was made as recently as 1992.

    Welcome to the boom!

    Great title, rubbish movie.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,561 ✭✭✭ FortuneChip


    Jaws. It doesn't need more, it doesn't mess around. JAWS.

    Serendipity. It's just a lovely word.
    Equilibrium. Same reason.

    Things We Lost In The Fire. Never saw it, but it sounds poetic.

    Spaceballs.

    Gas film. Starred John Candy :(

    The Tree of Wooden Clogs is a nice one if you bear in mind the film itself.
