What titles (movie/book/TV series/etc.) seemed oddly inappropriate, unintentionally humorous, if not outright wrong, for whatever reasons, and you wondered how someone could have been as oblivious as to choose it for their work?
My favorite is the film K-Pax, which sounds to me like a feminine hygiene product.
Based on its idiotic title, Going All the Way promised to be a moronic high-school sex comedy. A friend convinvced me to watch it, though, and instead it was a pretty well-done, dark little drama about a couple of fairly young soldiers coming home from the Korean War.
Not to menion: Mmmm… Rose McGowan in a prom dress…
Ballistic: Ecks vs. Sever sounds like they never finished writing the title. There ought to be more to it, or less
Metalstorm: The DEstruction of Jared-Syn sounds as if they expect us to know who or what Jared-Syn is.
Sorceror sounds like a fantasy film, or maybe it’s about Carlos Castaneda’s shaman, Don Juan Matus. I never would’ve figured it as a remake of The Wages of Fear. It was YEARS before I learned where the title came from (It’s apparently the name of one of the trucks)
Vision Quest sounds like it should be a fantasy quest movie, or maybe about a pre-Columbian American Indian going on his mystic inner journey. I’d never have guessed it’s about a high school wrestler:
A stupid title made even stupider by the fact that at no point in the movie is Jared-Syn destroyed.
(Yes, I just used spoiler tags on Metalstorm. We wouldn’t want to ruin anyone’s enjoyment of that fine piece of science-fiction cinema, would we?)
