Best Movie Titles

among my favorite movie titles are



Generally, movies with geat names are horrible, low budget movies (like local Rock groups with hilarious names).

Other movie titles like **Attack of the Killer Tomatoes ** are played just for laughs and dont count in my mind.

Still others, like **Boy in the Plastic Bubble ** are campy and deserve a certain amount of accolades.

The Brutal Truth of Butterflies

The Incredibly Strange Creatures Who Decided To Stop Living and Became Mixed-Up Zombies.

Oops! It appears I’ve mangled it slightly.

The Incredibly Strange Creatures Who Stopped Living and Became Mixed-Up Zombies!!? - is the correct version.

Breakin’ 2: Electric Boogaloo.

They Shoot Horses, Don’t They? – the title doesn’t make any sense at all until the final moment of the movie, when you realize it’s perfect. And it violates the rule by being a damn good film.

There was also Can Hieronymus Merkin Ever Forget Mercy Humppe and Find True Happiness? It was written by Anthony Newley, who had hit plays named Stop the World, I Want to Get Off and The Roar of the Greasepaint, the Smell of the Crowd. He evidently loved concise titles. :slight_smile:

There’s also **Oh Dad, Poor Dad, Mama’s Hung You in the Closet and I’m Feeling So Sad ** and **Who Is Harry Kellerman and Why Is He Saying Those Terrible Things About Me? **.

One of my all-time favorite titles is Sorority Babes in the Slimeball Bowl-O-Rama.

With a title like that, who needs a movie?

Years ago on the old NBC Letterman show, Dave’s guest was some old cigar chomping producer of hundreds of American International Films movies.

He stated that they would sit around and think up outrageuos names and THEN write a script based on the title. He would cast women based solely on thier ability to scream (well, breast size was probably important too).

I’m sure that John Goodman’s character in “Matinee” was based on this guy.

This is my go-to movie when playing “Charades” for the win.

The Viking Women and the Sea Serpent. I never made it through the movie, but I love the title.

Bubba Ho-Tep not only had a good title but was a pretty good movie as well.

Half Past Dead.

Star Wars, Episode III: The Backstroke of the West. Probably the only bootleg I would actually pay to watch.

** The unbearable lightness of being **

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
In the Mouth of Madness
Requiem for a Dream

And of course:

Oh crap, how could I have possibly forgotten:

Oh, you beat me to it. Love that movie, especially the bit where BB King is trying to sponsor David Allen Grier getting a soul.
