Coolest Movie Titles?

A great title, even a movie you’ve never seen… Even if its a bad movie. I’m sure I’ll find a better example, but I like the title, “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas”, even if I didn’t like the movie.

A lot of movies take their titles from the play or book from which they were adapted, and this is one: Children of a Lesser God.

The title is based on a stanza from Tennyson’s Idylls of the King.

They Shoot Horses, Don’t They

There Will Be Blood.

“I Am Curious Yellow”

Cool Hand Luke.

That’s the one I was trying to think of.

Silence of the Lambs
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

The Rocky Horror Picture Show.

I’ve always thought the same about that title. But 20 years later (2 months ago), I finally watched it. 6/10 - a few funny parts, but there were a lot of similar movies around that time, mostly De Palma. De Niro was pretty funny, though.

“Snakes on a Plane”. Those four words were probably the entirety of the green-lit pitch.

Does ‘Snakes on a Plane’ count? The movie is just made up to suit the title made up to be cool sounding.
