What makes a great movie title? To me, it’s like porn: You know it when you see it. What are some of the best and worst movie titles of all times? I’m not talking about the quality of the movie—in fact, you get bonus points for a bad movie with a great title and visa versa, and super double bonus points for a really bad movie whose success was almost certainly the result of a snazzy title.
It’s got a great, snappy rhythm, it tells you who the movie is about, and lends a general sense of grandeur to the proceedings.

Your first reaction to this title is: “What the hell does that mean?” And the curious, good kind of “What the hell is that?” either. I know it was a video game adaptation, but still. It sucks.
