Sometimes a title is the best thing about a movie. Sometimes the title is, in fact, awesome, and the movie is a complete waste of time. In such cases, someone needs to buy the remake rights, scrap the plot, nuke the story, disappear the characters, and start from scratch: doing justice to the awesome title.
Perhaps the archetypal recent example: Snakes on a Plane. The height of awesomeness for this movie was the moment the final preview ended before the first screening. From there, all downhill.
Less celebrated, I think, but even more worthy: Mars Needs Women. The movie is, by all accounts, dreadful on a Plan 9 scale. But the title is a thing of beauty: suggestive, campy, sinister, amusing, weird. There’s a lot of potential in that title, and someone needs to make a movie worthy of it ASAP.
What terrific titles would you like to see attached to much better movies?
