    Re: Best Film Titles

    Pen, you've obviously never read the pulps, if you ask that question, man.

      I didn't see any Fedoras or neon signs or Chevrolet Stylelines in Pulp Fiction, noh. That movie is such a modern potpurri of ripped off film styles, what 10 cent pulp literature did Tarantino actually base it on? I think he just got a woody from a great title and applied it regardless

        The two that came to mind right away are Unforgiven and Adaptation.

          I forgot to add "Chopper Chicks in Zombie Town."

          The title is inspired. The film, unfortunately, is not. While it has a couple of good bits, as a whole it drags.

          I also think that Robert Ludlum comes up with some pretty cool titles for his books; hence, movies based on them also have cool titles.


          So let's hear it for:

          The Mothman Prophecies
          Chopper Chicks in Zombie Town
          Five Million Years to Earth
          Invasion of the Body Snatchers
          The Holcroft Covenant
          The Ipcress File
          The Bourne Identity, Supremacy, and presumably Ultimatum
          The Osterman Weekend
          The Odessa File

            Gotta love it!
            Just one more reason to get hammered tonight.

                "Chopper Chicks in Zombie Town"

                ...is indeed a terrible film ( also, it's Billy Bob Thornton's screen debut.)

                I'd totally forgotten about Troma. If you want great camp titles, they're where it's at:

                Class of Nuke 'Em High
                Sgt. Kabukiman NYPD

                and of course,

                The Toxic Avenger
                They cursed us forever, making us prefer dreams to lives.

                  The Last Wave
                  The Year of Living Dangerously
                  Witness

                    Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil

                    Can you believe the book was originally going to be titled "The Cat Did It"?

                      The Truman Show
                      Funny how all of Hollywood hated the title, Dead Poet's Society when that script was first going around. The running joke was, the only title more depressing than that one would be, Dead Poet's Society In Winter.
