The Greatest Movie Title

Recommended Posts

Two cool ones were already mentioned:

"Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb" (of course ;) )

and "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly"

also how about "Plan 9 from Outer Space"? :D

... while it is not a pressing cinematic question, it is a fun one ...The trick with this parlor game is to separate one's adoration for a given picture from the relative aptness, poetic beauty or comic rightness of its title ...

I don't consider any of these to be the "greatest", but, to get things rolling, here's a haphazard list of what I think are some effective movie titles:

American Graffiti

Analyze This

Beach Blanket Bingo

Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice

Carnal Knowledge

Close Encounters of the Third Kind


Dude, Where's My Car?

Dumb And Dumber

The Endless Summer

A Fish Called Wanda

The Girl Can't Help It

Gone Baby Gone

Honey, I Shrunk the Kids

House of Flying Daggers

How the West Was Won

I Bury The Living

An Inconvenient Truth

The Nightmare Before Christmas

A Nightmare on Elm Street

Rebel Without a Cause

Revenge of the Nerds

The Russians Are Coming, the Russians Are Coming

Take The Money and Run

This Island Earth

The Usual Suspects

The Year of Living Dangerously


[smaller] Note: This is not my endorsement as to the cinematic merits of any of these motion pictures. They've just got 'catchy' titles.[/smaller]

I went to see The Unbearable Lightness Of Being in the theater, based soley upon the film's title. Had never heard of its young star before, Daniel Day Lewis.

Daniel Day is one of my favorite star and atleast 7 times i watched "The Unbearable Lightness Of Being" because it really deserves that views!
