Titles That Were Perfect


Recommended Posts

Double Idemnity - explains it without giving it away.

Sunset Boulevard- what else could it be called?

Angel And The Badman- pretty self explanatory

They Were Expendable - war-what an ugly thing

A Bridge Too Far -also self explanatory

 

Okay let's hear from you!

so many! here are a few I can think of. my criteria is for a good title is as follows: it's catchy, it's memorable, it makes you wonder "what's that movie?", and it completely explains what the film is...

 

double indemnity

witness for the prosecution

to kill a mockingbird

the major and the minor (i like Wilder, can you tell?)

night train to munich

lifeboat

white christmas (because the hit song existed before, and it explains the whole conflict of the film)

yankee doodle dandy (see above)

damn yankees

 

that's all I can think of for now. :)

What should great movie titles be like? Well, they shouldn't be obvious ("Jaws" for example). They should be enigmatic, like "Chinatown," which isn't really the subject of the movie, but which is alluded to carefully in the movie.

 

And then there's this: Celine and Julie go Boating. Just say it out loud.
