Movie Titles

October 18, 2002 (Fri)



I admit, I feel giddy every time I’m watching a movie and one of the characters says the title of the film. When Clint Eastwood’s doctor told him that she’d need to run his blood work, I smiled to myself. When Tom Cruise was told to look for the minority report, I wanted to stand up and cheer. When Ray Liotta explained how good it felt to be a goodfella, I pissed my pants. I think every movie should have at least one moment in which a character mentions the title in a very explicit way. How cool would it have been if, at the end of The Deer Hunter, after everybody finished singing “God Bless America,” Robert Deniro would have turned to the camera with an ominous expression on his face and said, “Hey…I’m the Deer Hunter,” and then the screen faded to black? Genius. That would have been brilliant.

    Yeah, so I'm watching Leaving Las Vegas and I'm waiting for them to say the title... I mean, come on, it's a good title, so use the damn thing. I was pissed.
