Default Re: Worst Movie Title

I saw a poster at the movie theater yesterday for a film called "No Escape." I googled it, and apparently its about an American business man vacationing with his family in Southeast Asia, and they find themselves in the middle of a coup.

That's not the worst title in the world, but I remember a movie that came out in the early 90s that was also called No Escape. That film featured Ray Liotta and took place in the near future, where the world's most dangerous criminals are dropped off on an island and left to fend for themselves against other prisoners, in a "Lord of the Flies" like setting.

I feel like, if you have a title that can fit two completely different movies with almost no similarities, your title is WAY too generic.

I think that's Owen Wilson's new movie.

Ah, Blair Witch 2. That one ranks up there as one of the worst sequels of all time. It almost seemed like it was embarrassed to be associated with the (vastly superior) first movie, so they decided to make the first movie fictional within the actual story, which was a dumb approach. Especially considering that the premise of the second film involved evil spirits whose primary power was being able to edit video footage or something.

Oh well. At least I got to see a hot naked chick riding a skull.

Has anyone said Highlander: The Quickening? Because it deserves another mention.

Eh, I don't think that one is that bad. I mean, the movie may be awful, but the title isn't as bad compared to some of these others.

I remember all the whining for The Phantom Menace and Attack of the Clones" and thinking: "Yeah. Because The Empire Strikes Back! doesn't sound cheesy at all."


Not the worst movie title, but it would be pretty bad if Lucas wasn't trying to emulate the old serials.

I think The Empire Strikes Back is one of the best movie titles.

I still think that Ballistic: Ecks Vs Sever is the worst title ever.

I vaguely remember a scene from the movie, but I haven't seen the actual film yet. Guess I am afraid too

Hahaha yeah, that title just sounds stupid on so many levels. But you have to hand it to them, they really COMMITTED to giving that movie a stupid title. They could have just called it "Ballistic" or "Agent Ecks" or "Sever" but nooooooo... they really WENT for the stupidest choice possible.

I do agree that that is a poor title. Weak movie too. It was like they couldn't decide on what to title it. If it was just Ecks Vs. Sever, fine. If it was Ballistic, cool. I'm not sure I've heard a movie called that, but I could be wrong.

Ecks vs Sever. Maybe someone watched pictures of severed arms and yelled "eck! Disgusting!"?

I haven't watched it, but I've heard about a disgusting movie called Spanking the Monkey. I'm sorry to say that it doesn't star Arnold Schwarzenegger as a badass mercenary who spanks mutated monkeys to death with a superpowered glove.
