Worst Movie Title

I Want Someone to Eat Cheese With
 
The Dark Knight Rises.

As much as I love the Nolan/Bale Batman franchise, this title has ALWAYS bothered me.

I feel like any of these would have been a much better title:
Rise of The Dark Knight
The Dark Knight Returns
Rise Dark Knight

Orgazmo (1997), this worst movie title ever
 
Armored. Talk about a description and a boring one rather than a title or suggesting a story.

And Dawn of the Planet of the Apes sounds pretty stupid as a sequel title in that a planet/society's dawn should come before its rise.
 
Attack of the Clones.

I remember hearing it the first time and thinking it was a joke. And when I found out it wasn't I recall thinking "OFFS ! Come on George, is that the BEST you can come up with?"

Of course then I saw the film and realised that the title was not the worst thing about it.
 
Off the top of my head "Star Trek: Into Darkness" sounds pretty bad, but to be completely fair I still haven't seen the movie in it's entirety, so maybe it makes more sense in context? Also Batman "v" Superman (which I don't feel the need to watch before I laugh at the title.)

I don't know if it's the worst ever, but "The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies" is a pretty clunky title.

I don't think the Star Wars titles are quite as bad as people make them out to be. They seem to be intentionally corny. This is one case where I actually like the older "clunky" names more than the newer names like "The Force Awakens" which sounds a bit too modern and slick to me.

Any sequel with a number at the end of it's title. It's just lazy. Books don't do this, why do movies get the easy out?

Honestly, I'm kind of the opposite. I feel like a lot of sequels end up with somewhat vague and even silly-sounding titles that are ultimately pointless. At least a number serves the purpose of letting the viewer know what order in which to watch the movies (which can be useful in a franchise that has many entries). Given the choice I think I'd prefer that to a title like "Star Trek Beyond", which doesn't really add anything whatsoever.

My favorite titles are ones that combine a number and a sub-title, the way the Star Wars movies or the classic Star Treks do. Extra points if they can find a way to work the number into the title cleverly like Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (possibly the best sequel title ever?)

Yes, know realize post is over half a decade old.
 
How to Train Your Dragon is one of my favorite movies in 'recent' years, but I really don't like its title. It sounds like a tutorial..something like The Night Fury would be better, I guess :p

I think How to Train Your Dragon is supposed to sound like a tutorial, but come to think of it the title doesn't quite fit the movie. The HTTYD movies are actually more serious and played straight than a lot of other recent animated movies (compared to something like Despicable Me.) Maybe the title was a bit more appropriate for the book.
 
Call me by Your Name is an awkward title.

The first movie is about a guy taming and training a dragon so its a perfectly suitable title. The sequel could have used a different title.

I remember back when the title was first announced, a friend of mine said, “they forgot to include ‘fifty-foot’ in there.” Such a horrible title for an absolutely unwatchable film.

This scene is quite cool.

Obi Wan hanging from a flying toilet, is part one of the coolest moments in the entire franchise.

Well, actually is just Star Trek Into Darkness. Which would've been original if the film was actually a lot darker. But it really wasn't.
 
The titles for the new Trek films have been so annoyingly lazy. But then, so have the movies. The only one I like is the first one. Talk about squandering a great cast with mediocre scripts.
 
Beyond Skyline is a pretty bad title. I've heard the movie is awesome though; probably going to watch it sometime this week since it's on Netflix.

I have no idea what impression they aimed to let the audience have with this title, it did not feel like anything that leaves an impression.
 
LOL yeah. Poorly made, jingoistic war movies always seem to have dumb titles.
 
King Arthur: Legend of the Sword


Because, you know, if they called it “King Arthur: The Legend of Excalibur”, it might have confused people. How would they know that Excalibur is a sword? Very important to clarify these things.
 
^They should have probably gone with Excalibur, but that title is alright.


Hard Candy
I might not hate it so much if I hadn't read two movies linked like this
He’s also great in Little Children and Hard Candy, if you haven’t seen those.
When praising one actor in both movies.
 
Just read some of the description.... they will both be difficult for me to watch.
