    That's it, titles. It doesn't matter if the film was good or not, just a title that got your attention. Doesn't matter if you haven't even seen it either.
    Full Metal Jacket
    Blade Runner
    American Gigolo
    Clockwork Orange
    Great titles, it's just a coincidence that they're pretty good films.[​IMG]

    I like titles that evoke the Homerian epics, with odyssean allusions. Dunno why.
