    It seems to me that there is an unnatural number of featurettes whose titles are "Verbing the Noun". For example:
    The Usual Suspects - "Pursuing the Suspects"
    Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon - "Unleashing the Dragon"
    The French Connection - "Making the Connection"
    ...and so forth. It's so ubiquitous that it's become kind of a cliché, and a pet peeve of mine. I'd like to compile a complete list of all the offenders. Why? I dunno, just somethin' to do [​IMG]
    So if you happen to have a DVD in front of you with a "____ing the ____" kind of featurette on it, post it here!

    Why not have fun with this:
    "Detoxing the Avenger"
    "Complicating the Instinct"
    "Creating the Hair Gel"
    "Snorting the Blow"
    "Defiling the Animals" (Freddy got Fingered)

    I'm just glad that Universal went with "The Hamster Factor and Other Tales of..." rather than "Spanking the 12 Monkeys". [​IMG]
