"Attack of the Clones"

Yeah, 'cause it's so out of place considering the other four titles:

The Phantom Menace
A New Hope
The Empire Strikes Back
Return of the Jedi



As has been typically the case with the prequels, there are very few complaints that do not ALSO apply to the "Classic Trilogy." I believe the entire Saga should be praised for its intentional references to parts of our culture and history:

- WWII-type battles and dogfights
- Vader's samurai armor
- the archtypal wizard, farmboy, princess, and pirate
- the car chases, bar scenes, and diner scenes that have been done a thousand times before
- and, yes, even the titles that harken back to cheesy comic books

But if you will not praise Star Wars, at least be consistent in your criticism: the complaint about "Attack of the Clones" applies to the other four films.

At any rate, the title is clear, and it's understood how it applies to the film: there are clones, and they attack.

Ballistic: Ecks Vs. Sever.

Utter gibberish.

Exactly. You'd think it was based on a comic book or something. Everytime I see that preview I say, "What the hell? Why not just call it 'Ballistics'?"

The movie titles just keep getting worse and worse.

But alas, I'm seeing One Hour Photo tonight, and it should be awesome. Hopefully.

Slap Her, She's French is coming out later this fall. Sounds like a quality film to me.

Not to mention a good foreign policy in general.

Every morning I drive past a billboard for this movie, and every day I think "what a dumb sounding movie".

In response to this, France - following its long military tradition - surrenders without putting up a fight.

Deep Blue Sea

Shoulda been called Deep Blew See. Samuel L was killed early on, but LL Cool James was the hero, so i guess there's balance. For as mediocre the movie was, you'd maybe think the title would be reserved for some worthwhile Discovery Channel epic.
