    Great titles seem to be dying out. Some of my favorites from 2011 were Melancholia, Meek’s Cutoff and The Devil’s Double (might be my favorite). None of these really match up with great ones from the past (titles like “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly,” “They Were Expendable,” “The Night of the Hunter,” “Imitation of Life”), but I was interested to see what the members here love.

    Deux ou trois choses que je sais d’elle/Two or Three Things I Know About Her (Jean-Luc Godard/1967) is my all time favorite.

    People Meet and Sweet Music Fills the Heart, a late 60s Danish film I haven’t seen, also in an all-time favorite

    The Girl with the Dragon Tatoo has by far the best titles of 2011’s films.

    Any movie where a character says the name of the movie IN THE MOVIE usually has an awesome title.

    Others:

    One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest
    The Devil Wears Prada
    Inglourious Basterds
    Winter’s Bone
    Strangers on a Train
    Revolutionary Road
    Django Unchained (I seriously hope this comes out good)
    Girl, Interrupted

    For me, a great title doesn’t only sum up (or act as an intro to) the film it’s attached to. It should also be clever or meaningful in and of itself. I like a lot of the titles mentioned here. A few of my favorite:

    “Adaptation”
    “The Beat My Heart Skipped”
    “Best Worst Movie”
    “Blazing Saddles”
    “Children Shouldn’t Play with Dead Things”
    “He Died with a Felafel in His Hand”
    “Honey, I Shrunk the Kids”
    “Kill Bill”
    “Last House on the Left”
    “No Country for Old Men”
    “Pulp Fiction”
    “Rocky Horror Picture Show”
    “Shakespeare in Love”
    “Shaun on the Dead”
    “Silence of the Lambs”
    “Silent Night, Deadly Night”
    “The Incredibly Strange Creatures Who Stopped Living and Became Mixed-Up Zombies”
    “There Will Be Blood”

    I hate to overthink this, but do “No Country For Old Men” and “The Silence Of Lambs” count in this discussion? They are strong, memorable titles for sure, but they come from the books (and great books usually have great titles – unless it’s named after the character, that’s another matter completely).

    That said, some of my favorites:

    “Les quatre cente coups”/”The 400 Blows” 
    “Repulsion”
    “The Night Of The Hunter”
    “Days Of Heaven” 
    “Night Of The Living Dead”
    “Brief Encounter”
    “Once Upon a Time In The West”
    “Carne Tremula”/”Live Flesh”
    “Drag Me To Hell” 
    “The Hurt Locker”
    “In The Mouth Of Madness”

    There are many more, i’ll post as I remember them.
