Episode #42: Great Flicks/ Crappy Titles

November 18th, 2012

We’ve all been in that situation.  You are trying your damnedest to convince a friend/family/lover to screen one of your favorite films & you’re met with resistance & hesitancy.  “I don’t know, I don’t usually like that actor/ What’s that?  I’ve never heard of it/ Sounds foreign & I don’t do subtitles,” - just a few of the myriad of phrases we here @ the Triforce have heard over the years.  Usually these battles are of an uphill & slippery-sloped nature, but are eventually resolved with praise & concurring judgments.


Once in a while, the studios (in their ever-present wisdom) slap these amazing films with titles that are, at their best, esoteric and at their worst, downright insulting.  Curious yet?  Good.
