Recently an online film forum had an interesting discussion about movies that reveal the theme in their titles. Here are some of the best recommendations.
1. The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford (2007)
This film is based on a book that dramatizes the relationship between Jesse James and, you guessed it, Robert Ford. The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford focuses on the events that lead up to the famed killing.
2. The Man Who Killed Hitler and Then the Bigfoot (2018)
The legend, wait for it, dary veteran that ended WWII by assassinating Hitler has been called upon once again by his great country. This time, his mission target is a well-known mythical creature called Bigfoot.
3. Snakes on a Plane (2006)
Someone intentionally released a plane full of poisonous snakes to eliminate a federal witness. Fortunately, there is an FBI agent who has had enough of these snakes on a plane. But does he have what it takes to stave these snakes off from Honolulu to Los Angeles?
4. The Incredibly Strange Creatures Who Stopped Living and Became Mixed-Up Zombies (1964)
After scoffing at the predictions of a gypsy woman, a young man falls in love with the gypsy woman’s sister and is also turned into a murderous, undead, flesh-eating zombie.
5. The Boss Baby (2017)
The addition of a new baby to a family is unreliably narrated by the family’s seven-year-old son and now older brother. However, the seven-year soon learns the boss baby is really a spy on a secret mission to defeat an evil plot between puppies and babies.
6. Home Alone (1990)
Home Alone tells the story of how eight-year-old Kevin McCallister is mistakenly left home alone on Christmas and his professional execution at protecting his home from the Wet Bandits. Joe Pesci and Daniel Stern are the Wet Bandits who leave a splash pool in their victims’ homes as a calling card.
7. Saving Private Ryan (1998)
This military film tells the story of a special detachment whose mission is to locate and evacuate Private Ryan. The importance of saving Private Ryan is that he has lost all three of his brothers in the same war. On their way to retrieve the precious cargo, every member of the special detail experiences personal growth on some level or another.
8. Kill Bill Vol. 1 (2003)
This title couldn’t be more straightforward. His name is Bill, and the mission is to kill him. Tarantino was on to something when he came up with this title.
9. The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993)
Despite the title laying everything right out on the line from jump street, a first-time viewer could never truly be prepared for the first watching of The Nightmare Before Christmas. I remember my mom buying this around Christmas time because it had the word “Christmas” in the title. Needless to say, this movie scared me right good as a youngster.
10. Being John Malkovich (1999)
Being John Malkovich is a weird one, but as the post is titled, the movie is explained in its title. A temp worker finds a portal into the mind of John Malkovich, and that’s not even where the story takes a turn for weird; it gets weirder.
11. Back to the Future (1985)
Marty McFly finds himself 30 years in the past when his good friend Doc Brown creates and activates a time-traveling DeLorean that sends Marty back to the 50s. In 1955 Marty encounters his parents, who haven’t met yet, and if he isn’t careful, he could cease to exist. So now McFly is on a mission to get back to the future.
