“You’re so cool.”

Firs thing's first. You signed up yet?

Quentin Tarantino has been described as the coolest director of all time on many a occasion. Whilst I don’t totally agree with this, I do have to concede that his film titles truly are too cool.

We were having a conversation today about how cool “300” was as a title, so I feel like making a random list of the top 10 coolest (not best, mind) film titles:

01. Reservoir Dogs (come on, that is just beyond cool!)
02. Sin City
03. 300
04. Run Lola Run (in the original German Lola Rennt rocks too)
05. Heat
06. The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly
07. Kill Bill
08. Lost in Translation (I didn’t care for it at all, but it is a pretty cool title.)
09. Johnny Guitar
10. Oldboy

Lil' Green bag.

What's more, I've recently developed quite a lil' penchant for ogrgeous images of scenary. These are some of the best I've found: here, here, here and here.

So unbelievably gorgeous!

No Late Spring (Ozu)?

Blimey, that were fast! I've only just pressed "publish"!

Anyway, Late Spring is a lovely film! It is actually v. cool in its own little way, though the title, for featuring the word "spring", disqualifies itself, methinks. :D

King Size Canary.

It was Tarantino's birthday yesterday, so the Guardian informs me.

Hmm...coolest film titles;

Pulp Fiction
Drugstore Cowboy

Not all of them are necessarily "cool", but most of them conjure up images for me, independant of their films, which is kinda cool.

Personal favourite: Slap Her... She's French. Closely followed by Phat Girlz, of course.

"Be Cool", a quintessentially cool title, sadly the film wasn't.

How could I forget The Big Sleep?

paul haine said...

Be Cool is, ironically, eye-wateringly uncool, from the use of the never-cool-again-because-of-Battlefield-Earth-and-Scientology John Travolta, to the constant name-dropping of the excerable Black-Eyed Peas, to Uma Thurman's apparent impression of the latter-day Madonna, all bumping and grinding to dreadful R&B...urgh, what an awful film. Like watching your dad at a disco.

How about films with dreadful titles? I watched "The Quiet American" earlier this week - an alarmingly fantastic film, with a really creaky title. It sounds dire!
