Long titles suck! I’m sorry but long movie titles are hard to even remember at times and if you don’t have a memorable title, what is even the point? Anyway, I tried to find the three movies that have super long titles that I was actually okay with. That didn’t go so well so I’m adding one that I had mixed feelings about. Yet, that movie fits today’s theme perfectly and I’m guessing it’s a popular choice for many.
Compared to the other two, this title is not too long but it proves my point – I could not say this title on the first go. I still don’t know it by heart and probably never will. I’ll just call it Zach’s Bundy movie, it’s easier. Regardless, this got some criticism and most of it was earned. Still, I quite liked it and was excited to see it on a big screen. I did review it, which was a rare thing for me in 2019 (I shall try to do better in 2020). Yet, I wish the title was a little shorter – doesn’t matter that it has a meaning and it connects with the movie. Long titles don’t really work… for somebody like me.
That time I was still doing my Blindspot thing (failed a lot of challenges this year), I watched this. Luckily it does have a shorter alternative, Dr. Strangelove which everyone uses over the actual title. This is the movie I wasn’t very thrilled about. It’s about war and politics, themes that escape me a lot of the times and it’s okay. I appreciate the strange commentary it makes and Peter Seller’s three roles are a standout. I also managed to answer a movie trivia question about it during a quiz so something good came out if it. Will I watch it again? I doubt it. But I’m glad I ticked it off my list.
Not as long as Dr. Strangelove but quite the mouthful to say. Also ironic how the entire title of the movie gives away the plot. Yet, knowing it, this is still one hell of a movie to watch. I of course finally watched it during my Sam Rockwell fangirling and I’m glad I did. Pitt is absolutely wonderful here and the movie has some brilliant cinematography. I will definitely try to watch it again in the future because it feels like a movie that has that rewatch quality to it. Plus, after watching Ad Astra (even though I disliked it), I’m quite fond of Pitt these days. Most of his filmography is filled with great movies too so it would be easy to go down the memory lane with Pitt’s movies. Anyway, I’m going off course – this movie, good, watch it!
