Wow, that's an interesting question. Will need to think about it and choose a title which immediately got me interested (and likely delivered).

Not sure how to directly best address this question.  One shouldn't actually drop ones favorite movie or very very popular films (their answer maybe biased towards the film itself rather than the actual title) if they in fact don't find the title by itself as mysterious and compelling as the question (to me) seems to imply.

Don't know if I should look to the future and post titles I have yet to see.  Or dive into my ratings history ... and not sure how to... suss out which title best qualifies.  Spirited Away is in my top favorite films of all time... but I can't say the title by itself ... really hits the point of this question.


My two choices (and I shall be sticking with it):
Leviathan (2014)
And one anime I am wildly anticipating later this year.  The title is enigmatically poetic... 1/3 of a possible haiku (depending on its original Japanese title?):
Night Is Short, Walk On Girl

Stephen,

Best way to find a favorite title will be diving into old memories. :D
I had no idea who Tarantino guy is when I first heard about Pulp Fiction. But I watched it because that title made me curious... (QT's titles always has this thing on me)

But also as a film I really like, Saving Private Ryan (title) did the exact opposite. I didn't watch it right away because of that title. (I don't think of it as a very attractive title) :P

My favourite title is Let Sleeping Corpses Lie, but the title on IMDB keeps getting switched back and forth to its lame alternative title.  https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0071431/?ref_=nv_sr_1

I'm gonna make 2 more suggestions since my first one probably won't work for that reason.
Also:
The Lost Boys: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0093437/?ref_=nv_sr_1
The Hills Have Eyes https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0077681/?ref_=tt_rec_tt

Let Sleeping Corpses Lie is just showing up as that awful Living Dead at Manchester Morgue crap, and many people won't notice if you put it in the description. You could replace it with Blood and Black Lace (1964). I'm high maintenance

For translated foreign film titles, I'll add English title as a note. :D

Is IMDb using these same preferences in settings to show titles in polls also?

1. Le Cercle Rouge

(Melville's movies have some of the best titles)

2. Ghost in the Shell

The first title that came to my mind was Pulp Fiction.
Great minds think alike :)

I really like this poll. I did a series of polls about titles a few years ago. I'm a writer so I just love words, lol. I'm having a hard time deciding but I'll definitely submit one or two when I decide. Silitonga chose one that might have been in the running for me: The Silence of the Lambs

Right now, I'm thinking 'To Kill a Mockingbird' and 'Do the Right Thing' but I know I'm forgetting many others. I've always thought 'The Shape of Water' is wonderful, too. Yep, I'll take some time to deliberate, lol.
