A little black comedy never hurts, and the poll means no disrespect to our seniors... which of the 400 movies nominated for the top 100 Most Heart-Pounding American Movies would make the worst name for a retirement home? (in a humorous way)

Did not check if any of these had the thriller attachment.
Maybe you could lift that restriction?

It's not the first time to tell this, but such kind of polls is not for wide audience. Whenever we play with one-language titles as the target for poll, a great part of voters make unconscious choice. Let's take the listed Die Hard as a simple example to explain how the voters are going to understand the title under question:

As we can see, sometimes the meaning turns to opposite for this poll, and may be just not understood in other cases.

I had to do a double take when I saw an online add for this company. At least they had the sense not to package any of their products in a green colored container.
