The title of a film is very important. It needs to give you a hint as to what the movie is about, but still leave room for intrigue. There are some that have done this well- Eternal Sunshine of The Spotless Mind, There Will Be Blood- and some that haven’t – Three Days To Kill, anyone? Reddit imagined a world where the title of the film is the exact plot, and came up with a list of films would be almost unwatchable. A few of our favorites are below.

1. The Silence of the Lambs

2. Law Abiding Citizen

3. The Men Who Stare at Goats

4. Pitch Black

5. Rush Hour

6. The Fifth Element (would be Boron as hell)

7. All Quiet on the Western Front

8. 50 Shades of Grey

9. The Constant Gardener

10. Trainspotting

11. The Color Purple

12. Saturday Night Fever

13. Milk

14. Reservoir Dogs
Just a movie about some dogs chilling in a lake.

15. A Raisin in the Sun

16. The Shining
Just a single lamp.

17. 127 Hours

18. Grease

19. The League of Extrordinary Gentlemen
“After you.”
“No, after you, I insist.”
“No, after you, I must insist myself.”
REPEAT FOR TWO HOURS

20. The Big Sleep
