The movie was unbearably boring. The only reason I went to see it was because it was being projected digitally and I was curious what it would look like. It was too clean looking. I missed the graininess of celluloid.

ATTACK OF THE CLONES has got to be the A-1 retardo film title of the year. I mean really ... wtf!?!?!

There was a movie here in nowheresville called "Runteldat," which I thought at first might be Danish or something, but further inquiry revealed it to be black standup comedy of what the local review called the "rough" variety. Have no clue what the title is about, unless it's some kind of joke about ebonics.

Marc's list is great, except for Swimfan, which I think is a terrific title, probably much more interesting than the movie. You see, "swimfan" appears to be her internet moniker. You know what that is, hippie, right? I think it sounds 1) like a believable internet moniker; 2) catchy and rememberable (as opposed to memorable); and 3) vaguely sinister in context. A wonderful title which doesn't belong in your otherwise excellent list. And you've alluded to another, Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood, which may have been great for the book but which sucks as a movie title.

I have to agree with Ballistic: Ecks vs. Sever. What the hell is it? A video game?

It reminds me of "The Adventures of Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins." And ends.

Here's my list:

K-19, The Widowmaker
My Big Fat Greek Wedding
The Adventures Of Pluto Nash
Ballistics: Ecks vs. Sever
Swimfan

You're at the boxoffice, the ticket seller says
"what movie?"....you hesitate for a moment... its too humiliating to utter the title of the flick...
you mumble "The, the, the, Divine Sisterhood Of The Attack Of The Clones.
