American cunt

Recommended Posts

I'm just waiting for this to be used as a film name. I'm not sure why but something  deeply bugs me about the whole American -whatever- film title thing, its I dunno the sheer arrogance of the idea that no further context other that it is "american" is needed. If any Americans ever read this - you fucking cunts, why dont you come up with proper film titles.

the top of my head.

American Graffiti

American Gangster

American Pie 1, 2, 3, 4, blah, blah.

American Psycho

American Gigolo

American Beauty

I am sure that there are some more but that does not seem that many titles altogether.

If you mean titles with 'America' in there somewhere then there would be a heck of a lot more. I don't see the problem really. Until the Chinese market opened up to Hollywood the biggest market for US films was the US itself so it makes sense to target the audience with titles that will appeal to them.

I think this could be a conspiracy.

Worse when they use an American reference that nobody gets, like the name of some US domestic hero nobody else has heard of

 

On an American forum I am on they are starting a sweepstake this week for which team they think will win the football this year. I keep saying things like 'Chelsea' or 'Manchester United' and it seems to be flying over their heads.

How about 'The girl......' Too many titles around starting with that! 

Especially on pornhub.

heard a podcast with Jon Ronson recently. Apparently these days porn titles are named according to most searchable terms. He visited the set of 'step daughter cheerleader orgy' when researching a book.

I typed American into the search at RottenTomatoes and it came back with 1625 hits for films with the word in the title. Sadly it found none when I searched for fims called  American Cunt. Clearly a gap in the market for an enterprising movie maker. Maybe the North Koreans are working on something along those lines.

Not even a porno - surely not?

imdb has one for 2016.  http://www.imdb.com/title/tt6297574/

But I'm sure there are also some specialist films out there with that title.

Anyway, re. the concept of boring titles -- it is only so that they can appeal to boring filmgoers.  Like many non-understandable things, they're just doing it because at least some people respond positively.

I have a conspiracy theory regarding Jon Ronson, and that theory is that he's a twat. It's not very exciting, as conspiracy theories go, but I'm 100% confident that I'll be proved right in the long run.
