    part 3 of 5.

    :lol:
    if you're making a movie or mini-series, why give a name that screams "boring"?

    there are tons of movies, many of them probably very good, that i'll never watch because the name alone puts me to sleep.

    Because it happens to be a remake of a classic Joan Crawford movie by that name?

    The original "Mildred Pierce" was one of my mother's favorite movies. We were not allowed to talk to or interact with her when it was on.

    Michael Clayton is a shitty name for a really good movie. It is also the ok name for a couple of underwhelming NFL wide receivers.
