Boo! One-Word Movie Titles Take Over the Cineplex

by

And the reason has to be that this way they can cram more titles on the marquee, thereby attracting more customers!

All at once we have the following monosyllabic titles hitting the boards in a rush of inarticulateness:

Paul

Hop

Wrecked

Trust

Insidious

Super

Rubber

Limitless

Rango

Hanna

Arthur

And God knows what else!

Hollywood suddenly has marbles in its mouth and is tragically unable to complete a sentence, or even a phrase.

And this crazy trend is making people’s conversations even shorter than they used to be:

“Wanna see Trust?” “No, I already bought tickets for Hop.”

It’s insidious, all right.

Bring back the days of Something Wicked This Way Comes.
