haha I love Celebrate with Ferris. And I haven't seen Eraserhead, but isn't "In Heaven Everything is Fine" the tagline? I almost like that as a title.

In France, Bamboozled is called The Very Black Show.

Spike Lee said it sucks.

That's amazing.  

Working in sort of a backwards way, I remember being told that the literal English translation of the Chinese title for "Hard-Boiled" was "Hot Handed Cop of Death."

I can see how something like Boogie Nights or Collateral would be hard to translate, but... In the Bedroom? Lost Highway? Why can't we just literally translate these titles?

I was channel surfing last night and came across a Korean show called (in English) "She's Brave and Straightforward."  It appears to be some kind of "Sex and the City" type show, from what I could gather.

Knife in the Water is so much cooler than The Young Lovers.

Going the other way around, I always resented "Fucking Amal" becoming "Show Me Love" in the US.
