Opening in Chicago, 03/02


I was busy this morning, and it’s a slow week with nothing of much interest anyway, so I’m going to make this very brief. I’ll have my top 10 list of 2011 up sometime over the weekend or early next week.

I do have one extremely pedantic question this week though, which is, why is Tim and Eric’s Billion Dollar Movie listed on the IDMb under its full title? As far as I know, it’s always been their policy to drop the possessive from the title, e.g., Bram’s Stoker’s Dracula becomes just Dracula. In this case, Tim and Eric are actual people and this is their movie, so why isn’t the IMDb title simply Billion Dollar Movie? This case seems very similar to me to Dave Chappell’s Block Party, which is a case where I think the possessive is very much an indispensable part of the title, but which is nonetheless on IMDB as simply Block Party.

The Lorax (trailer) – animated not-really-Seuss
Project X (trailer) – party movie
Tim and Eric’s Billion Dollar Movie (trailer) – spoiler alert … it didn’t really cost a billion dollars

  1. Today is Dr. Suess’s birthday. I imagine he’s spinning in his grave seeing how The Lorax is being used as a tie-in to 70 different products.
