Film Titles That Are Complete Sentences

#1

Post by Local Hero -- aka MestnyiGeroi » August 10th, 2013, 5:37 am

A post in another thread had me wondering how many film titles can be named that are grammatically complete sentences (subject and predicate). For example, They Made Me a Fugitive is a complete sentence. And while it is shorter, They Live is also a complete sentence (again, subject and predicate).

So how many can we name?

RULES: Post one film title at a time. No poster can post two films in a row.



SO:

1. They Made Me a Fugitive
2. They Live

This is not a complete sentence. There is no verb there.

No, not a complete sentence. It would need to be something like, This is the skin I live in. Instead, it's like a subject with no predicate.

Why wouldn't you choose:

it even has punctuation.
