The Climax is in the Title
*SPOILERS in the Descriptive Texts Some titles get their full meaning when the movie reaches its climax.

So, which climactic moment best met the expectations you made from the title? Discuss here Titular settings and protagonists are not included as they're expected to be part of the climaxes.
