Tense Movie Moments
Alfred Hitchcock once explained perfectly the difference between surprise and suspense. When a bomb under a table goes off, that's surprise. When we know the bomb is under the table but not when it will go off, that is suspense. For these moments in film, we found ourselves in a state of sheer tense and anticipation, as we relentlessly bit our nails nervous of what may ensue. The culmination of the event was overshadowed by its uneasy build up to it. There are quite a few, so this list has been narrowed down mostly by having some of our users here at IMDb pick their favorites. Which of these memorably tense moments in a film had you holding your breath the most? After voting, you may discuss the poll here.

Grammatically Incorrect Movie Titles
Every year or so, there comes along a movie that just couldn't get the grammar or spelling of its title correct. Doesn't that just drive you mad?! Sometimes the filmmakers do it on purpose, and they do have artistic license to do so, but we also have licenses to be grammar police. For titles like "Me and Orson Welles" or "Marley & Me" that are only giving us part of the full statement, there's really a 50/50 chance that they have it correct, so let's give them the benefit of the doubt. But the rest aren't going to get away with it. Which movie title, with grammar and/or spelling mistakes, bothers you the most? For those outside of the U.S., some of you are lucky enough to have had the title corrected upon release in your country. For those situations, the original U.S. title is also given in the description. Discuss here: http://www.imdb.com/board/bd0000088/thread/224289914
