The Climax is in the Title
*SPOILERS in the Descriptive Texts Some titles get their full meaning when the movie reaches its climax. Of course, sometimes, we expect the titular 'plot element' to play a key role at the climax, sometimes, we don't even know what the title means (is it literal or symbolic?) until that very part but either ways, the film's final impact is twice more satisfying because it's both emotionally rewarding and it gives the title its meaning. 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.
