Included in this week's new releases is Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium, a film I was sure would be retitled before being introduced to the public. Alas, it was not, and if it fails at the box office, there's a high likelihood that the title will be blamed. Of course, it isn't the worst movie title in history. The contenders for that honor are featured in a list over at MSN Movies, written up to "celebrate" this week's addition to the bad name hall of fame. The MSN writer vows never to see Magorium simply because he or she refuses to say the title out loud (you could see it without stating the name, if you buy your tickets online). Personally, I wouldn't mind asking for a ticket to the movie, but I'm apt to accidentally call it Food Emporium, since that's what always comes up in my mind when I'm thinking about the Dustin Hoffman/Natalie Portman Willy Wonka rip-off.

For some reason MSN's top ten worst film titles includes Octopussy, which I'm sure I'm not alone in thinking is in fact one of the BEST movie titles ever (and best title fonts ever). I also have a soft spot for titles Gigli, Operation Dumbo Drop and one of the runners-up, The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. I would probably substitute those with Ballistic Ecks vs. Sever, BlackMale, K-19 The Widowmaker and K-PAX (maybe I just hate K-titles, which now make me think of K-Fed), all of which were included in another bad-movie-title list on Retro Crush from 2003. No list is perfect, though, and for some reason Retro Crush actually hates on longtime favorite Breakin' 2: Electric Boogaloo (it's bad, but it's also so good!). Other nominees for the worst title of all time can be found at Wanderlist (perfect example: The Englishman Who Went Up a Hill But Came Down a Mountain) and Mutant Reviews (more hatin' on Breakin' 2? pffft!). So, what is your pick for worst movie title ever?
