When Sylvester Stallone announced his newest action film would be called "Bullet to the Head," snarky film fans around the world immediately launched into sarcasm mode, suggesting that the title is what people in the audience would be begging for after watching it. Because, seriously, that title on a Stallone movie? That's just asking to be mocked.
Luckily for Stallone, though, it turns out the movie isn't so bad after all, which is good news for movie buffs but bad news for headline writers everywhere. But while "Bullet to the Head" may have gotten away with an iffy title, not every film is so lucky. Get More »

By now you've probably seen the ad for Sylvester Stallone's "Bullet to the Head" in which the following exchange happens:
[Stallone murders a bad guy.]
Stallone sidekick (aghast): "You don't just kill a guy like that!"
