||this is one of one of my pet peeves, movie titles (also titles of any other conceptual thing: raves, clubs, other events, fine art works, books, et cetera) that are actions being performed. towering inferno, the crying game, working girl, and crouching tiger hidden dragon, don't fit in this category, because the words in them that look like verbs are actually adjectives that serve to modify the nouns in the titles. so i say there is nothing wrong with that. but the action titles really need to end.
