I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

That's how I know that my titles were successfully pretentious.

If there's a general agreement that the quiz is too hard, then I'll give the answers.

But pixote's title sounds like Thelma and Louise to me.

Okay, here's the answers:

1. Audition  (She enjoyed his misery)
2. Delicatessen  (all of France was hungry)
3. A Serious Man (because the professor was useless "I didn't do anything")
4. The Prestige ("unpredictable magicians")

Ha!

I have a strange case of ennui at the moment.


@oldkid, I too put in at least 10 minutes, and see now that I didn't have a ghost of a chance at getting yours! Fun trying though. :)

I do seem to equate pretention with being grumpy don't i?
