Just Add The Quickening

Is it me, or would every movie sequel title be better if you add the words "The Quickening" at the end?

Only if Sean Connery was in it. Bush2/McCain: The Sickening!

Little Miss Sunshine: The Quickening.

Dammit, you're right!

Kind of like adding "in bed" at the end of a fortune cookie saying.

What I don't get is that at the end of the first Highlander, there could "be only one!" And yet there were more Highlander movies. Where'd those other guys come from--outer space?

Apocalypse Now: The Quickening. Scary!

Three Men and a Quickening
Police Academy 8: The Quickening
Yeah, you're right!

Also, I think it works for any "-ening":

Jumanji II: The Bloodening
Leprechaun IV: The Scarening
Kickboxer V: The Fightening
A Nightmare on Elm Street IX: The Donny Osmondening

The IR, just an FYI, there was a Leprechaun IV, and it took place in space. Hence the title -- Leprechaun IV: In Space

And of course, In Space would make any movie sequel title awesomer.

Maybe we can shoot for Godfather II: The Quickening In Space!

I used to like to add Electric Boogaloo to every sequel, but that's kind of played out.

Wow, thanks for the info Splotchy. I kind of thought that the Leprechaun team had exhausted their title-writing expertise when they came up with 'One Wedding and Lots of Funerals' (a film that, I'm sad to say, I own on preview VHS).

I know people who swear by the "Highlander" series. I never got it, but what else is new?

Of course it transcends movies as well!

Why, this morning I had some Nestle Quickening for breakfast. Delicious.
