10 Movies!!!!!!!!!

Sometimes it's not enough to say what you mean. Sometimes you have to say what you mean forcefully!!!

And speaking the truth is fine, as far as it goes. But speaking truth at high volume will get you places!!!

So here are:

10 Movies With An Exclamation Mark In The Title

  1. Airplane! (1980)
  2. Hatari! (1962)
  3. It! The Terror From Beyond Space (1958)
  4. Moulin Rouge! (2001)
  5. Oklahoma! (1955)
  6. Oliver! (1968)
  7. The Rats Are Coming! The Werewolves Are Here! (1972)
  8. Salaam Bombay! (1988)
  9. Them! (1954)
  10. Viva Villa! (1938)

FUN FACT: The exclamation mark has its origins in the Latin word "io". Io was an expression of joy, and, I suppose, identical to our word "Yo!"

So don't say "Moulin Rouge!", say "Moulin Rouge Yo!"!

So the street gangs of LA were ahead of their time? :)

I love Them!
The final scenes in the sewers, where they are frying the ants with flamethrowers... Awesome. Eat your heart out Ripley.

I believe 'yo' has a similar meaning in Japanese.

And eat your heart out, James Cameron!

And they were bad ass, those ancient Roman gangs - with their drive by stabbings and rap music with every line ending in "-ius".

There's always Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill! Pure charm, unlike that smutty Oklahoma!
