When the movie's title becomes an awkward line of dialogue.

This has long been a pet peeve of mine, especially when the film's title was not something that a normal person would say. If the movie is called Forrest Gump or Titanic, then you can't avoid it. But saying the title of the movie in the middle of a scene almost always takes you out of the movie for a moment. James Bond films are the worst offenders, as they always find a way to work in such off-the-cuff phrases such as 'tomorrow never dies' or 'die another day'. Ironically, while the word 'scream' is uttered only once in the first Scream, the original title 'scary movie' was uttered countless times. Near catastrophe was avoided. Anyway, I love that someone finally rounded a bunch of these up into one video.
