What is it with Lame names these days.

First Dark of the Moon, then Dark Knight Rises (though that one is growing on me). It's like the same guy is coming up with all of these comic bookish names. All very hokey.

In a way I like the names, in another way I can see how they are generic.

This is something id expect to see as a PSN name when playing COD, not a Hollywood film lol.

darklordzor2227d ago

It does sound more like a video game title doesn't it?

Soldierone2226d ago

Yeah from Sega or something. I was thinking more like peoples online names, you could see " Ghost Protocol" running around COD couldnt you?

darklordzor2226d ago

Something along the lines of a Tom Clancy game or something like that. Hell even a Mission Impossible game.

I hope the name doesn't degrade the quality at all! Im a big Mission Impossible fan and cant wait to see this one. The last was leaning into the wrong direction, but pulled through midway and was actually pretty good.

darklordzor2227d ago

I just don't really understand the full need to change the title. It still has Mission Impossible in the title, so what's the diff between this and a number? If they weren't all interconnected anyway it shouldn't be an issue.

Soldierone2226d ago

4 is generally a bad number so companies tend to change things up or add something to the name to hide it. Its just one of those things people believe in lol.

darklordzor2226d ago

Yeah I guess, but it's not like they really made an improvement. I'm sure part of it has to do with them trying to switch lead actors, so maybe this Ghost Protocol will be the start of a new series, fading Tom Cruise out.

I personally think Ghost Protocol is a fantastic title, he is a ghost, following his protocol. I think it fits. The Dark of the Moon on the other hand..meh

Nothing works on the Dark of the Moon. I'm not saying Ghost Protocol is bad, it's just kind of hokey and cartooney. It gives off that Saturday morning cartoon show vibe.
