They don't even get shipwrecked in order for it to be called Chipwrecked! If it'd been called, Alvin & The Chipmunks: Stupid Fucking Chipmunks Get Sucked On A Goddamned Kite, THERE we go!!

Notice how she (Lyranna) said it was a "dimensional portal". As in, a portal to world on an alternate dimension, as opposed to, I dunno, A FUCKIN' "PORTAL OF TIME!" In fact, she mentions specifically several times in this movie that time travel is in no way involved. Now, you could argue we're just talking a minor semantic detail, but I would argue that it's only the fucking title.

I mean, a portal to parallel Earths? What's next, we're gonna run into one of the Sliders comin' the other way? (Kari Wurther appears, massive spit take from Noah)

...couldn't we just call it Amnesia: Revelations or something?

From what I understand, Final Fantasy II, at the time of its Japanese release, wasn't released in the US, neither was Final Fantasy III. But Final Fantasy IV came out here, and because we didn't have II or III, it wouldn't have made sense to call it IV. So what do they do? They call it II. Now, Final Fantasy V wasn't released here either. So when VI came out, that became III. Final Fantasy III also happens to be one of my all time favourite games on the Super Nintendo. And I remember that after that, Squaresoft started releasing the next Final Fantasy games on Playstation. Things changed and now they weren't fucking with the titles any more. So when Final Fantasy VII came out, they just called it Final Fantasy VII. And that's where the confusion began. I wondered, "What the fuck happened to IV, V, and VI?" But what I really should have been wondering, little did I know, "What the fuck happened to II, III, and V?". And once I figured that out, I was like, "So there were other Final Fantasy games we didn't know about? I was playing VI all along and not III?" What a bunch of fucking bull fuck!

The war will not stop with Rambo: First Blood Part II. It will escalate to Rambo III. It should really be called Rambo: First Blood Part III, but then the Rambo movie titles never made sense. And neither does war. Abed Nadir, Facebook status update.
