Writing Wrongs: 10 Movie Titles with Bad Grammar



For all the considerable resources that go into marketing Hollywood movies, it would seem that scant attention is paid to checking the grammar and punctuation of film titles. Case in point, the new Star Trek, whose title omits a punctuation mark that not-so-subtly changes the meaning of the words. TIME copy chief Danial Adkison and copy editor Douglas Watson offer their professional judgment on some other suspect movie titles.

Hallucinations of the Prinsediran XIII: The Prayer Bank [Store Up Answers]

I for one am certain I am alone, but Moi for two, I know not where the words come from. Sitting alone and yet together with Moi, Moi said to me…

Let me [Moi] tell you about the Prayer Bank, a place where you can store up answers.

It is true you cannot trick God, yes, why not confess you are indeed trying to trick Him…faith! I’m just imagining He folds His arms and chuckles at that confession. My friend, you must endeavor to be a friend of God as well.

Now God and Money are [two] masters (Matt. 6:24]. So, why should you treat God way less than you treat money?

With God, plan ahead. Just like a bank policy, if you need money, it is easier to collect from the very amount you’ve saved. Anything extra [a loan] will require more letters, more time, more meetings, more handshakes, and more protocols.
Yes, same could be said for prayers.

Pray years ahead of time, think hard, foresee your needs and put them into prayers, for when troubles [needs] arise, it is easier to collect an answer from the little you saved up with God.

My favorite, Moi said, will be our daughter who we are expecting soon. Pray for her [K.K. Jemima], that she’ll be healthy, that she’ll be strong, that she’ll be talented, that she’ll be brave, that she’ll be Agradable [Kindhearted], that she’ll be unique, that she’ll be loved, that she’ll be born again, that she’ll be intelligent, that she’ll be safe, that she’ll go out and come in safely, that she won’t be hurt, that she’ll not be bitten or beaten or molested, that she’ll not be tortured, or flogged, or taken captive, that she’ll be a success, that she’ll not be involved in any form of accident or die prematurely.

Cast on time all your worries about her to God, yes, you know them all. There’s nothing new under the sun. Then watch Him give you the answers at the appropriate time. Live a miracle, be strong in faith.

And that is just an example, I cannot read your heart desires, neither can I make them known publicly; your future, your plans, your hopes, your family, your friends, your duties.

So then, sit, be calm, yes smile if you may, think, envision, foresee and pray. Store up answers for yourself hence it will be easier for you not to panic or “forget” to pray whenever any form of trouble seem to be taking over.

Thank you for banking with us 😉
