    Default Help with Film Site Name

    I'm busting my brain and having some trouble, so I figured I'd ask for input.

    I want to start blogging about films, since I spend time writing down my thoughts on them anyway. Unfortunately, I'm having trouble coming up with a catchy title that hasn't been taken on WordPress or elsewhere.

    Ideas that are already gone:
    - Cinematrix
    - FlickChick


    If I wanted to be outrageous, I'd call it FilmWhore [Edit: Dammit that already exists too... and filmslut too!], but I'm not sure that's the kind of branding I'd like.

    Any ideas? I want it catchy, easy to remember, and not yet taken.

    I don't plan on over-writing the reviews. Ebert had a good length for his, and he kind of touches points and concepts rather than doing plot descriptions. I might occasionally write articles about a movie (for example, I once wrote an essay about Clarice's father figures in The Silence of the Lambs) or an overview on a particular actor or movie company's offerings.

    Or, if you know me, is there a way you can think of me to slant the reviews or a gimmick that would be appropriate and unique? (Siskel and Ebert had their Thumbs Up / Thumbs Down, for example.)

    Consider this a brainstorming thread.

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    FilmBandit? PictureSamurai? I don't know. Not very creative this evening.

    But please post a link when you finally set it up.
    I enjoy reading your opinions.

    Film Fatale
    Final Girl
    MacGuffin Girl
    The Reliable Narrator
    Chewing Over the Scenery
    The Reluctant Anti-Hero (or The Accidental Anti-Hero)

    Or slightly more generic:

    Buzz Track
    The Back Lot
    The Money Shot
    The Forth Wall
    Lost the Plot

    Do you have a favourite genre or film? You could do one referencing something, like a famous quote.

    Use Google adsense Keyword tool to see what people are googling for, and pick a phrase, rather than a name , that does not have a lot of competition, yet has a decent amount of searches for it. Register that as your domain (get .com! And if you can .net, .org to refer to the .com one) and Google will love you <3

    if you want this to be a personal blog, or if you want this to become an authority site rather than a niche site, then picking a catchy name like Squidoo, Yahoo or Google, works too as it will become a brand if you are successfull. You will have to make up for the SEO juice elsewhere then though.
