Live Poll: Which Thriller Would Make the Worst Name for a Retirement Home?

A little black comedy never hurts, and the poll means no disrespect to our seniors... which of the 400 movies nominated for the top 100 Most Heart-Pounding American Movies would make the worst name for a retirement home? (in a humorous way)

It's not the first time to tell this, but such kind of polls is not for wide audience. Whenever we play with one-language titles as the target for poll, a great part of voters make unconscious choice. Let's take the listed Die Hard as a simple example to explain how the voters are going to understand the title under question:

As we can see, sometimes the meaning turns to opposite for this poll, and may be just not understood in other cases.

Well, I certainly wouldn't like to live in a retirement home called "Soylent Green"!

I had to do a double take when I saw an online add for this company. At least they had the sense not to package any of their products in a green colored container.
