There's the Star Wars film where the Rebel Alliance defy the Empire with their innovative method of jumping around on one leg (A New Hop), the one where a hillbilly comes back to help them (Return of the Jed) and the one where the Empire retaliate by bringing in famous '80s television dog trainer Barbara Woodhouse (Revenge of the Sit - to be honest that one would work better if it had an exclamation mark on it, and if more people knew who Barbara Woodhouse was).
Or what about the one about the ultra-violent ginger-haired ape: A Clockwork Orang?
Or the one about the aircraft you're not allowed to board: Forbidden Plane?
Or the one about a Scottish policeman burned alive in a giant wooden replica of his mother: The Wicker Ma?
Or Edgar Allan Poe's poem about dance music: The Rave?
work is a vampire that sucks me dry
which is a metaphor
but still the reason I stuck a chair leg through my manager
Although that could be disqualified on the grounds of sounds less interesting not more. Unlike The Rave which sounds infinitely more interesting although it may be some while before I get the image of Poe waving glo sticks out of my head.
Talking of disqualification; orang - what kind of a word is that? you can't just take the "e"'s out things to make them more interesting you know, ask robert.
