Movies That Dare Not Speak Their Names: Part Two

Remember a few months ago when I complained about movies that don't say their title within the dialogue? "World War Z" was one of the offenders.

At the time, I suggested some dialogue that would have fixed the problem:

NAVY SEAL COMMANDER 
Zombie starts with the letter "Z," and they're all over the world. 

 BRAD PITT
It's like...World War Z.

Anyway, I finally got around to reading the book. Guess what? "World War Z" is named in the first sentence. (It wasn't as elegant as my approach, but I'll take it.)

See, folks. This is why books are better than movies.
