Added some titles but most are blank, as I know they must be on there because they were big movies, but either I haven't seen them or I just don't know what to put.  Please suggest!

There's a couple of these I don't understand the meaning of, so I'm just asking for clarification to satisfy my curiosity:

- Friday Night Monster
- Top Marvel
- Spider-Man: Far From the Original
- Jumanji: The Old Dannys
- CGI Spaghetti

Sure, lol!
-Friday Night Monsters: A joke on Kyle Chandler's series, Friday Night Lights.  Kyle is in the movie.  I actually know him better from Early Edition, but since that's older I thought it might be risky to reference that.
-Top Marvel: Carol is in the Air Force, and in the trailer there was a "Need for speed" type of moment with another pilot.  So it's a play on Top Gun.
-Far From the Original: Suggested by Ed Jones, I'm assuming it means that it's quite different from the older Spidey films.
-The Old Dannys: The film will have Danny Devito and Danny Glover.
-CGI Spaghetti: Suggested by 15yearsIMDber, it's a joke on the CGI spaghetti used in the iconic "date" scene.

Hope that makes sense.  :)  There's one I just added that is supposed to be narrow (Gemini Man), but for those who get it it's super funny.  ;)

Oh, cool, thanks for explaining. :-D
But I have two sub-questions:

In the original Lady and the Tramp, the spaghetti were animated (by hand), and in the remake, they are animated (by CGI). So, what is so special about it? Both are animated spaghetti. Or is the CGI of said spaghetti so bad, that it deserves a mention? :-P (I haven't seen the film)

In your list, it says Spider-Man: Far from the Original, but in the suggestion made by Ed Jones (XLIX), it says Spider-Man: Far from Original. You've added a THE. That wouldn't be a problem, but it changes the meaning:
- Far from Original means ''unoriginal''
- Far from the Original means the opposite - ''different than the original film''

I'm just confused which of these was the original intent.

In fact, I'm also further confused by interpretations of both titles:

- in my opinion, Far from Original doesn't exactly gives credit to the film. To be honest, I didn't really like it (since Spider-Man is now essentially Iron Man), but the majority of the film was something we've never seen before in a Spider-Man film. It's flawed, sure, but unoriginal? :-/

- if it's Far from the Original, that could mean it's either a lot different than the first Spider-Man film (2002 version), or that it's a lot different than the first MCU Spider-Man film (2017 version). And furthermore, if it's so different than either of the two... isn't that the point of a sequel? To try and be different?

Maaan, I really went in too deep, because of a simple 'the'. :-D

A honest title for X-Men: Dark Phoenix - A Phoenix Dies... To Be Reborn Yet Again.

Phoenix is a mythical bird who is immortal; whenever it dies, it rises from its ashes, starting a never-ending cycle.

20th Century Fox's X-Men franchise first had the character of Dark Phoenix appear in 2006's X-Men: The Last Stand.
After that Phoenix died, it was ''reborn'' in 2019's X-Men: Dark Phoenix.
After that Phoenix died, it will certainly be ''reborn'' again, because Disney bought the right to the X-Men franchise from Fox, and Jean Grey (Dark Phoenix) is one of the main characters.

Funny and good point, but it sounds more like a phrase than a title.  I was wondering maybe 'Fifty Shades of Jean Grey", but I don't know if it's too "risque".  :)  Never seen FSOG, but I get the gist of it.

Lol. I think "Fifty Shades of Jean Grey" is really good and not too risqué at all.

In my humble opinion, "Fifty Shades of Jean Grey" sounds like a character study and a more interesting film than X-Men: Dark Phoenix.

'Good one, Narnia, with a lot of very funny titles. I don't think you need to include 'Ad Astra' or the Alita movie if you don't have anything for them. Neither were really popular compared to some of the movies on the list so leaving them out would not seem like an omission at all. Also, this could very likely get a few suggestions after going live so leaving a couple spots open probably wouldn't be a bad idea. 

Bravo on another fun poll. 
It's going to be difficult to vote for just one. : )

Thanks!  :D  I will probably vote for Gemini Man, as it is a deep reference to MST3000 and a 70's show, so I will show my support for that.  :)

Update:
There is still room for one more movie on the list, if anyone has a sugg (or an idea for Ad Astra).
And tell me if you think the one for It is any good!  I heard it had some comic relief in it, plus it stars Bill Hader, so...

Don’t add it because it will get your poll kicked off the featured poll page. So the best thing to do is to leave it alone. Oh congratulations on getting the featured poll status.
