So I have this movie script I want to start pitching to major studios. The only problem is that I can't come up with a name for the film. Can you help me out? Below is a description of the opening scene.

An Indonesian crime lord is sitting in his living room, sipping coffee. Two of his henchmen are in the next room rehearsing a script. The others are playing a board game.

A loud noise approaches from a distance. A man driving a motorcycle pulls into the driveway, parks his vehicle, and puts out his cigarette. He walks up to the door and knocks.

"Who is it?" asks the crime lord in the local language.

The man cracks his knuckles, answers "The garbage collector", and kicks down the door.

So, any ideas how to name this film?

    $\begingroup$ Is it worth protecting this puzzle? I feel people are just giving movie titles at this point without explanations, even though the correct answer is several hours old. $\endgroup$ – El-Guest Aug 9 '18 at 19:43

I think the title should definitely include the word

Java

Because this word is related to many aspects of the opening scene:

The Indonesian crime lord might be from Java, Indonesia
He sips coffee, for which an AmE slang term is "java"
Two of his henchmen are rehearsing a script. Perhaps not a movie script but Javascript?
The others are playing a board game. Perhaps Java?
Surely too the motorcyclist is smoking Russian Java Cigarettes.
Finally, the Garbage Collector arrives to remove outdated references in languages such as Java.

Also, it's a bit of a stretch but perhaps the Motorcycle is from:

The company Jawa Moto

  • $\begingroup$ Since the title includes "definitely coffee" it might be in the direction of coffeescript. (a preprocessor language for javascript) $\endgroup$ – Umbozz Aug 9 '18 at 12:27

    $\begingroup$ There is also a language called rot13(Wninarfr) for the third paragraph $\endgroup$ – user44966 Aug 9 '18 at 12:56
  • $\begingroup$ @Umbozz "definitely" there will be a large amount of "coffee" in a movie about wnin-cebtenzzref (rot13) $\endgroup$ – P. Siehr Aug 9 '18 at 14:33

    $\begingroup$ LOL, Murderccino sounds great. "Double espresso, some milk foam, blood of my enemies..." $\endgroup$ – jafe Aug 9 '18 at 14:02
  • $\begingroup$ Welcome to Puzzling.SE! This is a good answer, but could definitely use some explanation (see EightAndAHalfTails' answer, above) as to why your answer is correct. Usually (from what I've seen), the answer is important but the explanation is at least as important as the answer itself! $\endgroup$ – El-Guest Aug 9 '18 at 14:04
  • $\begingroup$ (@jafe, I personally enjoyed both Murderccino and Grounds for Vengeance, that last one sounds like the subtitle of the next Die Hard movie) $\endgroup$ – El-Guest Aug 9 '18 at 14:06

Perhaps this could work:

The Deadly Blend

    $\begingroup$ While this appears to be a perfectly suitable name for the film, it does need more explanation as to why it is the best answer in the context of the puzzle. $\endgroup$ – Ian MacDonald Aug 9 '18 at 19:18

Definitely you should go for

"Java - the Hunt"

  • $\begingroup$ @El-Guest Does "Java - the Hunt" represent something real? Looks like it is a good pun but a bad answer... $\endgroup$ – xhienne Aug 9 '18 at 20:38
  • $\begingroup$ @xhienne I thought it was a pun on Jabba the Hutt. At any rate, I stand by my comment at the top of this page; I think the post should be protected to stop random additional answers (such as this one and all of the non-accepted answers) from filtering in long after the correct answer has been given. $\endgroup$ – El-Guest Aug 9 '18 at 20:41
