Disambiguation or, "puttin' stuff in (parentheses)"

Here's Wikipedia's overly technical description. Just consider what they call the "Primary source". How likely is the primary source to be confused with other sources (books, comics, characters)? Look at it this way, when you're having a conversation with someone about "Aliens", "Predators", or even just "Alien", or "Predator", there's a good chance you might have to clarify whether you mean the movies, the creatures from the movies, or the creeps you saw on Chris Hansen's show. And no one would blame you for mixing your "Alien vs. Predator" with your "Aliens vs. Predator". On the other hand, Alien 3, Predator 2, Alien Resurrection, and Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem (sheesh!) sound an awful lot like movie titles. Only spin-offs from these primary sources require disambigs, things like: Predator 2 (novel), Alien 3 (comic), or Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem (commemorative home pregnancy test). So unless the next movie, comic, etc. features a character named "Alien 3" fighting a character named "Predator 2" (hmm... fanfic idea?), my feeling is we should try to avoid disambigs in article titles unless absolutely necessary.

Thus the worst Film so far

Anybody else happen to be dissapointed by this film? Necromorph-X 18:51, September 18, 2010 (UTC)

I am just wandering why is this films subtitle called Requiem?Crimson head 98 (talk) (Contribs) 21:57, June 24, 2013 (UTC)

Because they thought it sounded cool, I'm guessing. The dictionary definition has nothing to do with the events of the film.--Leigh Burne (Talk) (Contribs) 12:46, December 11, 2013 (UTC)
Yeah, "Requiem" is a catholic mass that honors the dead. Maybe because a lot of people die? Just a guess. And yes, I was very disappointed by this film. ): Iamtheravager (talk) (Contribs) 13:03, May 23, 2016 (UTC)iamtheravager
