Aprilleigh (aprilleighlauer) | 1053 comments I assume the standard rule that spaces determine words applies?

In other words, you must use "extra-terrestrial" instead of "extra," "wall-e" instead of "wall" and "spider-man" instead of "spider."

How do we deal with "Face/Off?"

Correct. Face/Off - no spaces - so would need to be Face/Off.

Kaora (ophelja) | 1132 comments Just want to verify Locke & Key, Vol. 2: Head Games will work for #70 Wargames(War games) because it matches games in the brackets?

Yes, that works. The movie is listed by both titles (Wargames and War Games) on the list.

Can words in subtitle of the movie be used? I.E., "road" in both Mad Max movies, #2 and #35?
