Using metaphors to represent a context or a person can be a great way to convey our messages, but it seems like not everyone can do it well.

Not only the content of the films, the weird analogies, and innuendos in these movies are also a funny topic for (some) people to laugh off. This article on Corner4men will list the top 8 confusing and weird bold Tagalog movie titles and explain why these movies' titles are strange and confusing.
Here are the top 8 movie titles that will confuse or make you feel uncomfortable:
Anakan Mo Ako - Story of a Tribe’s Sexual Custom
Instead of putting the characters in modern life back in the 90s, Anakan Mo Ako deserves a "seat" in our Filipino bold movies titles list because it is a little more creative than modern life. In detail, this movie put all of its characters in a hidden tribe living in a forest and having their sexual customs. The tribe has only one old dominant male living with many other young and nubile females.
Following this, all members of this tribe have to conform to the rule that the male can only mate with other females when his wife just gave birth to a child.
Because of this rule, the tension of other females is high, and everything started to become more complicated with the existence of a new male who got lost while exploring the forest of this tribe.
Specifically, this movie so bold is exploring the tribe customs and scenes of shows too much skin.

Masarap Habang Mainit - Analogy of “Monay”
As a Philipino, you must already know about a sweet bread called "Monay'' and its great taste.
But Masarap Habang Mainit - one of the Pinoy bold movie titles in our list, does not merely see Monay as a kind of bread. It is the analogy for a young lady who is also called "Monay,” who accidentally works in a bakery in the local area.
The film tries to depict Monay and the bread’s connection while explaining how the bread tastes much better when it is fresh out of the oven.
Moreover, this movie also made people feel horrible and embarrassed with inappropriate sexual innuendos related to the bread and baking bread.
Matamis Hanggang Dulo - “Sugarcane” Metaphor
Matamis Hanggang Dulo tells a story about a young and innocent girl who is a sugarcane stalk seller. She sells sugarcane to support her and her aunt's lives. Although the context is simple, the director tried his best to create a link between the girl and sugarcane link during the film.
After watching this movie, Philipinos started to see the word "sugarcanes" differently as they had never heard of this euphemism before. Hence, this movie is one of our "Pinoy bold movies titles” because it successfully added a new "meaning" to an object.
