Vintage Cinemassacre name list

James / December 24th, 2011


Look what I found in an old filing cabinet. These are a couple scraps of paper from when I was trying to come up with a new production name, about 11 years ago approximately. At the time, it was called Cinematica, but I found out that there was TV studio that had the name already, so I decided to change it to something better. As you can see, I thought of a lot of names. I had no idea these scraps of paper still existed. I think it’s a neat find, because it’s the very first time I ever typed the name CINEMASSACRE.

    December 24, 2011 at 11:21 am

    Surely, Cinemassacre is the best. No shit, guys, this is really something different.

  • CodyLeinart

    December 24, 2011 at 11:33 am

    The only one I think would have been equally cool would have been Cinemafia,

    James and Mike – The Mobsters Of The Film Industry,

    Smackin’ bitches down and takin’ names ๐Ÿ˜€ haha

    Glad he chose Cinemassacre though….

    i liked cinemama and mostly because I immediately imagined a logo where theres a big mom coming out of a camera instead of a chainsaw. I see why you ditched that idea, mighta been harder to sell shirts man.

  • MarcoRossi

    December 24, 2011 at 11:56 am

    i would have voted CINEMACARONI

  • FredFuchedMeUp

    December 24, 2011 at 12:03 pm

    “Cinemarijuana” is fucking priceless!!!!!

  • JayRam

    December 24, 2011 at 1:38 pm

    You made the right decision sticking with Cinemassacre.

    I’m posting this again because I don’t know if you saw it in the last blog post but here you go. Hey James, hey Mike. I don’t know if you will have the time out of your busy days to check this out, but this is the answer James was looking for on the Zelda timeline, Nintendo finally answered. This is the translation of the the 25th anniversary book Nintendo released in Japan, with the official timeline=

    I liked cinemadness but cinemassacre is what we all know, love and recognize. Although cinemarijuana is pretty need lol. Might as well have a names such as cinemeth, cinebagging or cineinjections.

  • December 24, 2011 at 3:37 pm

    They’re all pretty damn good

  • federikotozzi

    December 24, 2011 at 5:11 pm

    This should be framed and put in a museum. Just kidding – Merry Christmas James, and fellow fans!

    Cape Cod, MA

  • Marvipe

    December 24, 2011 at 7:37 pm

    I like cinemadness and cinemaximum. but I also like Cinemassecre. I always assumed that it was called that because you really like slasher movies, or something.

  • December 24, 2011 at 8:24 pm

    So. Many. Fucking. Puns.

    My heart is failing me.

  • December 24, 2011 at 10:50 pm

    So basically you opened up the dictionary to MA and went down the list. ๐Ÿ™‚ But it worked! I’ll have to remember that next time I need a name….

  • nowhere4321

    December 24, 2011 at 11:28 pm

    I like Cinemaneur

  • DevinDixon

    December 25, 2011 at 12:21 am

    I am very partial to CINEMAD myself

  • Sensemann

    December 25, 2011 at 12:36 am

    I am somewhat surprised that “Cinemonolith” isn’t on the list. But you clearly made the right choice. Couldn’t imagine it any other way.

  • CraigMillar

    December 25, 2011 at 12:57 am

    I find it interesting that cinnemassacre happens to be at the top of the list on the side. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • CraigMillar

    December 25, 2011 at 12:59 am

    How about CINEMAPEEN?

  • OlaviPรถssi

    December 25, 2011 at 6:48 am

  • sterling.treadwell

    December 25, 2011 at 10:51 am

    @OlaviPรถssi. Hells yeah. Cinemac ‘n’ cheese all the way! Totally changes the meaning of the Kraft tent.. hehehe (sorry it wouldn’t let me reply to your comment, kept saying ” !” Undefined….

    • Zepthire

      January 1, 2012 at 5:49 pm

      @encey That was made me laugh loads. I wonder if half of these were seriously considered or if he was just listing words beginning with “Ma” xD

  • encey

    December 25, 2011 at 4:17 pm

    ps: Super Cinemario

  • December 25, 2011 at 4:28 pm

    You probably would have been sued by Cinemax if you used Cinemaxium. I’m surprised I didn’t find Cinemayhem up there.

    • December 26, 2011 at 11:43 am

      @Firewall_Philip_Hanan cinemayhem haha i like that.

  • indianajoel

    December 26, 2011 at 2:52 am

    Cinemama? Looks like Cooking Mama should have done something about movie and film for her next game though.

  • Anthony33

    December 26, 2011 at 5:20 pm

    Heh cool. Maybe if I ever start a production company, I’ll use one of those rejected names.

  • ReiKo

    December 27, 2011 at 3:48 am

    Cinemarijuana is the best! =D

  • robindegen

    December 27, 2011 at 7:40 am

    cinemadness would have been ok

  • FrankCabanski

    December 28, 2011 at 3:56 pm

    The name you eventually picked wasn’t very good. You should have picked Cinemassacre.

  • shadowgam3

    December 28, 2011 at 4:57 pm

    I Found it funny that U even considered Cinemarijuana.. I glad U choose Cinemassacre as Ur finally Choice.. Atleast I know that there was time in Ur life.. That U enjoyed for the finer things of life.. ๐Ÿ˜€

    • MikeCairns

      December 29, 2011 at 1:39 pm

      @shadowgam3 This is barely English. Reading this made my brain hurt.

  • Prophet Wing

    December 28, 2011 at 6:58 pm

    Mammoth Productions… sounds like the potential music-publishing arm of Cinemassacre. (Heck, if Saban and Warner could get away with it, why not?)

  • CalrissianFoxxSteele

    December 29, 2011 at 2:09 am

    Pretty fond of Cinemanana

  • david_wev

    December 29, 2011 at 5:11 am

    The name should really fit the sturdy ruggedness of the site, it should be called, Grooseland

  • December 29, 2011 at 9:08 am

    Some of the ideas are embarassing though ๐Ÿ˜‰

    You should do a Top 10 Druf Related Movies under the “Cinemarijuana Productions” name.

      @TweetAlexM I can just see it now… with such pseudonyms as “Hal Roachclip”…

    Thank God you didn’t get mock God with Cinemessiah.

    • AlphaBetaCool

      January 4, 2012 at 11:29 pm

      i mean that would be bad…..if god was real @Firewall_Philip_Hanan

        Well, it’s bad then.

      • Pappakassi

        January 8, 2012 at 1:27 pm


        Judging from James’ comments on the Bible games and… well… Ultra Mecha Death Christ, I’m pretty sure James doesn’t really give two sh*ts about god.

      • xeagaort

        January 8, 2012 at 4:35 pm

        @[email protected]_Philip_Hanan There is a cool new thing called “JOKING”…I think it applies here…not everything someone says is too be taken seriously, especially from some like James.

      • MarkusRussak

        January 17, 2012 at 7:25 am

        @[email protected] yeah let’s start a religious debate.

      • January 26, 2012 at 3:41 pm

        @[email protected][email protected] yeah, cause, you know, one of the sides HAS to give eventually ๐Ÿ˜› Look, neither atheists or theists are gonna give a single edge on their beliefs, so just SHUT THE FUCK UP and enjoy James’ work.

  • Mellowtrauma

    January 6, 2012 at 5:52 pm

    CineMAELSTROM!!!!! That would be some heavy duty shit.

    I’m rather entertained that you even thought of “Cinemad”

  • Mellowtrauma

    January 6, 2012 at 6:00 pm

    I think I’ve been successful in finding all of the potheads out there.

    Not hating on you guys, but it’s funny as hell to see everyone look at Cinemarijuana, and instantly think that it’s the greatest thing ever.

    By the way James, you said you were approximately 11? What would your mother say had you called it that? lol.

  • Mellowtrauma

    January 6, 2012 at 6:01 pm

    ok…11 years ago… makes more sense.

  • January 7, 2012 at 4:25 pm

    Since you review movies, TV shows, and video games, it’s kind of like a sandwich right? So you could have called the site Cinemanwich.

  • January 7, 2012 at 4:27 pm

    Cinemachismo would have been great.

  • Pappakassi

    January 8, 2012 at 1:42 pm

    Cinemachine would also have been great. Rolls right of your tongue, but I guess Cinemassacre was a more fitting name since you specialize in Horror flicks.

    But I’m also curious, why Cinemarijuana? Haha, was it just something you thought of the top of your head or did you get some “inspiration” for that one? xD

  • Exmordius

    January 9, 2012 at 5:00 pm

    Cinemacaroni would have been awesome.

  • Jyo

    January 11, 2012 at 12:42 am

    Cinemadness sounded awesome though

  • AVGNJunior

    January 11, 2012 at 2:34 am

    Seriously no love for Cinemafia? They would’ve been awesome. The Cinemassacre group as Cinemafia, a Flim Making Mafia. But Cinemassacre is the best just by the way it sounds and also how much it represents.

  • OdieMikes

    January 16, 2012 at 10:57 pm

    I hope you know I’m stealing Cinemacaroni
