What about Kidfried? I can't remeber ha was fried in the movie...
"Das Banegold" is even worst. Not very difficult to translate, it should be clear that the title is nonesence. I can't remember Bane being a river (if you know about Rheingold)
Neodämmerung is quite logical if you take the meaning of dawn as downfall and resurrection, very much like Götterdämmerung or the expressionistic peom-collection "Menschheitsdämmerung" by Kurt Pinthus, which also alludes to Götterdämmerung.
And therefore, this is not a pun but an allusion. And that's what I said in the original post.
But it still reads ridiculous between titles like "Men in Metal" or "Why, Mr. Anderson".
