As an off-shoot of this question, do films like Back to the Future Part II and The Godfather Part II need colons?  The term "Episode descriptors" is a little vague.  I would consider it only applies in something like the example given in the rules: "Star Trek III: The Search for Spock" - not when it is just assigned a number to the film.

In the case of the Godfather sequels, there is no consistency across different websites and databases from the IMDb to Wikipedia, Rotten Tomatoes to the BBFC, with some having no punctuation in the title, some having a colon, some with a comma.

For localities outside the title's Country of Origin, there can only be one original release title based on the OT rule ("use the original release title"). There is no subjective interpretation involved.


Yes there is. You subjectively interpret "use the original release title" as "The official John Wick twitter site announced the original release title" instead of "use the title from the film's credits".

I think we have been discussing at cross-purposes, so I should clarify by stating I did not use the film's credits because the cover title and film credit title were the same.

The credit block on the back cover indicated a different title, so after researching I found several reliable references (official John Wick Twitter site, CARA Film Ratings, LIONSGATE distributor) that corroborated the title on the back cover was indeed the original release title.

This debate already took place over here. Maybe someone can dig the thread which lead to the current rule telling us to use colons.... ?
