My Cinematic Alphabet

Posted on April 8, 2011. Filed under: Memes and Blogathons, Ramblings | Tags: , , |

It’s meme time again folks! I caught this over at Ruth’s and firgured seeing as I haven’t posted much in a while I’d give it a whirl.

One favourite movie for each letter of the alphabet. Simples.

A is for Armageddon

B is for Benny and Joon

C is for Casino Royale

Because it converted me on Bond.

D is for Die Hard

E is for Edward Scissorhands

F is for Forrest Gump

G is for Ghostbusters

H is for Happy Feet

I is for Indiana Jones

J is for Jurassic Park

K is for Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang

L is for Lord of the Rings

M is for The Matrix

N is for Notting Hill

O is for O Brother, Where Art Thou?

P is for Pirates of the Caribbean

Q is for….um…I’ll get back to you on that one

R is for Romeo and Juliet

S is for Star Wars

T is for Toy Story

U is for The Untouchables

“That’s the Chicago way!”

V is for V for Vendetta

W is for Withnail & I

X is for X Men

Y is for Young Frankenstein

I’m cheating massively with this one as the only scene I’ve seen is the one pictured. But based on that alone, I know this film is brilliant.

Z is for Zoolander

Blue Steel.

Mostly this is the first film that came into my head beginning with that letter. But some letters were harder than others.

Wahoo!! Looks like we have quite a few in agreement here. Oh my, how could I forget LOTR!! I already had L.A. Confidential in mind but I could easily swap it w/ the epic trilogy.

Oh I LOVE that photo of Harrison as Indy… sooo darn masculine. If they ever reboot that series [what am I talking about, OF COURSE they’re gonna do it], he’d be a huge shoes to fill!

How cCOULD you forget LOTR?!

I really hope they don’t reboot Indy. It’s a classic. I think Crystal Skull proved that they should just leave it alone.

Quiz Show for Q? I actually have never seen it, but I hear its great.

Never even heard of it!

Cool idea. But with all the amazing A movies out there…. you chose Armageddon!?

I was actually struggling with A movies…and I like Aramgeddon! What would you suggest?

“Young Frankenstein” followed by “Zoolander” … genius, sheer genius.

Well, some that spring to mind for A for me are Apocalypse Now, Apollo 13, Alien, American Graffiti, African Queen, All the President’s Men

Meredith: Glad you approve šŸ™‚

Ian: Apocalypse Now is good, but given a straight choice I’d pick Armageddon. I did agonise over Apollo 13 but it lost in the end. I basically picked movies that I would always be in the mood to watch.


Someone else that has used Young Frankenstein!

I loved that as a child…

‘There wolf!’



I need to see the rest of that film, it’s wrong that I’ve only seen parts.
