The Alphabet Meme

Hiya, folks. I know this should be Men of Action Monday, but I'm not feeling too well. So instead I wanted to post this. We'll catch up with Steve McQueen in The Hunter very soon, but in the meantime,I was tagged by the good Rev. Phantom from Midnight Confessions and Lisa Bee at Horror Happenings to take part in The Alphabet Meme project started by The Blog Cabins . I think I went a little off course with what they were asking for. They wanted A-Z of peoples favorite films. I went with A-Z of films I really want to get around to covering soon. Many of them I have seen and really love, but many I have not. Anyhow here's my list and the original rules to the meme.

Aliens
Blue Velvet
Cannonball Run II
Duck Soup
Every Which Way But Loose
From Russia With Love
Girl Hunters
House of 1000 Corpses
Idiocracy
J-men Forever
King of Comedy
Love Actually
Motorama
No Country for Old Men
Ocean Drive Weekend
Pink Flamingos
Quills
Red Sun
Star Trek VI:The Undiscovered Country
Touch of Evil
Uturn
Vice Academy
Who killed Roger Rabbit
Xanadu
Yellowbeard
Zardoz


The Rules

1. Pick one film to represent each letter of the alphabet.

2. The letter "A" and the word "The" do not count as the beginning of a film's title, unless the film is simply titled A or The, and I don't know of any films with those titles.

3. Return of the Jedi belongs under "R," not "S" as in Star Wars Episode IV: Return of the Jedi. This rule applies to all films in the original Star Wars trilogy; all that followed start with "S." Similarly, Raiders of the Lost Ark belongs under "R," not "I" as in Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark. Conversely, all films in the LOTR series belong under "L" and all films in the Chronicles of Narnia series belong under "C," as that's what those filmmakers called their films from the start. In other words, movies are stuck with the titles their owners gave them at the time of their theatrical release. Use your better judgement to apply the above rule to any series/films not mentioned.

4. Films that start with a number are filed under the first letter of their number's word. 12 Monkeys would be filed under "T."

5. Link back to Blog Cabins in your post so that I can eventually type "alphabet meme" into Google and come up #1, then make a post where I declare that I am the King of Google.

6. If you're selected, you have to then select 5 more people.

Here's are my tags:

Ryan at Blog of the Realm
Igloo of the Uncanny
Gidorah
The Bonebreaker
Horror Queen

  1. Already put mine up. Glad to see we overlapped on Duck Soup.

    I'm betting that Q: The Winged Serpent shows up on a lot of lists.

  4. Cool list! I was curious to see what you'd come up with. Although, I can't believe you want to see Xanadu. It's got a roller disco, dude!

  5. I think Xanadu comes down to a lack of "X" films. I actually had to make a choice between X the Unknown and The X from Outer Space; tough choice—Hammer Horror of kaiju? I settled with Hammer this time.

  6. Great List LB! :-)
    I will be looking forward to reading quite a few of these reviews!

    As for the Tag - no hard feelings if I pass, I hope...?
    (just not my thing really)

    P.S. I hope that you are feeling better!

  7. I knew this would come up. I acctually like Xanadu. I mean hot chicks on roller skates (especially ONJ when she was still hot) and cheesy music and sets. This is the stuff dreams are made of.

    And no big deal breaker. Thanks for tkaing a look at mine

  8. Okay, I can see where you're coming from. Plus, it's got Gene Kelly still cutting an impressive figure on the dance floor. So, there's that too.
