The Alphabet Movie Meme

Our favourite films, from A to Z

Fletch over at Blog Cabins has started a new internet game called the Alphabet Meme. It’s pretty simple – you pick your favourite film for each letter of the alphabet – so we thought we’d join in too.

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. Movies are stuck with the titles their owners gave them at the time of their theatrical release. Examples: Return of the Jedi, Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring, Raiders of the Lost Arc.

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."

If you fancy coming up with your own, either post them on your own blog (remember to link back to Blog Cabins) or post them in the comments below if you don’t have your own spot on the web.

Here’s our list:
