My Movie Alphabet (part 2)

Mettel Ray - My Movie Alphabet

Mettel Ray over at Mettel Ray Movie Blog is hosting a blogathon that I’ve been excited to take part in!

I’m breaking this into two parts since I am away – Part 1

Here are the details from the source:

Thanks to a kind recommendation, I’m hosting my first ever Blogathon! The idea is simple but trust me when I say this, deciding on a list is far more difficult – are you ready for the challenge? Those who are brave enough to take on this task, check out My Movie Alphabet for inspiration, motivation and maybe some guidelines, post your alphabet on your blog and send the link to my e-mail: mettelray@msn.com. Before you know it, your alphabet will be featured on this page.

Nosferatu4[1]

N – Nosferatu

Iconic horror film and a mark of excellence for silent cinema.

One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest Nurse Ratched

O – One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest

I actually think I prefer the book, but I love Jack Nicholson in this.

Pee Wee's Big Adventure Large Marge

P – Pee Wee’s Big Adventure

Large Marge still scares the crap out of me.

Queen Latifah

Q – Queen Latifah

Yeah, I didn’t want to put Quentin Tarantino here…Queen Latifah is cool, right?

Roger Corman

R – Roger Corman

The man could make a movie with literally no budget in a week’s time. I never said they were GOOD movies…

Stanley Kubrick

S – Stanley Kubrick

Hands down my favorite director.

The Thin Red Line

T – The Thin Red Line

A beautiful film and I think my favorite from Terrence Malick.

Unforgiven

U – Unforgiven

My dad always tried getting me to watch Westerns, but this film made me want to watch Westerns.

Vertigo

V – Vertigo

Sight and Sound can’t be wrong, right?

Wages of Fear

W – Wages of Fear

One of the most intense cinematic experiences I’ve ever had.

X2 X-Men 2 Nightcrawler

X – X2

Not a whole lot of ‘X’ things to choose, but X2 was kinda good.

Yojimbo

Y – Yojimbo

One of my favorite Akira Kurosawa films and the original Fistful of Dollars.

Zombie 2 Zombi

Z – Zombi 2

I already listed a zombie movie with Dawn of the Dead but ‘Z’ is hard, OK?

  1. Yojimbo is awesome, Sanjuro is awesomer. There are quite a few Corman movies that are cool, my fave being Rock ‘n Roll High School.

  2. For Z you could’ve also gone with Pupi Avati’s Zeder, if you’ve seen it. Don’t get me wrong I adore Fulci and Zombi 2 but, you should really give Zeder a try. It’s so messed up!

  3. N – great pick
    O – ” ”
    P – haven’t seen it, but knowing it’s Tim Burton’s debut, I’ve been curious
    Q – Queen Latifah? She’s dumbed down a LOT lately…
    R – lol
    S – nice choice
    T – haven’t seen it yet….
    U – ” ”
    V – YES. great movie
    W – haven’t seen it….
    X – agreed
    Y – haven’t seen it, still….
    Z – …?

    PS: Did you get the most recent interview question? I’ve sent it a few times within the past few days.
