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: firstname.lastname@example.org. Before you know it, your alphabet will be featured on this page.
N – Nosferatu
Iconic horror film and a mark of excellence for silent cinema.
I actually think I prefer the book, but I love Jack Nicholson in this.
P – Pee Wee’s Big Adventure
Large Marge still scares the crap out of me.
Q – Queen Latifah
Yeah, I didn’t want to put Quentin Tarantino here…Queen Latifah is cool, right?
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…
S – Stanley Kubrick
Hands down my favorite director.
T – The Thin Red Line
A beautiful film and I think my favorite from Terrence Malick.
U – Unforgiven
My dad always tried getting me to watch Westerns, but this film made me want to watch Westerns.
V – Vertigo
Sight and Sound can’t be wrong, right?
W – Wages of Fear
One of the most intense cinematic experiences I’ve ever had.
X – X2
Not a whole lot of ‘X’ things to choose, but X2 was kinda good.
Y – Yojimbo
One of my favorite Akira Kurosawa films and the original Fistful of Dollars.
Z – Zombi 2
I already listed a zombie movie with Dawn of the Dead but ‘Z’ is hard, OK?
