A Movie meme? Yeah, baby! Yeah!

A new shiny penny for Jason for tagging me on this.

A gotta find 5 people though.

Here are 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 Lord of the Rings 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.

A fish named WandaAnnapolis (although I didn't see it)
Big Lebowsky
Escape from LA
Fear and loathing in Las Vegas
Gone with the wind
I heart Huckubees
Kiss the girls
Lord of the rings
Neverending Story
Over the top
Pirates of the Carribean
Qunatum of solace
The Replacements
Silence of the lambs
That thing you do
V for Vendetta
Wyatt Earp
XXX (or what the call the triple x with Vin Diesel, does that count?)
Young Frankenstein
Zack and Miri make a porno

The five lucky winners are (drum roll, i don't know 5 people apologies if somebody doesn't want to be here):

You're supposed to, ya'know, inform me when you tag me. And I don't usually do memes but this one looks fun...but I shall not pass it on except by those who volunteer.

Oh, BTW, I just noticed that "90 years ago" for updating on No Crying in the War Room". LMAO.

Oh, BTW #2. Doesn't A Fish Called Wanda break rule #1?

Ilya said...

Yep, Nathan is right on your A. Interesting list, by the way. I did mine in a hurry, without much thinking, but we match only on the hardest-to-pick letters Q and X, and there is only one entry on your list that I could have considered instead of what I did put in (and Lord of the Rings which I almost put in, but decided to keep to my Bond theme). Our cinematic tastes are quite dissimilar.

Nathan, my bad. Although my recent visitations dropped to 0, i though nobody's going to see this :)

I always wanted to ask about the chapter 35 and 90 days things, but was a bit shy about it. Who knows how writer's mind works :)

I accept you challenge on the Fish called Wanda!

I've started chapter 36 and it hurts my head. I will get back to it though.
