Movie Meme

A friend suggested that I do this movie meme.  And, since it seemed pretty simple, I thought that I’d give it a whirl.

Here’s how it works:

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 judgment 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.”

Okay, let’s spank this pig and leave it squealin’ from the feelin’:

A. Adam’s Rib

B. Big Trouble in Little China

C. Casablanca

D. The Dirty Dozen

E. The Evil Dead

F. Freejack

G. Ginger Snaps

H. His Girl Friday

I. Iron Man

J. The Jungle Book

K. Kelly’s Heroes

L. The Lady Eve

M. The Monster Squad

N. A Night at the Opera

O. Office Space

P. Police Academy

Q. Quest for Fire

R. Robocop

S. The Searchers

T. Terminator 2: Judgement Day

U. Uncle Buck

V. A View to a Kill

W. The Wicker Man

X. X-Men

Y. Young Frankenstein

Z. Zero Effect

And now the part where I tag five others, thereby pissing them off to no end.  Strap on your helmets and lock and load, people:

1. Ashley

3. Kristin

4. Robert

5. Rich
