The Alphabet Meme

Fletch and Adam tagged me on this fun looking meme, so here I go!

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 LOTR 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.

Girl on a Motorcycle

This might be the first meme I have really got to watch expand around from (almost) the beginning. Everyone's choices are so different.

Have a good week!

Xi Yan? Snob.

What about X: The Man with the X-Ray Eyes, huh?

I'm so disappointed...

Holy cow you almost did it! Hard to believe Kevin Bacon has been in sooo many flicks! We need to get in touch with his agent and reccomend he do some "Y" and "z" movies soon!

Yeah it's a pretty fun meme! Wonder how many people have done it now?

I am sad to admit I have not seen X: X The Man with X-Ray Eyes and it just kind of felt dishonest to include it...even though it has one of the greatest titles ever!

Gatorade? That is so freaking cool!
