My Cinematic Alphabet

This meme is nothing new, but it took my friend Cam to write his own list for me to find out about it. This was rather difficult for me on some letters--especially "M" with Metropolis, Magnolia, Memento, and The Matrix, or "S" with Star Wars, The Social Network, Seven, The Shawshank Redemption, and Sleeping Beauty all being some of my personal favorites. Other letters, like "X," don't have very many good options at all--basically, you have the X-Men films. I ended up making sure my favorite directors were represented, as well as my all-time favorites (like Amelie). And it was fun finding the best screenshots to display for each film.

Anyway, enjoy this alphabetical list of 26 of great films:

Amelie (2001)
Blade Runner (1982)
Casablanca (1942)
Dark Knight, The (2008)
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004)

  1. Great list! This was fun. I love how difficult it is to find a good movie that begins with X.
