My Cinematic Alphabet (2014 Update)

My entry into the “My Favorite Movie Titles” blogathon a couple weeks ago got me thinking about a blog meme I participated in a few years back: My Cinematic Alphabet. I thought it would be fun to post an updated version of my list to see how much my tastes have changed since then. For every letter of the alphabet, I have chosen my favorite film beginning with that letter (I also included my favorite “#” movie as well). Some of these choices were incredibly difficult, but I’m pleased with my selections. At the end, I’ll share the differences between the two lists.

Blog Meme: My Cinematic Alphabet

Now that the extended holiday weekend is over, it’s back to the grind at The Warning Sign. I have put the finishing touches on my much-delayed Cinematic Alphabet, finally joining in on a blogathon that happened months ago. While there are a few overlapping titles from my Life In Movies list, I tried to diversify this compilation and present alternate films. These are still some of my favorite movies, although some entered the foray due to challenging letters (I’m looking at you, Quiz Show!). This was a lot of fun to come up with, and if you haven’t done so I highly recommend going for it. Also, be sure to check out my Video Game Alphabet as well. Gotta love blog memes, right?
