My Movie Alphabet Vol 2 Blogathon

The universe works in weird ways…just the other morning I happened to think that I’ve never listed my favourites before…and voila that same afternoon Often Off Topic listed her entry for a favourites Blogathon hosted by superhero Mettel Ray. As most of you know by now, I should probably see someone about my Blogathon addiction (anyone know someone specialising in Movie Blogathon Addictions???) and naturally, despite being snowed under with other Blogathon entries and a thing called Work, I just had to take part. So, here’s a list of my favourite actors, actresses and movies.

(Thank goodness 2 entries (but different categories) per letter are allowed (it’s Vol 2) as long as it isn’t two of the same “category” – I’m taking the liberty of classifying actors and actresses as different categories. Bring on volume 10 where I have less trouble narrowing it down ๐Ÿ˜€ )

Adore

  1. Oh man, I’m the worst since it took me this long to comment but what a great list! So different from all the others and there are so many picks in here that I haven’t even heard of! Catch and Release though, what an interesting pick as well!

      1. I don’t like to hijack your comments, so feel free to delete this. Off the top of my head I came up with:
        American Graffiti- Where were you in ’62?
        Big Wednesday- Surfing, nostalgia, pure Americana.
        Cool Hand Luke- “Nobody can eat 50 eggs!”
        Days of Heaven- Malick at his most beautiful.
        Electra Glide in Blue- The cops response to Easy Rider.
        Flesh and Bone- Meg Ryan, West Texas, 1993…haunting!
        Get Carter- Michael Caine at his most menacing, dispensing hard justice to Newcastle villains.
        Hatari!- My favourite lazy Sunday film.
        Island in the Sky- The Duke again, he actually cries in this one!
        Junior Bonner- More nostalgia. Bull riding, brawls and family values.
        Kiss Me Deadly- Classic hard-boiled film noir.
        Lancaster, Burt- For The Professionals and Sweet Smell of Success.
        Mr. Majestyk- The local Mafia try to bully Charles Bronson’s melon farmer. Good luck with that!
        Nicholson, Jack- For Chinatown, Easy Rider and Wolf.
        Out for Justice- Segal at his best!
        Point Blank- Lee Marvin at his most intense.
        Quaid, Dennis- For D.O.A. Flesh and Bone and Innerspace.
        Rififi-The greatest heist film of all time. Often imitated, never bettered.
        Smokey and the Bandit- Burt, Jerry Reed and Sally Field, Eastbound and Down!
        Two-Lane Blacktop- The king of road movies.
        Ulzana’s Raid- Burt Lancaster, back on plains with the Apache.
        Vanishing Point- The crown prince of road movies.
        Wake in Fright-The Australian Outback is the backdrop of an educated man’s descent into depravity.
        Xander Berkely- If only for his sleazy cameo in The Fabulous Baker Boys.
        You’ve Got Mail- The finest crafted rom-com of the 1990s.
        Zulu- The big screen dรฉbut of a certain Maurice Micklewhite. Whatever became of him?

        1. This is fantastic! Thanks so much. Smokey and the Bandit…gosh, it’s been years since I watched that. And Junior Bonner. And Fabulous Baker Boys. And Cool Hand Luke. And You’ve Got Mail…and….and…and…I have some “rewatching” to do and quite a bit of “new watching” – Rififi sounds great (just looked it up) and I’ve been meaning to watch Mr. Majestyk for ages.
          Fantastic list. And P.S. comments always welcome – please don’t worry about “hi-jacking” them. Have a lovely evening!
