the alphabet meme

It's not that I don't like memes... it's just that (like everything else lately) it seems like it takes me forever to get around to them. So, fellow bloggy peeps, continue to tag me. And once in a while, though it may be really, really late... I'll do it. Here goes. (Fletch tagged me on this one, by the way.)

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 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."

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 (I didn't do this. Everyone I love seems to have been tagged already. If you haven't been tagged, and you're now weeping on the floor because you think I don't love you... get over it and post your own. I do love you. Really. --Nayana).

Now, Fletch didn't specifically say it had to be our favorite film starting with that letter... but I'm going to try to do that anyway.

So.... My list.

    Is Zoolander there because you really like it or because you can't think of any other 'Z' movies?

    I. Love. Elf.

    Eternal Sunshine was fantastic, but I only saw it once... and Elf is dear to my heart.
