Cinematic Alphabet: The Sequel!


There were so many films to choose from the 1st go-round, I had a legion of backups. Here is another totally alternate, secondary take on my Cinematic Alphabet. It's really the kind of list that could change almost daily. I have a good deal of affection for all these movies. Some are certainly better than others, but there are several here that I feel are rather unjustly obscure.


A is for AFTER HOURS.




B is for THE 'BURBS.



C is for THE CAR.



D is for DEADLY EYES.



E is for EMPEROR OF THE NORTH.




F is for FREEBIE AND THE BEAN.



G is for THE GRAVY TRAIN.



H is for HELLFIGHTERS.


I is for ISLAND OF LOST SOULS.



J is for JOURNEY TO THE FAR SIDE OF THE SUN.



K is for THE KING OF MARVIN GARDENS.



L is for THE LADIES MAN.



M is for MIDNIGHT MADNESS.



N is for NIGHT OF THE JUGGLER.



O is for ONE WAY PASSAGE.



P is for PRETTY POISON.



Q is for THE QUIET EARTH.


R is for ROLLERCOASTER.


S is for SHACK OUT ON 101.


T is for TARGETS.



U is for ULZANA'S RAID.


V is for THE VERDICT



W is for WHERE EAGLES DARE.



X is for X: THE UNKNOWN.



Y is for YOUNG LOVE, FIRST LOVE.


Z is for ZABRISKIE POINT.



Random shot from GRIZZLY, which almost made the list:


HICKEY & BOGGS, another alt pick.


And... THEM!

I'm totally with you, especially on Island of Lost Souls, Pretty Poison, & Targets. All so good!

I've wanted to see Midnight Madness & Shack Out on 101 since learning of their respective existences. Hopefully they live up to their awesome premises.

Deadly Eyes looks great - I'll have to add that to my list of to-dos. :)

Andrew Green said...

Interesting choices....
The Burbs was a welcome inclusion.

I love a ton of these! Targets, Emperor of the North, Journey to the Far Side of the Sun,The freakin' Burbs!...all fantastic!

Dave said...

Whoa! Borgnine bringin' the FUNK!
Also, "The Quiet Earth" is such an underrated flick! I haven't seen it since I was a kid though, but it blew me away then.

The Quiet Earth would have been my Q. Good Call. Now you've got to do this for foreign movies :)

Great and uniquely personal choices, especially like the shout outs for The Burbs and Ulzanna's Raid. I finally got a gray market dvd of The Gravy Train/Dion Brothers...can't wait to finally see it.

I did my own Cinematic Alphabet at my blog here, check it out:

WYNNER-You must see DEADLY EYES. I picked it for GGTMC a while back. Fun movie. Big rats!
