Like Hammy’s earlier game of an A-Z of bands from your spotify, I thought why not try it with film titles.
What I am hoping you will all try and play to help alleviate the boredom but could also provide inspiration for others to look at films they may have overlooked, forgotten about etc.
If you can think of your ultimate A-Z of films that you would watch over and over again. I am not interested in “what the critics say, or your peers, friends etc.” This A -Z list must be personal to you.
The reason I say this is that some films you state maybe left-field for others and people may be interested to know more and who better to give insight than you, a trusted friend.
Now A-Z may sound easy but you could have many titles under the “Letter” so, add up to 3 films per letter.
For instance (please note these are just examples):
“S” - Sound of Music, the; Scorpio, Scent of a Woman
Please note the film “The Sound of Music”, I have made the “The” a secondary part of the film title to allow it to sit under that the letter “S”. In many cases, you will be able to do this but in others such as “In the Line of Fire”, the “In” is a major part of the title so could not be converted to “The Line of Fire, in” as it makes no sense.
So requirements, the film must be something you have watched a minimum of 3-5 times - no maximum.
I will start off but will return again and again to my post as I will refine my list to films that float back from the darken corners of our minds.
There is no limitation to the films as these are your choices so if you watch a tibetan crime caper involving monkeys and man-pigs go for it; if you have a porn flick you always watch choose that too but add a “NSFW” against it in case people go searching for it online at work.
In some cases, you may select a film title that has many films of the same name so you might want to add the star of the film or year it was released; for example "Hound of the Baskervilles, the (Basil Rathbone).
I hope you participate in this.
