ABC Film Challenge

There has been a small trend that I have seen going round called the ABC Challenge. This is a challenge when you list your favourite books or films, but they each have to start with one of the letters from the alphabet. Sounds easy, but there are a couple of letters that are difficult to get one film or book from. The only formatting rule is that you leave out the words ‘A’ and ‘The’ at the start of a title, and base the title of the next word (for example, The Goonies would go under the letter G).

I did manage to get a film for every letter, but letters such as U and X had little to choose from. Some of the harder letters came from the films I had to leave off my list, such as The Breakfast Club for the letter B and A Star is Born for the letter S. My list is a personal list, so it is my favourite movies. I have a lot of comic book and animated films, as well as some Oscar movies, some classics and a couple of odd cheesy choices (see choice Y). However, I am proud of my list and I wonder how many of these letters will change in the upcoming years. Without further ado, here is my ABC Challenge.
