Movie Watch

I woke up with an idea this morning and thought it would be a good subject for a post.
It stemmed from something I read a couple of days ago about books.
I don’t read a fraction of the books I used to, though we had shelves groaning with them in the cottage.
Before the Big Sort Out, we also had an entire wall dedicated to DVDs and videos. We ended up giving over 300 to charity, and completely stocked their shelves!

So my question is, I wonder if you can list a One Word title movie for every letter of the alphabet that you personally have seen.
No cheating like dropping the word ‘The’ in the title.

This isn’t a challenge but a bit of fun, though if you wanted to, you can pingback to this post with your own list/post and I’ll get back to you.

Here’s mine, the titles are all from memory, but I had to look up the year.
Bear in mind some of them are old black and whites but they were classics, right?

X: Xanadu (1980), X-Men (2000)

Y: Yentil (1983)

Z: Zulu (1964)

There are of course a lot more with just one word titles but these are ones I’ve seen, and as I was compiling my list, a lot more entered my head, like Superman, Spiderman, Beethoven, Cocoon, Millennium, Gravity, Gremlins, Hitch, Stardust, Traitor, Outland, Outpost, Divergent, Twisted. I think it covers quite a mixed bag over the years.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Some great movies in your list – and well done on completing it too. I couldn’t think of a Q.

    Amadeus – one of my favourite films. Bedazzled – hillarious, Peter Cook and Dudley Moore, Excalibur – also one of my all time favourites, perhaps there’s a lot to be said for one word titles. Gallipoli, Rebecca, Titanic, this is quite addictive isn’t it, will probably think of some more later.
