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)

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.
