Reverend’s Reviews: Chris' Favorite Movies, From A to Z

As promised, here is Chris' take on the "Alphabet Meme":

This was hard — so many movies to go through! Keep in mind I used "favorite" and not "best" as criteria.

A is for The Adventures of Baron Munchausen (1988)
B is for The Blob (1958)
C is for Citizen Kane (1941)
D is for Doctor Dolittle (1967)
E is for E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial (1982)
F is for Fantasia (1940)
G is for Ghostbusters (1984) (Gone With the Wind is right next to it.)
H is for Heathers (1989)
I is for It Happened One Night (1934)
J is for Jerry Maguire (1996)
K is for King Kong (1933)
L is for The Last Temptation of Christ (1988)
M is for The Mission (1986)
N is for The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993) (I omitted Tim Burton's, obviously.)
O is for Out of Africa (1985)
P is for The Poseidon Adventure (1972)
Q is for The Quiet Earth (1985) (There aren't many "Q" titles to choose from, but I do like this New Zealand movie.)
R is for Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981)
S is for Superman: The Movie (1978)
T is for Terms of Endearment (1983)
U is for The Unbearable Lightness of Being (1988)
V is for Victor/Victoria (1982)
W is for The Wizard of Oz (1939)
X is for X2: X-Men United (2003) (Of the few "X" titles listed in Leonard Maltin's Movie Guide, this is my favorite. Will Neil pick Xanadu???)
Y is for Yentl (1983)
Z is for Zero Patience (1993) (A fabulous Canadian AIDS musical!)

By the by, Chris is on record that Doctor Dolittle is his favorite movie of all time; I think it's because of the "Giant Pink Sea Snail".

  1. Thanks! I love the "Doctor Dolittle" flourishes, even if your "Great Pink Sea Snail" comment is just plain dirty! ;)
