An Acrostic Movie List

This popped up on Twitter a while back, and I realized I had to think about it a little bit. Then it got lost in drafts when I decided I'd rather write it up than get caught trying to craft a tweet like a nerd.

The idea is that you list a favorite movie for each letter in your name, so here goes.

  • Dark City (dir. Alex Proyas, 1998)
  • Escape from New York (dir. John Carpenter, 1981)
  • Night of the Living Dead (dir. George A. Romero, 1968)
  • M (dir. Fritz Lang, 1931)
  • Children of Men (dir. Alfonso Cuarón, 2006)
  • Hot Fuzz (dir. Edgar Wright, 2007)
  • Evil Dead 2 (dir. Sam Raimi, 1987)
  • North by Northwest (dir. Alfred Hitchcock, 1959)
  • Rushmore (dir. Wes Anderson, 1998)
  • Young Frankenstein (dir. Mel Brooks, 1974)

The next logical step is a list of the best movies of my lifetime. That gives me a great opportunity to start with a film that won't fit in my name: The Killing of a Chinese Bookie (dir. John Cassavetes, 1976). And I was going to sleep!
