  1. That’s quite a list Tony. I was thrilled to see TROUBLE IN PARADISE there too. I submitted my own list to Rick at Coosa Creek Cinema, as per DCD’s urging, knowing full well that we have Allan’s list here to acknowledge your own tagging. But outside of Coleman’s Corner, I simply don’t know who else to tag, as everyone has been spoken for at this point.

    Allan Fish’s list:

    Alexander Nevsky
    Bad Day At Black Rock
    Dead of Night
    Gone With the Wind
    His Girl Friday
    In A Lonely Place
    LA Confidential
    No Country For Old Men
    Out of the Past
    Queen Christina
    Rear Window
    Trouble in Paradise
    Ugetsu Mongatari
    Young Frankenstein
    Zoo in Budapest


    Coleman’s Corner
    Front The Front Row
    Cinematic Passions
    Fils For the Soul

  2. Hi! D’Ambra,
    A nice list of 26 films, some of the films on your list I have watched, others I haven’t watched yet!
    …hey! can you believe it!… your blog is part of the “buzz” along with several other blogs focusing on the Alphabet Meme!…Great job! at listing your Alphabet Meme in “record speed!” ;)

    Take care!

  3. Hi! Sam,
    Another nice list of 26 films!…some of the films on your list I have watched, others I haven’t watched yet!
    Sam, your job is finish!…once you list your 26 favorite films and list 5 others blogs.(They can either fulfill it! or ignore it!) hmmm…I planned to tag T.S. and Dean (Treadway), but both of them completed their list of 26 films before I could even tag them!…I already emailed Fletch (The creator of the Alphabet Meme) and asked him can they both still be tagged!
    Take care!
    dcd ;)

  4. Thanks, Tony – I actually didn’t see I was tagged until now but just tackled the meme last night. We’ve got two overlaps: Waterfront and (inevitably) X-Men. good call on Seduced and Abandoned though.

    Sam, great to see Kwaidan there. I couldn’t pick it, as it was too slow for me at times, but it may be the most gorgeous film I’ve seen, so that compensates somewhat, no?

  5. I have decided to bend the rules ever so slightly and change my entry for X, as while X-Men was a fun movie, it was a “no-alternative” choice at the time of posting. This morning a more worthy sci-fi flick came to mind: David Cronenberg’s eXistenZ (1999).
