Web Event! My Movie Alphabet Vol. 2

Today, I bring you – prepare yourself – A BLOGATHON. Gosh, how long has it been since I’ve been in one? Back in the early years of blogging there were so many! Oh and those cute awards we gave each other… I kinda miss those, they were so uplifting. We need to bring those back, guys. Since we’re riding the nostalgia wave,  I’m pleased to say my dear blogger friend Mettel Ray has celebrated seven years of blogging this year! And to every movie blogger’s delight, she brought back her famous, life-changing (what do you mean, exaggerating) blogathon, My Movie Alphabet.

You can check out her own Vol. 2 here. The following rules apply:
1. List your favourite actors, actresses, movies or directors from # to z
2. I allow a little wiggle room: you may list two under one letter* because it is Vol 2 after all! In that case, the choices have to be from different categories – actor/director, actress/movie, etc
3. If you participated last time, don’t look at your first movie alphabet before Vol 2 is ready
4. Comparisons in between your new alphabet and the previous one are highly encouraged

As in my previous entry, I include honourable mentions. Some of my picks are a bit representative, like Raging Bull for Martin Scorsese, Yesterday Today Tomorrow for italian cinema, and so on. My picks for the original blogathon are marked as before.

      aww thanks, that’s cool 😀

    This is so pretty I can’t! You have a knack of making everything visually so stunning that I’m a little jealous but only a little. 😀

    I agree with Brittani, there are so many things to love about your list. And even though I’m a bit unaware of most of these picks, I feel like the sophistication behind this alphabet just makes it stand out from the crowd. Though choosing Pride & Prejudice you kind of bribed me a bit because that’s the best!

    Thank you so so so much for participating! :*

      Nah you rock the pinterest-esque graphics too, plus the originals you upload, are you kidding? You’re new instagram is on fire!

      ha, thanks! I kinda cheated again with the x-files, sorry about that! ?

      Well thanks for bringing it back, this is hands down the most fun blogathon I’ve ever participated on.
