My Movie Alphabet Vol 2 Blogathon


It’s a super exciting month for one of my fellow bloggers, Mettel Ray, because her blog has just turned 7 years old! Back in 2012 she ran the Movie Alphabet Blogathon to celebrate her 400th post, and 5 years later she’s back with Vol 2! I wasn’t even a blogger back in 2012 and my movie knowledge was nothing short of awful, so I’m taking part for the first time, but who knows, maybe we’ll be doing this all over again in a few years time!

You’ve got until the end of May to take part so if you’d like to find out more, check out Mettel Ray’s original post here. There are a few rules, the most important of which are as follows:

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

5. Post your Movie Alphabet Vol 2 by the 31st of May, link back to this post and let me know here in the comments or over at twitter @MettelRay (and use the hashtag mettelrayse7en)

Before I start, I’m really sorry, I broke rule #2 several times. I tried not to, but it just happened. I also seem to be talking about Fight Club a lot recently too, so it’s just something I can’t help right now.

  1. It fills me with great joy to see how much love Taika is getting! And as for your Y……Approve, Yoda would. Gawd. I am sorry. I couldn’t resist.


  2. This list is nothing short of utter perfection. I almost squealed when I saw Ohana on there. Brilliant!

    Honestly, what a lovely list. It’s gorgeous!

    (PS: that picture of Reynolds made me laugh/die inside)


  3. I’m the worst blogger .. I just discovered this which is unbelievably stupid of me but at least I finally made it here!

    This list is amazing! I love the out of the box picks for this one, and this is probably the most versatile alphabet I’ve seen yet! πŸ™‚
