Web Event! My Movie Alphabet Vol. 2

Published On May 31, 2017 by Sofia da Costa |
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.
