Something light for today, just right for a Sunday afternoon. How better to spend part of Sunday than tucked up on the sofa watching your 'feelgood' or as I like to think of them, 'comfort' films, or movies?
This is another Meme, plucked from a plethora of blogs I've noticed.
The idea being that you pick your favorite film for each letter of the alphabet.
The rules are, (but I think I broke them), that you ignore all articles ("a", "an", "the", "le", "la", "les", "der", "die", "das", "il", "gli", "el", etc.), unless the entire title of the film consists only of those articles, or the word, as used in the title, is not an article, e.g. the word 'Die' in Die Hard would only be an article if the movie had been in German. In the rest of the title, ignore additionally such words as: "and", "&", "in", "of".
If such words are included, use the next word in the title for sorting.
I also chose more than one film - I have never been one for rules, if I can bend them safely, or without anyone finding out...
Go ahead, it isn't easy, have a go! Enjoy!
