My Cinematic Alphabet

Thanks to the prompting of the wondrous Rupert Pupkin Speaks (which was in turn influenced by Sherrie at citizenrobot.com) I have put together my person Cinematic Alphabet - documenting my favorite (or pretty darn close) film for each letter of the alphabet. I apologize if you see these same films pop up on other's lists, but I've tried to vary as much as possible while still being true to my genre-loving taste. 

Let's begin!

I is for INHERIT THE WIND

J is for JAWS

K is for THE KILLER
