The ABCs of Being Lame (And Bored)

This is just about as shameless as when I would fill out lame iPod shuffle surveys on Myspace, but since Flickhead did it... I may as well alleviate my boredom doing the same, as sort of a free association exercise; I promise that each of the letters are represented by the first film I could think of that I actually liked that began with said letter. Here's the original post. There appears to be plenty of annoying distinctions regarding Indiana Jones and the Lord of the Rings, but none regarding a foreign language title. So I'll just make up my own rule and use the American release title. Meh.
