Check This Out: Figure Out the Film Alphabet Through the Decades
by Ethan Anderton
January 11, 2012
Awhile back we featured a stellar alphabet tailored specifically with characters and more from the Star Wars universe. Now artist Stephen Wildish has taken the time to craft a line of images capturing 26 films from each decade in a compilation known as the Film Alphabet. Movies.com called our attention to one of the decades, and we noticed that Wildish has actually gone all the way back to the 1960's and plowed all the way through the 2000's with this cool and fun art project. The artist highlights everything from Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery to Zulu and plenty more films in between. See them below!
Here's each decade of The Film Alphabet designed by Stephen Wildish, first discovered by Movies.com:
While many of the films are easily figured out, there are some that will stump even the most hardcore movie fans. The 2000's are riddled with Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings and X-Men, the 1990's features Dumb & Dumber, Home Alone and Men in Black, the 1980's pays tribute to Raiders of the Lost Ark, E.T. and Back to the Future, the 1970's honors National Lampoon's Animal House, Enter the Dragon and Logan's Run and finally the 1960's, which I think is the most difficult, includes Planet of the Apes, Mary Poppins and more. Can you figure out all 130 films from the Film Alphabet?
Of the 2000's I don't know what Y, U, P or C is.

Oh wait sorry I was looking at the 90's for U.

U is Unbreakable, with Bruce Willis and Samuel L. Jackson. A very good movie, in my opinion.

Wow for 90's movies they gave "J" to that shitty schwarzenegger movie of him being pregnant instead of Jurassic Park...huge wtf!! Glad to see though for 80's Back to the Future, Indiana Jones, ET, and Teen Wolf were mentioned! (could've asked for Goonies though in "G")
