P is for Prom

Well A to Z-ers, it's the close of another week of the challenge and boy has it been a great one. I've made so many new blogging connections and found some great new A to Z themes to go back and catch up on tomorrow during the day off. What about you guys? 

For today's A to Z Movie Smackdown, I'm kickin' it back to one of my favorite nostalgic movie eras, otherwise known as the late 90's. These two films favorites both came out in 1999 and feature ill-conceived bets, dearly departed actors (rest in peace Heath Ledger and Paul Walker), and the glue that holds this category together, proms! So cast your VOTE for your favorite flashback prom flick.

P is for Prom: 

 vs.

O is for Outer Space

For today's A to Z Movie Smackdown, I'm feeling in the mood for something a little bit . . . out of this world. I thought I would pair up two fairly recent movies that feature the great expanse we call outer space and see which one made an impression. So cast you VOTE for today's metagalactic match-up!

N is for Nicholas Cage

Let me start by saying, this A to Z Movie Smackdown is going to be a free-for-all. The best of the best to the worst of the worst. Because "N" is for Nicholas Cage, and the man is a legacy unto himself. I mean what . . . strange and fascinating choices of film roles he's made over the years. Movies we respect, movies we, ahem, make drinking games out of. 

And while I've done my best each day to restrain myself to just two movies (and the occasional Alternate Pairing), today I simply could NOT narrow it down. I wouldn't even know where to start. 

So for today's Smackdown, feel free to VOTE for whichever Nicholas Cage movie you just can't live without. Whether it's because it's a genuinely great film, or a movie you just love to hate, vote away. And feel free to add any of your own favorite Nick Cage movies not featured below to the list. There are just soooo many good ones. 

N is for Nicholas Cage:

M is for Mice

Check it out bloggers. We've made it to halfway through the challenge! Can you believe it? It feels like it's flying by. But then, time flies when you're having fun, right? 

For today's A to Z Movie Smackdown, I'm kickin' it old school -- all the way back to my childhood as a matter of fact. Today I'll be featuring two animated films that I loved as a kid and, to be honest, still love today. My friend Tina was incensed that I didn't use Pixar's Ratatouille, but as that particular film features a rat, it didn't quite fit into today's category. So cast your VOTE for today's double feature and let me know which Mouse movie gets the cheese!

M is for Mice:

 vs.

L is for Libraries

Yay, we've made it to the letter "L" and what happens to be one of my favorite A to Z Movie Smackdown pairings of the challenge! One of them was a made for TV film that I DVR almost every time I see it pop up, and the other is a childhood favorite. I can't wait to see how you guys VOTE on this on!

K is for Kung Fu

Hello fellow A to Z-ers, it's the start of a new week of the challenge. I'm feeling refreshed and ready to come check out all of your "K" posts!

This A to Z Movie Smackdown post is dedicated to my wonderful husband, who absolutely loves all things Chinese and Japanese. I've got to admit, this particular category of film is not really my cup of tea. In fact, I had to ask around to find two movies that would make a good pairing (the alternate pairing below was all mine though!). But for those of you who are fans of the genre (or even if you're not), VOTE for you favorite . . . 

K is for Kung Fu: 

 vs.

[First alternate pairing: Kung Fu Panda vs. Rush Hour]

J is for Jail Breaks

Well, we're coming to the end of the second week of the A to Z Challenge. How is everyone doing so far? Sticking with it? And for those of you how have voted everyday, a HUGE thank you for checking in on my blog every day. 

For today's A to Z Movie Smackdown, I'm featuring two movies who even the least cinematically inclined will have heard of (if not seen). They're both great movies with terrific casts, and if I had to pick one, well, I'm not really sure I could. So let's hear from you guys instead. VOTE for your favorite . . . 

J is for Jail Breaks:

 vs.

My personal favorite jailbreak movie: O Brother Where Art Thou.
