Here’s something cool for you: The Action Film Alphabet. It’s part of a series called the Friday Project, by British web designer Stephen Wildish.
How many movies can you identify?
A – Alive
B – Bad Boys
C – Con Air
D – Die Hard
E – The Expendables
F – Face/Off
G – Gone in 60 Seconds
H – Hot Fuzz
I – Independence Day
J – Jack Reacher
K – Kick Boxer
L – Lethal Weapon
M – Mission Impossible
N – Nikita
O – Ocean’s Eleven
P – Point Break
Q – Quantum of Solace
R – Rush Hour
S – Sherlock Holmes
T – Top Gun
W – Waterworld
X – XXX
Y – You Only Live Once
Z – Zero Dark Thirty
I got 19 off the top of my head. I could probably stare at it for a while and come up with a few more.
Keep staring. We await further messages.
Sorry, I think S is Sherlock Holmes. 😀
Eldest Son: I think A might be Air Force One. (Which featured a 747.)
And if J is Jack Reacher, I count three Tom Cruise movies to only one Harrison Ford. How’d that happen?
I had Air Force One as well. Y is You Only Live _Twice_.
A – Air Force One
U – Under Siege
V – Volcano
I am disappointed at the absence of lava.
Is V really Volcano? That could be virtually any action hero rescuing a damsel in distress. Where is the substance that can only be described as lava?!
Could it be V for Vendetta?
I think V is The Vampire Lovers. 🙂

Buy the book.
I write thrillers, including UNSUB, the Jo Beckett series, and the Evan Delaney novels. You can find me in Austin, Texas. Read here about the writing life and the lies that pay my bills.
