Movies I Couldn't Live Without

Charleston radio-man and Internet podcast superstar Spike Nesmith has posted a really interesting question on his Blog! The Musical:

Should you be stranded on a deserted island and able to take only five movies with you (presuming, of course, said island had electricity and something to view the movies on), what five movies would you choose?

I'm trying to put together my own list in preperation for joining Spike soon on his show. (Is it too politically incorrect to add on my list of five a porn flick? I'm just asking...)

What's the five on your list?

How many of the DVDs would be porn would have to depend on if there was a native population of women on said island.

I'm going to assume that island has internet access, so here's my "at this moment" five:

1. Donnie Darko

2. Young Frankenstein

3. The Natural

4. Pulp Fiction

5. The Godfather

Stanton said...

1. City of God
2. Paris J'taime
3. Amelie
4. The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension
5. A Complete Anthology of the Coen Brothers

If I can't have #5, I ain't goin' to no stinkin' island.

Absolutely you can have porn! In face, someone has already suggested taking a porno movie, saying that it would last longer than any other of his selections because he would only have to watch it in five minute bursts.

Plus, how awesome would it be to have "Citizen Kane" trumped on a movie list by "Weapons Of Ass Destruction"?

1) Night of the Living Dead
2) Clockers
3) Jackie Brown
4) House of 1000 Zombies
5) Lost Highway

*in fact. Not "in face".

Paging Dr Freud!

Hmm, how about:

Life of Brian
Baby Snakes

Gotta have some tunes in one flick, at least!

1. Strange Brew
2. What the Bleep?! Down the Rabbit Hole [or is it, "What the @!#$&%?!"? Down the Rabbit Hole]
3. Dead Poets Society
4. Office Space
5. Stand by Me
And if I had to pick a sixth ...
6. That certain unnamed movie in which I am the director, writer, and producer, and in which I play a minor role (just kidding).
