MEME FUN - The "Stranded On An Island" Poll



Borrowing from KJ over at Must Love Movies...


The question was asked: If you were stranded on a deserted island, your rescue uncertain, and could have only 5 films to watch, which movies would you want to have?

My response:

Hmm... I don't know. I think I'll probably take a bunch of porn with me :o)

Stranded on a deserted island, all alone (especially if rescue is uncertain), with a DVD player and TV? Yup, probably porn... some anyway!

But since I have 5 choices, maybe 2 will be porn (for variety), and the remaining 3 will be genuine films. Given my predicament, I think I would need some really silly, upbeat films; nothing sad, sappy nor dour; nothing that demands a lot of brain power; and no horror movies; all 3 would probably be comedies, but it's hard to name just 3.

I'll go with:

1. Porn
2. Porn
3. Airplane! (or, any of the Naked Gun movies.)
4. There's Something About Mary (or The 40-Year Old Virgin)
5. The Return of the Pink Panther - the Peter Sellers originals, not the horrid Steve Martin reincarnations (or Beverly Hills Cop 1)

Some honorable mentions, in the event that I somehow find an Internet connection on this island and have just enough time and bandwidth to download 2 or 3 more: Annie Hall, Dr Strangelove, National Lampoon's Vacation...

What are yours?

    LOL! A funny thing is that I don't think porn would have crossed my mind. But now that you mention it, it makes total sense.

    But, I'll keep my list clean.

    I'm with you on the comedies. I'd need something to keep me laughing.

    1. Monty Python's Life of Brian
    2. Ferris Bueller's Day Off
    3. Caddyshack
    4. Splash
    5. Office Space
