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?
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:
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?
