Friday Distraction: Top 6 Desert Island Movies??

#154542 2 years, 4 months ago
So, you're washed up on a desert island with only 6 movies and a DVD player. Conveniently, a chest washed up with you that contains all of the Dead dvds/movies, the Last Waltz and Woodstock. What other 6 movies do you bring with you that you can watch over and over again? Not necessarily what you think are the best movies ever made, but the ones that are always enjoyable for you?

Mine would be:

To Have and Have Not
Casablanca
Waiting for Guffman
Princess Bride
Lord of the Rings: Return of the King (or all 3!)
The American President

Nice question!

42nd Street
Breakfast at Tiffany's
Blazing Saddles
It's a Mad Mad Mad Mad World
Show People (1928)
All That Jazz

This is a fun thread, it's interesting seeing people's choices, gives you tips on movies to see. Maybe we could all see a movie and then discuss it in a thread, like a book club. We could even start right away with a movie everybody's seen: Wizard of Oz. What do you think?
