    Someone raised this question up a while ago and I started really thinking about it just now... Remember you got nothing else on this island (other than food/shelter) except a TV a DVD and five DVD movies... which five would it be. My five... I guess most people would agree with the top three... how about 4/5???

    1) Star Wars: A New Hope
    2) Raiders of the Lost Ark
    3) Terminator 2: Judgement Day
    4) Braveheart
    5) The Rock

    Wanted to put Jurassic Park in there but I had a Spielberg film in there... Fellowship of the Ring barely missed the cut for me since its incomplete without the other two... couldn't quite fit a Tom Hanks movie in there either.

    I saw this on The Office. Looks like a fun game. Here I go:

    1. Citizen Kane
    2. The Godfather
    3. Lawrence of Arabia
    4. Casablanca
    5. Spider-Man

    I know my #5 seems out of place, but I love Spider-Man!

    I don't know. Comedies could get old real fast, IMO. I prefer the classics and Spider-Man. lol

    4. Sweeney Todd - I could watch this over and over, its not on dvd yet tho

    But I agree with Matt. If you're stranded on a desert island, you're going to want something to lift up your spirits, because....you know.....you're stranded on a desert island.

    3. Ferris Bueller's Day Off
    4. The Shawshank Redemption

    I need movies I can watch a hundred times... Brazil, La Dolce Vita, Videodrome, and Citizen Kane are all films that I can watch again and again, learning something new every time. As for Top Gun, I watch that movie like once a month :(

    Not if you pick good ones. The ones I picked, I notice something new each time and even the jokes I know by heart still make me laugh.

    Really? Shawshank? You're on a desert island, with no hope of rescue and you want to watch Shawshank? That just screams reciepe for suicide.

    I dont hate it as much as when people do "hte" and "teh" instead of "the". That gets annoying
