If you were marooned on a desert island, but could take 10 films with you (no more), what ten films would you take.


After much thought this is the list I came up with, and it's quite different from my ten "greatest" films of all time (Citizen Kane and the Seven Samurai are nowhere to be seen here).  You'd want a variety of genres.  You'd want films you could enjoy over and over again.  

What would you take with you?


My Desert Island Film List:
1.  Once Upon a Time in the West
2.  Red Dawn
3.  North by Northwest
4.  The Wild Bunch
5.  Dawn of the Dead
6.  True Romance
7.  The Bad News Bears
8.  The Searchers
9.  Chinatown
10.  The Apartment

You know the most popular Japanese author Murakami Haruki mentioned 'Red Dawn' several times in his essays as one of his favorite war movie?

I like it too Smiley

WOLVERINEEEEEEEEEEES!!!

Klaatu, that's awesome about RED DAWN getting some respect.

Milius is one of my favorite directors and I don't think he gets nearly the amount of respect he deserves.  No one out there makes films like he does.  He's a complete throwback.

I was glad to see three Milius related films on deMaie's list.

Blood Simple (1984 Coen Bros)
Takana Don't Forget Your Scarf (1994 Akira Kaurismäki)
For A Few Dollars More (1965 Sir Leone)
Escape From New York (1982 John Carpenter)
Lone Wolf And Cub -Baby Cart At The River Styx (1973 Kenji Misumi)
L e o n (international integral version) (1994 Luc Besson)
Fearless Vampire Killers (1967 Roman Polanski)
Dune (1984 David Lynch) 'Guilty Pleasure'
Caddyshack (1980 Harold Ramis) 'you got to have a funny'

.......Thats only nine, couldnt think of a tenth........

I agree Seven Samurai, OUATITW etc. You do tend to leave the stuff out your over precious about. As in its a personal 'event' watching these films.

These 9 films above are addictive films. Take abusive amounts of over watching from yours truly.  Wink

Cigar - do you mean Cast Away (with Tom Hanks) or Castaway (with Amanda Donahue running around naked for most of the film) ?

I'd take Leone films, Magnificent Seven, Red River, Searchers, Liberty Valance, Adventures of Robin Hood, Sea Hawk, Captain Blood, Forrest Gump, Goldfinger, From Russia with Love, Animal House, Jaws, Josey Wales, Unforgiven, Dirty Harry, Death Rides a Horse, Big Gundown, Great Escape, Taras Bulba (great music).
