Seeing as we can't take Movie DVDs on the desert island ....
Due to global warming and a .55C temperature increase on the sea surface in the last 30 years, a massive natural disaster keeps you locked in your home for a day. You have no cable TV or internet (Tafnut needs to be rushed to the hospital after suffering a rare withdrawl symptom called deforuminitis athleticus) so all you can really do is watch a few movies you bought before the storm.
So.. what are your 5 favourite movies of all time that you'd like to watch while pandemonium breaks out?
I'll go with:
Monty Pythons Quest for the Holy grail
Cheech and Chong- Up in smoke
LOTR set or Rainman or The Graduate

Um . . . you do know it's a comedy, right? The class is for 16-18 year-olds, and the parents have to sign a consent form, cuz some of the flix are 'R' (Fight Club!) The Big O scene in WHMS is one of the funniest in Hollywood history, and we 'analyze' it as such.

And the problem is??
After seeing this movie about 100 times I didn't even notice the profanity. Then I watched it one time with my mother. THEN I recognized just how much profanity is in that flick.
Still love it though. Each scene is a classic unto itself. If I had to pick one, it is the scene where Vince gives ODing Mia a shot of adrenalin. This just barely beats out the scene where Jules and Vince hide their car with the dead body at Jimmy’s and then have to clean it up. Oh, and the scene were Captain Koons explains the meaning of the watch to a young Butch – priceless.
By definition the list refers to movies I'd wanna see more'n once. I had to dig back into history a bit, as it seems that fer the last several years, most/all movies're either chick flicks or aimed at the teenage demographic. Yuck!!
But even the better ones don't much interest me in seein' 'em twice. Here's a list of exceptions ...
1. 2001 - A Space Odyssey
2. Quest for Fire
3. Kindergarten Cop
4. Dearly Beloved
I'd much prefer a bunch of DVDs of the TV shows "The Kumars at No. 42" and "Red Green". Heck, Red even made a movie - "Duct Tape Forever". Not on my list, however ...
1. Alien (absolute classic, picked as my thriller)
2. Man Bites Dog (black, black humour, to provide me with some laughter)
3. Paper Moon (tears, laughter, joy, pain all in one)
4. E.T (arw! To give me some childhood escapism)
5. One of my favourite porno's...
