Desert Island Movie List

Ok, so all the cool kids are listing their Desert Island Movie picks. As I have long wanted to be one of the cool kids, I submit the following (rules are simple, one for each genre).

  • Western - Tombstone
  • Horror - Bubba Hotep (I know this technically probably doesn't count as horror but it's classic and has to be on the list somewhere.)
  • Sci-Fi - Aliens
  • Musical - White Christmas
  • Comedy - Big Trouble
  • War - The Lord of the Rings Trillogy (well, they are fighting a war...)
  • Action - Serenity
  • Foreign - Babbette's Feast
  • Classic (pre 1960) - Pillow to Post (again hard to choose)
  • Documentary - Rattle & Hum (drawing a blank here on any others that I've actually seen. Kinda sad.)
  • Bonus Pick (any genre) - Sabrina (Harrison Ford remake)
I don't know that I'd be happy with all my choices for a huge long time - cause I had a lot of ties that I had to flip coins on. Still, all things considered, it's a reasonable list.


  1. You know, I think Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon is probably my favorite foreign film. Had to think about it, though. That's a tough one!

  2. I love the Sabrina film w/Harrison Ford. Julia Ormond is also very talented. I want to look like her. Oh well. :)

  3. Bubba Ho-Tep has a mummy, and that's an automatic qualification for the horror genre.

  4. I've gotta see Bubba Ho-Tep sounds like. All around good choices.

  5. Gwynne, I think you'd enjoy Bubba Hotep. If you liked Shaun of the Dead, you're going to enjoy this one.
