Fogs from Fogs’ Movie Reviews has kindly submitted his Desert Island Films. Read on for his choices and reasons, and be sure to check out his site.
Desert Island Films is about choosing 8 films you would take if you were going to be stranded on a desert island and explaining your choices. They don’t necessarily have to be your favourites, just 8 films, no more or no less! You are also permitted to take one book and one novelty item which must be inanimate and of no use in escaping the island or allowing communication from outside.
Desert Island Films – Fogs’ Movie Reviews
1) The Godfather.
I wont cheat and say I & II. I can make do with I. But there’s no way I go the rest of my life without the wisdom of Don Corleone. Or the cunning of Michael.
Again, a movie I can’t imagine never seeing again… I believe that Jaws holds my unofficial record for movie I’ve watched the most in my life. I’ve seen it roughly 65,000 times.
3) Pulp Fiction
With all that time on my hands, I’ll be able further my quest to quote this movie exactly from beginning to end.
4) Rocky III
I need a little shut off your brain and have some fun movie, and Rocky III is one of my faves in that regard. Also serves as a nice childhood nostalgia piece.
5) Boogie Nights
Can serve as a comedy and a drama. Plus, if you’re going to be stuck on a desert island, it’s good to have some Heather Graham along with you, no?
6) The Big Lebowski
So I can have a laugh whenever being stuck on a desert island overwhelms me with suckitude.
7) Fast Times at Ridgemont High
So I can reminisce about my teenage years.
8) Office Space
I think its possible that watching this movie might just give me a moment’s pause about how great it was to live in society. I might just think, “Hey, you know? This beach aint so bad”
My book will be the Bible, cause if I’m marrooned on a desrt Island, I’m probably going to want to find God, and its a big long book, so there’s a lot of reading there.
For my luxury item, how about a couch? Make it a fold away. That way I can watch movies AND sleep in comfort!
