If you were stuck on a desert island, what are the 10 movies you couldn’t live without?

If it makes any different for some reason there is a  bluray player on the desert island.

There are mine: Inception, The Big Lebowski, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Ben-Hur, Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb, The Dark Knight, A Clockwork Orange, The Usual Suspects, Pulp Fiction and Jaws.

If it's true what they say, that GOD created us in His image, then why should we not love creating, and why should we not continue to do so, as carefully and ethically as we can, on whatever scale we're capable of?

     The choice is simple; refuse to create, and refuse to grow, or build, with care and love.

I was kind of hoping this thread would be on the subject of movies set on a desert(ed) island, such as Blue Lagoon (1980). Heaven knows, I haven't seen enough of that kind of movie.

As for a movie favorites list, I'm inclined to agree with opera comedienne Anna Russell's opinion that no matter which ten favorite anythings you chose (in her case, referring to musical scores), assuming an electrical coconut tree with an electric outlet into which to plug your entertainment appliances, you'd soon get so sick of playing those same few things over and over again that you'd grab an electrical coconut from that tree and smash all your records (or tapes, or DVDs, or whatever) with it out of frustration.

As she went on to say, if you did end up stranded on a desert island, a better thing to have than any collection of music would be a guitar or a piano washed up with you. Even if you sang horribly off key and didn't know how to play any instruments, you could entertain yourself forever singing and playing (atrociously) anything that came to mind.

As for movies, I'd take Anna Russell's approach to them as well. Rather than be stranded with, say, ten favorite movies on an i-Pad and a lifetime's supply of super-durable batteries to power it, I'd rather have a huge crate of writing supplies, an even larger crate containing a lifetime's supply of paper, and some binding material. Then I'd spend any time I didn't use foraging for food and shelter writing up stories and movie scripts from memory and maybe improving on them a bit.

[From one of these unreleased scripts:]

Darth Vader: "No Luke, I am your father!"

Luke Skywalker: "Oh yeah? Well screw you anyway, Dad! You abandoned Mom and left me to rot with Uncle Owen on Tatooine! Some father you turned out to be!"

so randomly started thinking about this topic late last night when I couldn't sleep and I'm revising the movies I'm bringing with me to the island: Inception, The Dark Knight, The Prestige, 2001, Dr. Strangelove, A Clockwork Orange,  Ben-Hur, Pulp Fiction, Ikiru and Sunset Blvd.
