Repo, The Genetic Opera
Full Metal Jacket
Fight Club
Everything is Illuminated
Boondock Saints

Hibernate's avatar

If we were to have electricity there then I’d call for help. But not after 2–3 months so I can get some peace and quiet time for myself [unless I was with people who do not want to relax].

But I’d chose :

- Shawshank redemption
– The godfather [ all of them because I do not consider them to be a one by one movie ]
– Schindler’s list
– Spawn
– Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels

Schroedes13's avatar

The Adjustment Bureau
Gladiator
V for Vendetta
Nacho Libre
We Were Soldiers

I left out Boondock Saints because @ANef_is_Enuf already brought it!

ANef_is_Enuf's avatar

Schindler’s List is probably one of the greatest movies of all time… but I don’t think I would want to spend two years locked in a cabin crying my eyes out. I would have to bring a lot of tissues.

Schroedes13's avatar

I have to admit. I’ve never watched Schindler’s List or The Godfathers. You can now berate me.

AshLeigh's avatar

I’ve never seen Schindlers list either…

Hibernate's avatar

@Schroedes13 I wanted to take Fight Club but it was already brought by @ANef_is_Enuf ^^

ANef_is_Enuf's avatar

[Takes a bow.]
Don’t worry, I’ve got you covered.

Schroedes13's avatar

@Hibernate ya it’s nice that we got to use other picks instead. Later draft picks are sometimes a good thing :P

AshLeigh's avatar

PS: I don’t care about Fight Club. :)

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

I am taking it as literally five movies, no series, trilogies, etc. The five movies I think I would take that I can watch again, and again and always find something new I missed before would be:

Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back.

A.I. Artificial Intelligence.

Matrix Reloaded.

Godfather II

Gladiator

If I only had five and no more.

Schroedes13's avatar

@Hypocrisy_Central you liked the 2nd Matrix more than the first? Pourquoi? Ps. I’m already bringing Gladiator, you can have another pick!

pashley_108's avatar

-love guru
– twilight
– p.s I love you
– silence of the lambs
– Any Jim carey movie

AshLeigh's avatar

@pashley_108,
Silence Of The Lambs!!!
<LURVE!!!>

ANef_is_Enuf's avatar

Someone please ensure that @Symbelline is in this cabin with us.

Schroedes13's avatar

@pashley_108 Twilight?? really. I could stand the Love Guru. But not Twilight! Also, you must specify which Jim Carey movie, Ace Ventura or Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind?

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

@Schroedes13 I think the Empire Strikes back was the better of all six. If you want to be the one to bring “Gladiator” I could easily swap out that for “300”. :-P

cletrans2col's avatar

Full Metal Jacket
Dark Knight
Snatch
Lock Stock
Big lebowski

pashley_108's avatar

@Schroedes13 yes twilight blame my ex for that hahah we were like Edward and Bella. And it don’t matter which Jim carey movie, love Jim careys movies.

TexasDude's avatar

@ANef_is_Enuf fucking love Repo.

As for me, I’d take:

Youth in Revolt
Fido
Trick r Treat
Red Dawn
Zombieland

Schroedes13's avatar

@Hypocrisy_Central ok 300 is acceptable as well!

And @pashley_108 that’s still sad! lol

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

Whoever said “Twilight”, I am pissing in their popcorn, as well as anyone who brings Jackass, Beeves and Butthead, SouthPark, or Weekend at Bernie’s. Hee hee hee

Schroedes13's avatar

@Fiddle RED DAWN??!?! WITH PATRICK SWAYZE!!!!

Schroedes13's avatar

@Fiddle I loved YIR and Zombieland, is Fido that good? Also what is TOT?

pashley_108's avatar

@Hypocrisy_Central hahahahhahah….
@Fiddle_Playing_Creole_Bastard love zombieland!
@Schroedes13 hahah shh.. Heheh

AshLeigh's avatar

@Everyone who’s freaking out,
Please, she has the right to like Twilight.
I personally don’t like it, but leave her be. :)
And, @Fiddle_Playing_Creole_Bastard,
I freaking lurve Zombieland. :D:D:D<3

FutureMemory's avatar

Adulthood
Lost in Translation
Star Wars
The Empire Strikes Back
Return of the Jedi

ANef_is_Enuf's avatar

Oooh, Lost in Translation is a good movie.

pashley_108's avatar

What bout black swan or paranormal activity!

FutureMemory's avatar

I like how one of the topics is urine.

Plucky's avatar

Omg, Black Swan ..I hated that movie.

AshLeigh's avatar

@pashley_108,
I thought Paranormal Activity was really dumb. D:

Schroedes13's avatar

@pashley_108 I loved both PA’s! I thought the idea of never showing the “thing” was amazing! So scary.

Plucky's avatar

Are we not allowed to mention ones that others already posted?

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

@Schroedes13 See! @FutureMemory The Empire Strikes Back that I am bringing, so there is still a duplicate.

pashley_108's avatar

@AshLeigh i don’t think it was, it was scary as he’ll for me!
@Schroedes13 I loved both to the second one was the best tho can’t wait for 3 to come out!

AshLeigh's avatar

I think I’d bring…
Sweeney Todd – Because, hello, Johny Depp!
Across The Universe – Because, hello, Jim Sturgess!
The Time Travelers Wife – Because it’s so sad, and cute. :)
Red Ridinghood – Great fracking movie!
And, of course, The First TMNT movie. :D:D:D

Schroedes13's avatar

@Plucky I don’t know. But we’ve started piggy backing off others, so feel free to do it yourself!

AshLeigh's avatar

@pashley_108,
Really? I thought it was HILARIOUS!

pashley_108's avatar

@AshLeigh hahah I was shit scared I was on the person next to me I was so scared lol

AshLeigh's avatar

@pashley_108,
Hah. I watched it alone. I just laughed. Especially when she got dragged out of bed. So funny. :)

pashley_108's avatar

@AshLeigh :O haha I just can’t handle shit like that. :S

Plucky's avatar

Well, someone has to bring a set of horror movies.

Umm maybe the Halloween or Friday the 13th sets ..or Nightmare on Elm Street ones.

TexasDude's avatar

@Schroedes13 I love Red Dawn. It has so many great one liners in it.
Also, Trick r Treat is… well… a really awesome dark comedy that is actually really intelligent and fun. And it’s about Halloween. And Anna Paquin is really hot in it… and…. Just watch the trailer. It’s probably my favorite movie of all time.

Aethelflaed's avatar

Star Wars Original Trilogy
Shrek
Duck Soup

Schroedes13's avatar

I can’t watch things that are on youtube. Sorry, I“m in China for the summer and I’m too cheap to pay for a web proxy service.

AshLeigh's avatar

@Aethelflaed,
Fracking Yes!!! Shrek!

Aethelflaed's avatar

@AshLeigh All the movies listed I’ve already seen over a hundred times, so I figure a few hundred more won’t be when it gets on my nerves.

Schroedes13's avatar

no one’s bringing any Pauly Shore movies….:(

ANef_is_Enuf's avatar

@Schroedes13 you know I deleted Boondock Saints and put Biodome, and then put Boondock Saints back.

Schroedes13's avatar

I’m confused!......so which is on the roster now?

ANef_is_Enuf's avatar

Boondock. That’s what I actually posted. But I should get credit for at least considering a Pauly Shore movie.

Schroedes13's avatar

@ANef_is_Enuf yes, you have been given 2 credits.

Schroedes13's avatar

I was also considering Jury Duty or Son in Law!

sophiesword's avatar

Shutter island
The phantom of the opera
Transformers 3 the dark of the moon
The dark night
Somethings gotta give

Schroedes13's avatar

@sophiesword I loved Shutter Island right up until the end. I thought it was the film equivalent of Life of Pi!

ANef_is_Enuf's avatar

I agree about Shutter Island. But, the ending frustrated me.

sophiesword's avatar

@Schroedes13 shutter island is such an amazing movie and good observation your right

Schroedes13's avatar

I just felt I had wasted 2 hours. Same as when I read that book.

sophiesword's avatar

@ANef_is_Enuf no the ending is the best part.

ANef_is_Enuf's avatar

@sophiesword I forgot the ‘but’ in my statement. I agree, I loved it. It just completely caught me off guard.

pashley_108's avatar

@sophiesword love shutter island to and transformers!!!!! <3

Schroedes13's avatar

I think we have our week of movies sorted out already. Ps. Do we know if we’re gonna try and stay up the entire time and have a continuous movie time or are we just making it an extended daytime job to watch them?

sophiesword's avatar

I saw transformers 3 in the cinema it was of the hook man!!!
how is optimums prime so amazing.How?

pashley_108's avatar

@sophiesword I know his not that good love bumble bee!!

Schroedes13's avatar

PS. NO SPOILERS!! I’M IN CHINA AND IT COMES OUT THIS WEEKEND!

sophiesword's avatar

pashley_108's avatar

Ok it’s a great movie better then the rest!

Schroedes13's avatar

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

I’m bringing all the Harry Potter movies. I don’t care that I can only bring 5.

dannyc's avatar

Requiem for a Dream
Trainspotting
The Wizard of OZ
Psycho
Raging Bull

Bellatrix's avatar

I’ll watch them with you @Simone_De_Beauvoir. Hope someone brings the LOTRs films too.

I like how some of us have adapted the original premise to mean the cabins will be close together and we will be able to meet up for movie nights :D

ANef_is_Enuf's avatar

@Bellatrix just be glad you didn’t see the side conversation I had with a jelly about this scenario last night in PMs. It ultimately lead to cannibalism.
I intend to be schmoozing with @dannyc at this lockdown. Good flicks.

Jellie's avatar

Invictus
Rock n Rolla
The Other Guys
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
Aristocats (cartoon movie)

And these are not my favourite movies, just the ones I can watch again an again.

Bellatrix's avatar

Cannibalism… far out… you need to let me know who that is so I can make my cabin far away from theirs. Unless it was Symb… she can ea .. well never mind. :D

ANef_is_Enuf's avatar

@Bellatrix you know the deal. If I told you I’d have to kill you. ;) Best to learn to sleep with one eye open.

AshLeigh's avatar

I fracking love Up. :D:D:D
Ahh. Cannabalism! FTW!!!

WillWorkForChocolate's avatar

Please promise to not shoot me for my choices:

And I’m cheating. Spank me.

1. Monty Python and the Holy Grail
2. The Twilight Saga
3. The entire Harry Potter series
4. The Pirates of the Caribbean saga
5. The Lord of the Rings trilogy

AshLeigh's avatar

@WillWorkForChocolate,
Pirates Of The Caribbean! I’m coming over to your cabbin. ;)

WillWorkForChocolate's avatar

@AshLeigh Bring popcorn, we’ll have a marathon!

Kardamom's avatar

Sense and Sensibility (Alan Rickman, Emma Thompson, Hugh Grant and Kate Winslet) An incredibly bittersweet romantic story, with extremely gorgeous people, set in the beautiful English countryside. Alan Rickman at his finest and blonde-ist! Hugh Grant at his Hugh Grant-ist!

Young Frankenstein (Gene Wilder, Cloris Leachman, Madeline Kahn, Terri Garr) One of the funniest and most quotable movies of all times. Gene Wilder at his sexiest!

Head (The Monkees’s movie) A very psychedelic, interconnected set of seemingly random sequences, that all become clear in the end. The music is fantastic, the clothes are awesome and the guys are gorgeous!

A Hard Day’s Night (The Beatles’s first movie) Great slice of life with the Fab Four. If I had to be stuck on an island I would not want to be there without Beatles music, and they are/were just so damned cute!

The last one would be a tie between Star Wars (the original movie) and The Sound of Music. I’ve already seen both of them about a hundred times, so I guess I don’t get tired of them. Not yet, so far.

All of these movies have gorgeous men in them. You didn’t say whether or not I’d get stuck on that island with my SO, so I gotta have something to think about. ; – )

Ayesha's avatar

1. The Breakfast Club.
2. Basic Instinct.
3. Roman Holiday.
4. Wild Orchid.
5. Come September.

AshLeigh's avatar

@WillWorkForChocolate,
You got yourself a deal!
I hate popcorn!

Schroedes13's avatar

Grandma’s Boy….great flick! Man, do we ever have a lot of copies of Twilight and Shawshank!

AshLeigh's avatar

Mmmm…. The sound of music. :D

Faidle's avatar

Finding Nemo.
Tangled.
Shrek. All of them count as one…
Alice In Wonderland. Tim Burton, and the cartoon. It’s not cheating! They’re one…
And, of course, Mulan. One and two… It’s a package deal…

My, my, I’m such a child… :D

ANef_is_Enuf's avatar

I may abandon my earlier responses and hang out with @Faidle, instead. I come bearing trail mix.

AshLeigh's avatar

@Faidle,
Saydah, Saydah, Saydah… Come over. Lets have a movie night. :D:D:D
You made me want to watch Mulan.
@ANef_is_Enuf, you can come too. :D:D:D

Faidle's avatar

@AshLeigh and @ANef_is_Enuf,
You got yourself a deal, missy.[=

Schroedes13's avatar

@ANef_is_Enuf YOU’RE GIVING OUT THE TRAIL MIX TO OTHERS!!!! ......................

Kardamom's avatar

Has anybody seen them new Twizzlers that’s supposed to be sweet and sour?

ANef_is_Enuf's avatar

@Schroedes13 she said Alice in Wonderland…. I have been swayed. One eye open, buddy. One eye open.

Schroedes13's avatar

@ANef_is_Enuf But she’s bringing the Tim Burton one too. Everyone knows Tim Burton’s originals are the only good movies he has made. Willy Wonka and Alice were too dark and morbid. They made me sad.

Also, just wait to you see what I’ve packed in my backpack…...muahahahahahahhaa!

ANef_is_Enuf's avatar

I can’t argue with the Tim Burton statement. But Finding Nemo and the AIW cartoon are included. It’s going to be hard to change my mind on this.

Schroedes13's avatar

fine…..I see how it is. I’m gonna have to find another co-conspirator. Someone who has a good taste in movies too :P

ANef_is_Enuf's avatar

In all of my time on Fluther I have never met anyone that seems to lure me OT more often than @Schroedes13.
I swear I am going to behave from now on.

AshLeigh's avatar

Tim Burton isn’t so bad! For those of us who like to be scared shitless.

Schroedes13's avatar

@AshLeigh Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy Tim. I loved The Corpse Bride. However, I don’t enjoy when he takes childhood classics and makes them the next Halloween sequel.

@ANef_is_Enuf Shame on you! I’m awesome!

ANef_is_Enuf's avatar

@AshLeigh no, I am a huge Tim Burton fan. I just wasn’t particularly impressed with his version of Alice.

AshLeigh's avatar

@Schroedes13,
I like it. Haha. It was different.
And really, all childhood classics are fucking (pardon my French) scary anyways! I mean… The part of Snow White where she was running throught the woods used to scare the hell out of me when I was little. xD
@ANef_is_Enuf,
I enjoyed it. It was nothing in comparison, but it was entertaining. :)

Schroedes13's avatar

@AshLeigh See I had a very different childhood experience. My closest sibling in age is my brother and he is 19 years older than me. So I was watching some scary stuff before I probably should have, so I didn’t find the Disney stuff that bad. Some of the scariest movies when I was little was Child’s Play (I threw all my stuff animals out the window that night!) and Jurassic Park (I still give fern leaves a double take to make sure that Momma Raptor isn’t watching me).

AshLeigh's avatar

@Schroedes13,
I watched that stuff really young too, but for some reason, Childsplay was just funny to me. And Snow White was fracking scary. xD

Schroedes13's avatar

LOL frig!

Ps. I’m changing my choices. We Were Soldiers is out. Bloodsport is in.

Symbeline's avatar

Trainspotting, Sleepy Hollow, Dawn of the Dead (the original) Halloween II and Ninja Sroll.

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

I am breaking the rules, I am gonna sneak in Altered States, Showgirls, A Clockwork Orange, and Starship Troopers.

Schroedes13's avatar

@Hypocrisy_Central Starship Troopers. The greatest movie of all time :P! RICO’S ROUGHNECKS!

ANef_is_Enuf's avatar

I like that so many jellies have openly admitted to smuggling extra movies in.

Schroedes13's avatar

I can’t wait to watch Starship Troopers again. I haven’t seen that since I was 15ish.

@ANef_is_Enuf wait til you see what I smuggled in! lol

AshLeigh's avatar

I love that we pretend this is really happening, and say that we smuggled things in…

ANef_is_Enuf's avatar

@AshLeigh no one can deny that we have an abundance of imaginative people here.

AshLeigh's avatar

To be honest, if we’re all in one jumbo cabbin, or in cabbins near eachother, I doubt we’d need the movies. We could just argue, or have heart to heart discussions all day long…

Schroedes13's avatar

heart to heart?? eewww…sign me up for the argument cabin though!

AshLeigh's avatar

Can there be a cabbin when I get to sit there and laugh at all the funny Jellies? :D
We’d need a comedy cabbin..

Schroedes13's avatar

CABIN! CABIN!! CABIN! lol

AshLeigh's avatar

Really? I spelled it right before, but I’m spelling it wrong now… I’m special. :)

Schroedes13's avatar

My Mom say’s I’m cool too! Why aren’t we allowed to bring more movies btw? Cause if I am smuggling in this backpack full of cool stuff, wouldn’t I just be able to bring one of my DVD binders?

AshLeigh's avatar

I don’t know… There isn’t really a reason. I just wanted to know the top five people would bring to watch over and over…

Faidle's avatar

Dang… You miss a lot of conversation when you don’t live on Fluther. :(

Schroedes13's avatar

@Faidle yes, yes you do! But wb!

AshLeigh's avatar

@Schroedes13,
What’s WB? D:

Faidle's avatar

@Schroedes13,
Yeah! What’s wb?

Schroedes13's avatar

welcome back? You said that you had missed a lot since you weren’t here….lol!

Faidle's avatar

Ohhhhh. Haha. Gotcha. xD
Thanks. Glad to be here. :D:D:D
@AshLeigh and I are apparently not good with abreviations… :)

Schroedes13's avatar

@Faidle I’ll try to stay away from the shortened words and abbreviations.

Faidle's avatar

@Schroedes13,
That’s a wonderful choice. :)
@AshLeigh, answer my dang phone call. :)

blueberry_kid's avatar

@Schroedes13 The one with Jaden Smith. I liked the older Karate Kid, but I love Jakie Chan.

WillWorkForChocolate's avatar

Damn, there are so many great choices here, I think we should all have cabins really close to each other so we can migrate from cabin to cabin, watching everyone’s movies!

ddude1116's avatar

Your skin… is falling off? D:
