you know the drill.  you have to pick your favorite items to have for the rest of your life because you are stranded on a deserted island and won't have access to any other items.  lets keep it to 5

 

lets start with :  5  MOVIES

 

1) Star Wars episode V : The Empire Strikes Back.  I was 13 when when this came out, saw it opening day 1st show, and a total of 6 times that summer in the theaters.  Only movie where I cheered and booed characters as they come onscreen for the first time.  Pure escapism and fantasy

 

2) A Clockwork Orange.  A movie that examines our violent nature, and in the end finds a way to make alex sympathetic compared to the bureaucracy that made him and the politician that tries to exploit him.

 

3) Excalibur.  Amazing movie with no CGI or special effects that still manages to tell the story in a magical way.  The fighting scenes are very realistic and my first exposure to the opera music Oh, fortuna (Carmina Burana), something I have owned on CD and on every mp3 player, ipod and phone since.  One line from the movie " I did not know how empty was my soul until it was filled".  like whoa

 

4) Dead Poets Society.  Robin Williams basically plays the man I wish I had in my life when I was 15.  

 

5) King Kong vs Godzilla : This only represents my entire childhood.

Ditto.

 

It's actually an endearing love story, wrapped in a horribly awkward package. My wife and I love it.
