These are my favorite to watch & not necessarily what I consider the "best" movies. That's an entirely separate category. I could watch the following movies on repeat, though. Desert island and/or apocalypse, these are the ones I bring.

1. Fanboys
2. Repo! The Genetic Opera
3. Edward Scissorhands
4. Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home
5. Pitch Perfect (I have a vagina. Don't judge me)

Ditto OGF's sentiment about desert island movies (not the having a vagina thing)

1. The Mask of Zorro
2. The Prestige
3. The Godfather
4. Return of the Jedi (yes I'm one of those)
5. Aliens

The Prestige never gets old. Such a great movie. I really loved The Illusionist, too & I waffle back & forth over which one I enjoy more...

Unbreakable?? Really? [smile] Everything else I can be 100% on board with, nay 110% on board with. But Unbreakable? In the top 5?

Yes, Unbreakable! It reaches out to the superhero inside all of us. It's not a superhero movie, I call it a 'Superhuman' movie because it wasn't about the fight sequences explosions, instead it played on a normal man who may or may not be invincible or... wait for it... Unbreakable. Out of the 2 good movies Shyamalan has done, this one is my favorite. Everything after Unbreakable was utter crap.

I only watched it once, when it first came out. So I was like 12, I guess. I don't remember a ton about it - just the general premise, but man I hated it.  Maybe it deserves another chance, since you think so highly of it. If my opinion doesn't change, though, we're gonna need to have a chat about this. Lol.
