Desert Island Picks: 5 Movies I Wouldn’t Mind Being Stranded With

Sabienna Bowman

Sabienna is a freelance writer, pop culture junkie and unabashed fangirl. She blames an early exposure to The X-Files and the Must See TV era of NBC for her twin life-long loves of sci-fi and sitcoms. She's not sure where her all-consuming love for all things British came from, but it led her to Doctor Who so she doesn't complain.

  • Great article Sabienna. I have thought about this before and I can honestly say that my top pick would have to be Harry Potter, but don’t ask me to pick which one, actually if each movie counts as one it would probably take half my list, that’s how much I love watching these films. I would have to think about the others, but Amelie is an excellent choice and might also have to make it on my list.

    I will admit that I have never seen The Thin Man, although now I kind of want to, especially since it’s a movie you want to be stuck with on an island, that’s a pretty great endorsement.

      Thanks Sandie! The Harry Potter films would be a great choice, but the last one makes me cry like a baby every time I see it. I’m not sure if I could handle that much stress if I was island-bound.

      You should definitely check out The Thin Man! One of my film teachers introduced it to me in college and I’ve been obsessed ever since. There are four or five films in the series, but the first one is my favorite. It’s incredibly funny and I love seeing happy, functional established couples in films. Loy and Powell’s chemistry is insane. Okay, I’ll stop gushing now.
