Reader Friday: Desert Island Film Festival

Okay, you're stuck on that proverbial desert island. No one around, but for some strange reason there's a movie house and a trained monkey that knows how to run the projector. What three films would you want to have with you, one from each category:

1. Drama

2. Comedy

3. Musical

(We at TKZ will try to air drop you some popcorn)

  4. 1) Band of Brothers - a) it's long, b) it'll make me grateful it's just a desert island and not a desert island full of people trying to kill me.

    2) Noises Off with Michael Caine an Carol Burnett - Because, it's Michale Caine and Carol Burnett.

    3) Moulin Rouge - No explanation needed (also it was robbed of it's best song at the Oscars).

  5. My categories are all mixed up--all musical in one way or another, two comedies, one pretty dramatic.

    -Blues Brothers
    -A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum (although the play is much better)
    -Les Miserables

  6. Blues Brothers. It has it all.

    Drama: will Carrie Fisher kill Jake?
    Comedy: Dan Aykroyd singing "Sometimes It's Hard to be a Woman." Cracks me up every time.
    Musical: Aretha, Stevie, Belushi.
