Let's do something different. I've done Desert Island Games before, but what about movies. Let's say a Bakers Dozen of movies you can not live without and would watch til the end of time.

1. Scott Pilgrim Vs The World
2. Clue
3. Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl
4. The Grudge
5. The Grudge 2
6. The Hobbit, Rankin/Bass Version
7. Liar Liar
8. Hook
9. Harry Potter And The Half-Blood Prince (though I'd need all the books)
10. The Langoliers
11. Rose Red
12. The Shining (ABC Miniseries version)
13. The House on Haunted Hill (1959 Version)

I'm sure I will think of others or addendums when it's not late-o-clock but I feel pretty good about this list at the moment.

So movies I could never do without, eh? Well everyone I know IRL "knows" I'm an SF-nut from way back, but if I'm being completely honest...

1 - The Secret Garden (1993)
2 - A Little Princess (1995)
3 - The Nutcracker (Royal Ballet)
4 - Alice in Wonderland (1985 miniseries)
5 - Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe (2005)
6 - The Wizard of Oz (1939)
7 - Peter Pan (1953)
8 - Return to Neverland
9 - The Nutcracker Sweet (weird CGI, but totally adorable)
10 - Hansel and Gretel (1986)
11 - Red Riding Hood (2006) (bizarre but fun modern take on the story)
12 - Snow White (1987)
13 - Maleficent

I could go on, but we're only limited to 13 entries. Razz

I'd probably throw in Independence Day at around number 25 or so, as my very first SF entry. xD
