It’s an age old problem that has been applied to music and literature – what 5 books or music would you take with you if you were stranded on a desert island. Presumably in the case of music you’re on a desert island with working electricity. As such I thought it would be a good idea to pose the same question of DVDs (or Blu-Rays).

One has to remember, though, that this a question that is more complex than it appears on the surface. These will have to be films that you’re able to watch again, and again, or again. Or perhaps you’ll pick five films that you will only watch once – but that will be worth it.
