Desert Island Discs: Mark II

Cool. When I put together this bad boy last week, not everyone was quite on board, so I went back over it this weekend to add in those I missed. I think I got everyone (as of 6pm on Saturday), but please let me know if I didn’t by leaving a comment. Anyway, here’s the revised list, for those OCD people like myself who want an easy place to follow who took what. Enjoy!

Some more trivia (I like trivia!):

  • Lotsa people cheating and bringing whole trilogies. Mostly The Lord of the Rings, although all three individual movies have been brought separately as well.
  • Some more people bringing television shows, with The Wire, Arrested Development and The X-Files along for the ride.
  • The original Star Wars trilogy has been rounded out.
  • X-Men II is the only non-Batman superhero film on the list.
  • The Dark Knight is still the most ‘desert-island-able’ film in blogdom.
  • Red over at Anomolous Materials wanted to bring The Hobbit on preorder (I assume both movies), but I didn’t count it (in my defence, he’s taking all three Lord of the Rings).

  1. That’s KICK ASS that you put that together Darren. My pix were very lonely. I also see you sitting there devising this thing and getting very tired and getting pissed at people like me for picking films like Monte Cristo that require their own line instead of just an X… hahaha!

    • Ah no. Will I ruin my geeky film cred by conceding there’s a heap of films here that I still have to see? Though Monte Cristo ain’t among them (it’s pretty awesome – Guy Pearce is one of the most underrated actors working today).

  2. Incredible work sir. Thanks for including Red’s picks, very much appreciated 🙂

    • No bother – I tried to spot as many as I could and it’s quite possible I missed some due to my eyes going a bit square, but I’ll update it again if I missed anyone.

  3. So much fun!! I love it!
