Well, best place to start is :

I seem to remember Desert Island Discs being seven items years ago, not
quite sure when the format changed.

The other 6 DVDs? Hmmm.

It's a Wonderful Life - Frank Capra (1946)
Chasing Amy - Kevin Smith (1997)
The Empire Strikes Back - George Lucas (1980)
Bladerunner - Ridley Scott (1982)
The Matrix - Andy and Larry Wachowski (1999)
Le Grand Bleu - Luc Besson (1988)

And if I only get to take one book, it's the collected Lord of the Rings

The luxury item? One metric ton of finest quality Moroccan weed. Don't worry
about rescuing me. :)
