Your Millennial Movie Title Match

Hint: Imagine you’re stranded on an island (this is a nod to Cast Away which we somehow left off this bracket) and you had to pick one of these movies to watch.  Let that be your determining mindset.  And yes, this island has a TV, BluRay player, and electricity.  Stop trying to make sense of all this, its a f*&king movie bracket!
