As for movies I like all kinds from Star Wars to Black Swan to Up. I tend to lean towards dramas more so but also enjoy comedies like The Hangover.
Tv is all over the place. How I Met Your Mother is #1. I also currently watch Walking Dead, Vampire Diaries, Revenge, Game of Thrones, Glee, Modern Family, and so on.
Oh well I guess if the reason I had to choose involved a tropical island:
Small shovel to play in sand
And a friend
I enjoy the beach.
