I'm not having any; this planet's finished. That in mind, which films would make your list? Let's say you can pick up tooooo...five. Or six. Five or six, I'm easy. Maybe seven. Five, six or seven. You can't pick any film from a series, though (sorry, no LOTR).

I think I'd pick the following: The Great Dictator, Cloud Atlas, Monty Python And The Holy Grail and...my mind's a blank from there, so I'll have to come back to this. Don't want to strain it; migraines and blackouts are best taken in shifts.

Coraline, though I would never show it to a six year old as per recommendation. 

Seriously, that movie is a great work of clay animation, but it would scare the living daylight out of a child.

It would at least teach them about Fear, that being one corner of the Werner Herzog Triangle of Life (the other two being Desperation and Murder).

If the hypothetical scenario is that the planet's finished, then the answer's easy:

The Room

Just so my kid can believe that the people of the old world were unevolved apes and can move on with his/her life and eventually take over the New World and become the world's King/Queen, always haunted, but also motivated by the lie that humanity was once like Tommy Wiseau and that the future should be a better place.

Schindler's List, so when they land on another planet they can watch it and make sure not to do that there too.

All the pron I can cram into that library. Good films can always be replaced with good literature.

"Hey, guys! We found the instruction manual!" :p

I suppose putting aside the obvious answer of an actual instruction manual... Ip Man, Ghost in The Shell, The Wrath of Khan (original), The Maltese Falcon, The Great Dictator.

This.

Also, I reckon some of the 007 films need to be in there, Goldeneye and Live and Let Die maybe. They're a big part of cinema history.
