|-Rocky Horror Picture Show
-Evil Dead 2
-Magical Mystery Tour
-Nightmare Before Xmas
-This is Spinal Tap
-Harold and Maude
-A Clockwork Orange
-Sid and Nancy
-Ringu (not the American version of The Ring)
Still don't know what's a cult film?
All praise Wikipedia
|Some films listed that I'm a fan of...
- Donnie Darko
- Leon: The Professional
- This Is Spinal
Films not listed but that I consider are cult films and I'm a fan of...
- The Shawshank Redemption
- American History X
- The Green Mile
Now there are those films that have devoted fans, but the number of fans is far bigger than those from other cult films.
Lord Of The Rings
Also big cult films that weren't included on that list...
The Godfather trilogy
Cheech and Chong
I haven't yet to see Donnie Darko. Is it really a good film? Everybody raves about it. I read the synopsis at wikipedia, and it looks like a dumb plot LOL
I'll be honest here. I was never a fan of Star Wars. I tried to like the films, but they never caught on to me. The same goes for Star Trek. I liked the series, but I need to see the films again.
LOTR? Yeah they are good, but not much of a fan. I liked the books more, same goes for Harry Potter.
American History X was a very disturbing film, but it is excellent.
Scarface I liked. It is surely a very popular film with the rap crowd. If you've seen Cribs you'd know. :P
Cheech and Chong! They are hilarious! Hehehe Esp. Up in Smoke.
I'll add other films
History of the World Part 1
Priscilla, Queen of the Dessert.
|There's a lot more of cult films than those listed in there.
You won't regret watching Donnie Darko, it's an excellent film. It might be a little weird and it makes you wonder a lot of things at the end, but that's what makes it so good.
Will check it out Danny.
|My top three faves:
|Penis - Vagina
|I don't agree with many of Wikipedia's choices but it becomes a bit difficult to decide exactly what is a cult film.
-Chuck & Buck
Are a few from my list of 27 :-P I also love John Hughes films but they seem too popular to me to be considered 'cult'.
|"Also big cult films that weren't included on that list...
The Godfather trilogy
Cheech and Chong"
then the Godfather , Scarface and Goodfellas :)
|My fave "cult" film is "Beyond the Valley of the Dolls". For those of you who also enjoy this film, it is tentatively scheduled to be released on dvd by Criterion later this year. I think a "cult" film is one that was not a great success upon first theatrical release, but gained a following upon re-release or release on home video. Some of my others are:
Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia
Two Lane Blacktop
Tombstone (with Kurt Russell)
Evil Dead II
Army Of Darkness (Evil Dead III)
Kevin Smith's "Jersey Trilogy" (consisting of four movies... LOL!)
I'll post more later when I can think straight.
|"Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia"
We've talked about the glory of Sam Peckinpah before, haven't we, DB? The Wild Bunch is a great movie.
|The Godfather (of course)
The Good, the Bad & the Ugly
Saturday Night Fever (?)(not really)
The Elephant Man
Rock 'n' Roll High School
Wayne's World (all right!)
|Rocky Horror Picture Show,Star Wars,LOTR,and Night of the Living Dead (hilarious movie)|
Lord of the Rings
and u cant beat a bit of Rocky Horror :D
|Ah, yes, the glory of Sam Peckinpah. He has a number of movies that could qualify as "cult" films; "Straw Dogs", "Convoy", "Ride the High Country", "Cable Hogue"...
And Warren Oates could contribute; "Cockfighter", "Drum", "Dillinger", "White Dawn", and "China 9, Liberty 37"
|Many of the films directed by David Lynch, Kevin Smith, Tim Burton, Stanley Kubrick, Spike Jonze, and Quentin Tarantino are considered cult films.
Also they could be considered cult directors.
I Spit on Your Grave
Dawn of the Dead
|The Italian Job (top of the list of my all-time fav film)
Spinal Tap (waves at Alli! :-)
James Bond (faves probably Live & Let Die, A View To A Kill, Goldfinger)
Star Wars (the ORIGINAL trilogy)
Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory
|Rocky Horror, Nightmare B4 x-mas, Cheech & Chong, Mommy Dearest and Donnie Darko
odd, yet good movies :P
|I would hardly call A Clockwork Orange a cult film.
Teenagers like to think that it is "cult" and "different" because it's not so well known now, but anyone who was around when it was released knows what it is.
|Bob The Shrek
|I was going to say Debbie Does Dallas, but I mis-read the heading.|
|Clash of the Titans|
|"I was going to say Debbie Does Dallas, but I mis-read the heading."
|Rocky Horror (of course!!!)
and Lord Of The Rings!
|*waves back at David Jones!* :^)|
|Interesting topic. Shoujo
Can I add some faves of mine
ichi the killer
Snake in Tne Eagles Shadow
The Way of The Dragon
One flew over the Cuckoo's nest
The remake of Dawn of the Dead, one bad ass of a movie
To Be continued....
|cripes...must i list them ALL Out?|
|Assault on Precinct 13
- 2 classics, IMHO. Unfortunatley I dont think either of them are extremly well known.
|"Assault on Precinct 13" is supposed to be John Carpenter's homage to Howard Hawk's "Rio Bravo", although it is hard to compare them since they are so different. All the same, I dig "Assault" also.|
Ichi!!! ;) :D
BTW The Warriors. The most memorable part of that film is the weird dude with the three glass bottles clinging them together going...
'Come out and playyyyyy'
|Spirited Away, and Garden State (saw a preview for it at Eternal Sunshine For The Spotless Mind) with Zach Braff, which looks awesome - plus, I'm gay for Zach Braff, and it doesn't appear to be getting a nationwide release.|
|Penis - Vagina
|"plus, I'm gay for Zach Braff"
You're such a tease, Lester.
Man I really need to get laid.
Edit: How lovely that my 1000th post would be this one. I feel so proud.
Edit: But at least I'm not *this* desperate: link
|Well congrats then Jeffrey.
|It must be a sign, dear boy.|
|LOL with Shoujo!
The weird dude "Luther" (david patrick kelly) and "Ajax" (James remar) both reappear in another walter hill film "48 hours"
The weird guy plays, surprise surprise, another risible character called "luther".......heheheh, whilst james remar plays another wired psychotic character, the slightly unhinged!! "Ganz"
the weird bloke also plays 2 more losers, "T-Bird" the guy who gets blown up in the car in the excellent Cult Film "The Crow" and the guy who gets dangled over a cliff by Arnold "John" Matrix in "Commando"
If you watch the warriors , the girl and some of the other warriors, are trying desperatley hard not to laugh during the weird dudes pathetic attempt at intimidation
btw the kung fu obsessed "riffs" rock, the orphans suck and The Warriors has one of the best opening 10-15 mins sequence in any film
Don Juan de Marco
....long story short, films with Johnny Depp :D
Star Trek I love that too
Labyrinth with David Bowie
umm....can't think of anything else but Im sure I forgot quite a few
|Whatever the name of the gang is that was dressed up in baseball uniforms and had their faces painted in "The Warriors", THEY rocked! An early inspiration for the WCW wrestler, Sting?|
|The "Baseball Furys" were the anaemic lot, who certainly looked the part, one of them was greeted with the immortal line "I 'm gonna stick that bat up ya ass and turn you into a popsicle" sadly , they were left battered and bruised by the Coney Island Boppers with Chief tormenter Ajax contemptuously remarking "Figured they were wimps"......|
|Lotr and The Green Mile|
|Ah, the "Baseball Furys". And who could forget such classic lines as, "the chicks are packed!" and "call me Swan". Or "why don't you just walk around with a mattress tied to your back?"|
|Definitely THE WALL and...
LIFE OF BRIAN, HOLY GRAIL, MEANING OF LIFE- those are truly cult ones...!!!!
Also FIGHT CLUB was pretty amazing...
|The Blues Brothers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!|
Requiem for a Dream
Evil Dead 1/2/3
|Withnail and I has to be the best cult fim ever made! I implore anyone to give it a watch if they haven't already!|
