    post yer fave cult movie

    over the years, and lots lately, folks have been makin vague references to some great old cult or lesser know "B" movies in here. i thought it might be cool to see what crops up when the question is asked, "whats yer fave off beat flick"?

    its way hard for me to pin just 1 down cuz theres so much out there but if forced to i may have to go with the '96 buddy cop movie, running scared. cant remember a flick where i laughed from start to finish like this one.

    the openin credits. yeah, thats fee waybill singin the title track.


    and actin like a cpl boobs in miami. i think i saw tidybeard at 4:10.
    No, I'm NOT back!

    Don't know if this movie ever achieved Cult status but

    "Stranger Than Paradise". Jim Jarmusch did this one. If you do watch it you need to absolutely watch every second of it, no talking, no going to the fridge every five minutes. Pretty soon you just get immersed into the little world that is this movie. As such, I think it is hilarious.

    And one that isn't on my list, and should NEVER appear on anyone's list - it's that bad. Night of the Lupus. It's even gets ST geek points.

    Anything directed by Christopher Nolan or David Fincher is pure gold. Remember Seven?

    Quentin? His best effort: Reservoir Dogs.

    Surprised no one mentioned Evil Dead yet.

    I'll toss out a few more.

    Hard Boiled. Chow Yun Fat at his best.

    Any Spaghetti Western, But "High Plains Drifter" and "For a Few Dollars More" come to mind. Really, anything Clint has done.

    Raising Arizona.

    Bladerunner.

    and Mad Max.

    Okay, to add to my rep

    ...as a focking weirdo, creep, what the hell am I doing here? I tend to like the oddball stuff,i.e. "Being John Malkovich"; "Blue Velvet"; "7 Grams" et. al.

    Buutttttttt....

    Eraserhead. see it, and be disturbed. In a good way, like a good Homer.
    It was definitely a cult flick, and takes a certain mindset to appreciate, but David Lynch is from another planet, doncha tink?
