    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.

    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.

    Pulp Fiction
    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?

    In no particular order:

    Monty Python's Meaning of Life esp "every sperm is sacred" bit below:

    <object width="425" height="355"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/U0kJHQpvgB8&hl=en"></param><param name="wmode" value="transparent"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/U0kJHQpvgB8&hl=en" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" width="425" height="355"></embed></object>

    Body Heat: Wow, Kathleen Turner looked good.

    Scanners: David Cronenberg's psychological thriller

    The Fly (1986ish) and Dead Ringers: More Cronenberg stuff.

    Altered States: More William Hurt

    Trainspotting: Mr. Obi Wan never looked so disgusting.

    Anything with Sybil Danning in the early 80's.

    Magnolia, and maybe too new to be dubbed a cult favorite but it may be someday,

    There Will Be Blood, both P.T. Anderson flicks.

    And finally Life of Brian, another Monty Python troupe masterpiece.

    One movie I can't stand that seems to have become somewhat of a cult movie is Napoleon Dynamite...didn't get it.


    How about the Alien series...actually the first 2 and maybe the 3rd but after that they just became stupid. And now the whole Alien vs Predator thing has gone way to far.

    Lotsa good ones up there. My contributions:

    1. SLAPSHOT - if you like hockey at all, but can still laugh at it.

    2. HAPPY GILMORE - if you like hockey, and find golf silly.

    AND A HUGE +1 FOR RONNY'S CONTRIBUTION "PITCH BLACK".

    Foreign goodies

    What about a couple of brilliant films by Jean-Pierre Jeunet?

    *Delicatessen

    *The City of Lost Children (dark, surreal, and co-starring Ron Perlman)-- one of the best

    *Amelie

    If cult classics were based on memorable quotes, I think the Coen brothers and Monty Python works would be at the top of my list:

    From the Big Lebowski: "The Dude abides. I don't know about you but I take comfort in that. It's good knowin' he's out there. The Dude. Takin' 'er easy for all us sinners. Shoosh. I sure hope he makes the finals."

    From The Holy Grail: "I don't want to talk to you no more, you empty headed animal food trough wiper. I fart in your general direction. Your mother was a hamster and your father smelt of elderberries. "
    The great use of life is to spend it for something that will outlast it.
    William James

    {Principal Skinner} Hmm. Whoever did this is in very deep trouble.
    {Martin} And a sloppy speller too. The preferred spelling of 'wiener' is w - i - e - n - e - r, although 'e - i' is an acceptable ethnic variant.
