cult flicks, your favorites

Postby Kriswest » Sat Sep 06, 2014 2:36 am

My favorite, Southland Tales,
I am watching Legion right now, another flick trying to be cult status. The actors in both are known A list and A list support actors.
Legion does not compare to the quality of Southland but, are cult flicks supposed to be anything other than fun?
I will be bitchy, cranky, sweet, happy, kind, pain in the ass all at random times from now on. I am embracing my mentalpause until further notice. Viva lack of total control!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This is not a test,,, this is my life right now. Have a good day and please buckle up for safety reasons,, All those in high chairs, go in the back of the room.

*Primer
The Crow
Dark City
*Donnie Darko (a Richard Kelly film, like Southland)
Waking Life (not sure if cult status)
*Mr. Nobody

The three I starred made the biggest impression on me when I first saw them.

Never heard of Primer or Mr. Nobody. I will look them up.
What about Sin City? That was a good one also. It has a sequel coming out. I have only seen one advertisement for it late at night/early morning. :) Cult time I suppose...

This hardly registers a cult film, as it is virtually unknown it seems, but I have to ut "Trop de Bonheur" on this list. I saw it when I was 16 on a movie channel we had, and I recorded it the next morning. I watched that tape so often that it broke.

I wonder what happened to the actress Estelle Perron.

Well I am getting a good list to check out. I think these movies that are off the main stream are art. Most movies are about entertainment and money, not art. I do enjoy finding A list actors in an obscure cult flick that they never talk about. It gives them at least some respect as an artist.

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0084589/

The Adventures of Baron Munchausen
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0096764/?ref_=nv_sr_1

The Hour of the Pig (also called The Advocate)
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0107146/?ref_=nv_sr_1

The Tenant
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0074811/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1

Dude, Mr. Nobody was awesome.

A "god" who deserves worship will be humble enough to reject it; A "god" who demands worship will not be worthy of it.

All smoke fades, as do all delicate mirrors shatter.

"Science Fiction today ~ Science Fact tomorrow"

Change is inevitable, it can only be delayed or sped up. Choose wisely.

Silent Running
Harold and Maude
Escape from New York
My dinner with Andre
Journey to the center of the earth: with James Mason and a very young Pat Boone.
Crack in the world: scientifically outdated about 5 minutes after it was made.
Petrified forest: young Humphrey Bogart.
We're no Angels: once again Humphrey Bogart and very, very funny.
1776

"Those who sacrifice liberty for security
wind up with neither."
"Ben Franklin"

The RNC has announced that's its changing the Republican emblem from
an elephant to an condom because it more clearly reflects the party's political
stance: a condom stands for inflation, halts production, destroys the next generation,
protects a bunch of pricks, and gives one a sense of security while screwing others.

I haven't really watched movies recently, other than a trailer of 500 MPH Storm. I guess all of the movies made by Don Hertzfeldt are real good, especially Rejected.

Anything by the Marx Brothers... famous for their one-liners and instrumental talents (classically-trained to orchestral performance level), as well as their slapstick comedic tomfoolery.
