Culter than cult

All weathers are wild, you know what this means? - Odin

There are innumerable seeds in the earth, innumerably many more than the reckoning of either living or dead trees- the sound of the seeds growing is deafening, and drowns out the sound of all the falling oceans of wood in the forests- but, perhaps, the sound made by the seeds can only be heard with our thoughts. - Parodites, 3rd Pentad

The strong do what they can, the weak accept what they must.

I had a great poster of Willow, took it from a magazine once, in my room as a kid. I never saw the movie.

Night on Earth looks promising.

See Willow. That is your imperative.

Mermaids. Another Winona Ryder flick.

"I am not a beautiful man".......oh yes you are.

Going Places, John Turturro, 2017 Can't wait (love that guy)

Turturro is directing, starring and wrote the screenplay, inspired by the 1974 French film “Going Places” (Les Valseuses), which starred Miou-Miou, Gérard Depardieu and Patrick Dewaere, directed by and based on the novel by Bertrand Blier.
As with the French film, (the French title is slang for “the testicles”) Turturro’s version follows a trio of misfits whose irreverent, sexually charged dynamic evolves into a love story as their spontaneous and flippant attitude backfires time and again. In the French film, Depardieu and Dewaere played young men who travel around France, committing petty crimes and running from the law. When they make enemies with a gun-toting hairdresser, their journey becomes one of constant escape.

After having watched Deck the Halls and Bullet Proof Monk, I am now watching my second favourite cult/B movie Hellboy 2: The Golden Army on Channel 5, followed by the Green Lantern on the same channel.. feeding my need for the visual and the cray cray.

Eraserhead, cos I knew Jack Nance back then.

I had forgotten about this movie.

It was excellent, I love Daniel Auteuil and Juliette Binoche.

The suicide scene was pretty disturbing.

In fact, I will watch it again.

^ spoiler alert!

lol yes, Caché warrants multiple viewings. I saw it 5 years ago. I want to watch it again, but it is a bit harrowing.
I actually re-watched Melancholia about 2 weeks ago. Gorgeously shot.

Having watched American Gangster last night.. after having seen it way back when, it's madness is still making me shake my head in disbelief today. An awesome watch, and a great way to escape reality for a while within the madness of the unfolding story and brash 70s getup.

Fight Club

When it was advertised on tv it looked stupid. I judged it wrongly, by a lot.

Someone other the author runs the author's website and it called, The cult.

cool thread, btw.

The Big Lebowski


I heard people get together for Lebowski parties, dress like their favorite characters. And a lot of people go as the Jesus pervert bowler.
