    cult movies

    Whats ur favourite cult movie?

    Mines:
    Reservoir Dogs
    Boondock Saints
    Fight Club
    Equilibrium
    Hard Boiled
    Blade (the 1st one)
    Ghost Dog
    After all, dog is a dog. A duck is a duck. But a cat is a person.

    Those are actually cult movies? I'm too young to be getting old, so ... well, maybe i'll let Reservoir Dogs count. I'm adding Taxi Driver to that.

    I don't think some people here understand what cult films are. Here's the definition from wikipedia:

    Most movies considered "cult films" failed to achieve mainstream success upon original theatrical release, often grossing more money in video rentals and sales than in theater tickets. In many cases (but not all cases), the film hardly makes an impression with the general public and critics are often apathetic as well. However, a small, devoted group of viewers, often "film buffs" or film students, show an extreme appreciation of the film.

    Alien, Saving Private Ryan, The Matrix, and Pulp Fiction (as well as some others on these lists) are absolutely not cult classics.

    However, movies like Bloodsucking Freaks, Repo Man, Naked Lunch, Office Space, and Blade Runner are considered Cult Films.

    The Fritz Lang or the anime version?... I've seen both (the oldest movie I've seen wholly, 1927)... Amazingly enough, both have very similar storylines... I'm still trying to get into more silent films, and I liked the ending for the anime version with Ray Charle's "I Can't Stop Loving You" playing...

    Six String Samuri...this movie is the shizznittlebam...weird, funny, full of music by the Red Elvises

    Doom Generation...I wanted to take a shower or something after I was done watching that one

    Liquid Sky...80's new wave movie...what the world would look like if everyone shot up heroin and hung out under black lights all day long.

    Shultze Gets The Blues...kind of a sad, but none the less great movie about a retired German mine worker who discovers he loves Zydeco music after a lifetime of playing Polka.
