Sorry for being so dense but what is a "cult" movie?

A cult film is a film that has acquired a highly devoted but relatively small group of fans. Often, cult movies have failed to achieve fame outside of the small fanbases, however, there have been exceptions that have managed to gain fame amongst mainstream audiences

Pretty much didn't do good at the box office. ;)

Mysterious Skin was really good. I don't think i was in the right mood to watch Old Boy - I'll have to make another attempt. Netflix has been a great source of obscure stuff. Check out Bela Tarr's flix too, an amazing/strange Hungarian director. Also Michael Haneke's Funny Games, which he's just remade in English with Michael Pitt (not sure why). All of Haneke's stuff is pretty cold-blooded.

Don't forget Blade Runner. See the new print on a big screen if you can.

Yeah, I have so much obscure stuff at home it creeps some of my friends & family out. I just tell them that I am a film afficionado, and they dont understand what a good film is. Haneke is an excellent director, will try Bela Tarr.
I got a good one for you, its a French film called Man bites Dog, ever heard of that one? That one is a classic and another good French one is Irreversable
its pretty rough to watch at times though.

http://www.thespinningimage.co.uk/cultfilms/images/359.jpg

What's the Matter with Helen?
Year: 1971
Director: Curtis Harrington
Stars: Debbie Reynolds, Shelley Winters, Dennis Weaver, Micheal MacLiammoir, Agnes Moorehead, Samee Lee Jones, Helene Winston, Yvette Vickers, Timothy Carey
Genre: Horror
Rating: 6 (from 1 vote)
Review: In the 1930s a sensational murder case results in two young men being put behind bars for life, but their mothers, Adelle (Debbie Reynolds) and Helen (Shelley Winters) become the victims of the public's anger and decide to move to California to open a talent school for little girls. All goes well until Helen believes that the threatening phonecalls they experienced back in their home town are starting again - could someone be out for revenge, or is the pressure getting to Helen?

Well most of the cult ones are good just not widely followed.
I dont think I would call terminator a cult one either, it was wildly popular at the time as was dances with wolves and a lot of others I have seen.
Another way to be a cult classic though is to be somewhat forgotten and then revived by die hard fans.

My opinion of a cult classic is a movie that is not going to be a summer blockbuster, does not get the media hype, is usually not a mega million dollar production, and the reason it becomes "cult" is because it is advertised word of mouth from person to person, and thats how it gains its popularity.

Harold and Maude

Harold: You hop in any car you want and just drive off? (she steals cars)
Maude: Well, not any car, I like to keep a variety. I'm always looking for the new experience.
Harold: I think you're upsetting people. I don't know if that's right.
Maude: Well, if some people get upset because they feel they have a hold on some things, I'm merely acting as a gentle reminder, here today, gone tomorrow, so don't get attached to things.


Wild at Heart....

Sailor: Did I ever tell ya that this here jacket represents a symbol of my individuality, and my belief in personal freedom?
Lula: About fifty thousand times.

Guy at Nightclub: You look like a clown in that stupid jacket.
Sailor: This is a snakeskin jacket! And for me it's a symbol of my individuality, and my belief... in personal freedom.
Guy at Nightclub: azzhole.


Blue Velvet....

Raymond: Do you want me to pour it Frank?
Frank Booth: No I want you to fxxk it. Pour the fxxkin' beer!

Frank Booth: Let's fxxk! I'll fxxk anything that moves!

What was the movie that Brian Bosworth was infiltrating a biker gang? Stupid movie but for some reason I liked it. Stone Cold or something like that. I go to a movie to be entertained not enlightened like some critics seem to think it should be. Quite a few horror flicks and comedies fit this cult category. Does Con Air qualify? I think it did too well at the box office to be called "cult".

Once upon a time in America is a great choice - i'm about due to see that one again (must be 10 discs long, hehe).




I need to see this again also, I stubbled upon some "mob" forum talking about this movie, how in the end "noddles" has this grin on his face, the theroy is everything was a opium dream, which IMO would be great for the film (most think it spoils it), but I feel Max's plot was to far fetched to pull off.

I'm not big into reading into alot of this stuff, and I'm not a big film buff, however this is one that seems to be differant everytime viewed, I first saw it at age 19 and thought it sucked compared to the godfather, now (being older) I think the first Godfather is pretty dumb after seeing it a bunch of times, OUATIA gets better everytime, GF2 is still a good though.

problem is I don't have time to view such a long film.

deer hunter was good, but very difficult to watch.

A couple I didn't see mentioned (I think)...


Barbarella (Jane Fonda)
Whatever Happened to Baby Jane (Bette Davis/Joan Crawford)


I personally define 'cult classic' (beside the usual way) as something that I can watch repeatedly and never truly grow tired of it...

like Charlton Heston did 'Woodstock' in 'Omega Man'...

Oh yeah...

Woodstock! :D

Eraserhead - totally bizarre but I couldn't stop watching it. LOL

River's Edge - horrible acting but I loved Keanu then.

Rocky Horror - it was more fun to watch the audience, which is saying a lot because I love the movie!

House of 1000 Corpses - Sherri Moon is HOT!
