Title: Favorite Cult Films?

Besides Battle Royale, there's gotta be some more you guys like, right?

I gots to say, the most formidable cult film I've ever seen (and Slayer can back me up on this one) is The Warriors. Not critically acclaimed in any way whatsoever, but man if it ain't one hell of a movie. Some damn classic characters (Ajax being my personal favourite), smooth cinematics, great-ass quotes, and a shytload of behind-the-scenes stories. For example, the actor playing the Fox was acting like a jerkoff and walked off the set. Fox was scripted to be in the whole movie, but instead director Walter Hill decided to throw him in front of a train and kill him off. And ever wondered why they threw a jacket on Mercy? She broke her arm in a previous scene so they used it to cover up the cast. Fuckin' eh!

The crow is my favourite cult film after Battle Royale. It is just fucking brilliant, everything about it rocks, it's so good I well up every time I watch it. Same goes for Braveheart, though I hardly think that constitutes ad cult.

The evil dead, its got to be one of the best out there, fucking funny with the right amount of gore, who could go wrong.

^_^ The Crow was an 80's comic before the movie.

Yeah, and bread started out as wheat, but I won't eat the stuff.

What I basically mean is I tried reading the comics and hated them, as with Lord of The Rings, the movie is superior to the book/comic.

Bloody_Fists - May 14, 2006 06:42 PM (GMT)
that is where your wrong, mostly any movie that came from a book or comic is shit, apart from the crow, the movie was fuckin awsome but then again so was the comic, or fight club, just some movies are easier to translate to a movie and just generally more liked by the director i dont know, you get directors who just want to make money and put the hulk in a film, and theyve got millions out of it.


i do realise this makes no sense

Re-read what I said, I only stated two cases, I will agree in most cases the book is superior, funny you should mention fight club, because I loved that movie until I read the book, now I think the movie is shit but the book is the greatest thing mankind has ever acomplished.

In my opinion there are only three major cases where the movie beat the book: LOTR, The Crow and Trainspotting (and I am an Irvine Whelsh fan, but Trainspotting is by no means his best work).

I thought the LOTR movie was crap, the only thing they did better then the books was to remove Tom friggin Bombadil.


oh other cult movies I like: Anything by Takashi Miike.

Wild Zero

Goodness, that film was shit.

Ummm... I don't really know what a 'cult film' is. But I just re-watched Happiness of the Katakuris again today and I love it just as much. So awesome XDDD

And Old Boy. That's a goooood film.

Bloody_Fists - May 14, 2006 07:21 PM (GMT)
Ive been meaning to buy old boy, i saw a review on jonathon ross's asian invasion and thought it looked cool as fuck, lol love the scene wher he eats that live octopus,, how stoned was he when filming that scene?

Sephy - May 14, 2006 07:26 PM (GMT)
His family's uhh Buddist (i probably have the wrong religion) so everytime he ate an octopus he had to pray to it for forgiveness, and he had to eat like 6 to get the take :P

I love OldBoy, i've been meaning to buy the other 2 in the director's "Vengence" trilogy, Sympathy for Lady Vengance looks kickass.

Well , bearing in mind this is all a matter of opinion but, in mine, LOTR=Worst books of all time.

I quite liked them, tho i dont think theyre the "best books ever!11" liek some people do, but i cant beleive the movies left out the burning of the shire, I loved that to pieces! ;_;
plus i'm a diehard fan od the crappy old cartoon LOTR.

Swoosh - May 14, 2006 10:24 PM (GMT)
I like Takashi Miike films. Audition was really good as well, although it was a little sick... the son was hot though XDDD

Star Wars= Cult film?

I was just wondering, I mean, tons and tons of people know about it. But that doesn't always mean it's a cult film....

I figure it is because of many, many, many stormtroopers and Darth Vaders around when any movies are released.

And on side-note, love Chuck Palahniuk.

Greatest author ever, and that's a lot coming from someone like me, for I must admit I have a tendency to despise anything that romotely rings of 'Americana' (I almost totally flipped when I heard a rumour about an American BR, luckily it seems it was totally unfounded) Don't get me wrong guys, it's not racism, it's just a general lack of inerest and a bit of anger at Hollywood stealing glory from Britain with movies like Enigma and Saving Private Ryan.

But Chuck Palahniuk is the exception, in my entire library of a good couple of hundred books he is the only American author I can stand to display (except Tennesse Williams, I hate him but I had to study him for my first year of A-levels and I keep his plays as a momento) and I display him with pride, I think he is the best, end of story.

Not trying to offend any Americans here, everyone dislikes some things, I dislike most American things.

Lien - June 2, 2006 11:29 PM (GMT)
Favorite work from him? I haven't finished all his books yet, but I'm liking Survivor a lot.

Minase - June 4, 2006 12:07 PM (GMT)
Obviously fight club, he's never surpassed it to date.

Diary was bloody good though.

Haunted wasn't as intriguing as those but was certainly an interesting piece of satire, and a real cringer :(
