Default Cult movies - what is your favorite - what is your favorite part

Dave (planet 10) and I are big fans of

"the Adventures of Buckeroo Banzai Across the Eighth Dimension" if you haven't checked it out, it's a real treasure that can be enjoyed over and over again.

One of the neat things is that it seems that no matter how many times you see it, each time you see it you pick up something new that you haven't seen before.

Dave's moniker Planet 10 comes from the movie and his business is named Planet 10 Enterprises.

My sig "wherever you go, there you are" is a line from that movie.

Any other cult movie folks/fans hanging around here?

Ken

Don't get Phred, or myself, started on that. And I suspect that you can add Cap'n Pass to that list.

I don't think that there is enough room on this server.......

Default MY THING

Hey guys,

Just to show how European I really am:

All movies by Louis Bunuel,Carlos Saura to name just a few.

Bet you never heard of them?

Then there is the Italian masters too : Fellini to name one.

How about Skandinavia with Igmar Bergman?

To be honnest very few American movies impress me,way too shallow to watch more then casually.
Given a choice I'ld rather watch a good series on BBC or a documentary on National Geographic.
Way too many U.S. movies are shoveled down our throat since the Marshall plan.


I am no movie buff,just getting a bit older then the rest of the world.

Cheers,

Used to be a big fan of Austin Powers. Must have watched it a zillion times. While in college i was home for the weekend. Went to friends house and started watching AP, this guy and I knew all the lines and were of couse playing along with the tape. His mother came in and offered $20 not to watch it. What a deal! So we went to get some food, it was good times. Later i rented a house with him and one other guy, he and i both had a copy anf kept them in the same place. People would vist and often ask why we had two copies of AP our reply was always that the third roommate was to lazy to get his own. Haven't seen it in over two years but the weekend is coming up...

I will have to look into some of the titles above. I think Austin Powers is probably past its use by date. Thanks for the pointers.

The animated movie: Flåklypa Grand Prix (Bergkjöping Grand Prix).

Finally on DVD. Quality Norwegian/Swedish co-production from 1975.

Spaceballs, ghostbusters, batman 1 & 2 and terminator 1 & 2 but the last two are not realy cult movies cos they a quite popular i think.

And if there was ever a RedDwarf movie made i would probably add that to my list too.

Terminator One definitely, far more gripping than the sequel. Like all good DIY, the less money you have the more wisely you spend it.

Early Cary Grant B&W's esp. Philidelphia Story.

Also the original Winnie the Pooh movies, ... & the Honey Tree. A true classic. (Alright, perhaps I was younger then, but they're still good)

American movies shallow? Quid est hoc?: "On the Waterfront" shallow?, "White Heat" shallow? "Intolerance" shallow? I mean, how many times can you watch "The Seventh Seal" before you too want to take the black pill.

and with respect to the little polemic, perhaps you would have preferred the opposite of the Marshal Plan, i.e. the Stalin Plan, ask anyone who grew up in Poland or Hungary in the 1950's:<p>
