Lately, I've been obsessing over my favorite cult movie, Highlander. It's a great story about immortality and the struggle between good and evil, but it's doomed to forever remain a cult movie because it's told in a nonlinear fashion that confuses casual viewers (and has a particular 80's aesthetic that not everyone cares for). What are your favorite cult movies--films that bewilder or repulse "normal" people, but are very appealing to you and like-minded people?
Oh, my dad showed me highlander the other night. It was quite good. I was surprised to see Clancy Brown in it.
@Matoro Glad you liked it! Yeah, Clancy Brown is great as always in it, and it came out 8 or 10 years before he became really successful.
@Marendex_T17 Tron is great! Not so much the sequel, unfortunately (at least IMO).
Evil Dead 3 is... Groovy.
Think UHF counts as a cult movie?
"Do they speak English in what?"
Then that's my favorite
Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure.
Pretty odd movie, but still fun to watch.
Is the Ocean's (11, 12, 13) series considered a cult series? Because if so, then w00t w00t, all aboard the cult-train.
Also, 9 might be considered cult.
Both of these are pretty swell things.
EXCELLENT!!!!!! air guitars An excellent choice I might add
I think the Ocean's movies were a too successful to qualify as "cult." I think 9 might qualify, especially since I almost never hear references to it.
Does the Matrix count?
I kinda doubt it....
I dunno; it is pretty well-known, but it does have an extremely devoted following.
I only recently saw it
needless to say the Matrix Reloaded is going in the DVD player in a few days
DON'T DO IT MAN
I kid, but only sort of. The sequels really don't live up to the original at all; for a lot of people, they actually taint the original. Reloaded has its moments, I guess, but the third one is, like, 90 minutes of action scenes with 5 minutes of actual plot...and the plot isn't very good. It might be ok as an action movie on its own, but as a sequel to something as profound as the Matrix, it fails hard. :-/
We couldn't get Matrix: Revolution at our library, so we just have the first and Reloaded. I'll take your advice about Revolution into account though.
Be forewarned that Reloaded ends on a pretty big cliffhanger (much bigger than the first one did). And what I said about Revolutions somewhat applies to it as well, though not to quite the same degree. TBH, if you want more Matrix, I would recommend the Animatrix over the sequels, if you can get your hands on it.
