View Full Version : Top 5 Cult Movies

Okay, let me start this post as saying I am no movie expert. My main purpose of making this thread is to find some great movies to watch that may not have critical acclaim.

I would love to see what are the favorite movies of some of the people on this board that didn't necessarily get critical acclaim or huge box office numbers.

Also, let me preface this post as saying that I am 28 years old and may not of seen some of the older flicks, although I am very open to their viewing.

And finally, my list. Please feel free to pick it apart and tell me where I may be wrong. These are simply movies that I have enjoyed very much through the years and I think have stood up through time.

1. 'The Big Lebowski' - Good movie and very funny. Never really get tired of watching it and had great acting all around. Something that you have to view several times to really appreciate it.

2. 'Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas' - Inspired this post as I just watched it on cable. Great movie with so much going on that you pick up sometime new and different every time you watch it.

3. 'Swingers' - It's money, baby. Great comedy that is like spanish fly to a date that has never seen it. I've read that it may be becoming somewhat dated, but I disagree. You have to take it as a mid-late 90's movie just as you'd view a movie from the past.

4. 'Clerks' - A classic raunchy comedy and Kevin Smith's first movie. In order to really appreciate it for what it is I think you have to ignore his later works with Jay and Silent Bob as the center piece.

5. 'Election' - Pretty decent stars in this flick but it was pretty risky for them, as well. Not sure if it did very well at the box office, but no one I know seems to have seen it.

Honorable Mention:

'Dazed and Confused' - Has grown in popularity with age but is still a great flick. And it has some football mojo going for it.

'Kill Bill 2' - Loses points because it was very critically acclaimed and had a pretty big budget. But it is still one of my favorite movies of all time and I believe Tarentino's best effort.

'Office Space' - Hilarious and didn't really pick up momentum until it hit DVD, and even then it took a while.

I am sure I have forgot some so please remind me. I look forward to seeing the responses!

How the hell is that a cult movie?

Edit: FIGHT CLUB?! MOTHER****ING FIGHT CLUB?

"The term cult film is used to describe a film that has had little to no success commercially and critically upon its initial release but has later spawned a small, but devoted and usually obsessive fanbase, however there are various exceptions." Wiki (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cult_film)

May not be a cult favorite but I love that movie.

Fight Club

Answered your own question.
It's not so much the Wizard of Oz, but the way it was viewed with Dark Side of the Moon as the only soundtrack. It was very much a cult movie under those circumstances.
So what's your choice??

From what I understand it did.
There was a major buzz that created a cult following of people who viewed it that way. It was a nationwide phenomenon that lasted a couple of years. For all I know, it's still going on. Before your time I imagine.
Not all cult movies are little ones made by John Waters etc. Some become cult classics over time. Forbidden planet is another example, a box office hit that has become a cult classic.

And the original DOTD was great. I had the old double VHS, unedited, that came up to almost 3 hours. But I'm a huge Zombie flick nut.

I'll go with 5 cult sport films:

Slap Shot (Paul Newman and the Hanson brothers, what more do you need to say)

On Any Sunday (by Bruce Brown with Steve McQueen. If you are into Motorcycle racing esp. dirt it is a must own)

Gran Prix (the movie itself is O.K., but the race footage and cinematography by Frankenheimer are amazing. This type of access will never happen again in a major racing series)

Miracle (my Bro played for the DU Pioneers late 70's-80's and took me with his buddies to the 80 Olympics just to watch the hockey team. Beating the Russians and winning the gold against Finland was even better than the Bronco's winning the Super Bowl....it really was, and this movie captured it all)

World's Fastest Indian (Just a really cool quirky movie about so much more than going fast on a motorcycle. Anthony Hopkins has said it is his favorite movie over everything he has done. It really isn't about the bike...it is about the man who was a national hero in New Zealand because of his efforts at Bonneville)

Phat Endy already tossed out
Vision Quest (just on tonight on ESPN Classic....Linda Fiorentino's first flick, don't know exactly why, but man did she do it for me in that movie) I had roommates in the Marine Corps that were on the All Marine Wrestling Team, they wore out three or four VHS tapes of that one in a year!

Yeah, the director's cut did clear up a lot of stuff (if that's what you want, which some people may not).

I guess another cultish film I really like is Being John Malkovich. There are bunch I'm forgetting...

Too many people are confusing underappreciated with Cult. Cult movies have psycho followings, like Rocky Horry Picture Show or Army of Darknes...they are almost always poor production movies. And none of the movies in the original post are anything but big hollywood budget movies--while all good, they aren't Cult, just simply haven't gotten their due--save for the Big Leboski which is widely acclaimed.

Just read the entire thread, and theres alot of movies that ARE NOT cult films on here. Ive read alot of articles that say that Rocky Horror Picture Show is/was the greatest "cult film" ever.
Now i think thats because the definition of "cult film" is that it was overlooked originally when it came out in theatres and did poorly at the box office. Right?
Or is there another way of defining "cult" films?

From what ive seen and read, "Bladerunner" was a box office flop and received really poor reviews. Only years later was it acclaimed for its vision of the future and received the "cult" tag because of this. Ive read that its considered the 2nd greatest "cult" film of all time. Office space also is a movie that was a box office failure, but is now a part of movie legend.

Fight club?!?!? Thats a fincher movie i think. ALOT of people went to see this movie and it at least did well at the box office, based on a book alot of people read. I dunno, just doesnt seem to fit the "cult" movie theme to me, but i'm not a movie buff, so whatever.

Also, wasnt the Road Warrior and Mad Max considered to be 2 of the greatest "cult" films ever?
And Resevior Dogs wasnt a movie i ever heard about being at the box office either. I would say this movie would be a "cult" movie, but True Romance isnt. Just too popular as a box office hit.
I recently saw this weird movie with the Batman guy in it. I think its called the Mechanic or something. Weird freakin movie. Somewhat of a "cult" theme to me. Never heard of it, and yet it had a very popular actor in it. freaky movie. He wouldnt sleep, ever.

Is there really is a sure fire definition of 'cult' films?
Are Star Trek and Star Wars 'cult' films? Box office hits with a 'cult' following. In the case of Start Trek, the 'cult' already existed, but does that mean the films don't qualify?
Plenty of movies that were box office hits have, over the passage of time, become 'cult' movies, or have 'cult' followings.
Some people believe that a movie must be a small, indie production to qualify. The Blair Witch project is an example of a movie that took on 'cult' status because of the internet buzz. Which only proves that a movie can be crap and still qualify as 'cult.'
The story of 'O', on the other hand. :P

Oh so it has a "cult" following! I didnt define a "cult" movie that way! OK! I get it!
I can see how someone would put a movie like Pulp Fiction into a "cult" list now. It has a large following and is a movie that is constantly phrased by people.
See to me, i couldnt understand that. A movie that was so popular at the box office and had a lot of popular actors wanting to be in it, and had a lot of academy award nominations to me just didnt fall into that category. Whatever.

I think people can argue the definition of 'cult movie' in several ways.
Asking some of the 'art house' crowd the same question would bring on disdain if anyone suggested to them a major studio release has 'cult movie' status.
Many of the movies listed in this thread, for instance, don't have a cult following, but might be regarded as out of the mainstream.
Really, we're all making this $hit up as we go. ;D

Yeah, like Fight Club being a "cult" movie to me is a little bit of a reach.
Heres a VERY popular movie made by a VERY popular director about a VERY popular book with 2 VERY Popular actors which is seen by millions of people, with a plot about a "cult" following of guys who go around fighting each other to release stress and tension in their lives and build this "cult" into a mass hysteria of crazy, "cult"-like operations to destroy popular culture is a little bit of a reach to me. Seems like the whole point to the movie was to bring this "cult" of a book to the mainstream audience en mass.

I never saw it in the theatre, but have seen it a billion times on VHS/DVD. This is a Bill Murray classic! One of my favorite scenes in this movie is when he initially meets Dr. Leo Marvin (Richard Dreyfuss). He fakes tourettes syndrome and then explains that "if he fakes, it means he doesn't have it".

Hysterical!!!

I know many of you are saying to yourself, "Doctor...Leo...Marvin". Hilarious!

I think this might qualify as a cult movie, especially since it's become more popular in a post-Patroit Act America.

GlennGary GlennRoss- Greatest salesman movie ever. And an allstar cast-Al Pacino, Jack Lemon, a young Kevin Spacy, Alec Baldwin & a few more.

Memento- If you like suspense/mystery's, rent this.

Freaks- Made in the 30's. Was banned in Europe for many years, because real circus freaks were used. If you like camp and/or weirdness, you'll love this.

Ed Wood- Someone already mentioned this, but don't forget the real Ed Wood's, Plan 9 from Outer Space.

And God Spoke- I might be one of about 3 people that may of seen this. But good "mockumentary" in the vein of Spinal Tap. Has a lot of washed up actors like Soupy Sales and Jan from Brady Bunch that are perfect for this movie. The movie is about a couple of real bad producers/directors that make a bible epic movie. The irony? The movie is so bad, it eventually becomes a cult classic

Reefer Madness- I am surprised no one has mentioned this yet. Would be in the cult classic hall of fame if there was one.

Okay, let me start this post as saying I am no movie expert. My main purpose of making this thread is to find some great movies to watch that may not have critical acclaim.

I would love to see what are the favorite movies of some of the people on this board that didn't necessarily get critical acclaim or huge box office numbers.

Also, let me preface this post as saying that I am 28 years old and may not of seen some of the older flicks, although I am very open to their viewing.

One of the finest movies that I've ever seen is "The Earthing" Starring William Holden and Ricky Schroeder. It has a real cult following and I'm part Of the cult in this case.

The following is a review that I found on the web. It says everything that I'd like to say only better than I am able. I think the reason that it didn't become a hit was because the name of the movie suggests a Si-Fi movie which it isn't.

Cute" he may have been, but Rick(y) Schroder -- before puberty -- was one of filmdom's most sensitive and skillful child performers. And William Holden, far from being one to "add to" a list of modern man-and-boy bonding stories, in this 1980 film virtually founded the category.

I've seen this excellent film three times -- always on late-nite TV. Leonard Maltin gives it two-and-a-half stars: "OK family drama." Yet, over half of its IMDB viewers rated it a 10. Why on earth hasn't it received wider public acclaim??!

At 62 (this was his next-to-last film), Holden looks like he really is terminally ill. The cockles of his heart never are warmed to the kid (that we can see, anyway).

He's bone-weary, making his painful way to the ruins of his long-deserted family home to die, But this squalling, spoiled, self-centered kid is stranded. The man would like to ignore him, but the boy's obvious vulnerability won't let him. And as his strength fails, he could use some help himself.

So they make their way, conjointly, to his dying-place. And on the way, he tries to teach the boy how to survive in the wilderness -- for the child will soon be utterly alone -- and reach civilization.

How and what he teaches him is fascinating -- both practical and subtle. He plunges the city-bred boy from pampered narcissism to basic verities and respect for life and Life. In turn, the child's unevadable need forces this bitter, used-up man to dredge up his humanity and, with his last energy, give it out; to do the right thing.

Both of them change and grow. And it's quietly beautiful. In a sense, this is a coming-of-age film with no age boundaries. Maybe it's a "coming-into-humanity" film. See it. And grasp again (or for the first time) the dignity and beauty that humanness can be.

BTW It is no longer published on VCR and has never been published on CD but can ocassionaly be seen on The Movie Channel. Also used copies can be found on the web. Sometimes with a price tag of $50 to $60. I'm glad I have my copy.

Swingers is one of the best and anyone too young to remember it (or out of the loop) should see this. Yes, it is over 10 years old but it holds true about guys and girls (babies in the movie). Plus, Vince Vaughn, Jon Favorou (sic) and the guy from Office Space are young and up and comers. Plus, I am into that type of culture so it works for me. I always loved Raising Arizona with Nicolas Cage (first starting role) and John from Rosanne is in it. I want to say a former 70s NFL player (Raiders?) is the it too. Great B movie and funny as hell. If someone hasnt said it ,but I know few here dig it for some reason, is.... ARMY OF DARKNESS. Strange flick. Mad Max movies are cult films. Started seeing them when Mel Gibson made it big but the only one that had mass appeal at the time of its release was the one with Tina Turner.

Great movie taken from American Graffiti. Tony Danza is in this flick among other notables. Good soundtrack and kind of a Porkys theme of screwing with the cops too. Recommend this one! BTW: If you havent ever seen Porkys (and at least Porkys 2), find it, own it and watch it.

I remember that one, and the main thing I couldn't get over was Sean Penn, because I had just recently seen Fast Times at Ridgemont High, and pretty much assumed they just found a guy to play Spicoli who WAS like Spicoli. Then I saw him in Bad Boys, and thought, "Wow, this guy can really act."

Yeah, i agree. However his talent is endless. I just watched the flick he directed "Into the Wild" about the kid who decided to find himself on the road after graduating from Emory. Man, what a powerful flick, and to add to the quality of the flick, Eddie Vedder did the entire soundtrack for the movie and the music is a perfect fit! I had the soundtrack prior to seeing the movie (I am a HUGE PJ/Vedder fan) but after seeing the flick, it's that much better.

I didn't think it had much to do with how popular or big the movie was, just how dedicated the fans are to the movie, like a cult following.

That movie is great, saw a documentary on it awhile back and emery wasn't even trying out for that role but rather he was helping Kubrick in deciding what actor should play that role by sitting in for auditions and coa. Well, after hundreds of auditions Kubrick could not pick a single actor because Emery did such a good job in teaching them the role that he then wanted Emery to be in the movie...and the rest is history.

I don't have the box office numbers, but I'm fairly certain this movie is currently more popular than when it first came out:

Ferris Bueller's Day Off

Bueller? Bueller? Bueller?

Thanks for the input guys. Good suggestions so far and I will definitely check them out.

I have never watched Wizard of Oz to Dark Side of the Moon but always have wanted to. I assume it doesn't run all the way through. Anyone know where to start it?

Well there are a lot of cult classics built around TV shows...especially Sci fi...Firefly begat Serenity largely because of the fans who lobbied and kept it alive. Star Trek got cancelled 2 or 3 years into it's original run and it started the biggest cult fan of all the Trekkies (you could argue Star Wars, but that movie made tons of money out the gate so I don't think it's really a cult classic).
