As I am watching Rocky Horror Picture Show right now, I wonder about other cult films and if anyone else watches this movie? What are your favorite cult films?

RHPS can only be watched at the ikky movie theater here in Munich on a saturday night, its just even more part of the cult being a part of the Guiness book of world records.

You get a funpack, that contains stuff. Like sprinkly stuff. Ask and you shall receive. Or else turn 360 degrees around when you're buying a ticket. The Lucky Bag stuff hanging on the wall? Buy it. Or memorise finely and recreate at home. And I did.

Diva

 

Betty Blue

 

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

 

Although I recently bought the BB DVD and it was more explicit than I remembered when I saw it years ago at the cinema (in the UK).

 

I could watch these films ceaselessly although the BB story has some pertinent bits which I find too sad.

The Good, the Bad and the Ugly – what a dam good film – I cannot believe that I don’t have a DVD copy of it – I try not to think that it was filmed in Spain though.

 

The Exorcist – scariest film of all time except the stupid bit were the mother is on the phone and the girl is in the background running up and down the stairs on her back like a spider.

 

The Devils

 

Psycho

 

King Kong (stupid but was watched every Xmas until a certain age)

 

Mad Max

 

Clock Work Orange (not my favourite but was or is a cult film)

 

Bridge Over the River Kwai

 

Gladiator

Ben-Hur

Quo Vadis – Peter Ustinov (as Nero) at his best

I must be the only person on this planet that hasn't seen the film or the live show of The Rocky Horror Picture Show - It did come to Munich not so long ago I guess I should have seen it then.

Tampopo

Oh how I love this film - when he trains the lass like a gymnast and she does the "Hai!" arms up end of routine pose hahhahhaa If you have it, lend it to me forthwith.

 

La Haine ... Picnic At Hanging Rock

Another 2 favourites of mine too, great camera work, amazing images, the music all works.

Don't really know what cult means here either.

 

I'd add:

Hard Boiled - the doves! Shooting with both hands! Death! Gore! Chow Yung Fat!

Aguirre, the wrath of god or Nosferatu - nobody does scary mental intense like Kinski, he's hypnotic

Eat, Drink, Man, Woman - I like food films and there's serious food in there, like an Asian "Babette's Feast"

Chinese Ghost Story part I - One of the funniest films ever made, for me at least

Romper Stomper/Once Were Warriors - La Haine goes south

Harold & Maude - When I'm really old, I wanna be like Maude haha

 

And someone has to mention it: The Big Lebowski

Heathers? But that reminds me of TT some days ;)

And even though it is really a mini-series rather than a film: Lars von Trier's The Kingdom

The little girl ghost gets me every time. Funny, bleak, heartbreaking, heartwarming, horrific, romantic, the lot all at the same time.
