:haha: That movie is great!

Of course, I love almost all of John Carpenter's flicks.

Hi Bacon.
The smoke wafted gently in the breeze across the poop deck and all seemed right in the world.

Lol, For some reason I did not remember this thread from before it's recent resurrection. I was going to scroll through to see if my favorites had been mentioned. I discovered they had... by me. I do see one glaring omission:

The Evil Dead series.

Definitely no for 3 of them. Those are mainstream classics. I've never heard of Green Mansions.

Green Mansions and The Wizard Of Oz could be considered cult films since both were critically panned and failed to realize a profit for some time after their release .

Green Mansions featured Antony Perkins and a very young Audrey Hepburn as Rima , the jungle girl .

Oh ... while I'm here , " A Boy And His Dog " , starring a young Don Johnson , based on Harlan Ellison's novellas .

The novella was better. I heard a rumor they were going to redo that.

So many great cult classics! You people are definitely hip, way more than I am supposed to be.

I can still do the shout-backs to the first act of Rocky Horror up to The Lab, if I get a couple goes to practice (Life?! Itself?!). Product of temporary accidental fashionability on my part. It wore off. I got to practice some arts that I didn't think I would ever practice again at the time. It took me from ultimate sadness to a place where I could see a future.

I think The Princess Bride said everything that needs to be said about heroes and villains and love. 'Nuff said. The Man in Black represents all dark heroes quite effectively.

I'm going to re-mention "Dune" and "The Children of Dune" miniseries, both excellent and available on DVD, even if you didn't read the books. If you can't understand these videos, you aren't really a sentient being. Period. It IS the litmus test for sentience, ok? They are just enough easier than the books to draw the line there. Do you understand the nature of time?

Firefly was easily the most influential sci-fi, maybe the most influential video work of any kind of the last 10 years or more. Everyone wishes they had done it. It's as cult-classic as it gets: a network-sabotaged and cancelled show that has entered the popular meme as the true future of humanity. The "Objects in Space" episode was the best existential literature ever put on a TV series. It's the "Dark Side of the Moon" of TV box sets. I saw it at Walmart last month, ffs.

Both Dune and Firefly appear in my signature quotes. They are that important.
In case you didn't realize it, I DO have a sense of humor. How about you?

Hey, what about "Strange Brew" ya hosers, eh?

"Caddyshack?" with the immortal "Be the ball, Billy!" I know it was a hit at the time, but it has endured beyond its scope. Your call.

"The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the Eighth Dimension" ? Just having Peter Weller, Jeff Goldbloom, Christopher Lloyd, Ellen Barkin, and John Lithgow in the same movie almost has to qualify it right off. "Laugh all you want, monkey boy! I'm going home with my overthruster!"; "Oh, no, don't tug on that. You don't know what it might be attached to..."; "'Cause, remember: No matter where you go, there you are."
