Cult Movies you hate

Unread postby BernieBrown » Wed Jan 02, 2008 1:51 pm

Most Cult movies are hit or miss on most people hence the name cult move. Anyway what are some cult movies that you absolutely can't stand?

Napoleon Dynamite : I saw this movie a little later than most folks, so by the time I saw it it had been hyped to the moon. I went in expecting two hours of belly laughs instead all I got was a chuckle here and there. Don't really hate it but its highly overrated.

Donnie Darko: The movie is just OK but the fan base annoying as hell. And if you say the movie was anything less than life changing the die hard fan boys will tell you that you missed the point and try to explain it to you. Its so deep you just dont understand it all. I have never met a person more condo sending than a fan of that movie.

Rocky Horror Picture Show is a terrible, terrible movie. And although I understand that's not the point, no one should watch it expecting to be entertained by the movie.

Oh, I absolutely loved this movie!

Steve, did you see it in the theatre at the mid-night show? or rent the DVD?

But, I also saw it for the first time a long time ago (1979) when I was young and hip.

OK I kid but really you are the first person I've met who did not like it.

I know man, and the crazy thing is that I really enjoyed Holy Grail and Life of Brian. But for some reason I just really didn't find Meaning of Life to be overly funny.

And I also have yet to meet someone who agrees with me either, so you are in the overwhelming majority.

"Being John Malkovich" sucked big time.

"Starship Troopers" might be one of the worst movies ever put to film.

"Mars Attacks!" See...just because I give Burton a "Bernie Kosar" for Sweeney doesn't mean I like everything he does.

"Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory" I actually liked the Depp/Burton version as I positively hated Gene Wilder and the original piece of trash, and I thought Depp-Burton did a lot of their stuff as a poke in the eye to the first one.

Oh, also, "Eraserhead" is unwatchable. The "Metal Machine Music" of films: people will tell you how it's High Art, but really, it's not.

I saw this in the mid-eighties in Coventry, and I have to say, in my life I've probably had about the average American share of bad nights.

This ranks right up there with the worst of them.

Agree on Starship Troopers. reminded me of Beverly Hills 90210 in space.

Rocky Horror Picture Show has my vote though and yes I saw it back when it first came out at the Colony theater in Coventry. I guess I just don't get it and never will.

I think every flick that has already been mentioned has sucked...

My pick is for "Texas Chainsaw Massacre"...one of the most overrated pieces of trash ever filmed...

One of my favesthough is "Heathers"...

I have to disagree here. I thought it really showed Jim Carrey's versatility and Kate Winslet was outstanding. I'm a big fan of that movie and love the twists and turns of the storyline.

I'm gonna hafta side with Joensy on this one: maybe it's because I expect more from Mel Brooks, but the movie is VERY inconsistent and has too many "dead spaces" to be considered with Saddles or Frank.

I guess I don't HATE it ... but 't'ain't good.

(Caveat: my sons like it, so I'll watch it with 'em. We own it ... but we own Disney Princesses, too (for the five-year-old daughter), and I ain't claimin' any attachment to those, either.)

I'll agree that it is no where near the level of Blazin Saddles. That is an all-time great.

Agree with Spaceballs being a disappointment. Especially after Blazzing Saddles and Young Frankenstein.

Finally got around with Netflix into watching "The Warriors" for the first time.

Yawn.

Warriors was definitely a time piece, I remember it at Loew's East...cement head wannabees would come in there to get all the fight choreography down. Definitely stupid.

This is crazy talk. Starship Troopers is "B" movie at its finest, an absolute classic cult film. Gene Wilder is much better as Wonka than Depp. Perhaps a personal boner for Burton has clouded your opinion, and Spaceballs, it's the exact same as any other Brooks film. I think it belongs right beside Frank and Saddles.

I guess the definition of a cult film is a "love it or hate it" thing, so everyone's reponse sort of cements said movies as cult classics.

Burton has made plenty of movies that suck.

Batman Returns
Mars Attacks!
and ESPECIALLY Planet of the Apes. So your obsession with my boner is misplaced, but has been noted as creepy. :evil:

I never saw Willie Wonka until I was an adult, so it just seems to me like a cut-rate , 70s attempt to be the Wizard of Oz, so I was entertained to see Depp send up the character by playing him as Michael Jackson.

Starship Troopers still goes down as the worst script, worst diretion, and worst examples of acting ever seen. Dina Meyer's boob shots were the only worthwhile thing in the entire movie, although Doogie Howser in an SS trench coat was mildly amusing.
