    Your Favorite Cult Movies

    I have not seen it since it was in the theaters but the story and the humor stuck with me. I still remember Dr Proctor having to do surgery on some guy but he wanted a smoke so bad. Then of course the ending. We could just hope that someone in programing sees this thread and checks it out.

    Your Favorite Cult Movies

    Here is a movie that could be a Cult Classic if it would get released on DVD. I am not sure how many remember Cold Turkey from 1971 but it was a very good comedy. Some big names in it and its a movie by Mel Brooks so you know what to expect.

    Runaway Trian

    It is not that I have a thing for trains but they do seem to make great themes for movies. John Voight and Eric Roberts played escaped cons going through Canada I believe on a train that is out of control. Just watching it could give a guy frostbite. I have not seen it for a while and wondered if anyone out there has.

    25 Creepiest Lines in Cinema

    I think I would avoid anyone who says "I'm your number one fan." They just might bring some Misery to you life.

    25 Creepiest Lines in Cinema

    It is not a creepy line and it is not even in a horror movie but Richard Widmark giggling in his character Tommy Uddo in Kiss of Death is very creepy.

    what is everyone's favorite war film and why?

    I have several but a top ten favorite of mine is Stalag 17. Great writing and story. The closing is for me one of the best parts. After Seften escapes they are wondering why him and Animal says "Maybe he just wanted to steal our wirecutters."

    War films of a different sort.

    I never heard of Red Zone Cuba so I guess that says alot in itself. I agree with the others through. I thought about Torn Curtin being cold war but it is not really a favorite of mine. Maybe Seven Days in May though.

    "Captain Newman, M.D." (1963)

    I had forgotten about Capt Newman M.D. and what a very good movie it is. I started watching it one day when it was being shown and got completely engrossed in the film. What great characters in a story about another side of the war. Good choice.

    Vanishing Point

    It seems as though they could look at the message board and see what people are saying and show some movies what we are talking about. It would be interesting to sit in on the planning meetings. I realize we see things from the viewers point of view but it gets rediculous to see some movies come around every two or three months and others shown only on very rare occasions.

    Sahara is a great war movie

    I agree. The first time I saw it I felt like I could taste the sand. The casting was excellent with each character having a unique part of the story. Check out The Train if you want another one that is a great story with an amazing train wreck scene. Message was edited by: Skeedaddy

    Vanishing Point

    I think that you will like if you are familiar with early 70's music and culture. It is a movie that does not get played when it should. We see so many repeats of great movies and others keep getting overlooked. Every couple of months we will see DOA (which is a good one) or North by Northwest and still not see some of the cult movies that are just fun to watch.

    War films of a different sort.

    These are cold war films that I liked because of the intrigue and insidious actions of cold war thinking. The Manchurian Candidate (the original) 7 Days in May Fail Safe Dr Stranglove (not intriguing but insightful to cold war thinking) Message was edited by: Skeedaddy

    Why Do You Like Film Noir?

    I like the darkness and cynicism of the characters. Most seem to believe that they have nothing to lose or that they have seen it all before so what the heck. It seems that maybe they can catch a break but if not ok. There is always one character that is so stunningly amoral it makes all the rest interesting as well.

    10/02/08 - TCM Evening of Noir

    Three Dark Streets and The Naked City are two very good movies. Experiment in Terror takes though. I saw it as a kid and it still creeps me out. This movie holds up very well. Message was edited by: Skeedaddy
