  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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."
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. I saw it as a kid and then saw it not long ago on TCM. I didn't know that Ernest Borgnine played the viking king and I remember him jumping into the pit of dogs. I had forgotton about the brother against brother conflict too. I thought it was a pretty good movie.
  8. Vanishing Point would make a good cult movie for the following reasons. Drugs, a fast car, rebellion against establishment, nudity of a character that later in her career became a costume designer, and a suprise ending. Also a interesting cast of various characters along the way.
  9. I taped this movie and was watching in and the fear of all who tape movies happened. I ran out of tape so I don't know how it ended. Don't anyone tell, I'll see it again sometime. The point is that this is a really good movie with the classic irony twist. I was watching this guy in the desert and thinking how Bear Grylls or Les Stroud would make. The story is good and the action is subtle but still holds up.
