  15. Entertainment Weekly’s Top 50 Cult Movies's icon

    Entertainment Weekly’s Top 50 Cult Movies

    Favs/dislikes: 30:0. Published in 2003, Entertainment Weekly Magazine described their Top 50 Cult Movies thusly: "most died at the box office, some of them horribly. Mangled and despised, they were re-animated on video. And now they compose our cultural Esperanto, a subliminal vocabulary of vaguely subversive images, ideas, and phrases that we continue to obsess over and dissect at parties, around water coolers, in bars, over the blaring banalities of the mainstream media din. They are Cult Movies...So if you take your dead evil and your buckaroos banzai-ed, pour yourself a tall glass of Kool-Aid and peruse this list…" Note: Reader response to the original list was so great, that EW subsequently annexed their list with 11 “readers’ choice” picks. Why 11? Well, it's one longer, isn't it …?
  16. EXCEPTIONALLY STRANGE HORROR CULT CLASSICS by Zachar_Laskewicz on IMDB's icon

    EXCEPTIONALLY STRANGE HORROR CULT CLASSICS by Zachar_Laskewicz on IMDB

    Favs/dislikes: 5:0. A simplistic definition of the horror genre assumes that it has to contain monsters and to follow a strict set of genre rules. I believe, however, that horror has the potential to work on a number of different levels, both metaphorical, existential and purely visceral. By its very nature it creates possibilities for expression of pretty complex questions about the nature of existence; more importantly it allows questioning film-makers to completely shatter any pre-existing ideas about what can be defined as normal. Here it is used to explore and criticise society in ways no other genre can, primarily because it is much maligned and misunderstood; film-makers have the freedom to create metaphysical spaces that would be otherwise impossible. In this list I'm interested in looking at those aspects of particular films which make them stand out from the others, which make fans of those of us who are attuned to what horror sometimes tries to communicate (and alienates as many). Horror is also an ambiguous zone of possibility that allows experimentation with forms of representation not allowable in anything outside the avant-garde. These days it's hard to find a horror film that really touches you deeply in the nightmarish kind of way true horror really should. The more recent Hollywood spectacles may look good but lack true depth, often providing a humanistic outlook frosted with a prudishly moral acceptance of empty concepts. In short, I rarely see anthing that more than skirts the edges of true horror. Sometimes you have to look really hard, both into the past and to films that aren't produced by the formulaic cemetery for cinema which calls itself an industry. The idea is to include some of them here. I'm going to try to suggest in short some of the reasons why I've added them to the list (with as few spoilers as possible); the ultimate plan is to include at my website more detailed analyses and descriptions which you can find here: http://www.nachtschimmen.eu/places/projects/ESHCC. My other lists contains films that follow the rules set by Hollywood and are not necessarily awful, but should in any case be avoided by anyone who expects something cogent from the genre. Any suggestions for this or my other list are welcome; I'd love to be made aware of more truly weird and exceptional horror films that may be worthy of this list. I'd also like to thank Frank Edelamn who is the sole creator of his astoudingly complete exploration of low-budget, exploitation and anti-Hollywood cinematic offerings in his extensive website, both well written and well-researched. He calls it, aptly, 'Critical Condition' and can be found at the following URL: http://www.critcononline.com. His site and advice helped me add many of the titles to this list.

  19. Funky Bollywood: The Wild World of 1970s Indian Action Cinema's icon

    Funky Bollywood: The Wild World of 1970s Indian Action Cinema

    Favs/dislikes: 4:0. "Despite the often stereotypical notions of Bollywood, it’s not all weddings, wet saris and running around trees. In the 1970s, Indian cinema gave birth to a new breed of action movie, one that combined its own exuberant traditions with foreign influences like the gritty urban crime thrillers of the New Hollywood, Hong Kong martial arts cinema, and Italian exploitation fare. This was the domain of hard fighting he-men stars like Amitabh Bachchan, Dharmendra and Feroz Khan and badass, whip-wielding heroines played by the likes of the gorgeous Zeenat Aman, Hema Malini, and Rekha. Let world cult cinema fanatic Todd Stadtman be your guide through this world of karate killers, femme fatales, space age lairs, bombshells and booby traps with Funky Bollywood, a book with an attitude as freewheeling and feisty as its subject matter, bursting with colour and imagination on every vibrant page."

  22. Jean Serroy's Les 1000 Films Culte de l'Histoire du Cinema's icon

    Jean Serroy's Les 1000 Films Culte de l'Histoire du Cinema

    Favs/dislikes: 3:0. University professor emeritus and film critic, Jean Serroy takes the reader through the history of cinema which, in 120 years of existence, has never stopped reinventing itself, going from silent to talkies in the early 1930s, from black and white to color, from small format square screens to the spectacular dimensions of ever larger screens, from film and cellulose nitrate to 4D. This book thus proposes to return to the 1,000 cult films that have marked our era and which, each, have punctuated the life of generations of yesterday and today. Hundreds of films from all genres and all countries are presented, decade by decade, according to a selection based on objective data such as the annual admissions rankings, in France and abroad, the major festivals such as Cannes and Venice but also on major celebrations such as the Oscars and the Césars or even on the notoriety consecrated by critics. So many criteria that have allowed cinema to establish itself as a new, unique and irreplaceable art.
