    Night of the Lepus

    Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels
    havent thought of Night of the Lepus in years......love Lock Stock and Two Smoking barrels!

    Rory Breaker: What did you shoot him with, an air rifle?
    Winston: Look, we grow weed. We're not mercenaries.
    Rory Breaker: You don't say.

    "Hatchet" Harry: You must be Eddie, J.D.'s son.
    Eddie: Yeah. You must be Harry. Sorry, didn't know your father.
    "Hatchet" Harry: Never mind son, you just might meet him if you carry on like that.

    Soap: Rory Breaker? That psychotic black dwarf with an Afro?
    Tom: That would be the same man, yes.

    Big Chris: All right, son: roll them guns up, count the money, and put your seat belt on.

    Soap: A minute ago this was the safest job in the world. Now it's turning into a bad day in Bosnia.

    Eddie: They're armed.
    Soap: What was that? Armed? What do you mean armed? Armed with what?
    Eddie: Err, bad breath, colorful language, feather duster... what do you think they're gonna be armed with? Guns, you tit!

    there are a whole lot better ones but they arent suitable for this forum

    I didn't get stimulated but he kept his promise on change, that's about all I got left!

    More!

    WOW!
    Nice list you've all got going there! I have seen half or more of them, and it is nice to see
    that others have also appreciated their unique qualities!

    It's hard to think of something not already listed.... I apologize if someone already mentioned these:
    I might add Time Bandits, Something Wicked this way Comes, and one more mainstream: American Beauty.
    For a bit more Camp/bizarre, I would add Time Bandits, Mars Attacks & Brazil.
    (Perhaps easier to follow than Naked Lunch was!...well, Brazil is a bit wacked too tho!)
    For barely stupid fun, Killer Clowns from Outerspace.

    My All-Time Favorite has to be Forbidden Planet!
    A great movie of Matrix quality, but only for its underlying phylisophical concept.
    It is a movie (unlike most) that would actually benefit by being remade!
    [As the Matrix (original movie) is based on the premise that the world around us is not simply the "concrete reality" we perceive that it is. (an idea which some philosophies and "off-mainstream religious beliefs" have followed since eons ago) ]

    Forbidden Planet isn't "great" by any means, but I like movies that are a bit "Perceptive",
    as the first Matrix and the first Star Wars movies were.
    I would have to say those types of movies are the ones I like best for more than just pure entertainment (ie: Lord of the Rings/Harry Potter/Stardust),
    which are GREAT entertainment,
    but I also love when a movie presents some philosophy that touches revealingly on life itself.

    Well, I do hope others have more input, as I am jotting down some other movies I've NOT seen before, and might just want to see!

    Nice thread! Better than I thought it would be! (I passed over looking at it for a while, for lack of time and such.)
    Take care all!

    Experience is the best teacher. At least it used to be.
    But then, common sense isn't so common anymore, is it.

    From the "So bad its brilliant" file..
    The Warriors..
    CAN...YOU...DIG...IT...

    Number 1 movie I thought I would love, but hated:
    Hitchikers Guide to the Galaxy..
    totally sucked..biggest movie disappointment of probably my entire life..

    Number 1 movie I thought I would hate, but loved.
    Tank Girl..
    I was expecting to hate the movie, because I loved Tank Girl in her original form..
    I was a huge fan, had every issue..and thought the movie would be bad..
    but it was ok..

    If you are a Tank Girl fan, you have to check out Gorillaz:
    http://www.gorillaz.com
    I like them mostly just for the Jamie Hewlett animation, but the music isnt bad either!
    the videos are very fun..

    Yes, David Cronenberg's Naked Lunch was rather unfortunately an amalgamation of most of William Burroughs' writing and didnt really follow the book Naked Lunch much at all. Most of that stuff never happened in any Burroughs book. I still like it, a lot, but maybe it should not have been given the name Naked Lunch. I wish someone would do all Burroughs' books as film verbatim. The studio who did would probably be locked down and "silenced" with flamethrowers by the religious right after the first few though...

    I thought Tank Girl would be lame too but i was surprised as well. C'mon Ice Tea as a six foot rat man? How good could that be!? lol!

    Yeah, I thought that was an awesome movie despite the fact that it lacks all the flash of most movies these days. It reminded me of the novel Sphere by Michael Crichton.

    Ah yes Brazil was great. And you remind me of 2 other great oddball movies:

    City of Lost Children
    Delicatessen

    For barely stupid fun, Killer Clowns from Outerspace.
    Barely stupid fun describes it perfectly

    Could not agree with you more, the new one totally sucked. If you can get your hands on the BBC one it is not half bad, pretty much follows the books (up to "So Long..." which had not been published when it was made so...)
