Cult Films: The Good, The Bad And The Not-So-Ugly


 
Art and Culture,Entertainment,Humor
When you sit back and judge any one of a number of cult films, you’re doing so with a certain amount of preconceived notions. For many of these films, they’ve gone through decades of ridicule and scrutiny, with most opinions falling in two camps — genius & ahead of its time or pure garbage. With that kind of baggage, it’s a little tough to be able to make your own opinion when you finally take the plunge & watch.

Here are a select cult films that have actually moved in and out of favor among their cult following over the years. Nonetheless, each certainly has its place:

The Good: Clerks — It’s hard to imagine two store clerks talking about life, relationships, and movies would be so interesting, but this gem from the early 90s mirrored its generation in more ways than one. The pop-culture references, the cadence in their conversations, it all seemed to foretell what movies and TV shows of the decade would be like, for good or bad. Like many cult movies, Clerks was a sign of its time, but a viewing nearly twenty-five years later still feels fresh.

The Bad: Monty Python and the Holy Grail — The collective gasp of the internet is already being heard. This is not a good movie. It has some funny moments, but overall, this is one of the weaker offerings by this British comedy troupe. Unfortunately, we’ve been beat over the head with misquoted lines, bad English accents, and forcibly shoehorned references to this movie for over forty years, and it’s time for it to stop. Even with such a negative review, there will certainly be somebody out there saying, “Just a flesh wound.” Ugh.

The Ugly: The Room — Yeah, this category strays from the “not-so-ugly” label alluded to in the title, but truth be told, this movie is just bad. Aside from the mystery and confusion as to how, and why, the movie actually got a green light to be made, so much has been made to showcase the slow burn of genius that this movie has from start to finish. Stop. Just stop. It’s a bad movie that takes itself seriously, and those that have bought in are trying to get others to do so as well. No.

It’s important to remember that the reasons cult films are labeled as such is because the name itself is relative & requires no commitment. In other words, it can often just be laziness on the part of the viewer to call a movie a future cult classic because they just don’t get it. That said, even if you’re not a movie buff who has seen everything, you know when something isn’t very good. In the end, it’s really a matter of beauty being in the eye of the beholder, but don’t be afraid to hit the stop button when you’ve had enough.
