Spring is in full bloom, and what better time than now to unleash some classic and cult films that you all shall enjoy.
This particular list for March left more on the cult side than on the classics side. Needless to say some are signified classics, and deserve to be watched again and again. Some simply fell off the radar and were never mentioned again.
Repo Man: Release Date: March 2nd, 1984
One of the most 80’s movies of all time Repo Man is easily forgotten on the big scale, but the cult fans still adore this movie to pieces, and as they should. It has its charm and dazzle with its weirdness all packed in there.
This is Spinal Tap: Release Date: March 2nd, 1984
The best mockumentary ever made. This is Spinal Tap is timeless and endless on satirical comedy. There is just so much to observe and laugh about in this movie I lose it everytime when they pull out stonehenge.
The Jacket: Release Date: March 4th, 2005
It’s truly a deep sensation watching this movie. There is another life with another chance and how it all is portrayed. This writing is raw and just original. Something is just so unique and pure with this film. The story takes an uncanny approach with maybe a cliche predictability, but enjoying it for what it is, it’s a can’t miss.
The Big Lebowski: Release Date: March 6th, 1998
This is a cult movie fan’s pride and joy! Along with Eraserhead this is up there for being favorites from big cult movie fans. “The Dude” is personified as someone you just want to hangout while you string a couple games of bowl and sip on white russians. You can begin to see why there is a huge sensation with this movie. You may be someone who watches this and sees no appeal to it, and can’t find any of the hype about it, if that’s the case you may now realize why it’s a cult movie in the first place. There is even a religion based on this movie, called “Dudeists”. Alrighty then.
Limitless: Release Date: March 8th, 2011
An adventure, a trivial mind game with a pill to give you all that you want and more. I am a huge fan of this movie and I think the whole plot carried itself well. The concept is just sensational, it builds itself strongly. Thrilling and leaves you wanting more. Limitless has now became a TV show, and there is even a drug on the market currently called brain peak that calls itself just like the pill from limitless. Interesting..
Memento: Release Date: March 16th, 2000
This movie I feel has gone unnoticed entirely since its 2000 release, and I can’t understand why. Christopher Nolan’s second film and it is spell binding and revolutionary with the style it is presented. Lenny the main character can only remember up to five minutes and his term memory refreshes to the same place it started. If you haven’t seen this it is a must add, as the entire movie goes from end to the beginning in the opposite order. One of my all time favorites.
V For Vendetta: Release Date: March 17th, 2005
Within the ten years of this movie being made I’d say it is well on its way to becoming a classic. There’s just something epic and mysteriously telling about this movie that you could watch over and over.
Honorable mentions, Grand Budapest Hotel, White Men Can’t Jump, Zodiac and Above The Rim.
