http://www.avclub.com/features/the-new-cult-canon/

So yeah, I haven't been to the IGN Movies Lobby for awhile and I don't really browse cinema forums, so I don't know if this thing is well-known around these parts, or was/is in vogue with the hipsters or anything like that, but I figure it may be new to at least one person. Mixture of well-known and more obscure stuff from the last 20 years or so. I've been trying to get through it for the last year and most of the stuff on there I hadn't seen has usually been pretty good or even great. They also add new entries every other Thursday.

REQUIRES TOO MUCH READING

But I enjoyed some of the video reviews I'd seen.

I've now seen 124 of the 147 movies so far included

I'd say all but maybe a handful of those I've enjoyed

I didn't read your post and just assumed it would be unknown movies. But I was like 'Wait... I've seen a lot of this stuff.' Tongue But yeah, I'd never heard of it.

Boondock Saints is good though and Pi blows dick.

Also, you better not be a gigantic faggot and skip over Millennium Actress 'cos it's anime, 'cos that movie is really good. I think you'd really like the director's first movie, Perfect Blue. It's basically a giallo in cartoon form.

I Heart Huckabees also sucks a fantastic amount of dick. There's probably a lot of movies you've seen there that should be thrown in the "downright terrible" pile.

Perfect Blue is fucking awesome, but I haven't seen Millennium Actress. Also, both Boondock Saints and Pi are great.

Pretty good list, but I haven't seen any of the ones you haven't seen and quite a lot that you have.

It's been in the saved section of my queue for years (along with Exotica, Bitter Moon, and Beau Travail, which looks to be right up your alley)

I don't like Pi, but I wouldn't call it terrible

Boondock Saints is a gigantic steaming pile. The only good part is when they shoot the cat.

Sign up for a month to get Netflix DVDs, I'm sure they've got that shizz. Pretty sure that's how I saw Millennium Actress.

Weird. Maybe I got it through Blockbuster then. They've got a loooot of anime and cult DVDs that Netflix doesn't. Or so was the case last I subscribed.
