  1. 2. TALL GUY, WEIRD CLOTHES
    Big Trouble in Little China (1986) – One of those rare movies that wanted to be cult and achieved it.

    3. SAVING THE HUMAN RACE
    Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure (1989) – Wins because it has the best (and most sophisticated) time travel humor that I know of.

    5. SECOND FIFTH ELEMENT
    The Blues Brothers (1980) – Not only a better movie but it has both types of music – Country and Western.

  11. We’ll see if I can vote in more matchups this time…

    2. TALL GUY, WEIRD CLOTHES
    Young Frankenstein (1974)
    Big Trouble in Little China (1986)

    Damn it. Little China is more “culty” but I love Young Frahnkensteen. The hell with it. I’m voting for the movie I want to rewatch. (Put. The candle. Back.)

    3. SAVING THE HUMAN RACE
    Escape from New York
    Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure (1989)

    I never really got the love for Bill & Ted.

    5. MODEST DESIGN

    The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975)

    Great Scott!

    5. SECOND FIFTH ELEMENT
    The Blues Brothers (1980)
    The Fifth Element (1997)

    Damn it damn it damn it. Forehead clothes….
    The Fifth Element is more cult-movie-ish. Blues Brothers has an amazing soundtrack. And they’re BOTH on a Mission from God.

    Moolti-paahhssss….

    6. DRIVING FAST IN A 20 MPH ZONE
    Repo Man (1984)
    Shaun of the Dead (2004)

    Fighting Zombies with cricket bats. What’s not to love?

    Aubrie Two, I love you….

    8. GOBLIN KING VS GOBLIN ARMY
    Labyrinth (1986)
    Wizards (1977)

    Wizards is full of quirkiness. Labyrinth has Bowie in tight, tight pants….

    The Goblin King killed Fritz.

    10. WHAT IS INSIDE CARES FOR YOU
    Being John Malkovich (1999)
    Mystery Men (1999)

    The acting is better in Malkovich. The plot is quirkier, too. But I shovel. I shovel very well.

    12. MEDIEVAL DEAD
    Army of Darkness (1992)
    Conan the Barbarian (1982)

    This is my boom-stick…

    13. DON’T YOU OPPRESS THEM

    Always look on the bright side of life….

    15. BROOM STICK VS ROCKET SHIPS

    2. TALL GUY, WEIRD CLOTHES
    Young Frankenstein (1974)
    Easy again! Young Frankenstein is one of my favorites and Big Trouble in Little China kinda bores me!

    3. SAVING THE HUMAN RACE
    Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure
    Wow, are these all going to be so easy? A movie I really like paired with a movie I don’t care about?

    4. MIDGET KING VS NOME KING
    Return to Oz (1985)
    Yup, easy.

    5. MODEST DESIGN
    The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975)

    5. SECOND FIFTH ELEMENT
    The Blues Brothers (1980)
    Still easy! Yeah, I don’t really like The Fifth Element, so sue me. I’m sure the next one is going to be just as easy as they all…

    6. DRIVING FAST IN A 20 MPH ZONE
    Repo Man (1984)
    Shaun of the Dead (2004)
    NOOOOOO curse you Hampus Eckerman you’re as evil as Kyra! I… I… Shaun of the Dead — No, Repo Man — no, Shaun — No — No —

    14. WE GOTTA KILL IT!
    Tremors (1990)
    Adventures in Babysitting (1987)

    This is another rough one. I like both movies for very different reasons.

    15. BROOM STICK VS ROCKET SHIPS
    Forbidden Planet (1956)
    Kiki’s Delivery Service (1989)

    I am not sure that any Miyazaki film fits my definition of “cult.” Not even

    16. BOMBS, NINE O’CLOCK, DAY TWO!
    Time Bandits (1981)
    Dark Star (1974)

    Ooooh. I had a book adaptation of Time Bandits, I think. My memory of this is entirely fuzzy. I did not have a promotional beach ball from Dark Star, but I want one now.

  18. 1. The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert (1994)
    2. Big Trouble in Little China (1986)
    Very tough call. Love ’em both, but I think Big Trouble is a little more cultish.

    3. Escape from New York
    A little more cultish *and* I think I like it a little more.

    4. Abstain. Only seen one.
    5. The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975)
    Ouch, very difficult choice!

    5. Abstain on the grounds that I really can’t decide, and will be happy with either.
    6. Repo Man (1984)
    HULK WANT SMASH DICE! So mad right now!

    7. Silent Running (1972)
    Still pretty mad at the dice.

    8. Labyrinth (1986)
    This was a bit easier.

    9. The President’s Analyst (1967)
    A good cult movie vs. a *great* cult movie. Sorry, merely-good movie.

    10. Being John Malkovich (1999)
    11. Bubba Ho-Tep (2002)
    12. Army of Darkness (1992)
    Why yes, I am a Bruce Campbell fan. Why do you ask? 🙂

    13. Monty Python’s Life of Brian (1979)
    Another pretty painful choice!

    14. Adventures in Babysitting (1987)
    15. Kiki’s Delivery Service (1989)
    Extremely painful choice!

    14. Tremors
    15. Forbidden Planet
    16. Dark Star

    Actually not as bad as I feared. Future rounds will become painful, though, when all the ones I love go against each other.

  30. 1. WE’VE ALL BEEN USED! AND ABUSED! AND AMUSED!
    The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert (1994)
    Zardoz (1974)

    Very well done, beautiful and humanistic film, vs the epitome of 1970s SF nihilism. I’ll take the former, please.

    2. TALL GUY, WEIRD CLOTHES
    Young Frankenstein (1974)
    Big Trouble in Little China (1986)

    Much as I love BTILC, Young Frankenstein is Mel Brooks at his most brilliant. Also, in retrospect, Big Trouble has some major “-ism” problems.

    3. SAVING THE HUMAN RACE
    Escape from New York
    Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure (1989)

    Bill and Ted’s is a masterpiece of 80s comedy.

    4. MIDGET KING VS NOME KING
    Forbidden Zone (1980)
    Return to Oz (1985)

    I consider Return to Oz a vastly underrated film.

    5. MODEST DESIGN
    Flash Gordon (1980)
    The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975)

    I heard the awesome soundtrack to Rocky Horror well before the film, and I have way too many happy memories of midnight showings.

    5. SECOND FIFTH ELEMENT
    The Blues Brothers (1980)
    The Fifth Element (1997)

    The Blues Brothers was seriously one of the best musicals ever made, and had an array of stars. Fifth Element had that reallyreallyreallyreallyREALLY annoying guy.

    Also, in discussions of Mage the Ascension, I use Jake and Elliot as examples of Celestial Choristers. And use the movie as an example of coincidental magic.

    6. DRIVING FAST IN A 20 MPH ZONE
    Repo Man (1984)
    Shaun of the Dead (2004)

    One of the best punk films ever. Also, another film I used as an example in a Mage the Ascension game, this time of Awakening.

    7. TREATMENT OF PLANTS
    The Little Shop of Horrors (1960)
    Silent Running (1972)

    Fun doo-wop SF musical, vs. folk music that made me want to go psychopathic.

    8. GOBLIN KING VS GOBLIN ARMY
    Labyrinth (1986)
    Wizards (1977)

    David Bowie, vs yet another example of why the 1970s should be forgotten.

    9. MEETING THE PRESIDENT
    Death Race 2000 (1975)
    The President’s Analyst (1967)

    Death Race has that sly, black humor going for it.

    10. WHAT IS INSIDE CARES FOR YOU
    Being John Malkovich (1999)
    Mystery Men (1999)

    Mystery Men really does perfectly hit the paces of a superteam that comes together, immediately self-sabotages itself via personal conflict, and then somehow comes together in the end. You know, like Avengers did a couple decades later. But MM has that wonderful parody of 90s loner heroes. And Shoveler doing a perfect Captain America. And the quotes. all the quotes…

    11. GENTLEMEN, PLEASE REST YOUR SPHINCTERS
    Blazing Saddles (1974)
    Bubba Ho-Tep (2002)

    I liked Bubba Ho-Tep, but seriously, putting it up against the OTHER Mel Brooks masterpiece is not fair.

    12. MEDIEVAL DEAD
    Army of Darkness (1992)
    Conan the Barbarian (1982)

    Never could get into the Conan thing.

    13. DON’T YOU OPPRESS THEM
    Metropolis (1927)
    Monty Python’s Life of Brian (1979)

    Ooooh, close. But I gotta go for the one that helped define an SF subgenre.

    14. WE GOTTA KILL IT!
    Tremors (1990)

    15. BROOM STICK VS ROCKET SHIPS
    Forbidden Planet (1956)
    Kiki’s Delivery Service (1989)

    Really tough one. But Kiki’s is just so visually beautiful, and it has a message of hope in the face of an era passing. Which, if you think about it, is the opposite message to Forbidden Planet.

    16. BOMBS, NINE O’CLOCK, DAY TWO!
    Time Bandits (1981)
    Dark Star (1974)

    I love the bleak humor of Dark Star, but Time Bandits is the one I’m willing to watch again and again.
