Polish Vampire in Burbank. Cheers
boondock saints, great movie, did any other on the list get a sequel?
I saw John Carter a few years ago without knowing anything about the movie or it’s bad reputation. I thought it was great. Looked it up afterwards to see if there were any sequels or anything and was shocked to learn it was a “fail”. I don’t really like Avatar or many other so-called successes. John Carter definitely deserves a hell of a lot more praise than it initially received.
+1 for John Carter!!
I liked John Carter a really bad movie was Hudson Hawk
Buckaroo Bonzai, The 5th Element, Howard the Duck, Sahara... there are tons of them.
Surprised that Howard the Duck isn't listed, and SHOCKED that Rocky Horror didn't make it either
You left out 3 of the biggest cult classics Rad, The Crow, and the biggest of all They Live.
John Carter is an absolute gem of a film. Any Edgar Rice Burroughs fan recognizes its tremendous merits, and it's a great movie standing on its own. I love it.
I saw Heavens Gate opening night and loved it. The latest directors cut really brought it together.
How could Rocky Horror Picture Show not make the list?
pass on these smelly cheese fest movies except for dune
OH MY GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD!!!!!!!!!!
John carter is a very good movie.
Boondock Saints 1 and 2 literally tie for my favourite movie. I'm so glad it gets acknowledged
Hell yeah, I love those movies.
I just saw John Carter last week after brushing it off since it was released. Boy was I wrong. I dont get why it didnt blow up.
My dad read John carter. As an adult when it was set release in theaters he took myself along with my siblings and a few friends. My dad doesn’t go to the theatre often but John Carter was one of the better movies I sat down to watch in a theatre. It just popped up on Netflix a few weeks ago. I’ve watched it four times since then. I love it!!!
Why people go off of a bunch of critics review to watch a movie to see if it's good or not. Is far beyond me
You know a movie is bad when you've never even heard of it, and there are several on this list that I completely missed out on. Show Girls is not nearly as bad as some say though. It isn't spectacular by any means, but it's a decent flick, and Elizabeth Berkley is easy on the eyes.
_This was a fucking bomb, for a few seconds this place was Armageddon! RRRRRETHERE WAS A FIREFIGHT!!!_
Funny, I was about to say that I actually did enjoy John Carter before reading the comments... Not alone in the universe after all...
Natural Born Killers is not brilliant. It is a terrible movie. The performances are bad, the directing ham-handed, and the tone loud and annoying. John Carter suffered from the syndrome some films experience where critics decide to pile negative energy on a perfectly acceptable movie for no good reason. Anyone who likes fantasy/action movies would like the movie. But it became trendy to express dislike for it.
Simply put..anything with Willem Defoe will reach cult status.
Well obviously Show Girls would do better with an audience that gets to watch it in the privacy of their own homes...
Critics are just sinical assholes
John carter failed because it was marketed wrong
John Carter was just terrible.
The Last Dragon
John Carter also had a series of books that could have added to its cult fan base. It's funny Star Wars and Avatar and all these other blockbuster movies ripped off Edgar Rice Burroughs.
Hudson Hawk. Speed Racer.
My daughter's name is Mallorie (I changed the spelling). Yes that's how much I love Natural Born Killers. Most people just say "Oh, like Family Ties". Yeah...sure. Plus my daughter thinks its cool. Not too many people are purposely named after a (fictitious) serial killer.
John Carter was maybe a few years ahead of its time. It is one of my favorite because the story was not easily followed, nor was the ending guessed by normal people. It they release a second film, I hope they use as many of the first cast as they can.
John Carter is complete trash. How it’s a cult classic I have no idea unless ppl are just hate watching it.
Boondocks saint's was my shit 🤗
People like all sorts of things that aren't good for them. One reason is because they perceive that it will get them approval from peers. They believe dumb things will give them cred. And that's powerful. Tatoos, smoking, getting drunk, getting high, make-up, high heels, perfumes and colognes, ripped clothing, pants half-way down the a ss. It also 'helps' that people, generally, just don't care. They are physical rather than spiritual. They live for their own immediate self-satisfaction and nothing more.
Disney gave up on John Carter before it ever went to theaters, they barely advertised it. What's weird is a John Carter direct to dvd film was made back in 2009 (Princess of Mars). So you'd think they'd want to not mess up.
John carter was just plain horrible it had no redeeming qualities what’s so ever but I still like Taylor Kitch.
Was hoping to see starship troopers.
Event horizon is a great movie
John carter needs a sequel!!
Let’s start a petition for John carter sequel
The "oe" in Verhoeven's name is close back rounded vowel (IPA: [u]), in case you are not familiar with that vowel and its pronounciation: it similar to the vowel in the English "foot"
I don't care what anybody thinks. John carter was good
Holy shit, I loved The Fountain! I never knew it tanked in theaters.
What about Hudson Hawk?
de laurentis made awesome looking movies - dunes aesthetic is fantastic.
I think The Big Lebowski is the ultimate example. It was a box office failure, and eventually became an official religion. You can't top that.
What about "Mission to Mars"
In a nutshell what I think makes a Cult Classic ? Something that was panned by so called Film Critics but loved by a small % of Film goers.
On this list actually only good movie on here what is John Carter. There were one or two are honorable mentions. But overall I can't see how most of these movies even attracted as many prayers as you claim they have attracted. And one of the worst on this list that I've actually seen was Natural Born Killers which in my opinion maybe one of the worst movies ever made. I see no utter genius in the making of this movie.
Boon dock saints is in the top 5 of my favorite movies of all time...🤘🎸🎼🎶🎶🎶🎶
Movies that I would like to have a part 2 are: John Carter, The Golden Compass, E.T., Logan's Run, The Fifth Element, I am number 4, Labyrinth, Edge of Tomorrow, The Last Starfighter, Alita - Battle Angel, Warcraft, Ender's Game, Eragon, I am Legend, Jumper, Real Steel, Stargate, The Rocketeer, The Hitman's Bodyguard, Maleficent, Train to Busan, Willow, etc...
I know you're doing more recent flicks, but I still think Plan 9 From Outer Space is the best worst movie ever made, and it's got a serious cult following. Just me...
How is Princess Bride not on this list?
Dune and The Room......... SUCKED. And I'm a Proud Sociopath and I didn't even like them. In fact, MOST of the movies on this list SUCKED AND STILL DO. I don't know ANYONE that likes these movies with the exception of NBK, Boondock Saints and maybe a few guys that like to wank it too often to Showgirls. However, John Carter was very entertaining but just too weird of a premise/story. Out of the ones I think are actually somewhat watchable, I would say John Carter was the best, then Boondock Saints, NBK and Showgirls. I would rather watch paint dry than to be forced to view any of the others on this list.Cult Classic? Indeed, NOT.
Interesting, I've enjoyed Dune since it was released. Had it on VHS, and still have it on DVD.
Army of Darkness
Boondock saints is a great film.
Howard The Duck
Every comment is about John Carter, but DUNE is a terrible movie TERRIBLE MOVIE
Walk Hard.How that film isn't regarded as one of the greatest comedies ever is beyond me.
A step by step guide on how to use Rotten Tomatoes's web site:Step 1: Don't
So, you included "Event Horizon", but not the actually good sci-fi horror movie John Carpenter's "the Thing"?
It only made 19 million against a 15 million budget and was absolutely hated by audiences and critics.
That’s because the thing was successful when it came out, event horizon wasn’t.
realy liked John Carter of Mars... it combines that 1930s Flash Gordon feel with amazing Optics... dont know how it Bombed, its Popcorn Cinema at its best
If only Disney didn't go with the title " John Carter." They should of stayed true..."Princess of Mars" would of done better.
#9 is widely regarded as 'the most 40K non-Warhammer 40,000 movie of all time' because of how well it can fit into the 40K lore.#2 was widely criticized for being just a series of action movie tropes, but nobody stopped to consider that John Carpenter INVENTED most of those tropes back in the 19th century.
I got a bad movie for you. Ankle Biters. Yep. Midget vampires. Outstanding premise. Couldn't watch 10 minutes of it. That bad
Another underrated films are "SOMIKING ACES" and "13". For me those are great movies.
My husband and i finally watched John Carter, loved it.
I'm in a film as my self called welcome to essex , it's a zombie film, I was wondering if you can look it up and give it a review it would be fun:) I even do a scene with Russell Brand in it proppa funny bit violent tho,
David lynch dune is a masterpiece and John Carter is very good
How in the hell did "The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai: Across the 8th Dimension" not make this list?
I think I know why the room was so bad. Because someone stole $5,995,000 from the $6,000,000 budget.
IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE should be mention as well as it tanked when it came out and now everyone considers it a xmas classic
Highlander bombed at the box office but did so well on VHS that it spawned 3 sequels and a TV show!!P.S. I loved John Carter and bought it as soon as it came out on DVD.
John carter was awesome. I would love to find out what happened after he went back to Mars
Lots of other material that Burroughs wrote - esp. Warlord Of Mars (JC becomes an international hero, among a dozen other notable things worthy of Conan) and Master Mind Of Mars (odd plot points, manipulative cult seen from backstage, scheming old villainess, etc.)
I bought all hype about Heaven Gate and took a nice girl to opening night . 20 minutes in she said that she was board and wanted to leave I talked her into ten minutes more then. We were both board. We leave. Couple weeks later there is a rereliece. I went same girl we made it to 45 minutes and leave . This time I get a refund first and only time ever at a movie theater. Months later new edit I go alone and watch for a hour or more .pretty back grounds but I have no idea who is who or anything about the plot. Years later I see it on TV and fell asleep in ten minutes. I hate that movie
I love event horizon
dune i thought it sucked when it came out and it still sucks..john carter well . wish they make a sequel
the boondock saints is a great movie. movies so bad there good shouldn't count.
What about "Plan 9 from Outer Space"? Ed Wood was the greatest at rotten movies!
I was a huge John Carter fan, Disney dropped the ball marketing this movie.
Downvoted for no list in the description.
No list of box office bombs that became cult classics is complete with The Rocky Horror Picture Show. An absolute failure until the fans of the midnight showings made it a cult classic, turning it into the longest-running theatrical release in history.
I loved Event Horizon, as a sci-fi head. And, I enjoyed Boondock Saints. Guess I'm a weirdo. Will have to check out John Carter, never seen it.
Just watched John Carter on Netflix the other night and it wasn't that bad.
John Carter is actually a pretty amazing movie.
John Carter is a disappointing adaptation
Saw Dune at the movies. They passed out earnest explanations printed on goldenrod paper that were impossible to read in premovie dimness.
I did liked jonh Carter, i thought wasn't worthy watching at the cinema so waited till I came to tv but man it was good. Maybe it needed a better leading actor to be a hit
Natural Born Killers and John Carter are great!
John Carter was just added to Netflix. I love that movie.
Awesome, I haven't seen it yet!
Another one against stupid lists like this (cuz none of these movies are good) and FOR John Carter (it was great). You can tell a generational gap by people who quote razzies and rotten tomatoes. FFS... Box Office doesn't even matter anymore - money all goes into the pot.
Dark City, They Live, Time Bandits, Night of the Comet, The 13th Floor & Logan's Run
Time Bandits especially. And don't forget Baron von Munchausen
Dark City was great.
Prayon Kreutz Dark City, yes!
