Tariq Paskel's insight:

Found his paradoy of Pulp Fiction to be pretty funny. For those whom have seen this movie you will already know what is taking place in this video. This goes to show that Cult Films are not only just a genre but they are apart of our culture. Anytime you see a reinactment of a classic film you know it has played apart of society in many ways.

Quentin Tarantino Confirms His Next Film Will Be A Western - The Hollywood News

Quentin Tarantino Confirms His Next Film Will Be A Western - The Hollywood News | cult films | Scoop.it

First, he made DJANGO UNCHAINED; then, he cited THE LONE RANGER in his top films of 2013 so far. It’s clear Quentin Tarantino loves a good Western, so it’s no surprise to hear his next project will see him return to the oft-forgotten genre.

 

The acclaimed director of such classics as PULP FICTION, RESERVOIR DOGS and INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS recently appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno to promote a graphic novel adaptation of DJANGO, where he revealed the genre of his next project – and also confirmed that it won’t be a sequel to the Jamie Foxx-starring DJANGO, released earlier this year in the UK.

 

Tarantino professed his love for the genre to Leno:

‘I love westerns so much, after I taught myself to make one, it’s like ‘Now let me make another one, now I know what I’m doing.”

This isn’t the first time Tarantino’s spoken about returning the Western genre, though it is the first time we’ve had anything concrete. Back in 2012, he told The Guardian:

‘I’d like to do a couple more, dealing with the same issue: but different story, different characters.’

Tarantino once spoke about doing a film based on John Brown, the abolitionist who tried to lead a slave revolt in 1859, so there’s a chance that the director could revisit the themes of slavery in that sense. Of course, he’s had a year to think about it, so he could have something else entirely in store for us by this point.

Time will tell, but hopefully Quentin Tarantino will have learnt plenty of lessons from DJANGO UNCHAINED, and won’t drag his next film out unnecessarily (and will keep the dodgy Australian accent to a minimum).

Tariq Paskel's insight:

Quentin Tarantino is known for have a chain of Cult Films in his time as a film maker. With his latest film Django is sure to be another one added to his list. I've it twice already and personallly I believe it fells under the genre of Cult Films.

Tariq Paskel's insight:

 In an article by the Washington Post about Ted Leonsis paying a man 100 dollars to stop singing American Pie shows that a film like that which wasn’t appreciated immediately upon its release but due to fans like the man that was singing the song have been able to be apart of our culture. When refers are being made about a film that most people haven’t seen it makes you feel special. Special in a way that says, “Hey I know something that you don’t know and when I say it I’m proud that I know it.” American Pie is by far one of the biggest cult films of the 90s. With groundbreaking moments have probably inspired a few man to sleep with an apple pie.

20 things you didn’t know about Pulp Fiction | cult films | Scoop.it
I consider myself a pretty big Pulp Fiction fan, but even I had no clue about this stuff. Ranging from behind-the-scenes facts to in-film easter eggs, these are pretty neat.

A major critical and commercial success, it revitalized the career of its leading man, John Travolta, who received an Academy Award nomination, as did costars Samuel L.

Rob Cohen to Direct Remake of Cult Classic 'Road House'
/FILM
Survey a bunch of movie fans on the most rewatchable films of the Eighties and Road House is guaranteed to come up.
Tariq Paskel's insight:

Road House is a 1989 action film directed by Rowdy Herrington and starring Patrick Swayze as a bouncer at a newly refurbished roadside bar who protects a small town in Missouri from a corrupt businessman. Sam Elliott also plays a bouncer, the mentor, friend and foil of Swayze's character. The cast also includes Kelly Lynch as Swayze's love interest, and Ben Gazzara as the main antagonist. If a remake is made original fans should have a blast watching this.

Tariq Paskel's insight:

For my scoop it report I felt that the articles I selected were relevant to this definition of cults films. In the article by John Muir’s the idea he is trying to express is not only were these films horrible but, the still have a second life due to the fact of them being so horrible. People have gained an appreciation for them now even though back in the 1970s they were seen as embarrassments. It gets thumbs up as cult films due to dedicated fans being able to help them resurface in the media.

Kylie's Top 3 Slacker Cult Movies | T.E.N. tv | cult films | Scoop.it
I've named October as the official "Cult Movie Month" for Flick Junkies and I'm starting us off with one of my favorite categories, the slacker movies! Who doesn't secretly wish they could be a lay-about, a purveyor of nothing, ...
Tariq Paskel's insight:

In the post by Kylie Henry about the top three slacker cult films is a perfect example on the true definition of cult films. He does in depth on the films: Clerks, Office Space, and The Big Lebowski. He breaks down why they deserve this title and I couldn’t agree with him more. For a film like office space I personally have found myself quoting all the characters at times and when I first saw it I thought it was dumb but, after watching it again it has become one of my all time favorite films to watch due it’s fresh way to capture the audience. The soundtrack to that film is definitely is one that will catch you by surprise but, also helped it obtain its longevity.
