Cult Movies I Missed Out On

L.M. Magalas

Canadian-born L.M. Magalas has a universal love of movies that started when her grandfather had her watch The Searchers at the age of thirteen. Since then she's made a habit of watching any movie that is not nailed down, although she tends to avoid gory horror movies whenever possible. She is also an animated movie fan and loves anything by Hayao Miyazaki. She finds it difficult to find anyone willing to play Scene It with her. She's also a writer and yearly NaNoWriMo participant. Her favourite movie is the original Twelve Angry Men.

  1. I can totally relate to this. Sometimes I’m on the bandwagon, sometimes I miss it completely. Although out of the four, the only one I haven’t seen is Evil Dead and probably for the same reason you’re not really looking forward to watching it.

    I can understand why you wouldn’t want to watch “A Clockwork Orange,” it is pretty depressing.

    I saw The Big Lebowski I think maybe a year after it came out, but I all I remember about it is that I didn’t get it. Haha! To this day I keep telling myself that I need to rematch it because I honestly don’t remember anything from it and it’s very possible that I might love it today.

    As for Fight Club, it’s the only one out of the four that I would encourage you to watch. It’s such an amazing movie, I’ve seen it more than once and even when you know the outcome, it’s still amazing every single time. And it’s definitely not a movie about underground fighting, that’s just parts of the movie, but there is a lot more than that. I think you might actually be surprised if you end up watching it because it’ll be really different from what you imagine. If you ever end up watching it let me know what you think 🙂

      Well in that case, I will definitely watch it. I don’t know how, but somebody spoiled the ending for me, so I know the big secret. That’s not the big pull for the movie, is it? I’ll probably watch it anyway though. I’d like to see how they get there. 🙂

      • Even if you know the reveal it’s still great. I’ve watched it more than once and I love it every time.
        And no, the reveal is not the big pull for the movie, it’s a twist but not the reason why people love it so much. If you do watch it let me know how you liked it 🙂
