LOVE LOVE LOVE Beetlejuice!

Empire - my favorite scifi movie.

Bill & Ted - always puts a smile on my face when I see their names or a Circle K store.

Vacation - the best National Lampoon movie ever.

Wrath of Khan - greatest Trek movie, but I still don't need to see it again, twice was enough. I really loved the 2010 Trek movie, and the most recent Trek tv series, Enterprise. Big fan of Next Gen, somewhat of Voyager (after 7 of 9 joined). Never really liked the original tv series, though I always loved Spock. Didn't like Deep Space Nine. Love any Trek movie with Data in it.

Nice list, Lucy. I still desire to own a time-travelling DeLorean fully equipped with a functional Flux Capacitor and a Mr. Fusion energy reactor that I can use to get myself OUTATIME when I want to.

Hi Carma,

I am currently revisiting Star Trek: the Next Generation and am on season 2 so far. It is a most-excellent TV series, as Bill and Ted would say. I love Star Trek Voyager as well. The new Star Trek movie was great fun also and I look forward to seeing the latest installment.

Great list, Lucy!!

Batman 1989 for sure - that Batmobile is the reason I went to see the movie! The trailer started with it and I went WHOA - what's that? I wasn't even a Batman fan. I watched the tv series sometimes as a kid, only because I had to share the tv with brothers and we only had 3 channels. I became a Batman fan after that movie, and a Michael Keaton fan.

My favorite Star Wars vehicle... the pod racers!

Nothing else really comes to mind. I love the old cars - 40s, 50s - those big rounded kind with huge back seats.

Rock, me too - looking forward to the next Trek movie. Really like the casting for young Spock, and really, all of the young cast is great!

Picard is, I think, one of the sexiest men ever on tv. There are so many things I love about that captain. For one, I love that he is mature, that he isn't a womanizer, that he's awkward around children, that he appreciates the womens' perspectives (especially love the Whoopi Goldberg character!) He isn't too emotional, like Kirk was, and he isn't totally stoic. And I especially loved the greatest villain of all scifi, in my opinion - The Borg - and Picard's interactions with them.

Out of all of the Starfleet Captains that I would like to emulate the most in characteristics in real life, Captain Picard would definitely be at the top of my list. He has very admirable qualities.

Good list, Alice, but no Malcolm McDowell? I've told people before. I would listen to him read the ingredients off a shampoo bottle :D

Rock - My favorite starfleet captain is Kirk. Because I am a simple girl with simple tastes.

My personal top ten favorite Cult Classics

The Rocky Horror Picture Show (This goes without saying, really.)
Faster Pussycat, Kill Kill
Plan 9 from Outer Space
Barbarella
Rock n Roll High School
Attack of the Killer Tomatoes
This is Spinal Tap
Forbidden Zone
The Big Lebowski
The Stupids

(Admittedly the cult status of some of these is debatable. That debate belongs elsewhere.)

Katie: Not Joyce; simply not a favorite. I am a great enthusiast for Lewis's work, both his apologetics and his scholarly work--the fiction perhaps not so much. I'm quite familiar with the works of that group (including the rarely mentioned but excellent Charles Williams), and I may say that they represent the tolerant spirit of the Anglican church very well--which is my own tradition as well. Meeting with them would scarcely be cathartic, but certainly engaging.

And you err greatly in assuming that I am a misogynist. Not even a broad-spectrum misanthropist. I simply have no patience for sentimentality, lack of logic, and the assumption that either sex is inherently superior in any way to the other.

Carma: Sense and Sensibility is no melodrama--nor, for that matter, is Little Women. And which version?

I wouldn't call Sense and Sensibility my favorite Austen adaptation (that honor is equally shared between the Olivier Pride and Prejudice and the Patrow Emma, to which I return frequently with renewed delight) but it's quite a good film.

One of my favorite dinner party topics is the question--can you take Warhol seriously as an artist? Always an interesting conversation. (For the record, my answer is yet--I take him very seriously indeed.) One can scarcely call his films fun (I exclude the commercial ones, like the Dracula and Frankenstein), but I don't think you can be literate about film without coming to terms with them. I'm quite glad I sat through The Chelsea Girls.

SL: Good cult list. If I were making it, I would delete Forbidden Zone (saw it recently, and it's just plain nasty) and This Is Spinal Tap (hasn't worn well with me) and replace them with Valley of the Dolls and Carnival of Souls. There must be an Ed Wood on any top cult list--I think that I would chose Glen or Glenda. Matter of taste. And I am always delighted to see someone else who likes Faster, Pussycat, Kill! Kill!--as John Waters says, the greatest film ever made, better even than Citizen Kane.

And Pink Flamingos also is an indispensable cult film.

I saw Pink Flamingos and it was a little too weird even for me.

I haven't seen Valley of the Dolls (just read the book) or Carnival of Souls. I'll add them to the ever lengthening list of things I should check out.

SL: Valley of the Dolls is the Citizen Kane of trash. It must be seen. I treasure the day I was introduced to it. The two-disc DVD is full of wonderful extras.
