Of course I know the original Wicker Man is a better film than the dire remake. It's probably the worst remake ever and was completely unnecessary (and another tick in Cage's column of increasingly awful films), but if you actually know what to expect then it's actually pretty funny in its awfulness; the acting and plot beats and sheer incredulity of it all make for something so bad it's almost good. Almost.

In fairness, I think the original poster knows that.

"Destiny turns on the radio". Quentin Tarantino is in it! :)

The Wicker Man - Nicholas Cage.
Brilliant comedy-played-straight that never gets the credit it deserves.

Cutter's Way - John Heard giving one of the best performances of the 80s.
Dodsworth - fantastic film with Walter Huston.
The Company of Wolves - brilliant fantasy/horror.
Southern Comfort - Walter Hill's best film.

The Great Waldo Pepper. Directed by George Roy Hill and starring Robert Redford about the early days of flying in the 20's, (barnstorming and flying stunt shows.) Excellent film.

The Choirboys - Robert Aldrich's black comedy about cops, based on the Joseph Wambaugh novel. Imagine M*A*S*H in blue instead of khaki.

I've been after picking up Begotten for ages now but I am loathed to pay the extortionate prices people are charging for it. From what I've seen though it's not exactly fitting for the `action forum' though.

I thought Innerspace had been forgotten until it was on TV the other week.

Think i've seen most of these, Lightning Jack is one of my guilty pleasures and anyhthing with John Candy is worth a watch. (Except wagons east) lol

I'll add:
Damnation Alley starring George Peppard
Oscar starring Sylvestor Stallone.(Another guilty pleasure) :D

Were any of those remembered in the first place? Quite a few of them I've never heard of. :)

How about Kramer vs Kramer - massive at the time, now you never hear of it.

Or maybe we should have a thread about films that shouldn't be real but are - like that one where John Wayne plays Genghis Khan.
