    Fight Club was interesting. I saw it in the theater when it first came out.

    Office Space is still hilarious!

    As for The Princess Bride, I watched it for the first time in 2017. It had an ensemble cast. Though I will confess I did not really understand the film. It is hugely popular as a cult classic though, maybe because it is so indecipherable?

    Avatar was a really good film! I had no idea it already reached cult classic status!

    I think I would say that, despite its violence, The Warriors is a favorite cult classic of mine. What is interesting to me is that the film was based on a 1965 novel which was based on Anabasis, a story about an ancient Greek historical event.

    Anyway, the aesthetics of the film are bizarre.

    Here is an interesting scene: The Warriors vs. The Baseball Furies.

    I don't know that it ever reached cult status but the one that comes closest for me is Raising Arizona.

    There are some movies in this thread, I liked, but just don't enjoy anymore (lose something after the first time seeing it). There is one, I am surprised more people haven't actually seen (Soylent Green).

    John Carpenters first movie. Really low budget, space version of Dr Strangelove.
    Darkstar


    Probably what I would call a cult movie. Where some movies went from cult status to popular (Phantasm), or just started out popular (the Millennium Saga).
