'Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day' -- The Last Cult Movie

29 October 2009 8:00 AM, PDT | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

The definition of just what makes a cult hit has changed in the ten years since Troy Duffy made "The Boondock Saints". The ubiquity of the Internet and the coming-of-age of a generation weaned on the copious amount of very specific information it offers has given almost every piece of media, film or other, its very own cult following.

By information, I mean easier access and smaller audiences. When you say a movie earned itself a cult following by "word of mouth" in 2009, you're typically saying that it fostered early hype thanks to a small but vocal online community, further cultivated through viral marketing. "The Boondock Saints" was the real deal, one of the very last cult movies to find its audience through literal word of mouth.

Throughout 2000 and 2001, college kids and action movie nerds traded this movie around like a secret handshake, something cool shared by those in the know. »

Fraggle Rock: New Spin-off Series to Feature the Doozers

8 April 2009 11:49 AM, PDT | | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

In some ways, the days of Fraggle Rock seem like such a thing of the past. It's been more than twenty years since the original Jim Henson series ended its run on HBO. Still, the happy little creatures have remained very popular in the Us as well as the UK, Australia, and New Zealand. In 2006, it was announced that the characters were being revived for an all-new feature film. That's still in the works and now, a new spin-off is making its way to television.

Fraggle Rock is the 1983 brainchild of innovative genius Jim Henson, the creator of the Muppets. In a world filled with lots of color and music, the Fraggles are happy creatures that live in an endless maze of underground caves. The series showcases the talents of Jerry Nelson, Richard Hunt, Hans Helmut Dickow, Gerard Parkes, Steve Whitmire, Dave Goelz, Kathryn Mullen, Karen Prell, and Henson.
