My watchlist for October 2014
IMDb user 'millsy' created these Viwer's Guide Lists, check 'em out: http://www.imdb.com/list/ls002173817/
Thriller movies are my bread & butter. There's some crossover on this list, some humor, a bit of horror, not everything on here is a masterpiece, but they're all worth watching.
In no particular order.

Most of this list has been compiled from the recommendations from commentators on this page: What's On Your Cult Film List? http://www.npr.org/2011/12/07/143296617/what-s-on-your-cult-film-list

I think listing Back to the Future as a cult film is stretching it a little, but I'm sure they have their reasons. Cultographies.com's definition of cult film comes from an academic point of view, by their reasoning Pulp Fiction, Casablanca and Shawshank Redemption sit alongside Superstar: The Karen Carpenter Story, Eraserhead and Harold and Maude.

My watchlist for the week
Originally a free book that came packed with the November 1997 issue of Neon Magazine which was divided into 100 Categories, with 10 movies listed in each category.
The book has always had a place in my heart, ever since I pinched it out of the videostore where I worked in the late 90s. There's some real hidden gems listed.
*NOTE* There are a number of double listings throughout the list, probably mistakes in the original book. The grand total of movies listed came to 995. The double listed titles are:
The Elephant Man (1980) listed in both "The Depressing Movies" & "London Movies" categories.
Network (1976) listed in both "Journalist Movies" & "Movies About TV" categories.
Hardware (1990) listed in both "Robot Movies" & "Post Apocalyptic Movies" categories.
Vanishing Point (1971) listed in both "Chase Movies" & "Road Movies" categories.
Crimson Tide (1995) listed in both "Cold War Movies" & "Water Movies (Sinking" categories.
"Some Are Brilliant. Some Are Banned. Some Aren't Even Very Good, But Until You've Seen All These Movies, You Just Haven't Lived." --From Issue 5 of UK-based Neon Magazine, May 1997
Great list, great magazine, great time to be into movies.
