Successories: Cult Classics Double-Header 
8th-Jun-2008 10:06 am
Wolf - Sunset Howl

This week marks the end of my "cult" and "bad" movie run with a double-header - one movie that few if any have heard of or remember (probably for the best) and one that's still near and dear to me. If you've never heard of or seen The Ice Pirates, you're really not missing a thing...it's BAD, but it also has the benefit of being the one movie that Robert Urich (when he was alive), Anjelica Houston and Ron Perlman probably kept off their resumes. Frankly, I'm amazed MST3K didn't get to this one (that I know of), but it really could've used that treatment. The other is The Fifth Element, which not only has a strangely blonde Bruce Willis (when he was still trying to fool the world into believing he wasn't bald), but is a fun sci-fi flick from a french director - AND IT STILL MADE SENSE.

I loved 5th Element.

You still need one with the Opera singer and one with Tricky.

I love old cheesey bad movies, so I will have to see this Ice Pirates film....

And the 5th Element is one of my favs. I heart Bruce Willis.
