Now I've had many people roll their eyes at me when I showed em my copy of The Quartermass Xperiment. But what I really don't get was my friends reaction when I told him I had copies of Where Eagles Dare, The Dirty Dozen and Kellys Heroes. He goes,"How can you like that old @#$@!?!?, it sucks!" I almost backhanded him then and there! Those are some of the most manly movies ever made! Of course this is also they guy who me and my friends pretty much had to force to see all the old Star Wars and Indiana Jones movies... his response to all of them was, "their okay.. I guess, they could have used better visuals though." I really don't get that guy's movie tastes.

Movies don't measure up to video games, perhaps?

After trying to explain The Human Centipede to my wife, and having her practically run away with her hands over her ears, I know better than to tell anyone outside this board that I liked that movie. TeddyR

Imagine my surprise when I saw that one listed as part of the closing night of the Toronto After Dark Film Festival!  I bet it raised a few comments, even with that crowd.

I don't think so, hes not a big video game guy, I think he doesn't like any movie thats older than he is, not sure why.

It would have been a harder movie to watch if it hadn't been made with a sense of humour, and if Dieter Laser hadn't played Dr. Heiter as such an over-the-top mad scientist.

I'm usually excluded from picking movies when I'm with a movie watching group. Ah well more for me to enjoy.  Cheers

Strangely enough, "Dune" is what gets me criticized.  So much so, that I now use it as a threat.  :)  Most of my friends do not let me pick movies anymore....

You've got to keep that pimp hand strong. You shouldn't have let him go like that.

When SAMANTHA EGGAR eats the amniotic sac off of one of her tumor babies...  Lookingup  Yee-eeuh-uuhckk!!   TongueOut

We would have also accepted "licks the afterbirth off of her newborn stomach-sac fetus thing".   Cheers

What must have gone on in Cronenberg's head back in the 70s and 80s?!?!?  If these are the images that escaped, what did he keep to himself?

I seem to recall her tearing at it with her teeth... and then licking it...  TeddyR  Bluesad  Buggedout Couldn't find the clip and it's been 30 years, but I won't ever forget that the scene is way gross...

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
