    "Back before Uma Thurman turned nasty, and Samuel L. Jackson dealt with reptile infestations on planes, there was this masterpiece. Some people call it a cult film, but it's now got such mainstream appeal that I'm not sure that's accurate. Whatever the case, I found Jesus in my own briefcase because of it."

    "Great movie. Good price. Far out premise, fun to see with Emilio Estevez being so young and rebellious. Aliens from somewhere, (it is never even mentioned in the movie where or how they get here, why they are here, or what the hell they really are), get put in the trunk of a car that gets chased around LA by a bunch of Rebel Repo Men competing for the huge bounty the government puts on the car. They compete, race, fight, and generally cause havoc between themselves, and each other the whole time. Punk Rock Emilio, is the center of this tornado of chaos. I had forgotten how much I enjoyed this LA Sci-Fi Social Statement. Great combination comedy, campy action, fun social statement on state of 1970's / 80's LA social conditions. If you are looking for a quality, moving, heart rending story... Look somewhere else. This is fun, campy, non-conformist, and if it is not a cult-classic already, it should be.

    ""I might look bad, but I feeeelll goood", says the half-rotted zombie corpse as she throws her arms around the neck of the medieval warrior. "Army of Darkness" IS the best cult movie. It is a movie that is so bad, it is good. Once you begin watching this movie, you can't look away. Since you can't believe what you just watched, you feel the urge to watch it again...and again...and again. This happens to everybody who encounters this movie, and now it is a cult film, one of the best."
