Besides They Live, John Carpenter's The Thing is a near-perfect
cult classic that has, since its initial disappointing box office in 1982, risen in the
ranks to be acknowledged as a true sci-fi horror movie classic. The film features strong effects, lean
storytelling, and a pitch perfect cast led by Kurt Russell as no-nonsense helicopter
pilot R.J. MacReady.

SPORK should be here.
The Sandlot is another good one that should have made the list. "You're killin' me Smalls."
Great list. There are a few obvious movies that are missing like Blazing Saddles and Space Balls but any list is usually going to be missing a few items.
Agree on Midnight Clear, I love that movie, too, but would a cult audience really show up for it? Midnight Run would bring a crowd, though, in my opinion, much like Fletch or The Goonies. Never heard of some of these "cult" flicks, but guess that's to be expected. Good list overall, I'd add Fast Times at Ridgemont High in The Goonies category. Saw it with a packed house that went bonkers for it.
Also, Midnight Clear and Midnight Run? I'm not sure if underated and underappreciated alone = cult movie. I've never heard anyone say "hey, we're all getting together at Jimmy's, he found a copy of A Midnight clear! Can you believe it? Guys are going to dress up as GI's and the girls are dressing up as Nazis"
Hey!!! Clerks belongs here, ABSOLUTELY, but why don't you use a pic from the movie!? Instead of it's sequel?
With 300: Rise of an Empire in theaters Friday, it's time to comb through the history books and pluck out the events...
