Default What Cult Film Would You Most Like To See On The Big Screen?

Watching your favourite films at home on DVD and Blu-Ray is all well and good, but deep down everyone knows these films were made for a room full of people watching it on a massive screen. So the question is which film (or films) would you most like to watch in the theatre environment?

I was thinking about it and a film I would really like to see on the big screen is Mad Max II: The Road Warrior. It's such a fantastic looking film that confining it to a home entertainments system (though I will admit some home-set-ups are pretty impressive) seems to do it a bit of a disservice. Also the action packed nature would make it good to watch with other film fans, as we could cheer Max on in his fight against the Humongous.

Can you think of a film that would be even better to watch in the cinema? Stick it up here and tell everyone why.

The Searchers - Just to take in the landscape of Monument Valley.

Once Upon a Time in the West - an all time classic. (the first 20 minutes would do)

The Wild Bunch

I think the great westerns, the above three in particular , deserve to be seen on the biggest screen possible.

I agree any classic western (I normally prefer spaghetti to american) would be great. How fantastic would it be to see the Dollars trilogy on a massive silver screen?

The problem with spaghetti westerns is where they were filmed, Spain for example is no substitute for the widescreen panoramas of the American west.

I wouldn't normally say that, but this thread is about the cinema screen, not the films in general.

Fantastic list, thehamish.

Tarkovsky on the big screen would be especially mind-blowing.

The Night Of The Hunter.

My top three films of all-time have for many, many years been Once Upon A Time In The West, Night Of The Hunter and Apocalypse Now. I have seen Once Upon A Time In The West and Apocalypse Now on the big screen...
