    No. That is creepy. Not the Karen carpenter. But the fact that someone made that film.

    Faster pussycat kill kill. Pink flamingoes. Female Trouble. There’s a lot of bad films. But they’re watchable
    . That one is wicked bad scary insight into the soul of the director.

    PS. Thx for the carpenter ear worm. What a sweet voice. And actually good music.

    Thanks for that. I was listening to someone talk about Barbie the other day and I couldn’t remember the name of Haynes’ film when I was trying to tell them about it. I have a crappy dvd copy of it somewhere but that YouTube is a lot better. Todd Haynes is pretty fukn awesome, IMO.

    And I thought I'd breached The Pale, here on TGR! Courtesy of CS, no less! Ha ha.

    I actually really like The Carpenters. And Superstar!

    I contain multitudes, I guess, like pretty much everyone.

    Watched this yesterday:

    HEAD (aka The Monkees Movie)
    This trippy musical was meta before meta was cool and hip and the go-to for movies aimed at millennials. Kinda ironic, since The Monkees were a prefab ideology aimed at youth.
    Co-written by Jack Nicholson, the film is a semi-surreal romp wherein The Monkees themselves peel back the curtain on their plastic personas. Recurring themes of being trapped in a box along with gonzo dance numbers, anti-war sentiments, and Old Hollywood schtick, not to mention a great score, make this a wonderful watch.

    Some of my favorites to add to the already mentioned:

    Dark Star (comical prototype for Alien)
    The Forbidden Zone (I prefer the colorized version)
    The Fly (Jeff Goldblum remake)
    Shakes the Clown ("the Citizen Kane of alcoholic clown movies")
    Killer Klowns from Outer Space (music by The Dickies)
    Postal (Uwe Boll)
    UHF (Weird Al)
    Escape From Tomorrow (guerrilla film making at Disney World)
    Cannibal the Musical (film school project by the South Park guys)
    Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas (worthy film version of cult classic book)
    Class of Nukem High (my favorite of the Troma flicks)
    Tapeheads (already mentioned, but awesome enough to deserve another mention)
    The Brady Bunch Movie (surprisingly great TV show adaptation)
    Big Time (Tom Waits)
    I'm Gonna Git You Sucka (Shaft parody, mostly)
    Ishtar (aimed for mainstream, but beaten up enough to qualify as cult)
    Popeye (one of Robin Williams' more off the wall performances)
    many to most movies by Jarmusch (Stranger than Paradise), Waters (Pink Flamingoes), Verhoeven (Showgirls)

    The Jimmy Buffet thread reminded me of this one - Rancho Deluxe.

    An often overlooked/forgotten coming-of-age road trip gem.

    I always wish I had seen this flick before I went to college…

    John Stamos as a super spy?
    Check.
    Gene Simmons as a flamboyant super villain?
    Check.
    Car stunt later ripped off by the Fast and the Furious franchise?
    Check.

    It’s not totally forgotten, but it’s weird to me that it doesn’t see the same retro love as something like stripes. It really should be a cult movie but I don’t think it really is yet. Maybe the 40’yr anniversary will jump start it again
