Some movies become big, beloved successes right off the bat, celebrated by one and all. Some movies need to fight for it: they're overlooked, undervalued, and just plain dismissed, treasured only by a tiny audience biding the day that might never come when the object of their affection finally gets its moment in the sun. For this episode, we're celebrating our favorite examples of these wonderful, idiosyncratic little gems, with our picks for the best cult movies of all time, no matter how big or small the cult.
In Worth Mentioning we cover: Da 5 Bloods, You Should Have Left and The King of Staten Island.
We've looked at our favorite movie moms. And we've looked at our favorite example of movies about daddy issues, that most reliable crutch for lazy screenwriters. But with Father's Day coming up, we decided it was long since time that we gave good dads their time in the sun, which is why our next episode is going to be all about our very favorite dads in the movies. Maybe they're kind sources of wisdom, maybe they're fun buddies who teach their children the importance of getting out there and living life, and maybe they're the heads of powerful mafia families manipulating the lifes of dozens of people just to give their sons a good chance at a better future. We love 'em all, and we're excited to share with you our picks for the best movie dads.
