5 Weird movies

They are zany, they are twisted and they are insane. Here is a list and gist of 5 of the most insane movies (in no particular order) that I have watched

EARTH GIRLS ARE EASY


Jeff Goldblum, Jim Carrey and Geena Davis star in this weird movie about an alien spaceship containing 3 aliens (a red alien, a green alien and a blue alien) that lands in a swimming pool in America and the weirdness that ensues is unparalleled, well almost.


A CLOCKWORK ORANGE


"a bit of the old ultra-violence"

This is one weird movie that I enjoyed a lot. It is one movie that deserves its cult status! I love this movie!


I HEART HUCKABEES


This movie to me is the epitome of weirdness, a couple play detectives who help solve existential issues and the movie makes no sense whatsoever and is NOT funny by any stretch of imagination. Oh and I cannot stand Lily Tomlin so she helps the movie grow weirder exponentially


REVOLVER



Guy Ritchie and Jason Statham, a surefire combo to success right? WRONG! this is one movie that takes action to various metaphysical planes and gives the viewer a doped feeling. You guys were involved in Lock Stock... and Snatch. What went wrong here guys??


TRAINSPOTTING



Man, this dope head movie is one that will make it to my weird movie list every time.

Oh my God. You put Revolver, The Clockwork Orange & Trainspotting on your Weird List?! :)

Those are films that I thought were VERY good. Outlandish, yes. To a certain extent. But they'd probably make my list of favourites. :P

Good stuff you have here - dropped in from Camphor's. :)

Re: Clockwork, my bad. :) It's surreal and fantastic. *Nostalgia*

Btw, have you read Trainspotting? A trying read, because of the phonetic language, but worth it.

And I'll catch In Bruges asap. :)

The Clockwork Orange is amazing! But the book is much, much, better. And gladly I read before I watched...

Did you see Pi? That would qualify as another weird but very good movie from my eyes...

CO:The book is good too !
