...done by the same guy that did League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. Yikes.
Too bad, too, because the reason the original was great was for one reason: Ray Harryhausen. That was his last F/X project, and the stop-motion effects still look great, IMHO - though slighly dated.
Oh, and anther great cult classic: F/X.
How, then, are those people of the future—who are taking steroids every day—going to look back on baseball players who used steroids? They're going to look back on them as pioneers. They're going to look back at it and say "So what?" - Bill James, Cooperstown and the 'Roids
takin it off
Street Fighter (w/ Sonny Chiba)
Any Bruce Lee flick
Fear of a Black Hat
Others I forgot I own that may (read: may) qualify as either "B" or "cult" films:
Saints and Soldiers
Glengarry Glen Ross
"The problem with strikeouts isn't that they hurt your team, it's that they hurt your feelings..." --Rob Neyer
"The single most important thing for a hitter is to get a good pitch to hit. A good hitter can hit a pitch that’s over the plate three times better than a great hitter with a ball in a tough spot.”
To movies not previously mentioned I'll add Sexy Beast and The Rocky Horror Picture Show.
edit: add Heathers to that.

I simply don't have access to a "cares about RBI" place in my psyche. There is a "mildly curious about OBI%" alcove just before the acid filled lake guarded by robot snipers with lasers which leads to the "cares about RBI" antechamber though. - Nate
Night Of The Living Dead
Roger Corman films....
Little Shop Of Horrors
Tales of Terror
The Pit and The Pendulum
As big a western fan that I am, I was never a fan of the western B movies from the 30s/40s. Too cheesy for me.
I loved such older B classic movies/series, such as the Bowery Boys and Ma and Pa Kettle.
But I really enjoy the 1950's science fiction and monster B movies....
The Incredible Shrinking Man (one of my favorites)
I Was A Teenage Werewolf (w/ Michael Langdon)
Creature From The Black Lagoon
The Amazing Colossal Man
Earth vs The Flying Saucers
But one of the best was The Day The Earth Stood Still
I also enjoyed Jason And The Argonauts and the Sinbad series of movies.
"panic" only comes from having real expectations
Withnail and I is my favorite movie ever (besides Almost Famous, decidedly not a cult movie). I think it has a pretty big cult surrounding it, especially in Great Britain. Harold and Maude is another one I love that I think is considered "cult".
There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.
One of the most memorable ones I've seen, although not a favorite is Doom Generation. A couple of scenes in that still haunt me to this day.
