...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.
". . . acquiring J. Blanton from Oakland for, apparently, Bailey/Cueto, Votto and a lesser prospect. I do it in a second . . . The Reds' equation this year is simple: Make Matt Belisle your #3 starter . . . trade for Blanton, win 85 or more, be in the mix all summer." - Paul Daugherty, Feb. 8, 2008
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.

a super volcano of ridonkulous suckitude.
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.
