Boondock Saints is a "B" movie? Well, then it's one of my favorites...lol.

I watch so many odd independent type movies anymore it's hard to tell what's a "B" movie. smile

I just looked up some info on this movie and found out it was shot in Italy. It also starred Barbara Bach!


I also watched that trailer and yes, it "borrowed" heavily from the Star Wars aesthetic.

Boondocks wasn’t expected to be a B movie, and IMO was better than that, but definitely a “B” cult classic now after it didn’t do well in theaters. If the writer/director didn’t blow it having such a big ego, he was at one time expected to be one of the best new talents.
I couldn’t watch the sequel. Also, weirdly, SPF was unrecognizable for some reason. Either a car wreck or platic surgery gone wrong, I don’t know. At first I thought it was someone else.

OMG, Ssnake mentioned Terminal Velocity, a perfect example of actors putting in a way better performance than the script or the production deserved.

Hahaha, me,too....I guess the pain killers are working too well on me. I do like that the airplane's prop spins the wrong way.

Bruce Campbell has a way of getting inexperienced actors to step up by example.

John Carpenter = genius and has an uncanny way of capturing a movie.

But agree The Thing was hardly a B movie.
I found it terrifying and it was a letterbox movie everyone went to it when it came out. Didn't you?
. In fact watching it still creeps me out to this day.
The why is both the way Carpenter makes movies and the subject place. And frankly the likelihood of it!
I practically was raised on Alistair MacLean novels and Ice Station Zebra was a later favorite. After that I thought for sure as an adult I would wind up on one of the poles in an either scientific or Spy mission!!
I guess The Thing really grabs me and 'rocked my world' is that there are UFO's and creatures under the ice (disclaimer; I never said that - I'd lose my Seti clearance!)

my favorite other carpenter classic is Big Trouble in Little China. also a true story
Starring the same lovable Kurt Russell.

Other favorites movies are Kelly's Heroes - but I would not call it cheesy. Has Clint Eastwood in it.
and btw;
ze "High Plains Drifter" a B movie!!! ....
NO!!!! ... Sacrilège!

I seen the second film first, had not seen or heard of the first one. The bluray of All Saints Day was in the local store and it looked interesting, so I took it home and really quite enjoyed it, thought it was cheesilly funny and the soundtrack hit the right note, so I went looking for the first film and got it on Amazon then got the soundtrack for both on iTunes.

"B" doesn't indicate low quality to me. "B" doesn't mean trash. There are bad B films, and very good ones. Just like there are AAA bombs.
B means you get exposure only to a very specific target audience. Maybe back in the early 1970s Westerns were still mainstream enough to consider High Plains Drifter an A movie (but certainly not AAA). Compared to today's production values and the fact that only Western fans go to watch a Western film in theaters (unless it happens to be directed by famous directors with a AAA cast, like Dances With Wolves, the True Grit remake, or No Country for Old Men) - well, in the light of these two aspects High Plains Drifter is a B film. Still not convinced? The film has a f'in' dwarf in it (it doesn't help that the sync voice actor in the German version was the same who voiced Stan Laurel).

And Kellys Heroes hits hard on the cheese. As a war film it is rather terrible (firing paint cans from the gun, really?). The plot - stealing Nazi gold with a tank - (and its twist) are taken straight from a pulp novel.
As an Italo-Western in a WW2 setting it's quite enjoyable, however. I just have to take off my tanker's goggles.

I think maybe we are getting into an issue of semantics. What you just described is known in the industry now as an "independent" or "artsy" film. "B movie" most definitely and always has a negative connotation attached to it.

Nice! Blood of Heroes was not only friggin awesome, it had a great cast to boot.
Rutger Hauer, Joan Chen, Vincent D’Onofrio, Delroy Lindo...


How about a foreign B movie?
Brotherhood of the Wolf.
It’s part 13th Warrior, part awesome martial arts movie.


Animated B movie:
Beowulf
Mostly a tech demo, but well done and excellent voice work with Ray Winstone, Anthony Hopkins, Robin Wright, Crispin Glover, Angelina Jolie...lots of recognizable actors.

In what way was this a B movie? It had a production budget of 150 million and it had a very wide theatrical release.

Yes, rhis movie is beyond comical at times.
This is a very funny review about it, do not watch it if you haven't seen the movie as it contains massive spoilers.

probably, just about any Western film ( early ones ) The Audie Murphy ones come to mind along with The World in his Arms , The Creature from the Black Lagoon and Flight to Mars.

To be honest, the only reason I watched the film was because I found out that it was directed by John Boorman who also directed "Excalibur" and "Deliverance" which happen to be 2 of my all-time favorite films.

The Last Dragon - C'mon, who wouldn't like Motown and 80s mixed with martial arts? Bruce Leroy V Sho'Nuff the Shogun of Harlem? William H. Macy in one of his first role, with Vanity even!
Lifeforce - Need I say more? BEsides you get to see Patrick Stewart in a B-movie
Machete - Nuff said
Machete Kills - Just Carlos Estevez being in it makes it a B movie right off the bat
Sword and the Sorcerer - A triple sword with flying blades, woohoo!
Beastmaster - Marc Singer did have his own movie and wasn't just fighting aliens in "V"
Wizards - Ralph Bakshi at his finest (well, besides how he tricked the networks into letting him do Mighty Mouse)
Creepshow - Ed Harris with hair and dancing disco should be b movie status alone
Creepshow 2 - I BEAT YOU!!! I BEAT YOU!!!!!
Cleopatra Jones - Gotta love it
Breakin and Breakin 2 - I thought Breakin was a decent movie (plus you get to see Jean Claude Van Damme dance) - Electric Boogaloo was defintitely cheesy though

The definition of B movie, in this thread, is rather inconsistent.
