National Lampoon's The Legend of Awesomest Maximus

This 300 parody registers as a 0.


Comedy

Rod Lott
I understand 300 was a huge hit, but was it such a cultural milestone that it deserves — by my count — three feature-length parodies? And if it does, why not a good one? Hell, I'd settle for a mediocre one.

Disconnect

Log on for drama.


Drama

Rod Lott
Its technology will be dated hopelessly within a few years, but for now, Disconnect stands as an accurate parable on the dangers of the Internet.

The Burning

Third-degree terror.


Horror

Rod Lott
It speaks to the strength of The Burning’s reputation among cult-film fans that what’s most memorable about the 1981 slasher is not that it was written by the Weinstein brothers, nor that it represents early appearances of the likes of Jason Alexander, Holly Hunter and Fisher Stevens. It’s that its Cropsy is just a damned good villain.

The East

For an indie thriller with as much intelligence as intrigue, just head to ‘The East.’ No compass needed.


Thriller

Rod Lott
Across her three films as an actress/writer/producer (2011’s Another Earth, 2012’s Sound of My Voice and now The East), Brit Marling has explored the subjects of cults, symbols, duplicates, identity and family. Remarkably, despite these recurring themes and a tonal similarity, each experience seems anew.

The East

'East' meets best.


Thriller

Rod Lott
Across her three films as an actress/writer/producer (2011’s Another Earth, 2012’s Sound of My Voice and this summer's unjustly ignored The East), Brit Marling has explored the subjects of cults, symbols, duplicates, identity and family. Remarkably, despite these recurring themes and a tonal similarity, each experience seems anew.
