Cult movies

During my childhood, there are movies that mark us, those are some kind of lengerdary movies or references, … cult movies. For males who grew up in the 70’s, I’m sure their cult movie would be “The Godfather” … I’ve never seen it, because I was born in the 80’s. There are many movies that I consider as a “cult movie”, most of them where during the 80’s and 90’s. Here, I would just pick one of them “Cool As Ice” (1991).

Cool as Ice

I liked the guy from nowhere, original, little rebel, on his big bike mutlicolored. And there is the girl, so wise and so sweet … and they meet … it was “love at first sight”, at least for one of them, … you know, well a very predictable scenario, but anyway, it gives some punch and great humour. But it turns out that Critics didn’t agree so … They completely shouted down. And then, I was surprise to discover this movie was a remake of an older movie , you will never guess … “Rebel without a cause” (1955)  

Rebel Without a Cause

This movie is a classic movie. It was the first teen movie that really showed with emotions youngs’ torments towards parents, society, school, friends and life in general at that time. It is more drama than a comedy. And the master piece is of course, the legendary actor : James Dean.(East of Eden, Giant

Back to “Cool as Ice”, the rapper Vanilla Ice, more known for his rap song “Ice Ice baby“,  might have been to much pretentious to compare himself to James Dean. Nonetheless, many teen girls dreamed of a rebel on his bike that would take her to an extraorinary journey… Isn’t it girls? I don’t think your Prince Charming would be that guy on a white horse!
