2848 7.5 7.81. Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas (1998)
[watching Dr. Gonzo leave]
Raoul Duke: "There he goes. One of God's own prototypes. A high-powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die."
Quite simply one of the weirdest and best movies I've ever seen. Each scene was more bizarre than the one before it, from riding through bat country, to the hotel and Bazooko's Circus, it was all pretty wonderful.
973 6.6 6.42. Funny Games (2007)
[talking to the viewers, breaking the fourth wall]
Paul: "What do you think? Think they stand a chance?"
What makes this movie so weird is that unlike most killers, these two seem to have no real motive, no reason to commit horrific crimes, they just do it to have a little fun. Their constant lying, taunting, and name-changing make it odd, disturbing, but ultimately pretty damn interesting to watch.
2181 7.4 7.43. The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975)
Frank-N-Furter: "A mental mind fuck can be nice."
The quote above pretty much describes how I feel about this movie. Ultimately I found it to be incredibly hilarious and a lot of fun, definitely a weird one.
326 6.5 6.34. The Tracey Fragments (2007)
Tracey Berkowitz: "Look, the other day, something happened. I came to certain realizations. I can't tell you what or you'll end up like me, on this bus, looking for someone."
I mean, the entire movie was fragments, bits and pieces of everything that eventually all came together and made sense. The dialogue, the characters, the whole set up of the film was odd, it was good though.
5218 8.2 8.45. A Clockwork Orange (1971)
Alex: "It's funny how the colors of the real world only seem really real when you viddy them on the screen."
The dialogue, the outfits, the characters, the concepts. All incredibly weird and entirely brilliant!
472 7.3 7.56. Welcome to the Dollhouse (1995)
Brandon: "Yo Weiner, you better get ready, 'cause at three o' clock today, I'm gonna RAPE you!"
I don't know if this movie was more weird, or just awkward. Either way the series of events and the hilarious dialogue has made it a favourite.
7991 8.4 8.97. Fight Club (1999)
Narrator: "On a long enough time line, the survival rate for everyone drops to zero."
Some people may try to argue that Fight Club isn't a weird movie but I'd have to disagree. Maybe a lot of people don't see it as weird anymore because we all love it so much. It's odd and witty and generally amazing.
855 8 8.18. Harold and Maude (1971)
Harold: "I haven't lived. I've died a few times."
A movie about an unconventional kind of love that is funny and beautiful at the same time.
5037 7.7 8.19. Donnie Darko (2001)
[to Cherita Chen]
Donnie: "I promise, that one day, everything's going to be better for you."
The plot of this movie was definitely unique, it somehow became less weird once I knew what was going on, but I'll admit it was still odd. I really love the dialogue, I find this is one of those movies I can watch over and over again.
557 6.6 6.810. Spun (2002)
Ross: "You know what the best thing is? I'm not hooked...I could stop at any time."
I imagine if I was a drug addict I probably wouldn't find this movie to be so weird. Needless to say the hallucinations and frantic pace of Ross' activities keep it odd and interesting.
893 7.1 7.411. Heathers (1988)
J.D.: "I like it. It's got that what-a-cruel-world-let's-toss-ourselves-in-the-abyss type ambiance."
I classify this movie as weird compared to the other teen movies that came out of the 80's. As a black comedy it's obviously supposed to be odd, it's incredibly funny, one of my all-time favourites for sure!
975 7.3 7.512. Everything Is Illuminated (2005)
Alex: "Make sure to secure the door when I am gone. There are many dangerous people who wanna take things from Americans, and also kidnap them. Good night!"
The plot itself isn't so unusual but the dialogue and the way in which the movie was filmed makes it so. It ends up being an incredibly touching movie, really wonderful.
773 7.3 7.413. Wristcutters: A Love Story (2006)
Mikal: "Are you joking? Do you guys like it here? Who the hell likes being stuck in a place where you can't even smile? It's hot as balls, everybody's an asshole. I just wanna go home."
A movie that starts with the main character killing himself and is set after the fact, kind of weird if you ask me. The whole idea for this movie, the way it was filmed, and the characters make it lovely and strange.
808 7.9 814. Freaks (1932)
Freaks: "We accept you, one of us! Gooble Gobble!"
Weird, sad, at times disturbing, it's a really interesting movie.
1098 7.2 7.415. Lars and the Real Girl (2007)
Lars Lindstrom: [after giving some flowers to Bianca] "See they're even fake so they'll never die."
I started watching this expecting it to be a comedy, you know, guy falls in love with sex-doll, pretty funny right? Well it turned out to be a lot more than I expected definitely odd and almost uncomfortable at times, but in the best way possible.
2626 7.4 7.816. Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory (1971)
Willy Wonka:"Are the fires of hell a-glowing? Is the grisly reaper mowing? Yes! The danger must be growing,for the rowers keep on rowing, and they're certainly not showing,any signs that they are slowing!"
A childhood staple but clearly a rather bizarre movie. Not quite as ridiculous as it's re-make, but rather fascinating and sometimes a little creepy (ex: the tunnel scene). Possibly one of my favourite movies when I was younger.
3368 7.4 7.817. Being John Malkovich (1999)
Craig Schwartz: "What happens when a man goes through his own portal?"
Entering the mind of John Malkovich, yeah that's definitely different. To be fair I haven't seen this movie in years, but it's undeniably weird and really enjoyable to watch.
