I"m going to go with Repo Man  https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0087995/

It's a 6.9 but I think there's some "cult cred" added to that. I'm pretty sure I wore out two copies of the soundtrack cassette, before buying it on CD.

Repo Man was actually a good movie.

Sucker Punch had a pretty good soundtrack but almost everything else about it was awful, I only got through about 20 min.

Marie Antoinette, never seen it but it looks awful but has a great 80s post punk soundtrack.  Post punk having made a big come back in the early 2000s.

Yes! Sucker Punch would be my answer too.

Also- Transformers: The Movie.

TBH, I never really liked Purple Rain (the movie).  The soundtrack is fire.

I am always amused by your responses.  We agree on almost nothing important but when it comes to running shoes and movie soundtracks we are soul mates.

Someone get to Flash Gordon yet? Incredible soundtrack (by Queen). Amazing visuals. Train wreck of a script.

Never understood the love for that soundtrack, among other issues the main theme is just stupid.

You are dead to me. Both of you. That movie is utterly flawless in every conceivable way.

I don't know about "flawless" - that "football" scene comes to mind - but yes the soundtrack is awesome.

Its an absolute train wreck but as a cult film is utterly flawless in every conceivable way.   ;D

If we are going to bring up cult films you could easily put Rocky Horror on the list too but I was not thinking cult films belonged on the list.  (then again as I go through them several of these are cult films)
