    Shaun of the Dead is legit my favorite movie ever. Simon Pegg and Nick Frost are the best.

    Your definition of "cult film" is pretty broad. How lazy

    Finally my cities own Rita Sue and Bob Too has made it onto a list!

    I've only seen 8 of the 13 films mentioned in this video, and some of them are questionable imo as they're not to my taste, or aren't good enough to be in a top 10.

    Not sure what films I'd put in a 'Top 10 British Cult Films' list but…

    Some of my cities own films like:
    The Selfish Giant
    Billy Liar
    ID
    The Railway Children
    Yanks
    The Red Riding Trilogy
    Monty Pythons The Meaning of Life etc could be included.

    More contenders could be: Trainspotting, Scum, Dog Soldiers, Human Traffic, Kidulthood, Goodnight Charlie Bright, The Full Monty, The Football Factory, Starred Up, Offender, Harry Brown, Mean Machine, The Great Ecstasy of Robert Carmichael, Dead Man's Shoes, Billy Elliot, Piggy, Bullet Boy, Sugarhouse, The Inbetweeners 1 & 2 etc

    Ill Manors would definitely be on my list as it's unique, and massively underrated by the clueless critics who are mainly old OAP's who just don't get it and rated it poorly. It's basically a 'Gangster Musical' as in-between scenes there's basically a music video and song by the legendary Ben Drew aka Plan B which fills in the gaps. It's easily one of my favourite films of 2012, and has an excellent soundtrack to go with it.

    Rita Sue and Bob Too
    East is East (also partly filmed in my city) and
    Four Lions would definitely be included as films which are quoted again and again, with phrases such as:

    Rita Sue and Bob Too

    Aslam – "I can't help being a Paki?"
    Sue's Drunk Dad – "Yes you fucking can!"

    Sue's Drunk Dad "You'll not get a bleedin' job sittin' on your arse in here."
    Sue's Mum – "Look who's talking; you haven't done a day's work in years!"

    Rita while looking at Bob's penis – "It looks like a frozen sausage"

    "We're having a gang bang, we're having a ball……"

    East Is East

    Mrs Shah – "This is an insult to me and my family! I will never allow my daughters to marry into this jungly family of half-breeds!"
    Ella Khan – "Well, they may be half-bred, but at least they're not friggin' inbred like them two monstrosities."

    Ella Khan – "I'll will stick that fanny over your bastard head!"

    George Khan – "Bloody Bastard!"

    Four Lions

    Waj – "Rubby Dinghy Rapids Bro!"

    Waj – "I think I'm confused, but I'm not sure"

    Waj to a cop he suspects is gay – "Fucking Boy George!"

    Waj when told to eat his sim card – "Can I cook mine?"

    Waj confusing rabbits with chickens – "You fucked up rabbit with no ears"

    Waj – "We'll blow up the internet"

    Waj – "Fuck Mini Babybel's"

    Faisel – "Can I 12 bottles of bleach please?"

    Just the cast of Quadrophenia is legendary. Ray Winstone, Phil Daniels, Phil Davis and Sting. Great film but you're a decade out 😉
