The Cure On The Big & Small Screen

With 104 credits across TV and movies, asking what's the best The Cure moment on screen is impossible to answer but fun to think about. Here's a few to remind you of movies you need to rewatch, games you need to play and tickets you need to get. 

The Crow

The 1994 Brandon Lee classic is the movie embodiement of The Cure. 'Burn' soundtracks the moment Lee becomes The Crow and goths the world over wept tears of euphoric darkness. 

South Park

In the 12th episode of the first series, Robert Smith saved the world from Mecha-Streisand (think Barbara Streisand as a Transformer) by turning into a moth, while Kyle declared Disintegration the greatest album of all time. Yep that actually happened and it remains one of the highest rating episodes of the entire series. 

Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist

'Boys Don't Cry' is Nick's (Michael Cera) ringtone but there's a whole scene dedicated to the pair debating the merits of The Cure and whether they should have called themselves The Cause.

The Wedding Singer

Remember when Robbie's girlfriend Linda brutally dumps him because she's in love with the "spandex-tight wearing Robbie from 6-years-ago, not the $60-a-pop wedding singer" of the present? Cue the music of 'Boys Don't Cry'. 

Grand Theft Auto: Vice City

Cruise the streets of 80s Miami in your Xbox, turn on the Wave FM radio station and you'll hear 'A Forest'. 

The Rules Of Attraction

The most noughties movie of all time (starring Dawson, Ian Somerhalder - the dude from Smallville and Shannon Sossamyn - the girl who made out with Josh Hartnett in 40 Days & 40 Nights) opened with 'Six Different Ways'.Recommended reading: the clip below was posted by the film's director and in the YouTube bio he talks about Dawson at a strip club. 

He's Just Not That Into You

Although there's nine credits for 'Friday I'm In Love' the most well known is the trailer for the now classic rom-com He's Just Not That Into You. Enjoy!
