The 9th Annual Sci-Fi/Fantasy Challenge List Thread

The 9th Annual Sci-Fi/Fantasy Challenge List Thread

Discussion Thread

Rules: Dates: Dusk June 30-Dawn August 1st
Spoiler:
Movies/TV shows should be labeled sci-fi or fantasy from either imdb.com or allmovie.com. Other labels don't matter as long as there is at least a sci-fi or fantasy label from one of those sites. Action/Sci-fi would be fine.

If anyone has a problem with something someone watches or just wants an opinion on if it's sci-fi or fantasy or not, ask here.

Sci-Fi/Fantasy documentaries are allowed but not DVD featurettes/interviews. Documentaries include UFO and alien abduction type shows.

As with the other challenges, the lists must be numbered or it won't count.

Use any counting method you prefer, as prize determination does not depend on number of items watched.

3 wild cards for all. Use for those shows you want to watch but know they really don't count but they're pretty close or borderline to counting.


Watching the movie with the commentary will count as an entry.

Watching multiple versions(theatrical and director's cut) of the same movie will also count.

Exception: The Tarzan movies count for your watch list but not for the check list.

How to win a prize

There's 1 way to get an entry:
Participate by watching at least 1 item


Audio:

Sci-fi/Fantasy Radio

I'm treating audio harshly since this is primarily a movie/tv challenge. That being said, one episode, 4 hours with commercials, of Coast to Coast counts as one entry. It's the same format for TV, only doubled. The topic of the show has to be sci-fi/fantasy related, so it shouldn't be that much of a problem with Coast to Coast.

If you're listening to something without commercials, or can skip them, you're looking at 3 hours of audio for one entry.

1/4 entry = 45 minutes without commercials and 60 with commercials.

1/2 entry = 90 minutes without commercials and 120 with commercials.

3/4 entry = 135 minutes without commercials and 180 with commercials.

1 entry = 180 minutes without commercials and 240 with commercials.


Checklist:
Spoiler:
*Watching enough shorts or TV to count as one entry, you can use that one entry as a check on the checklist, as long as each of them count for whatever you're checking. You can mix and match what you've seen to make a check, they all don't have to be grouped together as a single entry on your watch list.

Re: The 9th Annual Sci-Fi/Fantasy Challenge List Thread

Mr. Cellophane's 9th Annual Sci-Fi/Fantasy Challenge List



"We don't create a fantasy world to escape reality. We create it to be able to stay." - Lynda Barry

*= first time viewing
blue= personal BluRay
black= personal DVD
green= streaming
orange= theatrical presentation
purple= borrowed or rented BD/DVD

*** WARNING: Possible Spoilers and Armchair Theorizing in Comments ***

June 30th
1. Tomorrowland (Brad Bird, 2015 / United States / BD)*
--- Imagine a place where nothing is impossible. Brad Bird's treatise on the power of the individual and the struggle between optimism and despair is much better than the reviews led me to believe. Several critics compared the film to the philosophies of Ayn Rand, but the film actually rejects some of her ideas and focuses on how people need to focus on society's problems and cooperate to succeed. Also, how does George Clooney get more attractive as he ages?

July 1st
2. Ant-Man (Peyton Reed, 2015 / United States)*
--- Heroes don't get any bigger. What an enjoyable movie! I'm not sure why I waited so long to watch it, especially since I wanted to see it before Civil War (which is thankfully still playing at a nearby theater). Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly are welcome additions to the Marvel lineup, and I hope this movie will lead to cameos of Michael Douglas (perhaps chatting with Stellan Skarsgård).

July 3rd
3. Star Trek: Voyager: 2.26, "Basics, Part I" / 3.1, "Basics, Part II" (1996 / United States / Netflix Instant)*
--- The crew of the Voyager is manipulated by their enemies and left for dead on a primitive planet. It's up to Tom, the Doctor, and Suder to save the day. This two-parter was a step-up from many of the second season's episodes. There was a nice mix of character stuff and action.
4. Watership Down (Martin Rosen, 1978 / United Kingdom / BD)*
--- One of my friends recently read the book and wanted to revisit the film, so she asked me if I would like to join her. I liked the film, but it felt like a CliffsNotes version of the story. She fleshed out some of the story and characters for me afterward (including some of the language the author developed).

July 4th
5. Star Trek: Voyager: 3.2, "Flashback" / 3.3, "The Chute" (1996 / United States / Netflix Instant)*
--- While investigating a nebula, Tuvok struggles with a repressed memory that threatens brain damage. Next, Tom and Harry are wrongfully convicted of a terrorist attack and must survive an experimental prison. Both episodes have interesting themes and situations but are ultimately bogged down by plot conveniences that don't pay off.
6. The Thief of Bagdad (Raoul Walsh, 1924 / United States)*
--- Douglas Fairbanks plays Ahmed, the titular Thief, who falls in love with a beautiful princess. This is one of the best silent films I've seen. It has amazing special effects, including a number of monsters Ahmed encounters on his quest to win the princess's heart.
7. Soylent Green (Richard Fleischer, 1973 / United States)
--- It's the year 2022... People are still the same. They'll do anything to get what they need. And they need SOYLENT GREEN. Charlton Heston plays a detective who goes too deep into the murder of a corporate bigwig. The film postulates a world that has slowly descended into chaos due to overcrowding and global warming. It doesn't appear to be a possible future given the theological advances we've made.

July 5th
8. Star Trek: Voyager: 3.4, "The Swarm" / 3.5, "False Profits" (1996 / United States / Netflix Instant)*
--- The Doctor is on the fritz, and a lot of hostile aliens in tiny ships are trying to kill everyone. Then, the Voyager runs into a duo of Ferengi because of course they do. Both episodes are pretty lackluster (a word I'll probably use again) despite interesting premises. On a positive note, Kes and Neelix aren't the absolute worst in these episodes.
9. Battlestar Galactica: The Miniseries: "Part 1" (2003 / United States)
--- After years of silence, the Cylons attack the Colonies on the day the Galactica is decommissioned. The series starts with a bang (and then an extended tracking shot) that signals that this is a lot grittier than it's predecessor.
10. Battlestar Galactica: The Miniseries: "Part 2" (2003 / United States)
--- With most of the Twelve Colonies decimated, Adama takes control of the Galactica and Roslin helms a rescue mission to roundup as many survivors as possible. I love this miniseries. It perfectly introduces the characters and themes the show will explore.

July 6th
11. Star Trek: Voyager: 3.6, "Remember" / 3.7, "Sacred Ground" (1996 / United States / Netflix Instant)*
--- Torres has vivid dreams that may be connected to a telepathic race the Voyager is transporter. Then, Kes is in a coma for being stupid, and Janeway has to undergo a religious experience to save her. The first episode is great and really showcases Torres. The next episode is a bit muddled but manages to do some interesting things.
12. The Omega Man (Boris Sagal, 1971 / United States)*
--- Pray for the last man alive. Because he's not alone. Charlton Heston has a nervous breakdown in the daylight and must hide in the night from an infected cult that tries to kill him. The film is definitely a product of the 70s and its culture and anxieties. Rosalind Cash is great as a fellow survivor.

July 7th
13. The Exterminating Angel (El ángel exterminador) (Luis Buñuel, 1962 / Mexico / DVD)*
--- The degeneration of high society! A group of upper class people get together for a dinner party and find that they cannot leave their hosts' music room. Those trapped become desperate and descend into chaos.
14. Mystery Science Theater 3000: 3.8, "Lost Continent" (1990 / United States / YouTube)*
--- The boys struggle through a slow-as-molasses film about a group of military men and scientists trying to find a crashed rocket. Also there are dinosaurs for no goddamn reason. There are some films that I'm compelled to watch after seeing the MST3K version; it is not one of those films.
15. The Amazing Transparent Man (Edgar G. Ulmer, 1960 / United States)*
--- The Most Amazing Picture Of The Year! He's Invisible! He's Deadly! A crazed military man forces a brilliant scientist to make a career criminal invisible so he can steal stuff so there can be an invisible army. This was very, very silly.
16. Star Trek (J.J. Abrams, 2009 / United States)
--- The future begins. The gang gets together and creates a new timeline when a rogue Romulan and an old Spock show up from the future. I have a lot of feelings about this film. I find it very enjoyable, but it is not my Star Trek. It's a Trek universe informed by overblown spectacle and the collateral damage of countless modern blockbusters. But I still like it.

June 30 (dusk)
1. Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. (2015)-Blu-Ray--My daughters are trained for battle, sir, not the kitchen.
The pleasure of the book was the mashup of Jane Austen's comedy of manners and bloody zombie action. The film doesn't quite capture the wit of Austen's Regency romance or the zombie gore, and it really missed some opportunities to hit both well, but overall it was entertaining.
2. Atlantis: The Lost Continent. (1961)-DVD--All nature senses that the end is near. Man alone turns deaf ears to nature's warnings.
For some reason, MGM cut the budget for this movie, even after the wild success of Pal's previous film, The Time Machine. Consequently, it looks really cheap, and is padded with stock footage from other MGM pictures. If Pal could have had another pass at the script and a decent budget, this could have been a classic.

July 1
3. 10 Cloverfield Lane (2016)-Blu-Ray--Nobody's looking for you.
Outstanding film, a great start to the month! I'm glad I went into this blind because navigating the twists and turns and the ending were all a lot of fun.
4. Cell (2016)-Amazon--You're saying when that kid saw us, they all saw us?
Ugh, I went from an awesome sci-fi film to a real clunker. Cell has been on the shelf for 3 years, and I can see why. The filmmakers took one of King's most interesting and relevant novels and ruined it. John Cusack sleepwalks through the film, although Samuel Jackson does his best with what he's given, and a lot of King's plot and themes were jettisoned in favor of a dopey, incoherent ending. Total dreck.
5. The Next Voice You Hear . . . (1950)-TV--Johnny, how many times have I told you? Don't do like I do; do like I say. In the pre-TV era, James Whitmore as Joe Smith, American (as he is listed in the credits) who's dissatisfied with his life and fearful that his pregnant wife might die in childbirth, hears the voice of God over the radio, along with every person on Earth (except for the Commies). It's a dopey, sentimental, religious-but-not-too-specific-about-it flick.
6. Chappie (2015)-TV-- I'm consciousness. I'm alive. I'm Chappie. Number 5 is alive! Wait, wrong movie. Basically, this is Short Circuit except this has scary guys with prison tats committing a crapton of violence. Oh, and Hugh Jackman as the villain looking damn fine. Casting rappers in major roles was a mistake because they can't act.

July 2
7. Fantastic Planet (1973)-Blu-Ray-- You're not very bright, like all tame Oms. A relic of the 1970s midnight movie era, Fantastic Planet is a surreal animated film about the interactions of the Draags, a blue-skinned race of giant aliens, and the Oms, their captive humans they regard as no more than pets. The soundtrack is pure 70s and very French.
8. Titan A.E. (2000)-TV--You can't beat the Drej, they're pure energy! I haven't seen this since I watched in the theater 16 years ago, but it holds up well. Yes, the plot beats are predictable, but the animation's great and it's still a terrific story.
9. First Men in the Moon (1964)-TV-- Madam, the chances of bagging an elephant on the Moon are remote. Astronauts on the moon discover they were beaten to first landing by an expedition during the Victorian era. Every part of this film works, and it's a rousing adventure story that the whole family can watch.

July 3
10. The Brass Bottle (1964).
--Oh, my Kum Kum came.
A pleasant little fantasy starring Tony Randall as an average guy whose life is hopelessly complicated by the eager-to-please jinn played by Burl Ives that he accidentally liberates from the title container.
11. The 7 Faces of Dr. Lao. (1963)-DVD--Mike, the whole world is a circus if you look at it the right way.
More Tony Randall, this time in multiple roles in this beautiful gem of a film that has affected me profoundly over the years. We're all a part of the great circus of Dr. Lao.
12. Air (2015)-DVD--It's not murder, it's survival.
Not great, but interesting. Terrorists poisoned the Earth's atmosphere and destroyed most of the life on Earth, but the US government stashed people it deemed important in underground bunkers to hibernate until the crisis passes. Norman Reedus and Djimon Hounsou play technicians who wake every 6 months to care for the facility.

July 4
13. Strange Invaders (1983)-Blu-Ray--I know this is gonna sound ridiculous but I think a strange woman's locked herself in my bathroom. Fun little flick that's a deliberate play on 1950s sci-fi movies.
Wild Card # 1. 14. National Treasure (2004)-DVD--Yeah... the aliens helped them.
Thoroughly ridiculous but fun film, with a treasure map hidden on the back of the Declaration of Independence
15. Independence Day (1996)-Blu-Ray--Welcome to Earth! Mandatory viewing today.

July 5
16. Big Trouble in Little China (1986)-Blu-Ray--May the wings of liberty never lose a feather!
One of the best movies of the 80s. It took me a few viewigs to realize that Russell isn't the hero; he's just the comedy relief who thinks he's a hero.
17. Here Comes Mr. Jordan (1941)-Blu-Ray--I don't want anybody's body. I want my body!
Robert Montgomery is great as deceased boxer Joe Pendleton whose soul is stashed in the body of a corrupt millionaire. I prefer this this to the Warren Beatty remake.

July 6
18. Independence Day: Resurgence (2016)-Theatrical--They like to get the landmarks.
Emmerich had 20 years to think of a sequel and this is what he came up with? As Judd Hirsch would say in this movie, Oy.

July 7
19. I, Robot (2004)-TV--One day they'll have secrets... one day they'll have dreams. The producers should have used Harlan Ellison's screenplay. This is a fine action film, but apart from the Three Laws of Robotics, it has almost no relationship to Isaac Asimov's book.

July 8
20. The Last Witch Hunter (2015)-TV-- Who said that a witch can't hunt witches?
Against all expectations, I enjoyed this. Fast-moving, with twists along the way, and very entertaining.

July 9
21. The Martian (2015)-Blu-Ray--So... I blew myself up.
Terrific hard SF story.

July 10
22. 2010 (1984)-TV--All these worlds are yours except Europa. Attempt no landings there. Although set in 2010, the story is mired firmly in Reagan-era cold War geopolitics. On the brink of global thermonuclear war, the Soviets and the Americans are traveling to the Discovery in orbit around Jupiter to uncover what happened to the astronauts from 2001. 2010 is a well-made film, but it hasn't aged well.

July 11
23. X the Unknown (1956).
--How do you kill mud?.
Film students should study X the Unknown because it succeeds brilliantly with writing and direction despite a low budget and cheap effects.
24. Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer (2007)-TV--I'll show you a rock slide! I don't know why the Fantastic 4 franchise seems to elude filmmakers. 4 characters, each with just one defining trait. How hard is it to write a decent film for them?
25. Hot Tub Time Machine 2 (2015)-TV-- Let's go check out the future strip club situation
A wholly unnecessary sequel. I'm as partial to a dick joke as the next guy, but that's al this load of crap has to offer. It's as if the filmmakers lost a bet and had to produce this screenplay as a penalty.

July 12
26. Bicentennial Man (1999)-TV-- There must be a reason that I am as I am. There must be. Chris Columbus's pedestrian touch and Robin William's treacly performance drag down this adaptation of Isaac Asimov's famous short story.
27. High-Rise (2016)-TV-- Looks like the rot's set in I've never read this J.G. Ballard story, but the film retains his sense of alienation I've found in his other works. The direction feels a bit like a student film with the viewer getting hit over the head with Symbolism, in which a futuristic tower block is the scene for bloody revolution and societal collapse. The film's very British sense of class consciousness really doesn't translate well for an American audience, which likes to pretend that class does not exist.
28. Airplane II (1982)-TV--No. I don't think I'll ever get over Macho Grande. Not as great as the original, but well worth watching, although it's sad to see how thin Stephen Stucker had become, knowing now that he was dying from AIDS.

July 13
29. Dune (1984)-TV--The Sleeper must awaken!
I like Dune now better than I did when I saw it in the theater, but the special effects are awful.
30. Wayward Pines (2016)-TV--"Time Will Tell" S2E7/ "Pass Judgment" S2E8

July 15
31. Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (2007)-TV--Working hard is important, but there's something that matters even more. Believing in yourself. Somehow I never caught this one, and it's quite good. Imelda Staunton is wonderful as the loathsome pepper pot-shaped Dolores Umbridge.
32. The Scorch Trials (2015)-TV--Don't let me turn into one of those things. What the hell was this about? All I got out of it was a gaggle of young people running from an organization called WICKD because, gee, that's subtle.

July 16
33. Back to the Future (1985)-Blu-Ray--Roads? Where're going, we don't need roads. It's sobering to realize that we are further from 1985 than 1985 was from 1955. I'm still waiting for flying cars.
34. Back to the Future II (1989)-Blu-Ray--The justice system works swiftly in the future now that they've abolished all lawyers.. 26 years ago we were laughing at Trump. Now he could be president. I need a time machine now.

July 17
35. Back to the Future III (1990)-Blu-Ray-- Your future is whatever you make it. So make it a good one, both of you. IMO, this is the weakest of the trilogy, but still immensely fun. Doc Brown is trapped in the Old West of 1885, and Marty has to back in time to rescue him. Nice cameo by ZZTop.
36. War of the Worlds (1953)-TV--No one would have believed in the middle of the 20th Century that human affairs were being watched keenly and closely by intelligences greater than Man's.
Probably George Pal's best film, with amazing effects for the time. You can tell it's from the 50s when Gene Barry suggests looking for food, and we cut to Ann Robinson cooking up eggs and bacon.
37. The Time Machine (1960)-TV--No one would have believed in the middle of the 20th Century that human affairs were being watched keenly and closely by intelligences greater than Man's.
The effects here are not quite as good as the previous film, but Rod Taylor's dynamic performance is excellent.
38. Total Recall (1990)-TV--Consider that a divorce!
Total Recall's villains are bad at their jobs. What kind of moron fires a gun in a dome that is their only protection against a vacuum? Then again, why was the dome's back up designed to be manually activated instead of being automatic?

July 18
39. Dreamscape (1984)-TV--Either you work for me or you die.
When this came out, it got great reviews, including praise for the effects. Now the chromakey looks really dated, but still well worth watching.

July 19
40. The Death of "Superman Lives": What Happened? (2015)-TV--My script for "Superman Lives" was basically fan fiction.
Sometimes when you hear about a failed film project, you yearn for what could have been as in Alejandro Jodorowsky's vision of Dune. Then we have projects like Superman Lives, where we see how a trainwreck was averted. Seriously, Nicolas Cage as Superman?

July 20
41. Fantastic Voyage (1964)-Blu-Ray-- But I don't want to be miniaturized!
Although the FX are painfully dated and obvious, I still really enjoy watching this film's journey through a human body. The straight boys, of course, leer over Raquel Welch, but I was checking out Stephen Boyd's chassis.

July 21
42. Journey to the Center of Time (1967).
--They're trapped. . . in the future!
Ultra-low budget drive-in fodder about a trio of scientists who accidentally open a time rift 5,000 years in the future. I was able to get into it until Lyle Waggoner showed up in white-face makeup as an alien.
43. Jeff Wayne's Musical Version of the War of the Worlds Alive on Stage! The New Generation (2013).
--
For some reason, Universal never released this filmed live concert of Jeff Wayne's rock opera adaptation of HG Wells's novel in the US. This Youtube version is different from R2 DVD, which stars Liam Neeson as The Journalist instead of Richard Burton from the original album.
44. The Magic Carpet (1951)-TV--Such a handsome doctor! A fun ride, the kind of movie you used to see on afternoon weekends before infomercials came along. Lucille Ball plays a not-exactly Arabic-looking femme fatale just a year before she hit success with I Love Lucy, John Agar is as wooden as ever, playing a bandit/ rebel called The Scarlet Falcon. Call me naive, but if you are a fugitive waging a guerilla war against a tyrannical sultan, do you really want to sashay around the desert in a flaming red robe and headdress?

July 22
45. The Purge: Election Year (2016)-Theatrical--Hope can lead to a lot of let down.
Best of the series, IMO. I'm worried that Trump is going watch this and The Hunger Games and add a new plank to his platform.

July 23
46. Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1956)-TV--They're here already!
The grandaddy of paranoia, IotBS has an eerie atmosphere stat still terrifies the viewer, despite lacking the gore effects of the 1978 and 1990 remakes.
47. The Fly (1958)-TV--HELP MEEEEE!
The climax of The Fly gave generations of kids nightmares. The Fly takes a while to get going, but is still an effectively scary film in parts, although the fly head is a bit laughable compared to the slow rot of Chris Walas's makeup in the 1986 remake.

July 24
48. Batman Forever (1995)-TV--Joygasm!
The third in the revived series of the 90s, Batman Forever, is still a lot of fun. Tommy Lee Jones gives a rare comedic performance as Two-Face, and Jim Carrey does his standard repertoire of voices and facial mugging. The villains overshadow Val Kilmer as Batman, who was then at the height of his stardom. Twenty-one years later, only Jones still has a career.

July 25
49. Bite (2016)-On Demand--It's just a bug bite.
Similar to Cronenberg's The Fly in theme and ick factor, Bite is about a woman having a pre-wedding vcay in Costa Rica to sort out her anxiety about her imminent marriage (and bang a muy caliente bartender). She is bitten by a creature, and she slowly metamorphizes into an egg-laying monster.
50. Them! (1954)-Blu-Ray--Get the other antennae!
A 1950s classic, easily one of the best giant critter films of the 1950s. It's a tribute to the FX team that 60+ years later, the giant ants still look terrifyingly real.
51. Genesis II. (1973)-DVD--Looks like humanity's finally growing up
A TV-movie that was a failed Gene Roddenberry pilot, Genesis II reworks the Star Trek template by having a 20th-century scientist revived from cold sleep by a humanist collective federation, this time fighting evil slave-owner mutants.

July 27
52. Wayward Pines (2016)-TV--"Walcott Prep" S2E9/ "Bedtime Story" S2E10

July 30
53. The Lost World (1960).Viooz--We know them as long-dead creatures of the Jurassic age. In other words, live dinosaurs!
A rousing adventure story in which contemporary scientists (for 1960) discover dinosaurs on a South American plateau, marred by cheesy special effects using lizards with fake fins attached to their backs, due to Irwin Allen's penchant for filming on the cheap. I would have loved to see what Ray Harryhausen would have come up with.
54. The Jetsons (1963)-TV--"The Space Car" S1E4/ "Jett Screamer" S1E2/ "Uniblab' S1E10/ "Miss Solar System" S1E20
55. Doomwatch (1972).Viooz--The people here have been eating the fish!
I never saw the BBC series this film is based on, but the movie is pretty good. It's about a British government office inspecting mutations on a remote island.
55. The Golden Child (1986)-DVD--My sweet brother Numpsie!
Ah, the 80s, back when Eddie Murphy movies weren't cynical cash grabs. I really like this one, and I'm surprised it was Murphy's first bomb.
56. Terminator 2 (1991)-DVD--Hasta la vista, baby!
Absolutely a perfect action film, playing to Schwarzenegger's (ahem) strengths, with pioneering FX and a taut screenplay and direction.
57. Predator (1987)-DVD--I ain't got time to bleed!
Who knew this flick would produce two future governors?
58. Ant-Man (2015)-TV--Sorry I'm late, I was saving the world. You know how it is.
Paul Rudd is so smooth in every film he's in. For me, Ant-Man is top shelf Marvel.

July 31
59. Captive Wild Woman (1943)-TV--Well, I'll feed 'em, but you gotta explain meatless Tuesdays to 'em.
Acquanetta gets special billing, but all she does in this movie is stare.
60. Bait (2012)-TV--sharks are only curious about one thing. It's trying to decide if we're food or not!
A completely cheesy movie from Australia about people stranded in a flooded grocery store after a tsunami, being picked off one by one by a great white shark. Even though this film is low-budget rubbish, I'd still like to catch it uncut because SyFy's censoring really bugs.
61. Sharknado 4 (2016)-TV--It's a nukenado!
Why did I watch this?
