Challenge Starts July 1st at 12am EST

Challenge ends August 1st at dawn

Rules

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.

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

Movies count as 1 entry each.

TV shows count according to length as they are aired on TV(including commercials):
  • 30 minute shows count as 1/4 an entry
  • 1 hour shows count as 1/2 an entry
  • 2 hour shows count as 1 entry
So you need 4, 30 minute shows for 1 entry or 2 60 minute shows or any combination that gets you to 1 entry. While X-Files has a runtime of around 43 minutes, on-air it's an hour show.

If it's short films that are 10 minutes or less, once you hit 23 minutes of watching them, you've reached one 30 minute show. This is based on the theory that the run time for a 30 minute show is between 22-24 minutes.

For mini series, do count each "day" that it aired (assuming that each day was a 2 hour block). For example, Dune: The Mini Series, would it be:

63. Dune: The Mini Series - Part I
64. Dune: The Mini Series - Part II
65. Dune: The Mini Seriies - Part III

When listing TV shows, keep them together for one entry.
Example:
65. Outer Limits:episode name / Futurama: episode name / Futurama: episode name
How do I list TV shows and other short stuff if I don't have enough for an entry?

At the bottom of your post/list, keep a Temp TV section. Add stuff there until you get enough for an entry.

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.

Show what days you watched whatever it was you watched

Example

July 1:
1. Alien
2. Aliens

July 2:
3. Aliens 3
How to win

I'm stealing the prize determination from the exploitation challenge. Names will be randomly selected from http://www.random.org/lists/ The top 6 people, one prize per person, get something.

There's 4 ways to get an entry:
  1. Participate by watching at least 1 item
  2. Watch 100 items
  3. Start the checklist
  4. Complete the checklist

Last year's discussion thread: http://forum.dvdtalk.com/dvd-talk/55...on-thread.html
Last year's list thread: http://forum.dvdtalk.com/dvd-talk/55...st-thread.html

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.

asianxcore's Summer Sci-Fi/Fantasy Challenge List


July 1st:

1. Ultraviolet (2006): I've always enjoyed this film. Goofy, but fun and stylish. Does loads better when it isn't dipping into melodramatics. Earns more points for having Vietnamese Vampire Clans.

2. Event Horizon (1997): Hellraiser in Space. Definitely follows the "Haunted House" formula of some Horror Films, but atmosphere, dread and selective gore make this film a ridiculous treat. Wish Paul W.S. Anderson continued to make films like this.

3. Cube (1997): Simple but menacing premise. Film would go on to influence many others that followed it and spawn some pretty awful sequels. Would probably be better off shorter than 90 minutes. Acting all around is solid minus the hilarity that was Maurice Dean Wint.

July 2nd:

4. Jason X (2001): Friday The 13th Series gets sprinkled with a little Sci-Fi Love. D-Grade fun, filled with robot nipples, cross dressing scientists, a David Cronenberg cameo and Jason Voorhees as Lord Zedd. More good times than you can shake a stick at!

5. The Running Man (1987): It's hard not to love the concept of this film or getting to see Classic Arnie. Pretty fun film. Though to be honest, I tried not to laugh at any of the Stalkers and failed. From Opera singing Dynamo, to the completely random Jim Brown appearance. The one-liners are complete gold.

July 3rd:


6. Total Recall (1990): I've never seen this film uncut, so this viewing being the first time, made it all that more interesting. Complete off-the-wall fun for it's (almost) 2 hour run time. FX work is solid. How creepy is Johnny Cab? Also who would I be if I didn't mention the mutant with 3 boobs?

July 5th


7. Contamination (1980):
Snoring Alien Eggs and Gory Chest Explosions can't save this flick. Everything interesting pretty much happens in the first 15 minutes and the last 15 minutes of the film. Makes the rest of it extremely tedious to sit though. Apparently everyone looks like they are on Maternity Leave before exploding.

# in red means it's a first time viewing. All titles viewed on DVD unless noted otherwise.

<table border="2"><tr><td>Thursday, July 1st

1 - Gojira (1954) - The original Japanese film is so different from the typical Godzilla monster movies we're used to; not a monster-on-the-loose film but more an anti-war/nuclear testing allegory. I wouldn't have appreciated it much as a kid, just the very few big guy action scenes, but love it now.

2 - Again with film historian commentary.
</tr></td></table>
<table border="2"><tr><td>Friday, July 2nd

3 - Godzilla, King of the Monsters (1956) - The American bastardization is still a fun film, the one I fell in love with as a kid, but I now view it as the much weaker of the two versions. The insertion of the Steve Martin scenes, while interesting to hear/think about technically, makes for a pretty silly experience overall. They deleted way too many good scenes as well, including most of the references to the atomic bombings of Japan.

4 - Again with film historian commentary.
</tr></td></table>
<table border="2"><tr><td>Saturday, July 3rd

5 - Gojira no gyakushû (1955) - First time viewing of the original Japanese version of the Gojira follow-up. I enjoyed it, but wasn't it convenient that Godzilla liked to just stand around in that box canyon?

6 - Gigantis the Fire Monster (1959) - US version adds a ton of narration, cuts a lot of the human elements, and loses a decent score for a bland non-fitting one; but adds dubbing by George Takei! Crap, now I want to watch all the Star Trek series.

7 - Again with film historian commentary.

8 - Kingu Kongu tai Gojira (1962) - Just as I was about to pop in my King Kong vs. Godzilla DVD, I had a horrible thought, which became a horrible realization after some googling. I only had the US version of the film. My goal is to watch the original versions, so I had to find it quickly. Discovered that there is no region 1 release, and possibly no legitimate release at all, so I resorted to means I usually don't delve into to get it.

</tr></td></table>
<table border="2"><tr><td>Sunday, July 4th

9 - Legion (2010) - Brought the amazing film Moon over to a friend's to watch via my brand new laptop with HDMI-out. Find that the crappy software won't allow me to view BDs via HDMI, crap! So she rents Legion over FIOS-on-demand. Pretty crappy, but at least I steered her away from Avatar.

10 - King Kong vs. Godzilla (1963) - Loved this as a kid, until the ending. No way King Kong comes even close to beating Godzilla. Seeing it now, the ending seems quite ambiguous to me, but wtf with King Kong's electricity absorbing powers?

10.5 - Supernatural, S1E1, Pilot (2005) - Weird, just noticed that the lead actress of Legion, Adrianne Palicki, was the girlfriend in this episode.

11 - Supernatural, S1E2, Wendigo (2005) - Some of my first strong television memories are of Kolchak, the Night Stalker. Love that show, hey wait, why aren't I watching it? Oh well, maybe next year. But Supernatural is starting off as a worthy successor.

11.5 - Supernatural, S1E3, Dead in the Water (2005) - Creepy kid in the water. I think I'm in love with Amy Acker.

12 - Supernatural, S1E4, Phantom Traveler (2005) - Saw most or all of this first season before, and remember really loving this show back when I first discovered it. Surprised I put off watching the rest of the series this long. Really looking forward to the rest of it, own seasons 1-4, looks like I need 5.

13 - Independence Day (1996) - Bit the bullet and decided to watch this because of the date. Not a particular favorite, many parts of it I downright hate, but I do enjoy it for the most part. Decided to make it as "new-to-me" as possible by opening up my $5 blu-ray of it, and watching it with a commentary and the technical trivia track. Too long to finish in one sitting, finished most of it on Monday.
</tr></td></table>
<table border="2"><tr><td>Monday, July 5th

14 - Mosura tai Gojira (1964) - First time seeing this original Japanese version. Sort of upset with myself finding that I apparently don't own the original Mothra. Wanted to watch it as it takes place before this film obviously. I could have sworn I owned it, but can't find that three film Toho pack anywhere. I'll likely order it and watch it later in the month.

14.5 - Supernatural, S1E5, Bloody Mary (2005) - I hate to admit this, but I am often still a little kid when it comes to fear. After watching this episode, a take on the don't-say-bloody-mary-three-times legend, I couldn't look into the mirror when I brushed my teeth that night.


</tr></td></table>
<table border="2"><tr><td>Tuesday, July 6th

15 - Supernatural, S1E6, Skin (2005) - Love the music in this show, lots of 70s - 90s rock, and very happy that they have apparently retained all the rights for the DVD releases. This will hopefully be my slowest day of the Challenge. While I'm not aiming for 100, my listed goals will put me at close to 90, and I'm way behind schedule already.

</tr></td></table>
<table border="2"><tr><td>Wednesday, July 7th

16 - Godzilla vs. the Thing (1964) - The US version this time. Interesting that the US distributer decided to be secretive about it and market it without the Mothra name. Only a few small changes between versions this time, unlike the first three films with fairly major differences.

17 - Godzilla vs. the Thing (1964) - Again with film historian commentary. While I know appreciate this film as perhaps the best of the series in overall filmmaking, I hate the fact that a frigging moth and caterpillars are shown as being able to beat Godzilla. They should have been lizard food in mere seconds.

17.5 - Supernatural, S1E7, Hook Man (2005) - Nothing too original in this one, but still a fun watch.

18 - Supernatural, S1E8, Bugs (2008) - Some weak CGI, but a decent enough episode otherwise. Very weak CGI though.

</tr></td></table>
<table border="2"><tr><td>Thursday, July 8th

18.5 - Supernatural, S1E9, Home (2005) - Love the pop culture references throughout the series. Dean had a great line in this one, something like: "We're all good, (episode's female psychic) got her Zelda Rubinstein on."

19 - Supernatural, S1E10, Asylum (2005) - Another solid episode. Yes, for the entire series the acting is slightly bland, and the writing a bit deriative, but this show really clicks with me.

19.5 - Supernatural, S1E11, Scarecrow (2006) - Creepy monster. Nice Jeepers Creepers feel.

20 - Supernatural, S1E12, Faith (2006) - Wasn't there an X-Files episode just like this? Either way, great episode, loved the Reaper.
</tr></td></table>
<table border="2"><tr><td>Friday, July 9th

20.5 - Supernatural, S1E13, Route 666 (2006) - About time Dean got some of the loving.

21 - Supernatural, S1E14, Nightmare (2006) - Not sure how much I like them giving Sam powers like that. Seems like it will turn into an easy out for the writers. Hopefully they won't abuse it.

21.5 - Supernatural, S1E15, The Benders (2005) - The first non-monster episode. Well, they were monsters, so, the first all-human episode. Ok, maybe you could call them less than human.....

22.5 - Planet of the Dinosaurs (1978) - Wow, this film was definitely right for the Rifftrax treatment. Looking forward to viewing that, and regretting that I watched it "naked" first.

23 - Supernatural, S1E16, Shadow (2006) - I thought I watched the entire first season years ago, but these last couple episodes aren't looking familiar.

23.5 - Supernatural, S1E17, Hell House (2006) - Nice premise and homages, but a bit weak overall.

24.5 - Planet of the Dinosaurs (1978) - Again with Rifftrax. I still need to listen to a few more before I make up my mind, but I'm not enjoying the rifftax (es?) as much as the original MST3Ks. I think I just miss the robots.

25.5 - Cinematic Titanic: The Oozing Skull (2007) - Nice riff on the 1972 travesty, Brain of Blood.

26.5 - Mystery Science Theater 3000, Night of the Blood Beast (1996) - 1958 film - This was very cool of Shout! They offer the show two ways, as presented on Thanksgiving 1995, with the live crew segements, and the regular version. guess I'll have to watch it both ways.

27.5 - Mystery Science Theater 3000 - The Corpse Vanishes (1989) - The 1942 film is a guilty pleasure for me, enjoy all aspects of it actually. Cheesy fun, an interesting plot even if poorly executed, and Bela.

28.5 - Mystery Science Theater 3000 - Warrior of the Lost World (1993) - This 1983 film reeks badly.

29.5 - Mystery Science Theater 3000 - Santa Claus (1993) - I'm a Christmas junkie, but don't think I'll ever want to watch this 1959 film again without the MST3K enhancement.

30.5 - Naked Lunch (1991) - Not sure what I just watched, but I had fun doing it.

<table border="2"><tr><td>Wednesday, July 14th

31.5 - Sora no daikaijû Radon (1956) - Known primarily as Rodan, this was my first viewing of the original Japanese version. Love the tension and uncertainty building up to the reveals.

32.5 - Rodan! The Flying Monster (1957) - Not a huge fan of Rodan as a monster, but I like the film. The "human parts" are well done for a kaiju film.

33 - Supernatural, S1E18, Something Wicked (2006) - I guess this is normal for all television series, but I like how they are slowly filling in some of the backstory on the characters.

33.5 - Supernatural, S1E19, Provence (2006) - Ok, this makes like five episodes in a row that seem brand new to me, so I guess I never finished season one back when it was being aired. Red numbering it is.

34 - Supernatural, S1E20, Dead Man's Blood (2006) - Vampires! Finally! Never heard that trick about dead man's blood. Now I'm thinking of Boston Brand....

34.5 - Supernatural, S1E21, Salvation (2006) - The Winchester family is going to run out of friends.
</tr></td></table>
<table border="2"><tr><td>Thursday, July 15th

35 - Supernatural, S1E22, Devil's Trap (2006) - Another cliffhanger, but I guess one season is a bit too short to conclude the major storyline. Wonder if they planned it out that close to a full conclusion when they were unsure of a season 2, making it easy to finish things up if it had been cancelled?

36 - Missle to the Moon (1958) - Wow, a plot that could have been decent, but pretty poor execution. I know they weren't working with much of a budget, but those "rock creatures" are ridiculously bad.

37 - Missle to the Moon (1958) - Again with rifftrax. Not quite sure which version was funnier.

38 - Mothra (1961) - First time viewing of the original Japanese version. Can't find my DVD, but more and more sure that I own it, so I found it online. Does that make me a bad person? Wasn't a Mothra fan at all as a kid, but viewing her films now I see them as quite well-made.

<table border="2"><tr><td>Saturday, July 17th

39 - San daikaijû: Chikyû saidai no kessen (1964) - First time viewing the original Japanese version of Ghidorah, the Three-Headed Monster. As always, a very nice DVD release by Classic Media. I wish they were able to produce versions of all the films, that would make my year if I ever heard that news.
</tr></td></table>
<table border="2"><tr><td>Sunday, July 18th

40 - Ghidorah, the Three-Headed Monster (1965) - Now the US version. This is one of my favorite Godzilla films, definitely was when I was a kid, and likely was one of the ones I saw most often as a kid. When I remember my childhood viewings of Godzilla films, I remember these "lots of monsters" films more than the ones with only one or two monsters. Great combination of suit acting and wire work on Ghidorah.

41 - Ghidrah, the Three-Headed Monster (1965) - Again with film historian commentary.
</tr></td></table>
<table border="2"><tr><td>Monday, July 19th

42 - Kaijû daisenso (1965) - Original Japanese version. Enjoy this film very much, nice combination of multi-monster action and decent human storylines.

43 - Monster Zero (1970) - I wonder why the US release was delayed almost 5 years. After viewing research of the film led me to sad story of the life of Nick Adams.

44 - Invasion of Astro-Monster (1970) - This title has apparently become the most popular one. This viewing was my favorite, as it was with commentary by DVDTalk's very own Stuart Galbraith IV! Great commentary, as are his reviews here.
</tr></td></table>
<table border="2"><tr><td>Tuesday, July 20th

45 - Godzilla Versus the Sea Monster (1966) - Way too much human stuff and not nearly enough monster action in this one. Not even sure if I ever saw this one before, but I probably did as a kid.

46 - Son of Godzilla (1967) - Fairly decent story and execution, but I was never a big fan of Minilla.
</tr></td></table>
<table border="2"><tr><td>Wednesday, July 21st

47 - Destroy All Monsters (1968) - This was my favorite as a kid, and may still be. Would love to see a better DVD release of this one.

48 - Inception (2010) - Best film of the year so far. This is right in my breadbox, a sci-fi thriller that makes you think.

48 - Gojira-Minira-Gabara: Oru kaijû daishingeki (1969) - Japanese version isn't too different from the US. Two big negatives are that it was completely aimed at a children's audience for the first time, and it also used lots of stock footage from the earlier films. Despite these flaws, I enjoy it, perhaps because I still have the mind of a child.

49 - Godzilla's Revenge (1971) - US title doesn't make much sense, I don't see much revenge going on here.

50 - All Monsters Attack (1971) - Again with film historian commentary. Weird how all these films seem to have so many darn titles. Yet another fantastic DVD release from Classic Media.

50.25 - Æon Flux pilot (1991) - Bought this set years ago, for an exclusive at Circuit City iirc, and am finally going to watch it all. Watched this first episode twice, once with creator commentary. Cool that the main character besides Æon is named Trevor.

50.50 - Æon Flux season 2 (1992) - Five shorts comprise the so-called second season of Æon Flux, the pilot being all of season one. Love these things! So bizarre, and awesome endings!

50.75 - Æon Flux season 2 (1992) - Again with creator commentary.

51 - Æon Flux, S3E1, Utopia or Deuteranopia? (1995) - First full length episode.

52 - Godzilla vs. the Smog Monster (1971) - Trippy. It's like they gave the reigns of the franchise to a bunch of coked-up hippies. It's fun I guess, and enjoyed by me for being one of my only drive-in theater memories.

53 - The Star Wars Holiday Special (1978) - Oh.my.God.

54 - The Star Wars Holiday Special (1978) - Again with Rifftrax. Nice double feature here I guess. Take two franchises, and totally F with them.

55/56 - Neverwhere (1996) - Really enjoyed this one, but surprised that the production values seemed so low. Like all of Gaiman's works that I have tried, film and comic books, but must shamefully admit that his novels have been gathering dust in my to-read pile for up to 20 years now. I apparently gave up reading when DVDs were invented. Sadly, that is close to true.

57 - Event Horizon (1997) - Love this film. Great blend of sci-fi and horror, fantastic performances especially by Sam Neil, nice ending.

58 - The Man Who Fell to Earth (1976) - Trying to open up a few of my blu-rays for these Challenges, as for some reason they tend to stay in my unwatched piles. Started this early this morning, more later when I finish, but it looks very promising so far.

59 - Godzilla vs. Gigan (1972) - The inclusion of a manga artist as a lead character made me think of Chasing Amy, one of my favorite films. Surprised at how bloody these Japanese versions are compared to the edited US versions I'm used to.
</tr></td></table>
<table border="2"><tr><td>Sunday, July 25th

60 - Godzilla vs. Megalon (1973) - This is sort of my favorite film of the series, but mainly for nostalgic reasons. This is perhaps the only Godzilla film that I have a full memory of seeing in the theater. My family was on vacation in Akron Ohio, and my cousins, sister, and I convinced our parents to take us to the theater to see it. About halfway through, a projector or power failure messed things up, and they ended up restarting the film. At the end, as everyone was about to file out of the theater, an employee told us that they had messed up again, and didn't play a part of the film. They let us all stay for yet another viewing, so we basically saw the film two and a half times back to back to back. I'm sure our parents were pissed, but we kids loved it, and Jet Jaguar and Megalon have always been favorites and what I picture when someone mentions Godzilla. I was a huge Ultraman fan before this happened, so that may also explain my love for this film.

61 - Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla (1974) - Nice variety of monsters here. We have good old Godzilla of course, bad guy Godzilla who turns out to be Mechagodzilla, trusty old sidekick Anguirus, and cool new King Caesar.
</tr></td></table>
<table border="2"><tr><td>Monday, July 26th

62 - Terror of Mechagodzilla (1975) - My first time seeing the original Japanese version. Once again, I'm surprised by all the blood edited out for the US version, and impressed by the Classic Media DVD release.

63 - Terror of Mechagodzilla (1975) - The US version of the film. Plot here was way too similar to others in the series. Aliens capturing our human heroes, who manage to escape their ropes and save the day.

64 - Terror of Mechagodzilla (1975) - Again with expert commentary.
</tr></td></table>
<table border="2"><tr><td>Tuesday, July 27th

65 - Mystery Science Theater 3000, Godzilla vs. Megalon (1991) - My favorite television series combined with my favorite film of my favorite franchise. If my house was burning down and I could only grab one DVD, it might be this set.

66 - Godzilla 1985: The Legend Is Reborn (1984) - How in the world is there no region 1 DVD release of this? I searched online and ending up with a probable boot, but will buy a legitimate region 1 release if it ever gets done. Very interesting how they once again made significant changes for the US version, again with Raymond Burr as sort of a narrator and reporter Steve Martin. He was never referred to as Steve in the film, reportedly so as to avoid confusion with the comedian.

<table border="2"><tr><td>Wednesday, July 28th

67 - Gojira vs Biorante (1989) - I think they were eating shrooms before they wrote this script, but it is quite interesting, with some new concepts brought to the table. And again, released in 8 different countries, but not the US.
</tr></td></table>
<table border="2"><tr><td>Thursday, July 29th

n/a - La lune à un mètre (1898) - I only watched this for checklist purposes, but wow, Georges Méliès was a genius. I keep putting off buying a boxset of his films, I need to get on that.

n/a - Le voyage dans la lune (1902) - Ibid.

n/a - Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (1912) - More checklist fodder. I'm thinking of collecting all of the various film versions of the Jekyll and Hyde story. I think there are at least 50 so far. Watched these three online at work, just to fill in a few more things on the checklist. But looking at the number of holes I have in it, finishing it will be impossible.

68 - Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah (1991) - Nearly had to abort my Challenge/Godzilla goal today. I ordered this DVD over a week ago, but it still hasn't arrived. This film wasn't available on Netflix streaming, and I couldn't find any working torrents. Luckily, I found it being hosted at crackle.com, some ad supported video streaming site that looks legit, but at this point I don't really care. Interesting, didn't realize we had a time travel Godzilla film. Time travel stuff is one of my guilty pleasures, so I was destined to love this one.

69 - Gojira vs. Mosura (1992) - Really enjoyed this one. Mainly old ideas, but a few new twists, and Battra was a cool monster.

70 - Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla II (1993) - Lots of big monster variety and fights. But seriously, second brains? And how often are we going to see one monster sacrificing itself for the greater good? It's getting old, and I know there is more of it in the later films.

71 - Godzilla vs. Space Godzilla (1994) -

72 - Godzilla vs. Destoroyah (1995) -

73 - The Terminator (1984) - Ugh, maybe I'll go for the checklist after all. I'm off work for a few days, and can probably stay awake most of the next 48 hours and finish it off. One of my favorite films, love Linda Hamilton in this.

74 - Parasite (1982) - Checklist fodder, but I actually sort of like this. Demi Moore's first starring role btw.

n/a - At 3:25 (1925) - For the decade checklist only, but very nice little French film.

75 - Aerograd (1935) - Not very sci-fi-ish, but they list it that way for some reason. Mainly a Russian propaganda film.

76 - Beetlejuice (1988) - Almost chose a different Tim Burton film, but I've been meaning to re-watch this one anyway. An ex looks just like a young Geena Davis, so these early films of hers get me all hot and bothered.

77 - Robocop (1987) - Perhaps my most viewed Criterion disc.

78 - Godzilla (1998) - Even if you ignore the name and just think of this as a popcorn monster movie, it still sucks.

Re: Summer Sci-Fi/Fantasy Challenge 10 - List Thread
 
(*) first time viewing

July 1
1. Bluebeard (09, Catherine Breillat)*--Dark fairy tale with charming performances by the two little girls telling the story of Bluebeard--3/5
July 2
2. Doctor Who: Resurrection of the Daleks 1/2/3/4--I think Turlough is my least favorite companion ever--4/5
July 3
3. Koi... Mil Gaya (03, Rakesh Roshan)*--E.T. goes to India. Much music, dancing and hijinks ensue--3/5
4. The Crazies (09, Breck Eisner)*--Okay remake--3/5
5. Termination Point (07, Jason Bourque)*--Entertaining nonsense involving government agents, time travel and Jason Priestley trying to save a planeload of passengers trapped in a wormhole--3/5
July 9
6. AvH: Alien vs. Hunter (07, Scott Harper)*--William Katt (sans magic jammies, which really could have helped this mess) heads a no-star cast in another Asylum ripoff. Good for a couple of laughs, but mostly just really bad--2/5
7. Freaky Faron (06, John William Ross)*--Interesting story of a crazy girl who may not be as crazy as everyone thinks--3/5
July 10
8. Re-Generation (09, Anais Granofsky)*--Talky futuristic drama about limb transplanting--3/5
9. Five Million Years to Earth (68, Roy Ward Baker)*--Been looking forward to seeing this for a while and it didn't dissapoint. The end reminded me a lot of the end of "Lifeforce"--4/5
10. Dreamchild (85, Gavin Millar)--Coral Browne gives a great performance as Alice Hargreaves in this perfect blend of drama and fantasy. Amazing (and creepy) versions of the Wonderland characters by the Jim Henson Creature Shop. One of my favorite films--5/5
11. Alice in Wonderland (33, Norman McLeod)*--Strange version of the classic tale--3/5
July 11
12. The Puppet Masters (94, Stuart Orme)*--Donald Sutherland can't seem to get away from those pesky body-snatching aliens--4/5
13. Invaders from Mars (53, William Cameron Menzies)*--Fun from the '50s. It was a nice change that the hero didn't have to spend the entire movie convincing others he was telling the truth--3/5
14. Doctor Who: The Lodger*--I like Matt Smith's Doctor, but this series has been a bit of a disappointment for me. Still, the last couple episodes have been better, and the previews for the finale look promising--4/5 / Torchwood: Children of Earth: Day One--"Back." Still gives me chills. This miniseries is probably the best thing I watched last year, and it's just as great the second time--5/5
July 12
15. Torchwood: Children of Earth: Day Two/Day Three
July 13
16. Torchwood: Children of Earth: Day Four/Day Five
17. The Book of Eli (10, The Hughes Brothers)*--Denzel Washington walks the earth. With Gary Oldman as Mickey Rourke--4/5
July 14
18. Eyeborgs (08, Richard Clabaugh)*--Thanks to the DVDTalk reviews I decided to check this out, and it may be my favorite new movie of the challenge. Very "RoboCop"-y and very entertaining--4/5
July 15
19. Doctor Who: The War Machines 1/2/3/4*--These old episodes are so stagebound and talky compared to the new series, but still enjoyable--3/5
20. Sleep Dealer (08, Alex Rivera)*--Interesting ideas, although I found it a bit hard to follow. Maybe I was just tired--3/5
July 16
21. The Land That Time Forgot (09, C. Thomas Howell)*--Not-bad Asylum flick. For added fun, take a shot each time our hero takes off and puts his hat back on--3/5
July 17
22. Doctor Who: The Time Warrior 1/2/3/4*--The Sontarans still look cool after all these years. Plus Sarah Jane, my first and favorite companion--4/5
23. Deep Rising (98, Stephen Sommers)*--Do maiden voyages ever not end in disaster? "Aliens" on a boat, with a cool creature, some creative deaths, and a good sense of humor--4/5
24. The Saragossa Manuscript (65, Wojciech Has)*--"I no longer follow," says one of the characters toward the end of this 3-hour Polish drama. A bit of a chore to get through, with stories within stories within stories within stories...--3/5
July 18
25. Alien Apocalypse (05, Josh Becker)*--This crappy Sci-Fi Channel movie is the new front-runner for worst movie of the challenge--2/5
26. Doctor Who: The Pandorica Opens* / The Troop: The Good, the Bad and the Ickie Doll*--Fun Nick show, kinda "Buffy"-lite / The Troop: Lost in Translation*
July 19
27. MST3K: Laserblast*--Apparently Leonard Maltin gave "Laserblast" two-and-a-half stars--4/5
28. H.G. Wells' War of the Worlds (05, David Michael Latt)*--The Asylum and C. Thomas Howell again in another not-too-bad modern remake. Up next, the sequel--3/5
July 20
29. War of the Worlds 2: The Next Wave (08, C. Thomas Howell)*--Shouldn't have bothered--2/5
July 21
30. Sayonara Jupiter (83, Koji Hashimoto)*--Goofy blend of amateurish acting, old-school special effects, musical interludes, space lovemaking, tons of technobabble, and a dolphin named Jupiter, whose song is a hilarious highlight--3/5
July 22
31. Donnie Darko: The Director's Cut (with Richard Kelly/Kevin Smith commentary) (04, Richard Kelly)*--I didn't really like this cut the first time I saw it, but watching it now with the commentary, I get more of what Kelly was trying to do. Not sure if I like the Donnie-as-superhero idea though--5/5
32. War of the Planets (65, Anthony Dawson)*--Silly Italian sci-fi--2/5
July 23
33. Galaxy of Terror (81, Bruce D. Clark)*--Okay monster movie, with lots of wandering around dark caves and getting killed--3/5
34. Secret of the Andes (98, Alejandro Azzano)*--What I thought was going to be an Indy-ripoff turned out to be a fantasy-drama about magic and belief, starring a young Camilla Belle--3/5
July 24
35. The Uninvited (44, Lewis Allen)*--Not really scary, but still an enjoyable ghost story--4/5
36. Donnie Darko: The Director's Cut (04, Richard Kelly)--I'm starting to like this version more, but I still prefer the more ambiguous original cut--5/5
37. Paheli (05, Amol Palekar)*--Husband goes away; imposter ghost takes his place in this Bollywood romance. Cool puppets-as-Greek-chorus--3/5
38. The Wraith (86, Mike Marvin)--Haven't seen this since it was in theaters. Still a lot of fun, with a great bad-80s-songs soundtrack--4/5
July 25
39. One Million Years B.C. (66, Don Chaffey)*--Good Harryhausen effects, an interesting score, an epic ending, and lots of grunting and fighting--3/5
40. When Dinosaurs Ruled the Earth (70, Val Guest)*--More dinosaurs, more cave people, more Mario Nascimbene music, and a more interesting story--4/5
41. The Manster (62, George Breakstone & Kenneth G. Crane)*--Scientist turns man into monster. Not bad--3/5
July 26
42. The Spiderwick Chronicles (08, Mark Waters)--Enjoyable family fantasy with a good cast--4/5
43. The Killer Shrews (59, Ray Kellogg)*--Dogs with rugs on as the shrews, and a final act that has to be seen to be believed--3/5
July 27
44. Hot Tub Time Machine (10, Steve Pink)*--Some good laughs, John Cusack, Crispin Glover, and a nice shout-out to "Better Off Dead"--4/5
July 28
45. Crack in the World (65, Andrew Marton)*--"No one has ever observed the birth of a moon, Macefield." Action, melodrama, and lots of disaster stock footage--4/5
July 29
46. Night of Death! (80, Raphael Delpard)*--Bits of dark humor in this French fantasy about an old folk's home with a horrible secret--3/5
July 30
47. Independence Day (96, Roland Emmerich)--I can't believe this film is almost 15 years old. And just as much fun as the first time I saw it--4/5
48. Gemini (99, Shinya Tsukamoto)*--Stylish and bizarre. Now if someone can explain what the hell was going on--3/5
July 31
49. Looney Tunes: Back in Action (03, Joe Dante)--More movie and tv in-jokes than plot, which is why I think I like it so much. The Area 52 sequence is pure film-geek heaven--4/5
50. Encounter of the Spooky Kind (80, Sammo Hung Kam-Bo)*--Ghost-fu silliness--3/5

Doctor Who: The Big Bang*

She refuses to leave the jail with her mother. Jason continues to blackmail Elizabeth and tells her she should let her daughter go. Victoria tries to comfort Elizabeth. Elizabeth refuses. Finally, Elizabeth confides with Victoria of the secret she's been carrying - that she murdered her husband 18 years ago.

1. Alien (1979) - ***** (DVD - 12:00 am)
Comments : I'm going to just use the same comments from the Horror Challenge last year where I used this excellent movie to kick off the month. "I have seen this movie more times than I can remember and I always find something new to it. A deep space mining crew is awakened from hypersleep to investigate a strange signal from a distant planet. They bring back an unwanted creature that destroys the crew one by one. This is a true classic that never fails to impress or entertain. Hard to believe that it is now 31 years old! Couldn't think of a better movie to start this challenge!"

2. Aliens (Special Edition) (1986) - ***** (DVD - 2:00 am)
Comments : A rare case when a sequel actually measures up to the original. After 57 years in suspended hypersleep, Ellen Ripley returns to the planet where the alien was first encountered. Only this time, she's part of a rescue crew of marines investigating the lack of communication with the colonists that have settled the planet. This one is hard to beat on every level and really is a roller coaster ride of a movie! Sigourney Weaver is excellent as are the effects and story. A classic that never gets old for me.

3. Alien<sup>3</sup> (Special Edition) (1992) - **** (DVD - 1:15 pm)
Comments : Ripley crash lands on a prison planet with an alien on board her escape vehicle. As the creature grows and begins dispatching the prisoners, Ripley begins to understand a more horrifying connection with the alien. Underappreciated upon original release, this one still has a terrific performance by Sigourney Weaver and great atmosphere. Although it is flawed, I still enjoy it for the most part. The Special Edition is a definite improvement but effects are not up to the first two films.

4. Alien Resurrection (Special Edition) (1997) - *** (DVD - 3:45 pm)
Comments : 200 years later, Ellen Ripley is cloned to harvest the alien embryo inside. When the aliens prove too smart for their captors, a small group of smugglers have to find a way to escape an infested ship as well as deal with a Ripley that may not have their best interests in mind. This movie had potential but unfortunately is another step down from the others. Some over-the-top acting and a few bad one liners don't help. Has its moments, both good and bad. I can still get into it but had hoped for a bit more. Again, Weaver does her best and the effects are great.

5. Dark Shadows Collection 2 (1967) - **** (DVD - various times)
Episode 251 : Willy prevents Barnabas from killing Maggie temporarily. Conflicted, Barnabas locks Maggie into a room in the basement with an ultimatum that he will kill her only when she begs to be his bride after suffering more than any human ever has before. Barnabas is intrigued by Victoria when he learns that she was an orphan and has a desire to learn more of her family history.
Episode 252 : Carolyn presses Elizabeth about her marriage plans to Jason. After a heated exchange, she decides to give her mother the same treatment by running around with a rough crowd and coming home drunk. With friends and family worried, Carolyn rebels and continues to provoke Elizabeth.
Episode 253 : Maggie begs Barnabas to find a way to deliver her ring to her father so that he will know that she is ok. When he refuses, she turns to Willy instead without letting him know of her intentions. Maggie's plan to use Willy in order to get her ring public, proving she is alive, backfires when David finds the rings and ends up returnng it to Barnabas. Barnabas confronts Maggie and lets her know that her plan has failed.
Episode 254 : Elizabeth turns to Victoria for help in dealing with Carolyn, only to be questioned as to the motives of Jason and the upcoming marriage. Meanwhile, Carolyn confronts Joe in the bar and he tries his best to break her from the crowd and man she is involved with. Later, Jason pressures Elizabeth into accepting a wedding date. Carolyn, upset with the news, announces that she is also to wed on that date with bad boy Buzz.

*. A Trip to the Moon (1902) - *** (Online - various times) 1st Time Viewing
Comments : Watched this only to fulfil the checklist requirement. Interesting first science fiction film - not counting as a seperate entry due to the short length of the film.

6. Buck Rogers in the 25th Century (1979) - *** (DVD - 6:30 pm)
Episode 1.1: Awakening Pt. I Episode 1.2: Awakening Pt. II
Comments : Astronaut Buck Rogers awakes from suspended animation and returns to Earth 500 years in the future. Pilot for television series was released theatrically and I remember seeing it a few times in the theater. Cheesy but fun.

7. Star Wars - Episode I: The Phantom Menace (1999) - *** (DVD - 8:15 pm)
Comments : A mysterious Sith lord manipulates events to secure his rise to power in the Senate. The trailer for this prequel promised a much different movie than what was delivered. Unfortunately, each time I watch it I can't help but think of what could have been. The most interesting character, Darth Maul, is completely wasted in what should have been a much larger part in the prequel trilogy. Say what you want about CGI creation Jar Jar Binks (and I would probably agree), but he does give a much better performance than little Jake Lloyd as the boy who would be Vader. My least favorite of all the entries.

8. Star Wars - Episode II: Attack of the Clones (2002) - **** (DVD - 10:45 pm)
Comments : Anakin must protect Senator Amidala while Obi Wan tries to uncover the mystery of the creation of a clone army. Effects are great but this one really just feels like filler until we get to the good stuff. Some unintentionally funny dialogue. Very little time given to the actual clone war but what little there is plays well enough.

Friday - July 2

9. Dark Shadows Collection 2 (1967) - **** (DVD - various times)
Episode 255 : Barnabas brings Maggie to Josette's room and tests her to see if she has accepted her identity, only to see that she still resists. Sam, her father, arrives at the door to deliver the painting and Barnabas allows Maggie to overhear their conversation. Joe rushes in to tell Sam that a body believed to be Maggie has washed up on the beach and that there is little hope that it is not her. Maggie, full of despair in her cell, is surprised to see a little girl singing outside her cell door.
Episode 256 : Maggie's attempts to gain the attention of the little girl are useless. When Willy comes to bring food, she is also unsuccessful in getting him to try to escape with her. David encounters the little girl who tells him her name is Sarah and that she cannot find her friends anymore. Sarah returns to Maggie's cell and tells Maggie to not let her big brother know she is down in the basement before leaving.
Episode 257 : Elizabeth dismissies Carolyn's fiance, causing her to confront her mother again about the wedding plans and Carolyn's full intention to marry Buzz as well. Elizabeth asks if Carolyn will stop this behavior if she does not go through with the marriage with Jason and Carolyn tells her to try her. Jason attempts to handle the situation by confronting Buzz in the bar and offering money to buy him away from Carolyn, telling Buzz that he is being used and manipulated. Buzz already knows this and tells Carolyn what Jason has offered, laughing at the attempt to break them up.
Episode 258 : Maggie sits crying in her cell until Sarah mysteriously appears in the room. Although she won't tell Maggie exactly how she got there, she does promise to take her with her only to vanish when Maggie turns around. Later, Barnabas begins to think that Maggie is slipping into hysteria when she insists that she has a friend that visits her. He decides that her mind is too far gone and will have to kill her rather than have her commit to his plan. Willy, fearing for Maggie's life, tries to make Maggie realize that the little girl is not real. Maggie begins to doubt her own sanity until she finds Sarah's doll on the floor of her cell.

10. Buck Rogers in the 25th Century (1979) - *** (DVD - 4:45 pm)
Episode 1.3: Planet of the Slave Girls Pt. I Episode 1.4: Planet of the Slave Girls Pt. II 1st Time Viewing
Comments : A strange illness is affecting Earth's Defense Squadron. I don't remember the series although I know I saw some episodes. This was not bad and had some well-known (for the time) guest stars. Costumes, or lack thereof, are always a highlight and Jack Palance's overacting makes for a good time. Original Buck Rogers star Buster Crabbe has a supporting role.
