            Ash Ketchum’s 3rd Annual Sci-Fi/Fantasy Challenge


            * - First-time viewings

            Mon. July 1, 2013
            1. CRIMSON WOLF (1994/Japan, 60 min., color, anime fantasy thriller/OAV) DVD (dubbed in English) Dir.: Shoichi Masuo.
            When the tomb of Genghis Khan is violated by Japanese archaeologists, dire prophecies are bandied about and three warriors with wolf-shaped scars must be located and destroyed in order for global disaster to be averted. Lots of sex, nudity and gory bloodshed, but the plot is too convoluted and the characters too dull for this to be as entertaining as it ought to be. Set in China and Japan, with Chairman Mao as one of the evil incarnations confronting the heroes at the end.


            Tues. July 2, 2013
            2. *MASKED RIDER THE FIRST (2005/Japan, 90 min., color, sci-fi superhero adventure/Toei) DVD (in Japanese with English subs.)
            Dir.: Takao Nagaishi. Star: Masaya Kikawada.
            Movie spin-off (and reboot) of the long-running Kamen Rider TV series, which began in 1971. In this one, two Kamen Rider cyborgs fight over a girl and then turn against Shocker, the evil organization that created them. It’s too ponderous and takes itself way too seriously to be the kind of fun that earlier Kamen Rider productions were.


            Wed. July 3, 2013
            3. SOL BIANCA (1990/Japan, 55 min., color, anime sci-fi adventure/OAV) VHS (in Japanese with English subs.)
            Dir.: Katsuhito Akiyama.
            A crew of female space pirates barges in on a planetary conflict in search of treasure. Beautifully animated and designed, but the geeky emphasis on tech details rather than story construction makes it incomprehensible at times. From the director of two much better female sci-fi action series, “Bubblegum Crisis” and “Gall Force.”


            4. Sakura Wars (2000/Japan, 25 min., color, anime sci-fi historical thriller/TV series) DVD (in Japanese with English subs.)
            Dir.: Ryutaro Nakamura.
            #1: Sakura Arrives at the Capital
            In 1920s Tokyo, Sakura is eager to do battle with the Black Sanctum Council, but is assigned to the Imperial Flower theatrical troupe instead.

            Thurs. July 4, 2013
            5. *SOHRYUDEN: LEGEND OF THE DRAGON KINGS (1991/Japan, 92 min., color, anime fantasy thriller/OAV) VHS (in Japanese with English subs.) Dir.: Norio Kashima.
            Vol. 3: “The Graceful Agent” / “Skyscrapers and the Red Dragon”
            Spectacular fantasy thriller in which the four super-powered Dragon Brothers take on Japan’s corrupt power elite (and their American counterparts) in contemporary Tokyo. Cyborg dogs terrorize a baseball stadium during an All-Star game in one memorable sequence. A zeppelin crashes into a twin-towered skyscraper in another.


            6. *IRIA: ZEIRAM THE ANIMATION, Vol. 1 (1994/Japan, 55 min., color, anime sci-fi adventure/OAV) DVD (in Japanese with English subs.) Dir.: Tetsuro Amino.
            #1: Pitch Black
            #2: Rampage
            Space bounty hunters fight a powerful monster in this beautifully designed and animated space adventure, which was designed as a prequel to two “Zeiram” live-action sci-fi movies. I didn’t always understand what was going on, though.


            7. *8 KAMEN RIDERS VS. GALAXY KING (1980/Japan, 45 min., color, sci-fi superhero movie/Toei) VHS (in Japanese, no subs.) Dir.: Shotaro Ishinomori.
            Garish period fashions, outlandish monsters, lots of action. Standard tokusatsu movie spin-off.


            8-10. *ARMORED TROOPER VOTOMS (1983/Japan, color, anime sci-fi TV series) DVD (in Japanese with English subs.)
            Dir.: Ryosuke Takahashi.
            #14: Assemble EX-10
            #15: Doubts
            #16: Clean Sweep
            Chirico signs on as a mercenary fighting guerrillas in a tropical Amazon-like region and believes he’s found his lost love—working for the enemy! Lots of combat action as the series switches to a new setting. (I watched the first 13 eps. for last year’s animation challenge.)


            July 5, 2013
            11-12. *ARMORED TROOPER VOTOMS (1983/Japan, color, anime sci-fi TV series)
            DVD (in Japanese with English subs.) Dir.: Ryosuke Takahashi.
            #17: Reunion
            #18: Turnabout
            Chirico finds his lost love while the Veela guerrillas ramp up their attack, just as the government gets a new ally—the army Chirico deserted from!

            13. *SOHRYUDEN: LEGEND OF THE DRAGON KINGS (1991/Japan, 92 min., color, anime fantasy thriller/OAV) VHS (in Japanese with English subs.) Dir.: Norio Kashima.
            Vol. 4: “Revenge of the Four Brothers” / “Rampage of the Iron Dragon”
            One brother gets abducted while the other three go looking for him. At one point the JSDF and the Metropolitan Police confront each other, while the brothers commandeer a tank and continue their search. Wildly unpredictable, with many bizarre touches.

            July 6, 2013
            14, *Pokémon Black and White: Adventures in Unova (2013/Japan, color, half-hour anime fantasy adventure) Seen on Cartoon Network-HD. Dubbed in English.
            “Ash and N: A Clash of Ideals!” (July 6, 2013)

            15-16. *ARMORED TROOPER VOTOMS (1983/Japan, color, anime sci-fi TV series)
            DVD (in Japanese with English subs.) Dir.: Ryosuke Takahashi.
            #19: Intentions
            #20: Fyana

            17. FRANKENSTEIN CONQUERS THE WORLD (1965/Japan, 85 min., color, sci-fi thriller/Toho) DVD (dubbed in English)
            Dir.: Ishiro Honda. Stars: Nick Adams, Kumi Mizuno.
            An American doctor working with patients in Hiroshima encounters a strange, feral boy with a high radiation count who keeps growing and growing until he becomes giant-size and poses a threat. Very unusual kaiju adventure, with a human giant and an American star. The first collaboration between American and Japanese studios.


            July 7, 2013
            18. *FRANKENSTEIN VS. BARAGON (1965/Japan, 93 min., color, sci-fi thriller/Toho) DVD (in Japanese with English subs.)
            Dir.: Ishiro Honda. Stars: Nick Adams, Kumi Mizuno.
            Slightly longer “international” version of FRANKENSTEIN CONQUERS THE WORLD, with a new ending involving a giant octopus. Adams is dubbed in Japanese. I prefer the American cut.

            July 8, 2013
            19. TECHNO POLICE 21C (1982/Japan, 78 min., color, anime sci-fi thriller/Toho) VHS (dubbed in English)
            Dir.: Masashi Matsumoto. Music: Jo Hisaishi.
            A secret military super-tank is stolen but soon begins acting on its own, while the Techno Police are in pursuit. Poorly dubbed, but the constant mecha action is well animated. The plot looks forward to PATLABOR THE MOVIE and ROUJIN Z.


            July 10, 2013
            20-21. JETMAN (aka CHOJIN SENTAI JETMAN, 1991/Japan, 40 min., color, sentai superhero TV show) VHS (in Japanese, no subs.)
            Dir.: Keita Amemiya.
            #1: Seek the Warriors
            #2: The Third Warrior
            This is the sentai series that immediately preceded “Zyuranger,” the series that was adapted into “Mighty Morphin Power Rangers.” This one is distinguished by direction by tokusatsu master Keita Amemiya (HAKAIDER, MOON OVER TAO, KAMEN RIDER ZO, etc.).


            July 11, 2013
            22-25. *BATTLE FEVER J, Vol. 1 (1979/Japan, 100 min., color, superhero sentai series/Toei) VHS (in Japanese, no subs.) Eps. 1-4
            #1: Assault!! Run to the Ballpark
            #2: Egos’ Monster-Making Method
            #3: Search for the Spy!
            #4: It’s a Super-Powered Trap!
            The fifth sentai (Power Rangers) series and the first one with a character (half-Japanese “Diane Martin”) who’s American. Each of the five members of the team supposedly represents a different country, although they’re all played by Japanese actors.


            July 12, 2013
            26. *PACIFIC RIM – in 3-D IMAX (2013/U.S., 131 min., color, sci-fi kaiju spectacle/WB-Legendary) Seen at a multiplex/digital projection.
            Dir.: Guillermo del Toro. Stars: Charlie Hunnam, Rinko Kikuchi, Idris Elba.
            Giant, human-piloted robots fend off attacks by giant monsters from the ocean depths. Some good ideas and impressive setpieces, but script problems and casting errors prevent it from becoming the true pop classic it should have been.

            July 13, 2013
            27. *Pokémon Black and White: Adventures in Unova (2013/Japan, color, half-hour anime fantasy adventure) Seen on Cartoon Network-HD. Dubbed in English.
            “Team Plasma and the Awakening Ceremony!”

            28. GODZILLA: TOKYO S.O.S. (2003/Japan, 91 min., color, sci-fi kaiju spectacle/Toho) DVD (in Japanese with English subs.) Dir.: Masaaki Tezuka. Stars: Hiroshi Koizumi, Noboru Kaneko.
            Arguably the best of the 21st century Godzilla movies. Godzilla attacks Tokyo. Mothra and MechaGodzilla team up to fight him. The Tokyo Tower gets knocked down and the Diet building gets smashed. Koizumi plays the same scientist character he’d played in MOTHRA in 1961. A new pair of "fairies" sings the Mothra song.


            29. M.D. GEIST (1986/Japan, 45 min., color, anime sci-fi mecha thriller/OAV) VHS (in Japanese with English subs.)
            Dir.: Hayato Ikeda.
            Post-apocalyptic thriller in which an MDS (Most Dangerous Soldier) works for the beleaguered Regular Army to fight Mad Max-style gangs in a human space colony on a faraway planet. Bloody, fast-paced and short. Ends on a cliffhanger, which resulted in a sequel eleven years later!



            July 14, 2013
            30. SPACE AMOEBA (aka YOG: MONSTER FROM SPACE, 1970/Japan, 84 min., color, sci-fi adventure/Toho) DVD (in Japanese with English subs.)
            Dir.: Ishiro Honda. Stars: Akira Kubo, Yoshio Tsuchiya, Kenji Sahara.
            An alien intelligence takes over creatures on a tropical Pacific island, including a squid, a crab and a turtle, just as a team working for a Japanese resort arrives on the island. Some good ideas, but when the only monster battle involves a giant crab and a giant turtle, there’s a limit to the amount of excitement that can be achieved.


            31. M.D. GEIST II: DEATH FORCE (1996/Japan, 45 min., color, anime sci-fi mecha thriller/OAV) VHS (dubbed in English) Dir.: Koichi Ohata.
            The first one, from 1986, ended on a cliffhanger. The second one, ten years later(!) picks up quite a bit after the first one ended, so forgive us for being confused. Lots of action and gore, but not much sense, as Geist takes on the army and its newer super-warrior. Ends rather abruptly, with no sequel in sight.

            32. THE SUPER INFRAMAN (aka INFRAMAN, 1975/Hong Kong, 85 min., color, sci-fi superhero adventure/Shaw Bros.) R3 DVD (in Mandarin with English subs.) Dir.: Hua Shan. Star: Danny Lee.
            If “Ultraman” was made in Hong Kong with HK stunt teams and lots of kung fu and wire fu and the monsters laughed and joked and taunted the heroes, you’d have INFRAMAN, a true classic. This played in U.S. theaters in an English-dubbed version in 1979 and I saw it in Times Square.


            33-35. *EDEN OF THE EAST (2009/Japan, 23 min., color, sci-fi thriller TV series) DVD (in Japanese with English subs.)
            Dir.: Kenji Kamiyama.
            #1: I Picked Up a Prince!
            #2: Melancholy Monday
            #3: On the Night of the Late Show
            A young Japanese man finds himself with amnesia and a high-tech cellphone that pays for anything he wants and connects him to a “concierge” who gets him whatever he wants. He picks up a college girl to help him find out who he is. Not quite as mind-tripping as “Gantz,” “Lain” or “Boogiepop Phantom,” and a little lighter in mood than those, but somewhat in that tradition. Loaded with film references.

            36-38. POWER RANGERS TIME FORCE (2001/U.S.-Japan, color, sci-fi superhero TV series/Saban) VHS (taped off Fox Kids)
            #1: Force from the Future, Part 1
            #2: Force from the Future, Part 2
            #3: Something to Fight For
            Four Power Rangers from the year 3000 chase a villain back in time to 2001. They find their Red Ranger in an ancestor of the partner who died fighting the villain in 3000. One of the very best Power Rangers seasons and the only one with name actors (Vernon Wells as Ransik, the villain, and Edward Albert as the Red Ranger’s father).

            July 15, 2013
            39. *ULTRAMAN (1966/Japan, color, sci-fi superhero TV series/Tsuburaya Productions) DVD (in Japanese with English subs.)
            #7: The Blue Stone of Baraji
            The Ultra crew is joined by a white agent from the Paris bureau and they all go to a lost desert town in Arabia where they find a statue of Ultraman built to honor “the God of Noa.” The monster is a giant beetle.

            40. *EDEN OF THE EAST (2009/Japan, color, sci-fi thriller TV series) DVD (in Japanese with English subs.)
            Dir.: Kenji Kamiyama.
            #4: Real Reality, Fictional Reality

            July 16, 2013
            41. *ULTRAMAN (1966/Japan, color, sci-fi superhero TV series/Tsuburaya Productions) DVD (in Japanese with English subs.)
            #8: The Lawless Monster Zone

            42. *TEENAGERS FROM OUTER SPACE (1959/U.S., 85 min., b&w, sci-fi) DVD (Mill Creek Sci-Fi Classics set) Dir.: Tom Graeff. Stars: David Love, Dawn Bender.
            As badly-acted, extremely low-budget, special effects-challenged '50s sci-fi goes, this one is actually quite watchable. It has a peculiar charm and a certain amount of suspense. With more money, some name actors and a real director, it might actually have been good.

            July 17, 2013
            43-44. MOBILE SUIT GUNDAM (1979/Japan, color, anime space sci-fi series) VHS (English-dubbed)
            Dir.: Yoshiyuki Tomino.
            #12: The Threat of Zeon
            #13: Coming Home

            July 18, 2013
            45. *ULTRAMAN (1966/Japan, color, sci-fi superhero TV series/Tsuburaya Productions) DVD (in Japanese with English subs.)
            #9: Operation: Uranium

            July 19, 2013
            46-47. *EDEN OF THE EAST (2009/Japan, color, anime sci-fi thriller TV series) DVD (in Japanese with English subs.)
            Dir.: Kenji Kamiyama.
            #5: “This Is No Time to Be Thinking about That…”
            #6: “Eden of the East”

            48. *DENSHI SENTAI DENJIMAN: THE MOVIE (1980/Japan, 45 min., color, superhero sentai movie/Toei) DVD (in Japanese with no subs.)
            Cast: Kenji Ohba, Machiko Soga.
            Movie spin-off of the “Denjiman” TV series, the 1980 entry in the sentai franchise (later adapted into the Power Rangers franchise). Kenji Ohba was also in “Battle Fever J” and later in KILL BILL VOL. 1. Machiko Soga plays the villain here and was the villain, Bandora, in “Zyuranger,” a character renamed Rita Repulsa when the series was adapted into “Mighty Morphin Power Rangers.”

            49-52. SPACE SHERIFF GAVAN (1982/Japan, color, space/sci-fi/martial arts TV series/Toei) DVD (in Japanese with English subs.)
            Star: Kenji Ohba.
            #3: It's Major! Stop Dr. Kuroboshi's BEM Project
            #4: The Majin Helmet That Calls For Death
            #5: Mimi Cries! The Deadly Poison Cobra Bullet Hits Retsu
            #6: The Geniuses of the Makuu School
            As tokusatsu series go, this one probably has the best martial arts action scenes, as Sonny Chiba’s sidekick, Kenji Ohba, takes on numerous alien bad guys both in and out of his Gavan costume.

            53. DENSHI SENTAI DENJIMAN (1980/Japan, color, superhero sentai series/Toei) VHS (in Japanese with no subs.) Cast: Kenji Ohba, Machiko Soga.
            #18: Romance Blooms at the Southern Sea
            The aliens turn people into fish-men, including the Pink Ranger’s fiancé. The title is also spelled as “Denziman.”

            54. MOBILE SUIT GUNDAM (1979/Japan, color, anime space sci-fi TV series) VHS (English-dubbed)
            Dir.: Yoshiyuki Tomino.
            #14: Time, Be Still

            July 20, 2013
            55. *Pokémon Black and White: Adventures in Unova (2013/Japan, color, half-hour anime fantasy adventure) Seen on Cartoon Network-HD. Dubbed in English.
            “What Lies Beyond Truth and Ideals!”
            Interpol finally catches up with Team Plasma, ending a long story arc. Team Rocket gains new respect after helping out the good guys at a crucial moment.


            56. MOBILE SUIT GUNDAM (1979/Japan, color, space sci-fi) VHS (English-dubbed)
            Dir.: Yoshiyuki Tomino.
            #15: Sayla’s Agony

            57. THE GREEN HORNET (1940/U.S., b&w, superhero serial/Universal) DVD
            Directors: Ray Taylor, Ford Beebe. Stars: Gordon Jones, Keye Luke.
            Chapter 1: The Tunnel of Terror (21 min.)
            Kato is Korean in this one and a scientific genius, to boot. He also fells a villain with a karate chop, perhaps the first time Asian martial arts is seen in an American movie.

            July 21, 2013
            58-59. BUCK ROGERS (1939)/U.S., b&w, sci-fi serial/Universal) DVD
            Directors: Ford Beebe, Saul A. Goodkind. Stars: Buster Crabbe, Constance Moore.
            Chapter 1: Tomorrow’s World
            Chapter 2: Tragedy on Saturn
            An American dirigible pilot and his sidekick wake up 500 years in the future only to find that gangsters have taken over the world. Very Flash Gordon-like.

            July 22, 2013
            60-62. THE GREEN HORNET (1940/U.S., b&w, superhero serial/Universal) DVD
            Directors: Ray Taylor, Ford Beebe. Stars: Gordon Jones, Keye Luke.
            Chapter 2: The Thundering Terror
            Chapter 3: The Flying Coffins
            Chapter 4: Pillar of Flame
            Alan Ladd has a bit part in Chapters 3 & 4.

            63. MOBILE SUIT GUNDAM (1979/Japan, color, anime space sci-fi series) VHS (English-dubbed)
            Dir.: Yoshiyuki Tomino.
            #16: Amuro Deserts

            July 23, 2013
            64-65. BUCK ROGERS (1939)/U.S., b&w, sci-fi serial/Universal) DVD
            Directors: Ford Beebe, Saul A. Goodkind. Stars: Buster Crabbe, Constance Moore.
            Chapter 3: The Enemy’s Stronghold

            1.)
            The Thing From Another World! (1951) (DVD)
            My Thoughts: The vegetable-Frankenstien Thing pales in comparison to it's remake but is still a great 50's monster movie. But I guess all reviews post 82 are pretty much comparisons of the two so I will try to diverge a little. Holy cat was that guy really saying 'Holy Cat'? There was a lot of interesting concepts in this movie but they seemed noticeably hampered by budgetary concerns. Still the dialog was interesting and snappy and overlapped in a way that was most unusual for the time (I must admit to having that little nugget pointed out for me by a retrospective documentary). An enjoyable if not ultimately by the numbers 50's horror movie (although without context for the time period this may be what started the 50's standard...).
            (4 out of 5)
            2.)
            The Thing (1982) (Blu-Ray)
            My Thoughts: It was last years challenge viewing of this title of my old dvd on my new tv that made this upgrade to blu-ray a necessity, god I hate picture boxing! Looked great this time though, lots of new detail, my number 2 movie has never looked so good. Watching this reminds me that I have 3 awesome Thing related pieces to get framed still, I think I shale make that a priority.

            3.)
            The Thing (2011) (Blu-Ray)
            My Thoughts: Still rings a bit too much like Nemesis than The Thing, even so it is an ultimately satisfying experience for fans of the original. And we got to go inside the space ship, something my adolescent mind had pondered for years. A solid movie if you can get over the hollywood conceits.
            (3.5 out of 5)
            4.)
            Commentary For The Thing (1982) (Blu-Ray)
            My Thoughts: An interesting commentary with Russell and Carpenter, what I really liked about it is you can tell they had fun doing it. Those little bits always make me regret not following that passion when I was young. Recorded in '95, I would love to have something more updated, perhaps with Russell and a moderator or someone who deconstructs and analyzes the film. They missed the ball on the 30th anniversary, maybe on the 40th.

            5.)
            Commentary For The Thing (2011) (Blu-Ray) *
            My Thoughts: Bit of an average track, I did like the 'we are recording this prior to the film being released' aside where they speculate how it will be received. More informative than entertaining.
            (3 out of 5)
            6.)
            Tom and Jerry Blast Off to Mars! (2005) (Blu-Ray) *
            My Thoughts: This movie was a pretty big disappointment, when I saw the Blu-Ray I though there might be an actual decent movie here. Not so much, it was poorly acted, scripted and the scientific inaccuracies boggled the mind. I know it is a cartoon but still, I would have even accepted a Looney Toons degree of accuracy. Pure mindless kids fodder.
            (1.5 out of 5)
            7.)
            Class Of Nuke 'Em High (1986) (Blu-Ray)
            My Thoughts: Needed a trashy pallet cleanser after the previous overly family friendly hack job. I grew up with this movie and have quite a soft spot for it and the lead actresses breasts in my heart. Also the title song is so catchy, I miss movie specific songs. The blu-ray leave a little something to be desired with it's washed out picture and it's shitty sound quality but it still is the best the movie has ever looked. Also there is a bonus feature that is just chicks working out naked, for an hour? It cut into overall challenge viewing time but I allowed it.

            8.)
            Commentary For Class Of Nuke 'Em High (1986) (Blu-Ray) *
            My Thoughts: There is something I dig about Lloyd Kaufman and his ascetic choices. He is Troma Entertainment and as such is fascinating to listen too. Also as I have said before, low budget pictures almost always make for better commentaries. Getting an actor in on the track couldn't have hurt though, especially if it was Chrissy.
            (4 out of 5)
            9.)
            Mutant Hunt (1987) (DVD) *
            My Thoughts: There is actually about 5 minutes of awesome here, unfortunately it is surrounded by 70 minutes of awful. This is one I should have saved more a more alcohol fueled Drive-In challenge entry. And hey one of the Cretins from Class Of Nuke 'Em High is in this movie! Someone was coasting on their hair in the late 80's. If you are planning on watching this one you should also plan to start while already inebriated, those 5 minutes are pretty deep in there.

            Firefly S01E01-05 (2002) (Blu-Ray) *
            My Thoughts: For whatever reason I missed this the first time around, I think I had it confused with Brisco County at the time. I, like the sweaty masses before me, quite enjoyed this show. It is a bit depressing to know it is only one season and a movie but I am looking forward to the rest.
            (4 out of 5)
            12.5)
            The Darkest Hour (2011) (Blu-Ray) **
            My Thoughts: I loved the abandoned Moscow setting and the idea of energy based aliens. The final form of said aliens was a bit of a let down and the writing a bit unimaginative (lots of lifting from other movies). But it was enjoyable enough scifi faire. Also I m always a fan of crazy Russians.
            (3.5 out of 5)
            My Wife's Thoughts: It is pretty good but I was very disappointed that creepy monster. I thought more like natural disaster related or something... And ending is not that great good challenge so i can give them 3.5. Oshimai.

            13 - 16.)
            Firefly S01E06-12 (2002 - 2003) (Blu-Ray) *
            My Thoughts: It is a really good series, I am not getting Lost or Battlestar involved in it but highly enjoyable all the same. And hey the voluptuous redhead from Mad Men! We seem to be in a lull of good Sci-Fi shows right now, or maybe I just am in the dark, but it's nice catching up with some of these gems from the past. This whole series is really making me want to revisit Dollhouse.

            16.5 - 17.)
            Firefly S01E13-14 (2002 - 2003) (Blu-Ray) *
            My Thoughts: It was a good show, if I had been on board at the time I would have also lamented it's passing. I am jazzed about the movie however, there are lots of plot points I would like to see explored further. Like the Reavers, the captain's 'wife', the demented bounty hunter and of course what' up with River. Based on what I remember of the trailers back in the day I imagine it will mostly focus on the latter but one can hope.
            (4 out of 5)
            18.)
            Serenity (2005) (Blu-Ray) *
            My Thoughts: That was fucking awesome. Usually movies that continue TV properties are just kind of meh. The best one I can think of would be the Farscape miniseries and this blew that out of the water. It was a fantastic movie that I probably would have enjoyed even without seeing the series. You can count me as one of those Whedon freaks from now on.
            (5 out of 5)
            19.)
            Commentary For Serenity (2005) (Blu-Ray) *
            My Thoughts: A fun commentary with a fun group of people, excellent chemistry in this group. And there is just something so intriguing about that soft spoken Summer Glau. A must listen for any fan, it is making me regret not listening to the show commentaries but it did seem there was a lack of cast participation in those.
            (4 out of 5)
            20.)
            X-Men (2000) (DVD)
            My Thoughts: An interesting set of circumstances, the first really successful super hero movie and one of the last made pre 9/11. The mentality of the movie is quite different than most of the newer breed Marvel movies, more... innocent. It was the coolest film of that summer, even with the bad CG. And there is no question why they keep making more Wolverine movies as he is by far the most intriguing character.
            (4 out of 5)
            - July 7th -
            21.)
            X2: X-Men United (2003) (DVD)
            My Thoughts: A nice step up from the original, darker, more mutants, plastics, Mystique this time as the sexual aggressor, and of course more Adamantium. I wonder if we will ever get a full marvel universe property with everyone, although it would probably cost more than Avatar just in actors.
            (4.5 out of 5)
            22.)
            X-Men: Last Stand (2006) (DVD)
            My Thoughts: I'm The Juggernaut, bitch! This one wasn't as well received as the other two but still as enjoyable in my book. The Wolverine/Magnito rift got a little stale, and I am still kind of pissed about Rogue. Loved the Centurion tease and wish that could be X4, but I guess the myriad of prequels will have to suffice. Oh and hey, first X-Men movie with an post-credits scene!
            (4 out of 5)
            23.)
            Capitan America (1990) (DVD)
            My Thoughts: Wow, should have watched this one before the X-Men trilogy, I knew it was campy but damn. I remember really liking this as a kid but everything here is just wrong. The mask makes him look deformed, the music is wildly inappropriate and then there is the acting, plot and effects, yikes. I am going to have to make a point one day to watch the new Captain America and this back to back with a few brews. It does make the leap into so bad it's good territory frequently enough though to make it at least a bearable experience.
            (2.5 out of 5)
            24.)
            District 9 (2009) (Blu-Ray)
            My Thoughts: I love hard R sci-fi movies, they could have relatively easily gone PG-13 with this and I am so glad they didn't. This is basically Alien Nation if the aliens were a little more stupid and a lot less inter-breedable. A fun out of the ordinary picture, lots of dark comedy and I think there may be an apartheid allegory here?
            (4 out of 5)
            25.)
            Despicable Me (2010) (Blu-Ray) *
            My Thoughts: This came out as one of those weird movie parring (where separate studios make similar movies and release them at the same time) with Megamind. I liked them both but Megamind was far and away the better movie, too bad it was marketed so so poorly. Getting back to Despicable Me, not quite up to Pixar level of quality but still really good and I look forward to Despicable Me 2 (although Megamind 2 would have been preferable).
            (4 out of 5)
            My Wife's Thoughts: I like this movie, so cute so cute, I want to see Despicable Me 2. I liked Dr. Guru. And I think all that kitty movies almost similar story, that bad guy or mean become very good the ending. Up... ato.... that green guy no that blue guy.

            26.)
            Alien Raiders (2008) (DVD) *
            My Thoughts: I must admit to having inflated expectations after comments on this board and seeing that this was made by the same team that made Otis (one of my top rated titles for the 2011 OHMC). I liked the premiss of the movie but found the execution lacking. It just felt a little flat and boring and the actors were a bit subpar. It is suppose to be The Thing in a grocery but don't judge it up to those standards.
            (3 out of 5)
            27.)
            The Storyteller: Greek Myths S01E01-04 (1990) (DVD) *
            My Thoughts: I love Henson projects, there is not nearly enough of them and the original Storyteller was a great series. This 4 episode Greek Myths version was not nearly as good as the first one but still an enjoyable watch. Also we get the dog with Hoggle's voice again! And maybe I just grew up with the whitewashed Greek Myths but these were a lot darker than I remember them being (in a good way).
            (3.5 out of 5)
            - July 9th -
            28.)
            Enemy Mine (1985) (Blu-Ray) *
            My Thoughts: It might have been the effects of alcohol but this movie was kind of beautiful. This is one of those movies I have only ever seen snippets of over the years and finally getting to take in the whole thing in was a surprisingly cathartic experience. There was lots of miniatures and sometimes plasticy effects to be sure but it just added to the appeal of this one. It was like Cast Away, if it had been on another planet and there had been an alien. The racial undertones were really weird but I thought this movie was great. And the limited edition blu-ray looked amazing (wish there had been some special features though).
            (4.5 out of 5)
            29.)
            Virus (1999) (DVD)
            My Thoughts: I saw this in the theater when it first came out and I remember really hating it, I think mostly due to CG switchover backlash. But every few years I watch it again and each time I like it just a little bit more. This was the first time I was completely on board, lots and lots of cheese here. And I think this one fairs better than it's doppelgänger, released at the same time ship salvage turned awry movie, Deep Rising. Also it has a way better cast and more energy based aliens.

            Starship Troopers: Invasion (2012) (Blu-Ray)
            My Thoughts: What is up with all these CG movies lately? It's not a bad thing I just am not sure if the audience is really there for these. This felt a lot like Halo Legends but with more CG boobies, which was not unwelcome. I found it to be an enjoyable experience, not nearly as good as the first of course but easily better than 2 & 3. The movie is mostly ship based so there is a few missed opportunities here, I still wonder how the bugs would do in a snowy or jungle environment. If you liked the first one but thought it had way too much down time then this is a movie for you.

            Warning Sign (1985) (DVD)
            My Thoughts: The soft eighties prequel to 28 Days Later. I love disease movies and protocol movies even more so this was a treat. And to think I never would have even know about this movie if Anchor Bay haddn't been throwing old previews in front of their catalog releases.

            Dr Black, Mr Hyde (1976) (DVD) *
            My Thoughts: I had this one lined up for the B movie challenge but for whatever reason it didn't make the draft. It's your basic Jekyll/Hyde story except this time Jekyll is an inner city black doctor and Hyde is a evil black prostitute killing white guy. Boobs, white face, murders and that chick from The Omega Man, a must for Blaxploitation fans.

            Hulk (2003) (Blu-Ray) **
            My Thoughts: So yeah it took me a decade to see this one, if I recall correctly my then bff saw it opening weekend and told me it was lame and then America told me it was lame. So at that I must admit to lowered expectations but I kinda liked it. I dug the comic book art style and thought the whole initial setup and origin story were great. The actual hulk and end ending were just kind of meh but it was still an enjoyable experience. It is hard to do an effective Hulk movie, how can you really make it seem like the hulk is in peril? I liked it though, not as bad as I was lead to believe.

            My Wife's Thoughts: Ending choto unexpected ga cute-o. Good movie, I didn't expect that ending but I like that he still alive. And some things like mixing the current move ne? Like Avatars, Lost, Spiderman everything seems together some scenes.

            Commentary For Hulk (2003) (Blu-Ray) *
            My Thoughts: Ang Lee was interesting to listen to but this track didn't quite do it for me. It seemed more technical and less behind the scenes driven. Should have had him pair up with Jennifer Connelly. I did at least learn one thing from this track about how white people's eyes are more sensitive to light. Not a track that most people will ever listen to...

            Kraa!: The Sea Monster (1998) (DVD) *
            My Thoughts: I have literally seen better Power Ranger episodes. This movie is a mess of bad/unfinished effects, shitty dialog/acting, a horrible script and is unfortunately family friendly too. $30 more in the effects budjet, some blue dialog and about 9 breasts would have gone a long way here. As it sits it is shaping up to be my worst of challenge. I did give it half a point for the alien with the Italian accent though.

            My Thoughts: I thought this movie was great and I don't care what anyone says. After the slap in the face that was T3, I really enjoyed both this and The Sarah Conner Chronicles. They really did a good job with the post consciousness future and Batman fighting Terminators? Whats not to like?

            Marooned (1969) (DVD) *
            My Thoughts: What was once considered science fiction is now much more just fiction. This movie came out just after the first moon landing (Apollo 11) and tells a very similar story to what would eventually happen to Apollo 13. The movie is really slow by todays standards or perhaps I was just really tired. There were a couple of great scenes, like Gregory Peck being patched through to the president on a squad car radio but otherwise this one was decent but hasn't aged all that well.

            My Thoughts: Every now and then I have a friend that introduces me to something that I would have never otherwise got around to watching. And this is one of those times were it turned out awesome. A surprisingly hard, dark sci-fi offering from Nickelodeon that centers around an insane invading alien who was sent to earth for the sole purpose to get him away from his own kind. It's hilarious, discussing and a uniquely intriguing experience. I can't wait to show this to my kids someday.

            My Thoughts: I know what you are thinking, you're thinking that I cheated the numbers by a quarter point. And I will have you know that in addition to the listed information I listened to not one but 2 episode commentaries. The second half of the series isn't quite as strong as the first but it is still top quality sci-fi comedy, I would rank this series right up there with Fururama.

            They Live (1988) (DVD)
            My Thoughts: One of the best sci-fi movies ever made. The glasses, the aliens, the fight, the music and of course the Piper. It's one of those movies that seems perpetually relevant. Mandatory viewing material for any fan of the silver screen.

            The Fantastic Four (2005) (DVD)
            My Thoughts: Oh Fantastic Four... I was all set to love you; superheroes, Jessica Alba, what could go wrong? The final product is about as cheesy as the infamous Corman version, in fact surprisingly so. Don't get me wrong, it is still entertaining but don't expect anything near the level of an Avengers arc or one of the X-Men movies. A guilty pleasure for sure and hey it's Captain America on fire, acting all crazy and sexed up!

            Commentary For The Fantastic Four (2005) (DVD)
            My Thoughts: Any commentary with Jessica Alba is a commentary for me. I loved some of the stories, like the last minute addition of the bra and panties scene, the talk about the then future sequel and all of the Thing suit talk. And I will give them probs for going suit as opposed to CG Thing. I liked this track but I think I would have liked it more if we had swapped out the actor that played Mr. Fantastic for Chris Evans.

            Fantastic Four: Rise Of The Silver Surfer (2007) (DVD)
            My Thoughts: And then it's like they learned nothing from the reaction to the previous movie. They went cheesier and made it even movie family friendly. Now that I think about it this had to be the only PG rated modern Marvel movie. It was an ambitious choice going with Galacticus and the Silver Surfer but they just weren't quite successful at telling it. Still entertaining and better than at least a few of the recent marvel movies but nowhere near top shelf.

            The Amazing Story Of Superman (2006) (DVD) *
            My Thoughts: An interesting documentary and it got me excited to finally see Man Of Steel and I think maybe even Smallville. The coverage on Superman 2 was surprisingly light and the coverage on the old b&w tv series was a bit heavy but still enjoyable. Also there are several interesting oddities here, like bits of a Superman musical and a lost pilot with dwarfs in animal suits recreating the 50's tv series. It would of course been a bit more intriguing if I was more of a DC fan than a Marvel fan but still interesting enough for casual viewer.

            Screamers (1995) (DVD)
            My Thoughts: Man I love this movie, it is easily the most obscure movie in my top 20. I was blown away the first time I saw this direct to video masterpiece in the 90's. The story, the setting, the acting are all top notch. Sure the effects have aged a bit but I would say the movie still holds up well. War torn alien world, Peter Weller, machines that kill, Phillip K Dick, if those 4 points do it for you don't look up anything else just go buy this movie!

            Screamers: The Hunting (2009) (DVD)
            My Thoughts: I was really surprised when they made a sequel to this. Not that the first movie wasn't deserving it's just that I have never met another person in real life who had actually seen it. It was nice to go back into this universe and there is defiantly some interesting concepts here. But they try to go a little more Resident Evil this time and really loose a lot of the magic of the first movie. It is ultimately disappointing in comparison and buy it's self is mearly average, I will give it a half point bump though for what they tried to do.

            Commentary For The Crazies (1973) (Blu-Ray) *
            My Thoughts: As I have said ad nauseum during these challenges; low budget movies almost always make for better commentaries. We get Romero and a moderator on this track and there is just something about Romero he is always so interesting when I hear him speak. His track was no more informing than say Ang Lee's track on Hulk but vastly more interesting and this is probably my least favorite Romero movie.

            Female Space Invaders (1978) (DVD)
            My Thoughts: I really disliked this movie the first time I watched it. I think it had been billed to me as a low budget Star Wars. So when I initially tried it out I was so not in the mood for this insane Flash Gordon. Now, 5 years later, this was deliciously B. "Imperial Battleship, halt the flow of time!" Fun ridiculousness.

            Troll Hunter (2010) (Blu-Ray) *
            My Thoughts: Norway with the films lately. I don't think I have seen any Norwegian films and then bam this is the second one this year. This one was intriguing, I liked the out of the ordinary Norwegian setting and the Troll trope is not a saturated sub-genre by any means. The trolls did have a strange CG look but it is something that the handheld aspect of the movie helps you get over. An unusual movie and recommended for someone wanting something out of the main stream.

            Dark Crystal (1982) (Blu-Ray)
            My Thoughts: This is one of those fallback movies, something that is always on deck when I am not sure what to watch. I can't really think of another completely fantasy world movie that is as good (no Earth connections (aside from the English)). It's beautiful and in my opinion required viewing material.

            Cyclone (1987) (DVD) *
            My Thoughts: Jeffery Combs? Futuristic motorcycle? Cheesy cheesy goodness? I enjoyed this movie more than anyone really should. It almost feels more like an 80's tv show than a movie but it was oh so entertaining. Not good, but entertaining. And it did make me want to check out buying a bike again.

            Re-Animator (1985) (Blu-Ray)
            My Thoughts: I was saving this one for the OHMC but that last Combs movie pushed it over the top. So the blu-ray it's self was ultimately somewhat of a disappointment for it's picture quality and lack of the superior R-Rated Cut but for $5 I really bought it for the retrospective documentary. The movie it's self, at least the longer combined cut I normally watch, is one of my favorite zombie movies of all time. Top shelf stuff.

            In Time (2011) (Blu-Ray) **
            My Thoughts: The hallmark of a good scifi movie is that it creates a universe that you want to spend more time in, even if it is not with your main characters. This was a good movie with an interesting scifi/Bonnie & Clyde angle. I kind of want to live here, so long as I wasn't there in the poorest district.

            All Superheroes Must Die (2012) (Blu-Ray) *
            My Thoughts: I really wanted to like this one but the actors, the actors were just so... off. Seriously this was almost a good movie, different actors a little sharpening of the dialog and some better editing and this could have been fun. Did enjoy James Remar as the super villain though.

            Re-Animator Resurectus (2007) (Blu-Ray) *
            My Thoughts: Ah the real reason I dropped a fiver for the Re-Animator blu-ray. I liked this but I must confess to having been spoiled by the recent spate of retrospective horror docs. And as such this one did not quite hit what I would consider to be the new par. I was decent but felt too much like a 00's behind the scenes featurette. Still, learned a few new tid bits about one of my favorite movies.

            Commentary For Re-Animator (1985) (Blu-Ray)
            My Thoughts: Fantastic track, we get all 3 leads and Dean Halsey. Lots of great behind the scenes and stories, easily better than the retrospective. Jeffery Combs seems like a really fun guy, I met him briefly once at a sci-fi convention and was really surprised that he didn't have a line at his signing booth (name drop).

            Night Watch (2004) (Blu-Ray)
            My Thoughts: Oh Ruskies, your so strange but I like you. This weird, swarthy, modern day fantasy is a nice change of pace from the predominately family friendly stuff coming out in the US nowadays. Great effects, interesting lore think Highlander, Harry Potter & The Matrix and you'd sort of be on the right track.

            My Thoughts: I had not anticipated revisiting this so soon after just watching it for the first time earlier this year. And I probably wouldn't have if it hadn't of been for Firefly. But there is just something about those Whedon-verses and of course Eliza Dushku. I fell for this show here in the first few episodes but couldn't even conceive of where it finally ended up.

            Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole (2010) (Blu-Ray) * *
            My Thoughts: It was a good movie, the 3D flying scenes look great, in fact the whole movie was eye candy. Good narrative but like most non-Pixar animated movies it skewed a bit young for me but hey I am getting around that age were I might want to start stocking up on those type of movies.

            My Wife's Thoughts: It is a good but I thought it is very difficult for kids, that is more for adult movie. And looks like Avatar / How To Train The Dragon put it together. It's cute, that owl looks like my husband hair style.

            Re: 6th Annual Sci Fi/Fantasy Challenge List Thread

            Gobear's 6th Annual Sci-Fi/ Fantasy Challenge



            * = First-time viewing
            June 30
            1. * Europa Report (2013). iTunes--Found-footage as a narrative device has really run its course, IMO, but this was a clever and suspenseful exception. The crew really should have heeded the warning from 2010:
            ALL THESE WORLDS
            ARE YOURS EXCEPT
            EUROPA
            ATTEMPT NO
            LANDING THERE because (Mouseover to read spoiler)the glowing space octopus will eat you*
            2. The Hunger Games (2012). Blu-Ray--Sometimes a film surpasses its source material, and that's the case here with a smart, satirical dystopian sci-fi flick.

            July 1
            3. Looper (2012). Blu-Ray--Looper's plot structure, like most time travel films, has a ton of logical holes, but Joseph Gordon-Levitt is amazing as the cynical anti-hero.

            July 3
            4. Lifeforce with Tobe Hooper Commentary (1986). Blu-Ray--A tremendously fun treasure from the 80s.

            July 4
            5. Idiocracy (2006). iTunes-Is this even fiction nowadays?

            July 6
            6. Time After Time (1979). DVD--H.G. Wells uses his time machine to travel to 1979 to catch Jack The Ripper. Of course, the movie is set in "modern" times, but in the 34 years since this film's release, its setting is every bit as archaic as Victorian London.
            7. The 10th Victim (1966). Online--60s Mod fashion that influenced a generation of films, especially the Austin Powers series.

            July 7
            8. * Radioactive Dreams (1985). Online--I've heard about this film for decades, and now I've seen it: it's a silly post-apocalypse tribute to 1940s detective films with a low-budget 80s punk gloss.
            9. Repo: The Genetic Opera (2008). Blu-Ray--I've watched this so many times, and it still rocks. Anthony Head and Sarah Brightman are amazing.

            July 9
            10. Mannequin (1987). TV--Pre-Sex and the City-Kim Cattrall plays a girl from ancient Egypt who turns up as a department store dummy only Andrew McCarthy can see. Although it is thoroughly mired in the 80s, it still holds up as a fun brainless romp.
            11. Zotz! (1962). DVD--The kind of silly, but engaging, movie I grew up on on Saturday afternoons. Tom Poston plays a stereotypical absent-minded professor who gains possession of a magic coin and gets involved with Soviet spies and assorted sit-comish shenanigans.

            July 11
            12. Mars Attacks (1997). TV--AKA Tim Burton's 1941, a pet project stuffed with A-list talent that turns out to be a huge overstuffed mess.
            13. Jason and the Argonauts (1963). TV--So English I expected Jason to have tea breaks with the Hydra.
            14. *Sharknado (2013). TV--It's a hurricane that shoots sharks at actors just barely clinging to the bottom rung of showbiz.

            July 12
            15. *Sinbad and the Eye of the Tiger (1977). TV--Just terrible. Poorly written and acted and filmed in a low-tech cheesy style. Harryhausen's creatures are terrific as always, but they are in service of a bad script.

            July 13
            16. *The Bay (2012). Netflix--There are some really scary moments here, but the film overall is wrecked by the hamhanded narration and the disjointed videos that are supposed to be "found footage." The film would have been far scarier if, like [*]REC, we had just followed the reporter on the day as she discovers the horrifying truth.
            17. *Pacific Rim (2013). Theatrical--I don't get why people are complaining about PR--it has giant robots fighting monsters.
            18. *Seeking a Friend for the End of the World (2012). TV--I don't usually like Steve Carell films, but he and Kiera Knightley have sweet romantic chemistry.

            July 14
            19. *No Escape (1994). TV--Ray Liotta gives up Goodfellas to be a badass in a Lord of the Flies-esque prison colony in the near future.

            July 15
            20. The Day After Tomorrow (2004). DVD--Global warming provokes a new ice age. Very silly stuff, including a scene where Jake Gyllenhall is chased by frost(!), but an entertaining apocalyptic film overall.
            21. Things to Come (1936).Blu-Ray--A genuinely monumental film, written by H.G. Wells who takes the anticipation of war in the 1930s and creates a world-spanning saga of mankind fallen into a new dark age. War has destroyed civilization and Everytown (aka London) becomes a ruin ruled by a warlord. But a cadre of scientists headquartered in Iraq restart a new age of scientific progress. The dark age section with Ralph Richardson as The Chief, a petty warlord who rules the ruins of the old world is easily the strongest.

            July 16
            22. Earth Vs. the Flying Saucers (1957). DVD--Completely kick-ass quintessentially 50s sci-fi. Being a DC-area resident, I get a kick out of Harryhausen's aliens wrecking DC landmarks like the Washington Monument and Union Station.
            23. Death Becomes Her (1992). TV--Such a fun film, and you can tell Goldie Hawn and Meryl Streep had fun making it.

            July 17
            24. Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1978). DVD--Even after dozens of viewings over the years, this classic still has the power to give me nightmares. The 1956 original is still terrifically effective, but this version is king.

            July 18
            25. Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Heart's Club (1978). DVD--Yes, it's hopelessly mired in the 70s, but you have ot love the Bee Gees doing Beatles covers.
            25. Zardoz (1974). DVD--An opaque masterpiece, Zardoz addresses the deepest questions of what it means to be human.

            July 19
            26. *This Is The End (2013). Theatrical--Good visual effects, but not nearly as funny as I was led to believe. Where's the humor in a bunch of Hollywood douchebags playing themselves as Hollywood douchebags in the post-Rapture hellscape?

            July 21
            27. *Supergirl (1984)A fabulous disaster. No wonder it killed Faye Dunaway's career.
            28. The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai (1978). DVD--A completely fun film!
            29. The Illustrated Man (1969). DVD--Rod Steiger at his loud and obnoxious best in a trio of Ray Bradbury stories.

            July 22
            30. *Iron Sky (2012) Netflix Nazis on the moon, an awesome concept on paper, turned into a fairly dull sci-fi comedy with some lousy visual effects. In the right hands, the idea of moon Nazis becoming campaign strategists for President Sarah Palin could have been a piece of gonzo brilliance.

            July 23
            31. Timeline (2003). TV--The film leaves our some of the best parts of the book, but on its own it's a perfectly fine time travel/ historical action film.
            32. The Brahmin and the Butterfly (1901).Online--A magician turns a caterpillar into a butterfly girl.
            33. Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog (2008). DVD--Is there anything Joss Whedon can't do? Dr. Horrible is a musical comedy gem with the typical Whedonverse dark twist of pathos.
            34. MST3K: Space Mutiny (1988).Online--Blast Hardcheese! Rock Squatthrust!

            July 24
            35. Between Two Worlds (1944). DVD--Paul Henreid was an average-looking guy; how did he get so many roles as romantic lead? In this film, he plays a suicide who finds himself on an ocean liner sailing into eternity. It's overly melodramatic at times, but it's always worth watching.
            36. Ghosts of Mars (2001). TV--I hated this piece of crap when I saw it in the theater, so I thought I'd give it another chance. It's still a terrible movie with bad acting and a hard rock soundtrack that gave me a headache.

            July 25
            37. Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome (1985). DVD--Maybe we should have gotten a clue about Mel Gibson when he played Mad Max 3 times. It's not as iconic as Road Warrior, but Thunderdome is still a quintessential 80s action film. Tina Turner really makes this film for me. Need to get the Blu-Ray because the DVD is one of the few fool-screen discs in my collection.

            July 26
            38. *Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance (2011). TV- Two hours of my life I will never get back. At some point, Nick Cage's acting needs to be declared a war crime.

            July 27
            39. *Doctor Who: Vengeance of the Daleks (1988). TV- I had abandoned Doctor Who after Peter Davison, so I missed the original run of the Seventh Doctor. This was a very good Dalek episode, even with the obvious limited budget.
            40. *Cloud Atlas (2012). Blu-Ray- You have to love a film crafted with such intelligence and care that takes the whole of human history as its canvas.

            July 29
            41. *The Colony (2013). Blu-Ray- In an earlier age The Colony would have been a drive-in movie. It's set a few decades in the future after a new ice age has wiped out most of humanity, and the remaining survivors are huddled underground in small colonies. A distress call is sent to one colony from another and then hilarity ensues. It's not a bad film, but it does seem to be beneath the talents of Lawrence Fishburne and Bill Paxton.
            42. *Journey to the Seventh Planet (1962).Online--John Agar travels to Uranus in the far-off year 2001! He and his crew of Danish actors have to fight an evil entity that tries to tempt them with illusions.

            July 30
            43. The Golden Child (1986). Netflix- Axel Foley fights Tywin Lannister. Actually, I love this movie, from when Eddie Murphy was still funny.

            July 31
            44. *Daimajin (1966). Blu-Ray- I saw the 3rd film in this series on some Saturday afternoon horror show when I was a wee tot and infomercials had not yet replaced the afternoon movie in the early 70s, but I had never seen this one. Good stuff. For Japanese kaiju, this is a very good blend of chambara with giant stone statue shenanigans.

            28>The Day of the Triffids, Part One (2009; Nick Copus; Blu)(*)--Modern-day BBC version of the classic. I'm gonna try to watch the original to see how it compares--4/5

            30>Falling Skies: "The Pickett Line"
            31>The Space Children (1958; Jack Arnold; DVD)(*)--Giant space brain possesses kids. Better than it sounds, with a '50s anti-Cold-War message--4/5

            32>Under the Dome: "Outbreak"
            July 17

            36>Flying Monkeys (2013; Robert Grasmere; DVD)(*)--Cute little monkey by day; killer winged demon by night. Dumb fun, with a few winks to Oz, and a very cute lead actress--4/5
