Re: 7th Annual Sci-Fi/Fantasy Challenge List Thread

7th Annual Sci-Fi/Fantasy Challenge

To infinity and beyond! ~ Buzz Lightyear



Anticipating the end of the world is humanity's oldest passtime. ~ Cloud Atlas

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

June 30th
1. Look, Up in the Sky!: The Amazing Story of Superman (Kevin Burns, 2006)*
--- Excellent documentary that explores the origins and evolving nature of the Man of Steel. Supes is one of my favorite superheroes, and this provides a lot of details about his place in pop culture.
2. Firefly: 1.2, "The Train Job" (2002) / 1.3, "Bushwhacked" (2002)
--- Mal and the crew make a daring train heist without knowing all the details. They also come across a derelict ship that was hit by Reavers and find a traumatized survivor.

July 1st
3. Mystery Science Theater 3000: #518, "The Atomic Brain" (1993 / Netflix Instant)*
--- Mike and company watch a horrendous film about a wealthy lady and deranged scientist who plan to transplanet her brain into the lovely body of a maid.
4. The Sci-Fi Boys (Paul Davids, 2006 / Netflix Instant)*
--- This documentary traces the importance of early science fiction fan magazines and stop motion effects on various filmmakers. Fascinating interviews and content.
5. Batman (Tim Burton, 1989)
--- Keaton's Caped Crusader goes up against Nicholson's Joker. This is definitely my favorite Batman film - I love the mixture of grit and camp.

July 2nd
6. Firefly: 1.4, "Shindig" (2002) / 1.5, "Safe" (2002)
--- Mal and Kaylee infiltrate a fancy party, and Mal gets embroiled in a duel for Inara's honor. Simon and River are kidnapped just as Book is shot, forcing hard decisions.
7a. Flash Gordon: Episode 1, "The Planet in Peril" (1936)* / Episode 2, "The Tunnel of Terror" (1936)*
--- Flash, Eve Arden, and Dr. Karkov journey to Mondo to save Earth and run afoul of Emperor Ming.
7b. Flash Gordon: Episode 3, "Captured by Shark Men" (1936)* / Episode 4, "Battling the Sea Beast" (1936)*
--- After crashing Eve and Ming's wedding, Flash is captured by Kala of the Shark Men and battles a poorly designed octopus.
8. Gamera: The Giant Monster (Noriaki Yuasa, 1965)*
--- When Gamera (discount Godzilla) is freed from his icy slumber, it's up to a group of generic humans to stop his destruction, and up to one little boy to be extremely annoying.
9. Gamera vs. Barugon (Shigeo Tanaka, 1966)*
--- Gamera's sophomore outing pits him against a lizard monster with the stupidest weaknesses (water and mirrors). Extremely pedestrian affair that focuses too much on uninteresting humans.

July 3rd
10. Trek Nation (Scott Colthorp, 2010 / Netflix Instant)*
--- Gene Roddenberry's son tries to find out about his father by interviewing fans and the creative minds behind Star Trek. Very moving.
11. How to Train Your Dragon 2 (Dean DeBlois, 2014)*
--- Hiccup's exploration opens up the world around Berk and unveils many surprises as well as a very dangerous man. I found this followup to a favorite very satisfying and poignant.

July 4th - Happy Independence Day!
12. Gamera vs. Gyaos (Noriaki Yuasa, 1967)*
--- This is a step up from Barugon and introduces the much more formidable Gyaos, a flying monster with a powerful laser. The thug plot line was swapped for land developers and local farmers.
13. Neverwas (Joshua Michael Stern, 2005)*
--- Zach Riley is a psychiatrist who goes on a personal journey to find out about his father, a noted children's book author. He finds out there's more to the fantasy book than he ever knew.
14. Captain America: The First Avenger (Joe Johnston, 2011)
--- Sexy Chris Evans becomes the titular super-soldier and goes head to head with Red Skull (Hugo Weaving). This is my favorite of the first wave Marvel films.

July 5th
15. Flash Gordon: Ep. 5, "The Destroying Ray" / Ep. 6, "Flaming Torture" / Ep. 7, "Shattering Doom" / Ep. 8, "Tournament of Death" (1936)*
--- Flash and his allies continue their adventures on Mongo. Ming conspires to have Flash killed in a deadly tournament, but Princess Aura saves him.
16. Flash Gordon: Ep. 9, "Fighting the Fire Dragon" / Ep. 10, "The Unseen Peril" / Ep. 11, "In the Claws of the Tigron" / Ep. 12, "Trapped in the Turrent" (1936)
On Mongo, Flash and company are subjected to amnesia, invisibility, a fire dragon, and a devious High Priest. Ming is up to his wily ways, and Zarkov figures out how to get back home.

July 6th
17a. Flash Gordon: Ep. 13, "Rocketing to Earth" (1936)*
--- After many adventures and close calls, Flash and friends escape Ming and Mongo with the assistance of a reformed Princess Aura and the many allies they found.
17b. Flash Gordon's Trip to Mars: Ep. 1, "New Worlds to Conquer" / Ep. 2, "The Living Dead" / Ep. 3, "Queen of Magic"
--- When Earth seems doomed, Flash and his trio of allies rocket off to Mars to do battle with Queen Azure and her newest ally, Emperor Ming!
18. Gamera vs. Viras (Noriaki Yuasa, 1968)*
--- Squid-like aliens take two boy scouts (one Japanese and one American) hostage in order to control Gamera. The film is basically a clips show, cobbling together montages of earlier monster battles to pad out an 80 minute runtime.
19. Journey to the Center of the Earth (Eric Brevig, 2008)
--- A trio of acciental adventurers find out that the Jules Verne's books are actually true. What follows is a series of perilous adventures, any of which would kill non-movie characters. It's awesome!
20. Journey 2: The Mysterious Island (Brad Peyton, 2012)*
--- Sean and his stepfather journey to the mysterious island which is full of wrong-sized animals, ruins, and Michael Caine riding a giant bee. Excellent followup!

July 7th
21. Escape to Witch Mountain (John Hough, 1975 / Netflix Instant)*
--- Two creepy orphans with a grab bag of powers run away from those who would exploit them. They team up with Eddie Albert to evade Ray Milland.
22. The Captains Close Up: Ep. 1, "Avery Brooks" / Ep. 2, "Kate Mulgrew" / Ep. 3, "Patrick" (2013 / Netflix Instant)*
--- William Shatner complies unused interview footage from his documentary. The three "Captains" are game and talk about the importance of Star Trek in their lives.
23. Gamera vs. Guiron (Noriaki Yuasa, 1969)*
--- Two boys go joyriding in a spaceship and end up on a foreign planet. Sexy space vixens want to eat their brains, so Gamera comes to the rescue and fights Guiron (basically a knife lizard).

July 8th
24. The Captains Close Up: 1.4, "Scott Bakula" / 1.5, "William Shatner" (2013 / Netflix Instant)*
25. Flash Gordon's Trip to Mars: Ep. 4, "Ancient Enemies" / Ep. 5, "The Boomerang" / Ep. 6, "Tree-Men of Mars" / Ep. 7, "The Prisoner of Mongo" (1938)*
--- Flash and Zarkov race against time to acquire a paralyzing ray gun to rescue Dale and Happy from the Clay-Men. They encounter Prince Barin and go to the kingdom of the Tree-Men.
26. Gamera vs. Jiger (Noriaki Yuasa, 1970)*
--- Gamera is at it again - this time protecting those crazy humans after they unwittingly release Jiger by moving an ancient statue. Just as good as the previous film.

July 9th
27. The Philadelphia Experiment (Stewart Raffill, 1984 / Netflix Instant)*
--- An experiment gone awry sends two sailors 40 years into the future. They team up with Nancy Allen and try to make sense of their bizarre predicament.
28. The Final Countdown (Don Taylor, 1980 / Netflix Instant)*
--- A startling anomaly sends a battleship and its crew into the past. When they realize they have arrived on the scene the day before the attack on Pearl Harbor, they have to figure out what to do about their predicament.
29. Flash Gordon's Trip to Mars: Ep. 8, "The Black Sapphire of Kalu" / Ep. 9, "Symbol of Death" / Ep. 10, "Incense of Forgetfulness" / Ep. 11, "Human Bait" (1938)*
--- Dale actually contributes to the group... and then gets drugged into forgetfulness. Flash and company find out how to thwart Azura.
30. Flash Gordon's Trip to Mars: Ep. 12, "Ming the Merciless" / Ep. 13, "The Miracle of Magic" / Ep. 14, "A Beast at Bay" / Ep. 15, "An Eye for an Eye" (1938)*
--- Flash and friends finally go head-to-head with Ming after he betrays Azura. There's lots of running about and finally a daring escape from Mars!

July 10th
31. Battlestar Galactica: 1.1, "Saga of a Star World, Part I" / 1.2, "Saga of a Star World, Part II" (1978 / Netflix Instant)
--- The Twelve Colonies and most of the Fleet are wiped out by the shiny Cylons. The Battlestar Galactica survives to lead the remains of humanity to the fabled sister world: Earth.
32. Battlestar Galactica: 1.3, "Saga of a Star World, Part III" / 1.4, "The Lost Planet of Gods, Part I" (1978 / Netflix Instant)
33a. Battlestar Galactica: 1.5, "The Lost Planet of the Gods, Part II" (1978 / Netflix Instant)
--- I love the feel of this show, but it is impossible to not think about the bleak tone of the remake. Also, I don't think I found Starbuck as annoying when I watched this before.
33b. La Jetée (Chris Marker, 1962 / English dub)*
--- Haunting story told through still images and calm narration. There are a lot of things that go unsaid that make this story all the more mysterious.
34. Twelve Monkeys (Terry Gilliam, 1995)
--- Bruce Willis is sent back in time to find out the events that lead to a global epidemic. He teams up with a psychiatrist to figure out the secrets of the Army of the Twelve Monkeys, lead by a deranged Brad Pitt. One of my favorites!

July 11th
35. Gamera vs. Zigra (Noriaki Yuasa, 1971)*
--- An alien creature attacks a moon base and then sets up shop in Earth's oceans, planning to use humans as a food source. Gamera gets involved in endless underwater battles.
36. Gamera: Super Monster (Noriaki Yusas, 1980)*
--- Yet another clips movie that compiles all the fights from previous movies with a couple of random anime clips. There are space-women, an annoying kid, and an evil spaceship that all but overshadow our giant turtle.
37. Creature from the Black Lagoon (Jack Arnold, 1954)
--- Scientists find a humanoid monster that becomes infatuated with the lone female of the group. I find everything about this film to be charming and compelling.
38. Firefly: 1.6, "Our Mrs. Reynolds" / 1.7, "Jaynestown" (2002)
--- Saffron is introduced as Mal's new wife, and things heat up. Jayne gets some unexpected character development when he finds out that he's a folk hero.

July 13th
39. Flash Gordon Conquers the Universe: Ep. 1, "The Purple Death" / Ep. 2, "Freezing Torture" / Ep. 3, "Walking Booms" / Ep. 4, "The Destroying Ray" (1940)*
--- Flash and friends much travel back to Mongo when Ming releases a deadly dust on Earth. Once there, they travel to an ice kingdom with Prince Barin.
40. Flash Gordon Conquers the Universe: Ep. 5, "The Palace of Horror" / Ep. 6, "Flaming Death" / Ep. 7, "The Land of the Dead" / Ep. 8, "The Fiery Abyss" (1940)*
--- Ming uses his heat ray, Flash must do some fancy flying, and Professor Zarkov makes several impressive devices on the fly. Everyone ends up among the Rock Men.

July 14th
41. Flash Gordon Conquers the Universe: Ep. 9, "The Pool of Peril" / Ep. 10, "The Death Mist" / Ep. 11, "Stark Treachery" / Ep. 12, "Doom of the Dictator" (1940)*
--- Flash and friends become allies with the Rock Men and go up against Ming in a thrilling climax. There is much activity and daring, and everything ends well for our intrepid heroes.
42. Battlestar Galactica: 1.6, "The Lost Warrior" / 1.7, "The Long Patrol" (1978 / Netflix Instant)
--- Apollo finds himself enacting a western on a planet with a lone Cylon. Starbuck finds himself on a prison colony with lots of booze and secrets.
43. Unknown Island (Jack Bernhard, 1948 / YouTube)*
--- An expedition explores an island inhabited by dinosaurs and ape-creatures. The leader is obsessed with his photographs, and the sea captian is crazy. Pure fluff.
44. Just Imagine (David Butler, 1930 / YouTube)*
--- Very odd musical in which the 1980s includes meals in pill form, exploration of Mars, and odd marriage/procreation practices. Scenes from this were used in the Flash Gordon serials.

July 15th
45. Firefly: 1.8, "Out of Gas" / 1.9, "Ariel" (2002)
--- When Serenity runs out of air, Mal struggles to repair it and reflects on assembling his crew. Later, Simon smuggles River into a hospital in a daring heist.
46. The Wasp Woman (Roger Corman & Jack Hill, 1959)*
--- Janice gets hooked on an experimental serum that restores youth. Cheesiness ensues, as does lots of misogyny.
47. Brazil (Terry Gilliam, 1985)
--- Sam is a midlevel government official who gets drawn into lots of intrigue all because of a typo. This is one of my favorite films.

July 16th
48. Honey, I Shrunk the Kids (Joe Johnston, 1989 / Netflix Instant)
--- Rick Moranis is a scientist whose shrinking ray makes four kids no higher than a grasshopper's knee. While the effects are dated, I still found it very thrilling.
49. The Adventures of Superman: 2.3, "The Man Who Could Read Minds" / 2.4, "Jet Ace" / 2.5, "Shot in the Dark" / 2.6, "The Defeat of Superman" (1953)*
--- Superman goes up against a ring of thieves, a rouge journalist, a "dead" man, and a scientist stereotype. Jimmy and Lois accompany him on his adventures.

July 17th
50. Red Planet Mars (Harry Horner, 1952 / YouTube)*
--- Christianity and Western values are good, and communism is bad in this first contact film when martians spout the Bible. Very preachy and pretty boring.
51. The Mad Doctor of Market Street (Joseph H. Lewis, 1942 / YouTube)*
--- A mad doctor obsessed with restoring life flees civilization and ends up shipwrecked on a island with natives and a small group of tropes. It's very silly.
52. TinkerBell (Bradley Raymond, 2008 / Netflix Instant)*
--- Tink is not happy to be a mere tinker fairy and tries to find another talent, causing destruction in her wake. It's a surprisingly enjoyable recommendation from my sister.

July 18th
53. TRON (Steven Lisberger, 1982)*
--- Jeff Bridges plays a game designer who gets sent into a computer system to battle an evil program. Hokey and dated but oh so much fun. Loved it.
54. WarGames (John Badham, 1983)*
--- Matthew Broderick is a genius at electronics who cannot pass high school science. He accidentally hacks the wrong computer and ends up setting WWIII in motion. Awesome!

July 21st
55. Escaflowne: 1.1, "Fateful Confession" / 1.2, "The Girl From the Mystic Moon" / 1.3, "The Gallant Swordsman" / 1.4, "The Diabolical Adonis" (1996 / English dub)*
--- Hitomi, Japanese high school girl, is transported to Gaea and becomes embroiled in various battles. She meets the brash Van and the honorable Allen.
56. Escaflowne: 1.5, "Seal of the Brothers" / 1.6, "City of Intrigue" / 1.7, "Unexpected Partings" / 1.8, "The Day the Angel Flew" (1996 / English dub)*
--- Hitomi, Van, and Allen travel to the capital of Asturia, pursued by the psychotic Dilandau and enigmatic Folken. Secrets are discovered about everyone and the titular mech.
57. Firefly: 1.10, "War Stories" / 1.11, "Trash" (2002)
--- Wash picks the wrong time to question Zoe and Mal's relationship and ends up in the hands of a sadistic torturer. Then the gang encounters Saffron/Bridget/Yolanda who persuades them to do a daring heist.
58. It Came From Beneath the Sea (Robert Gordon, 1955)*
--- A giant radioactive octopus terrorizes the Pacific and it's up to our intrepid heroes (two scientists and a Naval officer) to destroy the beast. Great effects by the legendary Ray Harryhausen.

July 22nd
59. eXistenZ (David Cronenberg, 1999 / Netflix Instant)*
--- Videogames get the "Inception" treatment when a designer and marketing trainee fall into a creepy new game that uses organic controls. It's weird and icky and visceral and awesome.
60. Battlestar Galactica: 1.8, "Gun on Ice Planet Zero, Part I" / 1.9, "Gun on Ice Planet Zero, Part II" (1978 / Netflix Instant)
--- The Cylons lay a trap for the fleet, and it's up to Starbuck Apollo, and Boomer as well as a team of convicts to destroy a huge laser cannon. Also, there are clones, a mad doctor, and too much Boxey.
61. Firefly: 1.12, "The Message" / 1.13, "Heart of Gold" (2002)
--- Mal and Zoe receive the body of a war buddy in the mail, but not is all that it seems. Later, Inarra is contacted by an old friend who needs help defending her brothel.
62. Batman Returns (Tim Burton, 1992)
--- Keaton's still Batman and has to go up against a trio of foes: the Penguin, Catwoman, and Christopher Walken. I love this film, mostly due to Michelle Pfeiffer's Selina/Catwoman.

July 23rd
63. Battlestar Galactica: 1.10, "The Magnificent Warriors" / 1.11, "The Young Lords" (1978 / Netflix Instant)
--- Things get Western on one planet when Starbuck becomes Sheriff of a grubby town. Then things get vikings when Starbuck finds a planet of kids in viking garb.
64. Battlestar Galactica: 1.12, "The Living Legend, Part I" / 1.13, "The Living Legend, Part II" (1978 / Netflix Instant)
--- The Pegasus returns with brash Commander Cain at its helm. A power struggle ensues when the Cylons attack the fuel deficient fleet.
65a. Battlestar Galactica: 1.14, "Fire in Space" (1978 / Netflix Instant)
--- Tense episode has some of the cast trapped by fires and Adama in the medical bay after Cylons crash into the Galactica. Excellent episode.
65b. Firefly: 1.14, "Objects in Space" (2002)
--- The last episode finds a ruthless, manipulative bounty hunter invading Serenity in search of River. Everyone gets an honest moment, and River is finally integrated into the crew. It's sad but so very good.
66. Battlestar Galactica: 1.15, "War of the Gods, Part I" / 1.16, "War of the Gods, Part II" (1979 / Netflix Instant)
--- So the crew meets Satan, I guess. Maybe he's an all-powerful alien. It's all a bit silly, but it's fun to see someone actively undermine Adama.

July 24th
67. Earth vs. the Flying Saucers (Fred F. Sears, 1956)*
--- Aliens invade the Earth with superior technology. It's up to a scientist and his wife to defeat the flying saucers before they destroy Washington. Great effects and lots of iconic shots.
68. 20 Million Miles to Earth (Nathan Juran, 1957)*
--- A rocket crashes near Sicily, and one survivor is found. Meanwhile, an alien creature from Venus is released. It's up to the survivor, a scientist, and a female doctor to defeat it. Oddly sad.
69. The Visitor (Giulio Paradisi, 1979 / Netflix Instant)*
--- So John Huston is sent to quell an evil girl in this psychedelic film of insanity. Most of the time, I didn't really know what was going on.

July 25th
70. Batman Forever (Joel Schumacher, 1995)
--- Val Kilmer takes over the cape and cowl in this mess of a film. Two-Face and the Riddler are terrorizing Gotham, and it's up to Batman and Robin to protect the city and Nicole Kidman.

July 26th
71. The 10th Kingdom: Part I (David Carson & Herbert Wise, 2000)
--- Prince Wendell is turned into a dog by the Evil Queen and ends up drawing Virginia and her father out of New York and into a fairytale land. One of my favorite miniseries.

July 27th
72. Serenity (Joss Whedon, 2005)
--- In the cinematic followup to Firefly, Mal and the crew uncover a terrible secret that is lurking in River's disturbed mind. Meanwhile, a ruthless Operative is tracking the Tams down.
73. Batman & Robin (Joel Schumacher, 1997)
--- George Clooney takes over Bat duties and goes up against Mr. Freeze and Poison Ivy. Over-the-top antics, garish sets, and garbled gender dynamics make this the most bizarre Batman film.
74. TRON: Legacy (Joseph Kosinski, 2010)*
--- Flynn's son follows his dad into the Grid and must defeat CLU, a perfectionist program bent on world domination. I thought this was a pretty good followup to the 80s classic.
75. Godzilla and Mothra: The Battle for Earth (Takao Okawara, 1992)*
--- A meteorite awakens Godzilla, Mothra, and Battra amid an environmental message. The monsters clash again and again as the hapless humans look on in awe and terror.

July 28th
76. The 10th Kingdom: Part II (David Carson & Herbert Wise, 2000)
--- Virginia, Wolf, and Tony traverse the 9 Kingdoms in search of a magic mirror and encounter a plethora of fairytale creatures and dangerous situations.
77. The 10th Kingdom: Part III (David Carson & Herbert Wise, 2000)
Our intrepid heroes must go up against the Evil Queen to restore Prince Wendell to the throne and save the 9 Kingdoms. The series is just great; I enjoyed every minute!

July 29th
78. Batman Begins (Christopher Nolan, 2005)
--- Christian Bale sulks in as the Caped Crusader in this gritty reboot. His butler is Michael Caine; his girlfriend is self-righteous; his villains are largely forgettable.

July 30th
79. The Day After Tomorrow (Roland Emmerich, 2004)
--- Global warming creates super storms that kill a lot of people and force Dennis Quaid to trek to New York in search of his son. It's super fun fluff.

July 31st
80. The City of Lost Children (La cité des infants perdus) (Marc Caro & Jean-Pierre Jeunet, 1995 / Netflix Instant)*
--- A strongman and an orphan girl must battle evil conjoined twins, evil fleas, and a host of science experiments to rescue the strongman's adopted little brother. Amazing story and visuals.

Re: 7th Annual Sci-Fi/Fantasy Challenge List Thread

Gobear's 7th Annual Sci-Fi/ Fantasy Challenge

First-Time Viewing:: 22
Blu-Ray:: 9
DVD:: 11
TV: 18
Netflix:: 4
YouTube/ Viooz: 7
Theatrical:: 2
Commentaries Listened To:

June 30
1. On a Clear Day You Can See Forever (1970) DVD--. Barbra Streisand plays a good-hearted kook with a green thumb and a touch of ESP who under hypnosis recalls a past life in Regency England. Barbara is fabulous as always, although casting Yves Montand as the romantic lead was a mistake IMO. Fun movie nonetheless.
2. The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones (2013) TV--I really wanted to like this flick because the idea of the realm of the Fae living behind the mortal world is very much my kind of film, but this just was a muddle.

July 1
3. Upside Down (2013) Blu-Ray--. Fascinating premise with amazing special effects, but the story of star-crossed lovers is lame.
4. Conan the Barbarian (1982) DVD--. James Earl Jones and Arnold--doesn't get better than this.

July 2
5. Battle Beneath the Earth (1966) YouTube--. Good old-fashioned, low budget, Cold War paranoia with China ("Red China" in 60s parlance) as the villain digging tunnels beneath the Pacific to attack the US.
6. The Day of the Triffids (1962) YouTube--."And I really got hot when I saw Janette Scott fight a Triffid that spits poison and kills. . . " Basic setup: carnivorous plants from outer space attack humans who have mostly been blinded by a meteor storm. Howard Keel sadly does not sing.
7. The World's End (2013) TV--I love this movie more and more every time I watch it. It really is a fitting statement on middle age and the futility of trying to recapture one's youth.

July 3
8. The Truman Show (1998) TV--An underrated classic. Jim Carrey knocks it out of the park as the titular character, a tragic schmoe who is the unwitting star of his own 24/7 reality show. Ed Harris is amazing as the showrunner Christof, the god of poor Truman's TV studio universe.
9. My Super Ex-Girlfriend (2006) TV--One would think Uma Thurman is above this material. It's a comedy that isn't funny and is decidedly anti-female.
10. Snowpiercer (2013) Theater--Holy crap, what a great film! Tilda Swinton's "Be a shoe" speech is pretty heavy handed, but the social commentary works, plus it's a damn good story.

July 4
11. Independence Day (1998) TV--Mandatory viewing

July 5
12. Oblivion (2013) TV--The plot was predictable with a hokey ending, but there's also Morgan Freeman being awesome.
13. Blade (1998) DVD--. Before Wesley Snipes started phoning it in.

July 6
14. The Avengers (2012) Blu-Ray--. The Gone With the Wind of Marvel comic book movies.
15. Attack of the 50-Foot Woman (1958) TV--A kitsch classic. Utterly awful in every way

July 7
16. Knights of Badassdom (2013) DVD--I loved this! Sure, it's a bit pokey in spots, but this is such a joyful, affectionate satire on LARPing and fantasy fandom that any genre fan can relate to easily.
17. The LEGO Movie (2014) Blu-Ray--Everything is awesome about this movie. The most imaginative and entertaining film I've seen in a long time.
18. R.I.P.D. (2013) Blu-Ray--Fun but forgettable supernatural buddy film. Jeff Bridges seems to be doing his Rooster Cogburn role again
19. Damn Yankees (1958) DVD--Tab Hunter does hunky blonde well, but it's Ray Walston and the utterly awesome Gwen Verdon who steal the show.

July 8
20. Jodorowsky's Dune (2013) TV--A fascinating look at a film that never happened; Alejandro Jodorowsky's version of Frank Herbert's Dune. His version would have been amazing, although if David Lynch, an equally talented and idiosyncratic director, couldn't translate the novel to screen successfully (and the SyFy miniseries isn't much better), then it probably can't be done.
21. Night of the Comet (1984) DVD--. It's like the filmmakers captured the early 80s in a bubble.

July 9
22. The Valley of Gwangi (1969) DVD--. Cowboys vs dinosaurs brought to life by Ray Harryhausen's magic.
23. The 7th Voyage of Sinbad (1958) TV--More Ray Harryhausen creatures in the first of his Sinbad pictures, this one starring the handsome yet wooden Kerwin Matthews.

July 10
24. Thor: The Dark World (2013) TV--Terrific effects but a lackluster story.

July 11
25. Kronos (1957) YouTube--. Despite the hokey dialogue and the dated FX, the basic story of an extraterrestrial machine absorbing the Earth's energy sources and threatening the end of civilization could use a big-budget remake.
26. Special Bulletin (1983) YouTube--. The early 80s saw a heightening of nuclear paranoia with Reagan's election and Russia's invasion of Afghanistan, and this TV-movie is an eerie depiction of a nuclear incident precipitated by terrorists taking hostages at a Navy base. 30 years later, the same fears exist; just the identity of the terrorists have changed.

July 12
27. Without Warning (1994) YouTube-- One of the aspects of Youtube I love is that it points me to movies I never knew existed. This is another faux newscast, this time about aliens attacking the Earth.
28. Creature from the Black Lagoon (1954) TV--The last of the classic Universal monsters,the Gill Man still elicits shudders today.

July 13
29. Gravity (2013) TV--Absolutely fantastic visual effects that truly deserved an Oscar, but the rest of the film was mediocre.
30. Riddick (2013) TV--I've enjoyed the previous Riddick films, and I really wanted to like this, but an action film should have action instead of endless chitchat and bounty hunter conversations.

July 14
Wild Card #1
31. The Swimmer (1967) Blu-Ray--. A spectacular drama of a man trapped inside his own delusions finally forced to confront his real life.

July 15
32. Judge Dredd (1995) TV--A supremely silly popcorn flick perfectly suited for a rainy evening, but Rob Schneider really is irritating. No wonder his career went to hell. Maybe he's in an office somewhere, making copies.

July 16
33. Crack in the World (1965) Blu-Ray--. Another film I would love to see this remade today with a bigger budget, especially less reliance on stock footage that doesn't match the scene. A color film switches to B/W because the filmmakers used footage of the 1963 Surtsey eruption. Dana Andrews sends a nuke into the earth's mantle to extract geothermal energy, and inadvertently creates a crack in the Earth's crust that threatens to wipe out the planet.
34. The Last Days on Mars (2013) Netflix--Reminds me somewhat on the Doctor Who episode, "Water of Mars", with a similar plot: infectious agent contaminates mission crew and turns them into monsters. Thoroughly enjoyed this.

July 17
35. 전우치 (Jun U Chi) (2009) Netflix--A hoot of a movie. Jun U Chi is a mischievous wizard from the Chosun era who is transported to modern-day Seoul to capture a gaggle of demons.
36. Scanners (1981) Blu-Ray--. Taking my new Criterion Blu-Ray out for a spin. I can't believe how good this 30+-year-old film looks. Still an effectively scary movie.

July 18
37. The Man Who Fell to Earth (1976) DVD--. I'm glad I bought the Criterion disc before Studio Canal yanked the rights; it's a mind-bending film in the best way. Bowie shows he can really act playing an alien who becomes all too human.

July 19
38. The Cremators (1972) YouTube-- In the right hands, this adaptation of the classic sci-fi short story "Dune Roller" could have been a fun cult classic, like "The Monolith Monsters", but this is just ghastly. The plot involves scientists trying to defeat an extraterrestrial rock that hunts and incinerates humans; an idea that deserves a better treatment than this.
39. Monty Python and the Holy Grail (1979) DVD--. A wonderful palate cleanser to eradicate the taste of the last flick.
40. Revenge of the Creature (1956) TV--not a bad sequel, but it's clear that the producers were cutting corners. John Agar is one of the 7 deadly warning signs of a B-picture.

July 20
41. The Thirteenth Floor (1999) TV--Overshadowed by The Matrix at the time, this movie handles the idea of artificial realities better to a smooth noir beat.

July 21
42. Transcendence (2014) Blu-Ray--Posthuman transformation and the melding of humanity and AI are scifi themes I really enjoy, and I had high hopes for Transcendence. The movie is more of a thriller than a cerebral exploration of cybernetics and the next step for the human race. And can Johnny Depp stop talking in a monotone?

July 22
43. 20 Million Miles to Earth (1957) TV--Ray Harryhausen, Italian style. This is probably my least favorite of his films, but the Ymir is a memorable creature.

July 23
44. Deep Impact (1998) TV--I like this much better than Armageddon, released the same year. Morgan Freeman and Robert Duvall beat Bruce Willis and Ben Affleck every time.
45. Los Últimos Días (2013) Netflix--Thoroughly enjoyable post-apocalypse adventure flick. A worldwide mental plague kills anyone who ventures out in the open air, so humanity has become trapped inside buildings and underground. A software engineer sets out to find his girlfriend accompanied by a jerk from HR. The plot finds ingenious ways to allow the two to travel through Barcelona's tunnels and buildings without having to risk venturing into the deadly outdoors.

July 24
46. Oh God! (1977) Viooz--. John Denver was definitely a better singer than an actor, but he's enjoyable in this sweet fable about an ordinary man called to be a prophet by the Almighty as played by George Burns.
Wild Card #2
47. All that Jazz (1979) DVD--. Jessica Lange as Death and the hallucinatory dance numbers give a surreal quality to Bob Fosse's biopic.
48. A Bug's Life (1998) DVD--. A hilarious Pixar classic.

July 28
49. The Creature Walks Among Us (1958) TV--A wheezy conclusion to the series.

July 29
50. Noah (2014) Blu-Ray--Darren Aronofsky re-imagines the Old Testament story as an epic fantasy with parallels for our own misuse of the riches of our planet.

July 30
51. Abbott and Costello Go to Mars (1953) DVD--. The boys actually end up on Venus, where they meet some man-hungry space girls. It's pretty clear the series was sputtering to an end, but this is still A+C, so it's always worth watching.
52. Sharknado 2: The Second One (2014) TV--Usually, the self-aware bad movie is painful to sit through, but Sharknado 2 hit all the right notes of celebrity cameos and cheesy jokes. If only they had gotten Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert. . .

July 31
53. Elysium (2013) TV--Neil Blomkamp is mining the same territory of rich vs. poor and racial discrimination as in District 9, but it's still an enthralling action film, albeit with a social message.
54. MST3K: Gamera Vs. Barugon (1966/1991) Netflix--Sandy Frank!
55. Guardians of the Galaxy (2014) Theater--A perfect summer blockbuster with some terrific performances, particularly the voice work of Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel. and excellent FX.
