The 8th Annual Sci-Fi/Fantasy Challenge List Thread

The 8th Annual Sci-Fi/Fantasy Challenge List Thread

Discussion Thread

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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


How to win a prize

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


Audio:

Sci-fi/Fantasy Radio

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

Re: The 8th Annual Sci-Fi/Fantasy Challenge List Thread

8th Annual Sci-Fi/Fantasy Challenge List

Sci-Fi/Fantasy Challenge History - 2008: 32; 2009: 82; 2010: 66; 2011: 45; 2012: 36; 2013: 84.25; 2014: 54; 2015 Goal: 85 (Probably too lofty a goal)

Note: I am using the "traditional" counting method - Each film counts as 1; 2 hours of television content counts as 1. I prefer this method for several reasons. The main one being it makes it easier to compare how I'm doing to previous years.

Re: The 8th Annual Sci-Fi/Fantasy Challenge List Thread

The Eighth Annual July Sci-Fi/Fantasy Challenge


List Finalized


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

June 30th (after dusk)
1. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (Chris Columbus, 2001 / United Kingdom)
--- Harry Potter (Daniel Radcliffe) finds out that he's a wizard and is whisked from his dreary existence to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Lays the groundwork for the series and introduces many major players well despite not quite capturing the wonderment of the book.
2. Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: 1.1, "Emissary: Part 1" / 1.2, "Emissary: Part 2" (1993 / United States / Netflix Instant)
--- Captain Benjamin Sisko (Avery Brooks) reluctantly takes command of a new Federation station guarding newly liberated Bajor. Soon, he finds himself wrapped up in Bajoran religion and a wormhole. It's a good start to a series and goes darker than most Star Trek episodes.

July 1st
3. Without Warning (Robert Iscove, 1994 / United States / YouTube)*
--- A Loni Anderson flick is interrupted by news reports about meteors falling to Earth and the response as things get odder. I'm a sucker for mockumentaries, especially fake newscasts, so I really enjoyed this. Added bonus: Philip Baker Hall and John de Lancie.
4. Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (Chris Columbus, 2002 / United Kingdom / Extended Cut)
--- Harry's second year at Hogwarts is plagued by a mysterious monster that petrifies students. The second film is darker than the first and is able to settle into its world more quickly. Everything looks and feels better.
5. War of the Satellites (Roger Corman, 1958 / United States / YouTube)*
--- Human exploration of the universe draws the ire of aliens who use their considerable technology to hamper the space program. It's fun Corman schlock with some of the least convincing spaceships sets in a movie.

July 2nd
6. Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: 1.3, "Past Prologue" / 1.4, "A Man Alone" (1993 / United States / Netflix Instant)
--- These episodes expand our understanding of several characters. Kira (Nana Visitor) is confronted by her past and has to make choices about her loyalties. Odo (Rene Auberjonois) is accused of murder and endures a lot of hate and suspicion. These characters are angrier and more damaged than other Star Trek protagonists. I like it!
7. Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: 1.5, "Babel" / 1.6, "Captive Pursuit" (1993 / United States / Netflix Instant)*
--- Two standard Star Trek plots! First, a new virus plagues the station, and everyone has to race against the clock to save themselves. Then Chief O'Brien (Colm Meaney) gets his own episode when he befriends a new alien and questions the Prime Directive. I'm digging this show!
8. Robinson Crusoe on Mars (Byron Haskins, 1964 / United States)
--- An accident maroons Commander Kit Draper (Paul Mantee) on Mars, and he is forced to adapt to the alien landscape. His only companion is Mona the monkey. The film looks amazing and perfectly melds the adventure story with 60s science fiction.

July 3rd
9. The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms (Eugène Lourié, 1953 / United States)
--- Atomic tests wake up a frozen dinosaur that terrorizes the Eastern seaboard. The dinosaur is diseased and cannot be destroyed by conventional means. I'm a fan of dinosaur films, and this one is compelling both as a dinosaur flick and a prototype kaiju film.

July 4th
10. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (Alfonso Cuarón, 2004 / United Kingdom)
--- Harry's third year at Hogwarts introduces several new characters. Harry and his friends must figure out who to trust when Sirius Black arrives on the scene. This film feels more cinematic and stylized; it's an improvement on the previous films.
11a. The Adventures of Superman: 2.7, "Superman in Exile" / 2.8, "A Ghost for Scotland Yard (1953 / United States)*
--- Superman is irradiated, leaving Metropolis open to the criminal element. Then he has to contend with a supposed ghost in England.
11b. He-Man and the Masters of the Universe: 1.40, "House of Shokoti: Part 1 / 1.41, "House of Shokoti: Part 2" (1983 / United States)*
--- He-Man and his entourage investigate a mysterious pyramid and must defeat the evil sorceress that lives inside.
12a. He-Man and the Masters of the Universe: 1.42, "Double Edged Sword / 1.43, "The Mystery of Man-E-Faces" (1983 / United States)*
--- He-Man goes up against Trap Jaw in search of rare element. Then he tells the story of Man-E-Faces's redemption.
12b. He-Man and the Masters of the Universe: 1.44, "The Region of Ice / 1.45, "Orko's Missing Magic" (1983 / United States)*
--- When the royal family goes missing, Orko has to rescue Prince Adam so they can search for a princess. Next, Orko loses his magic in a freak accident, and the group goes to Omiros to get it back.
13. The 3 Worlds of Gulliver (Jack Sher, 1960 / United States)*
--- Lemuel Gulliver (Kerwin Mathews) visits a series of unusual island nations after going overboard. Despite good intentions, he keeps getting caught up in the petty politics of each island. I like the novel, and this captures some of its spirit.

July 5th
14. The Lost World (Timothy Bond, 1992 / United States)
--- To regain credibility, Prof. Challenger (John Rhys-Davies) organizes an expedition to Africa to find a secluded, prehistoric plateau. David Warner and Eric McCormack go along for the ride. It's a cheap, cheesy adaptation and features some of the least convincing dinosaurs in a movie.
15. Return to the Lost World (Timothy Bond, 1992 / United States)
--- Challenger and crew are summoned back to the lost world when a greedy scientist threatens to destroy it. The only real reason to watch this (besides the adventure story trappings) is the animosity between Rhys-Davies and Warner; they play bombastic rivals perfectly.
16a. The Adventures of Superman: 2.10, "The Face and the Voice / 2.11, "The Man in the Lead Mask (1953 / United States)*
--- Both episodes revolved around plastic surgery. First, a man is made to look like Superman, then a criminal peddles surgery to his cohorts.
16b. The Adventures of Superman: 2.12, "Panic in the Sky / 2.13, "The Machine That Could Plot Crimes (1953 / United States)*
--- Superman must save the world from an asteroid in a much adapted episode. Then the voice of Winnie the Pooh makes a computer that is used to plan crimes.
17a. The Adventures of Superman: 2.14, "Jungle Devil" / 2.15, "My Friend Superman" (1953 / United States)*
--- Superman goes to the jungle in search of a scientist. Next, a cafe owner is used as a pawn to get Supes out of the country.
17b. The Adventures of Superman: 2.16, "The Clown Who Cried" / 2.17, "The Boy Who Hated Superman (1954 / United States)*
--- A criminal takes the place of a clown to steal charity funds. Then a boy has to learn that his criminal uncle is duplicitous.
18. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (Mike Newell, 2005 / United Kingdom)
--- Harry's fourth year finds him dealing with mysterious nightmares and the Triwizard Tournament. This is the most disappointing installment so far. There is too much story crammed into this one, despite leaving out house elves and classroom antics. The ending wrap-ups (there are multiple) breathlessly dump politics and history on the audience.
19. Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (David Yates, 2007 / United Kingdom)*
--- Harry's fifth year finds him ostracized for proclaiming that Voldemort has returned. The deplorable Dolores Umbridge takes over Hogwarts, and nastiness ensues. While a definite improvement after the last one, this one also retains so much of the story and so many characters that it's force to hurtle toward the end at breakneck speeds.

July 6th
20. Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: 1.7, "Q-Less / 1.8, "Dax" (1993 / United States / Netflix Instant)*
--- Q and Vash both show up on the station to reek havoc and connect this to the larger Star Trek world. Then aliens show up to arrest Dax for a crime, and we learn more about how the Trills work.
21. Mystery Science Theater 3000: 10.3, "The Pumaman (1980)" (1998 / United States / YouTube)*
--- Mike and the robots lampoon a terrible bit of 80s cheese about a white dude who has the ancient powers of the puma. He has thwart Donald Pleasence who has an golden mask. Also, Pearl has a party.
22. Destination Inner Space (Francis D. Lyon, 1966 / United States / Amazon Prime)*
--- Scientists and military cliches in a underwater research facility come into contact with an alien. The alien harasses them. There's lots of underwater footage. It's boring and not much fun.
23. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (David Yates, 2009 / United Kingdom)*
--- Harry and Dumbledore investigate how Voldemort retains his power and what his plans involve. Draco and Snape act very dodgy. Gosh, this one is very dark even though it omits a lot of the violence of the book. I enjoyed this one despite another rush to awkwardly get through as much plot as possible.

July 7th
24. Killers from Space (W. Lee Wilder, 1954 / United States / YouTube)*
--- During nuclear weapons testing, Dr. Doug Martin (Peter Graves) disappears after a plane crash only to reappear with a strange scar. Soon, he starts exhibiting odd behaviors. Is he a Commie? Typical b-movie schlock that helped me get through some book processing.
25. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 (David Yates, 2010 / United Kingdom)
26. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 (David Yates, 2011 / United Kingdom)
--- The last installments in the Harry Potter franchise wrap-up the story of the Boy Who Lived. Nine years of stunt casting, cameo hero shots, increasingly desaturated colors, and rambling exposition come together in a wave of emotion. Even the awfulness of the fourth film can be excused in light of this triumphant end.

July 8th
27. Invasion of the Saucer Men (Edward L. Cahn, 1957 / United States / YouTube)*
--- Teenagers, drunkards, and livestock are menaced by aliens. Meanwhile, military officials try to cover everything up. My favorite parts had to do with the blustering military commander and his PR man.

July 9th
28. Were the World Mine (Tom Gustafson, 2008 / United States / Netflix Instant)*
--- Inspired by A Midsummer Night's Dream, gay teen Timothy (Tanner Cohen) makes a love potion that turns most of the people in his town gay. This gets him the boy of his dreams but also throws everything into chaos. Wendy Robie plays the English teacher who may have magical powers and has to get Timothy to give up his Puckish ways.
29. The Incredible Petrified World (Jerry Warren, 1957 / United States / YouTube)*
--- A quartet of people are lost on an undersea expedition and find themselves in a series of caved deep underground. Phyllis Coates plays a very shrill reporter who adds a bit of color to bland group. I think some of the underwater footage of an octopus and shark fighting was also used in The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms.
30. Dune (David Lynch, 1984 / United States)*
--- When his family is put in control of Dune and the Spice production, Paul Atreides (Kyle MacLachlan) is thrust into political intrigue that causes the downfall of his house. He escapes to learn the ways of the desert planet and fulfill prophecies. Perhaps my reasoning was marred by several cape cods, but I loved this movie. It's so weird for the sake of weirdness.
31. Young Ones (Jake Paltrow, 2014 / South Africa / Netflix Instant)*
--- Farmer Ernest Holm (Michael Shannon) and his son Jerome (Kodi Smit-McPhee) deal with a severe drought that has devastated much of the land. This didn't get very good reviews, but I thought it built an interesting world and explored a plausible future problem.

July 10th
32a. Buck Rogers: "Ch. 1 - Tomorrow's World" / "Ch. 2 - Tragedy on Saturn" (1939 / United States)*
32b. Buck Rogers: "Ch. 3 - The Enemy's Stronghold" / "Ch. 4 - The Sky Patrol" (1939 / United States)*
--- After being frozen for 500 year, Buck Rogers (Buster Crabbe) and his kid sidekick (Jackie Moran) wake up only to be embroiled in a resistance against the evil Killer Kane (Anthony Warde).

July 11th
33. The Avengers (Joss Whedon, 2012 / United States)*
--- After Loki (Tom Hiddleston) returns and declares war on the world, Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) assembles all those heroes from those movies. I've seen this a number of times, and it never stops being a fun ride.

July 12th - Happy Birthday to me!
34. Unknown World (Terry O. Morse, 1951 / United States / YouTube)*
--- A group of scientists financed by a newspaper mogul go in search of an underground retreat. Most of the scientists have different political leanings and immediately clash. Some of the film was shot in Carlsbad Caverns, making for glorious backgrounds.

July 13th
35. Invasion U.S.A. (Alfred E. Green, 1952 / United States / YouTube)*
--- Five people walk into a bar and have a massive hallucination about a Communist invasion of the United States. The film has all the subtlety of a WWII propaganda poster, and the quintet's anti-government (or simply apathetic) actions lead to spectacular deaths.
36. Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: 1.9, "The Passenger / 1.10, "Move Along Home" (1993 / United States / Netflix Instant)*
--- An insidious criminal devises a way to stave off death and thwart the law. Then Quark cheats a new race and gets Sisko and others stuck in a dangerous game.
37. It Conquered the World (Roger Corman, 1956 / United States / YouTube)*
--- Dr. Anderson (Lee Van Cleef) aids a dying alien species from Venus to conquer the Earth, thinking they will bring peace. Peter Graves plays the dashing scientist bent on defeating the aliens. Low-budget fun from the master of the art-form.
38a. Buck Rogers: "Ch. 5 - The Phantom Plane" / "Ch. 6 - The Unknown Command" (1939 / United States)*
38b. Buck Rogers: "Ch. 7 - Primitive Urge" / "Ch. 8 - Revolt of the Zuggs" (1939 / United States)*
--- Buck Rogers deals with many roadblocks thrown up by Killer Kane's men to secure a treaty with Saturn. Unfortunately, he is captured by Kane, and it's up to Buddy to save him.
39. Godzilla vs. Biollante (1989, Kazuki Ohmori / Japan)*
--- After his daughter is killed due to corporate espionage, Dr. Shiragami (Kôji Takahashi) develops a plant-monster that fights Godzilla after he is awakened due to corporate espionage. The monsters look cool. The accents are inexplicable.

July 14th
40. The Maze (William Cameron Menzies, 1953 / United States / YouTube)*
--- Kitty Murray (Veronica Hurst) travels to Scotland after her fiance (Richard Carlson) leaves to attend to the family estate after his reclusive uncle dies. There is a mysterious maze on the estate. Everyone seems to overreact to a goofy monster.
41. Odin: Photon Space Sailor Starlight (Ôdîn - Kôshi hobune stâraito) (Takeshi Shirato, 1985 / Japan)*
--- The crew of the Starlight responses to a distress call and finds a woman who seems to know the way to a mythical planet. When they decide to journey into the unknown, they find an evil, sentient computer. There are some great, psychedelic sequences.
42. Battle Los Angles (Jonathan Liebesman, 2011 / United States)*
--- Aaron Eckhart leads a group of generic marines against a formidable alien force. Perhaps my bar is set too low, but I liked the film well enough. Michelle Rodriguez shows up in a Michelle Rodriguez part, and Eckhart acts the hell out of a tired script.

July 15th
43a. Buck Rogers: "Ch. 9 - Bodies Without Minds" / "Ch. 10 - Broken Barriers" (1939 / United States)*
43b. Buck Rogers: "Ch. 11 - A Prince in Bondage" / "Ch. 12 - War of the Planets" (1939 / United States)*
--- After being rescued by Buddy, Buck Rogers and the inhabitants of the Hidden City launch one last onslaught against Killer Kane.
44. Cloud Atlas (The Wachowskis & Tom Tkywer, 2012 / United States)
--- Six stories spanning centuries are interwoven together and connected by actors and themes. Several stories take place in the far future when corporations rule and then after the fall of civilization. It's one of my favorite films from the last few years. Every time I watch, I see something new.
45. Them! (Gordon Douglas, 1954 / United States)
--- Giant ants mutated from nuclear bomb testing attack people in the desert. Scientists and law enforcement track down the colonies and destroy them. Everything about this film is awesome!

July 16th
46. The Phantom Planet (William Marshall, 1961 / United States / YouTube)*
--- Astronaut Frank Chapman crashes on a small planet and is miniaturized by the atmosphere. When he meets the locals, they condemn him to stay with them and jettison his spaceship. There were lots of tonal shifts and too much hokeyness to really enjoy.
47. Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace (George Lucas, 1999 / United States)
--- Two uninteresting Jedi knights must protect a queen with a robot voice. Along the way, they pick up a CGI creature and a small boy - two of the most annoying characters of all time. Yes, it's just as bad and nonsensical as you remember.

July 17th
48. Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: 1.11, "The Nagus / 1.12, "Vortex" (1993 / United States / Netflix Instant)*
--- Quark's life is complicated when he becomes the head of the Ferengi. A criminal from the Gamma Quadrant tells Odo that he knows other changelings.
49. Sleeping Beauty (Clyde Geronimi, 1959 / United States)
--- Princess Aurora is cursed by the evil Maleficent and goes into hiding. When the curse comes true, it's up to Prince Phillips and trio of fairies to save her. This is one of my favorite Disney films, and one of the most beautiful.
50. Chappie (Neill Blomkamp, 2015 / United States)*
--- When a new A.I. is downloaded into a police robot, it gets caught up in corporate politics and the criminal element of South Africa. This is a weird film that completely held my attention.
51. Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones (George Lucas, 2002 / United States)
--- So there's a mysterious clone army and a droid army manufactured by bugs, and both serve as a backdrop to the least convincing romance between people who cannot act. It's so stupid. Everything is so stupid.

July 18th
52. Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith (George Lucas, 2005 / United States)
--- Several groups of monotone idiots are manipulated by an obviously evil politician. Most of the idiots are thankfully killed and one catches on fire. Thankfully, this is the end of the stupidity. I hope they get the next film right.

July 19th
53. World Without End (Edward Bernds, 1956 / United States)
--- A space expedition gets caught in a time wave and is transported into the distant future. The scientists meet the weaken remnants of humanity and spout imperialistic machismo at them.
54a. Cowboy Bebop: 1.1, "Asteroid Blues" / 1.2, "Stray Dog Strut" (1998 / Japan / English dub)*
54b. Cowboy Bebop: 1.3, "Honky Tonk Women" / 1.4, "Gateway Shuffle" (1998 / Japan / English dub)*
--- The crew of the Bebop go after a plethora of bounties and recruit a sexy lady! This was a blind buy, and I'm lovin' it!
55a. Cowboy Bebop: 1.5, "Ballad of Fallen Angels" / 1.6, "Sympathy for the Devil (1998 / Japan / English dub)*
55b. Robotech - The Macross Saga: 1.1, "Boobytrap" / 1.2, "Countdown" (1985 / Japan)*
--- More anime! The episodes of Bebop are very dark. The episodes of Robotech are wonderfully 80s.

July 20th
56. Target Earth (Sherman A. Rose, 1954 / United States / YouTube)*
--- Richard Denning and Kathleen Crowley wake up in a deserted city. After finding two drunks, they realize that killer robots have invaded Earth. The robot (there was one suit) is silly, and the characters are stock. Fun, compete schlock.
57. The Ape Man (William Beaudine, 1943 / United States / YouTube)*
--- Crazy Dr. Brewster (Bela Lugosi) has transformed himself into a hideous ape-man! Now, he needs spinal fluid to reverse the situation. Lugosi does his thing, and Wallace Ford plays an incredulous reporter. I love these low-budget, "we have an ape suit" flicks.
58. Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: 1.13, "Battle Lines" / 1.14, "The Storyteller" (1993 / United States / Netflix Instant)*
59a. Robotech - The Macross Saga: 1.3, "Space Fold" / 1.4, "The Long Wait" (1985 / Japan)*
59b. Robotech - The Macross Saga: 1.5, "Transformation" / 1.6, "Blitzkrieg" (1985 / Japan)*
--- The series kicks off and establishes the civilians and military in space plot. Teenage pilot Rick Hunter makes some hard decisions.
60a. Cowboy Bebop: 1.7, "Heavy Metal Queen" / 1.8, "Waltz for Venus" (1998 / Japan / English dub)*
60b. Cowboy Bebop: 1.9, "Jamming with Edward" / 1.10, "Ganymede Elegy" (1998 / Japan / English dub)*
--- This series is fast becoming my new favorite thing. Spike and Jet pick up a rambunctious kid hacker. Some heavy themes sprinkled throughout the levity and action.

July 21st
61. Renaissance (Christian Volckman, 2006 / France / English dub / Netflix Instant)*
--- In the near future, police detective Karas investigates the kidnapping of a scientist who works for a shadowy genetics company. I wanted to enjoy this more than I did. While the animation style is interesting and even occasionally striking, it often distracts from the story - which is pretty predictable.
62. Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: 1.15, "Progess" / 1.16, "If Wishes Were Horses" (1993 / United States / Netflix Instant)*

July 23rd
63. Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: 1.17, "The Forsaken" / 1.18, "Dramatis Personae" (1993 / United States / Netflix Instant)*

Wife's Thoughts In Blue
- July 1st -
1.)
The Fifth Element (1997) (Blu-Ray)
My Thoughts: Decided to start out with this little classic from my childhood. On a release note yes I know the Best Buy Pop Art version does have the original blu-ray master and not the newer one, but as an upgrade to my VHS copy of The Fifth Element it was more than adequate. The movie it's self is a near masterpiece, the visuals, sets, actors even the soundtrack is something I spent a lot of time listening to back int he late 90's. I loved it's scope, it's scantily clad female lead. I might be getting a bit hyperbolic here but this was the Star Wars of my youth. Not sure if I would give it a 5 out of 5 if it had come out today but it was easily one of the best movies of '97. Can't wait to show it to my daughter in a few years and start yelling at her "Aziz Light!".
(5 out of 5)
- July 2nd -
2.) - 8.5)
Fringe S01E01-14 (2008-2009) (Blu-Ray)
My Thoughts: Fantastic series and I am loving this revisit. Funny how insignificant most of this season one stuff is in the grand scheme of the series. Can't wait for less John Scott and more William Bell. The first few episodes are a bit formuleic but it was essentially X-Files The Next Generation, I wonder now since X-Files is coming back if it will be more of the same or if it will take some notes from Fringe...
(3.5 - 4.5 out of 5)
- July 3rd -
9.) - 16.5)
Fringe S01E15-S02E09 (2009) (Blu-Ray)
My Thoughts: Season 1 ended with a bang it is a bit of a shame we had to back track so much from the main plot here for pacing but watching it straight through isn't so frustrating as I imagine it was watching it broadcast every week. The quotient of monster of the week episodes seemed pretty high here in the first part of season 2 as well. Still a fantastic show though and it's not like I don't like monster of the week episodes it's just this is one of those shows where you can't help but think about all of the awesome in the pipeline. Love all the little hints at what is to come that I probably missed the first time around and of course Nimoy but my favorite part has to be the cough and you'll miss it moment about Fringe division's predecessor being the X-Files!
(3 - 5 out of 5)
- July 4th -
17.5)
Glen And Randa (1971) (DVD)*
My Thoughts: Well, that was depressing. Post apocalyptic Idaho is about a fun as you would imagine, but at least everyone is really friendly... Glen and Randa are of the generation born just after WW3 resets the world. They set out to find "the city" and the rest of the movie is pretty much them walking through the wilderness. It is an interesting departure from your normal post apocalyptic story, there is really no villains here, it's almost like a post apocalyptic Blue Lagoon, with less well adjusted leads. Just incase I have describes something that interest you be forewarned that this movie is very very sloooooow.... Also don't be swayed by the X rating, just some causal nudity in the first 10 or so minutes of the film. Not an apocalypse I plan to revisit anytime soon.
(2 out of 5)
- July 5th -
18.)
Wayward Pines S01E07 (2015) (Internet)*
My Thoughts: Post scrip flip Ethan must take down a group of residents that have decided terrorism is the answer. Terrorism as a plot device in sci-fi shows is becoming a little trite at this point, there has got to be a better way of unfolding the story. Not one of the better episodes but this show is fascinating to think about. I love pondering this universe this is set in and imagining how I would live in it. I have got to read the books after this is over.
(3.5 out of 5)
- July 6th -
18.5) - 25.5)
Fringe S02E09-S02E23 (2009-2010) (Blu-Ray)
My Thoughts: Now this is Fringe hitting it's stride. The 80's throwback episode, Alternate Fringe Division, Olivia vs. Olivia! Season 2 closes with an astounding cliffhanger, a Sarah Chronicles season 2 level cliffhanger and I still have 3 more seasons to go! I often wonder how some shows might appeal to larger audiences and others not... to think what one or two more seasons of FlashForward could have been. Fantastic series, if for some strange reason you haven't seen it and some astronomical coincidence you are actually reading this right now, you need to watch Fringe. But alas I know only I will ever reread this, especially since it is a multi series review in the midst of a huge page of movie reviews.
(3.5 - 5 out of 5)
- July 7th -
26.5.)
Ender's Game (2013) (Blu-Ray)*
My Thoughts: I really enjoyed this book when I was younger, I read it and it's dreadful sequels multiple times even. And despite nearly universal meh for this project I held out hope that it might spark the same spirit as the book. Unfortunately it did not. There seemed just too much story to fit into this movie, even at almost 2 hours it seemed to progress with breakneck pace. Everything I loved about the book was lost in service of expedient exposition. The battle room, the training, the learning, the pauses, everything that made this property real was truncated to the point where it lost it's impact. One thing I will say is that the set design/special effects were spot on. Wasn't totally onboard with all of the actors but if we had just this exact same movie with closer to a 3 hour running time it could have been ok. Or maybe as a miniseries with the same special effects. As it stands though it is a passable narrative with enough eye candy not to be completely boring but lacking in substance to the point of being insignificant.

Fringe S03E01-S03E12 (2010-2011) (Blu-Ray)
My Thoughts: Fringe had some difficulties the first few seasons with their "big bad", sure the other universe was always looming but no villain was really all that threatening to our main characters. That is until they bought in Walternate and Faulivia. These doppelgangers really took it up a notch and provided for some extremely enjoyable television. Also it is surprising how much I had forgotten about this show in the last 4 years, it seems just as fresh now as it did the first time around, early onset alzheimer's? I wonder what my taught will think of this when I show it to her in 10+ years, will it be horribly dated? Or still ahead of the curve?

Lucy (2014) (Blu-Ray)*
My Thoughts: You must be strong with the suspension of disbelief with this one but if you are it can be quite enjoyable. This highly stylized tale from The Fifth Element's Luc Besson is like high def candy for your tv, it is beautiful. The plot revolves around Scarlett Johansson who after accidentally investing a massive amount of mind altering drugs starts to become increasingly intelligent to the point of transcendentality. For a movie about being smart it is kind of dumb, but it is so fun. Next time I watch this I plan to do it hammered, I feel like this movie would really lend it's self to that particular experience.
(4 out of 5)
My Wife's Thoughts: Pretty good, I was surprised, I kinda tell Luc Besson’s movie. Surprisingly good, Scarlett Johansson is hot. Why Richard has that cp-whatever to begin with? Beginning is choto mysterious.

Wayward Pines S01E08 (2015) (Internet)*
My Thoughts: I realized about mid episode that this is the second post apocalyptic property set in Idaho I have watched this month, what are the chances? So the town is going to pot and the audience is left asking how Pilcher had suceeded for this long, but of course he hasn't, this isn't the first time Wayward Pines fizzled out. With only 2 episodes left I don't think I am going to get to satisfactory explore this universe to my liking. There is no time left to explore the broken world, it is going to all be "this is why you can't be terrorists". But hey there is always time for a few more twists.

Fringe S03E12-S04E11 (2011-2012) (Blu-Ray)
My Thoughts: When I started Fringe this time around I could only remember up to the end of season 3 and now I see why. Whereas the first three seasons of Fringe create an awesome beginning to end story season 4 is sort of like Fringe remix. The idea behind season 4 is let's take Peter out of this timeline where he basically won and put him in one where he never existed. There is still interesting TV here and of course characters we love but it's just not as compelling as it used to be. I am liking the inter-dimensional team work though.

Death Race (2008) (Blu-Ray)*
My Thoughts: Vapid action flick tries to be cult exploitation but misses the mark. I actually had a glimmer of hope there at the beginning when David Carradine started talking but that was snuffed out soon enough. It's odd as I tend to like Paul W. S. Anderson films but this one felt so brain dead, like something you would see on whatever lame men oriented cable network. Cliche jokes, cars go smash, blah blah blah, I'll take Death Race 2000 please.
(2.5 out of 5)
My Wife's Thoughts: This is better than I expected but choto too much violence and unrealistic. And that lady in the movie she seems always bitch... intelligent bitch. I like the ending a lot I can give them 4 star.

The Aftermath (1982) (DVD)*
My Thoughts: An ultra low budget Planet Of The Apes, where the apes are a rape-y biker gang and the astronauts are much closer to their scientist counterparts than their action hero ones. Props for having a young Sid Haig but every other actor seemed just a little off. Also I like that they actually go to the city instead of meandering around the outskirts of town in an effort to save the production budget. Some nice effects here and interesting scenery, nothing is what you would call seamless but it is at least an appreciated effort, especially after watching Glen And Randa. Also what is up with astronauts who come back after the apocalypse always wanting to nail post nuke girls. I mean you know hygiene standards have got to be way down after the fall of society. A weird but interesting entry into the genre, I can't quite recommend it but if you have seen everything else this is upper tier bad. A note on the release, I bought the burn on demand VCI version which is extremely dark and did glitch on me several times.

Fringe S04E12-22 (2012) (Blu-Ray)*
My Thoughts: Ok, now I am on the same page. The reason I can't remember most of season 4 and all of season 5 is that I stopped watching somewhere in the middle of season 4. Apparently Fringe remix doesn't play quite as well as a weekly installment. So the big event of this season was the Dollhouse: Epithet style dystopian future jump. And while I am a big fan of this type of story telling it does feel a little "oh crap, our ratings are dropping". Also the method of said dystopian future is a bit shark jump-y. But hey I am still onboard and watching Fringe episodes I haven't seen before, lets hope they really focus on the dystopian future aspect a lot next season and don't just make it a one episode wrap up.

Apollo 18 (2011) (Blu-Ray)
My Thoughts: I could have sworn that I had watched this for one of the challenges but after a little research I guess not. Maybe someday I should make a linkable list of all my little reviews on here... or better yet back them up, yes back them up. Anyway here is another movie that requires a heavy dose of suspension of disbelief. I don't see why people despise these movies so much, I mean it is about rock monsters on the moon, yeah it might not be completely scientifically accurate. As you can probably guess, I dug it, I love exploration mysteries and really liked found footage as a period piece. Not the best movie ever but my pick slightly over Europa Report (it's other studio, same time, similar plot doppelganger).

Commentary For Apollo 18 (2011) (Blu-Ray)*
My Thoughts: Well you knew it wasn't going to be great when it turned out to be a Director/Editor track. Off hand I can only think of one editor track I have really liked and it was on Terror Firmer of all things. A few interesting details here, and it was also interesting that they recorded this before the movie was almost universally skewered. I wonder how the track might have been if they had recorded a month or 2 after it hit theaters. The one thing I learned of this track that really stuck with me is that you can buy pre-damaged film to shoot on, might be too inside hollywood but I would be interested in the methods used to achieve this effect, just an odd bit of trivia I was intrigued by.

Journey To The Far Side Of The Sun (1969) (Blu-Ray)*
My Thoughts: A sort of amazing movie, shot just before the moon landing, set in a 60's version of the future. It involves an international space agency spotting another planet in geosynchronous orbit with us on the opposite side of the sun. The twist in this one feels like a hackney'd Twilight Zone episode but I imagine it was fairly fresh for the time. But the real reason to see this for me is the awesome 60's future. The set design and future tech here was fascinating and several of these things actually came to be. Now the system that allows you to go into hyper sleep while your blood is circulated through the computer, that not so much. Recommended viewing for all sic-fi fans, at least once.Wish the blu wasn't so bare bones though. And how this guy got to be an astronaut when he crashes everything he touches?!?

Cry Wilderness (1987) (DVD)*
My Thoughts: Equal parts Troll 2 and animal documentary with hands down the worst bigfoot I have ever seen, but hey at least he can talk and is.. magic? By all accounts this is a terrible movie but it worked for me so much. Chasing tigers through abandoned mine shafts while 80's techno is playing, Indians wrestling with bears, racconery! And the entire movie was just dripping with wholesomeness, I kind of felt like New York art museum incased in ooze and this film was the Statue of Liberty. Someday in the future my daughter will be talking to her friends about this movie and no one will know what she is talking about.

Wayward Pines S01E09 (2015) (Internet)*
My Thoughts: All it lost, the jig is up, will Pilcher go through with it and reset the town again (well the scenes from next episode indicate that he will, thanks for the spoilers Fox)? One thing I really liked about this episode was the video journals of people venturing into the world to try and find survivors. That right there could have been an awesome series, I could have watched that for seasons. I am not sure how to feel about the series at this point, I was very Gung Ho in the beginning but I am starting to falter in my universal praise. Still it has 1 episode left and a book to read, I have been overall pleased with the Pines.

Fringe S05E01-13 (2012-2013) (Blu-Ray)*
My Thoughts: And as always after I binge on a good show I am left with that what will I do now feeling, followed by the what am I doing with my life feeling. But I have taught myself over the years to mostly ignore that latter one. While season 4 & 5 were not as good as the first two I have to commend them for the grand scope and really pushing the fan service connections in season 5. It never really hit that high that earlier seasons did but it was ultimately a satisfying conclusion to a great show (something that not all sci-fi shows get (especially on Fox)).

Conan: The Destroyer (1984) (Blu-Ray)
My Thoughts: Cut down to PG after the fact, there are still little bits and pieces here of the original intent of this movie. I wonder if the original elements still exist somewhere... I always thought that this was a decent followup, yes no where near as epic as the first but the first was an origin story, and those always play a bit better. It was fun to put Conan on a more official quest, fighting wizards and monsters with a spoiled princess in tow. It was a waste to just have Andre The Giant in a rubber monster suit though, that could have been a great opponent for Conan.

In Search Of Bigfoot (1976) (DVD)*
My Thoughts: So it's been about 40 years since this movie came out and still no more evidence of Bigfoot than we apparently had in the 70's. As much as I love a good mystery I think we can close the book on Bigfoot. This is basically a story about walking through the woods and reminiscing about seeing Bigfoot. A few interesting nature shots (one especially in which a badger steals a fish from a bobcat) but otherwise this was a bore and the on loop harmonica score gets old and fast.

The Adventures Of Brisco County Jr. S01E01-E07 (1993) (DVD)*
My Thoughts: I remember seeing bits an pieces of this when it first came out and I feel like I initially kind of liked it but could never really get back into it whenever it was on again. I think this is mostly due to me almost universally hating Westerns at that time. But I have mellowed over the years, found the spaghetti and decided to give Brisco a second chance. And really I have to say that without Bruce Campbell this series does not have a lot going for it. I like Bruce as an arrogant cowboy and I love that there are lots of shots and quotes almost directly out of Evil Dead but the series just did not go far enough. There is a bit of sic-fi here but not enough to push it over the top and away from being a primarily hokey tv western. Lets hope it gets a little better later in the series.

Cowboys & Aliens (2011) (Blu-Ray)*
My Thoughts: I must admit to having lowered expectations on this due to public opinion but it was actually pretty good. Harrison Ford is on his game more here than I have seen him in over a decade, this is what I am hoping for in Episode 7. Watching this after Brisco is like night and day. People actually die in westerns? I think the issue the mainstream had with this was that the Aliens were after gold. Change gold to natural resources and no one would have had a problem with it, aliens after gold though just feels a little too Battlefield Earth (another movie that was better than public perception would have you believe). Also I was pretty jazzed that the UV code for this title still worked even though it's redeem by date was in 2012. I wonder if they are laxer with movies that don't do well? Anyway forget what you have heard and give this one a shot.

The Adventures Of Brisco County Jr. S01E08-E14 (1993) (DVD)*
My Thoughts: Ok, so we are starting to trend a little better here about mid season, more sci-fi and a little less hokey... except for ghost dad. It's hard to not like Brisco in his safe western setting where the worst that may ever happen to you is you get your bell rung. I am not at the point yet where I am beating the ground for Brisco fan fiction but not bad.

Wayward Pines S01E10 (2015) (Internet)*
My Thoughts: Wayward Pines could have been a great show, a great series even but it burned a lot of bridges with the mainstream audience and seems to delight in twisting the plot M Night style. I haven't seen any of M Night's work since Lady In The Water but I enjoyed all of it prior to and including that. It is too bad that he seems to have shot himself in the foot with having to have a twist every time. I too was not a fan of the big reveal, some interesting ideas there but it didn't play well. And is not even have as compelling as unfreezing everyone and reclaiming the wasteland would have been. Overall I liked the series and most of the 28 Days Later style closer and am genuinely interested in where they take this universe in the books.

Rick And Morty S02E01 (2015) (TV) (Wild Card #1)*
My Thoughts: This is secretly one of the smartest shows on TV. It is full on Futurama level of sci-fi but gets a lot dirtier and more violent. Season 2 starts out where season 1 left off with Rick and Morty restarting time and then suffering the cumulative effect of tampering with it. I am excited to see what this season has to offer and hope Evil Morty plays a big part this time around.

Futureworld (1976) (Blu-Ray)*
My Thoughts: This movie is 2010 to Westworld's 2001, a good sequel but so vastly overshadowed by the original as to be insignificant in movie history. So, somehow every guest getting killed in the first movie was not quite enough to get the robotic resort shut down. On the relaunch leaders from around the world and reporters are invited to show off how safe the resort is now. There is an In Like Flint ulterior motive to the resort this time and also several new areas and technologies added to keep thing fresh. I really liked it, it was solid 70's sci-fi and was way better than the tv series they tried to get off the ground. Also that was the weirdest excuse to get Yul Brynner to sort of reprise his role in this, it is truly bizzare.

Pixels (2015) (Theater)*
My Thoughts: So I got a free ticket to see this one, but I never intended on actually going to see it I was just going to use the ticket and go see Ant-Man, but as I sat there in the theater for Ant-Man I got increasingly worried because no one was coming in (and I have been in theaters before on a free ticket switch where no one else showed up and they never started the movie). So eventually I gave up and went to go see the picture on my ticket. Which is maybe for the best because I was always going to end up buying Ant-Man but Pixels I might not ever have seen. Not to say that Pixels is a good movie, it is about as dumb as the come. In fact Sandler seems to know that he is in a bad movie and seems a bit depressed about it the whole time. There was glimmers of things I like here, enough so that the movie didn't come off as completely horrible, but it did pander to gamers so much as to be kind of insulting. Instead of watching this I would recommend seeing Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World and King Of Kong.

Dr. Goldfoot And The Bikini Machine (1965) (DVD)*
My Thoughts: It was almost like if Dr. Phibes made a beach movie that never went to the beach with overtones of Austin Powers. But that sounds way better than this movie actually is. Vincent Price plays the mild interesting Dr. Goldfoot who creates (for lack of a better term) Fembots to go out and marry rich men in an effort to cheat them out of their assets. The comedy does not really play anymore but it is at least a visually stimulating movie. It did well enough back in the day to warrant a sequel which is also included on this disc but I just really wanted to be watching a Phibes movie the whole time.

Brisco County Jr. S01E15-22 (1993 - 1994) (DVD)*
My Thoughts: The show is really hitting its stride here, had there been more of this at the beginning I would have been much more on the ball on this show back in the 90's. Loving the time travel aspects and the plots seem genuinely more interesting here in the middle. On another note there is a lot of backlot action, that Paramount studio tour ruined me for a lot of tv shows. It's decent show and I am going to enjoyed the continued distraction off challenge.

Silent Warnings (2003) (DVD)*
My Thoughts: Well I guess I saved the worst for last. This horrible rip off of Signs has some surprising star power behind it. They open with a lesser Baldwin that they apparently rented for the day and also still had enough money left over for Billy Zane! I am working on the theory that Billy is just doing this for a friend though, he is way to good for trash like this. Anyway this future amaray donor contains some of the worst aliens ever to grace the screen. Like someone rendered these on their home computer bad. A disappointing end for the challenge.

Re: The 8th Annual Sci-Fi/Fantasy Challenge List Thread

Gobear's 8th Annual Sci-Fi/ Fantasy Challenge


First-Time Viewing: 22 | Blu-Ray: 14 | DVD: 12 | TV: 22 | Netflix/ Amazon: 5 | Hulu: 2 |YouTube: 7 |Theatre: 2 |Commentaries Listened To: 1

June 30 (dusk)
1. Watership Down (1978)-Hulu--I told you once that I was trying to impress you... I hope I have.
Richard Adams's novel is one of my favorites, and this gorgeously drawn film is a wonderful adaptation of his lapine world. The voice talent features a terrific cast of veteran British actors. The prologue showing Lord Frith bestowing his gifts to Elil-Hrair-Rah is a beautiful piece of animation.
2. Killer Klowns From Outer Space (1988)-TV--What in the blue blazes is the circus doing here in these parts?
In some ways, the 80s was very much a "you had to be there" experience. How else to explain this wacked-out candy-colored sci-fi comedy?

July 1
3. Edge of Tomorrow (2014)-Blu-Ray Come find me when you wake up
I tend to be wary of Tom Cruise films, but this is excellent, a clever blend of Groundhog Day with Starship Troopers. A shame that the title sounds like a soap opera.
4. Event Horizon (1997)-Blu-Ray Where we're going, we won't need eyes to see.
Paul W.S. Anderson is a hack director, but this is a truly scary sci-fi/horror movie that borrows heavily from Solaris with a touch of Lovecraft.
5. Into The Woods (2014)-Blu-Ray I wish, more than anything...
Rob Marshall stumbled after Nine, but this lovely film is as beautiful a realization of Sondheim's fairy tale musical as one could ask for.

July 2
6. Extraterrestrial (2014)-Netflix That's not an airplane!
Extraterrestrial started out well, with a woman being abducted by aliens. but then it quickly turned into crap. The dialogue is wretched, and even Michael Ironside can't save this one.
7. Area 51 (2014)-TV Area 51, man. It's the 51st state.
A found footage film that gives away the fates of the characters at the beginning. An interesting idea that lacks success at the execution.
8. Colossus: The Forbin Project (1970)-DVD This is the voice of world control. I bring you peace.
Although the technology in the film is painfully dated, it's still a well-made, thoughtful film of ideas about a very real possibility, that our ability to create artificial intelligence will outstrip our ability to control it.

July 3
9. The Day the Earth Caught Fire (1961).YouTube--it caused an eleven-degree shift in the earth's orbit... and we're moving toward the sun.
An unjustly forgotten classic in the US, but this excellent film has received a spiffy new hi-def release in the UK. The plot concerns the earth being sent spinning toward the sun due to nuclear weapons testing near the poles.
10. Quatermass and the Pit (1967).YouTube--We are the Martians now..
Another great British sci-fi/horror film, which the makers of Lifeforce clearly plagiarized. A London subway excavation finds a buried Martian spacecraft, and London turns into a telekinetic nightmare.
11. The Day Mars Invaded Earth (1963)-YouTube--It's not every day we make a successful landing on Mars.
Angered by an Earth probe on their turf, energy beings from Mars copy a California astronomer's family as a prelude to destroying humanity. The opening scene has an obvious miniature probe on Mars a mere 13 years before NASA sent the Viking mission to Mars. Very talky, no action until the downer ending.
12. War of the Worlds (1953)-DVD--The Martians had no resistance to the bacteria in our atmosphere to which we have long since become immune.
George Pal's classic holds up well 60+ years after its original release.
13. Evolution (2001)-TV--There's ALWAYS time for lubricant!
Marginally amusing comedy about a meteorite hitting a desert town and bring voracious critters to feast on the locals The cast is a list of "hey, it's that guy" character actors.

July 5
14. Robocop (2014)-Netflix--What kind of suit is this?
I'm not sure if I like the remake or not. The cast is terrific, especially Samuel L Jackson as a right-wing TV pundit, and the effects are excellent. I think the problem is there's no Nancy Allen character. In the original, Allen as Murphy's partner was the audience's surrogate, giving the film its emotional heart through her connection to the man inside the armor.

July 6
15.25. Thresher (2015)-YouTube--A scary short about a man trapped in a locked room. .. and he isn't alone
15.50. A Voyage to the Moon (1902)-Netflix--I didn't like ths Netflix soundtrack, so I slapped on some King Crimson, and suddenly it's the 80s and I'm watching Night Flight on USA.
15.00. Wayward Pines, "Betrayal" (2015)-TV
16. The Zero Theorem (2013)-Amazon Instant Video--You've got it backwards, Qohen. Everything adds up to nothing, that's the point.
This zipped out of theaters so fast I didn't get a chance to see it. I can understand why critics say that Gilliam is repeating himself. He seems to be drawn to protagonists working out internal angst while trapped in dysfunctional societies. The name of Christoph Waltz's character, Qohen Leth, is a clever allusion to Ecclesiastes which gives away the film's theme, "Useless, useless, everything is useless." Leth is an 'entities cruncher" working for an omnipresent corporation who is waiting for a phone call that will give him the meaning of life. I liked this movie, but it doesn't have the same feeling of significance as Brazil or 12 Monkeys.

July 7
17. Innerspace (1987)-DVD--When things are at their darkest, pal, it's a brave man that can kick back and party.
You really can't go wrong with Martin Short in anything. Add Dennis Quaid in his sexy prime as a miniaturized hotshot pilot who gets injected into Short in a takeoff of Fantastic Voyage. This movie is hella fun.
18. Blade Runner (1982)-DVD--Too bad she won't live. Then again, who does?
Still great 33 years later.
19. Back to the Future (1985)-DVD-- Are you telling me that you built a time machine... out of a DeLorean?
We are as far from 1985 as 1985 was from the time Marty goes back to, 1955.
20. 1984 (1984)-DVD--Beautiful thing, the destruction of words.
Orwell's novel is not a prediction of the future, but a criticism of Stalin and totalitarianism. The film is a masterpiece, but sadly forgotten today.

July 8
21. John Carpenter's Escape From L.A. (1996)-DVD--Tsu-nami, Snake! Tsunami!
Say what you will, but I like this as much or maybe more than Escape from New York. Bruce Campbell as the Surgeon-General of Beverly Hills alone makes this movie a hoot, plus you have to love Kurt Russell's Clint Eastwood impression.
22. Starman (1984)-DVD-- I watched you very carefully. Red light stop, green light go, yellow light go very fast.
One never thinks of romance ad John Carpenter together, but Starman is a sweet, sad love story. Jeff Bridges really sells his alien character as a fish out of water, trying to make sense of Earth.

July 9
23. Predestination (2014)-Blu-Ray--It's never too late to be who you might have been.
The Spierig Brothers have made yet another intelligent sci-fi movie, this time adapted from a famous Heinlein short story, but the title would spoil the movie for anyone who's read it.Wibbely-wobbly, timey-wimey . . . stuff
24. The Wizard of Oz (1939)-Blu-Ray--Somewhere over the rainbow, way up high. .
The one, the only.
25. Earth vs. the Flying Saucers (1957)-TV--You're addressing General Hanley's mind, not General Hanley.
Definitely one of the better alien invasion movies of the 50s. Plus, as a DC-area resident, seeing local monuments destroyed is a hoot.
26. It Came From Outer Space (1953)-TV--Show yourself! Let me see you as you truly are!
Alien doppelgangers seem to have been a recurring theme in the 50s scifi B-movies.
27. The Day the Earth Stood Still (1951)-TV--Klaatu Barada Nikto!
Not just a great sci-fi film, but one of the best movies of the 1950s.

July 10
28. Wayward Pines, "The Friendliest Place on Earth" (2015)/South Park, "Go God Go/ Go God Go XII" (2006)/ -TV
29. Invisible Invaders (1959)-TV--The invaders are radioactive!
Attack of the stock footage!
30. They Came From Beyond Space (1967)-TV--Sentiment! I will not have sentiment interfering with our vital work!
I totally dug this one. It has a groovy jazz score and Brits possessed by aliens.
31. Dollman (1991)-Hulu--One of us got to get going, but I already put my money in the machine
Highly entertaining Full Moon flick with Tim Thomerson as a miniature alien cop on Earth.
32. Ted 2 (2015)-Theatrical--We could totally be lawyers.
The first Ted was a classic, but this one seems to be a lackluster collection of rejected Family Guy cutaways.

July 11
33. Electric Dreams (1984).YouTube--We'll always be together, Together in electric dreams.
Why isn't this on DVD or Blu-Ray?? It's dated, but such a sweet, fun film.

July 12
34. Coherence (2013)-Amazon Instant Video--No, we're not splitting up. We're just gonna go in two different groups.
A philosophical sci-film that explores the many worlds theory of quantum mechanics filmed in an annoying Dogme 95 style. Given what's happened to Nicholas Brendon over the past year, it's sad to see that his character in the film is a failed actor whose marriage and career are in trouble due to his alcoholism.
35. eXistenZ (1999)-Blu-Ray-- Hey, tell me the truth... are we still in the game?
One of the several alternate reality sci-fi films that came out in 1999, this time with immersive RPG games as imagined by David Cronenberg. It's a pity that Criterion hasn't picked it up.

July 13
36. Star Trek Into Darkness (2013)-Blu-Ray-- Damn it, man, I'm a doctor, not a torpedo technician!
Lens Flare The Sequel
37. A.I. (2001)-TV--"Blue Fairy, make me a real boy!"
This movie has really stood the test of time. It's a brilliant blend of Kubrick and Spielberg. Haley Joe Osment is fantastic as David; I thought he would be a major star when he grew up.

July 14
38. The Man from Earth (2007).YouTube--What if a man from the Upper Paleolithic had survived until the present day?
A terrific piece of science fiction that resembles a stage play. It's very rare that you see a movie that brings back science fiction as the literature of ideas. If you enjoy really thinking about the origins of religion and culture, it's very rewarding.
39. Ex Machina (2015)-Blu-Ray-- Did you program her to flirt with me?
Fantastic robot effects. A chamber drama in which a programmer is recruited by an alcoholic tech genius to Turing Test his android, but it's the android that's doing the testing. The ideas aren't new, but the execution is excellent. This is worth a purchase.
40. King Kong (1933)-TV--Twas Beauty killed the beast.
It's amazing that King Kong still holds up as well as it does 82 years and 2 remakes after its release.
41. Dragonslayer (1981)-TV--" I've plenty of reasons to kill you that have nothing to do with this sacrifice."
A corrupt king sacrifices virgins to a dragon, but a wizard's apprentice sets out to slay the dragon. Really good FX for 1981, and a thoroughly entertaining film. Plus Vermithrax Pejorative is the best dragon monicker ever.

July 15
42. First Men in the Moon (1964)-TV-- Poor Cavor! He did have such a terrible cold.
It hasn't aged well, but this would make a fun diversion on a rainy afternoon.

July 16
43. These Final Days (2013)-Netflix It's gonna hurt a lot, and I don't want to feel it. I don't want to feel a thing.
A surprisingly powerful and emotional post-apocalypse film from Australia. An asteroid has hit the Earth and a wave of fire is enveloping the planet. Australia is due to be incinerated in 12 hours, so the protagonist leaves the woman he loves and who he has discovered is bearing his child to go to an end of the world party and greet fiery death anesthetized. Complications happen. Excellent film.

July 17
44. The Land That Time Forgot (1975)-TV--"This is where evolution begins on Caprona."
Allied survivors hijack a German sub during WWI and find themselves in a lost continent.
45. Here Comes Mr. Jordan (1941)-TV--"People are always thinking they met someone before in another existence."
Another classic film Criterion should pick up. Robert Montgomery plays a boxer whose soul lands in the body of a millionaire financier. A sweet, funny , clever film that is perfect in every way.
46. The 5,000 Fingers of Dr. T (1953)-DVD--"I'm going Do-Me-Do-ing in my Do-Me-Do duds!"
The very first live-action Dr. Seuss movie, and one I've loved since childhood. Apparently, it was supposed to be longer with more songs but studio interference wrecked Stanley Kramer's cut of the film, and it bombed on its theatrical release. Still, the songs are insanely hummable, and Hans Conried reaches a career high.

July 18
47. Orlando (1992)-DVD--“I'm sick to death of this particular self. I want another.”
Amazing translation of Virginia Woolf's novel to screen. Tilda Swinton delivers a fantastic performance as a 16th-century nobleman who transitions to femininity over the course of 500 years of British history.
48. The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension (1984)-DVD--“Laugh while you can, monkey boy!”
A rip-off of Doc Savage, but still very much sui generis among SF films.

July 19
49. Things to Come (1936)-Blu-Ray--“ If we don't end war, war will end us.”
If this were made today, it would be a staggering 3-hour epic, something like Cloud Atlas
50. Metropolis (1926)-Blu-Ray--“ There can be no understanding between the hand and the brain unless the heart acts as mediator.”
Another epic that would be impossible to make today. The moral is sappy, but even nearly a century later Metropolis is an amazing spectacle.

July 20
51. Alien Nation: The Udara Legacy (1997)-TV--“ Take my blood, we will be free!”
The 5th and final TV-movie derived from the Fox TV series in turn adapted from the 1988 film. The plot plagiarized from The Manchurian Candidate, in which a human poligticians uses sleeper agents from a Newcomer terrorist group for his own ends.
52. Brainstorm (1983)-TV--The thought of you playing that tape makes my skin crawl. A hokey film with a a cool idea at its heart, a machine that can record thoughts that accidentally records one scientist experiencing death from a heart attack. The movie bombed, largely overshadowed by the real-world tragedy of Natalie Wood's drowning and the ongoing mystery behind her death.
53. Alien Nation: Millennium (1996)-TV--“The alien scorpion, it's coming back.”
The movie was filmed 4 years before the actual turn of the century, so watching it 15 years after the predicted events of millennial panic that never materialized is hilarious, and a touch nostalgic.

July 21
54. MST3K: Being From Another Planet (1992).YouTube--Now, mix me up a pitcher of gin gibsons
Pretty good Joel episode, riffing on an alien mummy film originally called Time Walker.
55. The Fellowship of the Ring (2001)-Blu-Ray--“And my ax!”
It is amazing how much better the Extended Edition is over the theatrical cut, and how quickly it flies by, despite being nearly 3 hours long.

July 22
56. Ant-Man (2015)-Theatrical Sorry I'm late, I was saving the world. You know how it is.
Saw it in 3-D IMAX, terrific movie. Paul Rudd was cut out to be a hero.
57. Sharknado 3 (2015)-TV--Sharks... in... space.."
Ow, my brain.

July 23
58. X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014)-TV--Is the future truly set?
So every X-Men movie since the first one no longer happened?
59. King Kong (1976)-TV--You Goddamn chauvinist pig ape!
The remake that time forgot. Critics hated this when it came out, but it made a profit for Paramount. It's a very 70s movie.
60. Wayward Pines, "A Reckoning" (2015)/ Wayward Pines, "Cycle" (2015) -TV

July 24
61. Millennium (1989)-TV--It is not the end. It is not the beginning of the end. It is the end of the beginning
Decent time-travel flick based on a classic John Varley novel in which the last humans from the far future rescue people from doomed aircraft to send them to other worlds and rejuvenate the human race. Definitely ripe for a remake.

July 25
62. The Dark Crystal (1982)-Blu-Ray--What was sundered and undone shall be whole - the two made one.
Jim Henson was taken from us too soon. Great movie. I suspect many a little kid was scarred by the Skeksis and their giant beetle soldiers
63. Interstellar (2014)-Blu-Ray--Mankind was born on Earth. It was never meant to die here.
The beginning looks like Interstellar was a Ken Burns film, but it turns into a pretty good outer space adventure.
64. Miracle Mile (1988)-Blu-Ray--I think it's the insects' turn.
Ideally, this is a movie you should watch with no spoilers because it begins as a romantic comedy and then turns into something much darker. A little-known gem from the 80s.
65. Lavalantula (2015)-TV--The Mayans had a word for it. . . Lavalantula
Ow, my brain^2

July 26
66. The 27th Day (1957)-DVD--Maybe people really aren't worth saving.
Decent low-budget flick in which an alien gives 5 humans a weapon of unimaginable power, and tells them they have 27 days to decide what to do with it.
67. The Night the World Exploded (1957)-DVD--We better do more than hope, gentlemen. We better pray!.
Despite its many flaws, this is a fun movie. and William Leslie is easy on the eyes. The "evil mineral will destroy the world" story was handled better by the Monolith Monsters
68. The H-Man (1959)-DVD--it is possible that the next ruler of our planet may be The H-Man.
Another nuclear nightmare from Japan, this time blob people who eat humans. It's a pity the DVD doesn't have the original Japanese track.

July 27
69. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part I (2014)-TV-- Miss Everdeen, it is the things we love most that destroy us
This is supposed to be the penultimate film about a rebellion against a tyrannical future government, but I found it fairly tedious. Oh, no, Katniss is sad! The next film better have more action.
70. Lost Soul: The Doomed Journey of Richard Stanley's Island of Dr. Moreau (2014)-Netflix--And then I met Val Kilmer
I'm a sucker for documentaries and behind-the-scenes Hollywood gossip, so I loved this movie. Despite his self-exculpatory interviews, it's clear Richard Stanley is A)slightly crazy and B) was way in over his head trying to direct a big-budget picture. Then again, it's hard to turn in good work when you are being deliberately sabotaged by your stars. Given his insane diva behavior, it's no wonder Val Kilmer is no longer a star. Why didn't they get David Thewlis to talk?

July 28
71. Bill and Ted's Bogus Adventure (1991)-Netflix--Be excellent to each other!
Good dumb fun with Keanu Reeves at the beginning of his career.
72. The Island of Dr. Moreau (1996)-Online--There is no pain, there is no law!
After watching the Lost Souls documentary, I had to check this out. Yup, still sucks.

July 29
73. The Valley of Gwangi (1969)-DVD--He who takes from Gwangi the evil one is cursed.
Harryhausen's T-Rex is the star of this show. not one of the top Harryhausen creature features, but still a fun dinosaur Western.

July 30
74. Ender's Game (1983)-TV--Human beings are free except when humanity needs them.
Orson Scott Card's most famous novel finally becomes a film and . . . it's OK. The acting is fine, the FX are excellent, but somehow the film lacks the depth of the novel's explorations of guilt and wartime morality.

July 31
75. Akira Kurosawa's Dreams (1990)-DVD--Some say life is hard, but that is just talk. It is good to be alive, it is exciting!
After Ran, this seems like more of a step down, but Dreams is still an excellent film.
76. Beyond the Time Barrier (1960)-DVD--I don't trust that man. Especially his thoughts.
An Air Force pilot flies through a time warp and lands on a post-apocalyptic Earth in 2014.
77. The Time Travelers (1964)-DVD--You are still on your own world, Dr. von Steiner - Earth. The year is 2071, and our world is dying.
The plot is very similar to the last film--scientists cross a time warp and find themselves on a radioactive Earth-but this is more lighthearted and fun.
78. They Live (1988)-Blu-Ray--Put on the glasses!
R.I.P. Rowdy Roddy Piper.
79. Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014)-TV--Last time I trusted someone, I lost an eye.
Marvel's superhero sequels haven't been very good. . . Thor: The Dark World. . . Iron Man 2. . . Age of Ultron. . . but The Winter Soldier kicked much ass.
