June 30 (dusk)
1. Passengers. (2016)-Blu-Ray-- I laughed at a man with no pants, until I realized I have no legs.
Passengers was much better than the reviews had led me to believe.

July 1
2. The Arrival (1996)-TV-- The greatest danger facing our world has been the planet's best kept secret...until now..
The real science fiction twist here is believing Charlie Sheen as an astronomer who discovers that global warming is a plot by aliens to transform our climate into one suitable for their colonization of our planet.
3. Viral. (2016)-Streaming--Keep your mask on!"
Despite the low budget, Viral is an effective sci-fi/ horror film about two teen sisters trying to survive a parasitic disease pandemic that has destroyed civilization.

July 2
4. The Neverending Story (1984)-TV-- Say my name!
This hasn't aged well, but the underlying message is eternal.

July 3
5. The Thing (1982)-Blu-Ray--I dunno what the hell's in there, but it's weird and pissed off, whatever it is.
The new Scream Factory Blu looks spectacular on my TV. It's odd to reflect that this is a beloved classic, yet I remember when it was released tons of SF fans moaned that Carpenter was "ruining" the 1951 original.
6. The Abyss (1989)-TV-- Oh no, look who's with them. Queen Bitch of the Universe.
Cameron needs to get off his ass and get this and True Lies released on Blu. It's a crime that these movies are only available on non-anamorphic DVDs. The extended edition of The Abyss adds so much more to the film, IMO.
7. Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea (1961)-Streaming-- Voyage to amazing atomic adventure!
A fairly tame adventure flick, and amazingly sexist toward the female characters.

July 7
8. Hanger 10 (2016)-Streaming--"Based on a true story"
A found footage UFO flick that uses the Blair Witch template but is more of a tedious slog toward a lame payoff.
9. Shadows on the Wall (2015)-Streaming--"What about Palmer?"
I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this micro-budget flick. Three friends create a device that can see beyond the observable universe, and something signals back.

July 8
10. Men in Black II (2002)-TV--Why did you put them rats in my locker, man?
A step down from the original, but still entertaining.

July 9
11. Colossus: The Forbin Project (1970)-Stream--This is World Control speaking.
Great suspense film with a downer ending. Supposedly, Ron Howard was going to remake this, but it went nowhere.

July 10
12. Logan's Run S1 E1: Pilot/ Logan's Run S1 E2: The Collectors

July 12
13. Logan's Run S1 E3: Capture/ Logan's Run S1 E4: The Innocent
14. Logan's Run S1 E5: Man Out of Time/ Logan's Run S1 E6: Half Life

July 14
15. Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977)-TV-- He says the sun came out last night. He says it sang to him.
The spaceship effects are too toylike, but this old classic still works for me.
16. The Day the Earth Stood Still (1951)-TV-- Klaatu Barada Nikto!
Classic film. How anyone could watch this and then make that Keanu Reeves abomination is beyond me.

July 15
17. Quatermass and the Pit (1967)-TV-- Martians!
My favorite subgenre is ancient magic meeting modern science. Lifeforce clearly borrowed from this film.

July 16
18. Game of Thrones S7 E1: Dragonstone/ The Strain S4 E1: The Worm Turns

July 17
19. Rewind (2013)-Stream--You want us to save New York!
A TV-movie that is a failed pilot.

July 19
20. Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom (1984)-Blu-Ray--!Mola Ram! Prepare to meet Kali... in Hell!
I think not doing this in 3-D was a missed opportunity for Spielberg.
21. Cloverfield (2008)-Blu-Ray--!Beth!
Who knew the dumb best friend would end having the most successful career after this movie?

July 20
22. The Confederate States of America (2004)-Streaming-- Learn the nature of freedom diseases!
A low-budget, yet cleverly made, Ken Burns-style faux documentary about an alternate universe where the Confederates won the Civil War.
23. The Philadelphia Experiment (1984)-Streaming-- You know, I got it all figured out... Navy owes me 40 years back pay
One of the more entertaining time-travel movies of the 80s.

July 21
24. Paradox (2015)-Stream--We all fixated on the could, we never thought about the should!
A time travel slasher film that is really fun to watch, especially for a low-budget flick with a cast of unknowns.
25. Meet the Hollowheads (1989)-Stream--Just to be on the safe side you should have her drained.
I just. . . I can't. . it's like David Cronenberg and Terry Gilliam had sex with the Jetsons.
26. Chopping Mall (1984)-Streaming-- I'm just not used to be chased around a mall in the middle of the night by killer robots
It sure was rough being a teen in 80s movies. Either you're running from a masked killer at summer camp or being killed in your dreams by a guy with really bad skin, and you can't even go to the mall safely.

July 28
27. Giant from the Unknown (1958)-Stream--It could be the ancient curse!
A gigantic 500-year-old Spanish conquistador rises from suspended animation to wreak havoc on a small California town.


July 30
28. Rogue One (1982)-Blu-Ray--I am with the Force, the Force is with me.
Fantastic addition to the Star Wars canon.

Re: The 10th Annual Sci-Fi/Fantasy Challenge List Thread

Title in BLACK = From my own personal DVD / BluRay collection.
Title in RED = Seen online (Netflix / Youtube).
Title in ORANGE = Seen on Amazon.com's Prime service.
Title in GREEN = Seen in movie theater during it's current theatrical run
Title in PURPLE = Seen on regular TV broadcast
* = First time viewing.

I'll be using the Horror Challenge type of listing where movies count as one entry and TV shows count 2 hour-long or 4 half-hour episodes per entry.

July 1
1. 2010
(1984) Sequel to 2001 not as lofty or ambiguous as the Kubrick film but still a very good movie in its own right. A trio of Americans travel along with a crew of Russians in their craft to rendezvous with the stranded Discovery where the sentient computer HAL lies dormant. Meanwhile, another Monolith is discovered, this one two miles long, orbiting Jupiter.

July 2
TIME TRAVEL MOVIE MARATHON BEGINS!
See all the time travel movies in my collection
2. Predestination*
(2014) Had not cracked open my DVD copy as I was waiting for the challenge to begin. Excellent movie with a very unique twist which I cannot give away here. Based on a short story by Robert Heinlein which I downloaded to my eReader as soon as I finished the movie. Recommended.
3. The Spirit of '76 (1990) Comedy movie which is a spoof of all things of the seventies. In the future all historical records have been lost so a trio of time travelers go back to 1776 to retrieve a copy of the Constitution. The time machine malfunctions and they end up in 1976 instead.
4. Millennium (1989) Totally underrated movie starring Cheryl Ladd and Kris Kristofferson. A unique looking film and an interesting plot about a dying future society who sends people to the past into airplanes they know will crash so they can steal the passengers and send them to the future to replenish the dying human race.

July 3
5. A Sound of Thunder
(2005) Movie that really tries to be interesting but fails totally. The computer generated effects have aged very badly giving the movie a cheap look. Peter Hyams directed the movie but the talent he showed in 2010, Outland and Capricorn One is nowhere to be seen. Loosely based on the short story by Ray Bradbury.
6. Time After Time (1979) A personal favorite of mine and many others, this exciting tale sees H.G. Wells pursuing Jack the Ripper in modern day San Francisco where he has fled using Well's time machine. A great movie with a charming love story at it's core as Wells befriends a beautiful bank employee who joins him in the pursuit of Jack.

July 4
7. The Butterfly Effect
(2004) One of the best time travel movies of all time with an interesting premise: it is not the body that travels in time but the consciousness and inhabits the body of your earlier self. A young man (Ashton Kutcher) discovers his gift and uses it to try to fix a trauma from his past.
8. The Butterfly Effect 2 (2006) Not nearly as good as the first one but still worth a watch. The best thing here is the stunning Erica Durance who plays the wife of the the traveler. The reason this one is not as compelling is because the reason the guy travels to the past is to improve his job opportunities.
8.5. The Twilight Zone - Episodes: The last flight / The trouble with Templeton Both of these episodes involve time travel.

July 5
9.5. The Butterfly Effect 3: Revelations
(2009) Several notches better than the first sequel, this one is a pretty good watch. The story involves a time traveler who helps solve crimes by going to the past and witnessing them. But then, instead of just witnessing, he tries to stop a murder and that's when it all goes awry. Pretty good.
10.5 Lost in Space (1998) Seen with commentary by director Stephen Hopkins and writer Akiva Goldman No a time travel movie per se but time traveling does play an important role in the plot. A very underrated movie IMO with a very (overly)ambitious story that never quite gels. Listening to the commentary really helped understand the grand scope the film was trying to achieve. The early digital effects sometimes hurt the movie but the acting and the story is solid.

July 6
11. The Twilight Zone
- Episodes: Once upon a time / One hundred yards over the rim Both of these episodes involve time travel.

July 7
12. Lost in Space
(1998) Seen with commentary by the head of special effects, the editor, the cinematographer and lighting.
13. Back to the Future (1985) I read somewhere that if you don't like Back to the Future you just don't like movies. Well, I like this movie. Hadn't seen it in years but it still holds up as a timeless film (pun intended).
Time Travel Movie Marathon ends!

14. Wonder Woman
(2017) A great movie that does justice to Wonder Woman. Gal Gadot is just perfect as the Amazon. Highly recommended.

15. Creatures the World Forgot*
(1971) Curious Hammer movie where there is no English spoken in the film, only "caveman" talk. The power struggles of a nomadic group of cavemen. No dinosaurs so there was at least a semblance of historical accuracy.
16. Ender's Game (2013) Totally underrated military SF film that stays true to the novel.
17. 300: Rise of an Empire (2014) Eva Green is the only reason to watch this.
18. Spider-Man: Homecoming* (2017) Good, but it would have benefited from not having The Vulture be completely CG all the time and not using a helmet so we could see more of Michael Keaton who is the best part of the movie.

Re: The 10th Annual Sci-Fi/Fantasy Challenge List Thread

Brainee's 2017 DVDTalk Summer Sci-Fi Challenge List

Goal: 31
Total: 66.5
First Time Views: 61.5

= first time viewing

July 1st
1. ☼ Arrow (Season 3): "Nanda Parbat", "The Offer"

July 2nd
2. ☼ The Venture Bros. (Season 3): "The Buddy System", "Dr. Quymn, Medicine Woman", "What Goes Down Must Come Up", "Tears of a Sea Cow"

3. ☼ Despicable Me 3 (2017): Pretty much what I was expecting (and what I would anyone familiar with the series would be expecting).

4. ☼ Okja (2017): Like other Joon-ho Bong movies, you can't really have any expectations except to know you're going to get something really good I intentionally went into this not knowing much, and it turned out to be less fantasy/sci-fi than I was expecting (the giant GMO pigs aren't a stretch from today's world).

5. ☼ The Flash (Season 1): "Out of Time", "Rogue Time"

July 3rd
6. ☼ The Flash (Season 1): "Tricksters", "All Star Team Up"

7. ☼ For the Love of Spock (2016): For the most part very good, especially when not trying to be too cutesy and just let the stories and footage speak for themselves.

8. ☼ Get Out (2017): I know it was OK'ed in the other thread, but this really feels like it's appropriate to use a wild card to count this one. Fortunately I was able to watch this with exposure to minimal spoilers. Wildcard #1

9. ☼ Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Return: "Reptilicus"

July 4th
10. ☼ Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Return: "Cry Wilderness"

11. ☼ Arrow (Season 3): "Suicidal Tendencies", "Public Enemy"

July 5th
12. ☼ Arrow (Season 3): "Broken Arrow", "The Fallen"

13. ☼ Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Return: "The Time Travelers"

July 6th
14. ☼ The Flash (Season 1): "Who is Harrison Wells?", "The Trap"

15. ☼ The Girl with All the Gifts (2016): Thought for sure this would have a sci-fi tag at either imdb or allmovie. But it doesn't so that makes it Wildcard #2

16. ☼ Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Return: "Avalanche"

July 7th
17. ☼ Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017): A huge improvement over the last two "Amazing" movies (whose lead I never bought as Peter Parker). I'm just sorry we didn't get to hear Captain America's advice for those going through the changes of puberty

18. ☼ Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Return: "The Beast of Hollow Mountain"

July 8th
19. ☼ The Flash (Season 1): "Grodd Lives"; ☼ Doctor Who(Season 10): "The Doctor Falls"

20. ☼ Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Return: "Star Crash"

July 9th
21. ☼ Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Return: "The Land that Time Forgot"

July 10th
22. ☼ Arrow (Season 3): "Al Sah-him", "This is Your Sword"

23. ☼ The Flash (Season 1): "Rogue Air"; ☼ Arrow (Season 3): "My Name is Oliver Queen"

July 11th
24. ☼ A Monster Calls (2016): Reminded me a lot of Bridge to Terabithia, using a fantasy backdrop while mostly being concerned about a real-life coming of age drama about dealing with tragedy.

25. ☼ Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Return: "The Loves of Hercules"

July 12th
26. ☼ Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Return: "Yongary"

July 13th
27. ☼ The Flash (Season 1): "Fast Enough"; ☼ The Venture Bros. (Season 3): "Now Museum - Now You Don't!", "The Lepidopterists"

28. ☼ Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Return: "Wizards of the Lost Kingdom"

29. ☼ Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Return: "Wizards of the Lost Kingdom II"

July 14th
30. ☼ Life (2017): This evening I'm catching up on a couple of recent sci-fi themed movies that good mixed responses. I'm setting my expectations appropriately low. And this ... was pretty much what I expected. A well-made generic sci-fi/horror time passer. It probably doesn't speak well for the movie that the ending, no doubt intended to shock and horrify audiences, made me
Spoiler:
Just the obvious way the whole thing was set up, and the overdone "Noooooooo!!!!!" by the two remaining characters.


31. ☼ A Cure for Wellness (2016): This what about what I was expecting as well (and that's just fine). It had style to burn, for sure ... and I'm a big fan of the stylish European gothic horror movies of the 60's that this is so clearly channeling. This badly needed tightening up with at least 30 fewer minutes. And maybe a more charismatic lead actor to carry things.

July 15th
32. ☼ Belladonna of Sadness (1973): I can see how the animation style (or lack of animation style, as was often the case) will be a deal-breaker for some viewers. That said, this was quite captivating. When experimental cinema works, it can make quite an impression.

33. ☼ Evolution (2015): What's it mean? I'm not sure I know. But like the director's earlier film Innocence, lack of a cohesive story is balanced out by some startling images, haunting mood, and a brief running time.

34. Journey to the Seventh Planet (1962): Good grief ... how have I subjected myself to three (so far) Ib Melchior movies this month?!?! This one didn't have the benefit of wise-cracking robots (though this movie is certainly a prime candidate for such treatment). That said, it wasn't boring (which is the real kiss of death for cheap sci-fi movies from this era). And you had a giant rat cyclops monster, which is something I never saw before. I got a chuckle out of the fact that cast members couldn't pronounce things like déjà vu (said like "view") and annihilation (left out the "hil" part).

July 16th
35. ☼ Children Who Chase Lost Voices (2011): With the retirement of Miyazaki, Makoto Shinkai is one of my favorite anime directors (it's between him and Mamoru Hosoda). This movie comes across as a Miyazaki homage. Which is not a bad thing at all, when it's done as well as this. Still, I can't wait to see his latest Your Name (Kimi No Na Wa) which by all accounts is absolutely brilliant.

36. It Came From Outer Space (1953): I must have seen this before, but it was so long ago I didn't remember anything. Certainly my first time seeing it in 3D, which was quite well done (aside the obvious meteors and aliens in our faces, the depth of the desert scenery looks great). One of the better sci-fi movies of the time, as you'd expect from director Jack Arnold (and based on a Ray Bradbury story).

37. Master of the World (1961): Nowhere near the level of the earlier Verne adaptation 20,000 Leagues, but solid entertainment nonetheless. Price is in good form and Charles Bronson is at his manly peak (so manly so cuckold's another man's fiance without even trying).

July 17th
38. Escape from New York (1981): Breaking in a couple of Shout Factory Blu Rays tonight.

39. Invasion of the Bee Girls (1973): I forgot this was the first movie Nicholas Meyer (Star Trek II) worked on. Not that the writing was particularly good in this movie (in fact it was laughably bad). Still, for those who can tolerate cinematic cheese this is a fun watch. Lots of attractive women in various states of undress, and the occasional truly effective scene (such as the scene where we see how a woman is transformed in a Bee Girl). I wish that a little more effort was put into the science though.

July 19th
40. ☼ Embers (2015): Somber movie that doesn't really go anywhere plot-wise. But the image of a post-apocalyptic world affected by a memory-destroying disease through a series of vignettes was a striking one.

41. ☼ The Little Prince (2015): I thought this was really great, and a different spin on the original story. I kept putting this off because the animation in the Netflix images looked so primitive, but it turned out that was a style used sparingly in the "story-telling" sequences. I really was expecting at the end though:
Spoiler:
a scene where the girl tells off the academy for pushing the idea that the goal of all children when they grow up is to be essential (though clearly it can be interpreted beyond just being essential to the workplace).


42. ☼ Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Return: "Carnival Magic"

July 20th
43. ☼ The Void (2016): I appreciate the influence of gooey 80s monster movies like The Thing and Hellraiser (with practical effect, no less). I just wish there was a more coherent story by the end of it all.

44. ☼ Game of Thrones (Season 7): "Dragonstone"; ☼ The OA (Season 1): "Homecoming"

45. ☼ Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Return: "The Christmas That Almost Wasn't"

July 21st
46. ☼ Fire and Ice (1983): Story is basic swords & sorcery silliness. Though the unusually somber tone, minimal dialog, and Bakshi's animation give this its own identity.

47. ☼ The Clone Returns Home (2008): I can see where the Tarkovsky (especially Solaris) references come from. Not for the story, but the tone and pacing. If one can handle that sort of thing, then this would be recommended. Also like Solaris, I like seeing movies use the freedom of the sci-fi genre to address huge issues about humanity that otherwise couldn't be covered.

48. ☼ The Ice Pirates (1984): After two dead-serious movies, this was a relief. 9% rating at Rotten Tomatoes (albeit from only 11 reviews) isn't fair ... the 5.7/10 at imdb is more reasonable. For people who enjoy the 70s/80s versions of Buck Rogers and Flash Gordon, I think this would be up their alley. The toilet humor and slapstick didn't work for me, but the pimpbot made me laugh. And there were some genuinely interesting sci-fi ideas, like a single fight in a time warp that takes so long that even future generations of the characters can join in. Also fun to see "very early in their career" versions of Anjelica Huston (the year before her breakthrough role in Prizzi's Honor) and Ron Perlman (in only his third credit). Perlman looks shockingly small in this ... but mainly because the male cast in this movie seems to be unusually tall (star Robert Urich was a former college football player, and John Matuszak is a giant of a man).

July 22nd
49. ☼ The Drifting Classroom (1987): From the director of Hausu, and it really shows What a weird movie, and one that seems ripe for rediscovery by a modern audience (less than 100 ratings at imdb and most of the comments are actually from cast members). Ostensibly a children's movie ... but one that kills most of the characters in horrible ways.

50. ☼ The Land of Hope (2012): Sion Sono is one of my favorite current directors, though he's hard to categorize. You just sit down to watch his movies and you know you're going to get something worthwhile. To be honest, this is not at all a sci-fi movie (though imdb lists it as one, so I'm counting it here). Instead, it's a family drama centered around a fictitious disaster in Japan (involving an earthquake, tsunami, and threat to a nuclear reactor). There's none of the "craziness" here that other Sono movies are known for. But it's a powerful and moving film.

51. ☼ Summer Time Machine Blues (2005): A light fun bit of time travel silliness was what I was in the mood for after the heaviness of The Land of Hope.

July 25th
52. ☼ The Strain (Season 4): "As the Worm Turns", "The Blood Tax"

July 26th
53. ☼ The OA: "New Colossus"; ☼ Game of Thrones (Season 7): "Stormborn"

54. ☼ Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Return: "At the Earth's Core"

July 27th
55. ☼ The Virgin Psychics (2015): One of Sion Sono's weaker movies. It has its moments, but stretches out things way too long. And for a teen sex comedy, it really went through a lot of trouble to not show anything close to nudity. Maybe making 5 movies in 2015 alone stretched even Sono too thin (though I enjoyed another 2015 feature, Tag).

56. ☼ Liza the Fox-Fairy (2015): I really really enjoyed this. Funny, clever, sweet, and creepy and twisted at times. Unlike the movie I just watched, it makes the on-screen craziness work by actually having characters you cared about.

57. ☼ The Beastmaster (1982): Yes, I really think I've never seen this before, at least in its entirety (maybe I've seen bits when channel surfing cable in the 80s ans 90s). They really got away with a lot of boobs and blood for a PG rating. As Bubba Ho-Tep also showed, Don Coscarelli had more in him than just Phantasm movies.

July 28th
58 and 59. ☼ The Cave of the Golden Rose (1991): Cute "Disney-esqe" fairy tale fantasy from Italian television (though I think it could've stood to be edited down to the running time of a single movie).

July 29th
60. ☼ Love & Peace (2015): Love this movie ... and very unlike anything else in Sion Sono's filmography. Good natured (and family friendly), at times evoking Tim Burton, Toy Story, kaiju, and Christmas fantasy. It really kept me guessing where it would go, but it was consistently entertaining with a lot of heart.

61. ☼ Colossal (2016): I had forgotten this was by the director of Timecrimes. Nice to see him seemingly get his career back on track. Much darker than I was expecting:
Spoiler:
especially with the Oscar character essentially turning into a mass murdering psychopath, when my expectations were that he would ultimately be the guy Gloria ended up with in a happy ending. Which is admittedly the point, and the real "twist" of the movie. The trailers and first part of the movie give the set-up that this will be a rom-com with a kaiju twist. Until we realize that while Gloria is pretty messed up, the men in her life are the real monsters of the movie. Not just Oscar ... the ex-boyfriend, while having a legitimate reason to be upset, comes off as condescending. The two "bar buddies" don't do a thing to stop Gloria getting beat up by Oscar and stop genocide in Seoul. In fact, at the end of the movie we see the "nice guy" being entertained on the tv by mass destruction in South Korea despite knowing full well that Oscar is causing it.


62. ☼ Murders in the Doll House (1979): A fun little mystery about which I knew very little when starting to watch. Sci-fi is one of the listed genres on imdb, but its connection to the genre is very scant.

July 30th
63. ☼ The Whispering Star (2015): I can appreciate what Sion Sono is trying to do with this movie. But that doesn't excuse the fact that it was extremely boring and tedious, and could've been done as a 30 minute (or so) short.

64. ☼ Ghost in the Shell (2017): This was alright. I think it's better to have a stream-lined introductory movie than some bloated incomprehensible nightmare (which I get the sense the manga/anime fans would've preferred).

65. ☼ Endless Poetry (2016): Not really a fantasy, but imdb lists it as one so I'm counting it here While not as magical as Dance of Reality, this is consistently captivating. And from looking at Jodorowski's biography, it sounds like there's still plenty of interesting stories to be told based on his life.

July 31st
66. ☼ Forbidden Zone (1980): As a movie, it's pretty incoherent. But seen as a filmed version of what Oingo Boingo's live shows were like in the 70s, it's fascinating (and certainly never boring).

66.5. ☼ Game of Thrones (Season 7): "The Queen's Justice". Hate to end my monthly count on a fraction, but that's all I have time for
