DVDTalk's Third Quadrennial Leap Day Challenge



Why? - Another Challenge? Are you kidding me? No, sadly, I'm serious. I've always had a fascination with Leap Day and time travel, and the theme segues well into the Action/Adventure Challenge held each March.

What? - Any film or TV episode or short that deals with Leap Day or Time Travel in any way is allowed. Even not really time travel things like Groundhog Day and Sliders can count if you want them too. We’re pretty liberal in this one. Commentaries or alternate versions are allowed, but otherwise each specific item can only be counted once.

When? - We start at dusk, February 27th 2020, and run until dawn on March 2nd 2020. This now expanded time period encompasses the actual Leap Day, the day of either side which sort of substitute for Leap Day for birthdays and anniversaries on non-leap years, and our normal dusk/sunset and dawn/sunrise bonus hours. Anything you complete during these eighty or so hours can be counted. As a bonus, we'll start the Action/Adventure/Crime Challenge two days early this year (but only time travel content), so you could get double credit during this entire Challenge if so inclined. We call this time the "Leap Day Challenge Time Paradox". Obviously, there is also double Challenge credit with our February Romance/Musical Challenge during the most of our time frame here. And, woah, I guess we have another triple credit scenario. I’m too tired to get into that, but you can probably figure it out.

How? - Watch the items on TV, computer screens, in theaters, on your phones, or through direct neural transmission if you are participating from the future. Everything counts as one. No wild cards. No need for a separate list thread. Just create a post in here for your list. Feel free to spoiler it if it’s big.

Where? - Don't you mean, "when?" Discuss the Challenge and your viewings in this, the Discussion Thread. Let's just include our lists in this thread. I imagine we'll only have a handful of participants, so a few lists mixed into this thread shouldn't be a problem. Please keep them spoilered if they get too long to reduce clutter.

Who? - Anyone and everyone is invited. In fact, anyone on this planet that watches a Time Travel related item during this time frame, has participated in the Challenge whether they know of our existence or not. However, one is only eligible for prizes if they post a list in this thread.

Reserved for our returning sponsor, Hamilton Books!







GoldenWheels has graciously agreed to again sponsor our little shindig here. There will be three prize winners randomly chosen from among all participants. Winners can select one time travel related item from their site, of up to $20 value. The below link is a generic link to items with ‘time travel’ in the description, but there are other qualifying items amongst their huge selection of all kinds of media at great prices.

Re: DVDTalk's Third Quadrennial Leap Day Challenge, 2/27/2020 to 3/2/2020

From the last thread, info on previous prizes:

I dropped the ball back in 2016 and forgot to pick winners and coordinate prizes with GoldenWheels. The upcoming return of this quadrennial event reminded me to take care of this. I sincerely apologize for the delay.

DVDTalk member GoldenWheels has graciously provided us prizes from his company Hamilton Books. They are probably our oldest sponsor of DVDTalk Challenges, and at least the most consistent and prolific.

Randomizer.org has picked 5 winners, who can pick any time travel related item of $15 and under. Here is a link to a generic time travel search of their many books, CDs, films, and other products, but many more related items are available with better searching. The winners are bacigalup, Dimension X, CrazyMat, Cardsfan111, and ntnon Please PM me your prize choice, backup choice, and address, and I’ll collate and give to GoldenWheels.

I have both volumes of The Time Tunnel, Godzilla vs King Ghidorah ​​​​​​, and there is even a time travel episode of Ancient Aliens. Between that and Doctor Who, and time travel episodes of Star Trek​​​​​, on Amazon Prime, I should be set.

This qualifies as a blast from the past. Thanks!

On a semi-related note, are we supposed to receive notifications of some kind when we're tagged (like above)? I don't believe I did unless I just don't know where to look.

Yes, youíre supposed to receive notifications of tags, if you have them set in your User CP settings. But I donít think they work anyway.

Gotcha. Checked my settings and I didn't have that box checked. Doesn't make sense to have that function in the forum if it doesn't notify you.

It's rare that I might know what I'll watch for a challenge this far ahead of time, but I recently picked up the first 2 seasons of Continuum from Big Lots and it seems perfectly designed for this.


I'll make this my list post:

February 28
1. Continuum
- A Stitch in Time
2. Continuum - Fast Times
3. Continuum - Wasting Time

I just looked at the dates for this year. It's on a Friday/Saturday/Sunday! That means lots more movie time!

I was supposed to work two of the three days, one of them pre-set overtime even, but asked for vacation. Might not get it, weíre short-handed, so Iím mad at myself for not remembering to ask for it off earlier.

That stinks... hopefully it'll be approved.

When I saw it's a weekend I immediately considered asking off that Friday (and possibly Monday as well - I have ~30 days left. I get 20 days/year and unused roll over) and make it a long weekend. Not sure - I still would have to get dressed, take kids to school, and pick them up in the afternoon. That always puts a crimp in those type of days.

If only you could go back in time.

Sorry, I couldn't resist.

Re: DVDTalk's Third Quadrennial Leap Day Challenge, 2/27/2020 to 3/2/2020

Wow it seems like the last one was just yesterday - or maybe the day before. Looking forward to more Time Tunnel for sure.

Omike's Third Quadrennial Leap Day Challenge List

Previous Challenges:
2012
2016

Spoiler:

February 27
01. The Time Tunnel (1966): Crack of Doom E:6 (The Time Tunnel Volume One)
Tony and Doug arrive on Krakatoa just before the volcano erupts.
02. The Time Tunnel (1966): Revenge of the Gods E:7 (The Time Tunnel Volume One)
Doug and Tony go to 1200 BC and check out the end of the Trojan War.

February 28
03. Dimension 5 (1966)* Blu-ray
With Jeffrey Hunter and France Nuyen directed by Franklin Adreon. Secret agents use time converter belts which allow them to go into the future or the past to try to stop a plot to destroy Los Angeles. Fun at times but otherwise not very outstanding.
04. Mystery Science Theater 3000 (1991): Time of the Apes S:4 E:6 (Mystery Science Theater 3000: XXII)
Some great riffing in this one even if this Sandy Frank epic is an easy target.

February 29
05. Captain Z-Ro (1956): Discovery of Gold* E:17 (Mill Creek Classic Sci-Fi TV)
The Captain checks out the beginning of the California gold rush and stops a good man from committing murder.
06. Cyborg 2087 (1966) Blu-ray
With Michael Rennie, Karen Steele and Wendell Corey directed by Franklin Adreon. A cyborg is sent from 2087 to 1966 to prevent the announcement of an invention which can be used to enslave the masses. Entertaining.
07. The Time Tunnel (1966): Massacre E:8 (The Time Tunnel Volume One)
Doug and Tony end up near the Little Bighorn just before Custer's last stand.

March 01
08. Journey to the Center of Time (1967) Streaming Prime
With Scott Brady, Anthony Eisley, and Gigi Perreau directed by David L. Hewitt. A malfunction sends some scientists and a businessman to the far future and the distant past. Nicely done low budget nonsense starts out straightforward enough but strange towards the end. I liked it.
09. The Penitent Man (2010)* Streaming Prime
With Lance Henriksen and Lathrop Walker directed by Nicholas Gyeney. A former patient returns to a struggling psychologist's office and explains that he is from a dystopian future and has gone back in time to try to set things right. Almost all talk and no action but very interesting. The cast does a good job.
10. Timestalkers (1987)* Streaming Prime
With William Devane, Lauren Hutton, and Klaus Kinski directed by Michael Schultz. A time traveler from 600 years in the future enlists the aid of a history professor to help track down one of her fellow scientists who wants to kill her ancestor in 1886. Made for TV movie (CBS) has Klaus Kinski doing his usual fine job as a villain. A little goofy but an easy watch. Unfortunately this version is cut.

Thanks bacigalup ! Iím fairly confident in getting responses from ntnon, Cardsfan111, and Dimension X, but it looks like CrazyMat left the forum over three years ago. Iíve PMed and emailed them, with no response yet. Theyíll have a few more days, but Iíll go ahead and announce the randomizer backup options. Next up will be malazar and then BobO'Link. If you two want to get picks ready to go, Iím fairly positive at least malazar will get a prize.

Other housekeeping, I think Iíll just go with last timeís limited theme days and checklist, let me get them in here back in post two, hopefully in the next few minutes. But feel free to correct me or suggest additions or changes. Nothing needs to be fully locked in for another 3 weeks I guess.

"Controlled Experiment" might be borderline, since it's about manipulating time instead time travel.

There are also a couple episodes of the original Twilight Zone that have to do with time travel. I know of at least four.

Some interesting posts and possible checklist ideas from the 2016 thread:

A variation on 2/3 above could be
-Past character travels to the present (Kate and Leopold)
-Present character travels to the future (Back to the Future 2)
-Present character travels to the past (Back to the Future 1 and 3)
-Future character travels to the present (Terminator)

Or condense the above into travels forward/travels backward.

Or some randoms:
-Character time-travels to try to change history (Terminator)
-Character meets actual historical figures (Midnight in Paris)
-Dinosaurs
-The Old West

Temporal Anomalies in Time Travel Movies

It includes a nice list of time travel movies on the sidebar on the right side of the page.
