16th Annual Sci-Fi/Fantasy Challenge List Thread!
2023
Discussion Thread Here

Rules: Dates: Dusk June 30-Dawn August 1st

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.

Exceptions: 1: The Tarzan films are eligible to watch and count for the watch list, but not for the check list.
2. Superhero films. If they do not have a sci-fi/fantasy tag, they count for the watch list, but not for the check list.

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.

Re: 16th Annual Sci-Fi/Fantasy Challenge List Thread

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: 50; 2016:38; 2017: 23; 2018: 26; 2019: 16; 2020: 16; 2021: 13; 2022: 19

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.

July 1
1. Free Guy
(2021)

July 2
2. Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings
(2021)

July 9
3. Birth
(2004)

July 20
4. Godzilla
(2014)

July 22
5. DC's Legends of Tomorrow
- Out of Time / The Justice Society of America

July 30
6. The Incredible Shrinking Woman (1981)

July 31
7. John Carter
(2012)

Re: 16th Annual Sci-Fi/Fantasy Challenge List Thread

Gobear's 2023 Sci-Fi/ Fantasy Challenge



July 1
1. Soylent Green (1973)-TV:
Set in the far future year 2022, Charlton Heston is a cop trying to solve a murder in an over-populated and polluted New York City. The movie is a bit silly in some of its predictions, but while global warming is a serious issue, at least we aren't eating people crackers, yet.

July 2
2. Conquest of the Planet of the Apes (1973)-TV:
Set in the far future year 1991, Roddy McDowall plays the now-grown child of talking apes from the future who leads a revolution of ape slaves against their human masters. While screenwriter Paul Dehn thought making an explicit racial allegory with the 1965 Watts riots was ap rogressive racial statement in 1972, today it looks stale and offensive.

July 3
3. Johnny Mnemonic (1995)-Criterion Channel:
Set in the far future year 2021, Keanu Reeves play a "mnemonic courier", an agent who smuggles data in a neural implant. The movie is supposed to be futuristic but it looks ridiculous today. The writers couldn't even get minor details right. the film opens with Keanu being awakened by an alarm on Thursday, January 17, 2021, but the 17th was a Sunday. A pity the screenwriters didn't use the Internet to check.
4. Radius (2017)-TV-A man survuces a car wreck only to find his presence is lethal to anyone withing 50 feet of him. I

July 5
5. Independence Day (1996)-TV
-Aliens try to eradicate humanity

July 6
6. Monsters vs Aliens (2009)-MA
-Entertaining kids flick.-

July 7
7. Margaux (2022)-TV
-A smart house kills off annoying college kids. I'm siding with the house.
8. Passengers (2008)-Blu-Ray-

July 9
9.Earth vs the Flying Saucers (1956)--I never get tired of this flick
10. 65 (2023)-Netflix--
a misfire of a movie. Adam Driver is an alien who crash lands on Earth 65 million years ago just in time for Comet Day.

July 10
11. Attack of the Crab Monsters (1957)
-YouTube-Intelligent giant crabs absorb the minds of the people they eat. This could use a modern remake

July 16
12. Avatar: The Way of Water (2023)-Disney+
-I was initially skeptical of this sequel to a forgotten film, but it really works. Never underestimate James Cameron.

July 17
13. Starship Troopers (1997)--MA-
These days I'm unsure if the audience understands that this is a satire of fascism and not an endorsement.

July 18
14. Vivarium (2020)--Netflix-
The plot about a human couple forced to raise an alien baby in an artificial environment is interesting, but runs out of steam. This would have been better as a Twilight Zone episode because there just isn't enough material to fill the runtime.

July 20
15. Crack in the World (1965). Blu-Ray.
Another low-budget film that could use a remake with modern special effects

July 21
16. Killdozer (1974)--YouTube
-It's amazing how made-for-TV movies in the 70s could attract such a roster of excellent character actors.

July 22
17. The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the Eighth Dimension (1984)--Amazon Prime-
Still waiting for The World Crime League.

1. The Witcher (2023): S3E1, S3E2

July 2nd
2. Secret Invasion (2023): S1E1, S1E2

July 3rd
3. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 (2023): It's hard to believe it's been 6 years since the last Guardians movie. While I think the first one is easily the best, the 2nd and this one were fun as well (and if this is it for the series, I think it went out while still good). And yes ... Cosmo is a very good dog! ****

July 4th
4. The Flash (2023): Once I past the ick factor of Ezra Miller (and could just enjoy the story for what it was), I thought this was very good. It probably helps to have the nostalgia factor of seeing Micheal Keaton's Batman again (along with Danny Elfman's music). And there were other fun bits, my favorite being
Spoiler:
getting to finally see Nicholas Cage as Superman fight a giant spider!

****
5. Renfield (2023): Silly, gory, and fun ... if not quite living up to the movie's premise and cast. ***

6. ☼ Miracle Workers (2019): S1E1, S1E2; Space:1999 (1976): Season 2, "Catacombs of the Moon"

July 5th
7. ☼ Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse (2023): A beautifully-made movie, but ... here's where being spoiled a little would've helped me come out of watching this feeling better. They really should've made it clear that this was part 1 of a two-parter, since the ending felt like a let-down. ***1/2

8. The Witcher (2023): S3E3; Secret Invasion (2023): S1E3

July 6th
9. Space:1999 (1976): Season 2, "The AB Chrysalis", "Seed of Destruction"

10. Black Mirror (2023): "Loch Henry"; Space:1999 (1976): Season 2, "The Beta Cloud"

July 7th
11. ☼ Linoleum (2022): I can see how this movie will divide viewers, especially those looking for a comedy (which is how this is first listed). But I thought it was pretty great, and it's a movie that warrants thinking about after watching. Even though it had a very different tone and plot, it had me thinking of other art-house "mind benders" like Donnie Darko and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. ****1/2

12. M3GAN (2022): It doesn't do anything new, and if you're at all familiar with horror movies you can pretty much see all the story beats coming. But it still does it in entertaining way. ***1/2

13. ☼ Black Mirror (2023): "Beyond the Sea"

July 8th
14. ☼ Black Mirror (2023): "Mazey Day", "Demon 79"

July 9th
15. ☼ Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny (2023): As someone old enough to have seen the 80s Indiana Jones movies in the theater, it's a nostalgia thrill seeing Harrison Ford in the role again. As a movie, while a serviceable action movie it was fine ... but didn't seem anything special. ***1/2

16. The Witcher (2023): S3E4; Space:1999 (1976): Season 2, "Space Warp"

July 11th
17. Nimona (2023): Pretty good for a Disney reject I really like the idea of carrying over a medieval fantasy story 1000 years into the future, where the kingdom has modern (if not advanced) technology. ****

July 13th
18. Evil Dead Rise (2023): There's not much new to be done with the Evil Dead formula, though this throws in a couple of wrinkles moving the setting from the woods to a urban apartment building and adding a family element to the characters. ***1/2 Wildcard #1

19. Batman: The Doom That Came to Gotham (2023): Batman + Cthulhu ... what's not to love? It's a mixture that works well, moving the setting to the 1920's. And it's fun to see reimagined villains like Penguin, Poison Ivy, Two Face, Killer Croc, and R'as al Ghul. ***1/2

July 14th
20. Nine Days (2020): A movie you have to have patience for (and/or maybe be in the right mood). But if you're open, it packs a huge emotional wallop. ****1/2

21. I'm Your Man (2021): What sounds like a pretty trite concept (sci-fi rom com about a sceptical woman romantically matched with an android) tackles a lot, and does it very well. I appreciated it didn't go for an easy ending either. ****

July 16th
22. The Witcher (2023): S3E5; Secret Invasion (2023): S1E4

23. The Terminator (1984): Usually horror movies (and despite it's sci-fi classification, this plays like a horror movie) have unlucky people in the wrong place at the wrong time. And there's a lot of them here ... but the police psychiatrist who leaves the station just as Arnold is entering was one lucky bastard! *****

24. Space:1999 (1976): Season 2, "The Bringer of Wonders"

July 17th
25. Apples (2023): Not listed as sci-fi anywhere, but the fact that a central part of the story is a strange anmesia disease (and the weird methods of treating its victims) makes me think it should count. Very low key but moving in a quiet way, and I like that it doesn't overstay its welcome (running less than 90 minutes). **** Wildcard #2

26. Space:1999 (1976): Season 2, "The Lambda Factor", "The Seance Spectre"

July 18th
27. The Expanse (2020): S5E1 and 2

July 20th
28. Three Thousand Years of Longing (2022): Not sure how George Miller directorial follow-up to Mad Max: Fury Road missed me completely (especially one starring Tilda Swinton and Idris Elba), but it did. Very different kind of movie, through it features his strong visuals. I was really liking this up until the last third, where it unconvincingly shifted gears. ***1/2

29. The Expanse (2020): S5E3 and 4

July 21st
30. The Expanse (2020): S5E5 and 6

July 23rd
31. The Expanse (2020): S5E7 and 8

July 24th
32. Space:1999 (1976): Season 2, "Dorzak", "Devil's Planet"

33. The Expanse (2020): S5E9 and 10

34. Invincible: Atom Eve (2023); Secret Invasion (2023): S1E5

July 25th
35 and 36. The Expanse (2021): S6E1 to 4.

July 26th
37. ☼ Miracle Workers (2023): S4E1-4

38. Space:1999 (1977): Season 2, "The Immunity Syndrome", "The Dorcons"

39. The Expanse (2021): S6E5 and 6.

40. Secret Invasion (2023): S1E6; Doom Patrol (2022): S4E1

41. The Legend of Vox Machina (2022): S1E1-4

July 27th
42. The Witcher (2023): S3E6; Doom Patrol (2022): S4E2

43. The Legend of Vox Machina (2022): S1E5-6; Harley Quinn (2023): S4E1-2

July 28th
44. Doom Patrol (2022): S4E3-4

45. Legend (1985): I watched the 113 minute "Director's Cut". To be honest this was never a movie I particularly enjoyed, though I bought it both in DVD and Blu Ray format (looking at it as a cult curio). It certainly falls short of expectations going from all the talent in front and behind the camera. Although it has a fantastic look, and it can be enjoyed if you're able to go with the languid dream-like pace (and not expecting much in the way of story, characters, or action). For me it's a toss up on Jerry Goldsmith's score versus the original Tangerine Dream. The latter, though dated, worked well with the atmosphere of the movie. Although the Goldsmith score had some nice songs (if the actual score of the movie was forgettable, outside of the music from those songs). ***

July 29th
46. The Witcher (2023): S3E7-8

47. They Cloned Tyrone (2023): A lot of fun ... fortunately there was much much more to the story than cloning. I really enjoyed the 70's style of the movie (even though it was technically set in modern times). Great job by the three main characters, whose banter propelled the movie even during the slower spots. Reminded me of Sorry to Bother You, mixed with things like Us, The Stepford Wives, Invasion of the Body Snatchers, not to mention a whole mess of Blaxploitation movies. ****

48. Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace (1999): It's been a while since I've seen this. My impression is like it was when this first came. I wasn't as harsh on it as many. Even a lower tier Star Wars movie is good. There are some great set pieces (the pod race, and the entire "battle for Naboo" in the last 30 minutes). And John Williams doesn't rest on his laurels in the prequels, coming up with good new themes. Although the main negatives remain ... Jar Jar Binks and everything Lucas comes up with for "comic relief" are cringe-worthy. ***1/2

July 30th
49. Doom Patrol (2022): S4E5-6.

50. Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones (2002): Like Phantom Menace, this was pretty much how I remembered it. While we have very little Jar Jar, the romance scenes are godawful (though John Williams has a nice new theme for it). Hayden Christiansen's Anakin is wooden and awkward, though Lucas is probably more to blame for that than the actor. But this has an absolute banger of an third act that pretty much saves the movie. ***1/2

July 31st
51. The Legend of Vox Machina (2022): S1E7-10

52. The Legend of Vox Machina (2022): S1E11-12; Harley Quinn (2023): S4E3; ☼ Miracle Workers (2023): S4E5

53. Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith (2005): Easily the best of the prequels, though not without it's own problems. Anakin going from all-around good guy to ruthless child murderer felt rushed (all because he needs the Dark Side of the force to save his wife from a danger only seen in dreams). And Vader's "Nooo!!!" at the end comes across as silly ... and I remember laughs in the theater originally (maybe it would've been better to do that in Hayden Christiansen's voice and not James Earl Jones). ****
