Re: 17th Annual Sci-Fi/Fantasy Challenge List Thread

Late to the party, but im here now.

total watched : 20 streaming 16 dvd 2 blu ray 2

July 4th

1. Mesa of Lost Women 1953 - A mexican desert is the setting with Jackie Coogan playing a mad scientist bent on creating creatures with spider serum. Cheese fest that takes to long too get going even at 70 minutes run time.4/10. Youtube.

July 5th

2. The Crawling Hand (1963) - A space capsule is detonated and somehow an alien possessed hand starts killing people. Definitely geared towards 1960s teenagers, its really an alien possession film ala Invasion of the Body Snatchers. Its slow and uninteresting even watching the MS3TK version 4/10. Youtube.

July 6th

3. Phase IV (1974) - Ants take over earth. The ant takeover is in 4 phases, hence the title. Very intelligently done. I cant believe this one escaped my attention as a child of the 70s. 7/10 Youtube

July 7th

4. Varan the Unbelieveable (1958) - A childhood guilty pleasure. Doesn't have the impact of the godzilla films, but its a solid flick. 7/10 DVD

July 8th

5. King Kong Escapes (1967) - A childhood guilty pleasure. I even saw this in the theater as a kid on a saturday afternoon. Viewed through much older eyes, its still alot of fun, but clearly geared towards kids.7/10 dvd

July 9th

6. H Man (1958) - H bomb testing creates a blob like creature that eats/evaporates people. Decent horror flick. 7/10 BLu Ray

July 10th

7. Godzilla vs Kong (2021) - Basically taking the superhero movie template and substituting monsters. A light hearted action flick definitely geared to kids, but enjoyable enough.7/10 Max

8. Godzilla x Kong The new Empire (2024) - This film follows the general big budget super hero template substituting monsters for superheros. Unfortunately, this one is not as much fun because Godzilla isn't a real part of the movie. Its more of a Son of Kong remake.
5/10 Max

9. The Alien Dead (1980) -A painful watch on many levels. rock bottom production values and lengthy dialogue scenes. 2/10 freevee

July 11th

10. Antiviral (2013) - Biological horror masterpiece from Brandon Chronenberg. 8/10 Freevee

July 14th

11. Last and First Men (2020) - Interesting art film about humans in the future communicating to the present. Basically, a climate change warning flick. 6/10 Shudder

12. Battlestar Galactica (1978) - TV pilot released as a film. Its a bit talky with a number of filler scenes, but a fun film. 6/10 internet archive

July 15th

13. Challenger The Final Flight (2020) - Solid documentary about the events leading up to and after the Challenger explosion. 7/10 Netflix

July 16th

14. Arctic Void (2022) - A group on an arctic ship experiences a strange event that leaves them stranded and alone. Interesting premise but not much of a payoff. 6/10 Prime

15. Battle in Outer Space (1959) - The Toho dream team made this classic outer space flick which for 1959 is pretty darn amazing.
7/10 Blu Ray

July 17th

16. Superman unbound (2013) -superman battles brainiac. decent one time watch.6/10 Max

17. Gnaw Food of the Gods II (1989) - A sequel in name only and essentially a giant rat film. Decent story and acting, but a one time watch. 6/10 Internet archive

18. She (1965) - Tepid romance story from Hammer. 5/10. Youtube

July 18th

19. The War of the Worlds 1953 - Definitely a classic on many levels. The special effects are outstanding, great story, well acted.
8/10 Pluto

20. Dream Scenario (2023) - Cage is excellent as a college professor who desperately wants fame but doesnt really want to work for it. Everything changes when people start dreaming about him. 7/10 Tubi
