Re: "Official" DVDTalk Challenges Compendium

I intend to host the Criterion Challenge next month. Since the checklist is more or less automatic for that one and there isn't much to do in the way of pre-challenge discussion, I figured I'd wait...

Re: 13th Annual Sci-Fi/Fantasy Challenge Discussion Thread

Looking Back
I had dual objectives this year. I wanted to log some of my un-logged library, and I wanted to go outside the usual suspects and see some new-to-me stuff. I only logged three from my...

Re: 13th Annual Sci-Fi/Fantasy Challenge Discussion Thread

I revisited The Mummy this afternoon, from the Universal Classic Monsters box set. I first saw it eight years ago and was disappointed and underwhelmed. I felt the same way this time. Karloff is as...

Re: 13th Annual Sci-Fi/Fantasy Challenge Discussion Thread

I'd be down for a core group of, say, ten "gimmes" and then another group of twenty "deeper cuts" from which half gets rotated in and out of the checklist. Gimmes I'd suggest:

Harrison Ford

Re: 13th Annual Sci-Fi/Fantasy Challenge Discussion Thread

I don't have IMDb Pro, but it just occurred to me that I could use Flickchart's filter to suss out some ideas:

Roger Corman
Terrence Fisher
Freddie Francis
Robert Stevenson

Re: 13th Annual Sci-Fi/Fantasy Challenge Discussion Thread

I made it to the drive-in, which was nice. I was underwhelmed by The LEGO Movie, and one of the things I disliked the most was their take on Batman. Tonight's double feature opened with the spinoff,...

Re: 13th Annual Sci-Fi/Fantasy Challenge Discussion Thread

I hated The Desolation of Smaug while I was watching it, and felt that same expounded frustration when it was resolved so quickly at the beginning of Five Armies. I've never read a single page of...

Re: 13th Annual Sci-Fi/Fantasy Challenge Discussion Thread

I've focused on first-time viewings and shied away from superhero stuff throughout the challenge so far, but I've got my heart set on a drive-in double feature tonight of The LEGO Batman Movie (eh)...

Re: 13th Annual Sci-Fi/Fantasy Challenge Discussion Thread

I finally watched Akira in its entirety. A friend started to show me that on VHS way back when, but we only got about 20 minutes or so into it before something came up and interrupted us, and we...

Re: 13th Annual Sci-Fi/Fantasy Challenge Discussion Thread

Finished Dark today. It was a mostly satisfying final act. There came a point where the interconnections became laughably convoluted, but I made peace with that because it was both sufficiently...

Re: 13th Annual Sci-Fi/Fantasy Challenge Discussion Thread

Ended up binging Dark S2 yesterday/last night and I figure I may as well knock out the third season today. My retention is a bit weak these days, and with something that has so many moving parts, I...

Re: 13th Annual Sci-Fi/Fantasy Challenge Discussion Thread

A friend of mine has talked up the Netflix original series Dark since some time after she first watched the first season. I knew something was up when she admitted she'd ended up streaming the entire...

I think the title alone confirms it's Fantasy.

Re: 13th Annual Sci-Fi/Fantasy Challenge Discussion Thread

Question: Does watching the 1953 and 2005 Wars of the Worlds qualify for "watch a film and its remake/reboot"? They're really just two different adaptations of the same source material, but thought...

Re: 13th Annual Sci-Fi/Fantasy Challenge Discussion Thread

If not to tell stories about people being lost inside someone else's butt, why even have the science-fiction and fantasy genres?

Re: 13th Annual Sci-Fi/Fantasy Challenge Discussion Thread

Having offended BobO'Link earlier by saying I favored the '05 War of the Worlds to his beloved '53, I felt I owed it another viewing. I regret to say my feelings about the '53 remain unchanged. It's...

Re: 13th Annual Sci-Fi/Fantasy Challenge Discussion Thread

Emmerich lost me after The Day After Tomorrow. I get that the idea was that our short-sighted American political leaders doomed us all by their rejection of climate change, but the movie comes off as...

Over the last two nights, I streamed World on a Wire on the Criterion Channel. It's presented there in two parts, as it was originally broadcast on German TV. Pretty much every iCheckMovies, IMDb,...

Re: 13th Annual Sci-Fi/Fantasy Challenge Discussion Thread

Spielberg's movie--more than the novel--is basically an homage to Doyle so the title works for me. From a moneymaking perspective, I know they pretty much had to make sequels but from a storytelling...
