Orphan Black: Endless Forms Most Beautiful (2013 / John Fawcett) 5/10
52. Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace (1999 / George Lucas) 4/10
I thought I might enjoy this more returning to it after many years. I didn't bank on just how irritating Jar Jar Binks actually is. Even when he's not on screen, the irritation lingers because of how dull most of the other characters are. The special effects still look good, though.
53. Howard the Duck (1986 / Willard Huyck) 2/10
54. Frankenstein Unbound (1990 / Roger Corman) 7/10
Reinterpretation of the Frankenstein story, with John Hurt as a scientist from our future who is transported, along with his intelligent car, back to 19th century Switzerland, where he meets the author of Frankenstein, the future Mary Shelley. It's a woolly fantasy, but engaging, unpredictable and well acted.
55. Future by Design (2006 / William Gazecki) 6/10
Profile of futurist Jacque Fresco. The documentary mostly just leaves Fresco to expound on his designs and philosophy; how he believes our societies will function in the future, with little commentary. And while this is good for getting a feel for Fresco's personality and enthusiasm for his work, it doesn't help us place him in context or evaluate his contributions. Several of the designs we see are now with us or being developed, but since we don't know when he thought them up, nor whether he simply foresaw them as possibilities or created more practical designs, it's hard to tell whether he was simply an imaginative dreamer or an unacknowledged genius. I suspect more the former.
56. The Manster (1959 / George P. Breakston; Kenneth G. Crane) 6/10
57. Universal Soldier: Regeneration (2010 / John Hyams) 3/10
58. Barb Wire (1996 / David Hogan) 3/10
59. Super Mario Bros. (1993 / Rocky Morton; Annabel Jankel) 3/10
60. Red Dwarf: Back in the Red: Part I (1999 / Ed Bye) 6/10
Red Dwarf: Back in the Red: Part II (1999 / Ed Bye) 6/10
Red Dwarf: Back in the Red: Part III (1999 / Ed Bye) 6/10
61. Red Dwarf: Cassandra (1999 / Ed Bye) 6/10
Red Dwarf: Krytie TV (1999 / Ed Bye) 5/10
62. Red Dwarf: Pete: Part I (1999 / Ed Bye) 5/10
Red Dwarf: Pete: Part II (1999 / Ed Bye) 5/10
Red Dwarf: Only the Good... (1999 / Ed Bye) 7/10
Been rewatching a lot of Red Dwarf episodes I'd not rated. By this stage the show is largely past its heyday, probably due to the exit of one of the co-creators/writers. A lot of the gags fall flat.
63. Freejack (1992 / Geoff Murphy) 5/10
This seemed to improve as it went along. The premise is that in the future, healthy people from the past are teleported into the future moments before they die in order to have their bodies used as vessels for the consciousnesses of ageing rich bad guys. Emilio Estevez plays one of the victims who escapes before his body can be harvested, thus he becomes a 'Freejack'. He seems to have already had his personality removed before the film was shot, though, and he looks more like Rene Russo's son rather than her lover (although kind of makes sense in the context of the film). But the rest of the cast do better. It could stand for a remake.
64. Johnny Mnemonic (1995 / Robert Longo) 4/10
65. The Matrix (1999 / The Wachowski Brothers) 7/10
Pretentious dialogue, which seems to be a marker of the Wachowskis. It still looks fantastic, though (omnipresent greenness notwithstanding).
66. The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (2001 / Peter Jackson) 8/10
67. Tribulation 99: Alien Anomalies Under America (1991 / Craig Baldwin) 4/10
68. The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (2002 / Peter Jackson) 7/10
69. The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King (2003 / Peter Jackson) 7/10
70. Resident Evil (2002 / Paul W. S. Anderson) 4/10
71. Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning (2012 / John Hyams) 8/10
72. Equals (2015 / Drake Doremus) 4/10
73. Poison (1991 / Todd Haynes) 4/10
74. Battlefield Earth (2000 / Roger Christian) 3/10
75. Solaris (1968 / Boris Nirenburg; Lidiya Ishimbayeva) 5/10
76. Fire in the Sky (1993 / Robert Lieberman) 4/10
77. Afronauts (2014 / Nuotama Bodomo) 6/10
Nimic (2019 / Yorgos Lanthimos) 5/10

I didn't notice a definitive ruling on the Andersen film, so I'm assuming it's OK. If not, just make the necessary adjustment to my total.

10. Beyond Tomorrow (1940, A. Edward Sutherland) - 6.5/10
11. Corridor of Mirrors (1948, Terence Young) - 8.5/10
12. Child's Play (1954, Margaret Thomson) - 6/10
13. Into the West (1992, Mike Newell) - 7.5 or 8/10
14. Coyote Waits (2003, Jan Egleson) - 5 or 5.5/10
15. Jack et la mécanique du coeur (2013, Stéphane Berla, Mathias Malzieu) - 8/10 (English-language dub; for shame @Sky Movies!)

Young's 'Corridor of Mirrors', while not tagged as fantasy on IMDb, is very much a high fantasy in the Cocteau mould; a fantasy existing alongside and within the outwardly visible manifestations of existence. Labyrinthine, hypnotic, unsettling, it stands as a unique and memorable piece of post-War British film-making.

The fantastical forms more of a backdrop in 'Coyote Waits', a Native American motif there in minds and consciousness. The presence of the shaman as a figure and the allusions to the coyote as a figure waiting to pounce give it this air of the mystical, the traditional, the folkloric. It is primarily a crime thriller though and a middling one at that, I thought.


Thanks for hosting, Kublai!

That's all, folks!

Sorry sebby, I can't count Relic (2020) as it's not tagged as Fantasy or Sci-Fi.

Assuming there are no other watches to be recorded, I think we can safely declare flavo5000 the winner. This is his 5th time winning the Sci-Fi & Fantasy challenge, reclaiming the title of champion after a lapse of 3 years. He not only recorded a personal best of 230 watches (an incredible average of 7.4 watches per day) and a new record for most watches during a Sci-Fi/Fantasy challenge!

Thanks for hosting, Kublai - I'll add the results to the overall leaderboard spreadsheet shortly. I really enjoyed this challenge last month and saw some great films - most notably a trio of Jodorowsky first time viewings and Color Out of Space - though the sci-fi miniseries The Lost Room is probably the best thing that I saw in January.

MOST WATCHED COUNTRIES
A more diverse number of countries watched than last year, perhaps owing to the concurrant challenges (Central America/Andean & 1000<400). USA holds onto the top spot. Canada was tied with France for most of the length of the challenge but France pulled ahead. Biggest shift is China pulling ahead of Germany and Hong Kong surging right behind it. Top new entries were Indonesia and Thailand. The highest entrant from last year to drop off was the United Arab Emirates and Yugoslavia.

No worries. I don't think billy liar should count but it's on that one list so in the end it kinda evens out.

Yeah, the official Fantasy list is not great.

Concur. Last thing, realized I was using a 60- rather than 80-minute rule when counting Lovecraft Country so my official tally is actually 15, not 17.
