01. Black Mirror: Bandersnatch, by David Slade (2018) 7,5/10

Interesting approach to online streaming as a new media. Also a fun film on the question of multiple realities (with a quote of Dick's book from which I named my dog).

02. Prophecy, by John Frankenheimer (1979) 6,5/10

Very corny, yet with a lot of talent involved. Quite surprising to see so many good things in such a flawed film. Interesting, and still quite enjoyable...

03. Welcome to Marwen, by Robert Zemeckis (2018) 7/10

Brilliant direction, unusual theme, and an unusual approach. I wouldn't say the film works well, but it is an ambitious attempt in any case.

You need 16 more minutes of Sci-Fi for this point - you have to total 60 minutes of shorts/episodes per point if the run time is under 40 minutes. :thumbsup:

40. Explorers (1985) USA 1 official list 1 861 checks
Sci-Fi. Kids invent a spaceship somehow.
41. Moon of the Wolf (1972) USA 50 checks
Fantasy. Werewolf. The movie title spoils the twist.
42. The Amazing Transparent Man (1960) USA 183 checks
Sci-Fi. Extremely similar to the original Invisible Man.
43. Monstrosity (1963) USA 125 checks
Sci-Fi. Scientist have made himself the expert in moving brains from one human or animal to another.
The last three movies are all from the DVD collection: https://www.icheckmovies.com/lists/mill ... thpetgull/ . Actually, not all of these are Sci-Fi, but I'm going to see the whole set regardless. There are actually a few offical checks in it as well.
44. Fahrenheit 451 (1966) UK 4 official lists 6 429 checks Gold on The 100 Greatest Sci-Fi Movies
Sci-Fi. Dystopia where book are illegal.
45. Fahrenheit 451 (2018) USA 305 checks
Sci-Fi. Probably not the best idea to see these two together. Anyway, all the most interesting scenes from the first one which basically sets up him questioning everything, are gone here, and he's just handed a book later on to start that arc.
46. Silent Running (1972) USA 7 official lists 3 156 checks
Sci-Fi. A small crew gets a mseesage to stop their expedition. One member disagrees.
47. Maze Runner: The Death Cure (2018) USA 1 official list 1 336 checks
Sci-Fi. The first one had a clear goal. I really don't know what's happening anymore.
48. Iron Fist S02E05 Heart of the Dragon (2018) USA 6 checks
Fantasy. For the ones that don't know. He got his powers from a mythical dragon.

Ludacris was very curious about this challengeShow
1. Hot Tub Time Machine (2010)
2. El Incidente (2014)
3. Vinyl (1965)
4. Avengers: Infinity War (2018)
5. The Orville: Ja'Lojah (2018)
6. Invaders from Mars (1953)
7. Dolls (1987)
8. The Mummy (1999)
9. Phoenix the Warrior (1988)
10. Devil Girl from Mars (1954)
11. Chopping Mall (1986)
12. The Shape of Water (2017)
13. Chelovek-Amfibiya AKA Amphibian Man (1962)
14. The Mummy Returns (2001) [Rewatch]

I think this was the first time I paid attention to the quality of the film rather than just getting swept up in the excitement. And while it's exciting and fun, there are just some glaring issues that can't be ignored (e.g., CGI work, plot holes). Still fun and rewatched mostly so I could watch the third one with Brendan Fraser.

15. A Boy and His Dog (1975)

Weird movie. Apocalyptic wasteland (set in 2024 US, which is not entirely out of the question) where a young Don Johnson roams around with his telepathic dog looking for food and females. Not anything I enjoyed, really.

I've watched the majority of those marvel movies, and this last one was the most satisfying yet because in the end
SpoilerShow
they killed off every annoying character except for Iron Man. I was sorry to see him live. And yeah, it's obvious that in the next one they're just gonna figure out a way to reverse time or clone the dead or some other bullshit, but that's fine because I stop watching these marvel movies with this one. Ten years, a couple of billion dollars, and dozens of pathetic attempts at character development later, we get a pile of ashes. I can't say it was worth the journey, but I did enjoy the ending. Thanos and everyone else 1, cookie-cutter superheroes 0.

While the plot dynamics are similar to the second film as a senator scours the streets on purge night with a recast Frank Grillo to guide her here, there is still much new material, as well as some very vivid and memorable images, from street-side guillotines to cars covered in Xmas lights, as the year's purgers go insane. Particularly interesting this time round is the concept of "murder tourism" with young people travelling from overseas specifically to purge. What really resonates about the movie though is its portrait of humanity among rampant inhumanity.

That's funny. Since you've seen more than I have, was the plot of this just stupid?
SpoilerShow
I mean, couldn't this whole "snap" thing been avoided if Chris Pratt could control his emotions for 30 seconds? Or if the red guy with the yellow rock in his head just said "go ahead and kill this thing in my head now instead of wasting so many lives"? Or many other stupid things from that movie?

13. The First Purge (2018)

Image

This prequel to James DeMonaco's Purge trilogy imagines what the very first Purge might have looked like. It is an interesting idea as the "experiment" gains media attention with proponents calling it a necessary "societal catharsis", while the bribes given to participants are whitewashed. While this offers a fresh and new spin for franchise, the never-ending talk leads to the purge action not occurring until a third of the way in, and when it does occur, the film never manages to up the ante on purge behaviour as each subsequent entry in the initial trilogy did.

Oh, and that Russian miniseries that I finished watching today fits in here, so let me also add:

14. Guest from the Future: Ep. 1 (1984)
15. Guest from the Future: Ep. 2 (1984)
16. Guest from the Future: Ep. 3 (1984)
17. Guest from the Future: Ep. 4 (1984)
18. Guest from the Future: Ep. 5 (1984)

Image

Words can barely describe how weird this Russian miniseries is as the plot focuses on a boy led to an abandoned house with a time machine that sends him into the future where he has to protect some new technology, invented by a female scientist his age, from getting into the hands of shapeshifting pirates with laser eyes. Well, there, I tried. There's also a talking goat, some schoolchildren set on launching their own satellite into space to communicate with kids in Australia - oh, and the shapeshifters can walk vertically up walls. The plot becomes pretty goofy during the final three episodes as it focuses on the girl scientist returning to the 20th century while still pursued by the space pirates (there's a bit in which two kids pretend to be one tall adult by wearing a giant trench coat and sitting on the other's shoulders). If not the best narrative out there by a long stretch, the project features some spectacular newfangled sets and costumes. The hallways and doorframes lit up by fluorescent lights are a particular good touch. The girl who plays Alice is wonderfully energetic and precocious too.

You need 16 more minutes of Sci-Fi for this point - you have to total 60 minutes of shorts/episodes per point if the run time is under 40 minutes. :thumbsup:
Sorry about that. I misread the instructions in the first post. I'll add this one to finish out the point:

Is there a problem with my maths or with your spreadsheet?
So... you know how I posted in the Rosenbaum thread while you were running out stats? You posted in this thread while I was responding to someone else. :P

It'll be fixed next OP update. I have the missing film (#12 on your list) recorded now.

Week 1(ish) Stats and Challenge Update

Users
Through the 1st week of January, we've had 37 participants in the Sci-Fi/Fantasy Challenge(!?!), and we'd love to have even more! albajos has become the first to leave the atmosphere, currently leading with 58 watches. flavo5000 is orbiting in second with 42 watches. jdidico has launched into third with 30 watches. Currently 15 people are in double-digits.

Leader board is up-to-date and maintained in the first post.

Years
Films watched so far have ranged from 1907 to 2019, covering 85 unique years in film. 2018 is the most-watched year with 61 watches, followed by 2017 with 32 watches. 7 years are above 10 watches each. Here's a list of watch count by decade and a watch count for the 20 years of the bonus challenge:

Decades List

Decade Count
1900 1
1910 3
1920 8
1930 8
1940 6
1950 26
1960 33
1970 40
1980 73
1990 34
2000 42
2010 149


Spoiler tag of the week
One of my favorite part of hosting challenges is reading the captions people put on the spoiler tags. This week's winner is Mochard for "[X] Aliens Invading Earth" because I like the updating of it and the fact that it's pretty obviously on topic. Congrats!

19. Night Watch (2004)

Image

This thriller features some really out-there imagery and pure WTF moments such as a group of shapeshifters shooing away a doll with spider legs while they stop a witch from casting a spell with a frying pan. Unfortunately, it's all very confusing. Based on a 500 page novel, the story is built on a mythology that is too complex to properly flesh out in a film running under two hours, and what can be nutted out feels overly simplistic in terms of good and evil. The frenzied and constantly moving camerawork does the story a disservice too.

20. Cinderella (1947)

Image

Shot in vivid colour and full of simple but effective special effects, this Russian version of the classic fairytale is pleasant if not especially remarkable. The best thing that it has going its favour is the way the King is frequently played for laughs, constantly wanting to run away and join a monastery and bantering with his guards like something out of a Monty Python sketch.The costumes are pretty nifty too and the interior sets and not half-bad, though at least half of the exterior shots feature noticeably painted backgrounds that never once look real.
