Nicely animated as the previous entry with a great subversion of the Dreamworks logo and some eerie green henchmen, but this is nowhere near as funny or as well paced as the first two entries. Far too much time is spent on the panda reuniting with his father and village with silly comic shenanigans with the panda cubs there, while the well choreographed (and admittedly spectacular) action scenes mostly only pop up near the end. Try as he does, J.K. Simmons is also nowhere near as menacing as Gary Oldman in the second film.

07. Yeom-lyeok, by Yeon Sang-Ho (2018) 6/10

A humorous korean super-hero flick...

08. Ghost Stories, by Jeremy Dyson & Andy Nyman (2017) 7,5/10

Spooky as hell, and very well done, although the plot is nothing new. I also loved the score by Frank Ilfman.

Will there even be one? I know I'm in route to beat my best score ever (211), but do I want to?

20. The Mask of Fun Manchu (1932)
21. Seconds (1966)
22. Eureka: Many Happy Returns (2006)
23. Repo Man (1984)

This confused me. There was an alien plotline and a repo man plotline, and after watching the full movie, I still have no idea how they interact.

24. The Orville: Home (2019)

A bit more sci-fi-y, but still way too heavy on the soap opera.

25. The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor (2008)

Take everything that was awesome about The Mummy (and to a slightly lesser extent, its sequel), and remove it. Add in bullshit, and you have this movie. The opening sequence in ancient China excited me - I thought it was a good homage to some of those Chinese epics, often involving Jet Li. But then it quickly unraveled. No continuity with the other two, re- and mis-casting of Evie, poor writing, uncanny valley CGI, and completely devoid of charm and humor. Michelle Yeoh was the highlight, but that's not much of a compliment to her.

To be totally fair, albajos is averaging around 7 movies per day, which isn't exactly impossible if one is unemployed or on holidays. I'm on holidays myself at the moment, and I think I had one day in December when I managed to squeeze in 7 films - but two of those clocked in at less than 60 minutes and the other five were not that long either. Generally speaking, I find it hard to squeeze in more than 4 or 5 films a day even when I have nothing on and no real need to leave the house. There's just too much other stuff to do (housework; going on the message boards, etc). I guess I can only admire the stamina albajos is showing by going at a 7 film per day pace so many consecutive days. I know I felt exhausted myself after that mere one day of fitting in 7 films.

Image

This thriller benefits from a genuine sense of mystery and wonderment regarding the maze that (Dark City style) shifts and changes during the night. Vincenzo Natali's Cube is the film to which The Maze Runner most resembles conceptually though, and the film is full of thrills and suspense when in this mode. Part of the film though is also Lord of the Flies and the social order stuff is bland. The film also concludes with far more questions than answers (e.g. why only boys?) and too much room for a sequel. Great sets and audio/visual effects though.

Will there even be one? I know I'm in route to beat my best score ever (213), but do I want to?
Yes! Go for it!

The highest Sci-Fi/Fantasy score in this forum is 166. We'll see how fast I get there first.

But chosing to go through all of https://www.icheckmovies.com/lists/mill ... thpetgull/ do help a lot.
(not all of them fits the challenge though, strangely enough) (and with an average vote of 3/10 maybe I wouldn't recommend it)

Thanks for hosting this challenge Max:

FTV: 1: Sedmi kontinent (1966) 7

Image

Retaining the quirkiness of earlier cartoon shorts, co-writer/(with Ruzena Fisher/ Andro Lusicic and Vladislav Novak)director Dusan Vukotic & cinematographer Karol Krska fluidly draw an enchantingly animated surreal atmosphere via quality practical special effects keeping all the children gliding on water to the island, which they land onto as Vukotic scans the island with panning shots following paper left on the island grow into trees. Mapping out the adults realisation of the disappearances,Vukotic takes their search to an absurdest level via radios ads using the lost children to sell sweets, and musicians attempting to match shells up. Sketching the children as whimsical thumbnail sketches, the writers give the fantasy a playful satirical side with political campaigns on the streets (at a time when Yugoslavia and Czechoslovakia were ruled by commies) and self-important politicians finding themselves outplayed by kids on the seventh continent.

Professor Bernard Quatermass:
Roney, if we found out our own world was doomed, say by climatic changes, what would we do about it?

Dr. Mathew Roney:
Nothing, just go on squabbling like usual.

Quatermass and the Pit (1967)

101. The Astral Factor (1978) USA 29 checks
Sci-Fi. Another invisible alien. This one kills women after some sort of system, so it's basically a slasher film.
102. The Galaxy Invader (1985) USA 81 checks
Sci-Fi. Rednecks go hunting for an alien. Worst acting so far in this challenge.
103. Snowbeast (1977) USA 63 checks
Fantasy. To catch a yeti 2.
104. Unknown World (1951) USA 34 checks

Fantasy. it's Vlad, Vlad the boring.

7. Another Earth (2011): 7.2 - This very well directed and acted sci-fi drama uses concept of an alternate earth appearing for a decent drama about second chances and redemption. (Though it's far from the main focus of the film, it did bother me that in the background they have so much trouble in learning more about the alternate earth, even after establishing contact.)
8. Rollerball (1975): 7.0 - It's been 2018 already, why isn't this sport on tv yet!
9. Time Bandits (1981): 8.0
10. The Zero Theorem (2013): 6.5 - A hacker has to solve an impossible task to proof that there's no reason for human existence while battling his own existential crisis. It starts of very interesting, but unfortunately gets very repetitive with Waltz just moping around with very little character- or plot development going on. Gilliam does still knows how to create an peculiar world.
11. Treasure Planet (2002): 6.8 - A boy and space pirates!!! look for a treasure in this entertaining Disney movie.
12. Demolition Man (1993): 6.8 - Sylvester Stallone and Wesley Snipes star as hard-nosed cop and sadistic convict are woken from suspended animation in the future in this surprisingly entertaining action sci-fi. Because the future is completely non-violent the movie works as a parody on the typical 80s/90s action movies, while still also being an entertaining action movie on its own.
13. Tideland (2005) (rewatch): 8.5 > 6.8 - A young girl with junkie parents retreats further and further in her own imagination not being able to deal with or understand a traumatic event. She also makes friends with some weird neighbors. Jodelle Ferland is very good in the lead. The movie does very well in presenting the world from a child's imaginative view. But just like The Zero Theorem above the movies becomes repetitive and in stasis for a large part in the middle of the movie.
14. Sleeper (1973): 7.2
15. Körkarlen (The Phantom Carriage) (1921): 8.5 - very good morality tale about reformation. The framing device of flashbacks in flashback works very well in effectively telling the story.
16. I Origins (2014): 7.5 - Just like Mike Cahill former movie Another Earth it takes a sci-fi concept (this time the evolution of the eye and its link to reincarnation) as a gateway for a very decent character drama. I liked this one more because it's more humorous at times and the characters feel even more realistic and human (like the way the protagonist jokes around with his friend Steven Yeun).
17. Night of the Comet (1984): 7.0 - A comet turns people is zombie-like sadistic savages in this enjoyable campy 80s cult movie. What set this apart that the two lead survivors are teenage sisters. Unfortunate the zombie action is very very limited, otherwise this would have been even more entertaining.
18. Beneath the Planet of the Apes (1970): 6.8 - The second Planet of the Apes movies starts off as a very mediocre copy of the first, down to Charlton Heston look-a-like in the lead (Heston agreed only appear in the movie if he had a small cameo role). The movie does gets more interesting when Heston-copy discovers a lost human underground society that worships an atomic bomb. But it's the bleak and very surprising end that lifts the movie up mostly.
SpoilerShow
I don't know many other Hollywood blockbusters that end with the total destruction of the world
19. Escape from the Planet of the Apes (1971): 7.0 - This changes the narrative from the previous movies by making two (okay actually three, but one is killed off quickly) beloved apes from the previous movies (Zira and Cornelious) travel to the current time. The first half of this is the most funny and lighthearted of the series. But things quickly turn bleaker when humans starts to hunt the talking apes and their unborn child. The ensuing escape from this hunt unfortunate isn't as suspenseful as it could have been.
20. Conquest of the Planet of the Apes (1972): 7.0 - It's the 90s now, apes are used as slaves by humans and the survived son of Zira and Cornelious leads a revolt against them. I liked the whole concept of apes as slaves portrayed in the movie and Caesars revolt against it. Like the whole series its very bleak and pessimistic about human nature.
21. Battle for the Planet of the Apes (1973): 7.0 - A few decades afters the previous movie human have destroyed most of the world in a nuclear war and Caesar lives and rules in a small society in which apes and humans live together (but not equally). The budget by now is very low and that starts to show in the lack of extras and production design. Still I liked how this society was depicted and it was pretty entertaining.

1. The LEGO Batman Movie (2017): 6.5
2. Black Mirror: Bandersnatch (2018): 7.5
3. Star Trek: The Motion Picture (1979) (Director's Cut): 6.2
4. Resident Evil (2002): 6.5
5. The War of the Worlds (1953): 5.5
6. Ghost in the Shell (2017): 4.5

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 weirdboy for "She blinded me with science...fiction" because I like the pun and it's a great allusion. Congrats!

Week 2(ish) Stats and Challenge Update

Great stats as usual, maxwell. Once again I had the audacity to post right before you did the update so you missed my recent points. I binge watched Season One of the Clone Wars over the weekend (it's better than many of the Star Wars films) and jumped up eleven points to a new total of 43.

22. The Stone Tape (1972) 8 (best this month so far!)
Ooh, a Nigel Kneale I haven't seen and I've already found it online. Thanks, peeps! :thumbsup:
Enjoy, beatnik! I thought the premise was interesting, decent characters, and it had a few genuinely creepy sequences... :cheers:
i agree with all you said, peeps. If the BBC had produced this earlier I am sure we would have seen a quick Hammer film remake. But it's quite good on its own.

Most Common Films Watched
By popular* request, here's a quick look at the films watched by the most people (i.e., at least two). I've removed TV episodes from the list. And due to copy/paste issues, I can't guarantee full accuracy, but it's all for fun, right?
Thanks. Interesting stats for sure - not the least of which because you only have 3 watches for Aerograd in your Challenge, whereas I have twice as much in the one that I'm hosting (wonder if that's to do with AKAs on just uncertainty over it actually being sci-fi). Wasn't aware that somebody else had actually seen Dr. Caligari this month; that's cool. Heh, I'm among the viewers who saw Annihilation and Sorry to Bother You this month. Not Solo: A Star Wars Story though, and frankly I have very little interest in seeing it.

Well, since you mentioned it, I took a look, and I think I have 5 watches for Aerograd here - one was posted without a year, and another was a formatting issue. And your Dr. Caligari friend is none other than jeroeno. :thumbsup:
