Must-See Sci-Fi Project

I’m having fun and am on target with watching the 50 science fiction films listed in the cool Turner Classic Movies (TCM) book called Must-See Sci-Fi: 50 Movies that Are Out of This World by Sloan De Forest (Running Press, 2018; available at Amazon.com and Shop TCM). (And I said that I’ve watched five of the films but I’ve actually watched six so far…my bad.) More details about the book and movie watching project are on this blog post.

Here are the films I’ve watched so far:

  1. A Trip to the Moon (1902)
  2. Metropolis (1927)
  3. Frankenstein (1931)
  4. Island of Lost Souls (1932)
  5. The Invisible Man (1933)
  6. Things to Come (1936)

Maleficent: Mistress of Evil (I’ve also done a written review of the film on the blog.)

Classic Cinema Corner

I have been loving the TCM Essentials project this year! Watching 52 classic movies, one a week as listed in the great book from TCM (or almost one film a week…I’ll get there by the end of the year). Here’s a link to my original blog post and here’s where you can get the book.

This week, I discuss my recent viewings of Roman Holiday (Paramount, 1953), Seven Samurai (Toho Studios, 1954), and On the Waterfront (Columbia, 1954)–all on the TCM Essentials list in the book.

Saw the 40th anniversary screening of Star Trek: The Motion Picture (1979) on the big screen this week courtesy of Paramount Pictures and Fathom Events.

Check out this interesting interview with special effects wizard Douglas Trumbull about the making of the film from the official Star Trek website.

I also thought this interview with composer Jerry Goldsmith was interesting, too.
