Rumour is, TIME TRAVEL is the theme for 2023's SF/48

Yay? Nay?

Suggestions?

   Like the time travel theme. Time Machine, Back to the Fulture are two obvious choices.

We showed TIME MACHINE just a few years back. BACK TO THE FUTURE (or its sequels; which have never showed) sounds good

I can think of a few time travel movies that have never played the marathon:

The Final Countdown
Predestination
Happy Death Day
Somewhere in Time
Terminator 3
Terminator: Genisys
Terminator: Dark Fate
Daleks: Invasion Earth 2150

For some that haven't played the thon in a while:

The first two Bill & Ted movies
Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home
Time After Time

I still go with the original by a wide margin. Best sequel for certain

How about Beyond the Time Barrier, I donít think itís played yet. Also, Bill and Teds Excellent Adventure, itís been awhile since it played the marathon.

Time Barrier has never shown. Personally, I could do without Bill or Ted

The time Traveler's Wife (2009) was pretty solid. I think it would play well at the Marathon.

Setting aside the Time Travel theme, are there any recent Sci-Fi films to consider for this year? Because of the pandemic etc., it's been a pretty weak couple of years, but what other movies from, say, the last 10 years or so should get a slot?

Title: Re: Theme for SF/48: Time Travel
Post by UncleTim on Nov 25th, 2022 at 5:54pm
I can think of a few from the past decade:

Under the Skin and Possessor are interesting loopy ones that might be good for a late-night slot when everyone's brains are fried.

For ones that are just goofy fun, there's Underwater and Upgrade.

I don't know what the availability is since Amazon bought it but The Vast of Night is an excellent UFO flick that still feels criminally underseen.

There's also the remake of The Invisible Man, Vivarium, Ad Astra, High Life, and Kin.

Haven't seen a couple that you cite. Wasn't a fan of UNDER THE SKIN - but, it would certainly open some eyeballs at 2am!

good.
avatar 2 sucks. (3 hours long. marathon killer)
king kong vs. godzilla was incredible
i suggested "the man in the white suit" to garen and he seemed receptive.
i'd like to see vanilla sky (and yes l.a. i know you prefer the peruvian version)
we vets need to keep the new crowd of little ones enthused.

i wholeheartedly second the nomination of terminator three. it's arnold versus a female terminator who everyone incorrectly swears was played by beyonce. she was so effective at getting the human male adversaries off their guard by faking sexual attraction or faking damsel in distress. if the designers were able to see how effective it was they will would have said "why didn't we think of this before?"
later teminators 4,5 were complete derails. 6 was ok but i'd skip it.
