And we're off again. The marathon turns 18.
 

I can't complain but sometimes I still do. Life's been good to me so far.

A pretty inventive lineup. Aelita with it's commies go to mars, Buckaroo Banzai with a talk by it's director (he actually told us why there was a watermelon there, but damn if I can remember) all that exists of Mant, and more Space Patrol.

Yep, dinosaurs. Rodan was MIA. Julie Corman was interesting but Nightfall was horrible. Trying to do a major classic SF story on a minimum budget did not work. TWO anime films, neither went over well. Body Snatchers showed why it did not get a wide release.

SF20, we get another version of Metropolis (can't be too much left to find now. 2001, always a great dividing film between new and old fans. Dr Who was a now show (another time perhaps.) Dr Strangelove did show up and had a lot of us singing along at the end. Plus another anime, another film that did not go over well.

Can't tell you how many times during this marathon I thought to myself "my god, I've been doing this for 20 years!

So, with SF50 only 12 years away I think a book should be in the works with all the memorabilia!

Tempting idea.
I even have a title.
"50 Years of Science Fiction, 24 Hours At A Time"

The marathon matures, 21 years old makes it pretty much legal for anything.
But much like the marathoids, it gets older but never quite grows up.

The theme is Time and another interesting batch of films. Just Imagine is a film musical that killed science fiction for years. Not to be missed or believed once seen. Time Bandits was long overdue to be shown.Sleeper has aged well and Time After Time is still a beautiful film.

Ticket announcements for SF15, 17, 18, 21 and tickets for 16, 17, 18.

And a temporary break as it's getting close to SF38 launch time.

A book would be unlikely, but maybe an article for SF40 (retitled 40 Years of course.)

I'm going to try to finish The Coolidge years before fading away till SF39.

Alien Invasion themed films with everything from a friendly invasion (Starman) to the traditional attacks from Mars (War of Worlds and Mars Attacks.) It Came From Outer space in 3D, before 3D became all too common. Strange Days made the year 2000 much cooler than it actually was (going to be.)

Bugs, Brains and other beasties, that's a pretty wide ranging theme. Contact was interesting, it does have some plot holes and a disappointing alien.  Them is always welcome at the 'thon. Gattaca may be well done but is still about a guy with a heart condition tricking his way into space. Soylent Green is people. Man With Two Brains was very funny. Space Truckers a fun little film from Stuart Gordon.
We were selling out the Coolidge every year btw.
