i missed gojira 15 years ago so i'm psyched for that
stargate was on continuous loop in a small screen at a marathon about 20 years ago and nobody came. if the marathon has an obsession with kurt russell (and i think it does) then why don't they show "soldier"? it is an awesome flick and stop confusing it with "universal soldier" that claud vandamm.
"things to come" has been my suggestion for many years. it is very timely because the way things are now we could easily find ourselves in the same situation in a few years.

I probably havenít seen Godzilla, but the others are definitely classics.  Actually watched Stargate just a year or two ago when we started rewatching the associated show on Netflix.  These seem like solid choices.

garen was playing the godzilla trailer on the podcast. briefly at the very end we saw the face of raymond burr. i immedialy i shouted :"noooooooo". garen came back on the screen and announced that he was uncertain as to which version would be at the marathon. and he was apologetic and said he would much prefer the original. i would have phrased it more like "futt raymond burr"

Just wanted to note that I confirmed that the version of ALIEN we are showing is the original Theatrical cut.

The Director's cut showed at SF/29
