This group meets on the first Tuesday of each month to view SF
and other genre related films.
You thought Santa Claus Conquers the Martians was bad at our
Christmas in July. Get ready for Sharknado 4. More "star
studded cameos", more sharks, more laughs.
Sharknado: The 4th Awakens is a 2016 American disaster
comedy sci-fi horror television film and the fourth installment in
the Sharknado film series, following Sharknado, Sharknado 2:
The Second One, and Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No!.
May's selection, Hollywoodland, was a hit with viewers. The month's theme of "dress for
success" and how we associate certain things with clothes/costumes, was well met with this
film. Hollywoodland is about how television's Superman, George Reeves, died - or, more
specifically, the theories surrounding his death. Did his girlfriend "accidently" kill him, the
mob or did he commit suicide? All scenarios are depicted in the film. Adrien Brody, Diane
Lane, Ben Affleck and Bob Hoskins were all very good. Only one of our many attendees had
seen the film previously (and he didn't remember much about it). The iconic and well known
costume of Superman matches May's theme. Good selection. Audience enjoyed the movie.
Fun continued at the Ridge Diner. Interesting evening.
|Robot Monster (1953)
Our viewing selection for the month was Robot Monster (1953). To call it one of the worst
films ever made is too kind. At least the MST3000 version made it fun. Ro-Man, the alien
gorilla with a fish bowl on his head was more ridiculous than terrifying, but it made for some
funny comments. Conversation continued at the Ridge Diner.
Next month's selection of Sharknado 4 seems like a step up. Note that because the first
Tuesday is July 4th, we will be showing Sharknado 4 on the 18th instead.
