They've shown it once before IIRC, it's a. very interesting way to make a film.

The whole thing is available all over the place online, though I suppose not very legally. I just bought the Criterion Blu-Ray that combines La Jetée with another Marker film, San Soleil.

I wonder which version they'll show -- the English language or French language film? Marker supervised both, IIRC.

As an aside, TCM is showing Sans Soleil before La Jetee.

Re: TCM Genre movies schedule...

I've had too many distractions lately to keep an eye on TCM and have suffered the consequences; I missed Die, Monster, Die, The Illustrated Man and Horror Express-- and probably others. So I'm going to try to keep up from now on-- until blindsided by other distractions.

So tomorrow morning at 5:15am, we have The Thing From Another World, Saturday morning at 3:45am we have Heavy Metal and then Attack of the 50-Foot Woman at 7:45. That's it through the weekend. I'll look further ahead later on.

Horror Express was actually pretty fun, although I was horrified that they misspelled Christopher Lee's name in the opening credits. And he was the star of the film!

"Cristopher Lee," really?

Re: TCM Genre movies schedule...

Reminds me of Marv Wolfman's novelization of Crisis On Infinite Earths, where the spelling of one chapter title was wrong-- I think it was "Froty Three." Of course, I think they forgot to send that book to the editor. Literally every page had typos.

I caught the last five minutes or so of Horror Express and it looked pretty good. I was really bummed that I missed it.

Great moment in typos: "Bram Stroker's Dracula."

Yes, that appeared on a book cover once.

Re: TCM Genre movies schedule...

One of my all-time favorite typos, though not genre, was the back of Al Stewart's Year of the Cat album listing "On the Bornder"... and the CD release just copied that for a whole new generation!

Re: TCM Genre movies schedule...

Don't get me started about "Rouge Queen" by L. Sprague de Camp. Or that restaurant menu that listed "Sweat and Sour Pork."

Sometimes I think the world needs a good copyeditor . . . .

Maybe it was one of those "adult" versions.

Going through the first weekend in April, we have on Saturday the 7th, The Gamma People on at 2:15am and Wild, Wild Planet at 3:45am, then The Invisible Man at 9:15am (nothing on Sunday).

Re: TCM Genre movies schedule...

I recorded Heavy Metal overnight and just watched it. It's the first time I've ever seen that film, though I've read one or two scathing deconstructions of it online, so I had an idea what to expect. Mostly it deserved the scathing; the majority of it is uneven and self-indulgent, and the frame story/unifying thread of the Loc-Nar is completely incoherent.

However, the Moebius-inspired Taarna segment was very impressive, much better than the rest (at least until the ending). Good animation and designs, and great music by Elmer Bernstein.

Re: TCM Genre movies schedule...

It helps to see Heavy Metal in a theater at midnight with the volume cranked to 12 with the smell of marijuana (or Plutonium Nyborg) in the air. At least, that's how I first saw it.

I wish they hadn't botched up Heavy Metal 2000 so badly because I'd love to see a follow-up in the same vain. I know there was some effort to do so but I think it got bogged down in development hell.

Looking at The Fifth Element, I'm pretty sure Luc Besson must have been inspired by it.

Re: TCM Genre movies schedule...

I never cared for Heavy Metal the magazine, and the movie didn't impress me a whole lot either.

I've got to pay more attention to the movie names on the TCM schedule, rather than just the genre icons. Tarzan the Fearless from 1933 with Buster Crabbe was on yesterday, and I only caught the last fifteen minutes or so.
