Oh, you don't have to sell me on Richard Matheson. I love his work and I still have a nice letter that he sent me one time.

You really should check out Zardoz if you haven't. It's usually the butt of jokes but it's creative and thought-provoking (though ponderous) and totally 70's.
I agree. It's a bit psychedelic, but it's from a day when SF in movies and TV was idea-driven, rather than just a synonym for "action movie."

Cool.

Please bear with me. After being Richard's editor for twenty years or so, preaching the gospel of Richard Matheson is practically second nature these days.

And he had damn well better be featured in the Oscars' "Memoriam" reel this year or there will be hell to pay.

I saw!

I admit I was getting a bit nervous as the reel played on and he still hadn't been shown . . .

But I'm told that the music playing during the montage was actually from "Somewhere in Time," so I guess I didn't need to worry. (I didn't recognize it myself, but various others did.)

Re: TCM Genre movies schedule...

April offers slim pickings of mostly familiar films, but a couple of notable nights with a few interesting rarities:

TUE 4/1
9:45 PM: Sleeper (1973): Woody Allen cryogenic comedy.

SAT 4/5
3:00 AM: Soylent Green ('73)
6:00 PM: Forbidden Planet ('56)
8:00 PM: Field of Dreams ('89)
10:00 PM: Angels in the Outfield ('51)

SUN 4/6
Midnight: It Happens Every Spring ('49): "A scientist invents a baseball that can't be hit."
2:00 PM: Charly ('68)
4:00 PM: The Incredible Mr. Limpet ('64)

TUE 4/8
1:30 AM: Them! ('54): The giant-ants classic.
3:15 AM: The Cosmic Monsters ('58): Originally The Strange World of Planet X. British entry in the giant-arthropod genre. Starring Forrest Tucker.
4:45 AM: The Wasp Woman ('59): Roger Corman wasp-monster movie.

WED 4/9
Midnight: Modern Times ('36): Chaplin film whose first act borders on sci-fi technocratic dystopia.

SAT 4/12
2:15 AM: The Adventures of Robin Hood ('38): Errol Flynn again.
4:15 AM: A Challenge for Robin Hood ('68): Starring Barrie Ingham.

MON 4/14
Midnight: The Mysterious Island ('29): Lionel Barrymore as Captain Nemo. Despite the title, it's based on Nemo's backstory and is thus a prequel of sorts to 20,000 Leagues.
2:00 AM: Genocide ('68): Originally titled Konchû daisensô (War of the Insects). Japanese monster movie directed by Kazui Nihonmatsu, but apparently more serious than most from this era.
3:30 AM: The X from Outer Space ('67): The other of Nihonmatsu's only two feature films. Originally Uchuu daikaiju Girara, literally "Giant Space Monster Guilala."
9:00 AM: The Adventures of Robin Hood again.

SUN 4/20
3:45 AM: The Terror ('63): Roger Corman horror with Boris Karloff, Jack Nicholson, and Dick Miller.

MON 4/21
6:00 AM: Dr. Goldfoot and the Bikini Machine ('65): Vincent Price slumming.

Some less familiar offerings is good. Would Modern Times be considered steampunk?

I'm wary about applying such labels retroactively. There's a difference in intent between a futurist work that was actually produced in the past based on the assumptions of the time and a modern work that consciously embraces a nostalgic, anachronistic vision of the future or of a conjectural alternate past.

I agree, it was just a joke as I had hoped the would suggest.

Re: TCM Genre movies schedule...

I just got genre whiplash, by switching from BBC America [TNG] to TCM [Soylent Green].

Can't go too much further than that on TV lol... and I got Celia Lovsky in SG right away to boot, a nice bonus!

Re: TCM Genre movies schedule...

While sprawled on the couch yesterday morning following a molar extraction, I caught the silent version of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde on TCM. It was really very good. It also occurred to me, since I was mildly stoned on pain killers at the time, that my version of Mr. Hyde is a lot more boring than Dr. Jekyll's-- more like a Mr. Hippie.

Re: TCM Genre movies schedule...

I saw Charly last year. It's pretty good. It's about a mentally and emotionally stunted man who undergoes treatment to make him smarter and he ends up becoming super intelligent. It stars Cliff Robertson who won an Academy Award for Best Actor because of this role. This movie was remade in 2000 as Flowers For Algernon and starred Matthew Modine. Both movies are based on the novel Flowers For Algernon.

Re: TCM Genre movies schedule...

Update: Apparently, due to Mickey Rooney's recent passing, the schedule for this coming Sunday night through Monday early morning (4/13-4/14) has been changed, with The Mysterious Island, Genocide, and The X From Outer Space no longer on the schedule for the month -- or indeed for the next three months. Which is too bad, because I was interested in both of the Japanese films.

The only thing that counts as a genre title in the replacement schedule is the 1935 A Midsummer Night's Dream (with Rooney as Puck), which airs at 4:30 AM on Monday 4/14.
