"Y'all know me, know how I earn a livin'. I'll catch this bird for you, but it ain't gonna be easy. Bad fish! Not like going down to the pond and chasing bluegills and tommycods. This shark, swallow ya whole. Little shakin', little tenderizin', and down you go. And we gotta do it quick, that'll bring back the tourists, that'll put all your businesses on a payin' basis. But it's not gonna be pleasant! I value my neck a lot more than three thousand bucks, chief. I'll find him for three, but I'll catch him, and kill him, for ten. But you've gotta make up your minds. If you want to stay alive, then ante up. If you want to play it cheap, be on welfare the whole winter. I don't want no volunteers, I don't want no mates, there's too many captains on this island. Ten thousand dollars for me by myself. For that you get the head, the tail, the whole damn thing."

100 Days of Futureshock - The List!


Cosmic greetings this New Year, my minions! We're back with a brand new mission - to bring you our deep, deep insights into a new realm of moviedom - SCI FI!

Ooh, it's so deep, baby. You know you feel it.

So we bring to you the official "100 Days of Futureshock" blog! In this episode, we will track over 70 years worth of science fiction movies, from Fritz Lang's "Metropolis" to to Alfonso Cuaron's epic "Children of Men" and beyond.

The rules are a little different this time. First off, I will be watching the movie first and blogging afterwards instead of the other way around, which was stupid. Okay, it wasn't really stupid, because the goal of the "100 Days of Horror" challenge was to figure out what it was that attracted me to horror films. Now? Hell, now I'm just frigging bored and miss talking about movies. So now, instead of working towards a Halloween celebration of a "Halloween" double bill, we will instead end our Sci-Fi challenge with the mother of all modern sci-fi trilogies - "The Matrix Trilogy!"

Secondly ... well, that's it. The format will be a little different and I will include more in-depth commentary than before when I care to. Also, I'll include favorite scenes as well as memorable quotes and even a "Best Scene Ever" entry as well. Who knows, we'll see ...

So we'll keep the niceties to a dull roar this time around and just present you with the list to beat all lists! Finely crafted! Expertly honed! Lousy with mistakes and probably a few repeats!

Play along at home! Sync your Netflix and your Blockbuster Online accounts (does that still exist? I dunno)! And enjoy our bizarre take on film!
