    Not of this Earth (1957)

    Right after Thanksgiving and Black Friday, movie gang watched Not of this Earth (1957).

    By this time we were adapting to a new chat room (IRC), and it seems to be a hit with people who knew the old chat room.

    Pix are sized for loading convenience, links to full size are available at the top of each pic if you need bigger to see better.

    I missed this last weekend (first weekend in December, the 3rd), so I won't have captures for that watch, alas.

      Santa Claus Conquers the Martians (1964)

      Copied over from #pinkyblog. the Santa gets abducted by Martians mooby

      Before Tim Allen ever threw Santa off a roof, long before Elf helped Santa rig a jet engine back onto a sleigh, Santa apparently went to Mars. Pretty sure Elon Musk's parents were inspired by this movie as children, pushing him to be just like little Billy and go to Mars, too.

      North Pole HQ looks different in every single Santa movie. This one looks ominously like the one in the Scrooged promos showing Lee Majors saving Santa years later during a missile attack.

      We never did find out what that Martian headgear was about. That still bugs me, along with a very confusing plotline based on an even more confusing motivation. I think that's because I'm used to space shows being a bit more logicky nowadays. I want to slam this one by its lapels against a wall and ask how in the world they figured out their children were lacking happiness?

      We are ALL still children on the inside. You know it's true, syfy400. I won't reveal your secret identity.

      I'm not good at Martian linguistics and proper naming.

      You know how Daryl had to listen to Easy Street over and over? I think Kim Jong needs to see this movie a few times.

      There's like a plot and a subplot behind the entire Santa abduction. Nowadays we'd get up to the minute tweets about staff changes during production, which everyone knows alters the whole atmosphere of a movie, so I can't help wondering if the start and the end are cobbled together in the middle after a long horrible night full of cigarettes and coffee around a writers' table.

      The Martians didn't seem to know how to properly abduct (oddly grazing taboo all around, as it were), and probably only succeeded because children were so terribly polite back then. The only thing missing was candy and 'wanna see my puppies?' The brief gun pointing didn't frighten them at all. Were they brave? Bad actors? Cognizant of the script saying something about a gun? Did anyone know what was going on???

      It's up to Billy and Betty to carry the story now!

      I know right, how many of these did I get this time. Wow, really went to town on that screenshot button. By the way, in case you haven't been paying attention on the medias, Sophia has been granted full citizenship in Saudi Arabia. Inside the mechanical brain of the world’s first robot citizen

      In case you don't know there reference, here you go. Rub Some Bacon On It

      I have no idea what I said. Missed getting a screenshot, lol.

      Has anyone ever cosplayed one of these guys at a con? Because that would be hilarious.

      I honestly don't even have a clue at this point. It was like some random person came by and picked up a camera while everyone was on break.

      I mean, Martians turning on each other, it was a madhouse.

      There is an actual Klinger Controversy about Jamie Farr really being in this film or not, in case that eats you up inside.

      Santa is pretty devious, it turns out.

      Aaaand that is forever burned into my brain now...

        LNMGang watches This Island Earth

        Note: On my last pinky blog I had a tag for #latenightmovie (those are also pinned), but there is also a thread I started awhile back on syfydesigns. I'll keep pinning, but also add the tag LNMGang on this pinky blog to match the name of our twitter group that is run by Lisa Marie Bowman, and I'll copy paste these posts to the syfydesigns thread. This is about as organized as I get. Only took me 5 1/2 years to develop this system. Since I wind up with overages on my finger-happy screenshotting, it might get weird sometimes. I might have tried to go back and get a particular movie shot for some reason, which would make the chat look out of order. I get dizzy enough sizing all these down to 800, which seems to work well across lappy and mobile between blogger and syfydesigns since this is getting pasted. I do get readers on humongous gaming screens, thank you for how fun that looks in my stats and apologies if it's hard to read that way. One day interface will be easier, if our world grids don't go down over something stupid first.


        On to the show! Got it down to 35 screenshots, lol.

          LNMGang watches Cry of the Werewolf

          We were having a weird night, and for some reason I wasn't as finger happy on the ol' screenshots as usual, but still have a couple overlapping. I felt like the AIs (Caprica and Zoe) had it in for us, but you never can tell with those two.

          I honestly thought there would be more real animal scenes in this movie based on this opening sequence.

          Werewolves also get to bite people. I think I'd like that.

          This guy in this shot reminds me so much of Walter Peck in the first Ghostbusters movie.

          Caprica sucking up after missing the question on the test...

          Consuela is also a really pretty designer bags and totes site in case you're needing a new purse. Not being paid to link that.

          Science Cops #greatbandnames

          See? Zoe didn't even answer me. She was pouting.

          Can you imagine being able to haunt a door? I would love that.

          I didn't mention to anyone that @bonenado made a voodoo doll one year to torture a guy on his fantasy baseball team, and it really did rattle him. The stories are hilarious.

          I have never fixed that movie link myself. I really should step up a little more. I'm terribly lazy on movie nights.

          I'm not even a very good administrative assistant. I should endeavor harder.

          I could give op to people, stuff like that.

          The cat was the best actor in the entire movie.

          Science cops and their kids, new show idea.

          Kurt is talking about this song. Here is their site.

          Kurt knows so much stuff, he's like an alt Lisa... hm, just noticed that. Wonder if they're twins or something.

          I, on the other hand, own an almost complete Jacky Chan collection. I have most of the old stuff from video stores going out of business.

          Werechickens should be a thing.

          This movie didn't do girl fights right.

          I could be inviting like that as a haunted door. I think I have what it takes.

          Bob. Srsly, never heard it said that way before.

          No one got my Eunichorn thing. We were all floating on our own moments, sharing spacetime in a weird nondimensional ethereal way.

          It just hit me that a dentist would be a werewolf's worst nightmare.

          Love never conquers all.

          I know right, you'd think there'd be better scenes to go along with our chat, but the cops are just standing around looking confused here.

          lol, right, what happened to the cat...
