TiVo this! can’t-miss geek movies on TV, 05.08-05.14

I scour the skeds so you don’t have to, and point out the best geek highlights of the week in some unexpected places: Turner Classic Movies and The Sundance Channel, which show films uncut and uninterrupted (and sometimes in letterbox). But ya gotta turn to The SciFi Channel once in a while, too, commercials and editing be damned — there’s nothing like geeking out in front of the tube with built-in breaks for munchie refills and snark attacks.

(All times are Eastern. Times between midnight and 5:59am actually refer to the previous date. In other words, 2am Saturday really means the overnight twilight zone between Saturday night and Sunday morning. Links in movie titles go to my review.)
MONDAY 05.08

5:30PM: Watch the Skies! Documentary about SF films since the 1950s. Includes intereviews with George Lucas, Steven Spielberg, James Cameron, and Ridley Scott.

9:00PM: The Yes Men. Activist geeks point call out corporate nonsense in this funny-scary 2004 documentary.


2:15AM: A Day at the Races. Marx Brothers madness.

FRIDAY 05.12

2:00AM: Princess Mononoke. Miyazaki’s new classic anime.


2:00PM: The Princess and the Pirate. This 1944 comedy starring Bob Hope and Virginia Mayo is kinda The Princess Bride of its day.

It’s an undead marathon all day long:

10:00 AM: The Lost Boys
12:00 PM: Bram Stoker’s Dracula
2:30 PM: Dark Prince: The True Story of Dracula
4:30 PM: The Ninth Gate
11:00 PM: Return of the Living Dead 3
3:00 AM: The Howling

  1. there is no religion or society in this world (or the next, if one believes that) that is good for, or to, women. if only women would wake up and believe it…
