__________________________________________________

All Sci-Fi's Saturday Live Chat hasn't been doing well lately, so I've decided to try something new and exciting. Cool

Starting on Friday, September 30th, All Sci-Fi will host a chat which offers classic sci-f movies at 8:00 pm — instead of 6:00 EST.

All the movies will, of course, be available on WeTransfer to anyone who wants to join us! Very Happy

But wait! There's more!

Starting on Saturday, October 1st, All Sci-Fi will host a chat — also at 8:00 PM — which offers the finest non-sci-fi motion pictures released in the 1950s, based on the playlist for NBC's Saturday Night at the Movies, which premiered in 1961! Very Happy

I have downloaded more than 30 of the great films which NBC presented during that period, and I'm inviting the members of All Sci-Fi to share them with All Sci-Fi's chat group. Very Happy

I realize that few of our members will be able to attend both events each week — but I'm hoping that several of our folks will join us for a least one of the two nights.

Be sure to check the thread which provides the schedule for both the ASF Friday Night Chat and ASF's Saturday Night at the Movies!

Here's a few samples of the features our new upcoming Saturday night chat.will offer.


______ BENEATH THE 12 MILE REEF (1952) trailer

_______________ On the Riviera (1951) Trailer

_________________ Soldier Of Fortune (1955)

__ The Enemy Below Theatrical Movie Trailer (1957)

Just in case anybody is wondering if I can actually pair up classic sci-fi movies on Friday nights with big-budget 20th Century Fox classics on Saturday nights for All Sci-Fi's Friday & Saturday Live Chats (<— link), here's the tentative schedule for the coming weekends — all the way from November 2nd, 2022 until January 28th, 2023! Shocked

Frankly I've had fun matching up pairs of features so that they offered some type of "common element". (You'll see what I mean when you read the list below.)

Some of the pairs have obvious common elements, while others do not.

So, here are the Friday/Saturday double features for our upcoming chat "weekends", along with the reasons I chose to pair the classic sci-fi movies with the 20th Century Fox features.
_______________________________________________

11/4-5

The Day the Earth Caught Fire (1951)

Red Skies of Montana (1952)


Common Element: You guess it — fire! The 20th Century Fox movie is about smokejumpers.
_________________________________

11/11-12

The Flame Barrier (1958)

White Witch Doctor (1953)


Common Element: The African jungle is the setting for both movies.
_________________________________

11/18-19

Valley of Gwangi (1969)

The Lost World (1960)


Common Element: Dinosaurs, of course. (Duh.)
_________________________________

20,000 Leagues Under the Sea (1953)

The Enemy Below (1957)


Common Element: Submarines, of course. (Duh, again.)
_________________________________

11/25-26

Missile to the Moon (1968) (colorized and B&W versions)

Woman’s World (1954)


Common Element: One movie is about an all-female lunar civilization, and the other one is a melodrama which focuses on a group of rich wives in New York city.
_________________________________

12/2-3

7th Voyage of Sinbad (1958)

King Of The Khyber Rifle (1953)


Common Element: Two olorful adventures in Arabian lands!
_________________________________

12/9-10

Flight to Mars (1951)

Soldier of Fortune (1953)


Common Element: Two romantic adventures on distant shores — one of which is VERY distant! Shocked
_________________________________

12/16-17

In Like Flint (1967)

How to Marry a Millionaire (1953)


Common Element: An extravagant secret agent stars in the first one, and three extravagant female super-stars are in the second.
_________________________________

12/23-24

War of the Colossal Beast (1958)

The Tall Men (1955)


Common Element: One is about a guy who's literally tall, and the other is about a group of Texas cattlemen who are figuratively tall (thus the title of the movie). Smile
_________________________________

12/30-31

Earth vs the Spider (1958)

Broken Arrow (1950)


Common Element: Okay, ya got me on this one. But they're both wonderful movies. I suppose we could say that the second one was sort of "Earth vs the Red Man", since it's all about the sad plight of Native Americans.
_________________________________

1/6-7

Beginning Of The End (1967)

What a Way to Go (1964)


Common Element: This one is an amusing play on the titles.

"It's the beginning of the end! But what a way to go!" Laughing
_________________________________

1/15-14

Devil Girl From Mars (1954)

The Desert Fox (1951
)

Common Element: Ummm . . . Okay, I got nothin' here except that they both have words that start with DE.
_________________________________

1/20-21

Target Earth (1954)

Monkey Business (1952)


Common Element: Well . . . uh . . . the first one has robots that can't be taken seriously. And the same can said for Cary Grant in the second one.
_________________________________

1/27-28

Attack of the Crab Monsters (1957)

It Happens Every Spring (1949)


Common Element: Okay, I give up. Somebody please make a suggestion. But I had to put these two fine movies on the schedule.

2/3-4

Queen of Outer Space (1958)

TO BE ANNOUNCED


Common Element:
_______________________________________________

Gentlemen, I promise you this.

Even if All Sci-Fi's Friday & Saturday Live Chats are simply not popular with our members, I will still have all of the scheduled movies available on WeTransfer each week for anyone who wants to download them to enjoy, whenever they want. Very Happy

And I'll have All Sci-Fi's Chatzy Room (< — LINK) open at the scheduled times each weekend for any members who want to drop in!

Guys, I ask you — does any other forum on the web offer a deal as friendly as this one? Very Happy

And yet, even if no one shows up from time to time, I'll just settle down in my secret, hidden Bud Cave and enjoy the scheduled movies . . . all by myself.

i just downloaded a fine 1.5 GB version of War Games (1983) from Vimeo, which I'll be uploading to WeTransfer to make it available to any of All Sci-Fi's member who'd like to get it, free of charge. Very Happy

And I'll also be scheduling it for a January All Sci-Fi's Friday Live Chat (<— link) soon.

Does anybody know of another message board that offers deals like this?

No? I didn't think so. Very Happy
