December SF Movie Marathon

For the past two Decembers, I've attempted (and completed!) a month-long movie marathon, a daily dose for a total of 31 movies by the end of 2016. The first time, it was all indie SF films. Last year, all spy films. This year, I'm heading back into science-fiction. And while I'll be MOSTLY watching indies, the real "theme" is availability. Almost all the movies in the list below are on Netflix, a few I have on DVD awaiting viewing, a couple are coming to theaters and I'm eager to see them. All I can promise is that I've never seen ANY of them. That was important. It's about discovery, not about watching Blade Runner for the 50th time (although I really should do that too, to be safe).

To help me structure the marathon, I've split the films into seven categories, one a day, though there's some flexibility, depending on when I manage to go see those theatrical releases. Here's what I came up with (films in alphabetical order, will choose on the day, according to whim and people present):
Thursdays: POSTAPOCALYPSE (because 2016 will be the death of us)
Beyond the Black Rainbow
The Book of Eli
Embers
Young Ones
Z for Zachariah
Fridays: ROMANCE
After
Comet
Creative Control
Frequencies
Upside Down
Saturdays: HOW SCIENCE CHANGES US
Advantageous
I Origins
Listening
The Lobster
Womb
Sundays: SPACE...
Harlock: Space Pirate
Passengers
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story
Treasure Planet
Mondays: TIME TRAVEL
The Man from the Future
Paradox
Project Almanac
Synchronicity
Tuesdays: CATCH ALL (they either didn't fit anywhere, or that day was full)
Dark Skies
Mr. Nobody
Terminus
Victor Frankenstein
Wednesdays: MEMORY & IDENTITY
The Congress
The Reconstruction of William Zero
Reversion
Self/Less

(Edit for posterity: Two of the films on the list were not available to me in December, so I switched them out for Real Genius and Spectral, which don't fit in any real category.)

Catch the action on This Week in Geek and on each subsequent Sunday!
