A SciFi Christmas?
Taking a break from their usual horror fare, well moviewise anyway, the SciFi Channel has take a step to put the Sci back in the Fi. Their Christmas Movie Marathon actually has some SF-related movies. At least they aren’t all fantasy or horror (some would say that fantasy = horror…). Gremlins/2 are more Sci than not. The Neverending Story/II ARE fantasy, but at least, contrary to the title, they do mercifully end. Nick Fury is comic Sci Fi. Bad comic SF, but still. In fact, the next 3 movies are comic SF. At least Batman doesn’t suck. Little Shop of Horrors. Hmm. Not sure how to classify this one. Some Fantasy some SF. At least Steve Martin is a riot as the sadistic dentist. I remember Matinee as being semi-humorous. Not sure its SF though. But, with the plethora of comic movies, SF is here to stay on the SF Channel. At least for one day.
