Sci-Fi Month 2015: 30 Days of Sci-Fi Movies + Live Tweet

Ever since I was a kid, I have been a keen movie watcher. I am tempted to say that film is my favourite medium, but I don’t think I can say that outright, since I still place great value in reading books. In October, I challenged myself to watch thirty-one horror movies during the course of the month. It was a great way to watch more movies and I enjoyed doing the challenge a lot. Therefore, for Sci-Fi Month 2015, I’m going to challenge myself to watch at least thirty science fiction films in November.

Below is a list of the movies I will be watching this month:

Also, I’m a member of the International Geek Girl Pen Pals Club where I am one of the coordinators of Iggle Flicks. Every month, we watch and discuss a number of different movies, and we also run Twitter watch-alongs; it’s a fun way to watch movies with people over the internet. So, I’ve decided to live tweet four different science fiction movies during November and it would be great if people could join me.

Here are the dates and times of the four movies I’ll be live tweeting:

1. Galaxy Quest (1999)
Sunday, 8th November @ 2 AM GMT / 1 PM AEDT

2. RoboCop (1987)
Sunday, 15th November @ 2 AM GMT / 1 PM AEDT

3. The Matrix (1999)
Sunday, 22nd November @ 2 AM GMT / 1 PM AEDT

4. The Fifth Element (1997)
Sunday, 29th November @ 2 AM GMT / 1 PM AEDT

If you are interested in live tweeting with me, follow me on Twitter, @molly_tornado.

Is anyone else planning on live tweeting science fiction movies or running watch-alongs during Sci-Fi Month?

Sci-Fi Month 2015

It is officially Sci-Fi Month 2015! Hosted by Sci-Fi Month founder, Rinn Reads, and Over the Effing Rainbow, Sci-Fi Month is a month-long blog event that encourages bloggers to celebrate all things science fiction throughout November.

Personally, I have always been drawn to science fiction, mainly in the forms of movies and television. It is a suitable medium to explore our humanity, our future, the scope of what we might be able to accomplish, and how our world might look in the years to come. It is exciting to take the world we know and combine it with new landscapes and technologies that could become a part of our reality some day.

My own blogging plans for Sci-Fi Month 2015 are not ambitious, but I do have a few things in the works. I will update this post throughout the month with links to all the posts I make related to this event.

My Sci-Fi Month 2015 schedule so far:

1. Introductory post [1/11/15]
2. 30 Days of Sci-Fi Movies + Live Tweet [1/11/15]
3. Sci-Fi Comic Books on my Pull List
4. My Five / Ten Favourite Sci-Fi Movies
5. Australian Sci-Fi Movies

As much as I am looking forward to writing about sci-fi, I am even more excited to read from others partaking in Sci-Fi Month 2015. Even though I like the genre, I am not what I could call well-versed on the subject, so I am keen to possibly learn more about the genre, but also to find new books, movies, television shows, and video games that I can enjoy.
