STAR TREK III: THE SEARCH FOR SPOCK (30th anniversary screening)
1984 / 35mm / Dir. Leonard Nimoy / 105 min.

STAR TREK II: THE WRATH OF KHAN was one of the biggest box office hits of 1982, so Paramount was anxious to quickly ramp up a sequel.  Although Trek fans generally loved KHAN, the film’s decision to kill off Leonard Nimoy’s Mr. Spock was a controversial one, to say the least.  As its title implies, STAR TREK III: THE SEARCH FOR SPOCK focuses on Admiral James T. Kirk (William Shatner) and the crew of the Enterprise as they attempt to retrieve the body of their fallen comrade.  However, they run afoul of a cruel Klingon commander (BACK TO THE FUTURE’s Christopher Lloyd) who plots to steal the rejuvenating secrets of the planet Genesis for his own nefarious purposes.  While not as lucrative as either STAR TREK II or the oddly light-hearted sequel STAR TREK IV: THE VOYAGE HOME, THE SEARCH FOR SPOCK is an intelligent, enjoyable, and underrated entry in the TREK film series.


DUNE (30th anniversary screening)
1984 / 35mm / Dir. David Lynch / 137 min.

Frank Herbert’s epic science-fiction novel DUNE was long considered unfilmable, though several directors—most famously, Alejandro Jodorowsky—tried to bring the classic to the screen during the 1970s, only to see their projects ultimately fall apart.  But in 1984, acclaimed avant-garde filmmaker David Lynch followed his art-house successes ERASERHEAD and THE ELEPHANT MAN with an ambitious, big budget adaptation of Herbert’s masterpiece.  Lynch’s DUNE is infamous in the realm of sci-fi films: it is a divisive movie, one that fans tend to either love or hate.  Many of the film’s perceived weaknesses can be traced to the fact that producer Dino DeLaurentis forced Lynch to excise over 45 minutes of footage in order to get the running time down to a more reasonable (but still lengthy) 2 hours and 17 minutes.  But flawed or not, DUNE’s story of political intrigue, galactic warfare and religious allegory set in the far-off future is visually stunning and truly epic in score.  Featuring an impressive cast (Kyle MacLachlan, Jurgen Prochnow, Patrick Stewart, Max von Sydow, and Sting, among others) and an orchestral/rock hybrid score by the band Toto (!), DUNE is definitely an interesting film that deserves a second look.


Friday, September 19: Exhumed Films Summer of Sci-Fi Part III: Alien Invaders!
Tickets: $15 general admission/$10 IHP members; show at 8pm 

1986 / 35mm / Dir. James Cameron / 137 min.
James Cameron followed up his hit film THE TERMINATOR by writing and directing this sequel to Ridley Scott’s 1979 blockbuster, ALIEN. ALIENS opts for action and suspense rather than the “Sci-Fi Haunted House” tone of the original, but Cameron’s film is nevertheless an impressive accomplishment that equals its predecessor and established the film mythology utilized by subsequent sequels and video games. Following the events of ALIEN, lone survivor Ellen Ripley (Sigourney Weaver) agrees to accompany a battalion of marines sent to investigate the planet where her crew was decimated by a single alien organism. But when millitary arrogance and massive firepower prove no match for an army of aliens, it’s up to Ripley to face her fears and take command in the battle for survival! 
1986 / 35mm / Dir. Stephen Herek / 82 min.
This low budget Sci-Fi comedy lifts from both 1950s era monster movies and contemporary films like GREMLINS and GHOULIES; nevertheless, it is a clever and enjoyable film in its own right that spawned a slew of sequels. Scott Grimes plays Brad, a teenager whose family farm is besieged by carnivorous creatures from outer space. Brad must team up with an outer space bounty hunter to defeat the evil invaders before they consume the entire town! Also starring Dee Wallace, who has some prior experience dealing with extraterrestrials.
