Theme weeks for December and beyond

For December I hope to take on two theme weeks which will be on Christmas specials week and Christmas episodes week.

For next year I am hoping to take on the following theme weeks at a rate of one per month.

70’s sci-fi

80’s horror

90’s super heroes

Bela Lugosi

Boris Karloff

Ray Harryhausen

Werewolves

Godzilla

Jungle action

Mad scientists

Alien invasion

Insects

October theme weeks plus one

JIM-halloween

So I’m into Ghost week here at my blog. Next week will be Mummy week and the week of Halloween will be Halloween episodes week. However I decided to add one more. The beginning of November is a sad time for me. It’s always like well Halloween is over so horror movies go away, no more costumes, decorations or all that for another year. I know it has to end and we move on to other holidays. Yet it irks me when Wal-Mart start boxing up a lot Halloween stuff a few days before the holiday. Stores and other places tend to take down the decorations as quickly as possible. However to make the transition a little easier I am going to add one more Halloween related week the first week of November. I’m calling it Halloween leftovers week for lack of a better name. Any topic I wanted to get to in October but didn’t will be tossed into that week which will likely include me sharing some pictures of my cheap Halloween decorations before I box them up. However it will also include reviews of a couple of bargain bin movies I bought this month including Halloween 3 and Madhouse with Vincent Price plus maybe 1-2 more. I’m just stubborn enough to keep the season going a week beyond when all sensible people call it quits.

Upcoming themes and possible features

Just thinking ahead and wanted to throw some ideas out there. I was thinking of making one week per month theme week where I might do three reviews under a certain topic and maybe have a list or a short write up that week that went along with the topic. So far I was considering these…

Hammer Time in the 60’s-1960’s Hammer Films

The Price is right-Vincent Price week

Back for more-80’s horror sequels week

Big, bad and in black and white-1950’s giant monster week

70’s made for TV movie week

It’s also possible that I’ll do Superman and Star Trek weeks when their new movies come out.

***Feel free to suggest a topic.

Also I am almost half way through the series the Starlost in  my weekly Starlost Sundays column. So I still have more than two months worth to do, but was thinking ahead as to what I want to tackle next. I likely want to do a show that didn’t go more than a season so I have to do it for a few months and then move to a different show. I was thinking of doing one of these next next.

Flash Fridays-I’d take on the one season show from 90-91 that followed the fastest man in the world.

Voyagers-No flashy name for this yet, but I loved this one season show.

UFO-No fancy name yet either. Bizarre and sometimes great show.

Sanctuary Sundays with Logan’s Run-I’d take on the short lived 1977 show that just got a DVD release last year.

Simian Sunday with Planet of the apes the TV series-One of my favorite half season shows ever.

I’m am also considering some one season 70’s Saturday morning kid’s shows including Ark 2, Space Academy and the Monster Squad.

***Let me any of these sound interesting.
