Two more SF/31 films

I know you don't care about this, but I read each and every one of your Arisia posts, so there.

Two more films have been booked for SF/31: STEAMBOY (2004) and George Romero's THE CRAZIES (1973).

THE CRAZIES is a great programming coup, as it's been another one of those films we've wanted at the Marathon for a long time now (the trailer, with its bombastic announcer breathlessly warning viewers of THE CRAAAZIES!! is a long-time Marathon favorite, usually shown alongside the FLASH GORDON trailer.)

We apparently have access to both subbed and dubbed prints of STEAMBOY, with the crowd split 50-50 on which they'd like to see. I said personally, if the film is shown in the first 12 hours of the 'thon, the subtitled print would rock, but any time afterwards, we gotta watch it dubbed due to glazed eye syndrome. We watched several episodes of a German 1950s sci-fi show in the last hours of the Dedham marathon, and I don't think I parsed any of the subtitles. None! I just remember they danced the Galaxypso a lot.

So, for those with a fetish for film titles in all caps, here we go:

THE ADVENTURES OF BUCKAROO BANZAI ACROSS THE 8TH DIMENSION
ANDROID
THE CRAZIES
FIRE MAIDENS FROM OUTER SPACE
KONGA
THE LAST MAN ON EARTH
SERENITY
STEAMBOY
THE TINGLER
TWELVE MONKEYS
