I'll try to participate this year. I watched almost nothing in 2021. I gotta pick up the slack.

I just rewatched Black Mountain Side from 2014, and it's better than I remembered. I was turned off quite a bit with the ending, but I liked it a lot better this time. From a B- to an A for me.

They don't make posters like they used to. Tsk tsk tsk. Without these, I might never have gotten into 50's schlock the way I did. I'll be watching Midnight Sun for sure. I love the winter ones.

The Birds is one of the most B-movie highly regarded movies I've seen. I'm pretty sure I liked it, but I wouldn't call it great.

Not top shelf 50's sci-fi, but upper shelves at least. Stuff happens, relatively original monster, takes place in space, etc. One I'd recommend, at least based on what I remember of it.

Beast From Haunted Cave, 1959 (B+)

From the movies Thief mentionned, you might want to watch Colossus: The Forbin Project. Absolute top shelf sci-fi. I don't think I've seen anything else. I'd have to double check with my watchlist.
