You will notice that most of the movies mentioned so far are technically HORROR movies. Many were also produced by THE ASYLUM. But in case that means nothing to to you. .
MINOTAUR, which was ostensibly a re-telling of the Greek legend, was really just a lame horror movie ala THE CAVE or DESCENT. If you know nothing about Greek mythology you may like it. If you do steer clear as it's an mythotrocity.
ALIEN SIEGE. Utterly forgettable. NO, seriously, I don't remember anything about this.
SHOWDOWN AT AREA 51 - My review subject line says it all: Sciffy's Showdown at Area 51 a letdown!
THE FALLEN ONES. Bit derivative.
BASILISK. I may vaguely recollect this. Like most sciffy, oops, syphylys channel movies the CGI ruined it.
SKELETON MAN - If this is the one I think it was slightly boring but not so bad that I didn't buy the DVD when I found it in a bargain bin for ultra cheap. Still in the cellophane though.A few not mentioned so far, some of which I've reviewed (links included). . .
S.S. DOOMTROOPER - A lot of people liked this one. I didn't care for the syphylytic CGI.TIN MAN
- Mini-series. Be warned: My remarks were more rant than review.
KNIGHTS OF BLOODSTEEL - Mini-series event. Sucked so hard I stopped recording after about 14 or so minutes as I wasn't about to waste a DVDr on this garbage. Just dreadful. Starred the guy from JAG and I was actually feeling sorry for him.
CYCLOPS - See above. Change minutes to seconds. Didn't watch enough of this to find out what known actors, if any, got conned into starring in this tripe.
MONSTER ARK - Watched a few minuts of it, only because Amanda Tapping (IIRC) was in this. It's actually a attempt to do Biblical horor. The premise, for me, was an epic fail.FIRE & ICE
- Recommended with reservations.
100 MILLION BC - Produced by THE ASYLUM. Pretty much a low rent version of A SOUND OF THUNDER
(which was a sciffy PREMIERE once) though it's really more of a rip-off of BBC's TV show PRIMEVAL with hints of STARGATE/SLIDERS.HERCULES: HALF MAN. HALF GOD. ALL POWER.
- Technically not a syphylys orignal. But this mini-series aired on all the NBC Universal entities, including sciffy.Star Runners
- Recommended.BATTLE PLANET
- Marginally Recommend. (see review)
Note the links are probably broken so here's where to view the info on WARLORD BATTLE FOR THE GALAXYGRENDEL (2007)
- Marginally Recommend for b-movie lovers. (see review)HARPIES
- SUCKED A DEMON CORPSE'S PUSS LEAKING SPHINCTER. This rated a second blog entry: More info on Sci-Fi's heinous Harpies
.THE LAST SENTINEL
- This is a review of the original broadcast. I've been meaning to update this as I've since gotten it on DVD (in a 4 movie sci-fi pack from Walmart for $5), which I would recommend.ODYSSEUS - VOYAGE TO THE UNDERWORLD
- From the review: "Beware, TV viewer, the SCI FI 'original' movie! BEWARE! " :)
Note - That's what Yahoo did to my Mise-en-scene Crypt blog. It's accessible, when not returning an error, but if you have problems click here

And, finally, my remarks about Why is Sci-Fi Channel's Flash Gordon not liked?

I really hope those links are of use to someone as it was a pain to find them.
