An infamous criminal hides from or fights bounty hunters for years, only to be declared the enemy of a galaxy-spanning crusade.

This comes after Riddick - (2013 movie), but isn't really a continuation as such. If you didn't like that movie, then obviously don't see this one. If you did, then this is a risky recommendation. It's definitely not the same in any way.

I didn't like it, but it's not awful or anything. Maybe the fact that I didn't take a lot of notes says something. Well maybe it says that Disgaea - Hour of Darkness - (2003 game) is more interesting to grind while watching.

An evil scientist works to realize his vision, but his previous superhero creations are assembled to go against him.

Russia's answer to Marvel, I guess. High-budget and shockingly-poorly executed. Odd and badly-written, it's not bad enough to be fun and funny. I recommend this movie for people who are tired of all the superhero movies.. it is like a vegetable cleanse.

A pretty princess turned-warrior leaves paradise to hunt the god of war during World War II.

It's got a slow pace, good mood and is not your usual superhero flick. The pretty girl really makes this movie, even making up for the ugly male lead.

Lost in space, a member of a misfit band of space-mercenaries is found by his father.

Another boring semi-superhero movie. I expect this will be mildly entertaining for people who really liked the earlier one.

In an odd way, see also Dark City - (1998 movie) and Watchmen - (2009 movie).

A day-walking vampire halts his crusade against them, forming a truce to hunt an even worse monster.

An adequate movie, with an acceptable amount of over-the-top nonsense. Definitely worth watching for fans of the original. Easily stands the test of time.

  • Properly titled Blade II

Born as the survivor of a bitten-pregnancy, a part-vampire "day walker" continues his crusade amidst one of their ranks' power play for leadership.

A classic movie, before the whole superhero genre got entirely out of hand. It's an unfortunate rewriting of the original comic book, but it does well with what it has. It's blunt and stiff, yet entertaining.

It has only a couple of moments of technology which feel old, otherwise it has held up well.

A distracted surgeon crashes his car and is left with ruined hands, but he's brought into a magic order who defend the planet and universe and stuff.

A decent movie, although fluffy and of narrow scope.

Two friends go on vacation, with one of them seriously ill and possibly dying, but a new illness progresses.

How do I describe this without spoiling it? I know a lot of people don't like found-footage movies, but this one is quite good as it actually shows everything.

Some bad mutants superhumans are assembled to fight others.

Basically forgettable except for Harley. Has bunches of characters nobody has heard of or cares about.

trailer

To judge the Earth, aliens grant a single man the power of wishing, but he's an everyday guy and has no idea how to handle it.

A moderately good movie, with solid comedy throughout it. I only really care about it because of its subject matter and the way it handles it. Strangely, he grants himself wisdom early on but never clues into using it to give him proper understanding of it and how to use it. That's the major theme of the movie, and the source of its comedy.
