A psychologically-disturbed young man's fantasies spiral out of control as he pursues a lunatic's dream for economic anarchy.

Fast and loose. This is one of those shows which tries to cash in on this generation's theme of general discontent. It generally fails. More-or-less entertaining.

For everyday people this is somewhat recommended. For fans of psychological stuff, and anti-corporatism, this is somewhat recommended. For people who know enough about computers but don't like psychological stuff or anti-corporatism, I do not recommend this.

A disturbed child convinces a complete stranger that she's his mother, embroiling her in a town-wide fantasy with his sociopathic mother as an adversary.

I guess this would be entertaining for little girls. This didn't grab me in the first few episodes. It needs more explosions, or maybe a male role model.

A time capsule shot into space back in 1982 is received as a declaration of war by aliens, who respond with multiple waves of 1980s video games-made-real, which only lifetime-loser video game nerds can face.

Uh. From the ground up, this movie cannot work. It's a kids movie which relies upon the nostalgia only a handful of middle-aged men might have but hopefully won't.

Navy Seals vs. Zombies (2015) poster

Baton Rouge, Louisiana is ground zero for a zombification-virus.

While not great, it could have done a whole lot worse. Navy Seals vs. Zombies is probably worth a watch for zombie and military fans, if there's nothing better around.

I didn't get through it. It had nothing interesting to offer me.

A great MMORPG with spectacular mechanics but no endgame.

I had a lot of fun with it way back when, but my most recent visit had me wandering around in circles for an inexcusable length of time. An utter failure. Still highly recommended.

Naked Lunch (1991) poster

A struggling writer takes drugs, giving him incredible results with unforeseen consequences.

This is an uncomfortably-great movie. It's semi-horror in the sense of a tactile empathy the viewer has. I don't know that I'd consider this mandatory viewing, because it would strongly depend on the viewer. I don't think this would be a "love it or hate it" movie, because it's .. just odd. It's original, and that alone would make it mandatory viewing for some.

The Evil Dead (1981) poster

A group of friends visits a cabin in the woods, where research on The Necronomicon was recently done and has possessed the area.

I hate hate hate horror movies, but this kindof isn't one. This is absolutely mandatory viewing.
