There is a blackout and shit goes sideways.

It's not bad, but I can see why people would give this 5/10. It's a fair movie. It's not compelling in the least, with characters I never really felt attached to. Maybe following multiple people worsens it.. cutting between them is jarring for me.

A cool dude with a cool car beats people up and drives a lot.

An adequate film for people who like films with cars, violence, violence to cars and cars used for violence. Otherwise this is an unexciting movie.

A tower defence game with space ships.

I didn't play a whole lot of this, because the novelty wore off with the first one. However, it looks like this is more of the same: Highly customizable and extremely fun, but with poor replayability. Worth a bit of coin if you're a fan of tower defence games.

I was able to utterly blow away the first two practice missions. It does look like it gets a lot harder. I think maybe this isn't really for me right now or perhaps isn't my thing any more. I think I would like this game a moderate amount if I spent more time with it.

Playing a few hours in, the UI is really annoying. That alone makes this game extraordinarily hard. I hate having to fight the game itself to figure all my shit out. I'm giving this a pass.

Like its predecessor, bonus points for the author throwing away all sense of storyline. Fuck all that shit, I just want gameplay. I'm not joking.

James Bond, aka 007, runs and drives around, things happen, explosions and shootouts.

Meh, decent but not great unless you're a fan of the Bond universe. Not much of a "spy movie". Worth a one-time watch though, even though it's predictable as all fucking hell.

A roguelike game with a tactical side to it.

I like it, but only played a little of it as this sort of game doesn't seem to grab me any more. Definitely recommended for fans of this style of game. Don't be put off by its graphics. Like a good book, the pictures are in your head.

A tower defence game with space ships.

Highly customizable and extremely fun, but with poor replayability. Worth a bit of coin if you're a fan of tower defence games.

I didn't take notes from back then. All I have are some saved fleets. Some of the game gets extremely hard, especially with technology restrictions. I fucking hate having those restrictions. This was a big downer to playing all the way through.

Bonus points for the author throwing away all sense of storyline. Fuck all that shit, I just want gameplay. I'm not joking.

I never tried its expansion Parasites.
