As part of a delaying tactic for an internal power struggle at the Central Intelligence Agency, an everyman is pointed out as a pawn to be followed as a delaying tactic.

A fantastic, classic, movie. It's simple and with a light tone. I don't think it's particularly recommendable now, but I still like it.

Two young losers somehow make a hot woman who has magical powers.

One of the fundamental parts of this movie involves some really terrifyingly-old technology. Even back then it was comical. If that can be excused, the rest of this holds up perfectly.

So with that out of the way, I can highly recommend this. I know my nostalgia must cloud my judgement, but I still think it would be a fun movie for a first-timer. It's bubblegum.

A cop's early investigation into a police fund theft has him killed, leaving his framed hostage-negotiator partner to use the only tool he has available to find the real killer.

A really great movie with a unique topic. Recommended.

An incredibly resilient fast-growing indoor/outdoor plant.

I've seen this, or some version of this, growing perennially outside in an area with normal seasons and in moderate shade. It really covered the area nicely, and nothing else was growing there. I don't think it was tended to at all, so it may also crowd out weeds or perhaps the area was being sprayed or weeded and I never saw it.

I've kept it in a basement with no real natural light around. It went dark and still thrived. It started growing itself into the wall, through paint.

An anti-robot cop investigates the death of the father of contemporary artificial intelligence-enabled robots.

A great movie through and through. Highly recommended and a welcome addition to my science fiction movie catalog.
