Following agents of a supercomputer.

It's incredibly dark, and I don't mean it's all moody and shit; it's so damned dim it's hard to make most things out.

Military men conspire to steal chemical weapons to threaten Seattle for money as reparations for fallen comrades, and a man is let out of confinement to help an expert disarm them.

Although the main chemical weapons premise makes no sense, it's still a good movie.

An everyday man's is kidnapped to make amends for past wrongs he couldn't guess at.

I can see it was trying, but boy is it inconsistent action without real underlying substance.

I happen to like it a lot.

Failed-scientists begin a ghost capturing service, and the need for their services grows, threatening all of New York city.

I don't have a lot of movies anything like this which I could consider listing as mandatory, so this one gets in pretty easily.

John Wick returns to alternately ruin and end his friends lives in the hopes of leveraging an obscure rule to free himself from .. whatever their assassins society is called.

It's adequate, but has nowhere near equality: I think one unimportant woman dies on-screen and then the body vanishes, another gets hurt, and this has to be the most brutally misandrist movie I've ever seen. Feminist approved!

A hacker learns reality is not as it appears.

A sci-fi ripoff of elements of Lucid dreaming, with elements taken from the Neuromancer/Shadowrun "cyberpunk" genres.

A pioneering movie for special effects, which have held up quite well, and its general pot and atmosphere. Technically not original for science fiction fans, but great nonetheless.

One of my favourites, although I really wish the actor playing Trinity (Carrie-Anne Moss) was good looking.

A man with particular skills find himself among honest townsfolk gripped by criminals.

Simple and reasonably entertaining. Recommended especially for the people who like gritty low-tech spy-superhero movies.

  • Trailer
  • Set in Italy, so there is some spoken Italian.
