An optics specialist is sent to investigate the unusual readings the military is getting from his equipment.

A solid movie all around. Great action and a good world, but with enough fuzzy science and The A-Team-style jury-rigging to rivet it solidly to TV-movie quality.

7 gunmen, for approximately 2.5 reasons, fight on behalf of a town they don't actually care about.

Fair. I mean.. it's just fair. Why bother with a remake if it's not going to even attempt to be better? It's a knockoff of the 1960 version set in California United States. Recommended for fans of westerns, but only so you can say that you saw it..

An endearing and distracting movie. Recommended, even though the dubbing is exaggerated and loud.

An alternate energy generator is invented, and a test pilot goes through as a fail-safe.

It might have been good, but the perspective was awful and it amplified already-poor writing. The secondary perspective of hopping around in time was aggravating.

Tells the story surrounding the mythology and history of Redbad, King of the Frisians.

It tries, but it's just not very good. It's full of heavy-handed moralizing.

A police officer almost dies in the course of duty, but is converted into a cyborg.

When it came out I was given the impression that it would be bad, especially compared to the original, but it was fair. Not good, but fair.

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.
