When his missing daughter turns up with a mark on her back, an ex-con fights to keep them both safe.

Dirty, dangerous and to-the-point. As always, Mel Gibson plays this stereotypical role of his quite well. If you like him in his other gritty movies, you'll like this one.

An assassin tries to leave the life, and though she gets tracked down she survives and takes to a life of revenge.

Incredibly drawn out. I've seen it some time ago, but even attempting to re-watch this makes me cringe. This gets grouped into the category of "I'd be able to pay attention if the lead character was better looking." .. and like those other films, that still wouldn't be enough to make this a good movie.

This is a shit movie that only did well because it was unique at the time.

  • This is the whole of volume 1 and volume 2 put together.

    • I understand there is a DVD release, and it'll be shown in theatres for some reason. I also found a fan edit.
  • Properly titled Kill Bill: The Whole Bloody Affair
  • There will probably be a sequel.

An archaeologist seeks an ancient Egyptian amulet to gain godlike powers.

A great fan film. I wish I had a better source than the 240p on YouTube, but I didn't actually look around at all.

An agent's god-daughter is kidnapped under political circumstances, and complexities necessitate him forming his own team to rescue her.

Quite a good movie. Excellent pacing and music.

A brainwashed CIA assassin who tried to retire-hide in India with his commonlaw-wife gets pulled into a mystery and stuff when she is killed in an attempt to frame him.

More of the same. Forgettable. It's not worth continuing this series.

A man is fished from the sea and has no memory. He is on the run, but he can use a gun, and a little martial arts like Bruce Lee.

Long and drawn out, with a plot that doesn't even remotely begin to make any sense whatsoever until the movie is basically over.

Brings nothing to the table. I think this was successful not because it's any good but because it was shown during a drought of movies in this genre-ballpark.

A Swedish intelligence agent tracks a missing shipment of arms, uncovering a link to a mercenary organization.

Exceptional. This is not Jame Bond-style, but is a proper adult movie.

Having fallen from grace, two friends are reunited in their pursuit of ghosts, eventually forming a band of four who fight them. And stuff.

This is neither a sequel to the actual Ghostbusters (1984), nor is it anything in its style or quality. It's just a theft of the franchise. It shits all over it. Ignoring all of that, it's still an awful movie on its own.

This is not a comedy! Don't mistake it for one! The only funny scene had nothing to do with the main characters.

Leftovers from a previous movie come back to haunt The Avengers, who tear themselves apart because they lack conflict resolution skills.

Another superzero movie. Only good if you're not just into this genre, but into this series. Other movies set in this universe must be watched to appreciate some of this one.

  • Properly titled Captain America: Civil War

A plague hits New York and then the world, and New York operatives are activated to do stuff and things.

Not bad for a short-ish film. There are some characters who do stuff, and there is some plot-like activity. Recommended for fans of what I call the "ruined world" genre.
