A woman witnesses and participates in things she becomes a person of interest for.

Although not immediately spectacular, it seems good enough.

likely no notes will be taken

Kung Fury travels through time to fight the forces of Kung Führer.

A man wakes, reconstructed as a cyborg, and finds himself hunted by unknown forces.

A fucking astonishingly great movie! Fast, bloody and fun. It's effortlessly hilarious, and without being a comedy.

I was initially rather annoyed at the found footage-style shaky camera, but it got so intuitive so fast that it really helped me get into the character and movie. If you like bloody non-stop action movies, definitely give this movie a chance.

The misbehaving millionaire son of a lost father learns that his disappearance was in a digital world he authored but was trapped in after a coup from its inhabitants.

The uncanny valley of the main baddy / young version of the main character is terrible. What would have been amazing is if the effect were really really improved for the "true" version of the character, but kept uncanny for his copy, Clu.

However, the soundtrack, hell the audio, and the sheer scale of the movie is astonishing. I know others don't find this movie appealing, but I love it so damned much. I love it beyond the nostalgia of the original, but as an entirely separate movie.

Oh so very highly recommended.

A drug reveals an alien world.

It has undertones which could make it very disturbing, however it is half-tainted by and half-infused with comedy. With a unique universe and being extremely watchable, this is definitely memorable and enjoyable.

I've heard it described as Evil Dead II - (1987 movie) meets Naked Lunch - (1991 movie). I think it also has a bit of the spirit of They Live - (1988 movie). If you know and liked those films, you'll like this one.

A must-watch.

A group of friends visits a cabin in the woods, where research on The Necronomicon was recently done and has possessed the area.

I hate hate hate horror movies, but this kindof isn't one. This is absolutely mandatory viewing.
