Dracula Untold - (2014 movie) poster

Entertainment > Movies >

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0829150/

A boy turned into a horrifying soldier becomes a totally likable guy.

I believe I watched this movie already, but perhaps it faded from memory due to its mediocrity. I couldn't watch very far in before being entirely turned off at the concept of the main character.

The Matrix Revolutions - (2003 movie) poster

With killer-machines digging down to bypass the defences of the last refuge of mankind, a man with sudden magic powers magics with his powers.

Oh god, make it end. The writing is so fucking sloppy that the second movie and this third movie should not be watched by anyone, most especially fans of the first movie.

  2. The Matrix Reloaded - (2003 movie)

Just like this poster, this movie has no brains.

The war against The Machines escalates, and it's a race between them digging down to Zion and The One pushing his way into the core of The Matrix for reason that wasn't explained very well.

If there are people out there who saw the first one and somehow get to this post before seeing this movie, please avoid this. Yes it's more of the same and it's "good", but this is a shit story that should be skipped.

This movie does not have an ending. It is part one of a mandatory two-movie binge.

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2319739/

A student is approached by his future-self, and is sent into a time loop when he ignores his own advice.

Quite a good movie. With a great pace and a particularly good sound track, I found this quite emotional.

Real Genius - (1985 movie) poster

A boy-genius is brought into an elite university to work on a laser project with a genius-misfit, but after its spectacular success they learn of its nefarious purpose.

While old, it holds up perfectly. A great movie, with a bunch of laugh-out-loud moments. Unlike the "frat boy" movies which are all about booze and boobs, this one shows genius with its hacker spirit.

G.I. Joe - The Rise of Cobra - (2009 movie) poster

Entertainment > Movies >

(on Wikipedia)
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1046173/

Newly-developed military nano-technology is stolen by terrorists in a plot to take over the world, and only a super-elite team chosen from the international best can stop them.

This movie is another example of both an astonishingly wide gap between its original audience and current audience, and a needless unimagination in original movie universe-building authorship.

  • Properly titled G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra
  • Based on the G.I. Joe toy / cartoon franchise.
  • In association with Hasbro.

It is discovered that a person and their voice can be paired with certain words to manifest effects in the real world.

Tiring. Slow, confusing, and after 12 minutes it gets into a bit of a plot. The world has not been particularly well-explained.. giving this too little substance to hold my attention.

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.

A girl learns she has magic powers and stuff when a bad guy and his henchmen who all like demons hunt her down for a thing she has.

A superhero-girl-witch movie. Adorable and stuff. Recommended for girls who are fans of this adorable trope genre.

Agents with a formerly-secret worldwide law-enforcement organization work to safeguard the world from the lesser challenges now too-frequent for superheroes alone.

Good enough, although so far it's one of these episodic shows which has a new problem every episode.
