Stuff and a guy does things and there's a guy who likes riddles for some reason.

Nothing is explained. This is about as interesting as it's color scheme.

A missing father leaves clues that lead to a mysterious building that leads to other worlds.

While it doesn't feel slow, it ultimately doesn't get far enough to come across as anything other than a pilot episode for a TV series. Not recommended, but it's good enough that for people who are vaguely interested in the science fiction of it, it might be worth watching on a second screen.

Some idiots go grave robbing to protect a thing, leading bad guys there to steal the thing, then a worse guy shows up, then assholes some fight instead of talk, and there is some dialog throughout and with all the action and dead men, no women are even hurt; equality!

Meh. Big fucking meh with a weak script, acting, story.. everything is just weak.

A ruined future world has a mercenary hired to smuggle and protect a person of interest. I guess.

It's merely okay because it suddenly pivots into some fantasy nonsense. If it immediately established things, or if it eased into it, then it would have been far better. It's perfectly watchable, but not particularly recommended.

A man's fiancé is kidnapped, and he and his friend move to rescue her from what turns out to be ancient Chinese mystical forces.

A phenomenal movie. Fun and interesting. The acting is great, the story is great, the setting is great. I easily consider this mandatory viewing, and I think it holds up even after all these years.

In a global event, a failed hobby singer-songwriter is shifted into another universe where The Beatles are unknown, and he steps into their role.

Messy and awkward in places, and definitely not written as a proper romance. Vaguely-recommended for people who want to see one perspective on the alternate reality theme.

A Christmas-hating sociopath works to sabotage it as vengeance against the town that fears him.
