From a future destroyed by plague, a prisoner "volunteers" to be sent back in time to fetch pre-infection samples.

A great movie that stands apart both from its contemporaries and even from movies of today. It touches upon a lot of topics I find interesting in movies.

The world learns that an old artifact is alien in origin, and set out to Venus to meet its creators.

Not terrible, but not my thing. I'm not a fan of old B-movies, and it being so old makes it impossible for me to judge it properly. I can summarize with: It has classic stiff acting and awkward writing.

Trailer

People kill themselves because they're stupid, because hand-waving science and shit.

Firstly, this is not a romance. Lastly, it's shit. Terrible writing for a terrible world with terrible characters.

An evil scientist works to realize his vision, but his previous superhero creations are assembled to go against him.

Russia's answer to Marvel, I guess. High-budget and shockingly-poorly executed. Odd and badly-written, it's not bad enough to be fun and funny. I recommend this movie for people who are tired of all the superhero movies.. it is like a vegetable cleanse.

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.

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.

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.

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.
