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.

I watched three episodes and liked it, but I took a long break and watched a fourth and couldn't figure anything out or get interested again. I can't recommend this except for those who are heavily hooked on those first few episodes and who intend to properly binge-watch it all.

A distracted surgeon crashes his car and is left with ruined hands, but he's brought into a magic order who defend the planet and universe and stuff.

A decent movie, although fluffy and of narrow scope.

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.

A man travels back in time to save the husband of the woman he grew up idolizing.

Not a terrible movie, but it really breaks down into a confusing mess past the half-way mark. It does make up for things near the end though, which is a good recovery. So for a direct-to-video movie, it does pretty good for itself.

Some bad mutants superhumans are assembled to fight others.

Basically forgettable except for Harley. Has bunches of characters nobody has heard of or cares about.

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.
