A bad single mother raises a selfish daughter who, to get attention, almost commits second-hand genocide and grows into a woman who almost commits genocide again.

Quite watchable. I don't know why other people didn't like it. I didn't find any particular flaws.

The Tangle - (2019 movie) poster

Humanity has been infected by nanobots controlled by an AI that ends violence, which, although about as horrifying as it sounds, many people want it and some even work for it.

Slow and halting, but with a good premise. It leans heavily into acting, which isn't at the level needed to make this shine. Still, it's not a turd.

This would have made for an excellent pilot episode.

A robotics insurance investigator learns their parts are being stolen and swapped.

I've nothing to complain about; it's fair over all.

A slow and uninteresting ripoff of Seven Samurai - (1954 movie).

It's slow and uninteresting, and a ripoff of Seven Samurai - (1954 movie).

After a convicted murderer's execution, and when copycat killers become suicides, the original detective is dragged into what becomes a vastly more complex case.

Although I wouldn't recommend this broadly, it was so impactful that I could only sketch out a vague description from memory and had to wait for the inception of artificial intelligence to help me track it down.

This pokes fun of a lot of leftism: pandering, identifying, gays, transgenders.

Good fun.

Americans overreact to a misunderstanding and go on a genocidal warpath across the globe and are somehow winning except for a superweapon of peace.

It does its best, but it doesn't do enough world building, character building, or anything really. While it isn't a waste of time, I wouldn't recommend it.

A hacker learns reality is not as it appears.

A sci-fi ripoff of elements of Lucid dreaming, with elements taken from the Neuromancer/Shadowrun "cyberpunk" genres.

A pioneering movie for special effects, which have held up quite well, and its general pot and atmosphere. Technically not original for science fiction fans, but great nonetheless.

One of my favourites, although I really wish the actor playing Trinity (Carrie-Anne Moss) was good looking.

A series of non-cannon short animated films inspired by The Matrix - (1999 movie).

Better than the main series in some cases. I rather love every one of these short films.
