Spawn - (1997 movie) poster

A veteran mercenary is double-crossed and finds himself blacklisted into becoming a general in hell's army.

This is a very high low-budget movie. It's over-the-top, corny but only almost-fun. Some of the effects are amazing, but some are so damned bad I can't imagine how they thought this could be anything more than a middling success. From a writing perspective, it's not bad moment-to-moment, but the overall plot is a bit stupid.

This has nothing going for it but the incredible acting of a clown.

A handful of Nazi scientists have toiled in secret to find and use a ring kept by some Americans in Egypt which they believe leads to an advanced civilization.

A rehash of other ideas done in a somewhat more amateur way, with a cheap ending as a prequel to either the original movie or series. Interesting to watch if you're a fan of the franchise but absolutely skippable if you're not.

A high school girl's reality breaks down.

A fucking awful mess of a storyline that teases just enough sense to stay mostly interesting.

Accident Man - (2018 movie) poster

A boy that's beaten up a lot decides that murder is both the best revenge and career. Wait, it's about the man though. Well there's narration so don't worry he's never in any danger.

Kinda funny and kinda interesting sometimes, but god damn does it drag on; it could have been done much better, and done better quite easily too.

Kung Fury travels through time to fight the forces of Kung Führer.

A fantastic action-comedy, most especially for people who grew up in the 1980s.

Bad Guys want to blow up a shithole to make money in rebuilding.

It's okay I guess, but the writing is off and it's frequently a tired revisitation of the earlier movie.

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 rich computer program pulls a race car driver into the future so he can date his ex girlfriend.

It's so damned 90s but I like it a lot.

A drug reveals an alien world.

It has undertones which could make it very disturbing, however it is half-tainted by and half-infused with comedy. With a unique universe and being extremely watchable, this is definitely memorable and enjoyable.

I've heard it described as Evil Dead II - (1987 movie) meets Naked Lunch - (1991 movie). I think it also has a bit of the spirit of They Live - (1988 movie). If you know and liked those films, you'll like this one.

A must-watch.

New technology allows a vehicle to pass through solid matter, but something else is brought through.

This is a must-watch movie, not for its story and plot as-such, but for its feel. It has ideas which really stick. I think Buckaroo Banzai might be particularly cool for young boys.
