Two interns and a lovesick magazine reporter follow up on a crazy old classified ad requesting a partner for time travel.

It's not exactly a time-travel movie, science fiction, a comedy or a romance or a romantic comedy, but it does have a light dusting of everything. It's "okay".

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.

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.

Hitler is pulled into his future, and being able to do nothing but be himself, he is taken to be a comedian.

I know this is meant as a comedy, but.. it's just off. It's worth a watch, but just the one. It touches on quite a lot of .. well touchy subjects. Perhaps this movie will greatly improve in time, while things aren't so sensitive.

A spy does spy stuff, drinks, hits on women and makes a jackass of himself while being surprisingly competent.

A fun, light, series which has a whole lot of laugh-out-loud moments.

  • Though I've seen it all, I didn't begin taking notes until later on.

The apocalypse happens, and a bunch of average celebrities try to survive.

Moderately terrible. Worth a watch if you like these particular actors and their previous works.

trailer

To judge the Earth, aliens grant a single man the power of wishing, but he's an everyday guy and has no idea how to handle it.

A moderately good movie, with solid comedy throughout it. I only really care about it because of its subject matter and the way it handles it. Strangely, he grants himself wisdom early on but never clues into using it to give him proper understanding of it and how to use it. That's the major theme of the movie, and the source of its comedy.
