Wonderstruck - (2017 movie) poster

Something about a boy in the 70s wandering around and a girl from earlier who also wandered around because reasons and things happen but they're not exciting so just give this a miss.

I don't know what the fuck these people were thinking, but this is beyond confusing and awful.

A standard broken-family Disney movie, but with magical thinking.

God damn this is a low-effort piece of shit.

You are part of an elite squad who freeze time to move near cover and get shot in the head.

I guess they didn't play their own game, because there are obvious flaws. This would have been more fun if they got rid of the whole moving around like an RPG. Like the old X-COM ga-- oh wait, the old games are just better. Why was this game made?

  • Properly titled The Bureau: XCOM Declassified

The Koreans invade the United States, and you are a freedom fighter who hides behind invulnerable cover in an on-rails playable cutscene.

alt-F4 as soon as I was placed in a "home base" which forced me to RP-walk everywhere. Inexcusable.

A semi-roguelike tower defence-ish game.

Utterly impossible. Doesn't make a lick of sense. Unlimited waves of stuff, for some reason. Can't build enough, the resource limitations are obscene.

In a futuristic Germany, a mute guy has relationship troubles.

An interesting world, but generally terrible writing.

  • German is unnecessarily sprinkled throughout this movie.
  • Intended as a spiritual successor to Moon - (2009 movie), though I don't see how.

As a commentary on Edward Snowden or WikiLeaks or some such, a list, that somehow exists, is out in the clear and being hunted by various spies.

It would have made a huge difference had this not been portrayed as a flashback/debriefing. Because of this complete failure in storytelling, there was no sense of risk at all; an important part of a spy movie like this.
