Defiance - (2013 TV show) image

In a world ruined by an alien invasion and terraforming, an ex-military turned scavenger and his alien adopted daughter take refuge in one of the few reasonable settlements: Defiance.

Although it has elements I like, it doesn't have anything that actually grabs me. In a world where there is so much else of better quality, this is not recommended.

Robot Carnival - (1987 movie) image

A series of unrelated voiceless-shorts, sort of sometimes stitched together with the theme of robots.

Fairly terrible. It comes across as a set of student efforts. I wouldn't have been impressed even then.

Lost in space, a member of a misfit band of space-mercenaries is found by his father.

Another boring semi-superhero movie. I expect this will be mildly entertaining for people who really liked the earlier one.

In an odd way, see also Dark City - (1998 movie) and Watchmen - (2009 movie).

A writer visiting contemporary Paris is repeatedly transported to 1920s Paris.

This has been described as a romantic comedy, but there is neither romance nor comedy to be found. It's dry and drags its feet.

A space simulator fps thingy.

While it looked quite good at a glance, when actually trying it it fell flat. When a game cannot lean on cutting-edge technology, it has to have solid gameplay. It didn't feel good at all to me. I guess No Man's Sky spoiled me.

A criminal syndicate works toward panic to implement legal changes.

It was slow, awkward and amateur.. and I watched the first part and stopped watching after just 20 minutes.

The Romulans have an internal power struggle, and The Enterprise is brought in for diplomacy by one of their factions, which has a member particularly interested in their captain.

Generally trashy and obvious, with multiple issues throughout. Not worth watching. Definitely avoid if not already a fan of the television show, as this is an absolute mess without a moderate understanding of its lore.

A boy turned into a horrifying soldier becomes a totally likable guy.

I believe I watched this movie already, but perhaps it faded from memory due to its mediocrity. I couldn't watch very far in before being entirely turned off at the concept of the main character.
