A documentary about Robert Crumb.

A lineage of broken genetics is passed on to children, one of whom drew odd things oddly and got famous because normies couldn't or wouldn't do it. He got and stayed famous because he got there first. Everyone fawns over him to be cool.

There's a lot of anti-consumerism, anti-industry and general cultural critique. Unfortunately, the whole thing gets interesting only in the latter third, and the good cultural critique is scattered throughout that.

All things considered, this isn't a great movie, an interesting person or an interesting topic. For people unaware of the reality, this shows the broken side of certain kinds of artist.

Not recommended.

Trailer

People kill themselves because they're stupid, because hand-waving science and shit.

Firstly, this is not a romance. Lastly, it's shit. Terrible writing for a terrible world with terrible characters.

Something something narration and murder-mystery.

Great acting, but not a very good story or presentation.. I just didn't like it. I only saw this for Michelle Monaghan, and it was worth it.

An evil scientist works to realize his vision, but his previous superhero creations are assembled to go against him.

Russia's answer to Marvel, I guess. High-budget and shockingly-poorly executed. Odd and badly-written, it's not bad enough to be fun and funny. I recommend this movie for people who are tired of all the superhero movies.. it is like a vegetable cleanse.

    • The song in the trailer is a clip from Защитники by Юлия Терещенко (on YouTube)
  • previously titled "Zaschitniki"

  • early rumours of this movie mis-titled it "Defenders"

A murderer is saved from death only to be used in an experiment to explore his ancestry.

It's an awkward combination of slowness with action. I suspect it could have been quite good, as it has the elements for it.. but the writing is shit in enough significant places that it can't recover. It has an abysmal resolution, making the whole experience regrettable.

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. There are a couple of characters who are really well acted, but again.. it's not worth the trouble.

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.
