Singularity - (2017 movie) image

Entertainment > Movies >

(on Wikipedia)
production company page

Artificial intelligence is created, but they forgot to Send a philosopher, so things go to shit somehow there are survivors.

It borrows from various other things, but doesn't execute anything very well. It just comes off as being badly written. I should have guessed based on the production company's amateur-night page.

An oldschool music player.

Has potential, but is missing critical features and its development appears to have ceased. Only good for playing ASMA (Atar) .mus, .str, and .wds files.

Alien 3 (1992) image

Entertainment > Movies >

(on Wikipedia)

Survivors of an alien attack crash next to a prison and learn that the alien came with them.

This was my first movie with a shaved-headed woman. I guess I was all "oh no she di'int, now wesa gettin serioooos".

In my mind, the franchise was significantly weakened by this movie. It just didn't "feel right". Perhaps the previous two were so good that they became too tough to follow, but after yet another re-watch this movie really just doesn't seem all that good.

Andromedia - (1998 movie) image

Entertainment > Movies >

(on Wikipedia)

A girl is digitized, becoming a valuable commodity for people seeking power and immortality.

This might be interesting for fans of science fiction history, but it's dumb in too many places for me to enjoy it.

If you end up watching this, here are my edited Andromedia subtitles.

It really looks great.

VueScan supports the CanoScan LiDE 120, which I tested it with.

It watermarks what it scans, unless you buy it. It's not worth $50 for something decent, because my scanner cost that. $100 to get OCR cooked-in also isn't worth it.

Black Panther - (2018 movie) poster

Entertainment > Movies >

(on Wikipedia)

After the assassination of his father, a new king is crowned for an insular but extraordinary nation, but he does not go unchallenged.

I decided to watch this, breaching my "no more superhero movies" position, because there was some fascinating drama surrounding it.

Not recommended: I can't understand why anyone would think this is particularly good for any particular reason. Aside from being all manner of racist, it does not provide any intellectual cud to chew on.

Logan - (2017 movie) image

Entertainment > Movies >

(on Wikipedia)

Logan (Wolverine) gets tangled up with a girl fleeing a mutant research and breeding lab that is definitely nothing like that of Dark Angel - (2000 show).

Not recommended.

This is like a DC version of X-Men. It was passable at best, and a good way to put the whole series and concept of comic book movies to bed. I think I'll end them all on this low note.
