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).

In a world where video game characters are alive, a lonely bad guy tries to earn appreciation but ends up threatens ruin.

A fun movie, most appropriate for the nostalgia fans of various old arcade games. It goes very very old, like Pixels - (2015 movie), which puts it in a particularly odd space. I think this one ends up being childish and unique enough that its various reference aren't in the way of an actual proper movie.

The misbehaving millionaire son of a lost father learns that his disappearance was in a digital world he authored but was trapped in after a coup from its inhabitants.

The uncanny valley of the main baddy / young version of the main character is terrible. What would have been amazing is if the effect were really really improved for the "true" version of the character, but kept uncanny for his copy, Clu.

However, the soundtrack, hell the audio, and the sheer scale of the movie is astonishing. I know others don't find this movie appealing, but I love it so damned much. I love it beyond the nostalgia of the original, but as an entirely separate movie.

Oh so very highly recommended.

A twelve year old kid is kidnapped by an alien research drone, who experiments on him by stuffing him full of knowledge, and although his brain ends up "leaking", he is the drone's only chance to get back home after hitting some power lines and getting shocked.

Though there aren't many kid-friendly science fiction movies out there, this is easily the best among them. Even ignoring its "present day" time, it's beginning to show its age. The fact that its "present day" is 1986 will inevitably be its biggest hurdle to accessibility to today's young. This movie is definitely worth a remake every fifteen years or less.

A child with an allergy to peanuts hallucinates an indian statue as Tonto telling him a story with the Lone Ranger.

Johnny Depp has started taking terrible cornball roles, and this movie is a steaming pile of shit. His native-American character feels cringeworthingly blackface-esque. I can see how the occasional comedic bit can make a movie fun, but the entire spirit of this movie feels just a touch too serious for there to be the right comedy-adventure feeling like that in Pirates of the Caribbean - The Curse of the Black Pearl - (2003 movie).

Random people go on a merry adventure looking for Luke.

DO NOT WATCH Not just because it takes a steaming dump overtop of the already steaming dumpyness of the prequils, but because it's badly written and unresolved. Go and watch The Matrix 2 instead. That piece of shit somehow has less issues.
