The Tangle - (2019 movie) poster

Entertainment > Movies >

Humanity has been infected by nanobots controlled by an AI that ends violence, which, although about as horrifying as it sounds, many people want it and some even work for it.

Slow and halting, but with a good premise. It leans heavily into acting, which isn't at the level needed to make this shine. Still, it's not a turd.

This would have made for an excellent pilot episode.

A key survivor of a world destroyed by a plague is forced to save it. I think.

Our dude uses every resource for revenge against the Harkonnen who murdered his family and people.

It would be watchable, even good, if it didn't have odd gaps in it. It's as though there is another movie whose cloth this was cut. I'm betting there is a super duper extended length version, because I feel there are missing scenes.

Researchers of a small particle accelerator discover that a particle can be sent back in time, and they theorize that it can be used like a gun to kill people in the past and change the present.

While it's a good idea, it feels pretty low effort.

A father, faced with "equality", is mistreated by family court and resorts to cross-dressing to get closer to his children by his overworking ex.

A great movie, full of great voicework and second-hand embarrassment.

A coal miner survives an apocalypse, but his struggles are only beginning.

Patient and excellent. A solid movie that survives its times. Also good for the terminally woke, to rub in the fact that this content has been mainstream since forever.
