An optics specialist is sent to investigate the unusual readings the military is getting from his equipment.

A solid movie all around. Great action and a good world, but with enough fuzzy science and The A-Team-style jury-rigging to rivet it solidly to TV-movie quality.

A cop is saved from death but brought into a supernatural police department.

A fair movie. It has some fairly amusing moments but is overall an engaging bubblegum movie.

A small research vessel is knocked down by a meteor shower, triggering a panicked military response and causing hundreds of civilian casualties.

An endearing and distracting movie. Recommended, even though the dubbing is exaggerated and loud.

The story of [ 1 ] the seven samurai [ 2 ] the 47 ronin the 21 Sihks defending a fort.

A man struggles with a split personality disorder, turning to an unlikely group of young women for counseling. Haha, just kidding it's a kidnapping-horror movie.

A government assassin learns he has been cloned by a rogue lab bent on raising an army of perfect soldiers.

A fair movie. It brings nothing new or interesting, and has generally uninspired writing and action. Thinking back on it, it does seem derivative of so many other movies.

A police officer almost dies in the course of duty, but is converted into a cyborg.

When it came out I was given the impression that it would be bad, especially compared to the original, but it was fair. Not good, but fair.
