A mild mannered professor is thought to be older than he appears.

It's a little off in places, but has a nice consistent tone. Recommended only if you loved it's earlier movie, The Man from Earth - (2007 movie).

A boy is abused, gets hit on the head, is institutionalized and has a daydream.

Raises the bar for acting with this character. A good movie, but definitely not traditional. Riveting without a particularly obvious thread.

After watching this movie I just realized I didn't see the earlier one. Whoops.

A movie the likes of which I've never seen and doubt I ever will again.

After meeting people trying to make it big in Hollywood movies, a criminal weans himself off of his old life to try it for himself.

Maybe it's because I saw it "back in the day", but even after re-watching it I still really like it.

After a disaster, a pleasure theme park re-opens with a new population of robots.

Although this one has held up well, it does show its age. It's still spectacularly well-made, and especially well-written.

The Earth is ruined when aliens invade, and a maintenance skeleton crew monitors killer drones to protect resource-gathering efforts for survivors.

A fantastic movie from every angle. A very strong mood throughout. Highly recommended.
