Dragonborn-twins have drama.

If you like the others in the Dragonheart series, then I suppose this is worth a watch.

Yet another buddy cop movie, but this time instead of <random race> it is an Orc, and instead of </random><random drugs> it's magic.

An adequate movie.

A centuries-old man is embroiled in a sword-fight between other immortals.

This is one of those movies which forged my young self, but I cannot recommend to others. It definitely feels dated, and I doubt its ideas would be particularly shaping to others compared to the other movies created since this one.

An evil sorcerer queen hunts a baby who's prophesied to kill her, but the baby is being spirited away by a pair of unlikely heroes: A scoundrel and a gnome.

Fun as hell. Mandatory viewing.

TODO - To watch with commentary and all the bonus material.

It should be summarized as: A noble kingdom is taken by force, forcing a prince to flee and live a life that turns to adventure, to later return to contest for the throne.

However. However it's all over the place. It doesn't properly delve into any aspect, and doesn't properly string things together. It has all the elements of a good, or at least fair, movie, but it wasn't written well.

Avoid, especially if you like the Harry Potter series!

A British wizard travels to New York City, but his case full of endangered magical creatures causes trouble in a city that already has its own creature problem.

Weak characters, a shit plot with lots of filler and generally unlikeable. Especially bad in light of the earlier movies set in this universe. God that main character is fucking terrible to watch.

I will forever misremember this title as Fantastic Breasts and Where to Find Them. No fantastic breasts were found in this movie.

It is discovered that a person and their voice can be paired with certain words to manifest effects in the real world.

Tiring. Slow, confusing, and after 12 minutes it gets into a bit of a plot. The world has not been particularly well-explained.. giving this too little substance to hold my attention.

A girl learns she has magic powers and stuff when a bad guy and his henchmen who all like demons hunt her down for a thing she has.

A superhero-girl-witch movie. Adorable and stuff. Recommended for girls who are fans of this adorable trope genre.

An assassination attempt on a senator gets her two superpowered-bodyguards, one of whom has the hots for her and whose investigation leads to a mystery that has remained shrouded for ten years.

While nowhere near as good as I.I, this is an adequate watch and certainly head and shoulders above Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones.

Definitely do not watch this until you have episode III lined up. At present, I do not know if there is a phantom edit of that. So.. I don't know if I can recommend this. Right now it's flagged as disliked, but I don't feel that I wasted my time watching it. I just feel let down by the ending.

I must have watched some of this and stopped. I'll get back to this later.
