A workaholic can't deal with being entitled and bored.

Really REALLY boring. I could have written it so much better that it's depressing to have watched.

A machine goes back in time to save it's reprogrammer from another machine that was created thanks to another instance of that first machine having been sent back in time to kill that reprogrammer's mother which created the timeline that made the machines in the first place. Or something.

A great movie, although I'm not sure if it could be watched on it's own. Thankfully The Terminator - (1984 movie) is a must-watch.

A man works to develop an artificial intelligence for a secret military robot soldier project.

With a dark, calm tone, this movie brushes up against all the right topics. It encourages strong empathy for artificial intelligence in a way rarely seen elsewhere, and I find it deeply moving. Very highly recommended.

Bad Guys want to blow up a shithole to make money in rebuilding.

It's okay I guess, but the writing is off and it's frequently a tired revisitation of the earlier movie.

  • Properly titled District 13꞉ Ultimatum
  • Original title: Banlieue 13: Ultimatum

A hacker screws around with a game company's server, causing an artificial intelligence to stir up the military.

Both quaint and awesome. It doesn't hold up over time, so it does have to be understood in the context of it's era. Still recommended if you're old enough to do so.

A man wakes, reconstructed as a cyborg, and finds himself hunted by unknown forces.

A fucking astonishingly great movie! Fast, bloody and fun. It's effortlessly hilarious, and without being a comedy.

I was initially rather annoyed at the found footage-style shaky camera, but it got so intuitive so fast that it really helped me get into the character and movie. If you like bloody non-stop action movies, definitely give this movie a chance.
