Something something Hungary something mole.

An incredibly slow and boring movie.

An infamous criminal hides from or fights bounty hunters for years, only to be declared the enemy of a galaxy-spanning crusade.

This comes after Riddick - (2013 movie), but isn't really a continuation as such. If you didn't like that movie, then obviously don't see this one. If you did, then this is a risky recommendation. It's definitely not the same in any way.

I didn't like it, but it's not awful or anything. Maybe the fact that I didn't take a lot of notes says something. Well maybe it says that Disgaea - Hour of Darkness - (2003 game) is more interesting to grind while watching.

College kids go on vacation out into the woods, and everything goes horribly wrong when misunderstandings spiral out of reason.

A great movie with a great tone. Really fun to watch, but, as with most of its peers, it's great for just the one watch.

Something about a powerful thing that was taken, and a conspiracy. I guess.

Terrible. Simply terrible. A bad setup to the universe, a whole lot of shit pulled out of thin air.. generally bad writing and a bad mood. Bad pacing. Everything about it is terrible. Do not watch.

A stupid and deaf guy does stupid things while being deaf.

This was listed as a thriller and isn't even remotely thrilling. It is slow and depressing throughout. I got well past an hour without being thrilled.

The Adventures of Tom Sawyer - (1876 book), by Mark Twain cover

Something something painting a fence something racism something story of a boy.

After reading The Secret Garden - (1911 book), by Frances Hodgson Burnett I was not about to suffer through another book with an accent conveyed in text.

The Ice Pirates - (1984 movie) poster

In the far future, the scarcity of water prompts pirates to steal ice, but they are swept up into a rebellion.

Swashbuckling-and-blasters, this movie is cheezy without being funny. I think it has some cult following merely because there wasn't much of interest back then, and this style of movie was popular for reasons outside of quality entertainment. This is like some sort of movie version of shitposting.

Absolutely not recommended, as it doesn't tick any boxes outside of nostalgia.

Some people wake up with no memories, alone on board a ship. Blah blah mysteries and stuff.

It gets the basics right, but it ends up being shit in all the important places. The writing and tone of the show is terrible. I couldn't get past two episodes before being disgusted. A show ought to hook me in the pilot, but this didn't have one.. and it shows.

A man is kidnapped and held for reasons he's never told, only to be let out to be confused alongside this movie's viewers.

I want to like this, I really do, but it makes no damned sense.
