The Tangle - (2019 movie) poster

Entertainment > Movies >

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt5080046/

Humanity has been infected by nanobots controlled by an AI that ends violence, which, although about as horrifying as it sounds, many people want it and some even work for it.

This would have made for an excellent pilot episode.

A key survivor of a world destroyed by a plague is forced to save it. I think.

It's generally slow and boring; luke warm at best, but recommended if you're into this sort of thing.

Mysterious gates bring monsters into the world, but people develop superpowers and one previously-worthless combatant becomes incredible.

Pretty good so far.

  • Original title: Ore dake Level Up na Ken
  • The origin is Korean, but this is a Japanese endeavour.

The remnants of humanity work to survive in a ruined world.

Gritty and good. It's got a lot of bullshit in it though, so you really have to turn your brain off.

I had someone point out this was supposed to have comedy, but it's so thin I had no idea.

Following agents of a supercomputer.

It's incredibly dark, and I don't mean it's all moody and shit; it's so damned dim it's hard to make most things out.

A mysterious message is detected by an astronaut, who learns its senders are on their way to Earth.

Fair, and moody, but it feels like there should be more content.
