An undergrad invents a brain-meddling machine, and discovers that meddling with his brain is a bad idea.

Calm, and focused wholly on the main character. I liked it.

Military men conspire to steal chemical weapons to threaten Seattle for money as reparations for fallen comrades, and a man is let out of confinement to help an expert disarm them.

Although the main chemical weapons premise makes no sense, it's still a good movie.

A detective learns his daughter wasn't killed but was instead kidnapped, and while pursuing a lead he discovers mysterious circumstances.

An adequate but ultimately unsatisfying movie; bubblegum.

For people who don't like this movie and bail early: This was made in a time when you can't pause or leave. It's meant to be "bad" to an uncomfortable degree before it begins to make its point(s).

A pig farmer gets stoned and hallucinates.

Gritty, scary, and gripping; a product of its time. Recommended both for real parenting and people who appreciate decent cinema. It's nowhere near the calibre of something like The Secret of NIMH - (1982 movie) or the like, but think gently in that direction.

A satellite brings back a deadly pathogen which scientists desperately try to figure out a cure for.

It's got that oldie feeling, but with enough of a timeless element to make it really riveting.

The found footage of the travel to, and exploration of, one of the moons of Jupiter in the search for extraterrestrial life.

It's slow and focused, with a consistent and weighty tone. If you like it within the first fifteen minutes, you'll like the rest of it.

Alien refugees come to Earth, only to become squatters and criminals while the world looks on. After 20 years, the local government tries to relocate them to better facilities only to discover alien technologies they had been salvaging and repairing.

A unique setting and good story. It's not a super-fantastic movie, but it's definitely highly recommended. It has a high "ick" factor.
