A quirky and grating writer finds himself pulled into the lives of ordinary people.

A really great, well-rounded, unique movie, especially for guys, as it has a single moment of clarity that will help them understand women.

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.

From a future destroyed by plague, a prisoner "volunteers" to be sent back in time to fetch pre-infection samples.

A great movie that stands apart both from its contemporaries and even from movies of today. It touches upon a lot of topics I find interesting in movies.

Two young losers somehow make a hot woman who has magical powers.

One of the fundamental parts of this movie involves some really terrifyingly-old technology. Even back then it was comical. If that can be excused, the rest of this holds up perfectly.

So with that out of the way, I can highly recommend this. I know my nostalgia must cloud my judgement, but I still think it would be a fun movie for a first-timer. It's bubblegum.

An incredibly resilient fast-growing indoor/outdoor plant.

I've seen this, or some version of this, growing perennially outside in an area with normal seasons and in moderate shade. It really covered the area nicely, and nothing else was growing there. I don't think it was tended to at all, so it may also crowd out weeds or perhaps the area was being sprayed or weeded and I never saw it.

I've kept it in a basement with no real natural light around. It went dark and still thrived. It started growing itself into the wall, through paint.

A great movie through and through. Highly recommended and a welcome addition to my science fiction movie catalog.
