Formerly-partnered magicians become dangerous rivals.

Fair at best; incredibly obvious. It's comes across as a period piece to me; I don't find it even remotely intellectually stimulating.

Dragonborn-twins have drama.

If you like the others in the Dragonheart series, then I suppose this is worth a watch.

A British wizard travels to New York City, but his case full of endangered magical creatures causes trouble in a city that already has its own creature problem.

Weak characters, a shit plot with lots of filler and generally unlikeable. Especially bad in light of the earlier movies set in this universe. God that main character is fucking terrible to watch.

I will forever misremember this title as Fantastic Breasts and Where to Find Them. No fantastic breasts were found in this movie.

Avoid, especially if you like the Harry Potter series!

It is discovered that a person and their voice can be paired with certain words to manifest effects in the real world.

Tiring. Slow, confusing, and after 12 minutes it gets into a bit of a plot. The world has not been particularly well-explained.. giving this too little substance to hold my attention.

A distracted surgeon crashes his car and is left with ruined hands, but he's brought into a magic order who defend the planet and universe and stuff.

A decent movie, although fluffy and of narrow scope.

Rescued from an unknown realm, a demon, raised as a monster-hunting government agent, faces his destiny and the destruction of the world.

A rather good movie, because it features a relatable and mortal character. The time of its release was not saturated with this genre, so it was gave a strong impression. Even re-watching it was entertaining. I think this will hold up very well over time.

Two orphans become witch hunters.

This is not horror. It's kindof a light action film. Quite good.

The style is medieval-meets-western. I've seen other movies which do this, and I like it quite a lot.

Unnecessarily foul language. It's jarring.

Great effects, camera work and general atmosphere.

A girl escapes slavery and pulls together a band of people to go on a quest.

This outclasses other B-movies or B-TV. If you like the class and genre, you'll like this.
