A guy is reincarnated and chooses to become a hero in a war against demons.

Pretty interesting.

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.

An ugly, unaccomplished, student discovers a hidden world within which he becomes a hero and transforms himself in that and the real world.

It might be quite good, but because the main character is superpowered it's a pretty shitty story angle; not recommended.

  • aka / properly titled: I Got a Cheat Skill in Another World and Became Unrivaled in the Real World, Too
  • Note that every episode has an end-credit scene.
  • A second season has been confirmed

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.

Survivors of a ruined Earth cast away to a new Earth, aptly called "New Earth", but some people are stupid and prefer extinction (for that ship).

It had some potential, but it slid way way downhill.

Cell phones turn people into zombie bees or something.

A nothing of a movie that makes no sense and has a shit ending. There was unrealized potential, but this is definitely not recommended.

Americans overreact to a misunderstanding and go on a genocidal warpath across the globe and are somehow winning except for a superweapon of peace.

It does its best, but it doesn't do enough world building, character building, or anything really. While it isn't a waste of time, I wouldn't recommend it.

During a zombie apocalypse, a guy with a past gets selected for his skills to pursue a cure.

Pretty good all around. I like the realism.

John Wick returns to alternately ruin and end his friends lives in the hopes of leveraging an obscure rule to free himself from .. whatever their assassins society is called.

It's adequate, but has nowhere near equality: I think one unimportant woman dies on-screen and then the body vanishes, another gets hurt, and this has to be the most brutally misandrist movie I've ever seen. Feminist approved!

A possible cure for the plague that has ruined the world could be brought from New York City to Atlanta, but for a powerful gang that stumbled upon the opportunity.

It's not great, but it's not bad. Definite bubblegum movie watching; put your brain on hold and enjoy it for what it was trying to me. I don't regret the time I spent on this.
