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.

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 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.

A simple woman is tricked into smuggling for a one-week boyfriend, and does drugs to save herself.

I happen to like it a lot.

Agencies the world 'round borrow from Nazi experiments to create limited super soldiers, and Steve Rogers Nick Gant is swept up into a conspiracy for American conscripts to free themselves.

Pretty straightforward and interesting; recommended. It unfortunately doesn't tie itself up neatly.

A hacker learns reality is not as it appears.

A sci-fi ripoff of elements of Lucid dreaming, with elements taken from the Neuromancer/Shadowrun "cyberpunk" genres.

A pioneering movie for special effects, which have held up quite well, and its general pot and atmosphere. Technically not original for science fiction fans, but great nonetheless.

One of my favourites, although I really wish the actor playing Trinity (Carrie-Anne Moss) was good looking.

A series of non-cannon short animated films inspired by The Matrix - (1999 movie).

Better than the main series in some cases. I rather love every one of these short films.

A couple moves to a quiet and friendly town, but the wife, with no job and her kids grown up, has enough free time to be unhappy.

I didn't like it compared to The Stepford Wives - (1975 movie).

A criminal group sedates and enters the dreams of targets to steal their secrets.

I'm sure it's wonderful and nuanced for lots of people, but to me it's just okay. I find it rather obvious and uninteresting.
