It had a lot of hope, but the writer changed anti-psychotic prescriptions mid-way and the movie went stupid.

An optics specialist is sent to investigate the unusual readings the military is getting from his equipment.

A solid movie all around. Great action and a good world, but with enough fuzzy science and The A-Team-style jury-rigging to rivet it solidly to TV-movie quality.

A Nazi demon-turned monster hunter is one of a pair of the supernatural who might bring about the end of the mankind.

Oh my god this is a departure from any sort of quality from what inspired it. It's so awkward I couldn't finish it.

A man struggles with a split personality disorder, turning to an unlikely group of young women for counseling. Haha, just kidding it's a kidnapping-horror movie.

Amazing acting, good writing, good all around. It's contained, straightforward and engaging. It was assembled well enough that I didn't take many notes.
