- Based on Seven Years in Tibet - (1954 book), by Heinrich Harrer
aka the movie that got Brad Pitt banned from China.
During the thrashing of an epileptic seizure, an editor stitches together bits of various unrelated shorts into a single movie filled with famous people and great music.
If one can labour past the non science-fiction, it's pretty good. In fact, I think if one cut out everything except two of the storylines, they would make for good shorts. I may do that one day.
I wouldn't imagine this to have been a critical success.
An investigator of airplane disasters learns their passengers are critical to the plans of a woman he falls in love with.
This is one of the early time travel movies which really grabbed me and brought me into the genre. I don't know that I'd call it great or could strongly recommended it to others, but I like it a lot.
Based on Air Raid - (1977 story), by John Varley
Avoid, especially if you like the Harry Potter series!
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.
A girl learns she has magic powers and stuff when a bad guy and his henchmen who all like demons hunt her down for a thing she has.
A superhero-girl-witch movie. Adorable and stuff. Recommended for girls who are fans of this adorable
An agent's god-daughter is kidnapped under political circumstances, and complexities necessitate him forming his own team to rescue her.
Quite a good movie. Excellent pacing and music.
- Properly titled Agent Hamilton: But Not If It Concerns Your Daughter
Follows from Hamilton - In the Interest of the Nation (2012)
- I hear this is meant to be a trilogy, but I don't see a third movie.
A brainwashed CIA assassin who tried to retire-hide in India with his commonlaw-wife gets pulled into a mystery and stuff when she is killed in an attempt to frame him.
More of the same. Forgettable. It's not worth continuing this series.
A man is fished from the sea and has no memory. He is on the run, but he can use a gun, and a little martial arts like Bruce Lee.
Long and drawn out, with a plot that doesn't even remotely begin to make any sense whatsoever until the movie is basically over.
Brings nothing to the table. I think this was successful not because it's any good but because it was shown during a drought of movies in this genre-ballpark.

Stuff about living in a shit building. I couldn't get through it.
This is supposedly dystopian-esque and science fiction.. but .. I didn't see any of that.
During World War II, a lucky Soviet soldier is fictionalized into a hero, but he truly earns that distinction only to find himself up against the German's very best.
With a good pace and atmosphere, this movie is riveting.
