Our dude uses every resource for revenge against the Harkonnen who murdered his family and people.

It would be watchable, even good, if it didn't have odd gaps in it. It's as though there is another movie whose cloth this was cut. I'm betting there is a super duper extended length version, because I feel there are missing scenes.

Murder in Washington, D.C. - United States has been solved by precognition, except for one mysterious case.

I like it quite a bit!

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.

here for reference

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 pig farmer gets stoned and hallucinates.

Gritty, scary, and gripping; a product of its time. Recommended both for real parenting and people who appreciate decent cinema. It's nowhere near the calibre of something like The Secret of NIMH - (1982 movie) or the like, but think gently in that direction.

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.

Harry Potter works to chip away at Voldermort's base of power, while Voldermort's army holds a tight grip on the whole of the wizarding world.

Worthy of a three-part episode in a TV series. Bad writing.

Harry and friends are on the run and looking for clues to help them destroy Voledmort.

Terrible writing and it's just another episode.

The magical world cowers in fear as it's recruited or picked off by Voldemort's forces.

This rides on the successes of its predecessors while technically going nowhere itself. The writing is far better, but it's an episode. You can really feel how much this movie is milking the franchise.

Harry Potter gathers his own strength in response to Voldemort.

A little more adult than its predecessors, but still badly written; bubblegum.
