Spawn - (1997 movie) poster

A veteran mercenary is double-crossed and finds himself blacklisted into becoming a general in hell's army.

This is a very high low-budget movie. It's over-the-top, corny but only almost-fun. Some of the effects are amazing, but some are so damned bad I can't imagine how they thought this could be anything more than a middling success. From a writing perspective, it's not bad moment-to-moment, but the overall plot is a bit stupid.

This has nothing going for it but the incredible acting of a clown.

A boy that's beaten up a lot decides that murder is both the best revenge and career. Wait, it's about the man though. Well there's narration so don't worry he's never in any danger.

Kinda funny and kinda interesting sometimes, but god damn does it drag on; it could have been done much better, and done better quite easily too.

A zombie apocalypse fells Japan and it's up to an almost-NEET everyman to mostly save a couple of people.

A straightforward and largely unsurprising movie; fine for wasting some time.

The gods are real and deposited horrifying trinkets, one of which falls into the hands of a ne'er-do-well who abuses it to the great misfortune of everyone.

God damn Gal Gadot is beautiful. Also there is a movie which isn't half bad.

The universe is actually ruled by an emperor, who toys with the Earth and gets the attention of a few people who try to stop him.

With the power of Nietzsche, a barbarian-turned-warrior seeks revenge on those who killed his people.

This movie ROCKS. Very thoughtful stuff.
