An average man leads an average life in a world that he can't see is exaggerated.

Very nice!

Something about the end of the world.

Flashy and trashy.

In a dystopic future akin to Brave New World - (1932 book), by Aldous Huxley, everyone is lost in a virtual reality, playing a game to take control of the world's largest corporation.

This movie is parasitic to the childhoods of old men and permanent-children. It's worth a watch if you're over 40, otherwise it'll be a fairly confusing mess of references.

A murderer is saved from death only to be used in an experiment to explore his ancestry.

It's an awkward combination of slowness with action. I suspect it could have been quite good, as it has the elements for it.. but the writing is shit in enough significant places that it can't recover. It has an abysmal resolution, making the whole experience regrettable.

In a world where video game characters are alive, a lonely bad guy tries to earn appreciation but ends up threatens ruin.

A fun movie, most appropriate for the nostalgia fans of various old arcade games. It goes very very old, like Pixels - (2015 movie), which puts it in a particularly odd space. I think this one ends up being childish and unique enough that its various reference aren't in the way of an actual proper movie.

A plague hits New York and then the world, and New York operatives are activated to do stuff and things.

Not bad for a short-ish film. There are some characters who do stuff, and there is some plot-like activity. Recommended for fans of what I call the "ruined world" genre.

An assassin, that everyone knows, does some assassiny things but everyone knows him.

This is basically a long intro to a video game. While not bad, it's not good. It is rife with over-acting and it felt confused to me. I didn't stay interested.

I see there are other shorts, but I'm not going to watch them.

Receiving a signal from her now-dead foster-parent race, Samus Aran investigates.

There is no plot. It's confusing and ugly. Do not watch this.

A time capsule shot into space back in 1982 is received as a declaration of war by aliens, who respond with multiple waves of 1980s video games-made-real, which only lifetime-loser video game nerds can face.

Uh. From the ground up, this movie cannot work. It's a kids movie which relies upon the nostalgia only a handful of middle-aged men might have but hopefully won't.
