People have a refreshing nap and wake up to be suspiciously-nice.

A remake of a remake of an adaptation of a book. And it shows. At least Nicole Kidperson is hot.

Be certain to skip the first couple of minutes; they are a horrible horrible spoiler.

On the capture of his last surviving clone, an evil alien enacts a time-editing plan to defeat his human enemies.

It's basically a long episode. As such, it would be impossible to appreciate without having watched much of the series.

Note: I don't know that I would put it here in this the viewing order.

In a futuristic Germany, a mute guy has relationship troubles.

An interesting world, but generally terrible writing.

  • German is unnecessarily sprinkled throughout this movie.
  • Intended as a spiritual successor to Moon - (2009 movie), though I don't see how.

From a future destroyed by plague, a prisoner "volunteers" to be sent back in time to fetch pre-infection samples.

A great movie that stands apart both from its contemporaries and even from movies of today. It touches upon a lot of topics I find interesting in movies.

A special agent combat-cyborg pursues a cyber criminal who comes to have a special interest in her.

Although I like it, I suspect it's because I like the original so much and I can't be unbiased. I also think Scarlett is hot.

I became even more interested in seeing this movie in light of the incorrectly-supposed-whitewashing of the lead character. Antisocial injustice is actually pretty good at recommending things.

Betrayed by his partner-in-crime over syndicate buy-in money, and by his wife over his affair, a man returns from his assumed-murder to collect his cut from their last job.

An amazing movie that has a great tone throughout. It's straightforward and blunt. Although Mel Gibson is flat, it works for both the character and the movie.

An archaeologist seeks an ancient Egyptian amulet to gain godlike powers.

A great fan film. I wish I had a better source than the 240p on YouTube, but I didn't actually look around at all.

This is a steaming pile of shit. Do not watch it!

Having fallen from grace, two friends are reunited in their pursuit of ghosts, eventually forming a band of four who fight them. And stuff.

This is neither a sequel to the actual Ghostbusters - (1984 movie), nor is it anything in its style or quality. It's just a theft of the franchise. It shits all over it. Ignoring all of that, it's still an awful movie on its own.

This is not a comedy! Don't mistake it for one! The only funny scene had nothing to do with the main characters.

The apocalypse happens, and a bunch of average celebrities try to survive.

Moderately terrible. Worth a watch if you like these particular actors and their previous works.
