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.

An assassination attempt on a senator gets her two superpowered-bodyguards, one of whom has the hots for her and whose investigation leads to a mystery that has remained shrouded for ten years.

While nowhere near as good as Star Wars Episode I.II - The Phantom Edit - (2000 movie) is compared to its source, Attack of the Phantom is an adequate watch and certainly head and shoulders above its source. Unfortunately this movie also requires Star Wars - Episode III - Revenge of the Sith - (2005 movie) be watched immediately afterwards, and since there was never a phantom edit made of that I don't know if I can recommend this.

It's flagged as disliked, but I don't feel that I wasted my time watching it. I just feel let down by the ending.

The Trade Federation blockades a peaceful planet, and decisive action is required to bring political and military strength to bear.

An astonishing improvement on the original. Even though it's lower visual quality than it's original can be, it's worth a watch. Very highly recommended especially to fans of the original trilogy who were disappointed by this new trilogy.

Vampires are real, and a secret council, whose formation is never explained, support a good-vampire on her mission to mercilessly slaughter bad-vampires in search for the worst-vampire who she was told killed her father.

For a while I was quite captivated by this movie. It was good in every respect, but it seemed to take a turn for the worse half way through, and just kept sliding. Overall it's good, but elements of it are too similar to other famous movies for me to really find it interesting, especially since those elements are rushed.

It's decent enough to recommend for a one-time watch.

A stargate is shown to connect to another galaxy, but the trip proves to be one-way and fraught with new evils.

Fairly good, I guess. It's definitely not as good as Stargate SG-1 - (1997-2007 show) but is a mandatory view if you like that show.

A series of non-cannon short animated films inspired by The Matrix - (1999 movie).

Better than the main series in some cases. I rather love every one of these short films.
