Zombies ruin the world, and a lone gunman meets and helps survivors.

Plenty of action but there's nothing interesting about the world or plot; fair at best.

An alien song hits a light house and makes a soap bubble dome of mystery.

Slow, tense, and stupid.

Time Jumpers - (2018 movie) image

A compilation of short films of various topics, a couple of which feature time and jumping but none of which justify this title.

Some of these might have been padded out into a passable TV-movie, but nothing is really any good.

A boy with a chip on his shoulder learns a hard lesson only after years.

It's fair, but it loses a lot of momentum by changing style multiple times throughout.

A previously-failed super-soldier program doesn't actually get buried after all, and everyone regrets that when its maintainers try to take over.

It's too heavy on the music, but it's generally okay.

  • Properly titled Universal Soldier: The Return

A fan edit of Star Wars - The Last Jedi - (2017 movie). It's actually quite good, though its ending is incomplete.

Supergirl is super, and something about the last of the fleet that isn't the last, and shit characters and shit writing.

The earlier movies are mandatory for this. If you thought the earlier movies were shit, then this is the nail in the coffin. Just let the franchise die.

  • Properly titled Episode VIII - The Last Jedi

Supergirl supers superly.

Oh my god this is trash from every angle. Bad writing, bad acting, bad .. just bad everything everywhere always. It has no high points. Disney can suck a dick.

The story of the seven samurai .. I mean the 47 ronin I mean the 21 Sihks defending a fort.

It's not too over-the-top Bollywood, so it's a perfectly watchable "yay us" hero story.

  • Based on actual events.

47 samurai are exiled when their master is framed, and vow revenge against those responsible.

A decent enough movie; watchable and forgettable.

A man struggles with a split personality disorder, turning to an unlikely group of young women for counseling. Haha, just kidding it's a kidnapping-horror movie.

Amazing acting, good writing, good all around. It's contained, straightforward and engaging. It was assembled well enough that I didn't take many notes.
