A new security chief is assigned to a mining colony, and discovers that there has been a rash of irrational suicides.
Yet another buddy cop movie, but this time instead of
<random race> it is an Orc, and instead of
</random><random drugs> it's magic.
An adequate movie.
Overall this is adequate, but with several plot points and character traits which are difficult to believe. The biggest problem I have is the various brushes against citizen-terrorism apologetics. My takeaway is that this show is "safe", with some edginess fabricated for the kids.
An evil scientist constructs a robot surrogate and transfers his consciousness into it to carry out his plans for global domination by kidnapping a very wealthy sheikh's son.
A watchable moderate-budget movie which somehow still falls into an 80s-cheese style. It's rare to find such a bold movie, even with it being unashamedly graphic to the point of dark comedy. I think that's why I like it.
It's worth watching once.

A detective is haunted with hallucinations that include his dead partner, who was killed under mysterious circumstances.
I think some would find this movie slow and boring, and I did at first, but it very quickly revealed a depth and character that I haven't seen in any television show before and I doubt I will again.
This isn't a classic cop-and-mystery show. All I can say is give this a good chance, at least until the end of the second episode.
A crew on route to a space station learns that it's crippled by a meteor storm.
It's 1990s quality. Seeing as it's a TV movie, that's not surprising. Overall it's fair, but I wouldn't recommend it.
- aka Black Horizon
There is the occasional unsubtitled Russian language bit, but they are meant to be unobtrusive.
Driven by De Beers' manufactured value of diamonds, the story follows a robbery being investigated by police and an ugly insurance woman of some sort.
Maybe it gets better, but it's slow and boring. Maybe I needed to see an extended-length pilot episode. This has John Hurt, but that's not good enough for me. Maybe I should have given this more of a chance, but .. I'm not going to.
- Has scenes spoken in the French language, with English subtitles. It takes place in France, so there are a lot.
Has scenes spoken in the Serbian language, with English subtitles.
The bar for entry into the police force is lowered, and misfits enter the police academy.
Overall, this was worth a couple of laughs, but the sexism and racism need to be viewed too in-context for me to deal with it. This language/culture/whatever difference removes any chance of timelessness this movie might have had.

- Police Academy 7 - Mission to Moscow
A somehow-pushover swat-whatever officer becomes embroiled in southern USA drug stuff.
Not for me on so many levels, particularly because the lead character is unrealistic and unlikeable.
The people of Detroit are being forcefully evicted and relocated to a corporate-owned city.
Unless you're a serious fan, just give this a pass. It doesn't really build on the franchise and it's corny.
