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.
TODO - Watch the special features, there's a lot.
A cop's early investigation into a police fund theft has him killed, leaving his framed hostage-negotiator partner to use the only tool he has available to find the real killer.
A really great movie with a unique topic. Recommended.
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.
