A Nazi demon-turned monster hunter is one of a pair of the supernatural who might bring about the end of the mankind.

Oh my god this is a departure from any sort of quality from what inspired it. It's so awkward I couldn't finish it.

7 gunmen, for approximately 2.5 reasons, fight on behalf of a town they don't actually care about.

Fair. I mean.. it's just fair. Why bother with a remake if it's not going to even attempt to be better? It's a knockoff of the 1960 version set in California United States. Recommended for fans of westerns, but only so you can say that you saw it..

This goes back in time to the original finding of the stargate, and stars a character we all know lives and so cannot be in any danger at all ever.

This just comes across like short-episode fan fiction.

A cop is saved from death but brought into a supernatural police department.

A fair movie. It has some fairly amusing moments but is overall an engaging bubblegum movie.

A small research vessel is knocked down by a meteor shower, triggering a panicked military response and causing hundreds of civilian casualties.

An endearing and distracting movie. Recommended, even though the dubbing is exaggerated and loud.

An alternate energy generator is invented, and a test pilot goes through as a fail-safe.

It might have been good, but the perspective was awful and it amplified already-poor writing. The secondary perspective of hopping around in time was aggravating.

Criminals are sent to Mars to fight super-cockroaches.

Young adults go on a vacation on Labor Day weekend, but their neighbor has an abduction story.

Overall a decent enough movie with a weak ending. It could have had a lot more subtlety and explanation woven throughout to create a more complete movie-universe.
