James vs. His Future Self - (2019 movie) poster

Entertainment > Movies >

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt6739796/

A supernerd's future self visits him to proclaim a warning of his wasting his life.

Plodding and boring. There are some laughs, but I don't see why this would be considered a comedy.

The Blackout - (2019 movie) poster English

The vanguard of an alien race fleeing from their ageing star contest control of the earth and the survivors of humanity.

A bit stiff, but quite good.

  • I have not seen (listened-to) the Russian-language version.

Quest - (1984 movie) image

Entertainment > Movies >

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0086162/

A group of people grow old and die in eight days (somehow), and have been sending people on a quest to open a distant doorway which will (somehow) return a normal timeline to them.

  • Note that it itself says it's 1983 even though IMDB says it's 1984.
