A miniseries told around the Soviet Chernobyl disaster.

A tense, decently-paced look at how communist lies spell disaster, and how communism once again cost tens of thousands and almost tens of millions of lives.

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

A kickass preacher is infected with a power, and for some reason there's a vampire.

Maybe it has potential, but it's scatterbrained and kept sliding into slow moody boringness.

A highly-virulent weaponized virus breaks containment and wreaks havoc.

It starts strong then goes downhill into some odd religious stuff. Generally terrible later on. Worth watching if you're into this genre.

An optics specialist is sent to investigate the unusual readings the military is getting from his equipment.

A solid movie all around. Great action and a good world, but with enough fuzzy science and The A-Team-style jury-rigging to rivet it solidly to TV-movie quality.

A comedy where wannabe-terrorists are too stupid to terrorize properly.

A terrible movie which I couldn't finish. British humor is already kind of crappy half the time, but this is incredibly weak.

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.

The Magnificent Seven - (2016 movie) poster

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..
