Momentum - (2015 movie) poster

A woman is pulled back into a life of crime, only to learn that what she helped steal has other interested parties.

A mediocre movie which just feels off and awkward. Definitely not recommended.

Olga Kurylenko is either an absolutely awful actor, or playing an absolutely awful character, or maybe both. Probably both.

It should be summarized as: A noble kingdom is taken by force, forcing a prince to flee and live a life that turns to adventure, to later return to contest for the throne.

However. However it's all over the place. It doesn't properly delve into any aspect, and doesn't properly string things together. It has all the elements of a good, or at least fair, movie, but it wasn't written well.

A science guy has a thing for eyes.

Has one long mellow semi-suspenseful tone, but doesn't take full advantage of its opportunities. It grows weaker and weaker as it drones on, and barely pretends to have a reasonable resolution.

Beautiful Prison - (2016 movie) image

This is the sort of movie that I can't explain without spoiling it.

It ought to be started at 17:10 with zero introduction.

The fact that I can write that with confidence should speak loudly as to its quality. It doesn't have enough "content", and so it feels drawn out. If you are passionate about reality-questioning movies, then for sure see this. Otherwise, pass.

A documentary about Robert Crumb.

A lineage of broken genetics is passed on to children, one of whom drew odd things oddly and got famous because normies couldn't or wouldn't do it. He got and stayed famous because he got there first. Everyone fawns over him to be cool.

There's a lot of anti-consumerism, anti-industry and general cultural critique. Unfortunately, the whole thing gets interesting only in the latter third, and the good cultural critique is scattered throughout that.

All things considered, this isn't a great movie, an interesting person or an interesting topic. For people unaware of the reality, this shows the broken side of certain kinds of artist.

Not recommended.

Trailer

People kill themselves because they're stupid, because hand-waving science and shit.

Firstly, this is not a romance. Lastly, it's shit. Terrible writing for a terrible world with terrible characters.

Something something narration and murder-mystery.

Great acting, but not a very good story or presentation.. I just didn't like it. I only saw this for Michelle Monaghan, and it was worth it.

An evil scientist works to realize his vision, but his previous superhero creations are assembled to go against him.

Russia's answer to Marvel, I guess. High-budget and shockingly-poorly executed. Odd and badly-written, it's not bad enough to be fun and funny. I recommend this movie for people who are tired of all the superhero movies.. it is like a vegetable cleanse.
