Americans overreact to a misunderstanding and go on a genocidal warpath across the globe and are somehow winning except for a superweapon of peace.

It does its best, but it doesn't do enough world building, character building, or anything really. While it isn't a waste of time, I wouldn't recommend it.

Like a bad fever dream, even more were sent back in time to collect information on her and possibly kidnap her.

Most scenes have the film equivalent of crayon scribbled over them, the writing is bad, the dialog is bad, the acting is mediocre, the scenery is awful, the effects are overwhelming, the audio is terrible, the music is okay in places.. it's just an hour and a half of suffering.

  • Original title: Nemesis III: Prey Harder
  • aka Nemesis 3: Time Lapse

To escape a ruined future, a genetically-enhanced child is sent back in time to grow into a She-Hulk who is too ugly to date, let alone procreate, so I'm not sure why a cyborg is sent after her.

Wow this is a special kind of bad. The first is pretty good, and incredible in comparison to this. Well, it's part of a series so let's continue suffering through them all!

  • Trailer
  • Inappropriately-rated; Rated R but no blood or swearing. I guess it's for showing some thong-butt.

In a world where cybernetics are commonplace, a cop is tasked to track down pro-human terrorists.

Nothing could possibly go wrong in an amusement park populated by robots.

A good-ish movie, which must have been spectacular at the time because of its original themes and spectacular presentation. It holds up very well over the few centuries since its release.

After a disaster, a pleasure theme park re-opens with a new population of robots.

Although this one has held up well, it does show its age. It's still spectacularly well-made, and especially well-written.

Various short stories, apparently all of which have preachy woke commentaries.

Fucking hell, pass.

An orphan struggles to survive, all the while working to repair an automaton that prompts an adventure.

Not among the greats, but it's a quiet, quaint, watchable, movie.

A corporation takes advantage of a grieving mother by using her to test a prototype robot in the guise of a little boy played by the actor from The Sixth Sense - (1999 movie) playing himself but in this movie.

Maybe in context it was special, but it's pretty obvious and tedious, and the incredibly drawn-out and potentially multiple-endings fucking suck man. If you're into robots, you should totally watch this.. once.
