In the far future, the scarcity of water prompts pirates to steal ice, but they are swept up into a rebellion.

Swashbuckling-and-blasters, this movie is cheezy without being funny. I think it has some cult following merely because there wasn't much of interest back then, and this style of movie was popular for reasons outside of quality entertainment. This is like some sort of movie version of shitposting.

Absolutely not recommended, as it doesn't tick any boxes outside of nostalgia.

In a world where everyone must take a daily suppressant to survive a deadly plague, one cop is put on the case of a string of murders targeting its researchers.

As usual, Christopher Lambert is a terrible actor. I just realized he's another Keanu Reeves, where if you like the guy you'll be just fine.. and you'll also know how each of his characters will look and feel.

Kelly Brook is a work of art.

During World War II, a lucky Soviet soldier is fictionalized into a hero, but he truly earns that distinction only to find himself up against the German's very best.

With a good pace and atmosphere, this movie is riveting.

  • Based on Enemy at the Gates: The Battle for Stalingrad (1973 book), by William Craig

Once I re-watch this I'll add some more notes.

Alien - Resurrection (1997) dvd image

The survivors of an alien attack struggle to stay alive aboard their research vessel, and learn its true purpose.

Perhaps because Alien 3 (1992)[doesn't exist] wasn't as amazing as the first two, Alien: Resurrection wasn't that impactful. I think it was a cop-out of an odd reboot.

  • This is properly titled Alien: Resurrection

  1. Alien - (1979 movie)
  2. Aliens - (1986 movie)
  3. Alien 3 - (1992 movie)
  4. Alien - Resurrection - (1997 movie)

The son of a demon king, destined to destroy the world and all humanity, is just an average guy in a difficult relationship trying to save the world. Or something.

A forgettable movie made all the more terrible because of its attachment to its parent. This movie lacks anywhere near that movie's theme or mood. This is a joke semi-fantasy film.

Rescued from an unknown realm, a demon, raised as a monster-hunting government agent, faces his destiny and the destruction of the world.

A rather good movie, because it features a relatable and mortal character. The time of its release was not saturated with this genre, so it was gave a strong impression. Even re-watching it was entertaining. I think this will hold up very well over time.
