From a future destroyed by plague, a prisoner "volunteers" to be sent back in time to fetch pre-infection samples.

A great movie that stands apart both from its contemporaries and even from movies of today. It touches upon a lot of topics I find interesting in movies.

A team investigates the killing of genetics researchers by their secret laboratory's artificial intelligence, learning it had a good reason to do so.

Quite good, even after its era. It does not show much age except for one monster. This movie headed the resurrection of the zombie movie sub-genre.

TODO - To watch with commentary and all the bonus material.

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.

An comet's path crosses the earth's, and a shuttle crew is to rendezvous with it to plant nukes to divert its course.

With a decent story and good characters, the science proves, unfortunately, fundamentally flawed. It's still a good watch and doesn't show its age.

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.

I'll take proper notes when I re-watch this.

A documentary following soldiers fighting the aliens left over from an invasion.

I rather liked this! People talk about this being low budget, but until it's pointed out I doubt someone would really notice.

The last remaining city in a ruined world learns it has an oversight committee funding a research project overseeing them.

An adequate movie, filled with no character development, an uninteresting world and a mediocre plot. Good for a watch for people who like the earlier movies in this series, or people too young and dumb to know what a good movie actually is.

  • Properly titled The Divergent Series: Allegiant
  • The sequel to TODO
  • Based on Allegiant (2013-10 book), by Veronica Roth

TODO - Oh god my DVD looks awful. I'm spoiled by Blu-Ray.

I'm not really sure what's going on with this movie. Something about cyborgs and a guy who is in love with one that he's trying to "resurrect".

It's an interesting watch, but probably only because it's Korean. I don't get to see a lot of foreign science fiction movies outside of the glut of Japanese anime. I sort of like it, but I tend to get confused in a couple of places. It'll be recommended, but only to those of a similar mind to me.

Very good subtitles; very few were awkward for me.

Surviving an assassination attempt but stranded on a hostile world, the eponymous anti-hero finds himself hunted for his bounty.

Decent, but I'd only recommend this for fans of the whole series. On it's own, it's not a particularly interesting movie.
