The Earth is ruined when aliens invade, and a maintenance skeleton crew monitors killer drones to protect resource-gathering efforts for survivors.

A fantastic movie from every angle. A very strong mood throughout. Highly recommended.

In a dystopic future akin to Brave New World - (1932 book), by Aldous Huxley, everyone is lost in a virtual reality, playing a game to take control of the world's largest corporation.

This movie is parasitic to the childhoods of old men and permanent-children. It's worth a watch if you're over 40, otherwise it'll be a fairly confusing mess of references.

Artificial intelligence is created, but they forgot to Send a philosopher, so things go to shit somehow there are survivors.

It borrows from various other things, but doesn't execute anything very well. It just comes off as being badly written. I should have guessed based on the production company's amateur-night page.

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.

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
