The artificial intelligence of an alien craft decides that humanity's reaction to a previous encounter is a threat to be suppressed.

It's a CGI-heavy drama that kinda gets going half way through. It's ultimately boring as hell.

A crazy man is reassigned to work on a theory that has driven others mad.

Visual and kinda interesting, but it tries to hard to be bubblegum and has no resolution to meet its vague intellectual attempt. Not recommended; unsatisfying.

A fan edit of Star Wars - The Last Jedi - (2017 movie). It's actually quite good, though its ending is incomplete.

Supergirl is super, and something about the last of the fleet that isn't the last, and shit characters and shit writing.

The earlier movies are mandatory for this. If you thought the earlier movies were shit, then this is the nail in the coffin. Just let the franchise die.

  • Properly titled Episode VIII - The Last Jedi

An optics specialist is sent to investigate the unusual readings the military is getting from his equipment.

A solid movie all around. Great action and a good world, but with enough fuzzy science and The A-Team-style jury-rigging to rivet it solidly to TV-movie quality.
