I could only get through the first chapter before setting this down. It has flowery awkward old English which I will avoid from now on.
Its first impression is that it's sort of Star Trek parody-thing, it quickly unfolds into its own unique space-adventure-drama.
Fantastic originality and mood. Recommended, rapidly approaching highly recommended.
Like other shows these days, I became interested in this purely because "those people" "hate" it.
An anti-robot cop investigates the death of the father of contemporary artificial intelligence-enabled robots.
A great movie through and through. Highly recommended and a welcome addition to my science fiction movie catalog.
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.
The world learns that an old artifact is alien in origin, and set out to Venus to meet its creators.
Not terrible, but not my thing. I'm not a fan of old B-movies, and it being so old makes it impossible for me to judge it properly. I can summarize with: It has classic stiff acting and awkward writing.

aka Spaceship Venus Does Not Reply
Something about a powerful thing that was taken, and a conspiracy. I guess.
Terrible. Simply terrible. A bad setup to the universe, a whole lot of shit pulled out of thin air.. generally bad writing and a bad mood. Bad pacing. Everything about it is terrible. Do not watch.
A cop gets sent back in time alongside criminals.
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.
Some people wake up with no memories, alone on board a ship. Blah blah mysteries and stuff.
It gets the basics right, but it ends up being shit in all the important places. The writing and tone of the show is terrible. I couldn't get past two episodes before being disgusted. A show ought to hook me in the pilot, but this didn't have one.. and it shows.
I really liked this one, and I'll take notes when I re-watch it.
