The Tangle - (2019 movie) poster

Entertainment > Movies >

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt5080046/

Humanity has been infected by nanobots controlled by an AI that ends violence, which, although about as horrifying as it sounds, many people want it and some even work for it.

Slow and halting, but with a good premise. It leans heavily into acting, which isn't at the level needed to make this shine. Still, it's not a turd.

This would have made for an excellent pilot episode.

A key survivor of a world destroyed by a plague is forced to save it. I think.

It's generally slow and boring; luke warm at best, but recommended if you're into this sort of thing.

A retired couple has a secret chamber buried in their backyard that leads to a deserted planet. When an enigmatic young man arrives, their quiet existence is upended and the mysterious Chamber they thought they knew so well turns out to be much more than they could have ever imagined.

They really, really, lean into age in this show.

A dude plays VR video games and ends up playing on in particular.

It's kinda neat so far I guess.

A time traveler goes back for some reason I guess.

A weak comedy of some sort, but I'm unforgiving for the woke, so no thanks.

Following agents of a supercomputer.

It's incredibly dark, and I don't mean it's all moody and shit; it's so damned dim it's hard to make most things out.

A astronaut has an accident in space and comes back crazy.

It's like a sort of brooding bubblegum show; light on the science, heavy on the fiction, and with some horror mixed in.

Our dude uses every resource for revenge against the Harkonnen who murdered his family and people.

It would be watchable, even good, if it didn't have odd gaps in it. It's as though there is another movie whose cloth this was cut. I'm betting there is a super duper extended length version, because I feel there are missing scenes.
