A ruined world is plagued by mobile cities that consume other mobile cities, and things and stuff.

Terribad; it keeps introducing new nonsense out of thin air.

A guy who is totally psychologically stable at all times goes into space because reasons.

Oh god, this is a tense but pointless movie. Not recommended.

A decent enough bubblegum movie.

A man tails a racist who goes back in time to arm the slavers in the upcoming American Civil War.

Fair I guess. Not particularly time travel or science fiction, but once it gets into things it's more of a period piece; not my thing.

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.

This goes back in time to the original finding of the stargate, and stars a character we all know lives and so cannot be in any danger at all ever.

This just comes across like short-episode fan fiction.

A small research vessel is knocked down by a meteor shower, triggering a panicked military response and causing hundreds of civilian casualties.

An endearing and distracting movie. Recommended, even though the dubbing is exaggerated and loud.
