It is discovered that a person and their voice can be paired with certain words to manifest effects in the real world.

Tiring. Slow, confusing, and after 12 minutes it gets into a bit of a plot. The world has not been particularly well-explained.. giving this too little substance to hold my attention.

The Division - Agent Origins (2016) image

A plague hits New York and then the world, and New York operatives are activated to do stuff and things.

Not bad for a short-ish film. There are some characters who do stuff, and there is some plot-like activity. Recommended for fans of what I call the "ruined world" genre.

Every time the beautiful Regina rejects his advances, James pushes a red button and tries again, all the while unaware of the reality and consequences of his actions.

Directed by Devon Avery.

Short and funny.

An assassin, that everyone knows, does some assassiny things but everyone knows him.

This is basically a long intro to a video game. While not bad, it's not good. It is rife with over-acting and it felt confused to me. I didn't stay interested.

I see there are other shorts, but I'm not going to watch them.

I heard of Codehunters from one of those idiotic "10 things you didn't know"-type YouTube videos. It had a reference to Borderlands having artwork similarity.

However, it turns out to be Kotaku's usual bullshit "journalism" based on a reddit comment thread. No, really. For all anyone knows, Kotak-eww made it all up.

Overall, this short is decent. Good enough to deserve the recognition it did. There are plenty of other similar styles and stories which are like this though.

A standard Robot Chicken, but with various skits parodying the Star Wars franchise.

Have a half hour to waste? Give this a shot, but if you don't like it within the first few minutes go do something better. Robot Chicken is hit-and-miss.

Receiving a signal from her now-dead foster-parent race, Samus Aran investigates.

There is no plot. It's confusing and ugly. Do not watch this.

  • Properly titled Metroid: The Sky Calls
  • See also Metroid the video game, on Wikipedia.
  • A Sam R. Balcomb film.

Kung Fury travels through time to fight the forces of Kung F├╝hrer.

A fantastic action-comedy, most especially for people who grew up in the 1980s.
