A criminal syndicate works toward panic to implement legal changes.

It was slow, awkward and amateur.. and I watched the first part and stopped watching after just 20 minutes.

The Romulans have an internal power struggle, and The Enterprise is brought in for diplomacy by one of their factions, which has a member particularly interested in their captain.

Generally trashy and obvious, with multiple issues throughout. Not worth watching. Definitely avoid if not already a fan of the television show, as this is an absolute mess without a moderate understanding of its lore.

  • Properly titled Star Trek X: Nemesis

With killer-machines digging down to bypass the defences of the last refuge of mankind, a man with sudden magic powers magics with his powers.

Oh god, make it end. The writing is so fucking sloppy that the second movie and this third movie should not be watched by anyone, most especially fans of the first movie.

  2. The Matrix Reloaded - (2003 movie)

Just like this poster, this movie has no brains.

The war against The Machines escalates, and it's a race between them digging down to Zion and The One pushing his way into the core of The Matrix for reason that wasn't explained very well.

If there are people out there who saw the first one and somehow get to this post before seeing this movie, please avoid this. Yes it's more of the same and it's "good", but this is a shit story that should be skipped.

This movie does not have an ending. It is part one of a mandatory two-movie binge.

Artificial intelligence is created but is somehow only used as a personal assistant.

Awkward and slow, and so lacking in intellectual merit as to make it far too weak a story. Science fiction chick flicks are fucking weak.

During the thrashing of an epileptic seizure, an editor stitches together bits of various unrelated shorts into a single movie filled with famous people and great music.

If one can labour past the non science-fiction, it's pretty good. In fact, I think if one cut out everything except two of the storylines, they would make for good shorts. I may do that one day.

I wouldn't imagine this to have been a critical success.

An investigator of airplane disasters learns their passengers are critical to the plans of a woman he falls in love with.

This is one of the early time travel movies which really grabbed me and brought me into the genre. I don't know that I'd call it great or could strongly recommended it to others, but I like it a lot.

G.I. Joe - The Rise of Cobra - (2009 movie) poster

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1046173/

Newly-developed military nano-technology is stolen by terrorists in a plot to take over the world, and only a super-elite team chosen from the international best can stop them.

This movie is another example of both an astonishingly wide gap between its original audience and current audience, and a needless unimagination in original movie universe-building authorship.

  • Properly titled G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra
  • Based on the G.I. Joe toy / cartoon franchise.
  • In association with Hasbro.

In a world where everyone must take a daily suppressant to survive a deadly plague, one cop is put on the case of a string of murders targeting its researchers.

As usual, Christopher Lambert is a terrible actor. I just realized he's another Keanu Reeves, where if you like the guy you'll be just fine.. and you'll also know how each of his characters will look and feel.

Kelly Brook is a work of art.
