A head is found in the garbage and is stitched back onto a body like science fiction necromancy.

A twelve-year-old-girl-friendly science fiction movie. It had such potential, but it absolutely ruined it by having no resolution.

Solo - A Star Wars Story - (2018 movie) image

A prequil adventure with the eponymous Han Solo. It has no excitement since with a prequil there can't be any sense of accomplishment without any chance of failure.

A franchise so strong I didn't even know this movie was released or was even being made.

Not recommended, even for fans. It gives and does nothing. It's vaguely entertaining.

A super-secret military robot suit appears in a part-time mechanic's truck, and he fiddles with it enough to get trapped in it. Wanting to visit his soon to be ex-girlfriend, he wrecks a path of havoc while being chased by people trying to retrieve or destroy it.

This movie was a major inspiration for the skimming (ground-gliding) for Ember.

The Earth is ruined when aliens invade, and a maintenance skeleton crew monitors killer drones to protect resource-gathering efforts for survivors.

A fantastic movie from every angle. A very strong mood throughout. Highly recommended.

In a dystopic future akin to Brave New World - (1932 book), by Aldous Huxley, everyone is lost in a virtual reality, playing a game to take control of the world's largest corporation.

This movie is parasitic to the childhoods of old men and permanent-children. It's worth a watch if you're over 40, otherwise it'll be a fairly confusing mess of references.

In a futuristic Germany, a mute guy has relationship troubles.

An interesting world, but generally terrible writing.

  • German is unnecessarily sprinkled throughout this movie.
  • Intended as a spiritual successor to Moon - (2009 movie), though I don't see how.

Artificial intelligence is created, but they forgot to Send a philosopher, so things go to shit somehow there are survivors.

It borrows from various other things, but doesn't execute anything very well. It just comes off as being badly written. I should have guessed based on the production company's amateur-night page.
