Kung Fury travels through time to fight the forces of Kung Führer.

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

The misbehaving millionaire son of a lost father learns that his disappearance was in a digital world he authored but was trapped in after a coup from its inhabitants.

The uncanny valley of the main baddy / young version of the main character is terrible. What would have been amazing is if the effect were really really improved for the "true" version of the character, but kept uncanny for his copy, Clu.

However, the soundtrack, hell the audio, and the sheer scale of the movie is astonishing. I know others don't find this movie appealing, but I love it so damned much. I love it beyond the nostalgia of the original, but as an entirely separate movie.

Oh so very highly recommended.

Highschool students discover prototype equipment and plans for a time machine, and become highschool students with a time machine; which is a bad idea.

A fantastic movie.

Formerly-partnered magicians become dangerous rivals.

Fair at best; incredibly obvious. It's comes across as a period piece to me; I don't find it even remotely intellectually stimulating.

The gods are real and deposited horrifying trinkets, one of which falls into the hands of a ne'er-do-well who abuses it to the great misfortune of everyone.

God damn Gal Gadot is beautiful. Also there is a movie which isn't half bad.
