A feminist's documentary about men's (human) rights.

A refreshing piece of work, with the intellectual morals to actually talk to the men's rights advocates being talked about. The contrast between "the sides" is truly astonishing.

Betrayed by his partner-in-crime over syndicate buy-in money, and by his wife over his affair, a man returns from his assumed-murder to collect his cut from their last job.

An amazing movie that has a great tone throughout. It's straightforward and blunt. Although Mel Gibson is flat, it works for both the character and the movie.

The son of a billionaire family survives them in a plane crash in the Himalayas, and returns after being raised by monks only to find their ancient enemies throughout his old home and business. Basically Marvel's Batman.

At first I was going to ignore this series, because the Iron Fist trailer made it look like utter trash, but the YUR A WHITE MALE "mainstream liberal media" response made me interested.

Even though the superhero genre is generally tiring, this show is well worth watching, and its response is a beautiful example of fake news manufactured by "social" "justice".

A day-walking vampire halts his crusade against them, forming a truce to hunt an even worse monster.

An adequate movie, with an acceptable amount of over-the-top nonsense. Definitely worth watching for fans of the original. Easily stands the test of time.

  • Properly titled Blade II

Born as the survivor of a bitten-pregnancy, a part-vampire "day walker" continues his crusade amidst one of their ranks' power play for leadership.

A classic movie, before the whole superhero genre got entirely out of hand. It's an unfortunate rewriting of the original comic book, but it does well with what it has. It's blunt and stiff, yet entertaining.

It has only a couple of moments of technology which feel old, otherwise it has held up well.

Boda Secreta - (1989 movie) poster

A man wakes up naked with amnesia and seeks out his fiance from years ago.

Not great and not recommended. It's got a shaky story and a weakly-portrayed world. Both the movie's world and the film quality are particularly low. Its acting and speech are stiff.

  • In English, the title is Secret Wedding.

In a forest where any who die rise as zombies, an escaped convict does something something.

I got 1/3 in and got bored. It's too over-the-top.

A military man is enlisted into a mission to save Chicago United States from a terror attack.

A fantastic, emotional, movie. This has all the elements of quality which make a movie truly great.

I'm surprised I took next to no notes. There really isn't any actual "substance" to this film, in the sense that there are few references to people, places, or things. It's all one contained package that is surprisingly easy to lose time with.
