An antiquities reclamation rogue discovers an ancient Egyptian prison, and becomes an unwilling agent for the curse within.

At best this is an adequate movie. I could weakly recommend it for fans of this sub-genre, but otherwise give it a miss. It has a budget that's stronger than its writing or acting.

College kids go on vacation out into the woods, and everything goes horribly wrong when misunderstandings spiral out of reason.

A great movie with a great tone. Really fun to watch, but, as with most of its peers, it's great for just the one watch.

A stupid and deaf guy does stupid things while being deaf.

This was listed as a thriller and isn't even remotely thrilling. It is slow and depressing throughout. I got well past an hour without being thrilled.

A man is kidnapped and held for reasons he's never told, only to be let out to be confused alongside this movie's viewers.

I want to like this, I really do, but it makes no damned sense.

A woman is pulled back into a life of crime, only to learn that what she helped steal has other interested parties.

A mediocre movie which just feels off and awkward. Definitely not recommended.

Olga Kurylenko is either an absolutely awful actor, or playing an absolutely awful character, or maybe both. Probably both.

A science guy has a thing for eyes.

Has one long mellow semi-suspenseful tone, but doesn't take full advantage of its opportunities. It grows weaker and weaker as it drones on, and barely pretends to have a reasonable resolution.

Something about a crime and lawyers and a court and stuff, but with racism.

Not my thing.

This is the sort of movie that I can't explain without spoiling it.

It ought to be started at 17:10 with zero introduction.

The fact that I can write that with confidence should speak loudly as to its quality. It doesn't have enough "content", and so it feels drawn out. If you are passionate about reality-questioning movies, then for sure see this. Otherwise, pass.
