An archaeologist seeks an ancient Egyptian amulet to gain godlike powers.

A great fan film. I wish I had a better source than the 240p on YouTube, but I didn't actually look around at all.

A man is fished from the sea and has no memory. He is on the run, but he can use a gun, and a little martial arts like Bruce Lee.

Long and drawn out, with a plot that doesn't even remotely begin to make any sense whatsoever until the movie is basically over.

Brings nothing to the table. I think this was successful not because it's any good but because it was shown during a drought of movies in this genre-ballpark.

Hitler is pulled into his future, and being able to do nothing but be himself, he is taken to be a comedian.

I know this is meant as a comedy, but.. it's just off. It's worth a watch, but just the one. It touches on quite a lot of .. well touchy subjects. Perhaps this movie will greatly improve in time, while things aren't so sensitive.

In a world where video game characters are alive, a lonely bad guy tries to earn appreciation but ends up threatens ruin.

A fun movie, most appropriate for the nostalgia fans of various old arcade games. It goes very very old, like Pixels - (2015 movie), which puts it in a particularly odd space. I think this one ends up being childish and unique enough that its various reference aren't in the way of an actual proper movie.

A mercenary group is sent to an island for training exercises, only to learn that it was being used to train military robots.

Although pretty stiff because of the lead character, this is a decent enough movie. Worth watching for science fiction fans, but not for military movie fans.

Twenty years after the near-annihilation of Earth, aliens return.

Not a particularly good movie. Definitely not worth a watch for science fiction movie fans. I don't know who the target audience is supposed to be. There's no character development, poor drama, uninspired action, un-notable writing.. so un-notable that I made a word up. Screw you, red squiggle.. I defy you.

The last remaining city in a ruined world learns it has an oversight committee funding a research project overseeing them.

An adequate movie, filled with no character development, an uninteresting world and a mediocre plot. Good for a watch for people who like the earlier movies in this series, or people too young and dumb to know what a good movie actually is.

  • Properly titled The Divergent Series: Allegiant
  • The sequel to TODO
  • Based on Allegiant (2013-10 book), by Veronica Roth

A man attains mystical powers originally for selfish reasons, but they taint with a life fraught with danger and demons.

Not a bad show, but the lead character's personality isn't attracting, and there's the old celestial stick-up-the-ass personality in another. The lead female is hot. Hotty hot hot.

This was cancelled after one season. Back in the 90s this show would have done well, but I'm guessing this genre has alternately been well-poisoned or saturated. This show has too much it has to be better than to catch enough attention to survive. I think that it's magic-fantasy was competing with an extraordinarily-strong superhero-fantasy genre.

A warrior race escapes a decaying world by invading a new one.

I hold no strong opinion of this. It's .. mediocre.

  • aka Warcraft: The Beginning
