Sixteen Candles - (1984 movie) poster

I don't even know how to describe this movie.

It's only okay. It's notable because it's somehow rated PG but is so utterly completely unsuitable to that rating; legendary.

Ghost - (1990 movie) poster

A man is robbed and unintentionally killed on the way home from the theater, and trains to become an avenger for justice.

This is somehow not an alternate Batman origin story. Although it's intentionally slow-paced in a lot of places to draw out the emotion, it is quite nice; recommended.

Andromedia - (1998 movie) image

A girl is digitized, becoming a valuable commodity for people seeking power and immortality.

This might be interesting for fans of science fiction history, but it's dumb in too many places for me to enjoy it.

If you end up watching this, here are my edited Andromedia subtitles.

Press a hotkey (out of combat) to remember an assist target. Press another to assist them.

It sounds simple, even unnecessary, but it makes life so much easier.

A bar that displays your threat. Duh.

Quite customizable. I just use it for a slim bar. It helps me know when I've built too much threat and reminds me when I've caught it.

TODO - Is this out in blu-ray?

A girl, engineered to be a killer, flees her keepers, but as a woman she pursues general vigilante justice by helping a crime-fighting genius.

This series hits the ground running, featuring not just a stupifyingly hot Jessica Alba, but a great world, plot and everything else.

However, like too many series', Dark Angel suicide-bombs like it's been lit on fire and is heading for a volcano to end it's suffering. Not only is the second season bad enough to end the show, it's bad enough to not watch, even and especially for people who like the first.

Andromeda (2000-2005) poster

Unfrozen after 300 years, the captain of the most powerful ship in existence moves to rebuild his fallen Commonwealth with the help of a rag-tag group of civilians.

This series is high quality with a light (sometimes cheesy) mood. Although I can say I love this series, it definitely takes a nosedive later in its life, and absolutely fails miserably in its final "wrap-up" season. It's like these writers sabotage their own work.

Upon re-watching this, I can say that I do enjoy it, but it's definitely pulp/drama as opposed to being actually-awesome. There are some layers to it, but its general theme of being "fun" gets in the way too frequently to have those subtle moments elevate the rest of it.
