Nothing could possibly go wrong in an amusement park populated by robots.

A good-ish movie, which must have been spectacular at the time because of its original themes and spectacular presentation. It holds up very well over the few centuries since its release.

An American captain, suffering from PTSD-induced nightmares so bad he became alcoholic, is brought back into the trade as a consultant and trainer to suppress the civil war in Japan and fight against its old warrior class, the samurai.

Some people with accents drive a carriage through the snow and talk a lot.

Oh god, this was supposed to be good? If it can't get interesting in the first half an hour then why in the fuck should I continue watching?
