3/10: Wow that ending
Wednesday, October 2, 2019

Even though certain elements of this film were quite predictable, I felt it was executed in a clever enough fashion to keep it entertaining and exciting. Right up until the ending, of course.SPOILERS: As soon as I heard the serial killer was a young black woman I knew no one in PC Hollywood would dare make her the bad guy, so obviously all her seemingly random murders were going to be justified somehow. Honestly, I can't even blame Hollywood for that. Women are almost never serial killers, and because people don't understand statistics and population percentages, there is a general public perception that whites are the most likely to be serial killers. So when all the shiftless 'woke' activists with nothing better to do than protest learned there was a film featuring an evil black woman serial killer, they'd have burned the studio down (probably metaphorically). Hollywood exists to make money, and that's not how...

2/10: Dangerous premises
Monday, September 30, 2019

I sat down and started watching this with no idea what it was about other than it was a Sci-Fi time travel thing, something that caught my attention as i love sci-fi time travel stories and i did actually enjoy the mystery of the first half of the film until it became abundantly clear that i was unfortunately watching what i can only describe as some sort of a Violent Left Wing revenge fantasy.The premise though very loosely outlined implies through imagery evocative of 9/11 that some kind of "Right Wing" Patriot/Militia organization carries out a Terrorist attack in the future and because of this another organization in the future develops time travel so they can send a Terminator type figure back in time to whack people in an extremely violent and sadistic way. People who have committed no crimes whatsoever are sanctioned for execution because they have been found guilty in absentia for holding...

2/10: Welcome to the abyss once called cinema
Monday, November 16, 2020

I'd have given this a 5/10 from a purely technical point of view. There are glaring plotholes and the usual inconsistencies that plague most sub-par time travel movies - no biggie here. However, when the motivation of the time traveler gets clearer, this flick takes a sinister turn.The message that hollywood - represented by netflix once more - sends again and again is crystal clear by now. I don't have to spell it out for you, since every single one reading this comment - no matter your political affiliation - knows exactly what I mean. The only question that matters is: Do you agree? Do you accept the message? Do you suppport the message? Do you propagate it yourself? Or do you resent it? Do you even openly oppose it? The camps of those who are willing to give clear answers, being fully aware of their consequences, grow by the day. And with the size of the camps on both...

4/10: It was hard to take seriously
Sunday, September 29, 2019

The movie started out promising, but it just got worse as it went on. I can't say it was completely bad, I mean, to a certain extent, it was gripping enough for me to watch the whole thing(even though I had to pause it half way through and finished it a few hours later), but from the moment I saw this short skinny woman, easily overpowering those bigger and seemigly stronger police officers, it was hard not to roll my eyes at the movie, and when the movie ended and that wasn't explained I wasn't surprise.I don't want to jump in the whole "political agenda" train, however, the political messages were just so distracting. It made the movie feel predictable, from the moment I saw the serial killer was a black woman, I knew she wasn't the "bad guy", I knew all her crimes were going to be "justified".I don't know...

4/10: It's a 10! Except I'm deducting 3 for stupid plot holes, and 3 for dark evil messaging
Monday, October 7, 2019

This one had enough plot holes big enough to drive a bus through, a train, cruise ship, and dwarf planet or large moon.The movie basically lays out the premise that it's a deterministic universe, where time travel can't really change the course of history, BUT it's good to murder people to try to change that which can't be changed. The writer, actors, and director literally deliver that message. But you'll have to wade through the first, second, and part of the third act to get it. So, I'm taking 3 stars off for what otherwise would be a 10-star film.Next, it's a dark message. To prevent a civil war in the future, which can't be prevented, we must kill enough of the right (literally) people, including those that inspire them. Thank God the murder is stopped in 1988 because I believe had the murderer not been stopped, she'd...
