    Life of Brian

    In a case of mistaken identity the protagonist doesn’t consider the possibility that he may be the messiah.

    From the Washington Post

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/goingoutguide/movies/what-to-watch-with-your-kids-missing-link-little-and-more/2019/04/12/0bb76702-50f7-11e9-88a1-ed346f0ec94f_story.html

    “Pet Sematary” is a remake of the 1989 horror movie; both films are based on Stephen King’s 1983 novel. While it’s not excessively heavy on gore, it’s plenty violent. Expect creepy, disturbing imagery and brief scenes of struggling, strangling and stabbing. A few scenes (including nightmare sequences) show blood dripping or gushing. Characters die, and a dead cat and a nearly dead bird are seen. A gun is shown, and a gunshot is heard. Language includes several uses of “f—,” “s—” and “damn.” A married couple kisses and embraces playfully and passionately in bed. A character smokes cigarettes, and several people drink whiskey (one glass is drugged with a sleeping powder).

    Characters are killed, and there are torn-up body parts, severed heads and limbs, and gouged tongues and eyeballs. There’s also lots of fighting, with punching, throwing and smashing, as well as slicing and stabbing with swords and arrows. Scenes include creepy monsters and other scary stuff, and children’s bodies are briefly shown hanging from a ceiling. Language is also strong, with frequent use of “f—,” “s—” and more. There’s a quick, non-graphic glimpse of a topless woman, seen from the side, and a couple of spoken sexual references. Hellboy (David Harbour) sometimes gets very drunk, with no consequences.

    NASA wastes a fortune training miners to be astronauts in order to blow up an asteroid, rather that train existing astronauts to mine.

    People die at a posh zoo’s test opening. Zoo later goes on to open anyway, more people die.

    Lethal Weapon.
    A decent family guy is due to retire. His mentally ill (but fundamentally well-meaning) friend kind of messes things up for him.

    Shaun Of The Dead.
    Two thirty-something slackers grab some mates and go to the pub to try and avoid civil unrest. May contain some matricide.

    shamelessly stolen from elsewhere…

    Transported to a surreal landscape, a young girl kills the first person she meets and then teams up with 3 strangers to kill again.
