Before I start this review, I want to preface this by saying that I know Bright doesn’t appear to be overtly cyberpunk.

Wow…I did not expect this in the slightest. Originally titled as Cyber God, and then Stephen King’s: The Lawnmower Man (even though it virtually bore no resemblance to his short story) and finally The Lawnmower Man after King’s lawsuit, the plot is as follows: ‘The eccentric Dr. Lawrence Angelo (Pierce Brosnan) puts mentally disabled landscaper […]

Rollerball is one of those special films that needs no introduction. The music. The violence. The macabre and miserable atmosphere. Unlike Death Race 2000, Rollerball contains an ethereality that permeates every second of the viewers’ film watching experience; but akin to Death Race 2000 and SF of the seventies, Rollerball continues this theme of American […]

The year is sometime in the 1980’s, possibly mid fantasised 1990’s. The world remains pixelated, and you, my friend, are the newest Hypno Enforcer.
