So I guess this movie is kinda like The Matrix, is it any coincidence that Keanu Reeves stars in these kinda movies?? Probably not.

0:38 "guerilla-fighters in the info-wars"... aha, so I guess now we know exactly where Alex Jones GOT HIS NAME FROM!!!!!!!!??!

Just by this opening screen I can tell this movie foretold a bunch of the stuff that we're seeing today and will probably see in the future. Especially with the "Nerve Attenuation Syndrome" (NAS).

1:07 so I gather from these scrolling word thingies that Keanu's character in this movie is gonna be a mnemonic courier. That's hot.

1:55 TBH the graphics aren't even that bad.

1:59 this is the day it's supposed to be in the movie... https://theweek.com/10things/961605/10-t...ry-17-2021

I have a pretty good guess what I was doing on January 17, 2021.

3:13 nice green satin sheets though. I sleep with a clean green satin pillowcase every night.

6:12 the elevator attendant's reaction to the TV interception was so perfect... that dude is hot AF.

6:33 so it's essentially NeuraLink.

7:00 160 GB is still a decent-ish size.

8:50 there are a shit ton of super hot Asian dudes in this movie.

Why would he purposely take on a task that he doesn't have enough storage for when the consequences are so dire???

10:18 that's like, super complicated.

12:50 ew, that's not hot.

15:55 that was a great disguise, it totally would have fooled me.

16:00 this movie is classed as "cyberpunk" on Wiki... I wonder how long that term has been around??

Oh wow...

Quote:The word cyberpunk was coined by writer Bruce Bethke, who wrote a story with that title in 1982.

Way older than I would have figured. Strange that I never remember hearing the word before the late 2010s.

18:38 this Denis Akiyama guy is crazy mega hot.

20:42 this chick with the bitchin' hairdo and the weird makeup is Tracy Tweed... she's a Newfie.

24:48 hey, that's Ice-T!

26:46 Keanu was 31 in this movie... just a young whippersnapper.

27:18 why did sci-fi films in the '90s apparently think weird opera singing would be popular in the future?? Lmfao.

27:56 this '90s babe is mega fucking hot... apparently her name is Dina Meyer and she's still smoking fucking hot to this day, what the eff.

31:10 Shinji is definitely my favorite, even though he's a bad guy. There's just something about him.

33:09 "Loteks" ohhh I get it... low tech. I like that! I'm all about lo-fi.

38:40 I think they tried to keep the music a little more '80s in this movie on purpose... almost like the concept of retrowave.

39:20 the graphics are honestly pretty good. I'm impressed with how well this movie has stood the test of time.

42:40 yo, I think it's your fricken mom, bro.

43:50 these video calls are a trip.

46:46 yeeeeah, I dunno if I'd be trusting this wigged out chick talkin' about some dude named Spider?!

48:22 nail on the head... absolute 100% fucking truth right there. That part of the movie would make a great clip to proliferate about what's going on in the world today.

1:02:16 "And screw the physical disability, you know what I'm sayin'?" Roflmfaololol, I love his lisp.

1:02:50 I mean... it's not the greatest movie ever, but it's pretty decent. It's hard to believe The Matrix came out only 4 years later... it seems like a lot of progress was made in those years. Then again, I guess this movie was going for a sorta 'retrowave' feel. A lot of it may be on purpose. I dunno for sure.

I tell you what's for certain though... Keanu Reeves has been in some of the most important movies ever fucking made.

1:04:00 who the fuck is this hottie in the weird goggles?? He looks familiar.

1:12:46 this is kind of funny, lol.

1:13:28 there was sooo much virtual reality predictive programming in the '90s man... when you see these movies, it just makes the tech seem so old.

It's like this is a simulation and we're all in stasis... we never really get there. It's all the same concepts rehashed over and over, and we're in a dream within a dream. It's all perpetually ever so slightly out of reach.

1:14:30 so Buddy (the goggles hottie) is Coyote Shivers... never heard of him, pretty cool name though. I looked up pics of him and he's definitely fine as heck, but I don't totally recognize him. Kinda strange. Looks like he was in some weird, kinky, super obscure movie in 2003 called Girl in 3D.

1:14:58 he seriously needs a bite guard right now.

1:18:08 oh my God, I forgot about this Shinji hottie. Fuuuhhhhck... *nanarub*

1:26:00 lol, Ice-T is fucking iconic.

1:27:50 sure, the graphics (special effects) are a bit strange... but I can't say they're not good. Do they look dated? Meh... I dunno, I can't even say they do. They just look like a unique artistic style more than anything else. The whole thing really is incredibly well done.

1:28:55 you know, Keanu Reeves is a great looking guy. Super hot. But it's hard to look at him in a sexual way. Like, for me... I really can't look at him in a dirty kinda way. It's like he's a holy man or something. That's not even my opinion of him, that's just the way it makes me feel.

The difference between DeepTomCruise and that Keanu fake is that Miles Fisher has been a Tom Cruise impersonator since way before deep fake was a thing, lol, he's like mega talented.
