Review in a Nutshell: A true rarity, Alita: Battle Angel is an anime-to-live-action adaptation that managed to navigate a decades-long “development hell” while still remaining faithful to the spirit of the source material. It’s a great little science fiction / action film for a multitude of reasons.

Review in a Nutshell: A straight-to-video cyberpunk science fiction mash-up of Blade Runner, Snatcher, and The Terminator, Nemesis (1992) makes up for its derivative story with incredible stunt-work, excellent practical special effects, and ludicrous gun-play. It’s a tremendously enjoyable little film.

Review in a Nutshell: Low budget but groundbreaking, 20 Minutes into the Future is one of the few films that really deserves the term ‘cyberpunk’. It has a droll, British sense of humor and great production design, and I highly recommend it to anyone that can manage to track it down.

Review in a Nutshell: Lawnmower Man 2, aside from being a cultural artifact of early `90s science fiction film, is a hilariously inept chunk of pseudo-cyberpunk cinema that makes for a rollicking fun watch.
Review in a Nutshell:Johnny Mnemonic is a poor adaptation with a surprisingly high number of hilarious things going on it. It’s proof positive that some authors should not be allowed to adapt their own work.
