HEY RICH-ASS DOG OWNERS:Are you at the office 23 hours a day in a coke-fueled effort to squeeze every last penny out of your 20s and 30s?
Are you going out of town with your post-divorce trophy-girlfriend to visit your slave ship collection in the Barbados?
Do you work for a corporation that received TARP money?
I AM YOUR DOG-WALKER.
Woah, just WOAH 90s cyberpunk movies. Thank you Netflix, for recommending this gem to me. This movie/the original book was probably designed to cause people like me to stop and reevaluate our fantasies about cyber enhancement. What they need to do to have a shot at this is be as vague as possible with all descriptions of technology though so people don’t confuse their “cautionary tale” for a comedy. I don’t know what’s better: The premise of a brain implant designed to hold 80 Mb of data, that it maxes out when silly Keanu uploads 320 Mb causing “synaptic seepage,” Henry Rollins playing a neurosurgeon (???), or that the #1 hacker in the movie is a dolphin.
Oh, actually, it’s this scene:
That’s also what I think about when I’m alone, Keanu. Every minute.
