Review: Virtual Revolution (2014) By PK

Rating: Overview: Film Directed by Guy-Roger Duvert, it develops in a near future, and depicts how mankind could be if they have the possibility to stay connected on a network of virtual realities indistinguishable from reality, and where they could have normal relationships with other users just like real life.

Review: Dark City (By: SFAM)

Rating: Overview: Dark City was another one of those movies I was on the fence concerning whether it was cyberpunk or not. Yes, it has the visuals in spades, but what about the rest? After watching it again, I decided the answer was an emphatic Yes. Although we don’t really have computers or cyborgs, we […]

Rating: Fragile Machine – a Cyberpunk Operetta: If there was ever such a thing as a cyberpunk operetta, Fragile Machine is it. Fragile Machine is an indie anime film short created by a very small organization of talented artists called Aoineko. Fragile Machine’s narrative is largely told through haunting Chinese and English vocals set to […]

Review: Hellevator: The Bottled Fools (By: SFAM)

Rating: Overview: One thing I love about Indie movies is the opportunity for complete originality. Indie director Hiroki Yamaguchi delivers a strange, but very well made micro-budget movie that is truly unique. From viewing the extras, virtually every part of the set was designed by searching through junkyards for throw-offs. Similar to the Cube, Hellevator: […]
