Movie News and Trailers - Hollywood Hype

I’d forgotten that!

I’m a fan, I’ve read all his books and stories but… he’s not a scriptwriter.


#7624

His X-Files episodes are truly awful. “First Person Shooter” is probably the worst episode they ever did.


#7625

How about his comics? Were they good?


#7626

Those I haven’t read.

I started reading his unproduced script for ‘Alien 3’ as well, but never finished it.


#7627

Screenplay wasn’t the problem of the movie as I remember it. Problem was with, well, everything else (except the decision to put Takeshi Kitano and Udo Kier in it). It’s not a surprise that it was the director’s first and last movie.

Johnny Mnemonic is very much of it’s time. It would be fun if they mentioned it in the Neuromancer film like the book did.


#7629

I kind of liked it back then because at least it embraced the crazy, but man that was one incredibly cheap-looking and badly-made movie, and that’s regardless of its time. I mean, look at this trailer:

I remember at the time the reason Molly wasn’t in Johnny Mnemonic was because the rights to Neuromancer were with a different production company, so if she showed up in one, she couldn’t be in the other. The situation may have changed in the intervening years, but who knows?


#7631

I guess I never even realized that Dina Meyer wasn’t Molly.


#7632

She’s ‘Jane’


#7633

Ya. I just checked the IMDb and saw that. I’m not great with names. So I had always just assumed she was Molly. I had always wondered why they had left out the modifications.


#7634

It really was one of the problems.


#7635

Welcome to my world :expressionless:


#7636

That’s a genre niche just crying out to be filled.


#7637

Mirrorshades of Passion


#7638

There are many Nicholas Sparks adaptations, cheap to make and very profitable it seems.


#7639

I’m not seeing the cyberpunk elements :expressionless:


#7640

My favourite cyberpunk films are Blazing Saddles and Mary Poppins. I can’t see how that can be argued with.


#7641

Harumph!


#7642

Dolph Lungren too!
