See I got the concept about the games being pods that jack into the spine, but it took about 1/2 an hour for them to get to that. The first wierd thing in the movie was a all organic weapon that fired human teeth, purpose was so that it could get beyond detectors meant to screen for ordinary weapons.

It's like one long acid trip. [:D] It's a pretty good movie too.

I could sorta see where it was going after about 1/2 way through the movie, definitely even predicted the ending once it rolled around to finally getting there. The movie is DEFINITELY WIERD!! It's a decent candidate for a Twightlight Zone episode if it was still on air these days.

His stuff just about as weird as David Lynch's. Eraserhead still gets to me when I watch it.

Just goes to show that one man's trash is another (wo)man's treasure. I've seen Naked Lunch, The Fly (which was actually pretty good if totally disgusting), Scanners (decent but hardcore grade B), and Existenz (which just sucked) and have a generally low opinion of Cronenberg's work. I think he tries a little too hard to create a film noir/sci-fi feel that normally doesn't work. The plus side is that he was/is directly responsible for the creation of a new genre of movies. The sci-fi/film noir genre is best represented by Dark City (which has the lucious Jennifer Connelly) and City of the Lost Children (really weird, but visually very very cool).

Dark City was an ok movie. City of the Lost Children (Ron Pearlman was in that) was very weird, but then again french movies usually are.

I loved Naked Lunch. I'm going to have to find it in DVD.

Cronenberg is way more watchable than David Lynch. Naked Lunch is much weirder than Existenz. Does anyone know what Mulholland Drive was about? Lost Highway? Those movies were weird and confusing for the sake of being weird and confusing.
