    Surely this is mostly inspired 'Transmission' by Hari Kunzru.

    I read the comments to articles just to see what comment amanfromMars will leave. As for this movie and some dinks thinking it will some how "glamorize" virus writing. Well guys that presumes that A: the film will actually get released or go straight to DVD and be instantly put in the discount bin for being so bad and thus forgotten about. Or B: People interested in writing viruses but have been sitting on the fence will be inspired by this film to go all the way. I highly doubt B is the case since if the actors in the movie can't provide any kind of coherent plot summary then the chances of it being anything but pure shit are some where between slim and none.

    Coat please, I need to pop out for a quick beer at lunch and it's cold outside.

    What about good movies, then?

    I'm still waiting for a 20-hour celluloidization of Neil Stephenson's Cryptonomicon. It contains Mad Haxx and parts of it play in Manila around 2000.

    Also with: Libertarianism, the Birth of the Internet, Belief in America, WWII scenes, Nazis, Special Operations, Japanese Engineering, Mad Lawyers, Hot Sexxor, Alan Turing and lots of comedy.

    Ah well, back to my backup which won't work.

    oh noes

    I know the japanese are inventive, quirky sometimes with their concepts but this is really pushing it X_X

    Paris Hilton. Because the love bug film's fail factor will be 10,0000 times greater then that of 'The Hottie and the Nottie'
