DID YOU KNOW?

Did you know that the cyberpunk-themed cult classic Blade Runner was pretty much unsuccessful during its first theatrical release? The term "cyberpunk" gained popularity thanks to Blade Runner and William Gibson's sci-fi novel named Neuromancer. In spite of this, the term actually originated from Bruce Bethke, who in the process made two lists of words that best describe 1) technology and 2) troublemakers. Two words were then chosen and combined into a single word, thus giving birth to the word "cyberpunk". This word was then adapted into modern writing, given more attention due to the fact that it was used in a Washington Post article.

More often than not, cyberpunk books, novels, and movies are primarily focused on the dark, gritty, and grim features of the dystopian society it's set in, giving highlights to the amount of power that corporations hold, as well as the disparity between the rich and poor. The most common cyberpunk aesthetics that viewers might see in this subgenre of science fiction are the overabundance of neon lights, cybernetic enhancements, futuristic guns, and the protagonist being labeled as a computer hacker, rebel, antihero, or all of the above. The cyberpunk subgenre is also the originator of similar "Punk" genres like steampunk and dieselpunk, to name a few.

    "Anime is not my favorite genre, but my husband does it enjoy it so I have seen my fair share of anime films. This is one of the better anime films and if husband was rating this he would probably give it 5 stars. My husband would say this is a classic anime film and I would agree. The artwork is amazing. What makes the film hard to watch is the English dubbing. It's necessary to understand the film but also jarring compared to the artwork of the film."

    "Any fan of cyberpunk has read or at least knows of Neuromancer's impact on the genre. Gibson's insight into a genre something he essentially created is an interesting look into the concepts behind the magic of the unique brand of sci-fi that defines cyberpunk. Anyone who wants a more philosphical look at the subjects that modern sci-fi and cyberpunk touch upon should watch this documentary."

    "This is an amazing sci fi movie if you are into science fiction. It has a great cast and the special effects are pretty good considering when it was made. I would highly recommend it for those who enjoy science fiction and outer space particularly. Sharon Stone is great and who doesn't like Arnold??"
