    "First off, movies based in any right off of Philip K. Dick stories are usually awesome. Besides having that in common, these movies have a lot of solid stylistic parallels. Both are incredibly well made movies, and this one features someone named Michael Ironside, that is just awesome."

    "If you're into dystopic futuristic movies like I am, you'll really enjoy Gattaca. It's visually interesting, with artful photography. The storyline is interesting and the acting is terrific. As a thriller, the film keeps you totally enthralled with the action throughout. This movie is definitely worth your time and involvement."

    "I really miss when Tom Cruise still made good movies. Minority Report is one of my favorites. It's entertaining and gives you something to think about. I doubt time travel will ever happen, but the concept here is unique and interesting. "

    "This is an excellent solution. It deals with a new drug that lets you experience the memories and records stored on discs. It is a slick SciFi movie with some cyberpunk element to it"

    "I was looking for something similar to Blade Runner and stumbled across this movie. Dark City isn't much like Blade Runner when it comes to plot, but I think if you like one you'll like the other. The tone and atmosphere is very similar even though it's not quite cyberpunk. If you like sci-fi noir, I highly recommend it."

    "I'm in love with Blade Runner, so I'm always looking for movies to compare to it. I recently stumbled upon Ghost in the Shell. It's an excellent movie based on the manga by Masamune Shirow. It had me on the edge of my seat and in suspense the entire time. Excellent movie, very close to Blade Runner!"

    "More science fiction than futuristic, The Thirteenth Floor does however raise interesting questions about the use of technology. There are a lot of different elements at work here as The Thirteenth Floor is a murder mystery, a thriller, and a love story all wrapped up in a science fiction film. I rank it up there with The Matrix and Blade Runner."
