    "This movie is a classic and one everyone should see. Probably the best work of the Wachowski Brothers and a classic movie for Keanu Reeves. Basically a story of an ordinary man who learns of his extraordinary fate and how he manages to overcome it all. A sci-fi story filled with futuristic and insane settings and crazy action. This first movie really is a great movie on its own and again, one everyone should see at some point."

    "It doesn't get any better than Metropolis. The acting is superb. You see and feel every emotion, despite being a silent film. It's a classic that remains relevant today. "

    "Before the recent remake of Total Recall, we had the original, one of a kind, classic Total Recall starring Arnold Schwarzeneggar and prime Sharon Stone. This movie was a true classic with all it's wonderful one liners and moments and weirdly introduced characters. I watched this as a teen and it's been in my DVD collection, constantly played several times annually. What makes this movie so cool is that it somewhat predicted some of the events that were going to occur with the technology presented in there at the time. All I can say is that if you're an Arnold fan, or trying to talk someone into watching a fun thrilling classic, Total Recall is the way to go."

    "The best movie that predicted the future is Back to the Future directed by Robert Zemeckis. This sci-fi classic starring Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd had the uncanny ability to forsee the rise of a rich , overbearing, loud-mouth that owned casinos and ran a corrupt town. "

    "My boyfriend is a huge Harrison Ford fan and really into Sci-Fi and movies about the future so naturally I wanted to surprise him with a movie night. Oddly enough, he had never seen the original Blade Runner and I thought this would be a good choice. He LOVED this movie (even better than the remake) and I went ahead and purchased it after I rented it and we've watched it three times already. Oldie but a classic. Great buy!"
