While packing for the weekend this evening, I have been watching a "new" used VHS tape: "WEBMASTER" ("No cyberworld"--emphases mine).

It has everything you could possibly want from a Danish cyberpunk samurai flick dubbed into English. (It's more stylish than iPods and Mitsubishi Eclipses and Starbucks combined.)

So far, my favorite part is the LED-green contacts worn by one of the bit characters. But I also have to admire the way that the hero is constantly hanging upside-down in anti-gravity boots, even while logged in to his online security job via a headset complete with glowing eyepiece-display.

I really have no idea what's going on with the plot, however.

Best narrator statement so far: "I once had a racecar that drove 'round in circles until it died".

Where's Mystery Science Theater 3000 when you need it?

I was just wondering the other day -- what ever happened to Jørgen Kiil? Now I know.
