I mean, if that's not the Shadowrun game you play in, I don't think you're doing it right.

I was ready to agree with you, until I discovered that you had not linked to Versus.

"It is regarded by enthusiasts of the genre as 'the best and, frankly, only film which manages to mix swords, guns, gangsters, zombies, zombies with guns and swords, zombie gangsters with guns and swords, god-like super-beings, martial arts, assassins, police officers and combinations of all the above into one film set entirely in a forest on a timeline that spans millennia."

Ha!

I need to see that too.

That... Wow. That's the worst-looking piece of shit since Very Bad Things, which suspiciously shares pretty much the same cast. I mean, dude, it's got Ben fucking Affleck in it.

Bah I'm looking foward to this, the video is the closest thing to a decent trailer they have so far.

Gene Generation has hackers, genetic engineering, seedy fixers, and sassy ladies. Now if YOUR last session wasn't like this then you are aren't even close to doing it right! :grinbig:

I keep expecting C. Thomas Howell and "Rowdy" Roddy Piper to show up in the video. I won't ruin the surprise and specify which one is inexplicably dragging a cross.

well since everyone has a different idea on what a good shadowrun style of movie is out now or going to come out...how about everyone give their own ideas. I got a few you guys can debate and try not to include any personal prejudice to actors/actresses.

I personally did not like versus, but hey i loved the concept, just not the delivery. I do want to see smoking aces. I do have no rule to declare is that Blade Runner not to be put in here because I think everyone can agree that is what started it all and a pretty good movie anyways. alright here we go:

Renaissnce - Futuristic Setting and great amimation and cast, it does not have to do with anything relating to a shadowrun, but it has corps and such.

Johnny Nemonic - it reminds me of the D&D movie that came out. A good idea that just didnt get executed the best way, but I would rather watch that than the D&D movie.

Heat - The shadowrunner team at its core and WHERE IS THE VAN?! THE VAN IS SUPPOSE TO BE HERE!!

It is pretty late at night, but what other good shadowrunner movie can we debate about...

Johnny Mnemonic is more Cyberpunk than Shadowrun; there is no magic in Johnny Mnemonic. Johnny Mnemonic was written by William Gibson, the father of the cyberpunk genre. "I want room service!"

There are a lot of cyberpunk movies. The trick is to find a movie with the magic of Shadowrun.

Avalon is well worth a look. It's subtitles unless you understand polish, but a bloody brilliant matrix-heavy setting.

I'm a fan of Serenity and the Firefly series, and I think that it has a lot of common elements with SR. Although no out & out magic, it does have a psychic, an HMHVV type of thing going on, and a good mix of high-tech and primitive living. Most importantly to me, it has a group of outcasts who make a living by committing crimes while trying to stay a step ahead of monolithic oppressive powers that be.

I'll try to check out all of these great suggestions, though.

Has it been a month already since the last time DS had this exact fucking discussion?

To be fair, Damon is a much better actor than Ass Face.

I wouldn't recommend Avalon in a Shadowrun context. It's more visual poetry than anything else (such as a thrilling movie). The irony of Avalon is that it's perhaps a beautiful (spectacular visuals) but boring film. But Shadowrun? Eh..I'd sooner say Firefly was Shadowrun in space.

Just to say it, Firefly was awesome. Such a shame it got cancelled this early.

And I too always believed it had that shadowrunny outlook (not the background, of course).
