Andromedia - (1998 movie) image

(on Wikipedia)

A girl is digitized, becoming a valuable commodity for people seeking power and immortality.

This might be interesting for fans of science fiction history, but it's dumb in too many places for me to enjoy it.

If you end up watching this, here are my edited Andromedia subtitles.

It really looks great.

VueScan supports the CanoScan LiDE 120, which I tested it with.

It watermarks what it scans, unless you buy it. It's not worth $50 for something decent, because my scanner cost that. $100 to get OCR cooked-in also isn't worth it.

After the assassination of his father, a new king is crowned for an insular but extraordinary nation, but he does not go unchallenged.

Time travellers recruit an everyman to help save their world.

Crude and un-funny.

Netforce - (1999 movie) poster

Netforce, a United States federal agency, tracks major hacking activities on the internet that point toward major criminal activities.

Definitely a TV-movie. Mediocre, and only moderately interesting. Definitely missing key elements from the also-boring book.
