A hacker screws around with a game company's server, causing an artificial intelligence to stir up the military.

Both quaint and awesome. It doesn't hold up over time, so it does have to be understood in the context of it's era. Still recommended if you're old enough to do so.

A small research vessel is knocked down by a meteor shower, triggering a panicked military response and causing hundreds of civilian casualties.

An endearing and distracting movie. Recommended, even though the dubbing is exaggerated and loud.

A man working for the police is tasked to hunt down murderous artificial humans.

Moody and mostly-slow, relying heavily on the setting. It's good, and not just "good for it's time". It has a spectacular tone and style to it; definitely recommended.
