... okay, over on Tumblr, fuckyeahcyber-punk just reminded me that Johnny Mnemonic came out just three years after Lawnmower Man.

Johnny Mnemonic is still filed under "relatively new movie" in my head, even though it's TWENTY YEARS OLD NOW. Lawnmower Man (1992, BTW) just ... feels so much older.

Maybe it's just that bad. It's got nothing in common with the Stephen King short story of the same name, of course, and the CGI was embarrassing even by 1992 standards, but the entire structure of the film, the pacing, the conflict ... they all relegate it eternally to the era of renting B-movies on VHS.
