I’ve been a long-time follower of this amazing blog, “Sci-Fi Interfaces“. Its author, Chris, is a very humble guy…
“Scifiinterfaces analyzes the interfaces seen in movies and television show for fun and erudition. Its main author and curator and all around guy is me, Chris Noessel.”
…but in fact he does a very detailed and lentghy analysis of all type of sci-fi interfaces, from “TRON” and “Oblivion” (about 30 interfaces analyzed) to “Dr. Strange” and “Johny Mnemonic“. Together with Nathan Shedroff, Chris published a 348-page book “Make It So: Interaction Design Lessons from Science Fiction”.
Here is one of my favourite posts by Chris about “Johny Mnemonic” (by the way, Keanu Reeves is doing “Replicas”, his new sci-fi movie): Cyberspace: Bulletin Board.
So, “Replicas”… Here’s a shot from it with Keanu wearing a helmet that makes me think of the “Johny Mnemonic”:
I must sadly admit I paused the trailer at the same moment ss it was written “from the producers of ‘Passengers‘ and ‘Transformers‘.” That is a bad sign. Really bad. How someone even dares to use it to attract audience? It’s not 2007 now. I cannot express how much I hated that movie even though it had some moments (actually I hated both, but at least Transformers never tried to pretend something it isn’t). The trailer of “Replicas” doesn’t look really good. For now, it looks exactly like a film influenced by the producers of “Passengers”, ha ha.
And to end this post on a positive note, two ultracool GIFs from “Johny Mnemonic”, a movie with weird as never Dolph Lundgren and a cyborg dolphin.
