So Hasa, as the only person I know who has actually sat through Torque, how do you feel about the director's ability to accurately make the first movie version of NEUROMANCER?
To be honest I was avoiding any judgment on his ability to direct Neuromancer. If the way how Torque felt to me as mocking itself was intentional by Kahn he could very well pull off a decent version of Neuromancer.
And I'm not the only one who saw the entire movie. I did a search to find what was said about it and striv wrote about it when it was new. Linky.
Splitcoil also saw the whole thing and found it funny, even though he considered it to be unintentional.
Halfway through I thought the only moment to enjoy had been Dave Wyndorf punching a biker off the stage.
It was on cable last night.
I'll allow that director's, like anyone in Hollywood, have to take their breaks when they present themselves and those moments are rarely in the time or manner of their choosing.
However, one can usually spot talent in these nascent efforts regardless and Torque didn't have that seeping out of the screen.
That seepage might have been my hopes and dreams, come to it.
I think, this coming week, I should try and put together that adaptation of the book. For shits and giggles if nothing else.
