Well, 10 years ago, the situation was quite different for Affleck as he showed up in a string of huge flops and this movie was one of them. With this in mind, I wasn’t expecting much from this flick but I still wanted to give it a ... read more

Description: Based on a short story by Philip K. Dick. Ben Affleck stars as Michael Jennings, a brilliant computer engineer hired by high-tech corporations for specialized top-secret projects.

The future kind of sucks. (358 movies items)

"Reason for the future sucking: Ben Affleck's character has created a machine that can predict the future! Obviously, bad guys want it so they can do EVIL things with it. Year it takes place: The near future"

2016: Films I've Watched in June (14 movies items)

"First watched 6/14/2016 Thoughts: Interesting ideas but the tone seems to jump to often and by the end the film feels as though it overstayed it's welcome by some 30 to 40 minutes. But, harmless enough and does have a few elements going for it."
