help me LJ one kanobi, you're my only hope...
SO a few months (a year or two?) after The Matrix came out, there was another movie that had a similar... aesthetic? target audience? something.
The poster for it has an assassin type guy wearing white gloves and two pistols. I read a penny-arcade review of it and decided it was worth seeing.
I have literally been trying to remember the name of this movie off and on for YEARS now.
EDIT: Equilibrium. Thanks folks!
? i definitely remember penny arcade's review making it sound worth seeing.
not as good as the matrix, and has one slightly cringe-inducing central conceit, but fun, decent sci-fi action.

I'd say you're right! Thanks!
Because of the Baleathon, I'm sure it's Equilibrium that you're thinking of. It did well in Europe but not so well here. It's a pretty good movie, worth checking out. If only because, well, Christian Bale and Taye Diggs are beautiful people.
yar, seems to be the one. ^_^
Good memory! And thanks!
We have Equilibrium at home, you're welcome to borrow it. It's one of my favorites :) Very distopian. =)Also, the Gun Fu is AWESOME.
sweet! I'll take it off my netflix queue. ;-)
Please do! I'll drop it by your place at some time in the near future.
hah, yeah. Have a copy of that actually, trippy movie. ^_^
That movie is SO. Wacked. Yeah. Wow.
ideally a double feature with "videodrome."
