When Timms is upbraiding Angelo for being naive, he says that money has been dirty "...since the Catholic Church got involved in banking 300 years ago." But in fact, the Knights Templar (an arm of the Catholic Church) first began banking in 1129 A.D. Timms was off by 600 years. See more »
Dr. Lawrence Angelo:
This is all so new.
It's not new. I realized that nothing we've been doing is new. We haven't been tapping into new areas of the brain - we've just been awakening the most ancient. This technology is simply a route to powers that conjurers and alchemists used centuries ago. The human race lost that knowledge and now I'm reclaiming it through virtual reality.

Not an absolute masterpiece, but well worth the rental
I got 'The Lawnmower Man' as part of one of those 'Buy a pizza and get a free movie' deals, and I put off watching it. And put it off more. And more, until finally I had nothing else to do, so I popped it in the VCR and sat back. Two and half hours later (It was the director's cut- don't see the normal version as it is not nearly as good) it instantly became one of my favorite movies, so I rewound it and watched it again.
To date I have seen it four of five times, as it has problems, it's not very fast paced, but is terribly engaging and Fahey is superb in the lead. The writing isn't great, but is passable, and the computer effects, though far from the center of the story, are excellent.
If you haven't seen it yet, or have only seen the normal version, it is well worth the rental, or even purchase.
