In a scene between Mace (Angela Bassett) and Lenny (Ralph Fiennes), Mace says "...Right Here Right Now." This is exactly where 'Norman 'Fatboy Slim' Cook' obtained the sample from that is heard in his single "Right Here Right Now". See more »

"Strange Days" literally has something for everyone. Science fiction, violence, peace, romance, comedy, tragedy, action, you name it -- it's in this film, and it's done with class and intelligence. I agree that this one is destined to become a cult classic. However, be prepared for one of the edgiest, most violent and emotionally exhausting films you've ever seen (the first three minutes of the film make it very clear what you can expect from the rest). There are at least five climactic scenes toward the end, which must break some kind of record. After the movie's over, you may feel like you've just been cooked in a vat of boiling oil... but luckily, you'll be perfectly well-done, not burned to a crisp. 10/10.
