I loved the Matrix, too, but Virtual Nightmare is a totally different type of sci-fi movie. It's the kind with "unknown" actors, average special effects, and little if any bloodshed, that relies primarily on a story that is equal parts technological extrapolation and social satire. It's simple, but smart. But not too smart--it doesn't think it's better than you.
I probably would never have seen it, except I felt like setting my VCR to tape something, and it happened to be in the listings. Even then, I was debating whether I really wanted to waste my time watching a movie I had never heard of, so I happened to check IMDb, and I saw I bunch of people in England liked it, so I watched it, and it was very enjoyable. Thanks England!
