Pardon me if I'm late in posting this and it has already been mentioned, but
Im answering Emails just now getting to read them LOL

Has anybody mentioned the movie "The Island"
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0399201/ ? I thought this was an excellent if
flashy vision of a not so perfect advanced society, kinda scary that is
could be just that feasible!

How about these titles involving the use of advanced VR:
Lawnmower Man http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0104692/
Existenz http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0120907/
The Cell  http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0209958/

Dreamscape http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0087175/
Looker http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0082677/

Renegade robots:
Runaway http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0088024/
Chopping Mall (don’t laugh, it could happen in an overly automated society!)
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0090837/  (ok yea that’s tacky :)  ) 
Deadly Friend (ok but seriously, chips implanted into the brain)
The Iron Giant (love it) http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0129167/

The Fifth Element http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0119116/
Dark City http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0118929/

Ah, yes ... I remember that well!  The tagline for "The Forbin Project" 
could have been the same one they used for "Seconds" (a movie I saw as a 
teenager in 1966, which gave a slight boost to my perspective forevermore, 
as well as a new word to my vocabulary, i.e., "reborns"):

"What Are Seconds?... The Answer May Be Too Terrifying For Words!"  (Olga's 
note:  Oh, yeah?  Well, those people obviously never heard of "Second 

more: "What if someone offered you the chance to begin again, with a new 
life that was organized to be exactly what you wanted it to be? That's what 
the organization offers some wealthy people..." (Olga's note:  Ha! Ha! Those

stinkin' greedy wealthy people who live dangerously and just can't seem to 
heed the moral lessons imbued in fairy tales such as The Tale of the 
Fisherman ...):
