This is a really underrated movie… nice review! I also really like erase/rewind by the Cardigans over the end credits…

Muad'dib said:

BTW, has anyone read “Simulacron-3″? I’d love to, but I just can’t find a copy of it anywhere…out of print everywhere I look

SFAM said:

Hi Tim, thanks for the nice comments, and welcome to cyberpunkreview :)

And yeah, Muad’dib, I’d like to read Simulacron-3 as well. There’s a bunch of used books dealers at Balticon (balticon.org), a yearly scifi convention that comes to this area. I’ll dig around there.

Great movie. I saw this movie in 2001 and i really liked the story.

SFAM said:

Agreed - the way the mystery is revealed is well done. 13th Floor is definitely worth a watch.

The original 1964 novel SIMULACRON 3 is available for purchase in ebook format from:

www.rosettabooks.com/pages/title_15.html

It was originally filmed as a two-part TV miniseries by German director Rainer Werner Fassbinder in 1973.

SFAM said:

Awesome! Thanks for the posting Dr. Smile. You wouldn’t happen to have seen the TV miniseries, did you? If so, how was it?

Muad'Dib said:

I have it on VHS - it’s called “Welt am Draht” (World on a wire) and runs 3 1/2 hours. I wish I could find the novel somehwere, it’s a book that I’ve been searching for, for more than 5 years now…
(Unfortunately I have my problems with ebooks - I just can’t read an entire novel on the monitor. )
I can’t make any comparisons but the movie is great. I’m really not a fan of Fassbinder but this adaptation was excellent although I obviously can’t be certain how faithful it was to the book. Good acting, good atmosphere and a good story well known to anyone who saw “The Thirteenth Floor”.
Unfortunately it is almost impossible to get a hold of, especially outside Germany. There are some DVD Bootlegs out there, but nothing official yet, but if you are somehow able to get it, I highly recommend it.

SFAM said:

DVD Bootleg it is then! I’ll start looking for it.

I don’t get why so many critics hate it on rotten tomatoes.

A truly underrated film, unfairly beset by comparisons to THE MATRIX. It is not a rip-off of that film (for the simple fact that the novel it was based on was written in the 1960s!!), but a solid film that stands on its own.

I actually bought an e-book copy of SIMULACRON 3 and started reading it. Very good book; granted, while a lot of the tech described inside is now pretty much obsolete, there are a few things that are suprisingly spot on, including the overabundance on pollsters and telemarketers (I kid you not!).

Daniel F. Galouye is, sadly, a forgotten SF writer. I’ve seen a couple of his books in used bookstores but SIMULACRON 3 was the first I’ve read.

I just saw this movie today. It was excellent. Am I the only one who noticed that Hall’s apartment was strikingly similar to Deckard’s from [i]Blade Runner[/i]? They even used the exact same tile pattern.

sesostris said:

Yes a very lovely movie, the real world creates virtual worlds for them to get lost in, even though they live right on the beach in perfect land. On man decides to become a criminal and instead of being supportive, his wifey knocks boots with his avatar in the hours he isnt playing the game.

The blonde guy, his acting sux, i dont know what style of acting he is going for but he has annoying nailed.

The hall guy just seemed clueless and dull, and mol was soul free as well. if it werent for the cop this dvd would make a lovely coaster.

this movie would have totally rocked had it been spoken in farsi or something and had subtitles then we could have enjoyed it more, and the black room, useless green lights [hint hint] is getting very old.

This movie did not intend to be good, its just part of predictive programming, and the creation of purpose built humans, digital slavery

*kiss kiss*

I’m glad I’m not the only one who noticed the similarity to Deckard’s apartment. I just watched The Thirteenth Floor today and as soon as they got to Hall’s apartment I literally said out loud “What is this? Blade Runner?” All they would have to do is dim the lights and throw some junk about and it would be nearly identical. Maybe it’s a little homage? Who knows. Cool flick in any case.

Scott said:

I believe Hall’s apartment is homage to BR … The music also alludes to Vangelis’ BR soundtrack … not so close as to be insulting though. I though it to be a pretty cool flick overall.

Great movie overall. I loved how the plot unfolded, in a very clever way.
I can understand statements about the quality of the acting but I guess you have to take into consideration the complexity of the roles for each actor … ;)

Loosely speakin, it is a good sifi movie and worth watching.
Are we real?
This always is an eternal philosiphical problem.
This movie gives a hypothesis.

I still have yet to see this movie. I really wanted to see it when it first came out, but its release was too close to the Matrix so I was kinda afraid of sitting through a ripoff. But still should of watched it none the less.

Kurgan said:

Yes, it was good. Also, on German DVD ending song instead of Cardigans ”Erase/Rewind” was replaced by HIM ”Join Me In Death.” Video of it with movie clips was very nice.
