The ridiculous title should have been enough to keep me at bay but noooo I had to watch this on cable. The story is about a computer programmer genius named Milo who graduates and moves on up quickly when offered a job at NURV (the lead character loosely based upon Bill Gates). The company has been working on project Synapse and they need Milo to help them meet their launch so he agrees and takes the job. Of course from there he learns that the company isn't exactly what he thought and he learns not to trust certain people. It's a bare bones thriller that offers absolutely no thrills, just dull deception.

Availability:  On DVD


  1. Hi, nice blog and nice reviews. Could I suggest you something? It would be nice that you tagged the post of the movie with your rate (i.e. 3/5, 2/5, etc), so we can see a column to select the best ones, the second best, etc. Anyway, thank you for your effort.

  2. Thanks, I think that is a good suggestion and I will look into do this in the near future!

  3. Hi Goregirl! I must admit I've followed your reviews on RYM for some time now. It's rare that I find someone as clearly obsessed with horror movies as I am. I so wish I had the time to watch as many as you have, but these days I tend to stick to only the "good" ones.

    But then you and I both know that there is most certainly such a thing as "so bad it's good"! :) I'd be really interested to know if you have a top 10 or top 20 list somewhere. It always makes for good discussion.

    I'll be sure to drop in here often to see what you've been up to.
