Otherlife

The protagonist is convinced that experiences and memory are merely the results of brain chemistry.
She then develops a drug that enables software-defined experiences in an attempt to save his brother. Basically nanotech robots that deliver chemicals to different regions in the brain.

I enjoyed the way she learned of her prejudice. Inspiring for the development of willpower.
Also, the movie reminded me of some of my dreams as well as attempts at healing people.

I liked the movie conceptually, but I was disappointed by the focus on darkness I guess. Also, most movies about lucid dreaming/OBEs unfortunately avoid the creative freedom & physics bending aspects. Dreamscape, does an okay job, but barely. I guess we still have The Matrix:)

Indeed. I guess on average people might find the concepts too far out there.

Hmm .. need to watch Dreamscape, I guess :)

It's from the 80s, but still one of the best psi movies ever made. Watch it as a double feature with The Fury, & you're all set:)

Dreamscape was very good. Would be awesome if the concept were explored a lot more in the movies.

The Fury .. maybe on par with Akira. Very well made. Quite creepy, and has a bunch of hidden references and hidden symbolism.

Yeah, I found the approach to psi in both movies to be more true to life than we usually get in modern films. I wish they were made like this today as well:)

This is on Netflix. I really enjoyed it even though it was only available with English subtitles. Some people don't like that but it doesn't really detract too much though the pace of the movie sometimes makes reading them difficult.

I really enjoyed Psychokinesis, too. I actually always prefer subtitles if I can hear the voices of the original actors:)

I prefer to watch anime with subtitles because of being able to hear the original talent. This movie had so much going on at times I couldnt keep up with the subtitles and I consider myself pretty good at reading them.

Love Psychokinesis, especially the fact that the main character is intelligent as well.

He did not merely have awesome skills but he also saw how futile the battle would be.

 

Watched the first episode of Impulse and it looks a bit more immature.

Edit: Loved the 7th and 8th episodes, though.

Edit: Edit: My prejudice was totally unjustified. Impulse is awesome. It just takes time to develop.
