Best Virtual Reality Movies

A technologically stunning movie that furthers the genre and features crowd-pleasing performances to go with the frequent scenes of gunplay and violence. A must-see among genre fans, especially guys in their teens and 20s, for whom the script's pretentious mumbo-jumbo of undergraduate mythology, religious mysticism and technobabble could even be a plus rather than a dramatic liability.
For most people, TRON's importance is as a historical footnote. It's the Model T of our CGI age. But the film's fans are passionate ones. A dazzling movie from Walt Disney in which computers have been used to make themselves romantic and glamorous. Here's a technological sound-and-light show that is sensational and brainy, stylish, and fun.
The Matrix Reloaded
In the face of almost unbearable expectations, the Wachowski brothers deliver a sequel that soars to places only hinted at in the origina. Though introducing some new ideas and characters, Matrix Reloaded is not as exciting as the 1999 original, suffering from problems that often inflict middle chapters of trilogies. You don't have to buy into the geeky mythmaking in The Matrix Reloaded in order to enjoy its kinetic pleasures.
ENTER THE VOID
As chowderheaded as some of its underlying pretensions are, the movie's still an astonishing work of cinema, alternately brilliant and disgusting, naïve and inspired, tedious and sublime. Enter The Void is authentically meditative and beautifully shot, making it an unforgettable film. Broken down to its base elements, it's a detective-ghost story, not unlike M. Night Shyamalan's The Sixth Sense (1999), albeit one driven by some dazzling filmmaking bravado.
As with the original Fantasia, the new film is a mixture of artistically respectable and mediocre moments, which for overall ambition and range, has no parallel in the world of contemporary animation. It provides some fine artists the chance to stretch and frolic, even as it reminds today's audiences of animation's limitless borders. Although magnificent and filled with imagination, Fantasia 2000 doesn't hold up as being particularly ground-breaking or innovative.
