Exactly. It's like listening to a blues album. Are you going to complain
because it's not "original" or you *knew* they were going to play in the key
of E or use a pentatonic scale? Come on, much of what makes a good movie
good is the *how* they get the story across. Who *didn't* think Keanu would
be the hero and "save" the world? I knew the movie would be hip cool cyber
story. But, could they hopefully, finally do it right? I mean, no shitty
"Johnny Mnemonic", no scratch the surface "Lawnmower Man", but actually get
a movie made that a Gibson/Williams fan could rave about? About fucking
