HIDDEN GEMS III

GATTACA (1997)
Starring:  Ethan Hawke, Uma Thurman (when they were boning), Jude Law, and for some odd reason, Ernest Borgnine
Written and Directed By:  Andrew Niccol
Running time:  106 minutes

Why?:  Because it has one of the best, most soothing soundtracks of all time.  Seriously, click on that link, that's why it's in blue, dumbass.  It fucking rocks.

It's smart science fiction, with almost zero special effects.  It is tense, moody, and doesn't play dumb to the audience.  It is grounded in reality - I can totally see all of it happening in the near future.  And it has Jude Law back when he was badass.  You know, back before The Holiday?

For those of you who think Science Fiction is only for the asthmatic fat kid sitting at home on a Saturday night wearing a Battlestar Galactica t-shirt and tugging his junk to a poster of Princess Leia in her gold bikini, go out and rent, nay BUY this movie.  You will be surprised.

Check the trailer:
