    Please help me put a name to this film,

    Its a sci-fi

    Its basically about a corporation that brainwashes employees. The main character, a man, meets a mysterious Asian woman at a bar, he always drinks a scotch on the rocks, and talks to her. There are big assembly things, they serve drugged water at them she puts something in his water that lets him see the brain washing videos and knows about it. He then gets to move to a special town the company has created.

    These are the things that I know for certain I also vaguely remember him being part of an overall plan, and a rocket going off at the end, though I may be mixing this up with Gattaca.

    Thanks for any help, this has been bothering me for ages.

    I believe that could be Cypher, also known as Brainstorm.

    I can't remember what film this is in... a guy keeps a glass rod between his teeth to keep him on an even keel and in one scene something happens that means he crunches it because of something.

        Not sure, did the opening start with a shot of palm trees in front of the sea? I think the film was about black kids although again I am not sure, I am remembering a wee bit more now though

          No... Gone in 60 Seconds is not it

          Edit: I think it may be The Underclassman, will find out soon

          I saw an amazing film where there's this guy who kills his dad for a sword and then runs away only he can't draw the sword because he's not powerful enough. He meets a wizard on the trail and they travel together and he beats up some slavers that ride bulls like horses and then they get to a farm run by a woman the wizard fancies. The woman lives with a girl that the guy saved from the slavers and she's all aggressive to the guy but when the wizard and woman are kidnapped by this creepy wizard who hires the slavers they go and rescue them. The creepy wizard kills the girl and then the guy tries to kill him because he's finally managed to draw the sword but then the girl comes back from the dead because it turns out that she's a dragon and then they kill the creepy wizard. The guy still fancies the dragon and the dragon forgives the guy for killing his dad and then they fly off together.

          I know this sounds really trippy but I swear I saw this film and I just can't remember what it's called.

          I just remembered a film about a virus outbreak, initially people just started to dies randomly, then they found out it was tested on soldiers during desert storm(?), then they found out it was terriosts spreading teh virus trying to do a Jihad...then finally it was revealed it was a pharmecutical company trying to make large amount of money by selling the antidote......


          I also remember the prsident in this movie is a woman...

          The central character's wife/girlfriend who is also a scientist, gets killed about half way by a terriost...

          if anyone can tell me the name of the film it will be greatly appreciated....
