Happy Canada Day! Or, as we call it here in the U. S. and A. - Sunday.
Fans of the 1995 movie Hacker
and fans of the SF subgenre steampunk
will get a kick out of this movie parody Clockers
- IN A WORLD not quite like our own, where the industrial revolution was triggered not by steam, but by springs...
Where the works of the world are hidden in tunnels and towers, from all but the most determined and reckless...
Where some of the birds have cogs for eyes...
Where clockwork construction is depicted just about as realistically as computers in Hollywood movies...
... young Daedelus Murphy and his ragtag band of friends and rivals are about to learn that that curiosity can be the most dangerous crime of all.
