I thought this was pretty accurate (link)

Any comments?

I liked the movie myself. Course, I knew it wouldn't be about the book, so I guess I wasn't looking for anything more. Plus, I went to the movie to be entertained, I was, that might be why I liked it.

Brutal. Accurate, but brutal... especially the site counter!

But truly... a shameless number of plugs. And although I'm certainly not complaining about seeing Will's ass, it did make for a totally uncomfortable fast-forward moment with my home-school/home church family while -- as far as I could tell -- doing nothing to further the storyline. I imagine it was equally awkward in the theatre, too. Not to mention the little hypocritical moral punchlines to the obnoxious white punk about swearing... nice lesson for the kids, Will: "Do as I say, not as I do" (or is it, "don't do as I say *or* do"?)

Still, it isn't like we turned it off. Like John, I found it entertaining (especially the explosive surfing door scene that Scott mentioned in his review). But I'd have to agree that a second viewing is not likely to happen until those 2004 Converse sneakers really *do* become "vintage".

It's in my top 5 books of all times. What you need to understand is that I, Robot is not a novel. It is an anthology, a collection of short stories with a common theme. The theme dealing with the laws of robotics and the moral issues that ensue.

Yes, but none of those stories involve a robot accused of murder or a wisecracking hero battling his way past legions of eerie, Uncanny-Valley androids to topple a corrupt corporation.

Björk-bots, I call 'em.

Welcome, Enrique. Great link.

Hi Enrique, I see you're a bird trainer. Sounds interesting, what does that involve?

Enrique Padilla | January 31, 2005
Training birds is something I've had to work at for a very long time. It's a trade my father taught me when we lived in Bayamon, Puerto Rico. It involves very heavily padded equipment (gloves for example) and a lot of patients.

You mean you've been hospitalized?!! ;DDD
