I, Robot

| 1 Comment | No TrackBacks

Another action film, which takes place in 2035. Gosh, I do hope to be alive to see that far into the future. The film is full of eerie reminders of why it's not too wise to place all of your trust in technology. The film was based on the company U.S. Robot—from the science fiction novel I, Robot by Isaac Asimov.

However, the film modernized the company name , and changed it to US Robotics. Hmm, the name should ring a bell for the computer saavy people. Alas, US Robotics was an industry leader in dialup modems. Yeah, I still remember those relics :) I used to own a 28.8k v.34 Sportster modem. Gotta keep reminding myself that people still use those things ..

Although, the film held my attention and was not to skimpy on special affects, I don't think it was one of Will Smith's better films. Not that he's had all that many, I did prefer Enemy of State.

I gave I, Robot , 6 of 10 stars. Get the torrent.

First post of 2K5. The prodigal son has returned ;) He's amped too. Just finished shoveling six inches of snow like a crazed lunatic. After I completed the task, I let out the blood curdling cry of a Bhantu warrior. Anyway I digress.

Wow, it's been nearly a month since my last entry. I do hope that you have not forgotten about me. I am sure that most of you realize that I enjoy virtually talking with you. So much has happened since I returned from vacation, and started 2K5. Hmm... Where shall I begin ? I was forced to shut down public comments on the blog due to very aggressive comment spammers. I have since restored this feature and upgraded my blog publishing engine software to thwart the efforts of these annoying cowards.
