saw it, decent movie.
never read the book, but it sure didn't seem like a movie based on a literary classic.
smith's humor didn't seem as natural as other movies.
the chick co-star wasn't convincing.
heck the best performance was by, 'sonny' the robot.

<sigh>

Isaac Asimov is probably the most renowned space science fiction author in history.

http://www.asimovonline.com/oldsite/asimov_catalogue.html

pretty modest resume there, huh? 4 maybe 500 books in total, not counting short stories, critiques and editing.

He died in 92 or 93 (ish) of AIDS, from blood during heart surgury in the 80's

he's essectially a legend. I, Robot was one of his first books. he wrote tons of stuff struggling with consciousness and robots, and Joh Searle type philosophy.

I've been meaning to read that book for a while now but now that the movie is out I'm gonna go watch it and read the book later.

Let's just say that the premise for the Matrix came from what he wrote about looooong before.

Asimov (and H.G. Wells and a few others) = everything sci-fi today

You're kidding, right? You had heard of Isaac Asimov, before, right?:confused1
Just giving you a hard time, and setting you up for the inevitable age comment.:)

I enjoyed his original Foundation series of books, as well as the Empire stuff that I've read.
