    Iam Legend

    talk about the "Iam Legend" movie here.
    I watched the movie the first day it was out in theatres and It was one of the best movies I've saw. Sad at some parts..but

    Don't worry...about a thing..cuz every little thing..is gonna be all right. (people who have seen the movie will know what that means.): http://youtube.com/watch?v=rnDrbagYm24

    I absoloutly loved the movie and the song on it. That was sad movie at parts.

    That movie looks sick. It reminds me of an old Vincent Price movie. With Will Smith, it's gotta be good.

    Good call!

    In fact, The Last Man on Earth (with Vincent Price) was the first movie adaptaion of the I Am Legend novel by Matheson.

    Followed by Omega Man, then the current flick.

    I havent' seen it yet, though I read (what I thought was the last version of) the screenplay.

    I generally try to avoid comparisons to the original source material/book as I think most people (me included) accept the book[s] will be better - if no other reason than time. 2 hours vs. 600 pages is tricky.

    If it's done RIGHT however, I never mind updating the period, the technology, the characters, compressing timelines, skipping over peripheral plot elements and characters, etc. For example, people keep referring to the creatures as "zombies" - they should be something else, but it still kind of works.

    What does bother me is when the core theme is lost in a novel that was written to deliver a single specific message. The title of the book/movie, the single moment that it derives from, the "it is us" concept - I guess I'll hold off till I see it (though we didn't get it in IMAX, still I might have to see it at the theater).

    Was much better than I expected. I really liked how the background did a lot of story telling. The way the flash backs would tell his past piece by piece was also very well done. There wasn't a long drag in explaining what happened, so kept the movie interesting. Really enjoyed this movie. Tried to be vague to not spoil the movie.

    Really looking forward to Smiths next movie.

    Hes come a long way as an actor.


    Thanks for the sig, gidget!

    I'm figuring probably not.

    I think watching movies with some so-so PQ on a dinky computer monitor really does dilute the experience. I'll either pay to the theatrical release or wait and buy/rent, and attempt to have an optimized viewing.

    YMMV.
