I've never read Asimov, but I could tell right away that as soon as the movie came out, fanboys around the world would get coronaries. It looks like yet another godawful action-thriller with an intensely inappropriate name.

Om: I do believe one of Asimov's plots involved two robots collaborating to 'unknowingly' kill a human being. Perhaps one stretcher of credibility will be that human programmers, while in complete control, just can't close every loophole.

EDIT: Hrududil…now where have I seen that word? Oh yes, that's an excellent trilogy.

Am I missing the point? Because as far as I know, Watership Down isn't a trilogy.

EDIT: And I agree,Thuryl's much more exciting.

I think, Rosy, that he has made clear his position on this one. This is a goat. He'd be much more comfortable with that sort of thing if you were not 13 and from a different continent.

Sorry.

The goat's sweet, by the way. Am I allowed to rant on and on about it?

EDIT: And that's the first time you've told me to shut up somewhat politely. Yeah! :P

I actually read the book.
I havn't seen the movie but after seeing one advertisment, I too wonder what it has to do with the book.

When I first heard this was being made into a movie, I mentally took a note I'd go see it when it came out. But given it seems to be a thriller, robots attack everyone sort of movie, I'm not sure I'll go.

T Alec as should be obvious, I am an Asimov fanboy, and the movie looks like utter crap. I bet they're going to make the robots evil.

The best thing about Asimov is that you often get the impression that he thinks things would be better if the robots were in charge. Such as the ending of "Foundation's Edge."

Technically, I, Robot isn't a book as such, just a collection of stories. Which might mean a completely new storyline. Which probably would mean no plot. If it uses a old storyline, everyone who read the relevant book will know what happens.

Either way, the one trailer I saw of it looked pretty good on the special effects.

The last one was just wrong.

I move that Thuryl should have an artifact named after him!

What? If you're going to make a post and steal my signature, the least you could do is make sense!

—Alorael, who confesses that he has no idea what FF just said. Was the comment directed at anything in particular?

Oh yes, the bunny book. That's where. I mistook it for a word from the "Out of the Silent Planet" series.

If anyone ever reads it, don't read the third one, it's just wierd and creepy.

EDIT: Topicality Statement: What is Thuryl's middle name, if he has one?

Rafael Tihon Damian. The middle one is Russian, and you cannot pronounce it.

Wait wait wait, he has 3 middle names (not too wierd, but still…)

So wait, he has Russian ancestry, or are you Alecing me?

That's why we used to call him LRTDeM, before he became strange and Thuryl.

Because you can't pronounce LRTDM. Looks like KMFDM.

Face it, folks: Thuryl is about ten times cooler than you. The icy hand of death cannot stop him.

And, come on. Lucien Rafael Tihon Damian McMahon is just bad-ass. Yes, I'm high.

I realise it's not going to resemble an actual Asimov film. But I can live with brainless action thrillers and it seems like a superior example of the type.

In light of the election, this seemed to be an amusing thread to bring back to life.

On a note actually related to what was being discussed, I have read Asimov's Foundation series and last week saw I, Robot and then read the book. I too think that Asimov seems rather willing to have robots in charge.

Heck, I only checked the date of this thread when I saw Saunders as 'unregistered'. Everyone is naked...under their clothes.

And I originally thought that Alec was a bit jealous of Thuryl because of his popularity in the elections. :P

You didn't recognize this as an old resurrected topic? I'm somewhat disappointed that it wasn't resurrected with a more specific purpose in mind, though...

What's up with Saunders' post on this page? Did she lose her old account?

Yes. A UBB bug ate her account. At this stage we can neither confirm nor deny that the UBB bug is identical to the Galactic Core bug.

Yea, what Thuryl said. It was around March, IIRC. Mystery Man also lost his a couple of weeks after he reached 1000 posts.

What's this about? Isn't Watership Down a standalone novel? Or are there other books that uses the Lapine language?

MM didn't get his post count back. Is there an admin function for editing post counts? I know there is on some message board software, but you never know on UBB.
