You mean I, Robot, right?

That's originally some incredibly famous sci-fi novel (that I never read ^^;;) that the Animatrix undoubtably ripped off of. Heh.

I just read I, Robot, and it kicks ass. The movie isn't about the book though, but it'll be awesome.

Troy looks great as well. The scene with all the ships sailing to the beach tingled my spine.

Van Helsing looks good too.

I'm not so thrilled about I, Robot. Seems very cheesy and a very weird Minority Report.

But Troy. OMG! Reminds me of Gladiator. Only with more field battles. I love huge battles! I hope we see more great characters that fought at Troy other then Achilles. We should see Ajax, Odysseus, etc. Oh man!

And Van Helsing, although it doesn't really look like the old Abraham Van Helsing played by Peter Cushing(Grand Moff Tarkan!!!) it looks awesome!

Oh man, I am so looking forward to Troy. To see the Trojan War played out on the silver screen would be an awesome experience. Heck, putting the Iliad itself to screeen alone would make a great blood and guts movie, kinda in the style of Braveheart. And The Iliad is just loaded with great battles.

Hi there Rogues! Seems everybody is here Great!!!
"I, robot" by Isaac Azimov!!! It should be great! I read it almost 10 years ago, it was really interesting. Also "Steel Caves" is a good story.
Troy? They are probably going to turn it into another West against East movie.

Yes, seems it is based on "Steel Caves", isn't it? Some kind of futuristic detective story.
No... Seems it is based on the "I, robot" story about clever Nestor which escaped from factory and they caught it by a logical trick?

1. HIIIII Luka!!

2. West against East movie? Another? Eh? >.>;;

I do know they're basing it on the actual historical Trojan War as well as the Illiad - more so, rather - so sadly, no Greek gods will be making appearances. *sniff*

Saw it this weekend... Not a bad flick at all, though after LOTR's Massive (pun intended, though few will get it) battles make the combat in Troy seem less grand then it is... All in all, though, I give it 8 out of 10.

Troy = big disappointment. That's not to say it was all bad, and some parts I really liked. But I had high hopes for this movie. Inordinately high, considering I was really into Greek mythology when I was a kid.

And, well, it's just not all that great. Good, but not great.

And I for one get the pun

I can't wait for "Day After Tomorrow". There was an article in this month's Popular Science about it, and while it wouldn't happen quite as fast as it does in the movie, we could be facing the exact same scenario as early as 2010 something isn't done to curb the greenhouse effect.
