The robots are coming!

Okay, I am REALLY excited about the new movie "I, Robot" (starring Will Smith) based on the short story collection by Isaac Asimov. Asimov is one of my favorite writers, and he had a special gift for exploring the ambiguous relationship between humans and technology. I'm also glad to see a sign that thoughtful science-fiction cinema is not dead. There is so much more to science fiction than "Star Wars". Great SF films like "Soylent Green", "2001", and "Blade Runner" are visually and mentally stimulating, and also good "people stories". I'll try to write more about this later.
