anyone else seen it?
going to the cinema to watch films > downloading films
Ive been slightly put off by the negative reviews pointing out the pro-christian subtext, which has me worried - should i be?
I read the book years ago and that was great.
...not only due because everyone who has ever commented on a You Tube video is a stupid, illiterate cunt, but, because there is a SPOILER right at the top!
to assrape another one of my precious cultural memories.
you shouldn't be worried at all. go see it :)
would be lolcats :)
someone make it!
but trying to find a cat that looks like Will Smith will be too difficult :)
You is legend
He / she are legend...
and lead actor but I already never want to see it.
boo. boo. and thrice boo.
Will Smith is in our band.
What does he play?
looks a bit 28 days later/that one where it's all a tv show to me
shuld have stopped at men in back
predates 28 days later by decades.
the charlton heston version??? i cant decide wether i want to see this, i kind of do, but then think id feel dirty afterwards.
i've got it on video.
it's..... ok. well. i like it. it's a bit freaky with all the 'vampire' like people in it. i don't think it has the same ending exactly as the book though.
but i wanna know if anyone has seen the 50's version 'The Last Man On Earth' - Vincent Price (!) plays the hero.
...except this one
Big Willy style?
man if the fresh prince cast made a cameo appearance as zombies.
yes im going to see it though.
looks very good.
that is what i think
but at this point the film seems so far removed that i don't care anymore.
I really doubt will smith/a hollywood film has the balls to pull off a good version of this.
the main character in the book is nothing like will smith (who can only play will smith) at all. i don't see them carrying though the end of the book properly, which makes the title utterly redundant.
The spoiler from that youtube has given me vague hope, but i still expect thhis to be a huge pile of dripping aids gash dumped on a book i love.
seems to mostly consist of deer being run over by cars. Which is intriguing.
Staff preview thing. It was ok, it plodded along but it seemed a bit Resident Evil/28 Days later to me. And the ending is very abrupt. And the CGI for the zombie people really isn't very good. And I hate how every single film ever recently has decided "Hang on, who says zombies have to be slow? Lets make them all run superfast, all the time!".
i think the last thing i saw him in was probably men in black! so - taking into consideration this is all i had to go on - i was quite impressed with his acting.
agreed, the ending is a bit abrupt... we kind of looked at each other and went 'oh ok'!
Aren't they supposed to be vampired? Who are generally pretty spry.
They're humans with diseases, hence the entire plot consisting of find a cure.
mike patton has done the animal noises for this.
Credited as 'creature vocals'.
you notice mike patton doing the 'creature vocals'?
the novel or omega man ?
i havent read the book but as a film it is definitely worth watching, it nevers reachs its potential though. The sense of loneliness was portrayed quite well so when the woman comes along it didnt really get across how big that moment should have been, will smith was excellent though.
the trap is set up by the zombie people after they see him doing it
'Jumanji In The City' or something.
shadesofsame it was the darkseekers that set that trap up - the trap was the same as the trap will smith set to catch one of them.
and asking if it's the sequel to I, Robot...
I thought it was excellent up to the ending, what a complete let-down that was.
I was expecting some interaction between him and that main darkseeker guy, as I thought (I've not read it) that the book ended with him finding out that the 'vampires' feared him as he was hunting them while they were sleeping during the day, capturing them and doing experiments on them, and therefore he turns out to be the 'baddie'? or something?
anwyay, it's a very good film but the ending is dire.
I don't get the anti-Will Smith feeling going on in here, what's wrong with him? Have you watched The Pursuit Of Happyness? He's excellent, one of the best big-budget leading men around.
it also happens just after robert neville (smith) says in his lab that they now exhibit no human characteristics, so i think it's also partly to show he was wrong and they are still capable.
I wanted more post-apocalyptic civilisation scenes, and I didn't like the computer zombies.
As anyone seen the alternative ending? It's worse than the theatrical cut's ending. The animated comics on the special edition DVDs are great though.
The book is AMAZING. Don't be put off it by the film, the two plots share no relation. It's surprising really that the makers had the gall to call it I Am Legend when two previous adaptations were given different names, their creators realising they were completely different stories.
I don't go combing through dexy's old posts though huh.
and even if I did, it's not much of an accusation
overshadowed by the fact this Will Smith's character is clearly very clever then does something very very stupid to send the plot into the final third.
the scene's in the lab with the mental dog are cool.
6/10, better luck next time.
i saw this at the top and was like 'i don't remember starting a thread'!
in other - related - news, i watched the Fresh Prince of Bel Air this morning :D
