I saw the latest summer blockbuster, iRobot last night. I'm not well-read enough in Asimov to determine how close it is to his book, but the movie was entertaining. I have a feeling the disclaimer "Suggested by the book by Isaac Asimov" means that the title is the same, and they both had robots...
I wonder if the droids in Star Wars are 3 laws compliant? Certainly not for IG-88 and 4-LOM (bounty hunter droids). What about Data and Lore? Did Dr. Soongh implement the 3 laws?
As for iRobot, they should have used this album for the official movie soundtrack:
Kraftwerk - The Mix
|The Robots||Kraftwerk||The Mix||Electronica/Dance|
|Pocket Calculator||Kraftwerk||The Mix||Electronica/Dance|
|Trans Europe Express||Kraftwerk||The Mix||Electronica/Dance|
|Metal On Metal||Kraftwerk||The Mix||Electronica/Dance|
|Home Computer||Kraftwerk||The Mix||Electronica/Dance|
|Musik Non Stop||Kraftwerk||The Mix||Electronica/Dance|
The opening credits of the movie could have used "The Robots", the big car chase scene "Autobahn", the love angst scenes with "Computer Love", the home delivery of the new N-5's with "Home Computer", and the revolution with "Radioactivity". Finally, the end credits could have used "Musique Non-Stop".
Speaking of end credits, where was Will Smith's new catchy tune? Maybe he should have done a cover of The Robots by Kraftwerk...
