It’s been a “slow blog” month. Please accept my apologies for lack of original content here. And please accept my apologies in advance for this most unimaginative update too.
The weekend before last I went to see the film “I, Robot” at the Vue Cinema at the O2 Centre on Finchley Road in North London. Personally I thought it was a great film. I haven’t read the book before - but all I can say is that the the film was very predictable, very funny and full of fantastic special effects. It was kind of like a fusion of Bladerunner, The Matrix, The Terminator and Robocop - all in one. Excellent entertainment. My favourite moment was the bit in the film where the NX-5 robot is slicing a cucumber in the kitchen of Will Smith’s mother’s house. That really made me laugh!
Because we decided to watch the first showing on the Sunday morning - we practically had the whole cinema hall to ourselves. I took the following picture in the car park of the O2 Centre afterwards - the solitary VW Beetle car in the background had a very distinctive “I, Robot” feel about it.
(Ignore the error - the comment will still be added - I just haven’t got round to fixing the problem yet)
