But this is tricky, i recognise Will Smith okay, but those honky robots all look alike to me :g-scratch:
What I found hard to recognise in 'I Robot' was if any of the script writer's had ever read anything by Isaac Azimov. I don't remember any of his books starting with a 40minute advert for trainers, and the trainers advert was the high pint of that film. One of the worst films I have ever seen.

I agree that 'Lost in Space' is dreadful (well apart from the excellent effects shot where Matt LeBlanc blows up the fist bad guy, but you can watch that on my showreel anyway), but it didn't claim to be a film of a great book. 'I Robot' did make that claim, and then shat all over the ideas of Isaac Azimov, plus Will Smith is far more annoying than anyone in 'Lost in Space'

On a more positive note, we watched this last night. Really brilliant, Stephen Frears is at his usual high standard, as is Judy Dench, but not being a Steve Coogan fan, I have to admit that he was absolutely superb in the film. He was the main force behind it too, buying the rights to the book, and putting in motion a superb team to make a very moving film.

Speaking of Steve Coogan, he also make a nice little cameo, as himself in 'The Lost Honour of Christopher Jefferies' shown on ITV last week, and one of the best TV dramas I have seen in ages. The kind of programme that ITV do so well.

Jason Watkins, who I last saw in 'W1A' gave an outstanding performance and the eccentric Christopher Jefferies, who was vilified by the press when wholly innocent. Worth finding on Iplayer, or catch-up .

Great drama and a superb performance from Jason Watkins. It made me feel ashamed the way he was treated by the press and the law.

I have been following this brilliant series The Missing. it had me glued to the seat and guessing the final outcome. Great acting by a English/Foreign cast.
one of the best dramas to hit the screen this year.
