Currently reading Harlan Ellison's unfilmed screenplay for I, Robot. As usual, Ellison rants about how Hollywood is stupid, but frankly I don't see that this screenplay is that great, or even good. Granted, this was written back in 1978, but there have been a lot of robot movies since then: Blade Runner, Ghost in the Shell, Bicentennial Man, Animatrix, Spielberg's AI. It's like Philip K. Dick's original Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep, when you look at it now, this ground's been covered, it's passe.
