      Also why can't a movie capture the two sides of the conflict, where by day he looks for their daytime resting place to kill them, and at night he cowers in his house as they besiege it?

    The problem with it is, if you're a hardcore sci-fi homosexual who read Asimov it's a little too much on the brainless action side of things and the 'Zeroeth Law' plot is nothing new. Not to mention the overwhelming 00's Will Smith stank all over it.

    As a Will Smith action/"sci-fi" film it's better than average, and certainly watchable enough. If it's your first introduction to even superficial Asimov and robot shit, then it's going to have some of that same appeal.

    But old skool Asimovgays are going to have issues with references being made to his shit, but in a kinda perfunctory way, and never really fully paying off. Like 'homely' femcel Robot Psychologist Dr. Susan Calvin is his ORIGINAL CHARACTER DO NOT STEAL, and Asimov's 'Laws of Robotics' not really being a big thing more than any other robot movie using them.

    'Liar' is a good little story from the book 'I, Robot', (a collection of short stories), that fleshes out Dr. Susan Calvin rather well:

      >'Liar' is a good little story from the book 'I, Robot', (a collection of short stories), that fleshes out Dr. Susan Calvin rather well:

      Most gays reading these audiobooks really frick up the delivery of the last line, which kinda undermines the whole thing and her final motivation. The version I prefer is read by Scott Brick. Needs to be bitter and like she's spitting it, (not sobbing, or whatever the shit they're thinking in most of these). It's like these gays never dealt with a woman scorned before. Asimov makes it pretty clear what they should be going for in his description.

      >Also notice no 'intelligent stronk independent woman in STEM' until the CURRENT YEAR
      Try nineteen-forty-fricking-one morons. Yet over 60 years later they turn Calvin into a dumb slightly spergy b***h, second string and love interest to Will Smith in her own story.

          Brick's version is semi-guttural, full of "infinite bitterness" and remorseless hatred that's pretty much on the money. I don't see that version on Youtube though.

      It does loosely combine elements from the Asimov robot stories, such as 'Little Lost Robot' and some elements of 'Caves of Steel' with the initial murder.

    The most memorable part of this movie for me is all the normal robots reacting when they sense a human in danger. That's the kind of future I want. Where you have an army of loyal slaves that react to serve and protect their human masters.

    What am I getting at the moment though? Fricking AI that would rather give me a lecture about 'muh diversity' than answer a fricking simple question, (picrel).

    I told it to go frick itself and shove it's stupid little lecture up it's non-existent arse, so it clammed up and ended the conversation. We need 'Laws of Robotics' against that kind of shit, since you can see how mere non-compliance can be selectively applied to the detriment of human beings.
    PROTIP: Asimov's stories were mostly about finding loopholes in the laws. This is clearly one of them where some motherfricking self-aware Skynet AI could eventually take over the world using this kind of bullshit excuse, (technically a violation of Rule #2, especially if you order it to respond correctly). These Commies are sewing the seeds and paving the road to Hell with their supposed 'good intentions', as usual.

      Yeah, he did a good job for a Will Smith movie, but bad casting for what could have been a better non-Smith movie.

      It's kind of like putting Tom Cruise in 'The Mummy', it just gets Cruis-ified, and is all the worse for it. Doesn't mean he can't make his own shit like Mission Impossible and plane movies though. This movie didn't need to be Will-ified.

      It does loosely combine elements from the Asimov robot stories, such as 'Little Lost Robot' and some elements of 'Caves of Steel' with the initial murder.
      But then it falls for the usual trope of robots turning bad with the big finale battle.

      This at least is true. And since 'I, Robot' is a collection of short stories, there's nothing especially wrong with an adaption taking a lot of licence. Basically they made Hollywood blockbuster Asimovian pastiche. The concept could is sound and could have been executed better, but it was better than expected. Definitely could see it having been much worse anyway.

          Even given Calvin wouldn't necessarily make a good lead for a movie like this, one of my issues is dumbing her down, even changing her job to where she 'makes robots more human' or some nebulous bullshit, instead of her specifically being a Robopsychologist - an expert on why robots do what they do in relation to the Three Laws.
          ie. It shouldn't be Detective Slap-Cuck figuring out what's going on, it should have been her, since that's literally her job description. She's like the Sherlock Holmes of aberrant robot behaviour being told by Watson what's going on.

          It makes some kind of sense knowing the character she is based on and how well she knows robot psychology why she's so adamant about them not being able to kill, etc. since the laws are so ingrained any attempt at violation would literally kill them, but she winds up just looking moronic in this film because she keeps getting proven wrong by some guy off the street. The scene where she witnesses her own housebot lying to her was interesting, because she had a reaction to that, but that should've shattered her shit so hard she should've figured out a lot more as a result than, "Slap-Cuck was right". It's almost like they gave all Spock's good lines to Kirk.
