There are so many books out there just begging to be made into films, why does Fox have to remake a classic? Why not film Joe Haldeman's,"Forever Wars"? Or "Alfred Bester's "The Stars My Destination"? Or Arthur C. Clarke's "Rendezvous With Rama"? Or "Childhood's End"? Or the Mars Trilogy by Kim Stanley Robinson? Or quit stalling Orson Scott Card's "Ender's Game" as a movie?

..........or Issac Asimov's "Foundation" Series. Now that would make an interesting series of films!

So would The Mote in Gods Eye by Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle set in the distant future of Pournelle's CoDominium universe.

Robert A. Heinlein, who gave the authors extensive, detailed advice on the novel, blurbed the story as "possibly the finest science fiction novel I have ever read".

You make it sound like that's a bad thing! ;) The Matrix is still my favorite movie of all time.

That was not my intention. I think some people not me of course will always think him as Neo.

In The Day the earth stood still I liked his portrayal of Klaatu. The Role of the Secretary of state was missed casted in this movie in my opinion.
