Boycott the opening week of 'I,Robot'

There's a new movie coming out this month called I, Robot. I'm sure a number of you are familiar with this Issac Asimov collection of short stories about intelligent robots. Like all his work it's very cerebral.

Which is the problem with this movie...it's an action movie that features robots going bananas. The movie was originally going to be called Hardwired, but then the studio got the rights to I, Robot and changed the name.

In truth, there are only 4 things that made it from book to movie: the title, the author's name, a character named Susan Calvin, and a modified version of Asimov's Three Laws of Robotics.

Check out these articles, it's where I got my information for this post: please "press here" or "press here".
