I Am Legend

I'm trying to decide whether to see this flick. Anyone know if it is true to Richard Matheson's 1954 novel on which it's based? Or is it a departure like the second film adaptation of it, The Omega Man?

I won't spoil it for you in case you haven't seen the latest adaptation starring Will Smith or read Matheson's seminal book, but this just doesn't strike me as a Christmas feel-good movie. Why didn't they make this for a summer blockbuster premiere?


  1. I haven't seen it, but the trailers are convincing proof that it's not like the book, a favorite of mine for 50 years now. I'll probably see the movie anyway.

  2. I haven't paid much attention to the trailers. Do know they moved it from Cali to NY. I think I'll catch it on video. Let me know if it's worth viewing.
