"First, there was the book "I Am Legend", then the movie "The Last man on Earth" with Vincent Price, then the movie "The Omega Man" with Charlton Heston, and now the movie "I Am Legend" with Will Smith... "

I guess you could say that it's a case of fiction repeating itself. smile

Omega Man.
I am Legend (2004 DVD, Canada.)
And now this I am Legend.


There was also 'I Am Omega" a straight to DVD release earlier this year, with Mark Decascos. (Although it does not credit Richard Matheson)

Can you give me more information on the "I Am Legend 1966" Italian film? I am a huge fan of the book and have followed the movie versions, and have never heard of that one. And it doesn't show up in the list of Dino Delaurentis films.

Joe Bob Briggs, now there's a name I hadn't heard in a while. Last I saw of him he had a small part in the movie "Casino" playing an inept employee. He was a lot of fun to watch.

BTW, if Giada Dino's daughter or granddaughter? I can never seem to keep that straight.

I saw the new movie and thought it was OK. I just couldn't figure out how a virus enables any mortal animal to head-smash through Plexiglas without caving in it's own skull... that and the whole using a .223 Tacti-cool AR from a speeding sports car to hunt deer thing when he could have easily sniped them from the top of a building or bridge with a more appropriate rifle/caliber. Not as exciting and flashy maybe but a lot more productive.

I always carry a small notebook, pen and pencil but rarely make notes or journal entries.

I just saw the movie two hours ago.

Among other strange things ...
that guy lives in the middle of Zombiesland ; he has stashed handguns in every drawer and every cupboard of his house, he has one attached to each door of his vehicule, but ...
he does not carry one !!!!!
What the matter with him ? do you think he had no time to apply for a CCW permit, due to the fast desintegration of the Administration or what ??...

I just saw this movie about an hour ago. pretty good flick but some things that really popped out at me. I am trying not to reveal any spoilers of the movie either. If you haven't seen it read no farther.

Like Frenchy said: No firearm attached to his body at all.

He is military trained but can't figure out how to run some better armored vehicles that are around from the military?

I would have to think a properly hardened base of operations would be one of my first priorities. Maybe with a fall back safe room (bank vault type)

I think i would try to eradicaate most of the Dark Seekers when given the opportunity.

He can send AM radio signals but can't recieve any. I would think communications would be easier with less frequency traffic. (Someone correct me if i am wrong on this, my communication skills are neglible)

My comm skills are probably 'bout on par with yours, and I have not seen the movie (and probably won't, at least 'til it hits TV), so I am just playing the devils advocate here.

Re the gun thing, you guys are right on. Why not pack all you can carry???

Re the "...military trained but can't figure out how to run some better armored vehicles that are around from the military...",
there are lots of military jobs that don't get you any closer to armored vehicles than a parade. Maybe he was a paper pusher???

He was a military doctor and biologist, not much call for AV training in his MOS.

Yes or have some more heavier caliber items than a few handguns? I carried and manned a M60 in the good ol'army many moons ago and nothing says hello like .308 fire....unless it is a 50 cal or 20mm cannon. :-)
