l went to see I Am Legend this afternoon. I have heard mixed reviews about the film and read that while it was a good film it wasn’t a great adaptation of Richard Matheson’s book. While there were no vampires as in Matheson’s book, the zombie-like cannibals were scary. I really enjoy zombie movies with pleasure since my dad brought home Night of the Living Dead when I was a child of about 7; we watched a lot of non-traditional children’s films. I am pretty sure my dad liked to watch of flinch. He would later take joy in seeing us scream by pulling a round tube around the lake in a jagged manner that would cause us to skip across the water like a flat rock on a pond.
The movie does have an element neo-Christian element to it in Robert Neville, played by Will Smith. Ever since I had a dream of being locked inside of a mall by myself I have enjoyed movies where characters find themselves alone with all the toys, cars, and food to himself. No line at any check out. Excellent. This was a good film and I would recommend it without hesitation.
On a final note, I went to see the movie at the AMC by the Promenade. After the film I hustled along to the restroom, like most other viewers, only to find the bathrooms a wreck. Disgusting. I think dirty bathrooms are a tipping point for any business and area to go downhill. Keep your bathrooms clean please and thank you my good sirs.
