A fascinating dichotomy: best SF story every made, worst SF movie ever made
10 January 2002 | by (East Lansing, MI) – See all my reviews

Wow, this is a stinker. They took a great SF short story and turned it into utter rubbish. Isaac Asimov is spinning at 3000 RPM in his grave. Why would they do this? Why would the Asimov estate consent to let this buchery be done?

My favorite line: "I projected an image into their minds", Brooks explaining his strange. Funny how Goodman failed to ask how he managed to project into a bunch of snakes minds that they would blow up and they actually did...

Dante has a special place for people who make films like this. I wish them an eternity in it...
