    I've seen "The Omega Man," so I really lost interest after hearing that this was a remake.

    It says 11:59 for 'Thursday' showing, but I'm guessing that means midnight on Weds.

    Legend is getting good reviews, a 8.2 rating is excellent.
    http://imdb.com/title/tt0480249/

    Catch it while it's still in theaters - an exceptionally high rating - superb storytelling and characterization without needing special effects, odd camera angles or being half a music video -

    I read "Legend" years ago - it is really good (if they stick to the story line) The author Matheson is a cool dude. I'm definitely gonna see it.

    "No Country" was AMAZING! One of my favorite movies ever. I'm not a huge fan of the Cohen Bros, but I gotta give 'em major credit for this one - Awesome!!!!

    I witnessed them filming the movie actually. I went to 5th ave in NYC to see my girlfriend. That day there was a HUGE crowd as the entire street of 5th ave looked like a jungle. It was surely something. I saw Will smith running out of LV. I believe they were filming an action scene. Movie sure looks intresting

    I finally saw a preview this week that gave me an idea of what it was about. I was a little upset b/c it didn't seem very original...I didn't know it was a re-make though.

    Saw I am Legend last night and was thoroughly impressed. Will Smith was a great casting choice and did a great job in the solo acting department. I haven't read any of the critical reviews but I don't see why they would be bashing it. It had a cool flashback time flow that I enjoyed.

    I can't see anyone on here not enjoying it (plus the Dark Knight trailer alone was bad ass.)

    On a final note to those who have seen it and all the previews for it is WTF was Adam Sandler's movie. Sure it will gross two times what it cost to make but goddamn. Oh and Will Farrell's movie looks pretty funny.

    I went to I Am Legend last night, it was decent. The film you are referring to BV was in the 90's with a 'bigger' budget filmmaker behind the helm, not sure who.

    I am a big fan of Matheson's novels, and so was nevertheless slightly disappointed in the movie.

    I can honestly say, despite it's 'kitch-ness' I enjoyed the Omega Man more, but for what it's worth, here are my thoughts:

    The Good:

    Will Smith's acting, believe it or not. He does a good job at portraying alot of the pathologies that the main character in the book portrayed. He's believable and definitely creates some pathos.

    The Bad:

    Story deviation. In the novel, Matheson, like in the movie, becomes the antagonist to the 'vampires'. However, in the book, and I think what's a little cooler, the 'I Am Legend' stems from the new 'still-living' vampires fearing Neville. He becomes a 'legend' who stalks and kills the still-living, being a legend in that sense. The movie would have had more of a pull for me if they would have done that.

    The Ugly:

    The ****ing CGI was butt-****ing horrible. Seriously. I've made better FX with a box and a sock puppet.

    Ugh - Im so sick of over-done CGI that's so prevalent in films today. Good models and inventive camera work look so much cooler. Still want to check this one out though....

    i am legend was the book that spawned all of the omega man-like movies. all of those last-man-on-earth movies were adaptations of I Am Legend.

    Not a remake of omega man.

    No, it's a film based on the novel I Am Legend. Omega-Man is Matheson's novel, just deviated.

    I didn't think that it was that bad. I'm not sure where the negative reviews come from. Before when I just saw the movie preview, they make it seem like it is something like '28 days later' or 'Resident Evil' when really the main focus was not on the zombies at all.


    It is more of Will Smith's character struggling to keep his sanity and struggle, more or less, after no human interaction for the past 3 years.

    The zombie type things were probably the worst graphics I have ever seen. It is like they didn't try as this is 2007, not 1998.

    Overall: A-

    It is a good movie and I thought it was worth the money.

    thanks for the review Reaper always disappointed to hear there is crappy CG in any movie this day and age, anyone that was a fan of Pumpkinhead be sure to avoid the straight-to-scifi channel sequels 3+4, absolute garbage, its amazing to see how bad CG can be. Jaws 5+6 and Gremlins 3+4 are slated for direct to DVD teenage-aimed sequels with lame CG as well

    But I will wait until it comes out to video to watch it.

    Actually, the bad dudes in I am Legend look a lot like Pumpkin head lol.

    The movie was decent, and has a suprising ending which deviates entirely from the book. In fact, the movie has almost nothing to do with the book except the overall concept, the night stalkers and the main characters name. I enjoyed the ending in the book much better.

    Again, I'm sure they spent a lot of time putting together the movie, I don't see why they severely cut corners on the graphics.


    Also too, they could have made the movie a bit more 'spicy'.

    I didn't realize the movie was rated 'PG-13' until I was standing in front of the booth buying my ticket. This lead to a very 'tame' movie.
