    Not sure what I make of the faux animation look - not entirely convinced by the trailer...

    Its directed by Richard Linklater (one of the smartest Directors around) and uses the same rotoscoping technique (drawing every frame on top of digital video) he used in Waking Life. It will be the best sci-fi of the year. Keanu will be fine without the bad Matrix dialogue and he has an amazing supporting cast of Robert Downey, Woody Harrelson and Winona Ryder, to back him up.

    The problem is that, for me, the films are better than the Philip K. Dick books/short stories e.g. Bladerunner(Do Androids Dream Of Electric Sheep), Total Recall(We Can Remember It For You Wholesale) and Minority Report(These are the only ones I've read that I've seen the film versions of, I've not read Paycheck)

    Sacrilege! The films are the merest wisps of the original works.
