On The Lighter Side: I,Robot or I,Saturn

Nothing serious here. It’s Thanksgiving for crying out loud and I’ve gotta turkey to cook. Shannon suggested writing a space opera about Thanksgiving. Hmm. Maybe for next year. But today I’m blogging about one of my favorite movies, I,Robot. It’s not very deep, mind you, but there are some one-liners that I love. And in case you haven’t seen the movie, and I’m sure you have, here’s a quick summary.

In the year 2035, robots are an everyday household item, and everyone trusts them, except one, slightly paranoid detective. Investigating what he alone believes is a crime perpetrated by a robot. The case leads him to discover a far more frightening threat to the human race.

I’m one of those people who sees a spiritual metaphor or allegory in every book I read and every movie I watch. While I, Robot is one of my favorite movies for various reasons, there were a couple of lines that I love because, well, they seemed to speak loudly to me in spiritual terms. But I might be the only one. I haven’t watched the movie in a few days (ha) so I’m not sure if I have these lines exact:

“I believe my father created me for a purpose.”

“There was this one guy. . .” (referring to Jesus walking on water).

What are you favorite movie lines? They don’t have to be lines from your favorite movies, they can be your favorite lines from a not-so-favorite movie.

Moving on here. I,Saturn. What’s that about, you ask? Take a look.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!
Beth
