Dual Will Smith Movie Review

Two really short reviews. The one sentence summary: I recommend both movies.

Last weekend Elizabeth and I had our first date since arriving in Seattle (OK, Bellevue). We went to Thai Ginger, a very good Thai restaurant in Factoria, then went across the street to see the latest Will Smith movie, "Hitch." I have to say that it may be the best romantic comedy I've ever seen. Now, I'm not a HUGE romantic comedy fan, but I do like some. And "Hitch" is a good date movie and a great romantic comedy. The flow, the gags, the character development - everything worked well. Thumbs up.

This past weekend, we rented the slightly older Will Smith movie "I, Robot" (but only because they were out of "Ray" and we'd heard that "I, Robot" was a good movie, even though not being at all like the book). It was also an excellent movie. In fact, I think Asimov himself would have liked it, because even though it is drastically different from the book "I, Robot" the movie explores the issues of the Three Laws of Robotics. Thumbs up.
