I was pretty disappointed with Foundation, as it obviously strayed from the books, and the story just felt clunky.Bencat57 wrote: ↑Wed Dec 29, 2021 3:37 pm As my wife is covid positive I have had to stay in so things have had to be watched to keep me a little amused . Waited till now so I could watch the full series of the The Foundation . My elder brother is a huge fan of the books and has been disappointed with the series. I read the books so long ago that I had forgotten most of it so just accepted the series as what it is and enjoyed it as a pretty fun Sci Fi series. Just bought and read the trilogy in hard back and can fully see why the series has to be different as the time scales in the books pass so quickly no chance to identify with any one character.
Also watched the latest Matrix film was honestly not expecting much at all but it was okay nothing like as startling as the first but still an intelligent addition .
I then went back and read the books, and, oh my God, they weren't that great either! (The first half of the first book starts off with an inspiring "big idea" but it's all downhill from there. Teenage me was clearly quite easy to impress.)
I hope the new Matrix offering is better than the last one. (Quite liked the first two.)
