Comments this week:

“As for “Didn’t we already see the space cylinder thing in Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home?”, Yes, but they never went inside the thing.” = hugh57

“The book is interesting, but hugely anti-climactic, and, as I recall, lacks compelling characters. The visuals would be interesting to convey, but not the story.” – Bill Preston

“Rama’d be better as a tv show where it could expand out and really say something. Much like Cherryh’s Foreigner books, Rama is not much of a slam bam space opera, but the attention to characterization and interaction is perfectly suited to an hour-long tv drama.” – platyjoe

“If there’s any truth to the rumor that David Fincher is directing it, that significantly increases its chances of not sucking.” – Gabriel Mckee

“‘Here’s what we’ll do! It’ll be that thingie, that Arthur C. Clarke book, Rama 1/2 or whatever, with the cigar in space….buuuut, we’re gonna throw KEANU REAVES at it, with BRUCE WILLIS as a bad guy in a CAPE…and we’re going to have MICHAEL BAY direct! It’ll be gold! The kids love this kind of crap! Let’s make it!’ — Hollywood.” – Pete Tz.
