    Real Steel is based on a Richard Matheson short story which Rod Serling turned into a half-hour Twilight Zone episode. How the fuck did they stretch it into a full-length movie?

    What is Rum Diary? I think one of HST's books was called "The Rum Diaries".

    That explains it. They added a kid, a chick, a love story, cooler robots, and bad acting to stretch it out.

    I fuckin' LOVE WTBR...the cast, the NY soundtrack...FAL is arguably better, but I'll always prefer Buffalo. I'll have to look into the Rum Diaries; I read the book years ago. Is this another Johnny Depp vehicle?

    well like most movies from this time ....they had a message of sorts....like fuck the establishment ...stand up for yourself.....you can be yourself and still make it and not be a ass sucking sell out....kinda like most of the music from 60's..that why wtbr is muh favorite and bill murray is funny and they didnt need cgi or effects to make a good flick

    one of the best lines from the movie...HUNTER ..theres no hunting going on here....this is a party not a safari sucka...also el zono finale
