Re: Make something new

This. Why have we never seen the The Foundation trilogy turned into a movie? It makes so many excellent points on monetary, technological hegemony, and the whole idea of prediction of masses of people (and the inability to predict the anomalous unpredictable individual, but setting up a storage of human knowledge for the inevitable day when civilization collapses.

Or a movie like "Time enough for love". The idea that our abilities and interest span many professions and would take many lifetimes, but we are limited to ONE. We don't get to pursue so much that we would like to pursue because we are so time limited.

WAY too much good Sci Fi, and it gets ignored to rehash Dune one more time? Sci Fi got close to nailing it... they needed about twice as much time to do it right. It is definitely a 15 hour (without commercials) movie.
