"Science fiction writer Harlan Ellison questioned why director Steven Spielberg didn't give more credit to fellow author H.G. Wells in his adaptation of The War of the Worlds. Ellison said: "What annoys me is that Spielberg is such an egomaniac these days that it has to be 'Steven Spielberg's War of the Worlds. No, you puss-bag. It's H.G. Wells' War of the Worlds, and it wouldn't kill you to put
his f--king name on it."

LoL, did he really say that? Right on Harlan, if he did. And here I thought "I, Robot" would have given him a stroke.

Especially since Harlan Ellison actually wrote a screenplay for "I, Robot" which never was filmed.

I've read it: it would've made an incredible movie.

Yeah thats what I meant. It was a vastly better movie than the Will Smith one, they even stole his opening scene.
