I read the book a couple of years ago, and I loved it. It is beautifully written, with some incredible cinematography. The movie is based on the book, with the obvious exception of the character of Dr. Shokan (played by a superb actor, Ben Kingsley). The plot is what I expected from the book - about a famous scientist who becomes a recluse after he is killed, and a younger scientist who tries to be his successor, though not for long. The problem was, though, that the movie seemed to break all the rules of the book. They really did not go through with the entire story. It made me wish that they could have just made a movie out of the book, without all of the questions, and all of the complications and all of the twists. It would have been much more of a success. They did not show Shokan to be a "hero", even though he is a very brave and heroic scientist, not to mention the amazing image that he created for himself. It was a nice touch, and it was nice that he was treated as a human being, not as a scientist. He was treated just like any other human being. But the movie was too self-indulgent. The movie was too long, and the movie was boring. It was the time of the Spanish flu, and the idea of what could be done about it, and how to deal with it, and how to stop it. It just did not seem to be very useful. A lot of people were worried about the flu pandemic, and the notion that it was going to wipe out all of humanity, and the movie didn't tell us what happened after that. And some of the stuff in the movie was kind of heavy-handed. I was concerned about the way the doctors treated the patients. I guess the idea of killing people and then hiding it from them was kind of disturbing. It just did not really seem to fit in the movie. The movie was worth seeing, but it just did not seem to be a good fit for the book. Overall, I gave this movie a 7 out of 10.

Lois and Clark has a few problems, most of them in the writing. I have been told that a lot of the story and character development were borrowed from real people, people like Pearl Harbor survivors and all that. But it was in the writing, in the screenplay, that I noticed that I had to remind myself of things, things that I had forgotten before. Also, the characters were trying to be more than they really were. I mean, can you really blame Clark for being a womanizer? I mean, he was a military man and he was married to an Army officer. But for him to show his men how to pull off a kiss, what would you think of him? That he thought the women were the real prize. In real life, even if he wanted to be with a woman, he would've known better. He knew how women really were. I mean, even if he knew his wife was more interested in him, he would've known better. This is why I don't think the movie is all that bad. It has some decent moments. When Clark and Lois meet at the farmhouse, I was surprised because there is nothing romantic or fun about that scene. It's just Clark and Lois going over the story of Pearl Harbor. And Clark is not only a man who likes to have sex, but he is also a master of strategy. Not the same as a President, but a highly competent and intelligent man. It's not really necessary that he get laid for it to work. It was too easy. I think it's the writing. All in all, I think the movie was fine. It's worth seeing. But I do think the writing was too reliant on the real world to make it work.
