Sundance Channel. Direct-To-DVD. Masterpiece Theater. That's what I want for Rama.

Clarke pointed out how distracting they would be in zero-G. We must remain true to the source material.

the book is boring. Lots of exploration, little characterization or action. I don't see a very good movie coming out of it.

Honestly, characterization isnt as important to me in SF as ideas...I know that's not a popular view. It's not that characters aren't important, but I think the genre allows for some leeway.

As for action, I think a movie like this DOES have to rely on VISUALS. It has to conjur up a sense of wonder without having to rely on government sabotage or alien invasion. Think big and bold.

The key to the ideas part is your completely dependent on good acting to convey these ideas as an actual experience.
