Watched "I Am Legend" last night also, Its a good remake of the "The Omega Man" from 1971.
Which was a remake of "the Last Man on Earth" starring Vincent Price.

Must say i was disappointed with I am Legend. Why is it that every time there's a virus or drug that affects a large amount of people in movies these days they turn into superhuman super strong building climbers? Thought the baddy's in Omega man were much better not superhuman. they actually behaved like something BAD happened to them.... don't even get me started on how zombies are portrayed these days. what ever happened to a brisk walk to get away from the zombies?!?!?...sorry I'm starting to rant...anyhoo...Descent sound in I am Legend \:\)

It's like the loudness war. Once one movie had fast zombies, every other zombie movie had to raise the speed of theirs to compete.

I've heard the acting was good, as expected by the star, but the writers really screwed it up.

They have been getting a bit over stylized, but look what they've done to vampires, it started with the really scary guys like Max Schreck in Nosferatu, now they all look like Brad Pitt.

The dog was great!

I watched this just today, although, he (the dog) did make a bad decision (don't want to spoil it for anyone) at one point...

I am not big into the virus/end of mankind movies, but I did enjoy this one.

I would add to that the director and editors also screwed it up. I really like Will Smith who I think did a good job with what he had but even he couldn’t save this one for me. Seemed like they were just trying to make the movie do to much and just couldn’t keep it cohesive until the very end. There were a few nice audio tricks like the lion jumping over your shoulder to the front of the screen (made me look to the side) but these were few and far between. Overall I think it was worth seeing for curiosity sake but still have to chuck a Rotten Tomato at the screen.

have you seen 30 days and 30 nights? Vamps in that one are bit more traditional to how they're intended to be but with a bigger CGI budget.... Speaking of CGI I am Legend had some of the worst CGI I've seen in a long time.
