Question: Was Minority Report and Imposter based on Phillip K. Dicks novels? I think I saw something on a commercial that said something like that. Anyone know?

Anyone seen "Minority Report"?? It's just about to come out here in Aus, and I am debating whether or not to see it. <BR> <BR>Paul

Here in the UK, Minority Report will not be released for quite a while I think (I mean we have only JUST had Spider-man released FFS), so pleeease no spoiders <IMG SRC="/forum/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif"> <BR>But I am looking forward to seeing this, and it could really be a great PKD inspired movie. <BR>Certainly nowhere near Blade Runner (obviously), but perhaps right up there with Total Recall....which I thought had a lot of good ideas concerning the usual PKD obsessions of the nature of reality. <BR>

We each live in our own realities - who's maintaining yours?
