Yeah...

I turned it off right after Lauren mentioned the Johnny Five correlatin that I’m sooooooooo sick of hearing everywhere.

People don’t know what the hell they’re talking abut. Like Johnny Five was
even close to the first robot to have binocular shaped eyes.

Ugh.

Inspirational material

I think it’s often necessary to discuss and consider inspirational material for film work, but thanks certainly for your opinion.

True.

But, Stanton has already stated that he didn’t even realize that other robots used the binocular eyes at first… so he most certainly was not inspired by Johnny Five.

Didn't realize?

I think it’s the responsibility of a filmmaker to research what’s out there first.

Well...

That’s kind of irrelevant to anything that I said or the point I was making, but it is true…

I also think it’s the responsibility of people trying to run a movie website to do the same, but you guys didn’t.
