Phillip K Dick novels are usually very enjoyable

I found it distracting, either make a cartoon or live action movie is what I think. This strange mixture between the two doesn't seem sure what it wants to be, it's almost like they've stuck a cartoon skin over live action footage or something.

I suppose it's all computer animated though; just scanned in the faces of each actor.

they have stuck a cartoon skin over live action, its called rotoscoping... like they used for the video game, 13

i just picked up the book earlier, going to read it and see what the film is like in comparison

couldn't see a release date though?

is it also fair to say that when your laying in bed at night or at the beach on holiday you like to have some dick by your side?
