This is freaking me out.
I was watching "I Am Legend" starring Will Smith last night. It came on at midnight on TNT. I made a post to ATS on a thread recently briefly
contrasting the three films based on the novel "I Am Legend" by Richard Matheson:
"The Last Man On Earth" starring Vincent Price
"The Omega Man" starring Charlton Heston
"I Am Legend" starring will Smith
In the thread (I can't remember which one) I related how I thought the version that most closely matched the novel was "The Last Man On Earth"
although it suffered from a very low budget, and that while the Will Smith version of "I Am Legend" was very well made except for the CGI vampires, my
favorite version was still "The Omega Man".
With me so far?
OK. So when "I Am Legend" started I remembered posting the above somewhere on ATS (I don't post anywhere else), and thought I'd update my thoughts
about the Will Smith version. I spent an hour searching in vain on ATS and on Google for the post I made by using most if not all of the key words
that should have brought up a search result directing me to the thread in question. And after scanning all the results, my post is simply not there.
There are threads that talk about these three films, but none of them contained my post. It wasn't off-topic. I think the thread I'm referring to was
about apocalyptic films or vampires or zombie survival plans. Something like that.
For instance. Using the key words Charlton Heston on the ATS search brought up a number of posts containing his name. But not mine. I checked them
all. I also used a combination of the names of the films, the stars, and the abbreviation CGI. Zip. Nada. The empty set.
SO... have I experienced a timeline shift. WTH. I can't figure this one out.
