Minority Report, Round 2

I saw Minority Report again yesterday and found that it really doesn't hold up upon a second viewing. The first time, I enjoyed it (except for those dumb wooden balls.) But this time around, I found the technological short-comings too much to bear. All I could think of was Jane's hysterically-funny essay and I kept wondering why someone would go through the trouble to make such a "good" movie and leave it filled with so many holes.

Wouldn't it have been far more creepy, and interesting, and probable, if Anderton's security *had* been cancelled? Then he wouldn't have gotten any old eyeballs for his transplant, he'd have to get the eyes of someone with security clearance, someone he worked with. Now that would have been interesting! (Who to choose? How to go about doing it?)
