Really? Is that what you got from the novel?

no panoramic shots of the Lunar cities? The drama as the Revolution unfolds, the invasion of Luna City by Earth forces, the building of the electric catapults and their use in shelling earth, the dramatic journey of Mannie and Doc to Earth and confronting the Earth government, Mannie and Wyoh and Manny's homelife?

You reduce all that to "A Man Talking to a Computer?"

You got no imagination and no soul.

And I think you haven't watched enough Man (or Woman) Talking to a Computer movies

Colossus: The Forbin Project
Demon Seed

et cetera et cetera.
