@))!: A Space Odessy (SPOILERS?)
There is probably already a thread about this movie, but since I can't find a search function, I will start a new one.
I just saw 2001 for the first time. Most of the time, I couldn't believe that this is considered one of the best films ever. It didn't get interesting until about the half way mark. Parts of it were really interesting, like how the monolith accelerated the apes' evolution. I loved how scientifically accurate it was. I never liked in Star Wars all the sounds an large explosions in space. There is no sound in space. And there is no oxygen. I liked how they used centripetal force as a sort of artificial gravity. No such thing exists on the Death Star. And now that I've seen this, I understand a few episodes of Futurama a whole lot more.
Overall, it was very boring in the beginning and very confusing towards the end. The middle was good, though.
