A ROTTEN TOMATO: 2001: A Space Odyssey


This film really tested my patience. The visuals were absolutely stunning, but after a while I got tired of the endless shots of spacecraft floating through space. The opening “Dawn Of Man” section was fascinating and the final sequence was cool. Apart from those parts however, I just couldn't get into it.

  1. I do understand you man!
    However, I can also understand people who adore this movie. I hope that someday I can see it on the big screen to fully appreciate it as a cinematic experience.

  2. Yeh maybe it will be better on the big screen, but I doubt my reaction would be any different. At least with "Tree of Life", the quite moments involve people interacting, rather than lifeless objects.
