2001: A Space Odyssey (1968)

Format: Blu-ray
Venue: Casa de Q

Saw this once as a kid, and I've since felt a major blind spot in my classic film education and woefully absent from my knowledge base. Watched my friend Q's copy of the Blu-ray and...I hate this film. Is it beautiful and brilliantly shot? Absolutely! Is it worth 2.5 hours of your time to suffer through a pretentious, plot-less piece of crap masquerading as a classic? Not even close. The thing that bugs me is that there is an interesting story here buried under endless self-indulgence.

Rating: 4/10 Atkins
