2001: A Space Odyssey

2001: A Space Odyssey ★★★★

This movie is visually awesome. The score slaps. The color palette and cinematography had me in disbelief. The story was great too. And those effects are crazy good. DID I ALSO MENTION THE COLORS? I FEEL LIKE I NEED TO MENTION THE COLORS AGAIN!

But… there is not one single reason this movie needed to be two and a half hours long. (I do like that they included the Intermission on the Blu-ray copy I watched though, that’s a neat little tidbit). Like the amount of ogling Kubrick demands from the viewer here is insane. And I sat through Interstellar twice. And I'm mainly talking about the first half of the movie. The second half was perfect.

Also, their spaceship looks like a bong and the yellow spacesuit is the superior spacesuit.

Chipping away at my Watchlist.
