2001: A Space Odyssey ★★★★

Why do people pretend to like this so much?

This is obviously an incredible technical achievement and looks beautiful, but Jesus Christ is so slow and boring. It wouldn't have killed Kubrick to speed it up a little.
A second time around I liked this less, I'm still stunned by the effects but it's not anywhere near as good as people seem to say it is.
