2001, A Space Catastrophe
This is really a terrible movie. I remember years ago when 2001: A Space Odyssey came out. All the heads would go to it to see the colors when the guy goes through the star gate. This one has colored geometric shapes. Far out. There is this silly subplot with this guy hooking up with one of his own kind and morphing into another dimension. It actually sounds intelligent until you see it. It is dull, dull, dull. It is thoughtless, thoughtless, thoughtless. As this young man searches for his own meaning, others move around him, confused. Just like the audience. There are long, pontificating speeches. "I'll know it when I see it." "I know I'm destined for it." Gee, I wonder what it is. I'm sure that the makers of this really saw it as an artistic endeavor. However, Stanley Kubrick, they ain't.
