Movie Review

2001: A Space Odyssey-

This was one of those classics that I had never seen. I tried to watch it once unsuccessfully. I bought it on blu ray quite awhile ago because it was only $7. But it still sat on my shelf unwatched until last night.

The disc itself threw me off. There is no menu screen. Instead it starts with a black screen and eerier music. I thought something was wrong with the disc.

Once I realized the movie was playing I was ready to sit and make it through this movie.

I did.

But I have to say, I was bored. Sure the effects look great for it's time. It was visually interesting. But still, it was boring.

I don't mind slow movies. But this just didn't do it for me.

Try it when you're sick and in the throws of a hallucination inducing fever.
