2001: A Space Odyssey

A Shocking Waste Of Time

(Edit) 13/11/2014

This came out when I was at junior school so I'm old enough to have heard about it (a lot) but never got the chance to see it. What a dissapointment! I waited 40 years to devote a couple of hours to seeing 'a masterpiece' and was REALLY let down.

It is, with out doubt, the biggest load of whacky, self indulgent garbage I have seen since Black Swan. Kubrik on a good day is a master (A Clockwork Orange) but this has to rate as a stinker. No plot....at all, really annoying music score, looooooong sequences of nothing other than shots of a spaceship floating around in space, actors in monkey suits grunting at each other and an ending that just left me saying...'what on earth was THAT all about?'

I invested over 2 hours of my life into this film and I will never see those again and consequently I'm really annoyed that I bought the hype. I don't know where Kubrik was when he put this thing together but it certainly was not planet Earth.

Saving Mr. Banks

Top Notch Performances

(Edit) 06/11/2014

Emma thompson is just brilliant as the buttoned-up prissy PL Travers and Tom Hanks has a lot of fun as Mr Disney. In the real story Ms Travers was not a fan of the final film and wanted nothing more to do with it so this 'insider' view is not completely on the mark but what it lacks in following the real story it more than makes up with class, laughter and a few tears.

Great stuff...highly reccomended.
