Perhaps the most polarizing film ever made, 2001:A Space Odyssey has provoked extreme reactions from critics, celebrities, and everybody else.
Viewers of the film usually feel one of three ways about it:
1. They use words like "extraordinary", "astounding", and "mind-blowing" and consider it the greatest science fiction film and one of the greatest, if not the greatest film of all time.
2. They feel it is a ground-breaking, artistic, and important film that is too "slow", "abstract", or even "unwatchable" to be considered good.
3. It is the slowest, most boring and biggest waste of time in the history of cinema.
This site is mostly for those in the 1 and 2 category. If you are a 3, don't go away just yet. Understand that most people don't "get" the film the first time they see it. If you are willing, see it again, keeping in mind it doesn't fit the mold of any other film. Try to experience it rather than follow it. If you need explosions and likeable characters you can relate to in your movies, then you had better move on.
(Author's Note:) Slowly but surely, this site is coming back online. I neglected it for way too long and for that, I sincerely apologize. I've invested some time in learning new software to create web pages with a more modern look and feel. I've still got a long way to go but I'm getting there. Thank you so much for all of you who have indicated your appreciation for my work here.
