The Ultimate Trip

Verity Stob takes on 2001: A Space Odyssey. I was particularly amused at the idea of installing Visual Basic on the HAL 9000, but the article as a whole reminded me that it has been a long time since I last watched the film.

I really should reconnect my VHS machine (yes, it really is that long) and watch it again sometime soon.

Should, but probably won’t. I remember 2001 as being visually stunning… but slow. So slow, and so concerned with the technicalities of production that I had completely lost interest in either the story or the characters by time the final credits started to roll.

Dr. Strangelove and A Clockwork Orange are both films that I would choose to watch over 2001.
