Who cares space odyssey for me it was such a slow movie spent way to long showing certain scenes, the movie to me doesn't start until the 20 - 30 minute mark and then it slightly picks up but still very slow paced too much time spent making it look artistic instead of writing a decent fucking script ;pObviously you don't appreciate art. It's supposed to be paced slowly since it has a plot that doesn't involve explosions or killing people.
Personally think it's really overrated.
I also consider you can't build-up a great space atmosphere, especially one that is supposed to be heavy, immersive and tense... if you don't take the time.
In the second chapter, I really like the scene when the scientist is flying is this kind of space plane to the space station. And the other scene when they first encounter the Monolith on the Moon. The drone music, the ambience... damn! That was intense! There is no way this scene could have been any shorter or faster-paced.
Good god, people today can't appreciate anything good.
Well, to be fair Drake wasn't hard on the movie and he didn't say it sucked balls. Plus, you don't have to like a movie like this. It might not be your type of cinema. I still think we all need to make an effort to at least try to appreciate such a special kind of cinema. The movie was well made, and it accomplished every goal Kubrick has set for it.
