2001: A Space Odyssey ★★★★★

One of my all time favorites. A can get if someone doesn't like this movie, or is bored by it by it's incredibly slow pace, but, it has easily some of the best directing, by the famous Stanley Kubrick and quite possibly the best cinematography I've ever seen. The special effects are breathtaking and hold up with the special effects of today, if not even better than effects of today. This film is visually riveting, and it's plot is good enough to create suspense and care for it's characters, including one of the greatest villains in cinematic history, HAL 9000. The scenes with him are the best in the entire film, and had me at the edge of my seat. This is a film that when it ended, it had me phased and to this day I think about it's hidden meanings and poignancy and the cinematic experience I had that night. By far my favorite Kubrick film!
