2001: A Space Odyssey

It really sucks when you watch a film and end up realizing you need to watch it again.

Not in the fun "wow, what a great film, I bet I missed a bunch of details," way, but more in the "I came in here with the absolute wrong expectations and now I've gone and ruined it," way.

2001 is one of those films that gets referenced in media a lot which essentially gave me this weird copy of the film that made me expect a very different experience than the one I got. I was bored, mostly. And had I come in with expectations more in line with what the film actually is rather than a space opera or something I probably would have appreciated it a lot more.
