2001: A Space Odyssey

I’m still kinda speechless and collecting my thoughts... but wow, I didn’t care for this film and think that it is extremely overrated. This was way too long then it needed to be, and I was confused throughout most of it. The most engaging parts (the two astronauts and the A.I. system on the space shuttle) was only in the film for around 45 minutes, and everything else that happened just didn’t click for me. While I can see how this film paved the way for so many more sci-fi films to come, I just don’t understand why it is so highly regarded and praised. I’m probably alone in this one, but this unfortunately just wasn’t for me…
