^ I was actually listening to the Space Odyssey soundtrack a few hours ago. It's been years since I've seen the actual film but I must download it sometime soon. The soundtrack works really well as a standalone album but I guess you have to watch the film as well to get the full experience.

The ending was left ambiguous and open, making me wonder and keeping it stuck in my head. I love movies where things are left open ended because when you have movies that try and explain the mysteries of the universe/life it ends up stupid and contrived. Kubrick is an amazing director, I would put him over any of popular directors today.
Sometimes I really hate to blindly agree with the populace and some so called classic films just don't do anything for me but I watched this film last around six months ago and it still blew me away as much as the first time watching it over 20 years ago.

Even if the subject matter is not to everyone's taste, it is still a mind blowing piece of cinema that holds up easily. The use of music, edits, effects and imagery is virtuoso film making at it's finest and I am not that big a Kubrick fan either.

There are only a handful of films that are beautiful to watch and this is definitely right up there. Gives me an idea for a thread

One Day Like Rain



I read a few reviews which said that this was a masterpiece, so I decided to watch it. I shouldn't have done that. This movie is AWFUL. Everything in it is horrible - the story, the acting and the directing. One of the worst movies I have ever seen.

saw this on tv. erm, if you're gonna base a musical on Motown, you might as darn well write songs that are closer to Motown. nothing interesting here besides Eddie Murphy. 2.5/10

I really liked this. It showed how Christopher Nolan can have twists, without being totally M. Night Shyamalan either. I literally watched it, and then watched it again immediately afterwards. It's a great repeat viewing movie because the 'twist' are laid out in the movie and don't seem totally out of the blue once you know the truth.

9 bucks was a little much to watch a 40 year old album played over a 70 year old movie, but it was a great experience. There were times I really thought Pink Floyd purposefully made the album for the movie. 8.5/10
