2001: A Space Odyssey ★★★★★

I started watching 2001 at 4:37 pm, GMT -2, BRST.

I'm currently eating a Butter Toffee, musing over my decision to view this in my room for peace and quiet, considering the living room TV is much bigger. Well, I rather not be interrupted.

It's my first time ever viewing 2001 from start to finish, and although I believe it doesn't show in my face right now, I'm very excited to finally watch something I should have years ago.

Of course I knew that opening song. And these images seem like they are from another planet, like Mars or something. But with the cute monkeys.

0:09
The monkeys don't seem so cute anymore.

0:11
These guys definitely need a chill pill. They're acting like I will when Leonardo DiCaprio wins that Oscar.

0:15
Haunting score.

0:17
I was waiting for that specific monkey. Chills, chills all over.

For some strange reason, I find it very unnerving to watch monkeys eat meat.

0:19
Fights are also unnerving.

0:20
OH I LOVE THIS SONG. And space. Yes. "The Space Danube".

0:25
I like the seat-corridor height difference.

0:28
There's always the woman all dressed in pink. Oh wait, womEn. Glad we don't dress like that.

0:29
"Christian name".

Want those pink chairs.

0:37
The plot thickens. Oh, and nice food.

0:38
W-what. Lady, you'll drop your food!

0:41
Ooooh. What a nice landing pod. Reminds me of a lotus flower.

0:43
Their ship seemed so tiny.

U.S. flag, as always.

0:49
That feeling of being utterly alone in space.

0:50
Now I'm hungry. Got any ham? Just kidding, I'm vegetarian.

0:54
Oooooooooooh. You!

0:55
This music is TOO disturbing.

0:56
What. What. Whaaaat.

Okay, I'm getting something to eat. Hold on tight, astronauts.

0:57
Okay, I'm back. Aaaand this ship reminds me of an octopus swimming in deep waters for no good reason.

0:58
People could make a never-ending .gif of this guy running.

This bent my head.

1:01
Of course. "HAL". I knew Interstellar got more things from this movie than I thought.

1:02
Incapable of error? Right. Unnerving again.

1:07
Very nice drawing.

1:08
Beautiful eyes.

1:10
Way to freak me out again, HAL.

1:12
This red astronaut suit is the coolest.

1:15
To be breathing in the same rhythm as he is, without even realizing it at first.

1:21
"Sorry about this little snag, fellas". No.

1:22
His eyes get me every time. And I'm not talking about HAL's.

1:27
Now I'm talking about HAL's. For sure. Unnerving.

1:33
OH. MY. GOD. ABOVE. This was all too fast. I was not ready.

1:36
The silence hurts my ears. The noise also hurts my ears.

1:39
NOPE NOPE NOPE NOPE NOPE.

1:40
NO. NO. NO. OH MY FLIPPIN-

1:41
Oh you sneaky little-

1:45
Though decision.

1:49
Whew, I had forgotten how to breathe.

1:52
Lies lies lies. All lies.

1:53
MY. MIND IS GOING. THAT'S WHAT.

1:54
Thank goodness you said "yes". I'd like to hear it as well.

1:57
I keep forgetting how to breathe. And now this hell song again. Way to go making me feel better.

2:01
The planets align.

2:03
What, in the name of HAL, is going on.

My mind is being bent.

I hurts. I can feel it. I can feel it.

2:04
Oh my Zeus. What is this.

2:06
I'm even starting to see things in these things. Was I supposed to start seeing things in the things?

"Look, and that one looks like a sheep!"

2:12
What.

Double What.

Triple What.

2:14
NOW IS NOT THE TIME TO EAT.

That's right. Stop it.

2:15
Don't chew at me. Rude.

2:17
Glad to see others do the same stupid things I do. I swear I didn't break that glass, mom-

Oh wait time for another What.

2:18
OH MY GOD GO HOME ALREADY GEEZ. WAY TO FREAK ME OUT AGAIN.

2:20
OK movie, we understand. Your magnitude is above us all, please slow down now. PLEASE.

WHAT. IT'S OVER? WHAT NO. WAIT YOU CAN'T. NO. COME BACK. OH MY FLIPPIN'.

2:21

Yeah, I'll probably never ever hear the Blue Danube just for chills ever again.

Ever.

I'm going to get some water.

2:28:51
Yeah, now it's definitely over. Alongside my sanity.

Now I'll call it "The Space Danube".

.:.:.:.:.:.:.:.:.

"Okay, fellas" as that random dude at that random point in this random (not so random) movie would have said.

What. The. Hell.

First things first, I wrote those things while watching the movie. All I did after finishing was fix the (many) typos and correct anything that sounded unclear (like, everything still does but that's THE MOVIE'S PROBLEM, so back off).

I really liked this movie (really), but that may not really come through my very eloquent "review". Near the end I was losing my oxygen and my reason, so I'm sorry about that if you read up to this point. If you didn't, well, I guess you'll never know I was sorry.

After watching The Hateful Eight yesterday and this today, I'll do my best to steer clear from movies for a few days.

Too much is too much.

PS: Now I know why all those movies juggle with the same ideas. They got it from here. Interstellar, I'm looking at you. Wall-E, don't try to hide, now I see where you got THAT idea from. I'm not a kid anymore. I'm no longer impressed. That's right. Feel ashamed for yourself. Good.
