Day 21 – The Most Overrated Movie

2001: A Space Odyssey

I don’t really know where to start with this one. I have only watched it once for a university class, and I still can’t make heads or tails of it. This movie gets raved about a lot, and there were parts I did like about it, but I don’t think it really deserves the universal praise. I’m sure we all have a film that we don’t understand why everyone else likes it. This was just weird…and really long. Even when there’s dialogue, and the bit with HAL kicks in, I was still bored, and couldn’t pay attention. The film is meant to be a visual thing sure, but I don’t know, something about this movie just rubs me the wrong way.

Maybe it’s space baby.

Nightmare fuel?

Anyway, this is my pick for this prompt. It’s a highly rated movie, but I just don’t get it ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

What do you guys think of 2001: A Space Odyssey?

What’s a film that you think is overrated?

Also! Just a quick update, tomorrow (I’ll be starting the process tonight though) I’m moving to a self hosted site, so things will be changing! Hopefully I do it right, but who knows? Maybe I’ll mess it up, maybe it’ll go smoothly, maybe I’ll really mess up and be gone for a few days. Who knows?? We’ll all just have to wait and see!
