Old Classics

Three weeks ago I learned about this movie called 2001 Space Odyssey. Like many of you who are reading this blog, I didn't know what this movie was until Mr. Sanders told me it one was of the greatest sci-fi movies of all time. I watched the full movie in Youtube (i can't put it in this blog because its too long).

The movie is unlike anything you have seen in modern sci-fi movies and is innovative creative and even for the time it was made ( more that 10 years ago) it had some good effects. The story plot is about a black monolith that appeared in space. The government sent a group of people to investigate the monolith commanded by intelligent computer. The innovative part of this movie are all the different scenes it shows. One moment it is the prehistoric era and the next is the modern time. The plot is very deep and has many plot twist that will keep you at the edge of your seat.

I believe that modern movies like Transformers should worry less about special effects and more about the content in the movie.

What is your favorite movie?

  1. Now that I realize it, I think the movie WALLE copied some of the things from this. Like the robot taking over the ship is the steering wheel in WALL.E and also they use that epic music in one of the scenes. This movie influenced a lot of other sci-fi movies.

  2. I remeber watching this video in Mr. Rutherfords class. The beginning of the movie is funny, especially since you don't know what is happening until later on in the movie. But the movie was really interesting to see.
