Thread Name: Worst Movie ever
Subject: RE: Worst Movie ever
I saw "2001 - A Space Idiocy" twice when it first came out (it was in a theater on a Navy base and only cost me 50cents each time, but it's still a dollar that I'd like back), and I didn't get it. My older brother explained it to me, and I still didn't get it. Years later, a co-worker explained it to me, but I still didn't get it. Then I sat down and watched it on TV - the TCM channel - and, guess what? I still didn't get it. And since they've decided that Jupiter is probably composed of liquid gas, there's a good chance no one will be landing on it anytime soon, so it all seems kind of pointless now. It's on my private list of bad movies, but I'll respect anyone's right to consider it a classic, since so many people do. And don't try to explain it to me. When it comes time to die, I'll probably want that time back.
