I downloaded in HD but could not bear it... for first 20 mins that apes and another 20 min..well I don't remember but that was damn slow, at last I pressed shift+Del

Hope I have not missed something
2001 is a milestone in special effects/ What Kubrick did in 1968 set the standard for a lot of people who made movies later. :)

I must confess it is not everyone's cup of tea. If you can bear it, then it is a great classic science fiction movie. I liked it a lot when I saw it first, but watching it again was painfully tough. Heck, you could use that movie as a screensaver for your computer (which is what Windows 98 did, the space screensaver did have 2001: A Space Odyssey's elements). :)

I recommend you watch 2010: The Year We Made Contact. It is the sequel of 2001. And much faster as well. :)

Slow or quick death might be the debate topic :D

You my boy, have definitely missed a great (or rather not so) climax.
2001 is not a movie that you can watch to get "entertained". But it takes a great deal of brain and imagination at your level to be a part of the scenario of the events happening in the movie.

My apologies if you thought you can be entertained from 2001. But for that part of mine, which have the desire inside me to be an Astronaut, knows, how silent and yet full of noises the emptiness of Space can be. The claustrophobic nature of the vast infinity of Universe can only be felt by people who are willing to spend at least some time in voids.

For that I really appreciate 2001. Don't know about others, but I was watching it alone in the dark and in the silence of the night. And I had been tempted to turn on the lights, when the climax was approaching. Yeah, it was THAT scary.

Now don't run to recover the film you deleted in an attempt to try to find the monsters which made me fill with horror. Since no offence, but you just might not be able to find the actual fear I am talking about.

My klan was merely discussing how to make him enjoy the experience. Might seem like a murder conspiracy to Hitchcock fans. :p

To all who liked the film 2001:A Space Odyssy :), were you able to understand all what was shown in the film at the start and the end?
I had read the novel already before watching the film. So it was easy for me to understand what director was trying to say. But I think it is very abstractly filmed. It is not very easy to understand (especially the end) to the viewer who has no idea about its subject.
I am not a fan of the film per se, but I appreciate the impact it has made in the film history.

^I plan to read the book when I get through my other sci-fi books. I did read the beginning and it put a lot of things into perspective.

I admit I wasn't able to understand quite a number of things in the film.
Looks like a book it due to me, to be read!

Blood Simple 7/10

Good.
There are surprises and twists and kinda makes you shout WTF is happening!!!
Try it, u won't regret.

Break ke baad 6/10

"Tanu Weds Manu" was better. Very slow treatment was given to the movie. First half is slowest and untidy. Second half is better.

Breach, true story, good story and very good movie. Course recommended.

Breach (2007) - IMDb

IMO Breach is very well presented.It proceeds at its own pace but still keeps you wondering what will happen next.One of those movies that don't mess up a good watch with gunshots.
I actually stumbled into watching half of Breach on Star Movies and just had to download it later to see what happens.
