The copy that I saw in the theatre was probably pretty beat up by the time I got to see it. I was still pretty young, so my dad went with me.

I can't imagine what he thought of it!
Aw, he's no fun, he fell right over.

Lots of really interesting trivia about the flick on imdb.com

They even have the full instructions for using a zero-G toilet! That Kubrick, what an eye for detail, eh?

By the way, currently watching "Return of the Living Dead," a fun and funny zombie flick from the 80s.

oooo....they released it in 70mm in the sixites? I was assuming that was a later reprint.

I saw it first run, too, but it was at a dinky local theater - 35mm only.

I just watched part of Con Air. I feel like that movie secretly wishes it was made in the 80's.

70mm. On a semi-circular screen that wrapped around you from periphery to periphery.
When you first see Discovery, it(she?) enters the screen from the left, and doesn't stop until she stretches from one end to the other. The 60's equivalent of the opening scene in Star Wars, where the Imperial battleship enters from the top of the screen and just keeps coming, and coming, and coming.
You can only imagine what the light show scene can do to the brain of an under 10 year-old kid. I totally blame that movie for my fascination with technology, computers, sci-fi, and hallucinogenics.

OHhhhh, Duuude!

IMDB said wrote:Much like The Wizard of Oz (1939) and "Dark Side of the Moon", it is said that the Pink Floyd song "Echoes" from the album "Meddle" can be perfectly synchronized with the "Jupiter & Beyond the Infinite" segment of the film.

Smokensmoke said wrote:Get real baked, and either watch it on youtube(in 3 parts), or sync it up yourself (just start echoes right when "Jupiter..." appears). Echoes is the last track on their album Meddle. Enjoy it!

I do believe I was on acid the first time I watched that film (and several times afterward). :paranoid:

Funnily enough, I recently watched 28 Weeks Later. That flick sucked. But then I thought 28 Days Later sucked too. Way overrated.

Ok, IMO Slumdog Millionaire is way overrated. It was ok, but nothing to get all excited about.

I think I liked it exponentially more because I've been to India and was floored by how well they captured so many aspects.

A couple of weeks ago, I saw House Bunny, Burn After Reading (again), and Shooter, all in one day/night. -_- Then the next day I saw Quantum of Solace.

House Bunny: less clever, less funny version of Mean Girls and Legally Blonde.

Burn After Reading: still good and probably makes more sense the second time watching it.

Shooter: okay, but nothing amazing.

Quantum of Solace: okay, but nothing amazing. Confusing, actually. Although watching Daniel Craig is always such fun. :D

I bought the special edition just so I could have the alternative ending, too bad they only put protected WMV on there.

Vicki Christina Barcelona.

I'm partial to Woody Allen, and I did enjoy it--but it has really annoying narration, and I generally don't care for narrators.

Just finished watching Wall-E. Such a sweet movie. Looking online, I was surprised to see that the woman who did Eve's voice was just a Pixar staffer who was just thrown into the studio to record some audio to serve as placeholding, but that the director liked the recordings so much he decided to use 'em in the movie.

Now watching Godzilla, the trashy 90s Emmerich Matthew Broderick version.
