2001: A Space Odyssey Extreme


I watched 2001: A Space Odyssey with some friends last night. All two and a half hours. It’s like the Moby-Dick of films. Classic, but in sore need of a good editor. While I don’t regret watching it, it strikes me as one of those movies you don’t really need to see more than once every five to ten years.

Also, I really want to see a remake. You know how every few years Hollywood predictably makes an awful remake of some old movie? With extra explosions and extremeness? 2001, you’re up. While most remade movies are made painfully hard to watch, 2001 starts off on the very edge of being painfully hard to watch. Nowhere to go but up! What follows are several of my amazing ideas. Spoiler alert. Movie producers, get on this!

“Die HAL!” “I’m sorry Dave, I can’t do that for you.”

I’m only half joking. Tell me you wouldn’t want to watch a modern, no holds barred B-grade remake like this, at least once. At least for the hilarity value.
