Look at picrelated. There it is. Your chance to enlighten the plebeians, possibly spark the artistic fervour inside someone who may not know their potential. Convince Frances that she's wrong! Write as if your comment will be publicly seen on facebook under your own name.
Is there a point to this comment?
I'll admit I'm lazy and it isn't impossible to convince anyone.
But the chances of succeeding are low enough with a person like in OP's related for it to not be worth it.
It's a lot like choosing your friends. Sure you could try to be friends with everyone. But some people aren't worth the effort.
Most actually, but that bit is an opinion.
Frances, you can't argue on the one hand that people drawing conclusions about 2001 are making "several leaps of faith" and then in the very next paragraph make the wholly unsubstantiated claim that a movie about two men and a robot somehow houses a homosexual character without at least being aware of the irony.
Just because someone in high school patted you on the head for regurgitating what is easily the laziest and most intellectually dishonest form of critical analysis there is doesn't mean you can keep parroting it every single time you read, watch, or listen to absolutely anything. It gets old, fast.
And before you go talking about the monolith as a phallus or the ship as a phallus or any other vaguely linear object with two parallel lines as a phallus, remember that Freudian psychoanalysis is the most reductive and laughable form of film criticism.

Interstellar would be the best movie ever if it wasn't for the absolute shit ending. That ocean planet scene always gets me
>Those aren't mountains
Yes that's true, but I still count it as scifi because the whole thing takes place in an alien habitat floating in the middle of some random galaxy and extraterrestrial parasites use the bodies of humans as hosts. It's pretty cool desu brian
lmfao that was fucking awful
It's as if the writers have never encountered a human being before? How would you not be shitting yourself the second you see a tsunami coming towards you? That awful "oh I tripped guess I'm not gonna make it", random faggot getting saved at the last second, and McConaughey going "THOSE aren't mountains!" so far ahead of the actual action that it kills any possible suspense. Thank you for affirming my belief that the movie is pleb shit
their was no emotional impact from that scene; the horror of being killed by a hundreds of foot tall wave - which is a common fear I would imagine of anyone who's been to the ocean or at least seen a vivid depiction of it - was totally absent, Anne Hathaway was hilariously blasé about the entire event
Sorry I made fun of your favorite movie though friend, it's never fun to be called dumb :(((
>being called autistic by
>equating that with being called dumb
Kek's were had.
Sorry you can't enjoy a buildup. Have you never talked to yourself like Matthew does in that scene? Seemed pretty normal to me.
Admittedly I see your point about the relative lack of panic, but you got to remember, these people are trained astronauts (well mostly in regards to in the movie, but still professionals) and as such can remain calm in extremely stressful situations more than you or I.
The idea of a massive wave coming towards you is great, I just think they handled it really poorly. The producers could afford to make a realistic looking wave, that's all you can really say. Literally any movie with a decent budget could shoehorn in a tidal wave scene and it would look really neat
a much better turn of phrase would have been something like,
Frances, you can't argue on the one hand that people drawing conclusions about 2001 are making "several leaps of faith" and then in the very next paragraph make the wholly unsubstantiated claim that a movie about two men and a robot definitely does not involve a homosexual relationship.
My understanding is that Frances argues there DOES exist a homosexual character within 2001, so replace "homosexual" with "heterosexual" in your post and you're closer.
Also fuck you I'm drunk I wasn't typing a thesis.
Honestly, I kinda agree with the person in the picture. I absolutely hated 2001. Hated it. It wasn't brilliant by any means, other than by humanizing a machine, and machinizing humans. HAL had all the emotion in that story, and that's genius and all, but the film was so dull and boring for me.
If someone can get me on page with that film, I will give him/her all the internet cookies.
