Best SF film ever
By Gruic on March 11, 2018

This film is just perfect.

And some special effects are just better than what we can see today. For example, my favourite scene : the pen flying on the air. Kubrick used a very creative way to make it fly. He used a glass and put the pen in it. That's how the lady can take it with his fingers.

Today, people would use bad computer effect where you can see how it is false. With computers, the cinema turns lazy.

One of the most boring movies I've ever seen
By Carry9 on May 21, 2018

I watched this movie, but I had to watch it in 4 cuts because I kept dozing off.
The different sequences were much too long and too repetitive.

I get it that a lot of people see this movie as a masterpiece, but it did not convince me.
