What's it about: Ummmm. something about a black monolith and a malfunctioning supercomuter. The plot is very boring.
What I thought about it: Too much time listening to the same music while watching a spaceship/ other thing in motion (extremely slow moving). No actual plot like the writer of the plot started with a valid idea and then ran out of stuff to say and 90% of the movie is filler. Unless you want to watch 30 minutes of chimps screeching just to start. This is highly NOT recomended.
Why I picked it up: It is referenced a lot and I thought that it would be a good movie since it is referenced a lot.
I would suggest this for: So you get the references.
