Austin Powers 3 was extremely disappointing.

Well Chris to be fair, thats the way they make movie series these days. LOTR and Star wars were all made pretty much at the same time

I just found a quote on www.Boogle.com  that illustrates my point about Anticipation well

Resurrecting old threads is fun!

2001: A Space Odyssey. Oh-my-freaking-heck.

All my fellow geek friends were like, "C'mon! It's, like, the number 2 sci-fi masterpiece behind Star Wars! It's amazing! It will blow your mind.

And I believed them. The series of events went as follows:

*rents movie*
*inserts into VHS*
*recoils in horror periodically*
*slips into boredom-induced coma periodically*
*watches 20 minute acid trip in widescreen*
*returns tape to Blockbuster*

VERDICT: Three hours of my life I will never get back.

On a happier note, one movie that looked god-awful and ended up being really cool was The Last Starfighter. That and WarGames are the two best gamer flicks ever.

I've never seen 2001, it's been on my  got to see out of mad curiosity list, judging by that report, I'll move it up, to see if it really is that awful.

I went in with the same mindset (one friend told me it was bad), and lo and behold: vomitrocius! No amount of therapy could restore me to my pre-"Space Odyssey" state of existence.

You have been warned.

I'm just gonna watch it, as I've heard differing reports about, both good and bad.

Honestly, I would do the same thing if I were in your shoes. There are too many references to "Space Odyssey" in movies and TV to skip this one, even if it is kinda lame. Just today I saw some candey commercial that used the famous five-notes from "Thus Sprach Zarathrustra" used to such good effect in 2001. You know:

Daaaah....
Daaaaaahhh...
DAAAAAAAAAAAAH!!!
DAH-DAH!!!

I personnaly like 2001. I own the DVD and watch it every once in a while. When I was a kid, I was asking my mom every week to rent it... I think I saw it about 100 times.

It's a question of taste. I never liked star wars pretty much. In fact, I went to see the first trilogy in their last theatrical release to please some of my friends and... I got bored so fast!

2001 is about style and mystery. Lots of mystery.
Maybe I love this movie because I saw it so many times as a kid ... But I love it anyway.

Which is why, if my movie script is ever made, I will demand to have a section in the contract that states that only 5 seconds of one scene that doesn't give away anything about the plot shall be the ONLY trailer in the whole course of its promotion.
