44 - 2001: A Space Odyssey


Welcome to Episode 44 of We Watched A Thing.

This week we're crafting hammers from the bones of our enemies, fighting evil red lights, and somehow turning into babies, all while discussing Stanley Kubrick's 1968 sci-fi epic '2001: A Space Odyssey'

2001: A Space Odyssey is a 1968 epic science fiction film produced and directed by Stanley Kubrick. The screenplay was written by Kubrick and Arthur C. Clarke, and was inspired by Clarke's short story "The Sentinel". A novel also called 2001: A Space Odyssey, written concurrently with the screenplay, was published soon after the film was released. The film, which follows a voyage to Jupiter with the sentient computer HAL after the discovery of a mysterious black monolith affecting human evolution, deals with themes of existentialism, human evolution, technology, artificial intelligence, and the possibility of the existence of extraterrestrial life.
