STILL Can’t Figure Out What The Monolith Means

It’s been 13 years since 2001, and these monkeys still can’t make sense of it all. And, hey, Hal? How ’bout those pod bay doors, buddy?

  1. I’m sorry, Dave. I’m afraid I can’t do that.

  2. I want a gif of the flying bebeh minkee at :53.

    And now the song Bicycle Built for Two is stuck in my brain folds.

  3. 13 years? How about 46 years since the movie came out — I don’t think anyone ever got the monolith…

  4. The flying bebeh minkee was fantastic!!!! 🙂

    Never met a primate I didn’t like. Except for some hoomins, of course. 🙂

    The movie made a little more sense if you read the book first. Just a little. It’s still a masterpiece of the cinematographer’s art, though. No CGI, just matte paintings, models and camera angles.

  6. And a whole lota trained monkeys.
