In the Uptown Theatre, Washington D.C on the 2nd of April, 1968 - Stanley Kubrick premiered the epic space film, "2001:A Space Odyssey" (1968). It is clear that this film is one of the greatest films ever made with most people citing it as one of the greatest examples of the Greek/Shakespearean Tragedy in space. It is a brilliant film and a true cinematic experience to watch. Personally, I've seen it a few times and even after watching it a few times, it is still just as overwhelming as it has always been.
For years, it has been considered as the epitome of Sci-Fi/Epic Drama and has won multiple accolades in the legacy of its release. At 52 years since it was first seen by a mass audience, there are many things in this era still that we can learn from "2001: A Space Odyssey" (1968). I have watched this film twice over the past ten to fifteen years and I want to show you why.
Dramatic novels are always the best, I think. I love the mix of emotion alongside these wrenching stories of survival, love and death. It's a brilliantly gushing way to use your reading time. There are many, many dramatic books out there, but I really wanted to go through my top ten most amazing of all of them...
I think I've identified the kind of literature I'm reading more and that's Golden Age British Crime Fiction. However, I'm still concentrating on keeping myself attached to reality by reading nonfiction. Unfortunately enough, I haven't really had the taste for fantasy or YA recently as I normally would - which is bothering me. I don't want to think I have grown out of it because they are some of my favourites. However, I won't read something I'm not in the mood to read. I only ever read this much for entertainment.
"10 Things I Hate About You" (1999) was not only the ultimate teen film whilst many of us were growing up, but was also the break-out role for the incredible and versatile actor, the late Heath Ledger. Not his first role, it is his biggest to that date. There is something really endearing about this film and although I despise teen rom-coms, I absolutely adore this film. It is so different to most others because there is a serious depth to it and it is based on Shakespeare's "The Taming of the Shrew".
