Flim Weakly Review- 2001: a space odyssey


Jean Luc Godard once said “Film is truth, 24 frames per second.” Now, I don’t know what that means, but I do know it’s wrong. Film cannot be truth, because it’s made of film, and truth is made of emotions or something. I also don’t know who Jean Luc Godard is, or what 24 frames have to do with it, as frames are usually found in Asda, for pictures and photos to sit in.

Although, actually, films are made of pictures, aren’t they? So maybe that’s what he meant, in which case, he’s very clever, even if he’s from somewhere that isn’t where I’m from.

So, what, in fact, is a film?

Well, it’s a thing you go to see when it’s too early to see it on tv. It even comes out before the dvd. And it costs three times as much as watching it for free, which is really stupid. Unless it has nudity in it.

But not every film does.

“Bambi” didn’t.

Neither did “Spaceballs” and that has ‘balls’ in the title.

Welcome to FLIM WEAKLY.

I was told that this film had its 50th birthday last week, which is weird, because films aren’t real, so how are they born?

2001: a space odyssey

Some monkeys play with a big, singing, lego block ages ago. One of them has a bone which must be made of Transformers or something because it turns into a space thing….

Anyway, the monkeys go to space and lose their fur and talk to a lightbulb who is all evil and stuff. Then the bulb goes mental and kills everyone except he doesn’t, because one gets away and enters “Tron” for 10 minutes, before becoming a baby like at the end of that Brad Pitt movie.

Marks out of 10…
