BLOG – 2001 A Space Odyssey

2001: A Space Odyssey is super old, and is in need of a remake. Below, I’ve listed some changes that should be made for the new version:

  1. Enough with the slow paced music and contemplative space shots. The soundtrack of the new movie should consist entirely of contemporary pop music.
  2. Every ape should be played by Andy Serkis. This one is obvious.
  3. HAL needs a CGI body and an articulate face. The blank expressions of “famous” movie antagonists (like HAL and Darth Vader) has really detracted from the performances. HAL should look more like Ultron from Avengers: Age of Ultron. I think we can all agree that a villain needs to have weird moving robot lips and teeth to be menacing.
  4. The movie needs more fighting than the original. The story is about the evolution of man, yet only the early humans are shown killing each other. What better way to show human evolution than to show bigger and better guns??
