A “Close Reading” of Stanley Kubrick’s “2001: A Space Odyssey” | West Coast Odysseus Preamble* A few weeks ago and for the first time I watched Stanley Kubrick’s 1968 movie 2001: A Space Odyssey in segments on Youtube. It made such a powerful impression on me that I immediately bought the DVD. I also found the Wikipedia webpage on the movie; I skipped the plot summary, but wanted to read about the reception of the movie, and was pleased to see that it was considered the best movie of all time by one critical journal, and usually places in the “top ten” lists of others. I have not yet watched the special features on my disk, nor have I done any research at all on the movie apart from what I mentioned above. The scale of 2001 is worthy of its scope: the universe, and the development of humanity in this universe; the playback time corresponds to this magnitude of scale, for the movie runs to 148 minutes in length. The beginning of 2001: A Space Odyssey is a lengthy one, with scary organ music playing for about three minutes; the entire screen is dark during this time.

Did You Hate ‘Prometheus’? Watch A 4-Minute Long Hate Fest I loved Ridley Scott’s Prometheus. Shit, I’ve watched it twice now on Blu-ray, along with nearly all of the extra features. At this point, I will never be convinced to join the haters. But the haters exist, and rightfully so. Below we’ve added a 4-minute long video that attempts to point out everything wrong with the Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Charlize Theron and Idris Elba starrer. Roz Chast Pay it forward Pay it forward is an expression for describing the beneficiary of a good deed repaying it to others instead of to the original benefactor. The concept is old, but the phrase may have been coined by Lily Hardy Hammond in her 1916 book In the Garden of Delight. "Pay it forward" is implemented in contract law of loans in the concept of third party beneficiaries. Specifically, the creditor offers the debtor the option of paying the debt forward by lending it to a third person instead of paying it back to the original creditor. This contract may include the provision that the debtor may repay the debt in kind, lending the same amount to a similarly disadvantaged party once they have the means, and under the same conditions. Debt and payments can be monetary or by good deeds. History Pay it forward was used as a key plot element in the denouement of a New Comedy play by Menander, Dyskolos (a title which can be translated as "The Grouch"). Robert Heinlein's contribution
