David Copperfield- by Charles Dickens starring “Harry Potter” as young Copperfield
I don’t know if many of you have seen Kubrick’s movie. It is done very differently than many films, there is not a lot of dialogue, scenes that seem to drag on forever and some pretty weird sounds to accompany it all. At one point there is this creepy chanting wailing noise going on for like 5 minutes… I asked Chuck to turn it down because it was scaring the baby (when really it was probably more about me being freaked out by it).
It is very philosophical, and Kubrick leaves many questions unanswered for the viewer to interpret. When it was over Chuck asked me if I got it.
“NO! I exclaimed, and I want some answers!”
Chuck talked about how he enjoys movies that make you think. I disagreed, I want everything spelled out for me… I even want that little scene after the credits roll that shows you an “update” of events. Like the wedding scene in Napoleon Dynamite.
The explanation still left me unsatisfied. I wanted to see an Alien dang it? And what good is this whole living forever technology that the Aliens discovered if only one Astronaut knows about it and he is currently a floating fetus in space? And what a miserable life to grow old and die alone in a big room on Jupiter (BORING!!!) And the monolith… could the Aliens see through it?
