AMERICAN PIE – It’s pretty stupid and cruel on the whole, but then again, high school was pretty stupid and cruel too. It popularized the term MILF, and lead to people actually referring to themselves as MILFs without understanding just how sad that sounds. It did bring us the phrase “One time, at band camp…” so it’s not be all bad.
2001: A Space Odyssey – Apes evolve to murderers. Computers evolve to murderers as well. Film as form over function, it’s a beautiful film that leaves a lot open to interpretation with moon bases and space babies. I’m sure that Roger Ebert describes it better, but it’s a stunning film that would be nice to see on a large screen – next time TIFF Lightbox has the 70mm print out of storage.
