This year marks the 50th anniversary of Stanley Kubrick's cinematic masterpiece 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY
On this episode of TRIO SIMPATICO David and Joshua are joined by returning guest DANIELLE RANDLES to discuss our recent viewing of this catalyst of science fiction film making.
During a limited re-release of the movie in select IMAX theaters we gathered a TRIO SIMPATICO contingent to take in the cosmic splendor of this Kubrick classic on the big screen! During this episode we share our thoughts about seeing the movie in IMAX for the first time and how that experience differs from previous viewings.
But we don't simply end our discussion there! We also take this opportunity to talk about the little-known cinematic follow up to 2001, 1984's 2010: THE YEAR WE MAKE CONTACT directed by Peter Hyams. We discuss the tremendous burden of this sequel, the impossibility of matching its predecessor, and the genuinely great things about this completely different but worthy film.
Plus we touch upon the companion novels by Arthur C. Clarke, how to make the name Keir Dullea sexy, and so much MORE! Listen now!
Summer is nearly over, there are only a handful of days left until the start of Autumn, and the TRIO SIMPATICO summer hiatus is officially at an end!
After a lengthy break from the podcast we have much to report about WHAT WE DID THIS SUMMER!
Like a back-to-school essay but with more swearing and in podcast form, David Tavolier and Joshua Witsaman return to catch you up on what they've been doing and they recommend some movies, books, video games, and even other podcasts which they've been enjoying!
PLUS on this special episode our TRIO has been doubled into a SEXTET (heh heh, sex)!
Recording the episode after a rousing game of the STAR WARS RPG the co-hosts are joined by the members of their roleplaying group DAN HENSLEY, DAVE LANGSTAFF, BLAIR SCOTT, and TRIO SIMPATICO legal counsel BRIAN ASHTON! All of whom share their exciting adventures from the summer as well!
This episode is packed to the brim! Enjoy!
