The Weekly Stuff #242 – Revisiting 2001: A Space Odyssey at 50, Incredibles 2, Splatoon 2 Octo, and more!

Episode Summary

Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey turns 50 this year, and to celebrate, we revisit one of the greatest films of all-time for an in-depth discussion.

Episode Notes

Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey turns 50 this year, and in celebration, Warner Bros has been touring a brand new 70mm print of the classic film around the United States, which arrived here in Denver last week. It’s a marvelous presentation of a masterful film, and we thought we’d take the opportunity to dive deep with one of the greatest films ever made, in one of the most enjoyable and engaging movie discussions we’ve ever had on the podcast. Jonathan also reviews Incredibles 2 and the Splatoon 2 Octo Expansion on Nintendo Switch, while Sean talks about finally catching up with Rise of the Tomb Raider and revisiting Dragon Ball FighterZ, and we both talk about a few bits of post-E3 news.

Enjoy! And on a very different current events note, if you would like to assist the families currently being torn apart at America’s southern border, as we acknowledge at the top of the show, I’ve made a donation at this link – which spreads your contribution out amongst multiple agencies doing crucial work to help these broken families – and would recommend you do so as well, if you are at all able: https://actblue.com/donate/kidsattheborder
