Classic Movie Time

As part of her Netflix experience, Mom has been subjecting broadening Corwin by exposing him to classic movies. The latest in the series has been “2001”:. We watched the first half one evening, but stopped at the intermission because it was getting late. A couple of weeks later we fired it up for the finish. Corwin claimed that he didn’t quite understand what was going on, especially the last 20 minutes or so of the movie. I helped out by saying, right after the star baby looks at the Earth, “The End”!. Corwin looked at me with a “what are you going on about?” look but that was, of course, the end of the movie. Corwin reacted to this dawning realization with even more desparate “what happened? That didn’t make any sense! I don’t understand!”. Bwahahaha! Worth the time spent watching.

I subjected Keith to 2001 awhile back since it’s one of my all time favorites. He didn’t get it either. I mean really, what’s not to get? :) So we read the book together. 2001 holds even more special significance to me since that was the last book I read together with Keith.
