Re: Book Vs Film


It doesn't MAKE any sense.

Kubrik didn't understand it - he made it up as he went along.

Clarke didn't understand it - he just wrote what happened in the film with some guesswork added in because "Monkeys. Nothing. Nothing. Nothing. Space [...] Nothing. Nothing. Nothing. Space. Computer goes ape. Baby. Bad Trip." doesn't sell very well once word gets around.

Either you haven't seen the film, or you haven't read the book, or you haven't seen the film or read the book - you're just trying to impress people.

Because NO-ONE understands it because it doesn't make ANY sense - there's NO sense TO it.
