Critic Review - New York Times

These things no longer surprise or tantalize us as they once did. In a very short time, science-fiction films have developed their own jargon that's now become a part of the grammar.

What the hell? I don't wish death upon you old timer, but you sure are pretty senial nevertheless. Way to ruin an otherwise perfect score.

What an incoherent review. Especially since you are basing this movie on its successors, when Alien is what made the sci-fi genre so popular.

what? I agree with you this guy is a Hack but what? 2001 is what made the sci fi genre popular, star wars is what made it more popular, and then dozens of other movies along with aliens such as close encounters of the third kind also helped make sci fi popular.

actually that wasn't neccisarily a negative review. I wonder why RT considers it a rotten? BTW, apparently he's been dead since 2000.

He is not, he like to play and pretend he is one, but obviously the things he say show the opposite.
