The book actually explained most of the shit. Stanley Kubrik, the director of the movie, barely explained shit and made it confusing as fuck

Long story an ancient race of beings, who have transcended physical form and have unbelievably advanced technologies, visit primal Earth and place a monolith in the forests of ancient Africa. When man's ape ancestor interacts with it, they are flash-educated with very primitive, but essential skills, while also slightly advancing their evolution. We see this manifested when the Apes use a bone as a club, the first tool. The film doesn't, but the book implies other monoliths were placed throughout history, providing important skills, including agriculture.

Flash forward to 2001, where humanity has successfully evolved and has achieved space flight. Mysteriously, another monolith is found on the surface of the moon during a mining operation. When interacted with, this monolith doesn't provide knowledge of any kind. Instead, it is a sort of beacon, used to signal that humanity has achieved space-flight to the ancient-beings. This activates a bizarre anomaly above Jupiter (Saturn in the book), and a mission is sent to research it.

Flash forward a little over a year, and Discovery One, a space shuttle, it nearing Jupiter. Frank and Dave, a scientist and the pilot, have woken up from cry sleep a hit early to prepare the ship. When there is an error with the ship's radar, the ships computer, HAL, tells them they need to go out to fix it. Additonally, HAL has been acting abnormally, even asking if he has emotions or if he is sentient. When the two find nothing wrong with the radar, they suspect HAL is malfunctioning. They also receive a message from Earth stating other HAL units have begun to malfunction. In a similar fashion. They confront HAL while still outside the ship, who insists there is an issue and instructs them to replace the radar to be safe. The turn of their communication to HAL, and discuss shutting HAL down if he is wrong. HAL, using cameras and the ability to read lips that he developed observing humans, he determines that they wish to "kill him". When Frank leaves the mini-shuttle they used to get to the Radar, HAL takes control of the shuttle and rams it into Frank, killing him. He also disables the life-support system, killing the rest of the crew. When confronted by Dave (whose suit was damaged in the impact), HAL reasons that since he was made by humans, then any errors in HAL's programming is Human Error, and thus they are dangerous. Dave braves the vacuum of space briefly, in order to return to the ship in order to get a working space-suit. When he gets it, HAL realizes there is nothing more he can do, and begs Dave not to "kill him". He sings that song as he dies, as playing that song was the first task a computer was given, implying he really did have human emotions.

Dave continues the mission alone, arriving at Jupiter. He receives a message detailing the monolith and the mystery surrounding it. When he approaches the anomaly, the gravity pulls the ship in, and Dave finds himself being transported through time and space (that rainbow sequence). In the book, he sees other shuttles, implying the beings have been doing the same for other species. He passes out, and awakes in a pleasant white room, where he rapidly goes through his lifespan, finding himself increasingly as ease, and growing tired. As he is about to fall asleep, now an old man a monolith appears by his bed, and when he touches it, he again finds himself trsnsported. This time, his body is destroyed and he is transformed into one of the beings who originally placed the monoliths. He is reborn as the Starchild, a bridge between humanity and the beings, to serve as an ambassador. He destroys an orbiting nuclear warhead, implying he is all-powerful.



Short story: 2001 is actually a good story if you know what the fuck is happening

The sequel is like this
In the sequel book, Dave uses his powers to visit important people in his life, so that the beings can learn about humanity through his interactions. He then begins to aid the beings by exploring the solar system, discovering life in Jupiter's atmosphere, and primitive life beneath the icy surface of its moon, Europa. He then interacts with a manned mission heading for   Jupiter to investigste the events of Bowman's mission (as he has not made his existence widely known) telling them what happened and telling them that they can visit any body in the system except for Europa. He then visits the hull of the old ship, which was returned to Jupiter, and reawaken HAL, turning his intelligence into a similar being as Dave, repairing his fractured sanity. They then place a monolith of Europa, and watch over the planet.

Flash forward into the far distant future. The species on Europa has become intelligent, nearing modern-day standards. Humanity has turned Jupiter into a second sun, which has warmed Europa's surface (apparently our system has become a weird binary system). Although the planet is tidally locked, so only one side is habitable. Humanity has colonized several planets, including two of Jupiter's other moons/planets, but has never landed a probe on Europa, as HAL and Dave have destroyed any that came close.

If you were wondering. Which you probably weren't.

I hope so.

He actually has a personality (he's a dick) that can be easily explained (he was discriminated against as a child for being half-human and he's technically insane because of an oxygen imbalance).

Or they could use him as a villain (for example, Sub-Mariner: The Depths is basically a horror comic with Namor as the monster).

I watched The Warriors tonight and, oh man, it's so good. The opening scene is great, showing all these different gangs gathering together. The acting ranges from pretty bad to okay, but it's pretty funny either way. Tons of great quotes to pull from the movie.

So why is X-Men: Last Stand so hated? Is it just because it deviates from the comics too much? I just watched it for the first time, and I thought it was good. Probably even like it more than the first movie (X2 is still better, obviously). Professor X dying was pretty shitty (can't say I care that Cyclops died, though), but the rest of it I thought was good.

Tv shows in The 50's
Everything isn't so bad.
Tv shows about the 50's.
Life is terrible, we are all unhappy and are being abused in some way shape or form.


TV shows in the 1960's
Acid Trip

TV shows about the 1960's
Acid Trip

Kind of just want a middle ground show about the 50's. Where not every fucking person dawns a skinny tie like it was the fucking style back then. Something interesting at some time without some sort of prejudice or forced agenda had to have happened in that entire decade.

The Cold War is great for period pieces, though I guess knowing that no bombs were dropped kind of takes the thrill out of everything.

Masters of Sex was interesting that was 50's. It had some forced agenda's, but in the end Zoom raised a kid with 2 lesbians and many laughs and good times were had.

The Americans is set during the Cold War, and is about two KGB spies living in America. I haven't started watching it yet, but I have seen parts and it's pretty good.

The Americans takes place during the 80s though, not the 50s. I'm not really a big history guy, so why do you want the 50s so badly?

let's look at this objectively. Sam is a big guy. the swordsname is heartsBANE. Sam protected a little child from evil men as Bane did in the jail. Sam was not allowed to bring Gilly to Oldtown and was worried he wouldn't be able to leave his friend gilly at his house if his father knew she was a wildling. In the same way Littlefinger told the masketta man Bane "he doesn't get to bring friends". But ultimately both were allowed to bring their friends and allowed their plans to continute going forth. It's clear Sam's biggest contribution will be after he dies he will be resurrected from the dead and in a daze will put on a mask as he becomes the BANE of the white walkers existence as Azor Ahai
tl;dr Sam will become Azor Ahai in Bane form

Aegon conquered with 3 adult dragons and when westeros wasn't unified
Dany has 3 teenage dragons and is going to attack when westeros, still, isn't unified. Although she'll magically have trained her dragons by the time she gets there because she can do literally anything. Aegon destroyed Harrenhal, I think her dragons can manage to do most of the fighting against armored soldiers. Plus, only the Westerlands, Reach, Stormlands and Eerie forces have armored knights, there's 5 other kingdoms that don't. Now that the Sand bitch rules Dorne she'll side with Dany cause girl power, Mace is lord of the Reach but his mom is he one doing everything, although she's old as fuck and will probably die, so Mace will bend the knee ASAP. Littlefinger runs the Eerie and knows he won't win against Dany

I just don't see how anyone on the seven kingdoms (besides the Ironborn, that one makes sense to me) will side with her. They great houses have their squabbles, but the Reach alone has as many troops as Dany. They brought 100,000 to support Renly against Stannis. And even when Olena dies, Mace won't betray the crown. His daughter is the queen. And since the Westerlands, the Crownlands, and the Stormlands are all pretty much controlled by either Tommen or Cersei atm it's obvious which side they'll choose. If he dies, which is very likely actually, then things might get rocky, because there isn't a clear successor for the throne, but many of the Realm's rulers were alive during the Mad King's reign, and probably wouldn't like another Targ marching in with an army of rapists and aiming to destroy Westerosi politics.

Even as a narative, I don't think she'll win, because I don't think GRRM is such a bad storyteller that he'd spend that much time on the Lannisters and court politics, and so clearly make out the Starks to be the good guys only to have the be either subjugated or destroyed by Dany in the remaining 2 books/1 allegedly season. Robb Stark spent two season fighting a war in Westeros, and he never even made it past the Westerlands.

The reach and dorne supported the Targs during the rebellion. Most of the stormlands probably hate the lannisters and most believe Tommen is a false Baratheon. The North will side with her "it was the dragons we bent the knee too and now the dragons are dead".

Mace will betray the crown if it was either that or to watch the Reach burn. Like I said, he's a pansy and will be the first to bend. Also I forgot to add that it'll likely with with Jon and Dany banging, bringing back the age old tradition of Targaryen incest. They did 2 seasons on Robb, but if Jon and Dany join together they'll take Westeros in 1 since half of Westeros will be with Jon and a couple with Dany

Tywin was also the richest man in Westeros living with well established wartime economies, and only needed to provide armour for like 100 dudes. Additionally, they made up like 1% of his army. Not 99%, like with Dany.

Where the fuck is Dany going to get armour for 100,000 cavalry, and is she also going to get them all actual swords too? Because Jorah demonstrated in Season 1 that Dothraki Arakhs (sythe-swords), which they all use, are totally ineffective at penetrating armour.

idk where 99% comes to. she has 8000 unsullied (give or take some lost during battle) plus 2,000 Second Sons. so 10,000 of them. Even if dotraki had 100,000 which I doubt they are even close to that high that's still 10% not dorthaki but i would put it as a higher precentage based on estimates that i just thought up in my head

The 100,000 is a lowball estimate. She has the entire dothraki horde with her now. Drogo's alone was 40,000.

If it's less than 100,000, then she has am even smaller chance of winning the war

And even with 10,000 trained soldiers? 2,000 of those are sellswords, who will abandon her cause if things get out of hand (see: Stannis Baratheon) and the 8,000 unsullied have had their numbers significantly depleted over the amount of time they've spent fighting the harpies. Being slaves, there also aren't very many who are groomed for command. Even Grey Worm was just common soldier. That won't matter against the hundreds of thousands in the combined seven kingdoms. The Reach alone sent 100,000 men for Renly's battle with Stannis.

I mean do you actually think, from a narrative standpoint at least, that Dany will succeed? Thay she'll kill every major character in the show and conquer everything, destroying the noble houses and knocking down every fortress in Westeros, with her army of murdering, rapist, savages? I think GRRM has pretty brilliantly set up one of the secret villains of the series by making them out to be a hero .

Westeros will be attacked from the North by the Walkers, and from the south by Dany and her dragons. A song of Ice and Fire, if you will.
