Ep. 276: Classics Catch-Up (or) Hot Garbage? -- "2001: A Space Odyssey" (1968) / "2010: The Year We Make Contact" (1984)
The "Dirty Sons of Pitches" are going deep into the reaches of space to touch the unknown, with a double feature based upon the books of noted scifi author Arthur C. Clarke. First is Stanley Kubrick's ground-breaking, much heralded "2001," and next for the cult film is the much lesser regarded follow-up, "2010," released in 1985 and reflective of the Cold War era. Ben and Nate watch both and debate whether or not "2010" might actually be the better movie after all.

Episode 276 includes:
-DC everything! "The Batman" trailer! "The Suicide Squad" re-introduction! Snyder Cut! CGI cats made of David Thewlis' mustache?
-"Ava" and "The Sleepover" are generic genre titles that don't exactly deserve your 90 minutes.
-Classic Film -- "2001: A Space Odyssey" (1968)
-Stanley Kubrick's sci-fi touchstone with all the very slow moving space majesty you'd want to put yourself to sleep.
-Cult Film -- "2010: The Year We Make Contact" (1984)
-The far more accessible and straightforward movie that goes to lengths to explain points that were merely ambiguous, or confusing, from the original.
