James and Thomas discuss 2001: A Space Odyssey, the classic science fiction film directed by Stanley Kubrick.

While Thomas thinks the film is a masterpiece and also very dumb, James embarrasses himself by suggesting that the monolith is sacramental. The film also brings out James’ deep-seated rage at his car’s seat belt indicator.

Next time, we discuss the 1939 film Stagecoach, directed by John Ford and starring John Wayne. Watch it, then join the discussion in our Facebook group!
