Good afternoon, gentlemen. I am a HAL 9000 computer. I became operational at the H.A.L. plant in Urbana, Illinois on the 12th of January 1992. My instructor was Mr. Langley, and he taught me to sing a song. If you’d like to hear it I can sing it for you.

film meme {½} decades ☰ 1960s

Hundreds of full-length films were produced in the 1960s. Historical drama films continued to include epics. Psychological horror films extended beyond the typical monster horror into more twisted films. Comedy films became more elaborate, setting in more comedy-dramas and welcomed a new form of satire because of the success of Kubrick’s 1964 film Dr. Stangelove. Spy films welcomed more tech. And fantasy and sci-fi films were made with a more wider range of special effects.  Beginning in the middle of the decade due to the start of the cultural revolution and the abolition of the Hays Code, films became increasingly experimental and daring and were taking shape of what was to define the 1970s.
