RE: Saw it again, but on PPV last night, with subtitles

I did not like Arrival. It's probably because after talking to some others I didn't get it. Kind of like the ending of the Birds. I'll have to rent it again.
When I was about 12, I'm 60 now, I took a bus trip intown with a friend to see 2001 in about 1967 0r 68. Before the movie started a man came out an announced there would be a meeting for those who wanted to go and discuss the movie and to see if they understood the plot. We never went. I didn't get it and wondered at the time if the apes in the beginning were real or not. The old man in bed at the ending was haunting to me still to this day.
Time went on and I was a freshman at U.R.I. in 75/76 about 18 or 19 years old. It was a Friday night and 2001 was playing at this giant theater. It was jammed to the rafters and pot smoke was everywhere.
It was dead quiet when the movie began and the words came on the screen...(The dawn of mankind).
At that silent critical point a stoner calmly exclaimed Where's Tony Orlando? A small laugh began that spread like a virus thru the crowd and that 2001 movie became like the ending brawl scene in Blazing Saddles.
I still don't know what the monolith meant....Mark Korda
