These are three films that are hihgly praised around the world as being among the best ever. They are also well respected in this forum. They are all among my favourite films. My question is: what faults do these films have? I don't want this thread to be a bashing thread because that is not the point of this exercise. This is more for people who are big fans of the films, but are confident enough in there respect for the films to point out legitimate criticism. I do not consider length to be a legitimate complaint. Pacing maybe, but not length. Lets have a good discuss about the faults of some of our favourite films. I would really like to hear from someone like Jack and have him discuss any faults he has with 2001. I think this could be interesting. It should only deepen our respect for the films.
