El Santo, El Enmascarado de Plata, Contra Los Bambinos Del Escpacio
I watched 2001: A Space Odyssey for the first time the other night. It's a pretty good movie, although certainly too slow for its own good in some parts. And I can see how it became known as a drug movie, because while I don't partake, I imagine that a lot of the movie's visuals (and not just the star gate stuff from the end, but even some of the sets and other elements) would be simultaneously fascinating and terrifying if you were tripping balls. That said, I'm not here to review 2001, largely because anything that can be said about it has already been said.

What I want to talk about is an idea that struck me completely out of the blue while watching the beginning: I want to see someone make a luchador film that opens with an almost-identical sequence, except that one of the apes has a luchador mask on. Then, instead of an ape's discovery of how to use a bone as a club, "Also Sprach Zarathustra" gets played over a slow-motion sequence of the luchador ape figuring out how to suplex another ape.

Get on this, please, lucha filmmakers.
