The Hubble telescope has just captured this image of a galaxy being violently ripped apart
“[T]he third section of the movie also contains an image that’s remarkably Kirby-like. When Dave enters the Discovery’s computer center to “kill” HAL, he’s shot from below, looking like one of Kirby’s iconic superhumans. As an artist, Kirby made sense for 2001, because he excelled at drawing futuristic technology and he thought in widescreen. Visually, the 2001 Marvel Treasury is a thing of beauty, with the oversized format (10 by 14 inches rather than than the more common 7.25 by 10.5) suiting Kirby’s preference for big panels and two-page splashes. Kirby borrows some compositions directly from the film, but he adds his own dynamic poses and granite faces. He gives a somewhat stately film a jolt of Kirby electricity.”
Those who believe Steven Spielberg “ruined” Stanley Kubrick’s vision when he took over directing A.I. Artificial Intelligence after Kubrick’s death need only look at Kubrick’s original commissioned concept art to see how slavishly faithful Spielberg was to Kubrick’s vision.

Is an imaginary creature a case of mistaken identity?
The first time Dave Shealy saw a skunk ape, he says, he was ten years old. It was 1974, a few years after his father came upon a set of footprints left by the creature—an Everglades version of Bigfoot named for its supposedly pungent odor.

"conclusion: dinosaurs" is still my favorite rebuttal to just about anything tbh.
Second perhaps only to “Therefore: aliens”
