Welcome to our first edition of Ketchup! A new member to the Popcorn Optional family where we go back and review classic films that none of us have ever seen. This week we are kicking things off by celebrating the 50th anniversary of 2001: A Space Odyssey.

Listen in as we review the film as well as talk the new Predator trailer, directors we would like to see be involved in Star Wars, films that should never be rebooted or remade, and as always end with our content of the week.

Listen in as we get into what makes this film stand the test of time as well as nominate the 13th class of Honorable Mensches and as always end with our content of the week.
