To each their own! I think it falls prey to the same trap as a lot of seventies science fiction - a phenomenon I call 'glacial majesty', where the filmmakers show you an allegedly impressive special effect, for a very long time, without anything really happening. As the special effect ages (poorly), the tenuous value of lingering on it for a long damn time evaporates.

I was born in '78 - I don't have time for Stanley Kubrick to show me a space station rotating for ten minutes of Zarathustra.
