The BEST Kubrick was Dr. Strangelove. Peter Sellers as Strangelove, the President, and a British officer named Mandrake facing off against General Jack D. Ripper? What could have a better ending than Slim Pickens riding an H-Bomb, buckin' bronc style to Doomsday? I ask you, what?
For me, the key to appreciating 2001: A Space Odyssey was to read Clarke's novel first and then see the movie. Large portions of the movie can be difficult to follow without the context the novel provides.
Book was as boring as the movie, just took longer to complete. But to be honest I was never a fan of Arthur C Clarke to begin with. I also did not read it in my first language, so I had to do it with a reference dictionary, which probably didn't help.
A great "Art" film. The story would have come across better if Kubrick had not removed the narration nine weeks before the film's release. There is so much more to the story that is in the book. For my money the special effects still stand up well. 2010 was a straight up action sequel which I also enjoyed.
Today i gave an assessment for asp.net and Sql Server for some recruiter on ikmnet.com and overall my assessment went up and down but the final result was quite impressive not what i was expecting it was in 90 percentile overall.
What i saw was the questions were quite tricky and one could learn deep about the concept or feature of language being asked.
I didn't recorded my session that way i could had questions to review later, but i avoided that as it didn't looked ethically right and second reason was i might be disqualified from the test.
So i am looking for forums like ikmnet where we can have mock assessments to practice and improve our concepts and knowledge about different topics in software development, and more specifically asp.net and c# specifics and SQL Server stuff. Can anybody here aware of any thing like this?
It's not about just passing online quiz, the questions were quite interesting and can conclude how deeply one knows the subject, so I was looking for that kind of platforms where we can practice with Mock tests to improve our knowledge
