    It's not that this is my favorite movie of all time, it's just that I've never seen a film that's better.

    I did my critic's duty on Friday with this, looking at 2001's technological themes and the divine privilege of its images. I've not a lot to add at the moment, but my friend and I agreed the fleeting moments of embodied, 'subjective' camerawork (the rotating handheld as Dave hones in on HAL's logic center) are jolting. Like all the humans in this film, Dave is not one to divulge his feelings, yet the righteous fury to be seen and felt here fuels mankind's final act of violence and leads, some ambiguous span of time after, to our species's obsolescence.

    Things to do before I die...

    1) See 2001: A Space Odyssey on the big screen.
    2) Pet a baby cheetah.
    3) ?

    First time watching this and it's my first Kubrick feature. I know, right?

    So this is where I'd usually put a short quote from the movie. However, in the case of Kubrick's 2001, that would be an injustice. So, I guess this is what it looks like when a director is keen on every single shot in the movie. Everything in space flows in perfect synchronization with the music and every shot is lighted up and set so well that…

    This is a movie I hated on my first viewing. I thought it was okay on my second. I dug it on the third. I really liked it on the fourth. And tonight from my fifth viewing I can say that I love it.

    On each rewatch I notice more things. I love the loosely tied narrative. The colors and special effects with the equally great sound design and music. This is an experience more than anything else. And might…

    Overly long and tedious. It entertains some interesting themes when it's not actively putting you to sleep. Nowhere near as interesting or entertaining as most of his other films. The best thing this film has going for it is the effective special effects along with set and sound design.

    I will surely revisit this one down the line to see if anything else remains to be discovered that's worth discovering.

    "2001: A Space Odyssey" is a film that requires various viewings. My initial reaction to the movie consisted of, bewilderment, appreciation, and boredom. Although I enjoyed the film, I considered it tremendously overrated considering the bland characters, painfully drawn-out scenes, and lack of emotional investment. I have never thought more about one particular film than I have with "2001: A Space Odyssey." After my second viewing, I am currently amazed at the amount of brilliance that this film possesses.

    "2001"…
