    2001: A Space Odyssey is a rare movie experience, one of mesmerizing visuals, meticulous craft, full of valuable interpretations, and a work to stand the test of time. Even as computer-generated imagery (CGI) has given animation, action films, and fantasy pictures an antiseptic sleekness and a practical way to showcase certain unforeseen sequences as if they could really happen, films like Star Trek: A Motion Picture, its corresponding TV series, and 2001: A Space Odyssey existed in a time where…

    Forty-six years later and the mysteries of 2001: A Space Odyssey remain unspoilt and it's as beautiful as ever.

    Kubrick's exploration of the unknown universe is majestic in it's storytelling and on a scale that has never being attempted since. There can be a million interpretations of 2001 but I have always found that it's better enjoyed when it is thought about in the simplest of terms. For me, 2001 is a celebration of the race to the stars and…

    I think I'm going to be hated for this but I honestly don't know what all the hype is surrounding this movie. My attention started to drift off into space around the 30 minute mark.

    It did have its good parts but overall I did not enjoy it.

    Still trying to form my thoughts on this one. I know that I liked it, I'm just not sure to what extent. There are definitley a lot of great moments throughout, but there are a few boring moments as well. One thing's for sure though, I'll be thinking about this one for a long time since I didn't totally understand everything on this viewing.

    This is the real deal. Much like Hal is the peak of human development, 2001 is the peak of filmaking.

    The genius is not in how much Stanley Kubrick does in "2001: A Space Odyssey," but in how little. This is the work of an artist so sublimely confident that he doesn't include a single shot simply to keep our attention. He reduces each scene to its essence, and leaves it on screen long enough for us to contemplate it, to inhabit it in our imaginations. Alone among science-fiction movies, “2001" is not concerned with thrilling us, but with inspiring…

    This was my second time viewing 2001 on a large screen, and it went much more smoothly than the first (in which I had a splitting migraine headache). At this point, the movie feels like an old familiar friend, even though it's very. deliberately. paced compared to the children of Star Wars, where space travel is a flurry of instantaneous cuts and rocket fuel. It's a nice film to watch with a crowd of people who are into it, because…
