2001: A Space Odyssey

2001: A Space Odyssey ★★★½

I hope to one day watch this in IMAX. I just can't imagine how good this movie sounds in IMAX.

This is a random anecdote but when I volunteered at Fan Expo a couple of years ago, Keir Dullea was a guest, along with Gary Lockwood. I'm pretty sure that year was 2001: A Space Odyssey's 50th anniversary. At the end of the expo weekend, the guests often sign their banners which were placed above them in the autograph areas. These banners are then given to the volunteers. The volunteer whose raffle number was drawn first chose Keir's banner. One of the volunteer coordinators told us that as Keir was signing his banner, he said something like: "Who would ever want my banner?" I find this funny, considering that the very first banner chosen was Keir's. It's pretty cool and goes to show how iconic 2001: A Space Odyssey is.
