Flawless.

This is the maximum expression of a cinematic experience. Witnessing the rise of man over its primitive peers and assure its position as the dominant species on the planet to then outdo himself and assume pride as they travel to the stars, think that they're better than they really are, only to be smacked right in the face when HAL shows his "evil" side. Man overcomes his primary weakness, mortality, to then ascend into a greater being destined to guide the rest of humanity.

Now I want to become an omnipotent space baby. Who wants to join in?
