2001 is a one-of-a-kind movie. Kubrick has a unique story telling style, so unlike Hollywood typical, spoon fed linear stories.

Interesting point, although the movie still confuses me.

I just finished reading a biography of Alan Turing (as in The Imitation Game) and it seems his ideas (over 50 years before 2001) were used in creating HAL.

Please for the love of God NOOOO!

 

2001 is a one-of-a-kind movie. Kubrick has a unique story telling style, so unlike Hollywood typical, spoon fed linear stories.

2010 the sequel was made in a typical linear style which some people prefer. That's enough. The original Kubrick version needs to be left alone.

 

It's akin to Kubrick's THE SHINING. The remake was horrible, while the original Kubrick is slowly becoming the classic art piece as more people see it and appreciate the genius of the storytelling.

Morgan Freeman has said the film adaptation will be made (in 3D !) - just needs to get a good script. I'm looking forward to this one myself. All I have to add is.. hurry up!

Thanks, joe.

 

Here's some wiki:

 

On November 3, 2014, it was reported that Syfy had ordered a mini-series adaptation of 3001: The Final Odyssey into production for broadcast in 2015. The mini-series will be executive-produced by Ridley Scott, David W. Zucker and Stuart Beattie; the latter will also be the primary scriptwriter. The estates of both Clarke and 2001: A Space Odyssey director Stanley Kubrick were reported as having "offered their full support", but the extent of their involvement is not known at this time.

---------------------------

It was reported on Yahoo Entertainment in 2000 that MGM and actor/director Tom Hanks were in discussions regarding turning both 2061: Odyssey Three and 3001: The Final Odyssey into movies. (Hanks would reportedly play Frank Poole in the 3001 film.) An update in 2001 stated that there was no further development on the project.

"The nearest thing to an artist-in-residence from outer space." That's how Isaac Asimov once described Robert T. McCall, the renowned illustrator, conceptual artist, space-scene painter, official NASA artist, and creator of legendary movie posters including 2001: A Space Odyssey.

Will be shown here on TCM at 8:00 PM EDT this evening.

 

Sometimes the part where Dave gets sucked into the monolith seems to take f-o-r-e-v-e-r.. , but I just go make a sandwich during that part. 

 

Well, it won't let me out of the box after editing. KD, that's the best part! Just stay seated and groove!

Kubrick's visionary film remains one of the masterpieces of a sci-fi cinema- yes it can be a bit slow at times-( it seems to take for ever to get to Jupiter. )  The still amazing special effects are timeless and this is still one of the most realistic depiction of space travel.  And like "Lawrence of Arabia" it's   movie that must be experience in a BIG SCREEN- why doesn't MGM re-released it for IMAX?!

I like this movie - a lot. Sometimes the part where Dave gets sucked into the monolith seems to take f-o-r-e-v-e-r.. , but I just go make a sandwich during that part. From reading posts here over the years, especially this past year, this film is not liked by so many - along with it's contemporary; Lawrence of Arabia.
