I have seen this film many many times, last night on my hd tv in blu ray, and looked absolutely amazing, this is a masterpiece, this is cinema's mona lisa, absolutely spellbound watching it, gets better with every viewing
Even my 6-year-old son watches it in complete silence.. There are no words to describe it.
I only recently watched this movie, and was scared about the possibility that it'd be too old to watch anymore. It didn't matter one bit. This movie is still stunning. Brilliant piece of art. It's now one of my favorite movies ever
Best Sci-fi Movie Ever Made
this film is the definition of overrated
2001' requires you to watch in a different way than you normally watch films. It requires you to relax. It requires you to experience strange and beautiful images without feeling guilty that there is no complex plot or detailed characterization. Don't get me wrong, plots and characters are good, but they're not the be-all and end-all of everything. There are different KINDS of film, and to enjoy '2001' you must tune your brain to a different wavelength and succumb to the pleasure of beauty, PURE beauty, unfettered by the banal conventions of everyday films.
