"A definitive love-it-or-hate-it flick"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Years ago, I gave up trying to argue the merits of the film with those who find it tedious or plodding. I've come to accept the fact that ‘2001’ is a definitive love-it-or-hate-it flick that will forever split audiences. Still, whatever you may ultimately think of the film itself, ‘2001: A Space Odyssey’ will literally haunt your brain after you watch it. In my opinion, every film fan owes it to themselves to experience ‘2001’ at least once in their lives.

Admittedly, ‘2001: A Space Odyssey’ isn't for everyone – but in my opinion it's the single most important science fiction film in the history of cinema. It has influenced film as we know it and deserves all of the clout and recognition that can be heaped on its silent shoulders. Likewise, this Blu-ray edition is a must-have release, featuring a jaw-droppingly gorgeous transfer, an elaborate PCM audio track, and a wealth of supplemental features. It's an upgrade in every sense of the word.

"Improved by Blu Ray"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

When watched on DVD the viewer really cant comprehend what audiences saw at theatres in 1969. This movie, already one of my favourites, is so improved by BluRay that it is an entirely new experience watching it.

"2001 stands the test of time."
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

If ever a film was made for Blu-ray, it's 2001 A Space Odyssey, even thought it pre-date the technology by more than a couple of decades. The rich storyline is as enigmatic as ever, but the visuals are every bit as stunning and vibrant as the original theater release. Who can forget that magnificent scene of the shuttle approaching the space station, to the dreamy accompanyment of Strauss' Blue Danube. A great cinema moment.

This Blu-ray version is a must have for any film buff.

"Amazing!"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Ahead of it's time even today “2001: A Space Odyssey” is one of the most influential and… unusual films ever made. With stunning visuals that hold up well even today and being little more then matte paintings, models, mirrors, lights and drops of ink in water and a timeless score. This film shows humanity's desire for exploration in a way that was only natural in 1968 when the Space Age was front page news and the danger of technology and our desire for perfection.

Description

The monoliths have been watching us. They gave us the "evolutionary kick in the pants" we needed to survive at the Dawn of Time. In 1999, we discovered a second monolith on the moon.. Now, in the year 2001, the S.S. Discovery and its crew, Captains Dave Bowman and Frank Poole, and their onboard computer, HAL-9000, must discover what alien force is watching us…
