Over long, slow paced, & too minimalistic in terms of actual storytelling. Visually, it's absolutely stunning, but not Kubrick's best film.

Could someone please tell me what the big deal is about this movie, please? I do enjoy Stanley Kubrick a great deal, Dr Strangelove, The Shining, Clockwork Orange, Eyes Wide Shut, all great movies. But this movie is called a "Space Odyssey", it was an odyssey I stayed awake while I watched it, or didn't kill myself.

2001: A Space Odyssey is a breath taking look at a possible future through the eyes of Arthur C. Clarke and under the direction of Stanley Kubrick.

A shame that they never worked with each other again. Imagine the possibilities.     The movie …

But this movie is called a "Space Odyssey", it was an odyssey I stayed awake while I watched it.    The Cinematography was wonderful, the music was wonderful, the special effects were great (for 1968), but come on the story was very weak. I mean I did get the point about man, where …

Pros: the suspence and continued mystery     Cons: the suspence and contined mystery      When this movie was released (yea, I was around and a full-fledged adult then) the year 2001 seemed beyond my realm of reasoning. Now, half way through the year 2000, with the year 2001 peeking over the horizon, I decided to take another look at a film that filled me with trepidation when released. Oddly enough, I find most of the circumstances in the movie trite and …
